From the host to the server and bartender I’m just amazed how this place is in business. I’ve been to the other locations many times but the echo park location needs some service training.

Food was great, server could have had better menu knowledge, but considering it was the first night of Dine LA he gets a pass.

I had a reservation at 8pm on a Thursday for 5 adult male Co-workers and they said they had a table held for us. When they sat us, they sat us at a 4 top booth and expected us to squeeze 3 men on one side and 2 on the other. I asked if they could put us somewhere else with more room and they could not. I knew it would be busy, that is why I made a reservation the day before. Kind of disappointing.
The food was amazing. No complaints there.
Service was fine. I feel like our server was nervous because we had asked to be moved and the manager couldn’t accommodate us.
We made it work, however it was exactly the reason I made the reservation. I wanted it to be an easy hassle free semi casual business dinner and it def started rocky with everyone cramming into a small booth.
I have to add. We were all on the larger side of build, so it was extra awkward/annoying trying to cram into the booth.

I love sage in Culver City. The service was poor in echo park. The wrong items came to the table. The waitress was rude when I told her it was wrong. Very disappointing experience. The food got me sick. They had a problem that day with refrigeration and my whole family got sick.

The food was excellent! I have been a vegetarian for 41 years and it is so awesome to see places like Sage open and thrive! The only bad thing is, everything looks so good and I am not used to having so many choices that I order way to much food. The Crab cakes were bomb!

Went for holiday brunch. They were out of biscuits so that blew up two favorites. They were also out of GF Pilsner for my vegan sister in law. Bummer. Probably not going to be on our family meeting spot list.

I was so wonderfully surprised to be so beautifully accommodated by the extremely attentive and kind staff! They were extra attentive in making sure my party was taken care of, Robert really took me through the logistics of making things work & Candice was so patient & gave us all excellent service. I’ll definitely try to have more gatherings there because of the outstanding service!

My husband and I discovered Sage Vegan Bistro when we were looking for a good vegan restaurant within a few miles of the Music Center. Lots of good choices on the menu and the prices are reasonable. There’s a fun, casual vibe and the staff is friendly and attentive. We have already recommended it to others and will continue to do so. I had the Eggplant Pasta Arrabiatta and my husband had the pizza with eggplant. So delicious!

We used to go to Sage but the acoustics were horrible. We were really happy to discover that with the new bar area and better seating design there seemed to be no problem any longer with noise level. Amazing food as always, but the prices did go up so that was disappointing.

Sage Vegan Bistro has mastered the production of tasty plant based food. However, my sense is that, to achieve that mastery, they prepare the food in a fashion that makes it not quite so good for you. As in, some dishes are a bit too oily and salty.

But careful ordering and communicating with your server will insure that you can minimize some of the prep and ingredients that aren't really the best for you.

Vegan tapas in a very nice atmosphere. Dishes were very good to excellent. Service was a mixed bag - we mistakenly made a reservation for the wrong night, and the hostess cheerfully sat us after waiting just a few minutes. That was great. On the down side, we waited for about 15 minutes before our waiter came by (though we were told that the wait staff was backed up). We were there somewhat early and the restaurant wasn't full, so it seemed a bit strange. The food came quickly after ordering. We never saw the waiter again, but another waiter helped us out for desert ordering. All in all highly recommended for vegan fare. I suspect the wait staff issue was isolated - maybe they were shorthanded that night.

DEElicious food. Loved the raw tacos and salted caramel cheesecake. The service was great as well. The prices are high ($9 for the cheesecake) but not out of line for vegan food.
The one big negative...it is VERY LOUD in the restaurant even when they put you "upstairs where it's quiet."
