    We’re so happy to have found this little hidden gem of a restaurant. My husband has all sorts of food allergies, so for him to be able to dine freely is a big deal! Not to mention the food is delicious, a flavor explosion! The atmosphere is like a little European cafe with lovely dining music in the background. The waiter was great as well, very knowledgeable and personable. We will definitely be back!

    I was very excited to try this place. Went there for Mother’s Day. The food was average and very expensive for a prix fixe menu. The dessert was terrible. Will give it a try again when they have the regular menu available.

    Sapien's is amazing. Being it's a Paleo restaurant I don't have to worry about dairy, gluten or soy. We drive an hour just to eat here and it's worth it. Great food, great service!

    Food was outstanding -- chef can definitely cook the kind of food we like to eat, so I hope this place stays around! However, as a restaurant, it was a mediocre experience. BYOB was a minor inconvenience, because I've always got a nice bottle of wine around the house that I could bring along. Real issue is the front of the house operation -- it really isn't really up to par. Service was friendly, but they didn't seem to know how to tend to guests, orders took quite a while to arrive, didn't arrive at the same time, and while we really enjoyed our meals, we didn't feel like "guests" if that makes sense.

    This was our first visit, and we were pleasantly surprised. The menu options are great, the food was prepared well. The best part was the BYOB we were able to bring a bottle of wine from home, and charged a small corking fee from the restaurant. The service was great and our server was very friendly, giving suggestions off the menu.

    We shared an appetizer, and it was very good, stuffed mushrooms. My salad was good but nothing special . My friend had a burger and said it was horrible. Service was very good. Staff was attentive and made sure our water glasses were always full. Lighting is too dark for comfort. It seems to want to be to a Boho cozy place. It could be, but needs more color and a separate bathroom for men and women. Probably will not look to be here again, for a long while.

    Three of us went to Sapiens to celebrate 2 of our January birthdays. We did not have any appetizers. We ordered the lamb shank, an ahi special and a 24 oz steak special. We waited a very long time to get our food. Service was average at best even though when we arrived hardly anyone was there- only 1 other table. It was nice to be able to bring our own wine, though a $15 corking fee is very high. The steak was good but marblization was low so not as juicy as it could and should have been. The lamb shank was just suspended over a container of a few root vegetables and an overly salty sauce. The shank had good flavor but was not juicy and seemed a little dried out. The ahi was a very generous sized piece. My friend said it was good, though the bite I had seemed dry. I was super excited about trying this place but see no reason to go back, sadly. And by the way our reservation said it was for a birthday but not one word about that from the staff.

    The vegetables were too hard to chew. Need to cook them longer! When packaging leftovers, do not pack up things I have spit out! Gross. You need to repair the toilet seat in the bathroom; it's very wobbly. I almost fell off my throne! Not as good as it should be for the very high prices.

    Let food be thy medicine! Theres no other restaurants like this in the valley. A privately owned restaurant experience like no other. You have to eat here to understand the difference. The ribeye special, beet tartar, vegan entree and creme brulee were exquisite! Gluten, dairy, grain, soy and peanut free, no seed oils, and no processed junk. This kitchen is cooking all from scratch and it shows! The homemade sauerkraut and grain/gf bread was incredible and developed entirely by the owner. Real food, real people, a real culinary adventure. We will be back as this has become our regular spot. Check out their meal prep and catering options too! Keep up the great work Sapien's!

    I so wanted to love this place as someone who is gluten and dairy free and was paleo for years but unfortunately I did not. Nothing my guests and I ordered was particularly tasty except for the artichoke dip that came with the bread appetizer. I personally did not care for the rabbit stew, it was very sry and having to take it all off the bone is more work than it’s worth

    We brought friends with us who are really picky in their choices and do not follow paleo cooking. They absolutely loved their meals. It is so hard to believe that the food is all paleo. If you want a treat try the escorgot, and or beet salad. The seafood is fresh great and our the Duck was terrific. We had no room for dessert. Food is fresh and plentiful. You will definitely not go wrong to eat here.
