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.
Outstanding experience. Service was friendly and welcoming. Absolutely divine experience. We went for lunch and sat in the sun. Highly recommend 😊
The food, as with the service, was top notch. We’ll certainly be coming back. Absolutely lovely.
This would be our 4th time at Sage. We had their tasting menu for $105 per person. We shared a cocktail and wine pairing between four of us. It is reliably incredible food, the service was excellent: friendly, relaxed and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Sage.
We were a little disappointed with the food this time. Not as good as we have experienced on past occassions.
The food and wine was divine! The taste & test was an interactive and immersive environment and experience. There were fun & flavourful fusions and was nice to see some natives in the dishes! Finally, the service was friendly and seamless, shout-out to Ella :-) 11/10 overall, not over-rated at all, would recommend!
Exquisite fine dining, excellent service, best waiter in town Owen, great courses snd we were allowed our own choice of wine as it is also a BYO, we were inside this tine snd we thoroughly enjoyed it again!
Fabulous Taste and test option. We love the enclosed verandah seating. Awesome service as always.
The Sage Restaurant is normally a terrific restaurant, but the taste and test menu that we had was really not great. There were 5 dishes, 1 was great, 1 was average, 1 was below average and 2 were utter garbage.
It upset me that the chef of such a nice establishment would even serve food that was so bad. It isn't even like you could miss it and think that maybe the dish was slightly off. Two of the dishes were so awful that I was a chef I would expect to be fired; especially when the customers are paying around the $100 per head.
My TL:DR review, steer clear of the taste and test menu, it is a utter waste of money. A standard night for the degustation menu is worth a visit. The atmosphere is cosy and quite.
We participated in the taste and test event and tried some possible new dishes. It was fun and delicious.
Awesome, creative modern Australian at its best! Have been here twice now and will definitely be back. Food is exciting, fresh, and seasonal and just superbly executed. Service and atmosphere is equally as impressive. Bar tender has a real flair for crafting interesting and delicious mocktails. Do yourself a favour and make a booking!
It was an excellent experience. We have been to sage many times and will continue to go back
Food is amazing, great ambiance and value for money.
Taste tests are a treat! Wonderful opportunity to shape the menu.
So much fun tasting and reviewing the new dishes. Great with new pairing as well.
A lovely meal! Weekday lunch so only 2 other couples in the restaurant.
Fab night at Sage. Generous portions, delicious food and outstanding service all made for a great evening.
Great food and set menu; recommend cocktails to start. Service was attentive and friendly
Always a pleasure to dine at Sage.
Love the food, the atmosphere and the staff
I found the taste and test menu disappointing when compared to previous experiences. However, I think that many of the dishes could be improved with minor changes.
Sage used to be our restaurant of choice for special occasions so I am hoping that we will enjoy the food as much as the excellent service on our next visit. The BYO option for wine also makes this restaurant appealing.
Disappointing dishes: none was remarkable and the material could not have cost more than $10. It was not fine dining.
