  • Wild Sage - not as good as we hoped
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/24/2014
    While the quality of the food was good, the service was a negative. Our waiter was pretentious and very loud. It felt like he was talking to the small restaurant and not to our table of two!! Secondly my entrée was served cold and had to be returned. For a restaurant of 7 tables with high prices this is inexcusable - and to top it off my after dinner cappuccino was only lukewarm. The wine list was good but expensive. With extra attention to the service this would have been a very positive experience as the quality of the food was high, but alas!!!!!!

    Wild Sage continues to be one of the very best restaurants in Jackson. Intimate ambiance, great kitchen, superb service. Last night the "starters" were the stars: speck-wrapped asparagus, leek & bacon soup, and the crab cake appetizer. There are probably a couple more 4-diamond worthy eateries in the Hole, but the Wild Sage is already there. Consistently top drawer.

    Nice atmosphere, but the food quality is not inline with the price. The presentation was wonderful, but that's about where it ends. Tough steak, bland fish, etc. It would have been a fine meal, but at $450 for a family of 4, I expect better, and in 20 years of worldwide culinary exploration, I have had far better for much less. It feels like it's playing to a captive audience, given it's proximity to the Rusty Parrot (a premium hotel in Jackson). Try a little harder, guys.

    The Wild Sage is a very fine restaurant. We were pleased with all aspects of the place. We could not have asked for better food and service. And, the chef freely parted with some of his recipes! If you want a treat, go to the Wild Sage. But please make a reservation.

    I had the much praised pork ribs; they were unexpectedly very spicy and quite tough. I had to request a steak knife and it didn't help much. My wife had the halibut which was nice but not worth the price . Service was good but pretentious . Wild Sage has a higher opinion of itself than deserved

    This restaurant is as good as any in any market. Extraordinarily comfortable setting, imaginative, unique and simply delicious food. I've dined all over the U.S. and much of the world, and I'm at that happy stage where I don't need to impress anyone with food snobbery. I know what I like, and I like this.............. a lot. Serious food with no apologies at any level. Five stars is about 3 too few.

    For my father's birthday, we wanted to find something special. As we happened to spend the day in Jackson, we found this restaurant on Tripadvisor and were in for a real treat. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic, but highly professional and the food was great. All dishes were interesting and well executed. The restaurant is fairly small, giving it an intimate atmosphere. If I'm ever in Jackson again, I'll go back to this restaurant!

    At first site the intimate dining room looked almost unnervingly posh and I was preparing for the grand Service à la russe, down to dishes under cloches; but just a few words with the excellent server put us at ease. Bravo to the two fellows who created the wine selection; some wines of notable pedigree along with wines that just make sense for the food! The kitchen is in plain site but you never hear a peep; the dishes that exit are technically sound and gorgeously plated. My wife had the aged bison rib-eye, full of flavor, perfect temp, but as game is known to be, she would have liked it a little more tender. I had the stuffed quail, delicately tiny & squab-like, with herb sausage and garnished with a few tastes of the local environs.

    Food was great as usual but the single wait staff was overwhelmed by the 13 people seated at one time. Two tables of two had 5 to 10 minute waits just to place an order and were visibly annoyed. This is the second time in the last 6 months we've had a poor service experience. You would expect a restaurant of this quality to have a host or bus person to assure that at least water, bread and table clean up was timely. To top it off the server failed to box our leftovers as requested so a nice lunch portion of lamb shank was lost. As a local I won't be going back for some time, lot's of choices with great food and great service at other restaurants.

    Since this is a ranking on the restaurant, I have marked the appropriate stars and will keep my comment on the other patrons short. There was a rude couple who was not too pleased that we sang happy birthday to my sister, and a lovey guest whom wondered into the restaurant in his bathrobe, which needless to say was not tied tight enough. I know restaurants can hardly take responsibility for other dinners but thought is was noticeable enough to mention. As for service Jason was wonderful, very accommodating and just all around a great server. The food was quite good and the ambiance was just perfect. I can't wait to go back for a romantic evening. Thank you again Jason for helping make the evening very special.

    There were 2 reviews when we booked an anniversary dinner for 4: one plus and one minus. The plus review was correct, but too reserved. The food was outstanding, the service friendly and efficient. The wine list was extraordinary. We've been on vacation in the northwest for a week, and this was the best meal by far, greatly enhanced by the open kitchen design, allowing us to see the chefs at work. Of course we four are meat-eating foodies, so if you're like us be sure not to miss Wild Sage.

    The decor is charming and comfortable but my party of six were one of the only tables in the restaurant and the service was very slow. Our server was not warm and even though we had two birthdays at the table (and there was a note on the table as such) she did not wish either one a happy birthday. There were no vegetarian options for mains and the server brought an amuse bouche that the vegetarian could not eat and simply told her to give it to someone else. She watched the others eat with no substitute. The dessert list was boring so we left to eat dessert at another restaurant down the street. Wild Sage had a great wine list. However, the small details were missed which made the good food a forgettable experience.

    We were staying at the Rusty Parrot, so we had two breakfasts here as well as a birthday dinner for my husband. Breakfast is a different scene. It's unfortunate that we chose the same time to eat as a family from Australia with two very young children. The children literally crawled all over the table. They fortunately had enough sense not to bring their children to dinner there; it would have totally ruined it for us, The food is expensive but worth it, the service is outstanding and friendly, it's very quiet with only a few tables in the whole place.

    The Wild Sage is by far the best overall dining experience in Jackson. I have been visiting Jackson for 28 years. We recently purchased a home in Jackson so have had ample opportunity to visit most of the restaurants. The Wild Sage is the real deal. Great food, expertly prepared right in front of you. The atmosphere is quiet and romantic complemented with a suburb wine selection. They also do an outstanding breakfast. The best place to dine in Jackson.

    Dined on 2/9/2014
    Wild Sage proved to be one of the best places in Jackson, WY! Upon entering the restaurant, diners will take note of the beautiful decor that embraces a very rustic but warm feel. A fireplace in the middle of the room and dark redwoods bring an Old West comfort. The service is fantastic as the server immediately greets you and stays attentive, but not over bearing, throughout the whole meal. The highlight to the whole experience is the incredible food they produce. The beet salad was incredibly fresh and tasty, the Tomato Soup was flavorful and savory and the main courses are to die for! The trout was very fresh and tender, falling off the bone before you get near it with a fork and the Lamb Shank was the best ever!

    We heard about this restaurant from a local and we are so glad we did. Located in a hotel not too far from the center of town is this tiny and beautiful romantic restaurant. A rock fireplace with a roaring fire is the focal point of the room. There is an open kitchen on the other side of the room where you can watch the chef prepare your fabulous meal. The food is AMAZING (Jackson Hole prices) and the service is friendly and professional. We loved this place. Do yourself a favor and GO! You will not be disappointed.
