Love this place. Food is consistently very delicious. Fresh tasting salad, mussels are to die for, grilled spicy shrimp appetizer outstanding (with guacamole), short ribs, fish of the day and chicken schnitzel, outstanding.

My uncle comes here about twice a month and my family, in large parties of 12+, come for my mother's birthday once a year. The menu is dynamic and affordable, complimenting the cozy but suave atmosphere of the place. I recommend!

Haven't been here for years. Had the Monday night special and it was good but small left there 20 minutes ago and still hungry. The staff are improved but seem focused on speed not timing. The difference between efficient and effective. The result is that...More

Sauvignon is definitely one of the very best restaurants in the Beaches. We had the shrimp starter, soup du jour, scallops and the schnitzel. Everything was delicious. Service was quite attentive and friendly. Ambiance is casually elegant. Wine list covers most varietals quite comprehensively, but...More
