Sage Student Bistro - Institute for the Culinary Arts
A great date night venue. Menu was creative and everything we ordered was delicious and the presentation was impeccable. The service was top notch. The food items were reasonably priced; however, the wine at $13.00 a glass was over priced.
Outstanding table service, in support of an outstanding kitchen!
Sage Student Bistro is a hidden gem in Omaha. Not only are you supporting students in culinary school - you are getting insanely inexpensive prix fixe meals that are creative, delicious and fun to eat. 5 Stars!
I highly recommend anyone who loves creative food, or things you won't find anywhere else! The students create everything from the menu to the delicious meals with precision and care! The service is impeccable. Very affordable, for such great dishes. I had the Chicken Crepe Gratinee and it was amazing! Light and fluffy and with a delightful sauce, that was slightly sweet! Everyone should go to experience the Student Sage Bistro!
An amazing experience all around! We'll be going back again. Our compliments to the student chefs!
These are culinary students. The food will be good, and the service will be weird.
Unique and fun experience. Really enjoyed the food.
Excellent food and service in an environment where you could tell everyone genuinely cared about the dining experience.
Super fun experience! Wonderful food and atmosphere! Try it out- you will love it!
Food, service and atmosphere were all top notch. Food presentation and flavor combinations exceeded expectations and the gentleman server was adept at anticipating needs (extra silverware, drink refills, etc). I am looking forward to going back- thank-you for sharing the campus bistro with the general public. Enjoyable experience!
Wonderful food and good service. Perfect location for a special event!
Outstanding - again. Great atmosphere, lovely space too.
We have been long time diners at the Bistro and it’s predecessor location on the north end of the Campus. The food is always top rate and yesterday was no exception! There was an issue that I believe was out of everyone’s control. We had a reservation, but not sure If everyone did. It appeared there were many MCC employees dining as well including staff from the Culinary program. We have had service issues in the past so unfamiliarity and a little awkwardness was understood. Apparently the kitchen got backed up which resulted in some entrees coming well before others, etc. Management did its best to assure us that we would get our food eventually.
I feel bad for all involved but just part of the learning experience.
What an outstanding experience it is to have dinner at Sage!
I had my office, 9 people, over the noon hour for a holiday luncheon. The food was amazing and we got a huge variety of excellent food! The worked really hard to get us served so we could get back to work but did not compromise on quality. We were all very pleased. I would highly recommend Sage Student Bistro!
Once again, an outstanding experience. Kudos to the new student staff in the kitchen and in the front of the house!
Everything was great from check in throughout the night. The server, Kassandra, was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was fantastic and service exceptional.
A new look and updated menu. Always worth going to the Bistro.
This was day one for Sage to be open this quarter. The menu was new and different from the normal lunch offerings in the area. The service was quick and the quality was well worth the price. We will certainly be visiting again soon!
It was our first time, but won’t be the last. Very attentive server.Food was fresh and delicious. I especially loved the apple hand 🥧
I've always had a wonderful experience at the Sage Student Bistro. This time was no different another very good experience.
I always enjoy lunch at the Bistro! It provides a lovely environment, great food, and a reasonable price! What more could you ask for!!! I recommend them every chance I get. You can't go wrong with the Sage Student Bistro!!!
The Customer, especially the person greeting customers at the door, is the very impression of the overall experience, this person important to the outcome for any customer, especially first time customers. For a Fine Dining Restaurant, the servers MUST understand how important attitude is for first impressions.
It was great. A great experience Ive never ate in a fine dining establishment I loved it.
Absolutely a top notch experience comparable to any of the best restaurants. I enjoyed the server and found the people delivering the food to be very attentive and hospitable, explaining to my wife and I the makeup of each course of the meal. The first thing we were served was the Blini, and it was AMAZINGLY good. The Risotto was equally delectable. I had no idea that Omaha had such great cuisine.
Omahans need to check out the work of the budding chefs at Metro Community College. The Bistro is a great place to go.
The best salmon I've ever had has been at the Bistro. Every way it is prepared has been perfect.
* Friendly and knowledgeable service.
* We all enjoyed some dishes we had never had before.
* A minor issue - my short rib was 80% fat. Another person in the party had the same dish and the fat on his was much more reasonable.
Student Prix Fixe menu by Kristin Lee was wonderful, seasonal and well balanced in flavor profile.
Although it took some extra time for the dessert to arrive, the server kept up informed and was attentive. A lovely lunch-close to perfection!
Very good service and delicious food! We will definitely be back.
I'd consider myself a moderate foodie and Sage never disappoints. We indulged in duck fat fries for our lunch appetizer. The entrees we on target. Service was a bit slow but that's ok because it was clear to me our server did not have table experience before joining the culinary program.
The value is amazing. The ambiance is perfect for conversation. The food is amazing (I had never had vegetarian cassoulet before and it was flavorful), the price is a delight.
THIS is a place that I'd put on the Best of Omaha list.
Every time I am at Sage the experience exceeds the one before. Needless to say I will be back -- next week actually.
My lunch was delicious. Our service was great. They were very good to our large group. I look forward to eating there again.
Part of the fun at the Sage bistro is talking to the students. They always seem excited to share their knowledge of the dishes and methods used to prepare them.
As always, our meals were beautifully presented, and wonderfully delicious.
Also, It’s an outstanding value! There’s no other place in Omaha where you can get a quality dining experience like this at this price.
I wish they could be open more days, but since it is a school they have their limits!
Everyone was so friendly and made us feel special. The students did a great job taking care of Frank and myself. Food was good, service was excellent, and the overall experience was a lot of fun! It was a great choice and Frank really enjoyed it as my guest! Thanks, Mike
The Bistro continues to provide great food and service at a very reasonable price!
The students really benefit from this real world model environment.
Our group very much enjoyed our dining experience.
The Sage is fast becoming my favorite restaurant. Here you get an opportunity to try different foods you may not get the opportunity to try. Our entire tables shares our food. So if something isn't pleasing, there is someone else who loves it! Staff is very professional and friendly. My niece brought in a bottled of wine from home to share with us at dinner. I've never dined any where that allowed this. Love it!
We have dined at Sage a number of times. Each and every time has been a memorable experience. Ambiance, food quality, and service is superior. We are always pleasantly surprised by the menu offerings. Kudos to the culinary arts program and the instructors. You've made Sage Bistro a dining highlight in Omaha.
