Good food, very pleasant waiter, comfy seat location, and I love the wall decorations of local artists works for sale.

Sage is great on a weekday for lunch. It was. I hope it continues to be. I had never seen it so crowded on a week night. We were cramped. The noise was very bad--everyone trying to talk over the noise, which continued to grow. The menu is tired. The lamb was a big disappointment --the sauce tasted like, well . . . cafeteria fare. I have never had a less enjoyable meal.

I worry that Sage will become a less than desired place for a quiet and well prepared meal. We need Sage. Why book more people than you can possibly serve well?

We had a wonderful meal in every regard made better by the superlative service by our server Luis. Both the appetizers (fresh oysters) and entrees ( duck and pork tenderloin) were prepared to perfection. As wonderful as the food was, the service, expertise and kindness shown b Luis made a fine meal truly exceptional. When we return (soon) we will make certain to join him for our meal..

Unfortunately it was a disappointing experience. Our table wasn't ready at our reservation time, we had to ask to be waited on, and our waiter never told us specials and seemed too busy. Our meal of shrimp and scallops was okay, but wouldn't order it again.

Sage is Tallahassee’s premier restaurant. We frequent Sage and have never been disappointed. Our favorite selections are the Fried Oysters for appetizers, roasted brussel sprout salad with blue cheese and the tenderloin entree. And the wine selection is a delight. It is pricey but definitely worth it.

Always enjoy my dining experience at Sage. The best quiche in town. Appreciated being able to have a long leisurely lunch visit with an out of town relative I'd not seen in several years.

Our experience was fabulous And the hostess found a more quiet table for us, because I told her one person in our party was a big hard of hearing...she put us in a corner, which really helped with the chatter. Our server was sweet and all four meals were YUM!

Sage is an trully treasure of Tallahasse. There are no words to describe flavors and freshness, outstanding service from begin to end, a fantastic bread from NY, a kimchi that transported me to Korea, an a guyaba dessert to forget diets. We look forward to return every time we visit Tally.

When we lived in Tallahassee, we frequented SAGE because of its local charm, Terry's masterful skill as Chef and the warm and welcoming staff/servers. The cuisine is exceptional and original.
The expanded dining room with bar has provided opportunities for casual, after-work meetings or dining.

LOVE THIS PLACE!

Wonderful place that strives to please and aims to wow! I love the menu which changes with the seasons as food is fresh and seasonal. Blue crab cakes are amazing, it’s an appetizer so it’s a little small but so worth it! Sometimes I get a cup of soup and the Crab Cakes and it’s the perfect amount. Their soups are so good and you can taste the freshness. Beautiful atmosphere and wonderful staff!
