A word from Sage - Aria
Sage is James Beard Foundation Award-wining Chef Shawn McClain’s first venture outside of Chicago. Introducing his distinctive style to ARIA, Chef McClain combines farm-to-table produce, artisanal meats & sustainable seafood with an emphasis on simple, clean flavors & seasonal ingredients. Sage's award-wining cocktail program visits America's classic libations & rewrites them with a contemporary edge through natural ingredients & limited-production boutique liquors.

The 112-seat dining room & 49-seat lounge display a seductive & comfortable elegance. Designer Jacques Garcia, know as much for his opulent French style as his pure-form minimalism, echoes Chef McClain's culinary sensibility with a refined, modern aesthetic brimming with character & whimsy. Hand-painted murals by Paulin Paris offer reinterpretations of famous early modernist paintings.

Ever raising the bar, Sage combines a brilliant culinary team, an ideal location near ARIA's main entrance.

    The service was great. My water stayed full, and the staff was the perfect amount of attentive. The environment is cozy and stylish. The food did not impress me though. My steak was cooked how I wanted but had a surprisingly bland taste. The mashed potatoes were just plain creamed potatoes. I was very underwhelmed by the food here. There was nothing worth getting again or recommending, and that's why I will not return.

    We had excellent service from the host stand, to the server and sommelier. The slow poached egg starter was hands down one of the best dishes I've ever had; we had no idea how much it would blow our minds. We also loved the beef tartar, scallops, and pork loin. It was a bit dark inside but otherwise it was a terrific experience throughout.

    My parents and I chose to dine at Sage very last minute, but it was one of the best decisions of the vacation. Dinner was absolutely fantastic. I have grown up on the finest dinning on the East Coast and this was quite comparable. Everything that we had, including the bread and butter, was on-point. The best Wagyu beef tartar I have honestly ever had. We ordered a wide variety of fish and meat, nothing was disappointing. Promise that you will be very happy with anything on the menu. Almost forgot, I loved the dark subtle ambiance of the restaurant, great vibe. Enjoy!

    There are so many dining options in Vegas but This restaurant really stands out. The food is unbelievable. Farm poached egg, and sweetbreads are 2 of my favorite. Both outstanding! The service is always outstanding. Jason really guides you through the menu and is very attentive. Server assistants maintained the table in between each course, waters were always full. Between Mastro's and Sage why would I ever need to leave that area of the strip?! Can't wait to go back. Nicely done!

    This is a cool restaurant and I would recommend and return to it. The dishes are creative and tasty, although the portions are laughably small. The entire table broke into laughter when dessert came and was literally the size of a fifty cent piece! We got the tasting menu, so maybe that is why, but two of the diners in our group of 8 actually ordered steaks and more food in between the tasting courses! Even those portions were small in comparison to most, especially given that they requested "the biggest steak you have!"

    I went with my two sisters and our friend. One in our group is vegetarian and they do not have a vegetarian menu. We were a bit disappointed, but our server offered suggestions on how the chef could alter the selection to accommodate her. She was truly impressed by the flavors, presentation, and overall experience of each and every dish! Additionally, I am allergic to berries and fish, and the staff went well above and beyond to ensure my meals did not have either ingredient. The beet salad I ordered was by far the best beet salad I have had. My sister had the heirloom tomato salad which was also excellent. My sisters ordered the scallops, which they said was prepared perfectly, and the desserts were divine. We will be returning!

    Tried out Sage for a birthday dinner after hearing rave reviews about the food! The reviews were right, the food was amazing as is the service! Definitely reccomend the Maine Day Boat Scallops dish! Best scallops and possibly dish I've ever had! Special thank you to our server Marcus who made our dining experience perfect. Working in the restaurant industry for years, you know a great server when you see one, and that was him! If you're looking for a restaurant with great food presented beautifully and great service then try Sage!

    We visited Sage Sunday night for dinner and the restaurant was busy. We were seated promptly by a very polite hostess. Our sever (a French guy) did a great job. He offered us grilled octopus, beef carpaccio and foie gras - a great choice. For entrees we choose scallops and branzino fish. The food was amaizing. Superb wine list, moderate prices. Our Somm, Christian, paired our food with different wines - great job, right on the spot. Everything was outstanding - food, service and ambiance - we will visit Sage again definitely. Highly recomended!

    It was very good but not my greatest find dining experience in LV. Oysters are not served in a traditional manner and I feel there should be an option. Again, good but not the best.

    I have stayed at Aria many times and this was my first visit to Sage. We were 15 minutes late and they were holding our table. We chose the tasting menu without the wine/beer add on. Our server, I believe his name is Jason, suggested a French wine that was fantastic, we drank two bottles. Both the service and the food were terrific. They always mentioned ingredients in the dishes as 2 guests have food allergies. I will certainly return the next time I am in Vegas. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

    My wife and I recently dined at Sage in Aria as part of our ten-year anniversary. The experience was among the most incredible dining adventures we have ever had. We ordered the Chef's Menu, which was several courses, and we each had a Manhattan cocktail. The drink was balanced and fragrant, sweet and smooth, just like a good Manhattan ought to be. The meal started with a brilliant amuse-bouche, a simple but delicious cold soup. The dinner progressed, and the quality of the food and service never faltered. I must say that the Sea Scallops in Salted Caramel broth is just about the most amazing thing I have ever had the privilege to eat. I'm still in awe at the incredible assortment of subtle flavors the chef presented.

Mother in law had the special beef belly. These folks know how to cook - well. The salads are great as well. Skip desert - too weird - and get something at the cutesy cake place in the Aria.

    The restaurant itself is very nice. It has an awesome bar with a very good selection of single malt scotches. However, the menu items were way too funky. It appears that every item on the menu was created for the sake of being unique, seemingly without consideration for the actual taste of the resulting plate. I would suggest keeping it a little simpler or at least having a few items for the more common folk like me. I also found that $490 for a party of 5 with no wine or dessert (had to,rush to,a,show) was a bit steep.
