Excellent service and food. The meal was absolutely fabulous! The flavors in the roasted brussel sprout salad were unique and flavorful - i.e., the crisp, warm sprouts on top of arugula with blue cheese and onions. Likewise, the seafood medley of crab, shrimp and scallops was outstanding! Terrific dining! Will definitely return!

We took a friend there for his birthday celebration and none of us were disappointed. I had duck which was sublime. One in the group had scallops and shrimp and it looked scrumptious. My husband, who loves salmon, was a little disappointed in the size of the piece of salmon....he may have been VERY hungry. All in all, we will most definitely be back. It was a wonderful dining experience.....don’t know which was best....the food or the service!

The food was very good, but extremely slow. We had a 6:30 reservation and were seated right away. The server was polite and efficient, but our salads didn’t get served for 1 1/2 hours. After salads, we waited a long time again. The whole dining time was three hours.

This is our favorite fine dining in the area. It is also our go to restaurant for happy hour and food. If you're looking for a party atmosphere this is not the place, but if you're looking for adult fun, then look no further. Sage has some of the best experienced bartenders, servers and staff in the area who are professional and courteous. Their food is amazing and creative. Sage is where you go for a fine dining experience in Tallahassee hands down.

This was my first visit to Sage and it won't be my last since I'd like to give it another try and hope that my first visit was a fluke. I had the spinach and gruyere cheese omelet with roasted potatoes and veggies. The eggs themselves had little taste and the spinach gave it a very bitter taste. I'm guessing too much lemon and/or garlic was used and ended up just eating the egg portion. The potatoes were also a little dull and the veggies were no where near roasted. My friend had the mushroom crepe and it was lovely.

Both our appetizers and entrees were wonderful! The Tempura oysters were perhaps the finest fried oysters I’ve ever had. One entree was seasonal vegetables and the other was Scottish salmon. Wine list is quite sufficient and the bar seemed to be doing a brisk business on the night we attended. This establishment deserves its lofty ratings.

We had our "date night" here for brunch last Sunday and, as usual, it was fabulous. I had a mimosa and the orange juice was like taking a bite out of an orange. So good. I tried the deviled egg appetizer because my eye always hovers over this item on the menu so I decided it was time to go for it. And I'm glad I did. They were really good. The filling wasn't overpowering and the perfect base for the toppings. For my meal I had the special omelet. So good. The only tiny comment I had was the food seemed to be a little salty, but, that could be because I am trying to cut back on my intake. Probably perfectly perfect for most anyone else. We always love going here and will do so again in the future.

Best of Breed in Tallahassee! Having moved back 10 years ago, I've always found that Sage offers the most innovative and tasty food presentations. Having come back to Tallahassee from California after a 30 year absence, it is a welcomed meal at Sage to enjoy current food techniques, farm to table foods, and great service. A real winner.

We went for a date just a couple days after we got married. Our server was knowledgable about the menu and we ended getting 2 of the specials, the beet and orange salad, and 2 entrees (shrimp and scallops, and the duck and quail). Everything was delicious but I could tell that the greens in the duck entree weren't washed properly and had grains of sand in some of the bites. Other than that the experience was a very nice one for our first visit.

Food was excellent and service very good without being intrusive. Expensive, but made for a great anniversary dinner.
Was sort of surprised when scotch on the rocks was served in a glass full of small ice "chips". I had been thinking a cube or two when I ordered. My error for not specifying, but good scotch shouldn't ever be diluted to the extent that results from ice chips!
