The outdoor patio is absolutely charming. I'd go back just for the patio. It seemed as if every patron was accompanied by a dog. Very friendly atmosphere. The food...not so much. I erred in letting my friend order for us. The menu is large and unusual & I preferred to spend the time chatting rather than reading. My bad. We had (I think it was) coconut calamari which certainly sounded interesting. I only tasted fry, no coconut. Then we had a pizza. I don't recall what was supposed to top it because I couldn't find any discernible flavor. Even the crust was boring, and I adore crust. Totally tasteless. So I would go back because of the patio and I would just be more invested in my order.

I made a reservation in advance, but the table they gave to me and my husband was crammed next to two other couples, with a shared bench, and every time they moved it moved the bench. Also the tables were to high for the chairs, I felt like I was hunched over the table. My soul bowl was bland and the kale was sandy, like it hadn't been properly washed. My husbands Jack Fruit Tuna sandwich was delicious. The overall ambience of the place was magical, but loud. The peach cobbler was the best part, we took that to go and enjoyed it at home.

And eat there a couple times a month. I just wish they would improve their service. It is always so sporadic, and you never know who, when, of if your server will return.

Greeted by noise level that made talking impossible, my friend & I went outside despite waiters' saying the patio was closed. We simply waited till out food arrived & 'waitressed it outside ourselves. The selection Bollybowl was unusual, but I wouldn't order it again, and I felt it was overpriced. All in all we made it a pleasant experience ourselves, not with much help from he staff or menu. I wouldn't go there again nor recommend it to a friend.

I just got home from dining at Sage when I got your nasty gram about not showing up. We did and we let them know that we made the reservation through open table. Don’t know whether the problem is with you or them but I really don’t like getting scolded for something I didn’t do! It really sours me on you both!!!

Maybe it was an off night. Maybe it was because it’s been raining so much everyone wanted to eat out. 3 of us were in the corner booth. The place was packed. The noise level was terrible. The music was unbelievably loud and with all the noise we couldn’t even talk. The fries came to the table ice cold. The waiter bought another hot order but by this time we were pretty much done with dinner. We will go back but maybe when they’re so busy the music should be low or off. Am I now sounding like my parents???

The vegan menu is outstanding. We had calamari and the texture mimicked real calamari and the sauces quite complementary. I've eaten here several times, as its in the neighborhood, and am never disappointed. The cocktails and beer offerings are great.

We ordered off the Dine LA menu.
My friend wanted lasagna, but they had run out and it was not available.
I ordered the only GF entree that was available. It was pasta that lacked flavor and sauce. The manager said it was not made properly, and they could remake it or delete it from the bill. I chose the latter, since we had already been there for 1 1/2 hours.

Sage has the best vegan food in LA! Everything is so flavorful and filling - we ordered only 3 plates for 2 people and left almost uncomfortably full but 100% satisfied! Their dessert is to die for. Would definitely come back.

We are vegetarians, and usually good vegetarian food is hard to find outside Indian restaurants, and some Italian, Middle Eastern and Thai places. Sage is an excellent American restaurant with delicious vegetarian and vegan options. The ambiance was excellent, the service impeccable and the food was fantastic.

It is not inexpensive, but for a nice meal the price is reasonable. We took our dog along since we were traveling with him. They accommodated us in the patio seating and it was very comfortable with a patio heater making the LA January cold even milder. :-)

Excellent choice.
