My husband and I lOVE this place. I think by now we have tried almost everything on the menu and have not been dissapointed once. The owner and staff are great. But I must admit, the lobster pot pie is still my favorite!! All homemade from scratch comfort food. 💘

I believe this is one of the nicer restaurants in the Space Coast area. I usually go there for a special occasion or a trade up meal. We like the idea that everything is made to order. Sarah is a great hostess. Her son prepares wonderful meals. They are co-owners and make a great team.
Peter has been our waiter the last two times we have eaten at Sage. We rate him and the entire staff as outstanding.

This was our second visit to Sage Bistro having enjoyed it so much on the first trip. We shared the Sesame Tuna appetizer and it was beyond delicious. My husband had the Lobster Pot Pie and enjoyed it immensely. I had the Pesto Cream Shrimp and it was delectable. We shared an exquisite Apple Cobbler served with homemade vanilla ice cream and it was outstanding. We highly recommend Sage Bistro and intend to return on a regular basis.

Owner was lovely, she greeted us upon arrival and showed us to our table. Food was very good and they had a great “buy one tapas and one glass of wine, get an additional glass of wine for free”.

I give the restaurant only 3 stars for ambience because, #1 they have no round tables which with a group of five or more makes it difficult to include everyone in conversations and #2 no tablecloths. I feel for the price you are paying, they ought to have tablecloths.

We were greeted and sat by the owner, who was extremely friendly. She took our drink order. Wine selection was good, espresso martini was terrible. Wait staff seemed disorganized, but we had been warned when coming in that a waitperson had called out. None the less, the restaurant did not seem so busy that the waitstaff there could not handle it
We started with the duck spring rolls. The filling was very good but I would describe the rolls more as a fried egg roll not light like a spring roll should be.
For a main entree, I enjoyed mahi. It was prepared perfectly. My husband ordered the baked stuffed chicken. The chicken was very dry and he did not like the sauce.

Overall, our dinner experience was fair. Not a great place, not a terrible place

Peter was our server. He was excellent. Informative but not pushy. Friendly but not intrusive. Food was very good. Soup tasty but somewhat spicy. Chicken was very good and recommended. Veal was very good and required a sauce which we ordered. Main objection was the noise. A couple of noisy tables detracted from what would have been a nice relaxing dinner. Would recommend.

This was the first time a friend and I went. The hostess was lovely and helpful, it was not noisy. And one of the best Escargot I’ve ever had. I liked that there was space between each item we ate. Loved the salad dressing and the lobster pot pie was beautiful and yummy. Looking forward to trying something else on the menu!

First time there and will definitely be back next time we're in the area. Everything was perfect, from the warm welcome and menu description upon being seated to the server's friendliness and efficiency. The food is all made to scratch and the fresh fettuccine was incredible. All of us thoroughly enjoyed the entire evening. Strongly recommend!!!

Very nice dinner. Wine list was a good mix of varietals and reasonably priced. The fresh catch Mahi came well presented with rice and French beans on Jasmine fried rice. Filet was cooked medium and was very tender and mildly seasoned. I hope this restaurant thrives since there are no really good wine and fine food restaurants of this value or quality in Brevard county. I hope the locals realize this small gem and frequent this restaurant. We will return next time we make it back to the area and look forward to the opportunity to see how they are doing with new dishes and quality and consistency.

As always, the food at Sage was superlative.
The hostess was welcoming and warm as in the past and our server, Robin, was friendly and excellent with the order taking and food delivery.
Unfortunately however, I had completed the online reservation form indicating our visit was for my wife’s birthday and requested a cake and candle and reiterated this to Robin when she asked if this was a special occasion when taking our order.
We never received any cake and to ask for it after the meal would have been a bit awkward.p

Took my wife and daughter for Mother's day. Food was really delicious. Duck spring rolls, mushroom soup, and garden salads, pork chops, rack of lamb and the fish were the dishes we ordered. Everything was very well prepared and very enjoyable.

Sage tries really, really hard- too hard, actually. They want to be a destination gourmet restaurant, but they are bedeviled by a menu that is too long, poor communication between waitstaff and kitchen and some flavor combinations that are sometimes terrific but other times miss the mark. Frankly, they should pare down the menu and perfect their remaining dishes. It's just too hit and miss.

Hits: cream of mushroom and chardonnay soup, scallop tapas, the home made dressings on the salads, apple crumble right out of the oven, escargot, baby osso buco spicy buffalo flavored appetizer, the braised cabbage and spetzel that came with the braised pork shank, rare tuna, a good Hendrick's gin and tonic (but the lime slice was too skimpy).

Misses: yellow cake served with raspberry butter cream served cold in a mason jar (the cake was dry and the butter cream was hard), lobster pot pie (no cream sauce but a thin bland tomato sauce, a sheet of puff pastry instead of home made pie crust), above mentioned pork shank (tender and liked the caraway seed flavor but tasted strongly of raw garlic which knocked out all the other flavors- why?!), chips and guacamole (chips were flour not corn and lacked salt/guac was bland- need more lime and had no heat).

There were more adventurous dishes (esp on the "mother's day menu") but they were pricy and I was nervous given the size of the menu and didn't try them. The server gushed about the dishes she liked, but the soup took over 45 min to arrive at our table. The hostess/manager came over and apologized and brought out the soup (which at that point we boxed for later). My dining partner sent back the Buffalo flavored baby osso buco because it was too hot for her. To their credit they took it off the bill (I liked it BTW).

I would go back and poke around the menu some more. The hits were true hits. The place has potential and I'm glad they are trying and willing to branch out. But the dishes need work.

Food was amazing. Dining room was noisy due to several boisterous patrons, and would benefit from some dividers or barriers to make the tables more private, but in spite of that, we will be back because the dishes were delicious. Nice full bar selection.

We went to Sage Bistro the evening before our cruise, and I cannot say enough good things about this place. The staff was incredibly attentive, they offered wonderful suggestions on wine, which we took their advice & were not disappointed! The food was incredible, a true farm to table meal, and the entree portions were very generous. I highly recommend this restaurant & i look forward to visiting again on our next trip down to Cape Canaveral!

There us plenty of room, with an open layout, so, bring the gang.

In a surprisingly empty restaurant on a Friday evening during Easter week we were, once again under-whelmed. A tapas selection of tuna carpaccio was excellent and a selection of "fresh local" clams were seriously over-cooked and chewy. My wife's "featured" salad of the day was heavily dressed with balsamic vinegar overpowering literally all of the ingredients. We have now tried Sage many times over the past 12-14 months and continue to be disappointed with the consistent inconsistencies. We've had great food. We've had real disappointments. And we don't know how to select accordingly.

Second time there and as good as the first time. Nice ambiance, friendly service, great food and excellent value. Especially like Tuesdays - Tapas Tuesdays - $10. Ordered from the wine list also. Good wines for a good value (bottles). Great find in the Cape/Cocoa Beach area.
