Seated right away which was very nice. Host and server were very friendly. Food is pretty good, but not something extraordinary. Outdoor seating is very nice with string lights. Although California is fully reopened as of this week, the tables were closer than I would have liked. Very busy on a Thursday so definitely make a reservation!

The food was excellent, menu had a lot of variety and very original dishes. It’s pricy but not outrageous. The outside dining was really nice. We had the fried artichokes, potato flautas, eggplant farmesean and the Brazilian burrito finishing with the apple cobbler. Everything was super. The fried food was excellent because it was crispy but not oily. The only downside was when we we ready for the bill the server wouldn’t come over.

The food is outstanding, but the service was terrible - we were ignored for most of our visit, to the point that I started to wonder if we had offended our server somehow. It’s going to be a while before I’m willing to come back to dine in.

They gave us a private room for a party of eight. That was very nice of them the room was nice and secluded. However the food took a long time with the waitress acknowledged that there was a problem in the kitchen. To compensate they gave us 30% off the check which was very nice of them. I’ve been there several times and I really enjoy the food.

Great food and cocktails, fun atmosphere. Service was off but have dined at this location several times prior to the pandemic without issue so sure it's just the team getting back into the groove. Highly recommend.

Sage always has such delicious food! We've probably had half of their menu and have yet to be disappointed. The fried cauliflower "wings" keep bringing us back when we can't decide where to eat

Super fresh, yummy food. (Butternut squash and kale Greek salad). Sauv Blanc wine very good (server didn’t know name), not a big deal. She Gave us the wrong ice cream which was only a small bummer. Overall, the service was really pleasant and attentive.

I’ll definitely recommend and go back.

Delicious food - poor service.

They get to when they get to you. Apathetic servers, no sense of friendly customer service, say they will be right back ....never are and always forget ....

Echo park location is this way too - so it’s hard to blame staff ....seems like it’s poor management from above resting on the laurels of their tasty recipes

This was our first time actually eating inside the restaurant: one of the first things I noticed was how much better the food was freshly cooked than delivered--I'm really glad we gave Sage Bistro an in-person try! The service was casual, but fun and very friendly. In fact, that describes the entire experience: casual, friendly, comfortable. As always, we wanted to try several dishes, so we chose to share the nachos, lasagna, the sautéed greens, the hibiscus margaritas, and banana ice cream. First thing: the servings are very generous! The nachos could have benefited from more salsa, cashew cream, or something to bind it together a bit better. That said, it was delicious, especially the perfectly cooked black beans. The lasagna was incredibly flavorful and very light on the tomato sauce. The margaritas--be warned--are doubles and very light on the mixer. The sautéed greens were wonderful and cooked perfectly. And, of course, the ice cream was just right. I usually don't write this much, but I enjoyed the entire experience and really appreciated our servers--I feel badly that I never caught their names. We'll be back.

We arrived a bit before our reservation and were sat immediately which was nice. It took quite a while for our server to come to our table, and because we saw there was a happy hour going on, we decided to order 2 glasses of wine and a pizza from that menu, and a regular appetizer. Much to our dismay, and despite it being on the HH menu, the waitress told us that that specific pizza was excluded. That seemed really odd and annoying, being that the menu stated it, not us but despite that- we proceeded with the order because we came specifically for the buffalo cauli pizza. Once the wine was delivered, we didn't see our waitress again till the end. The red blend that we ordered was turned (very vinegary and bubbly). We had to ask a passing busser for assistance and he graciously corrected the situation. Overall, we were very underwhelmed by the poor service and the inability to honor their menu.

First visited with the Girl's for brunch and mimosas. The dishes were well portioned allowing us to share and enjoy a variety of dishes. Definitely recommend the Chia French Toast, Chilaquiles, Buffalo Cauliflower just to name a few. However this last visit was for Mother's Day. Took my teenagers and Fiancé who are anything but Vegan lovers. And they absolutely were surprised and raved about their food. For this special occasion they provided us a little gift, organic jam which was appreciated. I also liked that the restaurant had floral bouquets for purchase that were absolutely beautiful. Great brunch experience yet again!

Mothers Day Brunch. Food was good, I am not vegetarian but the rest of the family is, so please take my food rating with a grain of salt. Family says this is the best V food in the area. I think it just tasted all of the other vegetarian restaurants I have been dragged to. Buffalo sauce was the standout.

Service was excellent. No complaints.

Ambiance was nice. There decor make you feel comfortable and coupled with the service, we had a relaxing time.

Value is where I have issue for Sage. Certainly making vegetarian food appealing even for me gets my dollar. However, Old Town Pasadena is full of food choices of all kinds w/o the higher than average priced fare here.

Try for the novelty, or because family wants to go, but walk around the corner in Pasadena and you can find good-great food for better value.
