We were having an excellent meal until our server got bust and forgot us...waiting for wine...waiting for desert..waiting for the bill...waiting for someone to let us pay..Sadly, I am left with a negative impression because the entire evening suddenly went downhill.

We really enjoyed our evening at the Sage Bistro because it combined great and friendly service with delicious food. Setting is very relaxing and worth the price. The trout was excellent and the lamb shank hearty. Our favorite course was the dessert - no need to fight when you have three different types of creme brulee at once to share!... More

Went for a nice dinner with friends during our visit to Canmore. The service was very good and the food delicious. Started with the muscles which was excellent. Next, we had the Bouillabaisse, which was quite good. For dessert we had Death by Decadence and a berry parfait with angel food cake and lemon curd. Yummy. Nice place.

Loved the atmosphere / the service was excellent / menu choices were very good / presentation and taste were outstanding. In fact, we ate there three times - once upon our return from Jasper to Calgary.

On the drive from Drumheller to Banff, drove through Canmore for lunch. Hadn't picked any place in mind, but knew it was no to fast food or crappy chain restaurants. We saw a few places, but never turned the wheel, then huzzah - on the other side of the street was Sage. Looked good. Was good! Mom had a soup... More

On our way through Canmore this trip, we strategically planned it so we could manage to stop for dinner at Sage again in the upstairs Bistro wine bar. We sat on the balcony, with a gorgeous mountain view, ate beautiful food and had the best service possible from Danielle! If I lived in Canmore, this place would become a weekly... More

Our group had Lamb Burgers with Sweet Potato Fries and we all enjoyed them to the last crumb. The wait staff was excellent and the prices were quite reasonable.
