Sage is a beautiful restaurant with great food and beverages. The night we were there they also had a singer who was very good. It was a special night out for my husband and me and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves from the Greek salad we shared through our entries and to the Italian cream cake for dessert. Everything we had was delicious. Bill was our waiter and he made us smile. Thanks, Sage and Bill!

This was our first time dining here. Overall it was pleasant experience.

There is a nice ambience to the place, dark, warm, cozy. Service was solid, and the food was nicely proportioned and tasty.

We did enjoy the mussels, that particular dish was truly the highlight for us.

The restaurant was full when we around 15 minutes early for our 8:15pm reservation. We went to the bar to get a drink and waiting about 20 minutes to get 2 glasses of wine and the check. The bartender seemed stressed and wasn't very friendly. Other people at the bar were getting frustrated as well, waiting for him. When we got seated, we didn't see our server for over 7 minutes. When he came over, he seemed like he really didn't want to be there and told us his name and his assistant, who we never saw. I was shocked by the description he used to describe his assistant. Giving us her name would have been enough. Our appetizers took at least 20 minutes and the server let us know that the kitchen was backed up, but he didn't know why. He said, "it's not like we're busy." Our entrees came and I had the Chilean Sea Bass which was delicious. The seafood broil did not look very appealing but, according to my date, tasted ok. I understand when restaurants are crowded and servers/bartenders/managers get flustered. But both our bartender and server were not professional AT ALL! I was very surprised and disappointed.

Valentine’s dinner gone bad! There are too many issues with this restaurant that I even feel like detailing. Way too long for food prep. Steaks not cooked as ordered. Bland for the price. Texas Roadhouse far better steak and prime rib for far less price. The GM did take care of our entire meal which Otherwise I would have walked out after we sent plates back for correction , but even being free really did not help the bad taste or long service. Waitress was friendly and apologetic but I’m not so sure she wasn’t part of the issue with some of the problems. Too loud. A restaurant with this price point should be better quality and overall experience. Unfortunately , won’t be back even after the appropriate gesture of having our entire meal comped.

Have eaten at Sage 3 - 4 times and enjoyed them all.. Went on Valentines Day and my experience was disappointing. Long-delay taking our order, food took over 25+ minutes to the table, salmon was slightly undercooked, never got t our bread, (were told they were cooking more).. Forgot beverage refill etc... Just wasn't a good time it appeared they were overwhelmed by the number of diners and were short on staff. That being said, I will go back ; my prior dining experiences were all good.

The rating was based on the kitchen telling servers they would not entertain special requests. In addition, went the food arrived my food was not hot and my wife's plate was missing part of the food.

Valentines Day is special
Being greeted and being told we could not substitute any thing even as simple as a baked potato for mashed potato is insulting.
" We cant interfere with the Kitchen
Then the feeling of being rushed.
I spent $100.00
We will never go back.

Everybody's food was delicious and well made. The steaks were cooked as ordered and flavors were very good. The service was excellent! If I had one issue, it was quite loud throughout the restaurant so if you are looking for nice, quiet and cozy, this is probably not the place.

This was by far one of the worst meals ever. Atmosphere and service was excellent. However, our appetizers came out at different times and one was cold. We both ordered ribeye with sides. Both our steaks were so tough you couldn't chew it. It was a waste of money..

This was my second time dining at this particular Sage and I loved it even more than the first time. Everything was perfect - from the hostess's professionalism to the server's attentiveness to the manager visiting our table to make sure we were being taken care of to our satisfaction. I will definitely be back again.

Went here for son’s birthday and atmosphere is nice and I could see how happy hour here could be fun. They had live jazz playing and it was a great setting for cocktails. Our waitress was nice and attentive. The dinner took a long time to cook even though they were not busy. The food came out lukewarm and had both chicken dishes, and they were not very good. My husband said the steak was good, but not great.

Waitress was wonderful! But the restaurant was out of scallops and the sea bass was off the menu! When we ordered surf and turf we received the combo with sirloin. We sent it back and received over cooked filet and shrimp instead of lobster. Apparently out of that as well! Also the restaurant was freezing! We asked to turn up the heat but it never got warm!

All started out well with a friendly waiter, drinks & appetizers. It went down hill from there. After a 30 wait, our entrees shows up skipping our salads completely. The waiter didn’t seem to even realize till we asked him where they were.
Food - mediocre especially for the price. My husband had ribs. Go anywhere but here for that.
Rest of the meal was lukewarm & just bleh.
I hate when I’m asked to pass plates & silverware to others at the table. This isn’t a boarding house.
Save your money. Go anywhere but here.

This was not a great experience for Christmas Eve dinner with the family. The music was way too loud, the service was very slow, the food was subpar, vegetables were lukewarm even cold, the steak was called and had to be sent back and when they brought it back out again it was folded on top of the potato that wasn’t even cut open, they were bones in the halibut, And when we ordered coffee after the meal, it was so weak it tasted like they waved coffee grounds over lukewarm water. Fortunately they comped the steak meal because it was so tough and chewy it wasn’t edible. But not a good experience especially for Christmas Eve dinner.

We were celebrating my 50th birthday and had always wanted to try Sage.
The service was slow to start with ... we had a reservation but arrived early so we sat in the bar area to wait. The manager had to find us a server to take our drink order, took 15 mins just to order. Then when we finally were seated, ordering took no time at all. However, we had to send our steaks back not once but twice because they were under cooked AND we had to ask for our side dishes.

The server tried to make up for the bad food service and she went beyond necessary in her attempt. We enjoyed her service but again the food was lacking in preparation.

Food was good. But not great. Had 6 appetizers for 7 people. All were good except bang bang shrimp. A half a. head of iceberg lettuce covered with blue cheese dressing and soggy shrimp on side. From the time we ordered are entrees it took a hour and ten minutes to get our food. The steak and fries were tasteless over a bed of overcooked spinach. Food was only Luke warm. Disappointing.

Had it not been that we were entertained talking with our guests we would have complained. It was nearly 15 minutes after seating before we were able to place our drink orders. Our waitress was training a new guy that I’m pretty sure had never worked in a restaurant before. The food was excellent and the servers were very friendly, they were just overwhelmed and seemed to disappear for 10-15 minutes at a time. The shrimp bang bang appetizer was great. Our salads came out about 2 minutes before the entrees. Again the food was great but the timing was off and they seemed a little short handed.

We are new to the area and saw Sage listed as romantic restaurant online. Had good ambiance and live music but food was not good and really over priced. Service not much better. Crab on salmon was questionable and cheese in stuffed chicken smelled like feet. We brought home leftovers thinking maybe we just weren't hungry enough that night but threw it out the next day due to horrible smell. Will not return.
