    Was looking forward to checking out the rooftop- closed for a private event.. disappointing. Server Katie was fantastic.. unfortunately the food took forever and was just meh.. had the halibut.. seemed a very solid choice - underwhelming to say the least. For the prices I would expect much much better. Bright spot was the cocktails.. even if one round took so long Katie had to comp it ( much appreciated) In the future I would possibly come back and sit at the bar for drinks.. for the price I think there are better options in Sarasota.

    My impression of Sage SRQ was that of performance art. The service was impeccable; the renovation of the dining area was both contemporary and preserved; the atmosphere was elegant, but homey. They got so much right. The food, however, was not particularly memorable, even after the rapturous descriptions by our excellent server. The amuse bouche was a small sweet plum with white chocolate. My appetizer was a beet salad, which was, again, not particularly remarkable... even a little bland. The foie gras I chose instead of an entree was also just mediocre for the elegant price I paid. My dining companions were even less impressed than I. Oh, and my gin martini was room temperature.

    The meal started with cocktails which were well crafted and were interesting. The tandoori Caesar with shrimp surprised me. I was not sure what to expect but it was tasty and appropriately spiced and thoroughly enjoyable. The beet salad was fresh and exciting I tried the signature Thai bouillabaisse and it was tasty and had marvelous flavors. My wife had the fois gras and raved about it. So in summary it was a wonderful meal with interesting choices in a delightful atmosphere. And by the way our service was great. We will return to some more of Sages menu.

    The food was pretty but flavorless. The lamb Rogan Josh, which was supposed to be a curry, had no curry flavor at all. As a Brit, I know my curries. The lamb also seemed to be reheated from the night before. The vegan Wellington was just OK. Nothing had salt, spices, or any depth of flavor. We had been warned by many people that the food was bland and overpriced, but we wanted to try it for ourselves since everyone's taste is different. We should have listened on this one. We weren't impressed, wouldn't recommend it, and won't be back. It's a shame.

    We've been here in the past, and I've always enjoyed it. What makes the evening special is the personable wait staff. Everyone is friendly and, of course, polite, and extremely well informed about the menu and slight modifications that can be made. My favorite modification is they can make the Thai Bouillabaisse Vegan! And it is the best vegan dish in town. There I s usually another vegetarian option, currently a vegetarian, Wellington, really, really good), which I have tried and liked, but there is nothing like that vegan Thai bouillabaisse. We like to go when it's earlier, when it's not quite as loud.

    Sage is such a unique spot! The building is architecturally beautiful with so many interesting areas! It was raining so we didn’t get to the rooftop bar, but the bar on the main level is very cozy and has some of the best cocktails we’ve ever had! Be sure to try one of the smoked drinks! We sat on the mezzanine level which was comfortable and quiet. Our server, Ziggy, was fantastic! Very knowledgeable and descriptive. The food was spot on! We will definitely be back!
