    We were a party of 9, celebrating my son's 8th birthday (his choice). As usual, Sage did not dissapoint. Service was great. Mike was funny and engaging. Food was great as always. The dessert sampler for my son was a nice touch. The hostess came and invited my kids to feed the fish outside which was really special. It's always a treat to dine at Sage, whether for a celebration like this or just dinner for 2.

    have been to Sage many times and always enjoy the food and service. Picked Sage for our anniversary dinner. Rick is our favorite server and glad to see him back. good wine list. Only caution is the bar music can be loud. If you want quiet, request a table or booth away from the bar area.

    It had been several years since I had been for dinner. There was a time that Sage was one of the better restaurants in the area. Well, the times have changed. The cheesy guitar playing too loudly immediately sets the tone that Sage is more of a bar than nice place for dinner. Service was slow and disheveled. Multiple servers worked the table but drinks always went empty and it would take several minutes to get anything. Our party of four tried multiple dishes from salads to a burger to steaks. We ordered scallops for apps which in the old Sage days were best around. Not anymore. None of the food was beyond average and most was just disappointing. We won't be going back. Too many other good choices these days.

    Overall, the food is comparable to other local restaurants focused on similar demographics but prices are a bit higher. Service was a little slow at first. They seemed to be understaffed. Food wasn't bad, but not the best either. Waiter was professional and offered appropriate wine suggestions. Drink prices were high for the area ($10 for a middle of the road vodka Martini). I've eaten at Sage on several different occasions and every time I leave a little disappointed. I'm not sure I'll be returning. Mediocre, but pricy food, pricy drinks and just a generally blah atmosphere isn't worth the $$.

    My group chose Sage Woodfire Tavern for a departmental celebration. We specifically needed a restaurant with round tables, good food and moderate to light noise levels. We got all three with our choice of Sage. Our waitress was superb, and made our dining experience even better. I had the meatloaf. It was tasty and filling. My co-workers enjoyed their meals as well.

    We have been going to Sage in Alpharetta for years now. We are never disappointed. We have had private dining experience and romantic dinners, and they have always been the best ever. I would not recommend taking small children to this nice upscale restaurant. People looking for a secluded, romantic and quite get away do Not want to put up with small children. I do feel that the restaurant should have a dress code. This venue is not the place for shorts, T shirts and flip-flops. Enjoy!!!!!!

    Our group really enjoyed this dining experience. We needed a seating earlier than our reservation, and being early in the day, the staff was able to have a great table for us when we arrived. The menu had lots to choose from, and every dish was excellent. The wait staff was very helpful, and the service was great. It was our best dinner dining experience in Alpharetta for the 5 years we have been coming to this town for special family events. In summary, great food, good ambience, and find staff.

    We took some friends to Sage on Friday night and once again found the food to be beautifully prepared. We like the varied menu and appreciate the the three or four special entree items that change seasonally. We had the seafood broil, lamb shank, and filets and all were excellent. Our waiters were attentive and had excellent knowledge of the food and drink. Also, on weekends their is live music. We had a very nice classical guitar player in the bar. We will be back.

    Service was excellent, food was delicious and atmosphere was relaxing but fun! Had live jazz soloist in the bar area that you could slightly hear in the restaurant. Waitress was attentive but not overwhelming. Food was great but my only compliant would be the online menu was not up to date significantly so the dish I went there for was not available which was disappointing.

    Sage is an excellent restaurant that has been part of the Alpharetta scene for around 12 years. The quality of food and the service has always been consistently high. Last Friday night I celebrated the birthdays of two friends at the Sage. We ordered a Bruschetta appetizer and main courses of Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken, Parmesan Crusted Free Range Chicken Breast, and a Chef's Special humongous 16 ounce Pork Chop. The food, service, and the drinks, including Cosmopolitans for the birthday girls and Layer Cake Shiraz for the big spender, equaled an outstanding evening. I didn't find that the bill was particularly pricey, especially considering the quality of the food and the outstanding service. Keep it up!

    SAGE is a classy-looking place with prices to match; not exorbitant but higher than we were expecting. We didn't go for the high end steaks and such, so maybe that's why, but our dinners were mediocre. For some reason they take away the bread plates before your entree arrives, so I guess you're not supposed to have bread after that. Overall, we were disappointed.

    As always, we had a delicious meal at Sage. Service was poor, server even admitted it mid way thru but even with that, she didn't improve. Spoke with the manager and he was very sympathetic. We will definitely return. We love the chicken stuffed with goat cheese and the chocolate molten cake.

    We went to this restaurant before the James Taylor concert (party of 6). We arrived at 6:15. At 7:20 I still only had a glass of water. The waiter finally comes over and says that he is going to be honest...the food was not coming out. We left after an hour and 15 minutes with no food. The manager never even stopped at the table. We eat at restaurants several night a week and you may encounter some small issues but this was ridiculous! Will never go back or recommend.

    I normally don't write reviews but felt I had to this time so Sage will fix their problems for the future. Had enjoyed Sage several times in the past but no longer after a failed attempt to have dinner prior to the James Taylor concert ... a dinner we never had. Although our table of 6 were seated 2.5 hours before concert, told our server about our time limitation, and ordered everything (drinks, appetizers and entrees) at once, only our drinks (45 mins later) and 1/2 our appetizers (90 mins later) ever arrived- forget the entrees. Talked several times to the server, asked 3 times to speak with the manager but to no avail. Tipped the server (assuming it wasn't her fault) and walked out. Come on Sage, you can do better than this!

    This was our Friday date night. I had the seafood broil and my wife had the petite filet. She is not a fish fan so when her broccoli showed up tasting like fish that was not cool. The broil was quite good but mainly due to the cream sauce. Huge fan of the risotto. Biggest disappointment - the hour long wait that we had to endure to eat - without even a hint of an apology from the server. This tells me that waiting is the norm. The food is good but NOT WORTH AN HOUR TO WAIT FOR. Our sever however (Tracy) was fantastic and very polite. Nice ambiance but I won't return. Not for the price we paid for food.

    We are regulars at the Northpoint Diner owned by the same group. We have wanted to a try Sage for a couple of years now. We reserve 5 star ratings for over the top experiences, but Sage is a solid 4 plus in all areas. We had limited time, so skipped starters and dessert. Not a problem, since the food was very good with nice sized portions like we are served at the Diner. Service and decor are nice. It was very convenient to our concert at the Verizon Amphitheater. We will return again on a concert night.

    There was a gigantic rip in the leather booth where we were seated. This is inexcusable. The server graciously agree to relocate our party of 4 but we reluctantly declined since it was a special celebration and we were enjoying appetizers. Since it only impacted me and my special occasion dress. However, it was annoying.

    We arrived to a changed special menu for Mother's Day. They took off the low priced items ie. the burger or meatloaf and increased all prices by $3-$5 for the same items. The old menu was behind the special mothers day menu. I have teens who only like the burger. I server was rude and was hard looking. Nothing you would expect for $40 a per dinner. We will never be back.
