Great ambiance and food, not too expensive. Fine wine selection. Fish or meat, can't go wrong!

Food was pricey, but excellent. Our waiter was busy but attentive. The kitchen was very slow took 1.5 hours! For our food!

We have come here every year for the last 10 years. The food and service are normally outstanding. There are many choices in Santa Fe but we chose Red Sage again. Brenda, the host ignored us tapping on her tablet until I said “hi”. We were the only ones in line. The restaurant was practically empty at 5:30 pm and I asked to be seated at one of the 4 tables open by the window . Brenda said no they were reserved. We had made reservations months in advance. The tables were still empty when we left.

The service by Evan was great at the table, however, I ordered a filet, medium, and I’ve never seen a square filet. It was totally over cooked and tough. I ate one bite, it was terrible. I will not come back for rude treatment and tough steaks.

Pleasant restaurant in a nice, open setting, big windows to see the clear New Mexico sky. Wait staff pleasant & attentive but not intrusive. Calamari app was great! Salads were fresh. Entrees are interesting, sea bass was tasty. Martini was perfect! Table next to us was having steak entrees & we heard a lot of oohs & aahs coming from the group. They did look delicious. Next time it's steak! We've dined there a few times, anniversaries & just to get away. Thank you for the great service, food & pleasant environment.

Food was good. Ordered a cowboy steak which is a bone in ribeye. Got a regular ribeye. Flavor was very good though. Calamari was outstanding! Creamed spinach had good flavor just a touch too much flour though. Queso Fundido was more like chile cheese dip, but flavor was excellent. They have a wonderful wine selection. Service was excellent

The calamari was very over cooked, the Brussels sprouts were undercooked and it was very expensive for a very poor meal! Would never go back or recommend.

Everything about Red Sage was very good, except the wine menu. The wine list is extensive and well chosen, but the "managers specials" (on a separate page) were insulting to anyone with even a basic knowledge of wine. I ordered a La Crema Chardonnay from the specials page and when our server brought it, I noticed it was a 2008 vintage. I asked for a later year, but was told that was the only bottle on special. I informed our server that California chardonnays have a maximum shelf life of 5-7 years and the La Crema he was serving us is 11 years old. I was willing to taste the wine and our server said he would check with the manager. He returned telling us the manager said "if the bottle is opened, you've bought it". This is unacceptable for a 4 star rated restaurant. I ordered a different bottle from the main wine menu and it was perfect, but overpriced at triple retail. Other than the wine fiasco, our meals were delicious and perfectly prepared. Service was outstanding. Our server was polished and professional, doing an outstanding job with the handicap of working with poor management.

We had a really nice meal. The steak was cooked as ordered and I liked all my food. My husband had the scallops and he enjoyed them too. We had reservations but it was busy. The service was on point.

The food was mediocre at best and expensive for what you receive. Meats are all over $34 and ala carte. Veggies will cost you $7-14.

We eat here every year when we visit Santa Fe and we were very disappointed with the food this time. Lobster was over cooked/ chewy and did not like that it was not a whole tail anymore but two small ones added with a mixture of tomatoes, corn and sauce which was not good. Next my husbands NY strip had no flavor. Only item that was good was the salad. We will not eat here next time we visit due to this experience.

When we arrived for our reservation, we were immediately seated but both my husband and I noticed it was overly warm in the restaurant. Our server, Efrain, told us the air was out and offered to seat us on the covered patio. It was beautiful out there and soon it started raining. What a wonderful evening! Cannot praise Efrain enough - he went above and beyond the call of duty!

The food was good but too expensive for what you got. They were very understaffed for a holiday weekend. We arrived a few minutes before our reservation and had to wait until exactly our reservation time to be seated even though there were multiple empty tables. The chairs were dirty with crumbs from the previous diners. Our table was not the only one with dirty chairs. We waited about 15 minutes before the waiter came to our table to greet us and take our drink order. Our waiter was very nice and he was running around as fast as he could to help all his tables. The kitchen seemed slow getting the food out; we waited for quite some time to get our food. Maybe this was an off night but I would not eat here again. Not worth the price.

