Simply put....great dining experience. Took a non-vegan....really enjoyed the food.
Enjoyed our birthday event thoroughly. It was a bit noisy, but the food was delicious and the drinks were tasty. Took a little bit for some guests meals to arrive, but no complaints in the end.
Everything was delicious! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone, vegan or not.
We had a lovely waitress. But, the food that we ordered was not great, except for the Gluten Free pretzel. My Kale salad could have benefitted by mixing in some romaine and more crunch and for the price maybe serving a piece of bread along with it. My husbands breakfast burrito was bland and my son-in-laws avacado toast looked unappealing. The radishes on top were cut way to thick. This was our second time here so we must have thought it was good the first time, everything thing on the menu should be reach for the best especially for the price so needless to say we will not be back.
I'm not a vegan but my son is, and we were celebrating his birthday so he picked the restaurant! It was packed on a rainy night -- and and tables were a little closer than I normally like... but it didn't matter! The entire night was fantastic. The food was yummy (I had chicken marsala with mashed potatoes and carrots). However, our server was BEYOND fabulous. Made suggestions that were on point, was energetic, timely, friendly and a great singer. She sang the most amazing rendition of Happy
Birthday to my son and she made the evening absolutely memorable.
My family and I enjoyed the food but the one thing we found a negative to was it was a bit too salty. Other than that we enjoyed the overall experience.
Service was good although food was a bit greasy
The food was amazing. So happy we found it. Will definitely be back. Loved the egg plant parmesean.
Great experience. It was our second time here. The food was outstanding complimented by impeccable service. Thank you for making my daughters birthday great.
As always, everything was amazing! We tried the Mac and Cheese pizza with the Buckwheat crust and the GF noodle pesto with broccoli and other veggies and the pickled cabbage on top. I forgot the name! For our appetizer we got the corn cakes. Everything was delicious and fresh. We were disappointed with the lack of taste of the espresso cheesecake.
The servers are fabulous and they have fantastic managers! It’s like a family if you go often.
We did have to wait a bit although we had reservations, but it was understandable as it was Valentine’s Day evening. Nevertheless, we enjoyed the food and the service. I appreciated the heat lamps outside and the blanket they provided was a very nice touch.
The Valentine’s Day menu was spectacular! Sage did such an amazing job with the food, service, managing reservations, everything! Couldn’t recommend this place more and can’t wait to go back. Thanks for making Valentine’s Day special ❤️
They were kind of under staffed so we weren’t that serviced well. My waiter forgot things that I ordered. I only saw him twice, to take my order and to bring my check.
I went for my birthday and the brunch was amazing!
Dine at Sage Bistro regularly and have never been disappointed. A great place for delicious and health cuisine.
My friends and I truly enjoyed the food. And, fully took advantage of DineLA. Our server Jennifer was awesome, too! :)
Thanks for booking my RSVP.
Loved it so much returned
Great plant base food and ice cream!
Fantastic food and experience! I wish we could try more things on the menu. The beer flight was wonderful and our dishes were fantastic. The bread pudding left something to be desired, but was more than made up for by the orange chicken and other bowls.
Our first time dining. We order from dine LA menus and the food was excellent. Great ambiance made up for the slow service.
We have been to another location but first time here. Loved the ambience, location and its huge. Would definitely return.
Food was delicious. My mom has a gluten allergy and is vegan so this was the perfect Saturday night dinner. We enjoyed the nachos, which were so good with the jackfruit! We will be back soon!
The flautas on the brunch menu were outstanding. The only snafu is that Sage told Open Table I didn’t show up, so I had to hassle with that. Might need to train hosts or whoever keeps track of that documentation.
I recently went plant-based and have been cooking all my own food, very simple dishes. Our dinner at Sage was SUCH a treat. The nachos blew my mind and my husband (NOT plant-based) also loved his eggplant parmesan. The meal was truly delicious. And I'm not saying it was great "for vegan food". It was great PERIOD. Can't wait to go back.
Great selection of entrees, side dishes and desserts in a wonderful location of Old Town Pasadena. Prices were a bit high. We opted for water instead of a $9 glass of strawberry lemonade. Service was prompt and professional. Restaurant is cozy and has a beautiful patio for outside dining.
It took some time for the waitress to get to our table and take our order, I’d say 15 minutes? Then when our order came, I wanted extra ketchup but didn’t even try to flag her down because she was no where to be found. Then it took over 30minutes to find someone to give us the bill. I had to go to the front entrance to ask for my bill, who then said the waitress will be right with us. He was no help! After 15 minutes I finally found her! I politely asked for the bill while she was trying to multi task and putting in a new order for another table. I felt so bad, but seriously we really had to go. The table next to us was frustrated and rolling their eyes lol. The waitress was very nice but probably over worked. The food was great, but maybe they need to hire another waitress to help the poor lady. I probably won’t go back if I was ever in a crunch with time, only if I had 2+ hours to loosely spare.
We were visiting town and found this restaurant online. Excellent food but the server was overloaded with tables I believe. We had to hunt him down a number of times! Some of the items seem inappropriately overpriced. Two jalapeños cut in half with some vegan cheese does not equate to $15! The eggplant Parmesan was over the top amazing! Worth every dime.
The food was excellent as was the service
Food was great but the service was not that good. The waiters are nice but they don’t check on you after the food was served. You have to ask them for drink refills. Waited for 30 minutes to serve the vegan ice cream for dessert. When the ice cream was served to us it was already melted. We ordered an ice cream for dessert but instead we got a milkshake.
We are vegan and we love Sage. The problem with this location was, quite simply, the location which we didn't realize would be so difficult to find, not accessible for a person with a disability, and without convenient parking. Also, the men's bathroom was also inconvenient, especially for a person with a disability. Very disappointing not to be able to get mac & cheese on the brunch. M&C pizza did not appeal. One person got chilaquiles that started out okay but were soon way to soaking with sauce. Beans and rice don't belong. Ambiance is wonderful - server was A+.
First time trying vegan & it was pretty good ... will come again with my vegan peeps
Food was OK, although pricey for what you get. Service was bad. Waited several minutes before waitress can to get our drink orders, then another 30 minutes with no follow up. Had to speak to manager to get someone to wait on us
Christmas office party
Excellent food and one of the best ways I've seen vegan food prepared. There are a lot of gluten-free and soy-free options which is excellent for the dietary needs of my family.
Everything went very well! The only issue was splitting the check for a big party. The checks had items scattered everywhere and everyone just wanted to pay for their own making it very uncomfortable and difficult.
I'm not a Vegan, but the hamburger I had was great!!! It's cool to try something new that is healthy. Love the service and location! Thank you!
