 (Las Vegas)·Dined 2 days ago

The food ranged from just OK to very good. The service was just a little off and the DJ in the bar made the entire place LOUD.

It's charging higher prices, but there's just something's not right. Torn "leather" on the benches, so so service etc.

I probably would not return.

Some friends called around 5:30 pm wanted us to go to dinner with them. We used Open Table to find a restaurant. All were booked until 7:30/8. Sage had space at 6:30 so off we went. Good decision! Food was excellent as was the service. Real nice pour of glass of wine to boot. Definitely will go back.

I have patronage Sage on other occasions for after work, hanging out in the bar area to enjoy the Tapas Menu, or on a date and just coming by to listen to a very good jazz saxophonist. Today I reserved a table for 4 for a birthday party. This was the 1st time for my 3 guests and the 1st time I enjoyed the dinning area. Everyone was impressed with Sage. 2 people I was there with are vegetarians and the menu did not have items for them. However, the waiter was very helpful as my guest pretty much created a dish for what was on the menu. The chef I was told was happy to create dishes for anyone and he did. My guest said the food was exceptional. The staff was professional and kind and the prices reasonable. My guests thanked me for introducing them to Sage and can’t wait to enjoy Sage again.

The service, décor and food here was excellent. IT was dampened a bit by the volume of the live music. At times it was hard to have a normal conversation because of the music.

As for dinner I ordered a steak entrée which came out cold and overdone. Was sent back and brought a new one that was amazing. However, got my bill was charged for 2 entrees! Ask waiter to correct it but he said the manager on duty would not. So I waited 30mins to speak to the manager whom never showed. Finally I paid and left. They lost a loyal customer which is a shame b/c I really liked this place.

Pls Note: My waiter was amazing this was not his fault.

My husband went there for lunch and said the service was really bad but we were at a happy hour near there so we decided to try dinner...the service was really slow and when we got our food mine was completely wrong, I got my salad with my meal and I substituted sides but they brought me the wrong sides then they charged me for extra sides not as substitution. The food was good but it wasn't what I ordered, I was ordering low carb and I ended up picking through food as to not get rice. They charged us for extra sides which made our meal $130.00. What?!?! Very disappointed. I never write reviews so this should speak volumes....

I've eaten at the Alpharetta location several times. Great service, food and atmosphere. THIS WAS NOT THE CASE @ THE PERIMETER LOCATION!! From the minute we entered, the service was terrible, it was noisy (can't even talk noisy!), and I've had better food at the Waffle House. $42 dollar "Surf-n-Turf" was a thin, fatty steak with, what I think, was supposed to be shrimp with crabmeat...side salad was additional $7....outrageous drink prices!!! This is NOT a fine dining restaurant, but BELIEVE ME, their prices are...
Unless you're looking for a loud, expensive, "club" environment, don't bother.....

Great food. Pricier than expected given its budget ratings on the Internet. Understandably, given the quality of the food. Went in with a budget in mind and well exceeded it. The proprietor was no doubt pleased but I think it is a risky long term strategy on their part.

Pros- We made reservations and was seated immediately.
Con- It took our waiter forever to come to our table
Pro- The ambiance was nice
Con-It was really loud
The general manager came over and took chairs from our table and did not acknowledge us at all. When my husband addressed this issue, instead of listening to understand he corrected him about "they don't have customers they have guest."
I will never return to this particular location, but I will try another location.

Pretty generic menu, but not generic GOOD like some of the other similar places around. It is a high-ish end fern bar with nice decor. Just like many other places in that market segment.

Service was excellent, it was the "everything else" that didn't impress. The food was mall quality at fine dining prices and nothing was memorable.

Good food, great atmosphere, despite the dark lighting. We enjoyed Calamari (DELICIOUS) & Lettuce Wraps as appetizers, Lamb chops (DELIGHTFUL) and grilled salmon with spinach instead of haricot verts (TASTY) for dinner. One of our party had some dietary constraints, and it took the "team" a couple of tries to get his order right. For the trouble, one of the managers offered one free dessert to the table - Salted Caramel Cake. It was good too! We also enjoyed the bread that came after appetizers, but just prior to the meal. The olive oil/balsamic glaze mixture for dipping was great, but the waitress took our plates, so it was awkward and messy trying to eat the bread with no plates. Lastly, we enjoyed the live vocal selections from a really great musician with his guitar. I can't remember his name, but he was great!

