Good service contrary to other reviews, but found dining room food of average quality and overpriced on that point. Wouldn't return on this alone. We could go out twice to our favorite Jasper restaurant for what we paid here. Did have some appies upstairs in the afternoon, and liked what was offered there and it's a bit brighter and more...

Sage Bistro at 1712 Bow Valley Trail is a casual restaurant serving breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. It’s an indoor restaurant and not noisy. They have an upstairs wine lounge and tapas restaurant and some patio dining. Nice contemporary presentations, not fancy, good portions, good service and reasonable prices. My wife and I had dinner at the Sage Bistro and... More

Absolutely the best lunch ever! Excellent service and exquisite food - left totally satisfied. Pricey by our lunch standards but not for this area. We even went for dessert and had the best carrot cake either of us had ever tasted - the pineapple made it so moist.

My boyfriend and I decided to try the sage bistro for the first time. As locals we expected to be welcomed with a warm smile, which we were starting the night of great. Once sat at our table which was placed next to big bay windows with dead flies and poor lighting. Our server seemed to be quite busy with... More

Although the lounge menu was not what I expected the food was good. The ambiance though is what makes this restaurant very good.

This was our 4th visit to Sage and it never disappoints. Excellent food, service and ambience. We ate here with Friends on a Tuesday evening and upstairs was quiet. Our server was attentive, friendly and very helpful. We all chose a main each and the charcuterie platter for 4 to share, accompanied by a lovely bottle of Valpolicella Ripasso. An... More

My husband and stopped in here for lunch on a Sunday afternoon and got an amazing surprise. The Sage Bistro and Wine Lounge has some of the best homemade jams ever (I make pretty good jam myself). The wait staff brought out 2 different jams for my husband's meal, so I snagged a taste. Could've just ate the jam for... More

I have now tried the upstairs bistro for dinner, and the patio for lunch. Both were great, and very different experiences! I'm shocked Sage isn't in the top 5 restaurants in Canmore! If you're going with a group you must try sharing the cheese and charcuterie selection upstairs. What an experience! For lunch I had the beef burger with sweet... More

Typically, when passing through Canmore, I stop for dinner at Crazyweed, but this last trip, decided to make a change and try Sage. I had guests with me from Scotland and Australia. We were delighted with dinner, the shared dishes, the atmosphere, and the competent service made the experience most enjoyable. I highly recommend this restaurant and suspect it will... More
