The team at Sage were amazing. We asked for the music to be turned down because initially it was a bit loud and some of our party were a bit deaf, and we wanted to have some rich conversation engaging the whole table. The Sage team were very obliging. The Tasting Menu was divine with incredibly well matched wines. The Sage team were very accommodating with alternative options to the various dishes on the set menu. Our hostess was exceptionally knowledgeable about the matching of the wine with the food flavours and how they complemented each other. The dishes came out at a comfortable pace. I look forward to another decadent Saturday long lunch at Sage soon.
One of the best for a reason. Outstanding food and drinks and great service from all, especially our server Owen!
Very disappointing. Having visited this restaurant on a few occasions, our expectations were high. The menu was not balanced. Exuberant use of vinegar ruined the chance of other flavours to shine. Has the chef changed? Great service.
My daughter and I were treated exceptionally well, the service was great as was the very inventive food and wine. We left the restaurant feeling we had experienced a new way of food. During our 3 course menu we were offered small delicate tryouts.
We ended the lunch with a delicious honey packed dessert. They also brought it a small chocolate cake beautifully iced adorned with a lit sparkler in celebration of my “special “daughter. Thank you Sage I will be back.
Lovely meal. Big thank you to Owen who provided wonderful service throughout. Great advice on the wine pairings too!!
Sage was a wonderful dining experience and our waiter Owen provided excellent service. The food was fantastic.
We were celebrating our anniversary and chose Sage because we wanted something a bit special. We’ve dined there before and always enjoyed the food and the service.
We weren’t disappointed this time. The menu was very creative and the service was of the usual high standard. Would certainly recommend Sage.
It has nice cocktails and friendly staff. Food can be better
We always enjoy going to Sage. The dining experience is always expectational. But in is particular occasion… they raised the bar even higher. The staff were super friendly and accommodating on each interaction.
When asked if it was a special occasion at the start of our night, I mentioned that we were making good on a birthday voucher for my wife, which she received several months ago.
to our surprise my wife was delivered a surprise birthday cake with an accompanying song at the nights end. The cake was far from out of place. It shared the same beautiful details that each course received. and was kindly packaged up so we could share the joy with our children at home.
Excellent food, very friendly and helpful staff. Although the paired drinks came out after the said tasting plate but overall a great dining experience.
This was our third time enjoying the Vegan Degustation 5 course meal. The food is absolutely superb and thanks to our wonderful waiter Owen we also got to meet the Chef and was able to thank him for the marvellous creations that they put before us.
Thank you Owen and team for yet another fantastic meal and evening. Wr will be back again soon
every course divine.
every platye amazing
service just wonderful and so friendly
Our waitress Tia was particularly sensational. Made it a memorable event. Thank you Tia!!
Great night. Food was beautiful and Owen, our waiter took great care of us. It was a little cool next to the window, but other than that superb.
Very friendly and knowledgeable staff, interesting and delicious flavour combinations, nice environment, beautifully matched wines.
We had a lovely dining experience with lots of interesting food. Our waitress was outstanding. The only reason we didn’t tip was that the food was he most expensive we’ve ever paid for. But given the Covid restrictions I’m okay with that and would still recommend the experience for a special occasion.
Terrific well balanced food in an intimate setting. Wonderful service by an informed and unobtrusive team.
We enjoyed the 5 course degustation menu and it was a great way to sample some foods we wouldn’t normally order.
One of the best restaurants in Canberra, highly recommended!
Always an excellent dining experience in every sense
Great……………………………………………………………………………………….. it’s stupid if you want me to provide feedback then make me write min 50 characters to submit.
I won’t do this shrink!!
The staff were attentive and the wine pairing was great with the description of the wine and why it was chosen
An absolutely beautiful setting and warm. The meal had many little surprise courses.
Recommend Sage. We found no fault. The venue is quiet with nice background music. Ella, our main wait staff was professional, friendly as were the other staff. The food was outstanding. The courses were adequately spaced and we didn’t feel rushed.
Really lovely food , lovely wait staff not intrusive, very friendly and knowledgeable about wine.
Thanks especially to Ella the young lady who made us all feel special.
Great place to have a nice romantic dinner. The service is outstanding and the food is delicious. Fine dining at its best.
A lovely restaurant or a fancy date night dinner. We recommend pairing wines with your meal
A fantastic restaurant with lovely staff and delicious food! A true dining experience.
Superbly presented food snd every mouthful was delicious. The service was also attentive and professional. Lovely to have an extensive wine list by the glass as I am a solo diner. I booked again. A very special place, understated and relaxed yet top class food and service
Excellent, interesting food. Couldn't fault food or service, only criticism would be a little cool for a cold night in Canberra.
First time visiting Sage. Great food and service. Well designed and flavored menu. Customized drinks for the little ones, great to hear from those in the kitchen telling us what they had prepared for us. 5 dishes gets you going very well served home and with a multi-flavor experience. Very nice space between tables so that we felt private to have our own small party of 4 (birthday of my now teenage son). Thea was super attentive on all our needs, thank you all!
Loved it! So worth the cost. It was fine dining without the snotty atmosphere. An incredible experience! They catered to complex dietary requirements with ease. They really outdid themselves with food and the drink pairings. We had the non-alcoholic pairings and they were absolutely divine and perfect pairings! Bethany was our waitress and she went above and beyond. Perfect for a birthday or celebration.
Food service and wine were excellent. Owen our waiter was amazing. It was our second time back to Sage and will keep coming back. The flavours of the food and the paired wines were exceptional. Well done to the chefs at Sage and your staff. Had a great night.
Food was best I have had in Canberra!
Owen was our waiter and he was great!
Exceptional food and knowledgeable, pleasant wait staff.Great and unusual combinations of flavors
I will keep it short, sharp and sweet. Sage is the epitome of excellence. Our waitress Ella is from another planet and our barman Cooper was dropping cocktails like its hot! Aynsle's knowledge of cocktails left my head spinning. I will certainly be back.
Great new menu. Perfect food. 3 course lunch was all we could have eaten
I was a bit cold where I we were sitting, not far from entrance so expected when door opens and closes. It was easy to hear people next to us, but not really noisy and atmosphere pleasant.
Outrageously good - a spanking new menu that manages the impossible - by easily exceeding all of our past five star experiences. My partner summed it up: the best meal he has ever had at Sage (and that is saying something). Balanced, nuanced flavour bombs, from first plate to last. Coupled with superior service from classy, professional wait staff. Can’t wait to get back, and do it all again. Standouts are the little Gorgonzola sticks, feisty bread, charred broccolini, and that beef! Oh, and the feijoa ice cream sandwiches. The best possible way to start the weekend. Exceptional all round.
It's always a pleasure dining at sage in particular the last two times we have been we have had Bethany as our server and she has always made us feel welcome, comfortable and happy.
Amazing food everytime I go. Staff are always friendly with a great mix of personality. Will be back to try the new menu, 100% recommend.
Taste and Test is a special dining experience. You give written feedback on an experimental set of menu items. Always fun and food though experimental is always top quality. Recommend the wine pairing too. Lots of thought has gone into the selections. Takes time but not too long - under 2 hours. Each dish is small but perfectly formed and at the end you are satisfied but you've had a wide range of tastes.
