Unfortunately sage has changed over the last year or so, not sure if it the lack of instructional personal or just plain bad students, from our greeter to the waiter, and the food, a dismal experience. The list is to long to even begin writing it..
Sorry I can no longer recommend this once shining spot any longer.
I hope they get it straightened out.
Exquisite dining experience, went for a friend's prix fixe and her food was absolutely to die for.
A great place to go for great (and affordable) food. Everything is prepared by students and served by students. They are VERY attentive and provide exceptional service. They encourage feedback so they can be better. Love the concept. We will be back.
Once again The Sage exceeds all expectations. We opted for the special Prix Fixe menu created by students Sara Schnackel and Andrew Whitaker. Each course was a minor masterpiece in presentation and taste. Plus there were numerous surprise bites between courses to delight the palate. (And the lamb dish was cooked to absolute perfection! something the best restaurants seem to struggle with)
As always, the student servers and chefs were fun to talk with.
Finally, when the check comes, expect to pay about 1/3 of what any other fine dining establishment would charge.
If you love innovative cuisine and want to have a bit of fun, you can't go wrong at The Sage.
This was lots of fun seeing what the culinary students produce. They are extremely talented and polite. Beautiful presentation with the food and unique flavors.
This is a fun experience to see how great Metro's Culinary Institute is. The students do an EXCELLENT job of creating and serving very unique menu items. The prices are reasonable for such high-end food. The ambiance is nice as well. Limited, but adequate wine list. I would highly recommend this as a unique experience!
What a great value and experience! Fun to see the students running it all.
Sage Student Bistro serves excellent food, very beautifully presented.
I lovely ambience. Food was delicious and well paired . Our group tasted all of the desserts and every single one was delicious!
Delightful. My friends and I have talked about Sage for quite some time, so we finally tried it tonight. We had a wonderful time. It was the first serving night of the quarter, so the staff was learning, but they did a grate job. Blake was our waiter. He was polite, and if he couldn't answer a question related to a menu item, he would find one for us. He was also a very interesting man. Retired from the Marines, (thanks for your service) he answered all of our questions related to the program, and how the kitchen works, and the curriculum, we were quite inquisitive. We really enjoyed the amuse buche, amuse-gueule, and the lagniappe, that's not the term they used, but it is mine. We are looking forward to our next visit. What a great opportunity for the students to practice their trade and for Omahans to experience a delicious fine service meal at a great price. We will be returning with a larger group soon. Thanks you Metro Tech Culinary Students!
Sage is a jewel in Omaha. The food was amazing and the servers were proud to serve it! What a fabulous event!
The food was spectacular. Our server was very nice. The room was a bit nipply . Could have turned up the heat a couple degrees. We were envious of the people that got seated next to the fireplace. We will visit again next spring and I will tell friends. You might want to add some tables?
The entire meal was 2.5 hours (since some of the items were slow in preparation) the server apologized for that.
Pea soup was cold and way, way too little - three of us had it and incorrectly thought when the soup was poured into the bowls that it was a garnish! Good start would have been to prewarm soup bowls.
Multigrain bread was amazing as one the beef.
Waitress was pleasant but seemed to be absent minded and forgot things.
Looking forward to returning
Excellent experience! Ben was great! Will definitely come again 👍
