Steakhouse
The Sage Room at Harvey's has been a Tahoe landmark since opening in 1947. An elegant Western-themed steak house, The Sage Room is popular with locals and guests alike.



The Sage Room’s décor includes original Native American lamps that were gifted to Harvey's from the Washoe Tribe, the original bar, and hand-hewn beams that were part of the original log cabin that housed Harvey's in 1944.



The Sage Room features unique appetizers and salads prepared table side, along with Black Angus steaks, poultry, veal, lamb, Beef Wellington and seafood. Dessert specialties include Bananas Foster and Cherries Jubilee, both prepared table side.

I think there should be more signs directing the way to the Sage Room. We were late for our reservation trying to find the place!

Wonderful evening. Food was absolutely incredible. The view of the lake was outstanding. Our experience from the second we entered the door to the second we left was one of the best dining experiences we’ve ever had. We will be back.

For decades the Sage Room had been our very favorite - the benchmark for all other restaurants around the world - but, unfortunately, this time we were extremely disappointed. We preferred the ambiance in the original location (intimate with dark wood and cozy booths) which provided an "elegant western steakhouse" feel. The restaurant has now been moved to the top floor of the hotel (which provides an amazing view of the lake) BUT absolutely no warmth or ambiance at all. Instead it's a very large, open, sterile environment. In addition, the dishes which were always prepared tableside were no longer being done at the table. They said it was cause of Covid but it seemed like they certainly could have done the tableside preparation with masks and gloves. That always enhanced the "dining experience" and allowed the chef to "custom make" your dish. Also, you'd enjoy the lovely aromas and "entertainment" of all of the various dishes being prepared throughout the restaurant........ not just your own..... particularly when it was a smaller, more intimate restaurant. VERY disappointed that the tableside prep was no longer being offered. About half of our dishes were up to their old standards (escargot is DELICIOUS, filets are tender and tasty, baked potatoes, etc.) but the dishes that we truly loved (tableside Caesar salad, tableside Bananas Foster) were just not as good when they are simply done in the kitchen. Bottom line: at least for us the Sage Room has lost it's character and lost it's magic. It no longer feels like a "special" place........ just another "Vegas-style" ultra-modern restaurant serving food.

We've always had a soft spot for the Sage Room because of their classic dishes prepared table side. Food and service were good but due to covid they've discontinued certain items. The Cafe Diablo used to be a show and after dinner drink in one! We missed it during our meal. We'll come back one table side service can be safely resumed.

Food was not up to Sage standard. $75 steak had a “paste” of blue cheese versus crumbles on it as advertised. Wasn’t that appetizing

Been going to Sage room “on Casino floor” location for about 30 years, and loved every visit, but now that they are on 19th floor, the whole vibe is wrong, not intimate and as classy as I have become accustomed to. The chateaubrieand(sp) was “off”, flavor not there, chewy, and just not impressive as the Sage Room was before.
It also bothered me that the serving cart is 5 feet long and multiple layers and they had at least two other tables food on same cart when they served us and in this Covid world, I dont want my food next to other unmasked diners so close. We were served first, and someone’s porterhouse or ribeye was about one foot from us, and since we were dining we had removed our masks..... sorry porterhouse/ribeye diners.

Come on Sage Room, get it together! Not sure If I will return 😢

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and wanted somewhere special. We had gone to the Sage room before they moved up to the Kitchen 19 location and were always happy with the food and service. We were not disappointed, food was great and so was the service. Having a beautiful view of Lake Tahoe topped it off. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

They need to work on their food. The Sage Room was known for their excellent food and I wont go back there. For as much as is charged, it isn’t worth it.

Disappointed describes our experience. Waited over an hour for food. Jim, our server, did a good job. Apologizing multiple times for the slowness. We would not have minded if the food was superb. Mediocre is the best way to describe my surf and turf. Sent the lobster back ... over cooked... came back about the same. It seemed most everything was over seasoned. Not impressed at all.

The Sage Room touts is linage and the physical structure supports this take away. Even giving extra credit for C -19 the place shows its age. On the brighter side the food and service was excellent! All in al the phrase “One and done” applies!

Always went to Sage Room on Lower level. Enjoyed the tableside service and the food. Always recommended to my friends. Since moving to 19th floor the view is beautiful and the service was great! Unfortunately can't say the same about the food. The Chef uses too much SALT! Not edible. Good food with good flavor does not need over salting! Need a new chef or a new menu!

We had a beautiful dinner, Evan the server was professional and also showed us a personality you don’t find in steakhouses. My Rack of lamb was cooked to perfection, my wife had the sea bass which was perfect to her. I love escargot and she loves oysters we had both and we weren’t disappointed. Rinsed it down with a Tomasi Amarone. Next time I go back Evan will be my requested server
