Sage Student Bistro - Institute for the Culinary Arts
A cut above the restThe service is the best in Omaha and the food is superb. They'll give you just the right attention to make you feel comfortable and enjoy your meal. Definitely a food experience. You'll leave wondering why many restaurants in Omaha don't have this kind of service.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceThis was fabulous. Great place to come for a 5 course meal with reasonable price. Relaxing and friendly environment and just a special time to enjoy great food! Bethany Weaver...great job on the menu, the presentation and table side conversation!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMone of the best in omahathe waitstaff are charming as they nervously serve you, but it is all for a good cause - the appropriate preparation of culinary arts professionals. the food was outstanding and we appreciated that week's chef making the rounds visiting tables and explaining the various dishes. he will be sucessful in the industry if he keeps the demeanor and level of professionalism. i would recommend Metro's Sage Bistro to anyone - foodies and nonfoodies alike. it is one of the best restaurants in the greater omaha area and would highly recommend it to anyone in town or visiting from out ot fown. i like the portion sizes and that they support local growers and producers. great gem, make reservations and sporadic schedule for most - hard to plan.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Time FindReally fun experience. Got the Prix Frix menu. Lots of fun to try new foods. Waiter was great and explained all the food to us. Brought in our own wine and $10 corkage fee. OR you have a wine pairing with your Prix Frix menu for only $10 more per person.
Can't wait to go back! Our waiter, Andrew, gave us a tour of the facility after we ate. So much fun!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious adventureThis restaurant is part of a culinary school, and the service and food preparation is by students. Service is always earnest and charming, it is often (but not always) polished and professional. Food is generally delicious. Patrons are asked to fill out a comment/report card. It is a fun experience and it's great to interact with the students. Setting is lovely. Restaurant is only open Mon, Tues, Wed and Thurs so it doesn't compete with "normal" restaurants.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWho's teaching whom?This student institution ought to be teaching the rest of Omaha how to present. Every plate of the amazing prix fixe menu brought "oooohs" from our table. With food this bold and innovative, we were grateful for a patient server who answered our zillion questions. Both head chefs visited our table, clearly proud of what they were creating and willing to chat in detail about how they do it. So much fun! I can't wait to go back.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMIconicWe had a wonderful experience. We ordered the prix fixe menu and loved it. Outstanding job by

They had not been there before though they live close by. They absolutely loved it. Everyone's meal was wonderful. Sad thing though, they only have outdoor sitting during the day hours. Too bad, they have a great patio, but no service outside during dinner.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a great dining experienceThis is a great dining experience for food lovers, the food and service are excellent and very innovative.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional experience thatExceptional experience that helps you fall back in love with food again if you haven't taken the time to rekindle the romance in a while.

The only comment is the duck was undercooked and tough. Overall I highly recommend to everyone..............We were always treated like royality.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat place to visit againgreat place to visit again and again. Wonderful food and atmosphere, will certainly please everyone,it certainly did us. Best kept secret in town.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMPamper yourself delicious/nutritiusElegant dining on a budget. The staff is eager to please and knowledgable. When they don't know something they find out. Chef Jason comes to your table and explains. All foods are fresh and homemade. If you want rare or raw, you'll get it. Very much like in France. You wait between courses - so don't fill up on bread. Soup was a warm, not hot, but that was because you pour the hot broth over sushi grade raw cool tuna and veggies. I felt like royalty with all the staff (students) waiting one us. Meets and fishes are top grade, tender, and safe. I would prefer they invest in some free range animal products and locally grown veggies. I'm sure growing their own food on the campus would expand the learning opportunity for both MCC students.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMSage Bistro is a hidden gem.Sage Bistro is a hidden gem. The service is equal to or better than any upscale restaurant.
The food was delicious and the presentation a feast for the eyes. Dessert was incredible, a perfect ending to a fabulous meal. We had not dined at the Bistro before and found it to be a wonderful surprise. The service brought back memories of the elegant hotel dining rooms from decades past but the food was as novel as tomorrow. We'll be back.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSage Student BistroI loved the relaxed cozy atmosphere. The lighting was dim but perfect which added to the cozy environment.
