This was my first time going to the vegan bistro in Echo Park. I enjoyed the cauliflower wings and highly recommend them. I ordered the soul bowel. I did not like the price of the drink with no refills and it was not sweet. I ordered the Strawberry Lemonade. At typical meal will cost you $20 a plate per person. I enjoyed myself and was give free vegan ice cream for my birthday that was coconut milk based. Thank you for the experience.

Dined here on our first night visiting our daughter who lives here. Delicious food with so many wonderful selections. I had the butternut squash ravioli and my husband and two daughters opted for the pizzas. Great service and ambiance. We will be back.

I came and had an early dinner for my birthday before we headed off to a Dodgers game. I loved everything about the place. It was bright, clean and super convenient. The staff was friendly and kept checking up on us. There is plenty of parking behind the restaurant too. I would definitely come again. And most importantly, it's Vegan! I was so excited to visit. This was my first time here.

Sage is a really fun restaurant. Excellent vegan food which appeals to meat lovers as well. The beer drinkers in our group also enjoyed the beer. Also very good for gluten free.

Love this place . It’s more urban hip than the Pasadena location, and if I lived closer I would come more often for sure. Food was great. I got a bowl and it was plenty for lunch and enough leftovers to take home for light dinner later.

Really nice server named Candice! She is a true all star in the industry. Our host had a bit of an attitude but otherwise all was well. Nice menu variety with something for everybody. Filling portions. The ambience as nice because it felt like a normal restaurant - not "in your face plant-based" with a live plant wall or something, it just felt like a normal cute cafe. Another nice feature is that they have baked items and coffee to go in the front, or you can be seated for a full meal. Great Echo Park brunch spot! Vegan menu is a delightful plus. Again, Candice was great!

Food was too salty and burnt in places. Avocado toast was very disappointing. Drinks were good but pricy. Too expensive for the quality of food. Server was fine but not attentive. Would have appreciated more water on the table.

Disappointing for the price.

It Is exactly what you expect but over priced. Vegan / vegetarian food can and SHOULD be cheaper than the meat alternatives, not more expensive. A plate of maybe half a head of cauliflower with buffalo sauce should not cost more than the wings of half a dozen chickens. Don’t get me wrong, they are delicious cauliflower. But if you take a bottle of Franks, some clarified butter (or vegan alternative) you’ll find that you could create this dish easily for less than $4. I understand the economics of a restaurant, but still, £15-17 dollar ‘share plates’ feel overpriced. Nachos come with a generous helping of jackfruit ‘carnitas’ which is a popular draw at Sage, it’s good as far as jackfruit carnitas go, slightly under seasoned with a ‘liquid smoke’ aftertaste.
There is a good selection of drinks, in house microbrewery with changing featured beers, carafes of wine (I had a decent red at my last visit - full bodied and fruity Pinot Noir from Oregon)
I have visited the restaurant many times and tried various menu items, lots of friends seem to want to meet here and i’m always excited to eat at vegan spots, however, I tend to feel dissapointed at the end of each meal at Sage and nervous of the bill.
