Arrived at restaurant to be told they did not have our reservation and that they had closed their opentable account months ago. They did offer to seat us, however only had 3 entrees available. We declined and left. Not impressed at all.

Glad we made reservations as the place was packed. My fourth visit over five years and the food remains terrific. Best eatery in either Inyo or Mono counties. If you are in Bishop at dinner time this is the place.

We always stay in Bishop on our trips north. The Creekside Inn, Sage & Shatt’s are our must go to places. The front staff are really nice and friendly which is welcome relief from the artificial welcomes of the big cities. For some reason our food was not as good as before. We will continue to make it our go to place. I’m sure next time will be better.

A couple blocks off the beaten path but if you haven’t tried Sage for dinner on your way through Bishop then you’ve missed the finest secret for 200 miles in any direction.
The food is prepared impeccably and the service matches perfectly.
Don’t miss the opportunity!!

As always, Sage was perfect. We took our son, who is a foodie that has worked with great chefs.
He appreciated everything, from the bread basket to the incredible desserts. One disappointment was that the salmon cakes (appetizers) were not available. We drove from our home in RIdgecrest just for a meal. The service is exccellent, the wine choices delicious.

We were a party of 6. We all enjoyed our dinners. We selected, duck, salmon, lamb shank and the steak and shrimp special.everyone was impressed with the flavor of the meal. Nice presentation, the plate size is smaller but
you get a good portion of food. It is. It is a jewel for Bishop residents.

Definitely one of the nicest, if not the nicest, places we've dined at in the area. Server was super-friendly and unpretentious, and the vegetarian dishes we ate were tasty. It can be challenging to make a plate of grilled vegetables delicious and satisfying, and our dish was just that. Mushroom appetizer was also very good. We were very impressed with the marshmallow strawberry dessert! A definite must-try. We always come here for dinner whenever we are in the area, and we highly recommend it.

Food is absolutely AMAZING, my wife and I were passing through town for night and found Sage on yelp. Great staff, the owner/chef is a great guy and he is truly a master of exquisite cousine. We are from San Diego where we find amazing food, Sage ranks up there with the best we have ever had....anywhere! A must go to spot!

Took my Fiance here for a date on 2/17/18. I had the braised lamb and she had the 8oz. steak. Both were absolutely fantastic! I've lived in Bishop my whole life and this is by far the best food in town!! Definitely worth the money! Great wine too.

Our Carmelized onion soup was OUTSTANDING!!! Bread was wonderful. . Vegetables cooked to perfection ( al dente ). . . & Filet Mignon delicious ~ my only very small complaint was that when I ordered the steak Med, it was so thick that it was too rare for me. But of course you took it back & re-cooked it for me, & you even added more vegetables.
We love SAGE ~~~~~

We like Sage for better food, little nicer place when in Bishop. The dining room is so simple as the be bare, but functional. The service is good, but a little over stretched. There were two girls at a busy time waiting, running and busing all tables - so there were some slightly long waits at points, but not too bad -- the girls were going as fast as they could! the menu has a number of good selections, and the food is generally quite good.

Sage is wonderful food in a former bookstore? so the ambience is a bit plain, though nice paintings on the walls. Not really cozy, and can be a bit noisy - BUT - it's the best food in Bishop. Portions are on the small side, a good thing. Very inventive vegetable presentations, soup and salads very good. Menu not extensive, but what's there is different and delicious. Lovely experience.

Nice restaurant in Bishop. Have been there several times. Food is mostly excellent, though this time my salmon was overcooked, soup or salad comes with entrees. Nice vegetables on the plate. My husband had a delicious chicken breast with mushroom mustard cream sauce, really excellent. Soups are some of the best we have ever had in a restaurant. The service tends to be on the slow to very slow side, though the servers are friendly. Had significant wait even though we had reservations.