Although we made reservations for 9:15pm; we had to wait an additional 30 minutes. The hostess was not friendly and considerate of those waiting with reservations. She never apologized for the wait and treated us if we were an inconvenience. She worked the desk both Friday and Saturday night with the same attitude. We thought the attitude came from us not having reservations so we made sure to make it for Saturday. Probably need to find her a position from the front desk.

I had made a reservation for 7.15 but we weren't seated until 7.40. Even though the table we were taken to had been ready since we walked in the door, the hostess kept telling us it would take a couple of minutes to get our table ready. Another party of 2 people who didn't have reservations got a table before we did. As it was a Saturday night, there were several parties taking place, so the place was extremely noisy. Once we were seated, the service was good but the food was only average. I would certainly not go there again, given all the other restaurant choices in the area.

I took a client to lunch at Sage yesterday. The service was attentive; the food was excellent; and the restaurant was quiet enough to easily engage in quiet business conversation. And, I thought the meal prices were quite reasonable. I had the goat cheese chicken, and it was delicious.

Only 2 of 5 meals in our party were properly cooked. The two steak frites were perfectly cooked (medium). My wife’s rack of lamb was medium well to well done (supposed to be medium). My sons burger was well done (supposed to be medium). My Woodfire filet was beyond well done (supposed to be medium). I sent it back and the next one came back very rare (basically just seared). The whole process took so long I gave up and told them to forget my meal. Waiter was very nice and apologetic. Manager was a bit gruff. They didn’t charge me for my meal since I cancelled it, but didn’t offer any other compensation (glass of wine, dessert, etc). Don’t think I will return anytime soon.

I feel bad as I write this review. I believe everyone wanted to make our dining experience a good one. However, this was close, if not the worst dining experience I have ever had at a restaurant.

As we were seated, we sat in horror as a light bulb was changed in fixture above our table complete with ladder and staff. Our drinks were served watery and when we brought this to the waiters attention, instead of them being remade, shots of liquor were brought to the table so we could mix our own. The shared appetizer was bland and taste less as were the different fishes ordered with the main course. In fairness, the waiter brought our entree displeasure to the attention of management who credited the worst meal, but this did little to salvage the evening. The staff was friendly, but we felt rushed throughout the dining experience as entrees were served before the appetizer had been consumed. Additionally, it seemed to be training night as one staff member followed another and the coordination among the two was at best awkward. Everything seemed rushed from beginning to end. There is little that can be positively stated about our dining experience. I guess the best I can say is that we are aware and will not be returning anytime soon.

Overall the experience was just okay. The chicken fettuccine was to die for and the strawberry lemon drop the best I ever had. I loved the ambiance of the restaurant. The server Nadia was very petty and unprofessional. She took 20 minutes before she took our order. She did not come to refill drinks. Her experience but a very bad taste in my month. Even the general manager tried to make it better, the damage was already done. The server whom she was replaced with (guy whose name starts with D) was phenomenal. He made sure our drinks were refilled. He took the time to explain things on the dessert menu and was very charming and professional. Speaking of dessert, the crumb cake was delicious. I will visit again and recommend friends, but I never want her as my server.

The service was good but the food leaves a lot to be desired. The food looks appetizing and the presentation is wonderful; however, when you take a bite you realize that this food was cooked and prepared by blah chefs. The food is bland (no seasoning) and the food was cold. It’s not the cheapest meal either. This is my second time trying them. I was extremely disappointed the first time at the Alpharetta location. The food was so bad and so unfresh that I left a message for the chef that they literally ruined my parents anniversary. Years later, I decided to give it another try but this time in Perimeter. The food was just a little better than the Alpharetta location but still the same. This is my last time at thIs restaurant. The food needs to be redone by some people who know how to season and cook farm to table food.
