Sage Vegan Bistro - Pasadena
Beautiful space, great service, and outstanding vegan food. This restaurant truly makes a vegan diet so easy. There is so much flavor that my meat eating husband didn't miss a thing.
My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and this place was AMAZING! The food was outstanding and so flavorful and our waitress was so sweet and gave us amazing recommendations for dishes, everything tasted GREAT!! We will definitely come again and we will recommend this place to all of our friends and family!!!
Took my daughter and her 3 friends there for my daughter's 17th birthday - perfect setting and delicious food! Worth the drive from Torrance!
excellent food and service! Had a wonderful time there.
I love Sage and have been a frequent customer to both locations, but I think this will be my first and last time at the location in Pasadena. The food was great, but the service there was absolutely terrible. Our waiter brought us water and took our orders and then we didn't see her again for another 20 minutes. I even asked her if they had ketchup when I chose fries as my side and she said yes, but couldn't be bothered to make sure that I got that when my food came. I had such a hard time getting her attention that I just got up and got the ketchup myself. Now I am not sure if this is entirely her fault, I saw the manager talking to her frequently and it looked like she had way more tables than she could handle. We even saw other people at her tables trying to flag her down so they could get some service since they were having the same issues we were. It was incredibly frustrating to the point where none of us ever want to go back there again. You should at LEAST look over at the people sitting at your tables to see if they are trying to get your attention. It just felt like her back was turned to us the entire time, and the manager didn't seem to pick up on any of this either. I will stick to the Silverlake location from now on, where I have never received service that terrible before.
Good food. friendly staff
I’m very impressed on a continual basis. We will be back.
Good vegan food. A bit expensive but decent. I’ve had some amazing vegan experiences recently but this was only ok. Their happy hour was a decent value and ran all day Monday and Tuesday. We were in a bit of rush other wise we might have spent a bit more time and ordered a wider selection of items.
As vegan restaurants go, this is a good one. They have lots of options and great drinks! We are not vegan but went there for a special occasion. It was a great choice!
I have eaten at Sage Pasadena before and really enjoyed the selection of healthy vegan and vegetarian options. Brought my husband who eats everything and WOW we tried the Chili Cheese fries and OMG! They tasted authentic with the cheese flavor and consistency that blew our minds! Highly recommend ordering this! Really large menu and the drink menu is also extensive. Nice ambiance too! I wanted the spicy macaroni and cheese dish but it had been taken off the menu. However since they had all the ingredients they were happy to make it for me anyway which I greatly appreciated!
First time here and loved it! Vegan and delicious! This place is so cute and tucked away in a little alley in Old Town Pasadena. Loved the atmosphere.
Wait staff is generally inattentive. Has been the same story since they opened the location almost a year ago. Food is good, but the menu doesn’t change.
Great location and service. Food well presented. Flavor too spicy for all the dishes we ordered - heavy on the chilli in all dishes.
Sage Bistro is one of my favorite Pasadena restaurants, and it features amazing vegan and gluten free meals. If you are or aren't vegan, your taste buds will LOVE you for dining here. The food is amazing.
Everything I have had during my three visits has been delicious. The portions are big and the drinks are strong. And the service is fast. I am glad they seem to have more than one person cover your table so there is always someone around to ask questions or ask for extra stuff. Love this place!!
It was great a little loud and busy, but that’s because there was a band playing that night. Service was great and came quickly until dessert which was just then needing to scoop the ice cream. Well worth it though.
It was delious!!! We fell in love with this place. And it’s so beautiful inside. It’s peaceful.
Ordered chips and guacamole that never came (the waiter blamed it on the computer system running out of paper so the order was never printed). Most of the flat bread served with the hummus was cold and hard.
First time here, but will definitely come again. This location was much better than the Echo Park. Same great food, but much larger and better seating. The was wonderful!
Good food and service!
In the several times that I've been here, I have found the food to be of a consistently high-quality. The completely vegan menu is quite extensive, and I have been here with friends who are committed meat eaters who have actually really enjoyed the food. My only complaint is that the noise level at times can be rather deafening, which makes conversation difficult.
Extensive menu selections. Fun cocktails & beers to choose from. Large portions
Awesome vegan place, great outdoor area for dogs, a fun place to bring your vegan friends, or a date, or to try some vegan plates for the first time!
The service started off quite slow but once I found out there was Kombucha (at least five) on tap all was forgiven! Large portions and a cool rustic decor. There is also a nice patio.
Excellent location and lovely outdoor seating. As much as I appreciate the vegan menu, a slice of real cheese would have perfected my veggie burger!
Appreciated the ice cream to celebrate my birthday!
I would’ve given it 5 stars but the AC was out and it felt like it was 100 degrees inside
I love this place! The waitress was soo friendly and the food were amazing! Love their rustic chic theme!
It was a very hot day, but there was no AC or it wasn’t working well, it was SO hot in the restaurant that all of us were sweating.
My friend and I have different allergies and get together often. We're always looking for a special place to have an enjoyable lunch. Sage was great--selections were unique and quite good; waitress was terrific. Guys next to us let us taste the fried cauliflower, which was good. We'd go back. Good job!
We came to Sage to celebrate my daughter's Birthday who is Vega. The rest of us weren't but were pleasantly surprised with the delicious food and all it's various varieties. Would definately come again.
Everything top notch except for heirloom tomatoe basil pizza: horrible soggy bottom.
Have had take out many times, this was the first dine in. Service was a little slow, but it was lunchtime and we were next to the kitchen so it might have affected the overall experience. Would go again and request different table.
The Dine LA menu was amazing! And such a steal with so much food!
Came here for lunch with friends. Had to stand by the door for a few minutes before anyone asked if I needed help. All the employees were standing around and chatting. Food was okay, not amazing but standard “over priced plant based” prices. It’s 90 degrees outside and this place has no AC on. Great location by iPic theatre.
The atmosphere was very relaxed. The waitress was helpful and very patient. Our meal arrived in a short period of time and was very tasty.
I had been cleansing for about a month and wanted to eat something delicious and hearty but not feel guilty, Sage was THE perfect spot for this. I ordered the quesadillas and I could not stop smiling at how much flavor was in the dish and guilt free! I smiled throughout the whole experience and wouldn’t have it any other way.! Loved it!
My non-vegan family loves Sage. It was not as cool inside as I had hoped during a hot, triple digit temperature day. Also, the server didn’t seem to know the menu well. Told us menu had a typo on the time and thus food item ordered wasn’t available. She checked and was wrong. Menu was right. On the plus side, the portions were generous and menu items were delicious and creative. We love the desserts.
Some of the good was great but the jackfruit tacos were terrible: too much vinegar. Also, the air conditioning was horrible. We were unable to enjoy the food due to the heat in the room. We left as soon as possible.
