A unique food experience without atmosphere.

An interesting tapas and vast wine selection venue. The food is great. But avoid seating on the filthy chairs and sofas. Honestly, the operators of this Bistro have an opportunity of creating an amazing experience and they don't. There are many more other options in Canmore. This Bistro is the... read more

An interesting tapas and vast wine selection venue. The food is great. But avoid seating on the filthy chairs and sofas. Honestly, the operators of this Bistro have an opportunity of creating an amazing experience and they don't. There are many more other options in Canmore. This Bistro is the least of them.

We had a small wedding party come here this past weekend for an after-wedding celebration. Although the menu was a bit pricey, and the food portions were small for the price, it was top quality and delicious. We also received great service from Mandy and Robin.

We didn't have a reservation so ate upstairs in the lounge area but it was bright and not to loud with a nice atmosphere. My boyfriend and I shared plates including the mussels, brisket, perogies, beef tartar, and the smores cake for dessert and we loved all of it! We were very full, plates were a good size but probably... More

We happened on this place for breakfast by chance. We were asked if we had reservations and I guess from the look on my face the hostess said she would set up a table for us. The food was great and it is on the healthier side. They give you samples of their homemade jams and smoothies. They were great.... More

Great lunch in Canmore today.. Ordered a bottle of white wine and two lamb burgers! I don't know if it was the great goat feta cheese, the mellowing jazz playing softly on the speakers just quiet enough to listen to person your with, the tomato soup, the amazing view out the front window or all the above but it made...

I liked the location. This restaurant/ lounge is located in a log building. We went upstairs into the lounge/ bar. The food was a little too expensive (in my opinion) for the size of the servings. A hand full of olives was $8 or $9... Oh well, we had a good night out though!

Sage has the best food and wonderful service! Been there a few times and it's a must if you're in Canmore or Banff. Well worth the visit!

We ate upstairs in the lounge, as opposed to the formal dining room on the main floor. Excellent menu choices, a great wine selection and knowledgeable staff made it a pleasant experience both times we went. The only negative ??? They don't take AMEX.

We were in Canmore for a few days after Christmas. The five of us enjoyed fabulous service at Sage bistro. The hit of the night was the jock which was absolutely delicious. It's rare to get attentive and enjoyable servers as we had at this restaurant and we would recommend this place to anyone who likes fine dining.
