We had a delicious dinner at Sage.
I had a wonderful salmon cooked perfectly and my first time eating rutabagas. My daughter had a vegan dish and hubbie had a nice duck. The place had a pinch of a smokey smell, which may have been from the wood fired grill. I loved the white burgandy. The process are a pinch high but the food and wine ware artsy and very fine

We came to Sage upon recommendation from friends that we were visiting here in Tallahassee. We were celebrating our anniversary and hoped for a wonderful experience as it was a highly recommended restaurant.
From the moment we sat down and had to wait 15 minutes before the server even came to the table with water to the hour and 45 minute wait before we got our meal the experience was abysmal.
There was no explanation Other than they were backed up. The restaurant wasn’t even that full yet our table and all of the tables around us were waiting for over an hour for any food to show up. The only time the manager showed up was at the end while they were serving all of the tables at the same time approximately an hour and a half to an hour and 45 minutes after ordering. When we complained to her that we had ordered well before any of our tables she said well I’m just trying to be transparent here we want to plate everything all at once. When the food finally arrived it was not edible. I ordered the most expensive plate on the menu which was the bone in ribeye. There was no meat in the ribeye it was pure fat and gristle. My wife’s dish was severely under cooked. Your first mistake was hiring a millennial as the manager of this restaurant. You will be losing customers left and right. It was clear that she was way out of her league and way over her head and offered no explanation of why this restaurant runs so poorly in her hands. I will never go to this place again and if this is the best that Tallahassee can offer ? Well. I guess there’s a reason why Tallahassee isn’t a culinary destination.

I was in the mood for a vegan and gluten free entree. The server accurately conveyed my desired dish to the chef and I was served something even better than what I asked for! I was so pleasantly surprised. The beef tartare appetizer was also absolutely excellent. The best meal I have ever had in Tallahassee.

We had lunch there on a Thursday, it was quite busy (I recommend reservations). The food was very good and excellently presented. Service seemed to be a bit slow which hindered us from getting back to work on time, but I suppose Sage wants you to savor the meal and not rush.

We were visiting Tallahassee, and came to lunch here for our adult son’s birthday. The food was delicious— fantastic crab cakes, delicious burger, amazing salmon entree, wonderful quiche. We enjoyed it so much we came back for a late night dinner, too. Again, stellar cuisine, and fabulous service! We will definitely be back the next time we visit!!

Excellent food and service for a reasonable price. My only critique, as trivial as it is, is that the infrastructure is showing its age. For example, the table was not level and rocked. The toilet was in need of repair or replacement.

What an unexpected surprise! Visiting town for a sports event we chose to dine at Sage based on OpenTable reviews. The food was fantastic - perfectly prepared and presented, very tasty and extremely well priced. Our server was one of the best I have had, just about perfect! The overall experience was better than many supposedly higher end / expensive restaurants that I have been in recently, and was my best restaurant experience of 2019! Well done to all of you at Sage and would recommend to anyone and already have!

We loved the fresh seafood tower even if they were out of crab legs.
My husband wasn't impressed with the pickled anchovies in his Ceasar salad.
The escargot had an unique crunch and was garlicky delicious. The French onion soup wasn't beefy but was fine n dandy. The wine selection and server were great.

Food and service were exceptional! Our lovely server had wonderful recommendations and took great care of us. Had limited wardrobe since we hear evacuating from the hurricane, but were still treated as valued guests. Thank you so much for the great experience! Also glad to see Manifest Gin on the cocktail menu!
