I didn't get to experience the restaurant's dine in charm, but the food makes me reluctant to actually return. There's so much good food in NO. This place is pretty generic. The gumbo was okay. The crab cakes were mediocre at best.

With all the food choices in NOLA, I'm not sure I would make a return visit to Sassafras. It was the choice of our friend (and actually not her first choice). I just found the menu very limiting especially signature dishes. Otherwise the menu was basically the same po'boys and fried seafood combos you can get at any other NOLA restaurant. Our friend ordered the stuffed bell pepper which she liked. I got the smothered okra and shrimp -- after eating some of it, I remember thinking where was the shrimp? It was definitely a lot more okra than shrimp. The other person in our party got a bowl of uninspired gumbo. It was a nice quiet restaurant. Not crowded on a week night but also off the well-traveled paths. (It was out in a neighborhood strip mall). Service was attentive and we had a nice leisurely evening but there was nothing that memorable to cause us to seek out a return visit especially with all the other choices you have. Perhaps its well-known Sunday brunch might bring us back.

Great food but very slow service. If you are not in a rush I would recommend checking it out! Not wheelchair friendly

Excellent staff and hostess, neighborhood establishment, varied menus of creole Eating, very good. The wait time was shorter than my last visit and I am pleased With that. I like the atmosphere and the cost is affordable. I think it's demand exceeds The output......very popular for locals
