    What an amazing experience! I was skeptical due to the prices, but it was worth every penny. They made every effort to ensure that my husband and I enjoyed our birthday dinner to the fullest. The food and service was fantastic and I highly recommend the braised rabbit and buffalo tenderloin.

    A great and thoroughly delightful experience. Superb service(thank you Jeremy,Leilani, and Asia) with each course memorable, especially the unique cheese presentation. The wine pairings are highly recommended as individual selections for so many unusual (and delicious) flavors would have been impossible for me and I would have missed out on the flavor augmentation that helped make this a memorable meal. I would definitely order the escargot, lobster, and buffalo tenderloin again. The explosively-flavored chocolate and coconut cream with pear ice was to die for. There was nothing served that didn't give me goosebumps as I experienced these flavors. Grazie, Chef Drew. As to price, this was a great value for a meal that I shall remember for years. See you soon.

    We were told to expect an "experience" and that was the perfect description. Everything was top notch from the moment we arrived. It was my wife's birthday and I can't imagine a more enjoyable evening. The friendliness, the service, the food and drink, everything was exceptional. No wonder this restaurant is so highly rated. We will definitely be back.

    Wonderful place to experiment with new flavors and unusual foods. My favorite entrée is buffalo tenderloin. Even the more common foods are prepared in a manner that enhances their flavor. Very leisurely dining ensures that one can enjoy each course without feeling stuffed. Be sure to save room for the unique, delicious desserts.

    When can I go back? This was one of the top 3 meals of my life. Incredible food, service, history lesson, art presentation, and entertainment pieces of the meal added up to be so much more than the sum of its parts. The creativity of the cheese course and cactus dessert had my tongue dancing and brain ecstatic with all the textures, flavors, and scents. Take the waitstaff's recommendations - the buffalo tenderloin, pork belly / cheek, and escargot / mushrooms with native bread were my favorite bites and nearly brought tears to my eyes, but everything truly shined. I have a huge new appreciation for native american food and hope that restaurants around the country incorporate the ingredients and techniques into their menus for a long time to come.

    We came here to celebrate. Jeremy and his team were awesome. The food was amazing. We started with the escargot and the soup…both were incredible. If I could get a full bowl of the escargot, I would do it. We then both got the pork belly. The combination of the meat and sauces was delightful. Both the main dishes (halibut and buffalo) were outstanding. The meat was incredibly tender and the sauce on the halibut was most yum. The cheese course was delectable. Desserts were both wonderful. The cocktails were very good and I recommend The Sage. Overall, pricey and satisfying. It is worth the experience.
