Sage - A Plant Based Bistro
What Insiders Are Saying
Some of the best meatless food in the city.
Great vegan selections and gluten free options. We sent back the mac -) Everything else was great... especially the vegan, gluten free brownie sunday!
Food was worth every penny.
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.
A great brunch location! We dined on the patio. Our experience was enhanced by the incredible service and consistently good vegan and gluten free options.
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.
Really great vegan food at a restaurant with a chameleon-like atmosphere. It’s a chill coffee bistro and also a nice wine & dinner restaurant all at the same time somehow
Great way to celebrate birthday
Mickie our server was really amazing!!! The food was yummy too!
booths inside are too small for four people. great food
Bowls were well seasoned with a nice mix of greens, grains, and toppings. Waiter exceedingly helpful.
I love, love, love, this restaurant.
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.
Amazing as always. Love this place. If it was closer to home we’d be here every week.
Excellent food with a great atmosphere. Easily recommendable. Will be coming back again soon.
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!!!
Love the cauliflower buffalo wings. Love this vegan gastro pub, everything is delish!!!
Great food but awful customer service
Loved the many options!
Food was great!
Christina was friendly and a great energy!
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???
Food was great, ambiance was great, service was lacking. I think they just needed some more staff working the night we were there.
I'm still dreaming about the Cauliflower Steak and broccoli. It was outstanding. Thank you!
Our waiter was unprofessional and seemed to barely care. The food was too strong in umami flavor .
Very diverse menu in the sense that even meat eaters can enjoy the vegan options such as the Cauliflower wings to their Coconut Calamari.
I love this place. Every time I go I am reminded of what a great lunch/brunch place this is. It was a great place for Valentine's day as they had roses for everyone. Their detail to attention and customer service is key.
Amazing vegan restaurant and lively ambiance.
Nice alternative, I’m not vegan however I enjoyed my meal and will be back.
The food is always extremely fresh and delicious; can't go wrong!
One of my favorite restaurants! Love Sage
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.
The food is DELICIOUS! Our only problem was that we had a reservation and they did not have a table prepared for us and part of our order was not initially brought to the table. But the servers were wonderful and we loved everything we ordered.
A favorite Vegan restaurant in LA! A must for amazing vegan food.
Amazing food, serivce was okay, noise level was deafening. So difficult hearing my friend across the table. Why are all restaurants designed like this?!
I love this restaurant. The food is great. The drinks are wonderful.
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. :-)
Loved it, service is quite slow, but food was yummy and can’t wait to go back.
This was my first time dining at Sage, and the food was delicious. I had the Greek salad with quinoa, buffalo cauliflower and ginger tea. The most memorable part of my experience was our server, Mickie A. She was attentive, knowledgeable and very patient.
