My husband got the Sage Salad with grilled steak, his favorite. I had the chicken mushroom crepe. Both were delicious.

Best restaurant I've dined at in Tallahassee. We had the Bone Marrow and Escargot for appetizers and both were superb. The bread was abundant, fresh with a crispy crust. Get the Beet and orange salad. It was enough for three to share (because we had apps). It was fresh and the dressing complemented the arugula. I ate the shrimp and scallops which was enough food post apps and salad. If you like a lot of food, don't order this dish. My son had a steak and it was cooked as ordered. My husband had the chicken which he said was really tasty. This dish was abundant (enough to take home for lunch). They will make you any kind of martini you like even if it requires muddling. The drink came garnished with a fresh flower. Picture worthy. I would definitely go back!

This is the second time I have visited the restaurant. The first time I only had appetizers and it was pretty good. This time around we had meals from the new menu, and quite honestly I wish we would have stuck with the appetizers. The steak arrived cold and had to be sent back and the chicken was fair. For the amount of money we spent I would have expected everything to be memorable.

Very friendly and appropriate service, something on the menu to appeal to any taste. My only complaint with this restaurant, after dining here regularly, is that the ambiance is a little flat and cold, the tables a little close together; at times, getting bumped into by other patrons or staff can feel uncomfortable. Lunch is a good value, dinner is on the pricey side, but I've never been disappointed.

Dinner was very nice. Our server was attentive, the food was good--especially the escargot and the duck pappardelle. Watch out for the specials, though, since they don't tell you the price if you don't ask: I wish our server or the chalkboard had mentioned that the 12-oz steak was $65! When it's double the price of the other entrees, they should maybe warn people. Ha.

This is the third time we've stopped in Tallahassee with dinner at Sage as our major enticement (sp?).
And this meal easily lived up to expectations.
The tempura fried oysters may have been the best oysters I've ever had.
Our server, Wendy, was very good and very friendly

Sage Salad was presented with about an eye dropper full of dressing. I am a minimal dressing kind of guy so for me to have to ask for dressing is unusual. When I told the server, they commented that I was the third person that day that had requested additional dressing. I have noticed this before at Sage as well. After making the request of the server, it did take a little while to receive the additional dressing but the salad was basically dry without it so I couldn't continue to eat it while I waited.

We made the reservations three weeks in advance and were seated in the bar area. Brussel sprouts were great. It was Saturday night at 7:00 pm. They were out of lamb chops a regular menu item. I substituted the filet. Ordered it medium rare...it came cool red center. I sent it back. It came back warm red center. I’m giving it the benefit of the doubt by assuming it was grass fed. We had to go to the bar ourself to get the check processed. Don’t waste your time...go to Cypress Restaurant.
