It is rare to find a place that has great vegan food and its own brewery. The Brazilian Burrito was excellent and adding the mole is well worth it. I also enjoyed their Hazy IPA. The deck for outdoor dining overlooks a plaza surrounded by buildings, so you are not getting exhaust fumes from cars passing by while you are eating. The prices may seem a bit high, but you are eating in a prime location and the portions are very generous. I'll definitely eat there again when I am visiting Pasadena.

The food was terrible.. appetizer came out at the same time as our meal. Our waitress was lovely and quite good. It was very disappointing as I had an out of town guest and brought him here because I love the food so much (usually go to the Culver City location), but this dining experience was not good.

Service was very slow. Our order was served almost close to one hour. Ended up paying good amount of parking fee.
Server was pleasant.

A very disappointing meal. Fired ravioli on top of kale and drenched in some sort of sauce. The other dish was soggy breaded eggplant on linguine. How this is the best plant based restaurant in LA is beyond me.

The vibe was nice, DJ outside, service was excellent. The dish I had was good but a bit too over seasoned and garlicky for my taste.

The food is very good. I like the drinks because there are no added sugar so it’s healthy. My daughter and I had breakfast bowl and they were filling. My son and son in law had their individual pizza and each didn’t finish. The crusts were thick but the Buffalo cauliflower was perfectly battered and fried. I think one pizza order to share is good enough. My other daughter liked her burrito wrap. The pretzel was doughy. But the polenta strips were good. Service was fine. And the outside patio was delightful for brunch. Overall was an enjoyable experience but I think there should be some vegetarian choices of Vietnamese or Thai based for added flavor. Mexican style vegetarian and vegetarian pizzas are quite heavy for our family. But we will be back.

Well, I invited my brother and his wife for the first time and we got seated right away! Ordered drinks and appetizers which was amazing! The table for 4 was very small and uncomfortable. Entrees came outright away. We did not get a chance to enjoy appetizers unfortunately. There was no room to put 4 entrees on the small square table so we had to give our plates to the server. I think the flavors were a bit overpowering and I don’t think my guest enjoyed it. I don’t think I will be going there anytime soon. I am tasting it the next day. Ambiance was very nice. A bit overpriced in my opinion.

Short time Everything is always delicious and wonderful service it is quite a bit loud inside but I guess that's because it's a smaller area for area my family prefers to sit inside although the outside seating is fabulous

As always the food was excellent. The manager never misses a beat. He has eagle eyes and see’s everything. The only thing this place needs is better greet and more gracious servers. Tru Foods Kitchen is the gold standard on customer service. They have great food too, but side by side maybe go th here and see from the moment you walk in to the moment you leave it’s like a spa experience with the smiles and the joviality. Sage Bistro seems like it hires a younger less experienced type person that struggles with giving AMAZING customer service. I am a frequent diner. I visit restaurants more than 3 times a week.

We went to Sage to celebrate two friend's birthdays. Our server was very accommodating and checked to see if food was gluten free and soy free. We ordered from the Happy Hour menu. The food was very good!

We went on a Saturday afternoon and unfortunately sat next two a family with two crying children. I love children so this is not their fault but it is just to explain why I could not rate higher that it was quiet. Our experience was still delightful and the children were adorable. I think they were hungry and therefore irritable. But who wouldn't be :-)
