    This restaurant is very nice inside. The food is varied and very good. They offer many options as a side dish. The salmon BLT, and soup of the day were outstanding. The waiter was friendly but in a big hurry to finish with us even though we were not in a rush at all.

    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.

    Husband and I went to celebrate a special event. We were seated at a table instead of booth, service was good but very slow. When good came my veggies were cold and seemed over cooked. Brought a replacement that was not not really any hotter. Would rather come for drink and appetizer.

    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.

    Sage was a HUGE disappointment. They were completely unprepared for the day. Very unprofessional. Brunch menu was uninspired and boring. No mimosas? No butter or jelly for biscuits. Staff was confused and unprepared. It felt like we were eating at a restaurant that was open on their first night. Amateurs. I should have taken heed when I got an email the day before that the menu had changed.

    The lighting was so low numerous guests were using cell phones to read menus. Sound system went nuts with high pitched noise for a few minutes. Then violin music began at a very loud level. Asked several times for it to be lowered. Food was excellent. Service was a little slow to start but improved. Wait staff got the order wrong (they don't write anything down) but corrected it quickly.

    Chef's special that night was iron steak which was surprisingly tender. I' glad I tried it but would probably order a filet next time. Appetizers are always a favorite and we have made a meal of them before. The scallops were perfectly cooked and a nice complement to the meal. Try everything!

    We came to ATL to get away for the weekend and have some awesome food adventures. Sage did not disappoint with that tall order! Ralph, our sever was fantastic! He had a great wine recommendation and was very knowledgeable about the menu. Our meals were cooked perfectly and everything was delicious. The only regret I have is that we both ordered salads before our meal and they were so large that I was full before our entrées arrived. Ralph suggested the dessert special, raspberry cheesecake. I'm not a cheesecake fan but my husband is, so we got a piece to go. It smelled so amazing that I tried a bite and proceeded to eat the whole thing! This restaurant is worth the 4 hour drive just to eat there again!

    I have eaten at this location numerous times. The food is great, creative and presented very well. There were four of us, we dine out every week together and all decided this was the worst experience based on service we have had in seven years. The waiter was so un attentive that we kept asking others for everything wee needed! I spend a lot of hard earned money to enjoy evenings out with my wife and friends. This particular event was a total waste of good money. I will never return to any place owned by this group. The best food in the world served poorly is bad food. This waiter needed training,

    This is my second visit to Sage and I am still underwhelmed. The service was slow despite the restaurant being half empty. The biggest complaint I have is that our drink glasses (water, tea, coke) were always empty. That really takes away from the enjoyment of a meal for me. The food was fine but not exceptional.
