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.

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.

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.

Consistently very good ( but not amazing) vegan food. Get the Buffalo Cauliflower-yum!
A bit too loud for my taste and would have liked a booth ( reserved for parties over 2)
Overall I really like Sage and am glad no animals were harmed for my meal!

Went as a group Sunday after church for brunch, I'd eaten there before, but never for brunch. It was good, everything there is good, but I love the lunch and dinner menu the most. The Butternut Squash is my favorite dinner meal, I also has a pizza that was good too, but I can't remember which one. The buffalo cauliflower is good, get it fried crispy and it will be AMAZING.

This is my favorite spot to bring friends from out of town. I am a vegan so I find it difficult to bring family/friends to a location we can all enjoy. Everyone who I've ever brought here is PLEASANTLY SURPRISED with how good the food is. (even my meat eater male friends love this place)
Ambiance is also outstanding. The outdoor patio seating area is filled with overhanging trees and string lights.

PS
Their dessert menu is not something to pass up!!!

I’ve dined with Sage numerous of times. Unfortunately this visit was a little disappointing. First off It took awhile for our waiter to get to us. I had to ask the food runner to get someone, and got the floor lead. She placed our order and then relayed the message to whom was supposed to be our waitress. She then introduced herself. We ordered an appetizer which came out hot and delicious, highly recommend the coconut calamari. And then two entree’s which came quickly after. Sadly the dish I ordered was on the cold side, and which I have ordered many times before. Served hot but not this time and fell a bit short on quality as well. Didn’t seem to be that busy inside on a Friday night. I was close to sending it back but was extremely hungry and ate it anyways. The other entree came out just fine. Hope to have a better experience next time.

My son was in town visiting from Oahu and I thought we could share a meal & a new experience together.
I've heard so many good things about Sage and I've been wanting to go for awhile. DINEla was the perfect opportunity. We had both had the same - Avocado Jackfruit & BAHN Tacos. Both were very Yummy. Bummed that I was Too full to have any ice cream. I used to make my own raw plant based ice cream, a specialty that I used to cater on Maui. :) Thanks so much for being here, I will be back!
Gluten Free Pretzels! yes please!
