What Insiders Are Saying
Some of the best meatless food in the city.
I needed to bring the time of the reservation forward by 30 minutes but I couldn’t see a way to do it from your booking platform so I called & left a message. Someone called back & left a voicemail acknowledging receipt of my message, without confirming the requested change, & asked me to call again. I called several times & it went straight to voicemail each time.
We were celebrating my graduation, with family & friends who had flown in specifically for the event, & so we all needed to know what time to arrive at Sage. It was already a very stressful time for me, as I finished everything up before the commencement ceremony the same morning. Sage’s lack of communication just added to the anxiety.
We arrived at the restaurant not knowing for certain if my request had been accommodated.
We were seated without any problems when we showed up.
There were 9 of us so we spent a small fortune. Most of the food was over seasoned, had a strange aftertaste, my husband was very gracious, & relieved the drinks hadn’t spilled on clothing or bags, but the waiter barely managed to say sorry.
Such a disappointment. We will definitely not be back.
It’s better to go to a restaurant that’s not vegan or gluten free, but which has these options on the menu. Especially when there are carnivores in the party.
If I could cook like this, I might go vegan. My favorites are quinoa cakes and fried artichokes. The bowls are tasty and hearty. And treat yourself to salted chocolate caramel cheesecake. You won’t be disappointed;-)
I am so thankful for Sage! It has been very challenging to find a vegan restaurant with gluten free options that I would want to go to for a dress up or casual date. Sage is also very accommodating for groups. I am never disappointed with the food, atmosphere or service. My husband and I came the first time and met some friends and the second time celebrated our anniversary. We drive down from the SF Valley and it is absolutely worth the trip!
Great place close to the airport for me and my girlfriend to grab brunch before flying out. Love the location, the food, and the service. It’s a little pricey but well worth it.
Best vegan food around. Terrific.
I can't recall our servers name, maybe Matthew? I was tall thin, wide eyes and beautiful teeth. I commend him on his beautiful teeth, He said he had braces twice. Anyway, he was very attentive, gave us suggestions based on what we liked. He knew the menu well. We didn't wait for anything.
It was early in the day, the restaurant was beautiful and quiet. Our food beautiful for photos, more importantly, delicious, hearty and healthy.
Love this place! We've eaten here for special occasions and casual evenings out. This time, my husband & I arrived a little before our reservation, but they were able to seat us right away and we had a cozy indoor table for two by a window. We've enjoyed their pizza, their tacos, their entrees and salads - doesn't seem to matter what we've ordered - the food has been delicious. Also, the atmosphere of the place is so charming you can easily forget you're in a shopping center. It's a popular place, so if you're going on a weekend, I'd recommend making reservations.
Ravioli was incredible, as were the greens underneath them, meatloaf was too mushy, mashed potatoes were incredible, buffalo cauliflower was perfectly cooked, overall experience was great!
As always, Sage fed us well and we went home happy!
I have always been delighted with the great flavors and textures of my meals at Sage Bistro. Always fun to take 2 or 3 others and share everything! This time we had the Avocado Jackfruit appetizer, Miso Bowl and Cauliflower Buffalo Salad. Every bite was delicious from start to finish.
Had a lovely time eating out on the patio. The Cauliflower Picatta could have used a bit more sauce but was tasty and the Butternut squash Ravioli was a real treat. Certainly not a "small" dish as the waiter indicated.
I don't know if the staff is encouraged to upsell on the drinks. I don't drink and tend to get turned off when servers push in that way. (our person "left the drink menu in case we changed our mind"
A nice option for vegans.
Most things were fine, but no one could understand why we got about 2 sips of wine poured into a cup and it costs 14 dollars. Never getting wine there again but the place is great and the atmosphere feels good. Great options. A bit pricy for my fav dish ( cauliflower wings) as there are a few other spots that have them for 8-10$ for similar portion sizes. Still will come back though. Thanks for the birthday experince. :)
Love this place for brunch. The food and service is always on point. We love the chilaquiles and the acai bowl. This place can get hectic for dinner, but I'd highly recommend it during the day.
The food is so flavorful! It's what keeps us coming back again and again. The staff has always been very friendly.
Wonderful food, great service... gluten free pizza!
Sage is an amazing restaurant that never ceases to please. You dont have to be Vegan to enjoy it. I eat there about 2x a month, and love it.
Pleasant neighborhood place. Parking is a pain. Their food won't convince you to be a vegan. Just okay. All sounds better than it is.
amazing food, nice staff and other diners. friendly place !
Food was good. Especially liked the buffalo cauliflower. Ravioli was good, but not great.
We live this place for our vegan friends and it’s amazing menu. I had the veggie plantains black bean burrito which is deliciously sweet and wholesome and the avocado adds umami.
Slow service. Mediocre food this time.
Enjoyed really excellent and creative vegan food! Thank you for providing great for the LA vegan community
Brought family to celebrate my son's birthday and everybody had a GREAT time. Even those who aren't vegetarian or vegan enjoyed the food and would return. Our server, David, waa friendly, upbeat and made sure everything was to our liking.
My first time here. Really enjoyed the many healthy food choices, the respect for the environment, and great service. Waiter was enthusiastic and personable. He worked hard and was busy but able to get a hold of. Food was tasty!
We always try to eat at Sage when we visit the Culver City area. Good food, creative and delicious entrees. Always enjoy it!
Terrible food, dry, awful seasoning, silly combos, terrible hard brownie for desert, dirty tables
A very nice place & the food was great!! I highly recommend for small or larger (10 people) groups. The outside area is charming.
My only wish is that they offered more grain-free options.
Very good vegan pizza! Had a good service. Waters always filled. Ice cream, not my fav.
I eat there several times a month. So am obviously a fan. I take a lot of carnivores there, and to a person, everyone loves it.
Our Server was amazing. She was friendly, knowledgeable and patient. Also I love having so many veggie options.
Unfortunately it seems the quality of food and service at Sage has been slowly decreasing over the past 3 years or so. We are always excited to go based on our earlier experiences, but once we're there, the service is hit or miss and the food is only so-so. With all the new vegan options popping up around LA (plus the bad "parking lot patio" atmosphere of being on a busy street), Sage will really need to up it's game to stay relevant.
Brought an Australian meat eater who enjoyed the menu very much.
Chose this restaurant because my daughter is vegetarian. It was so nice for her to be able to go somewhere that she could have options. It's a pretty restaurant and the service is fantastic. We sat in a booth which could have been roomier. We will definitely be back.
Nachos, butternut squash ravioli Food: Absolute euphoria, flavorful, tasty, delicious, delightful, delectable Service: friendly, warm, welcoming
This was a nice discovery. I'd been wanting to check out Sage for a while and finally got the chance. I was very pleased with the menu selections, the casual ambiance, and the friendly staff. We'll be back again :)
Sage is awesome. i have taken at least 10 different people there, and to a person they love. it - carnivores and vegetarians/vegans. i go every couple weeks and absolutely love it. It is casual, but the food is anything but. Absolutely awesome.
Amazing ambience outside among the trees and outstanding menu! I am gluten free so this place was a dream!
Drinks were well made, server had been there over 10 years and was amazing. Food did not disappoint!