We arrived to our table. The first thing I noticed once I sat down was a long hair weaving through both of my forks. Not a good start. Our server remedied that issue. We received our menus they were just flimsy sheets of paper. They were also dirty for a high end restaurant as this could be considered. They also didn’t have a couple of items. We ordered our food. The steak while prime was on the tough side, it was cooked well done. I had the Salmon I thought it was a tad over cooked but not a issue for myself. We had also ordered some drinks. They were done well good bartender on this night. The menu had changed since the previous visit. A little more variety and having everything available would have been a plus. Not sure we will return but never can be sure. Especially for the price paid. Most important server and bartender were excellent.

Menu, Wine List and Desert Menu all had to be amended by the server. 10oz Filet was a bit tough but was served on a sauce that tasted like KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce, spinach side was canned or made way ahead of time and potato’s under done.
Lemon Tarte which was a new add not on the menu appeared to be purchased and the berries were not fresh. The cherry’s on the dish were bottles not fresh.
Service was adequate but a little over attentive. For the price a letdown

I came in with a group on 5/28/19 and order the the New York Strip, it was absolutely delicious. It was well seasoned and cook perfectly. So much so that when my husband came into on Friday, I decided to treat him on Saturday. I order 2 New York strips steak entrees, they were so bland and had no seasoning, I end up sending 1 back bc I couldn't see my self paying $40 for a unseasoned piece of meat. I would have sent the other back but my husband was starving and ate a portion. When I told the waiter about the problem, he said that there was a more seasoned chef there on Tuesday and someone new on Saturday. Which still shouldnt matter?

Ordered a well done filet , it came burnt on top and red inside. They took it back to cook it more and it came back looking like charcoal. It was awful , didn’t end up eating.

It was our anniversary which was shared with the restaurant hours prior to reservations. I asked that we sit outside, recognize our anniversary to my fiancé (a little surprise) and anything else they might do to help celebrate our anniversary.
First of all they didn’t sit outside, they didn’t recognize our anniversary when we checked in to be seated nor did they say anything about the occasion until it was time to pay the check. That’s when the hostess came up and apologized for not sitting us outside or recognizing our anniversary. And the manager came up and said “don’t leave we have a surprise” a couple minutes later they brought out some dessert. Anyway, we probably won’t go there again especially it’s its a special occasion.

The lobster tail was tough and stringy- hard to eat. Veggies weren’t good, sauce wasn’t tasty and they weren’t tender.
My daughters strip steak was tough, but tasted ok.
They were out of creme brûlée , it was only 6!pm. Chocolate pudding wasn’t anything special, tasted like jello pudding.
Very disappointed in the meal.
Service was great, however.

I’ve eaten here before and had good experiences but today was definitely not it. Our appetizers came out 30 minutes after ordering it and our dinner 30 minutes after that. I had guests from out of town and I decided to them there but I really wish I hadn’t. We spoke to the manager who had nothing much to say other then she will take the kids meals off the bill for the wait. On top of that, the food was not appetizing at all - the steak and burgers had absolutely no flavor and the salads were frozen. I am pretty sure this will be my last time there.

For a “fine dining” restaurant, it was very mediocre. Our steaks were rather tough. This restaurant was subpar overall.

We have been to this restaurant many times in the past and the food was always excellent along with the service. This time, while they were busy because of a concert that night, service was exceptionally slow... the waiter assigned to our table never came to us and we got a diferent server... he tried hard but was forever busy. The food was cold when it finally got to us, and they ran out of filets right after taking our order. The table next to us had to return the food as it was not prepared correctly, and by the time it got to them, they had to leave to make the concert (they were there in plenty of time but service was way too slow). We were seated at a small table so close to the next table we could have shared their conversation without trying. Overall, the service and food quality has gone way down hill. It will be awhile before we return.
