In a town filled with great restaurants we keep coming back to the wine lounge at Sage (upstairs!). We've been here at least a dozen times now and have never had even a single disappointing dish. The wine list is huge with something for everyone. The atmosphere is fun with great music always in the background. I am forever Shazaming... More

I should confess that we went to Sage last night as choice #3, because it doesn't have the 'cool' factor of Crazyweed or the 'brilliant food' rep of Trough. Yet, although those two restaurants do not consistently deliver, Sage does. We often go there, and sometimes it's our first choice, and we have never had a bad or disappointing meal... More

Different menus upstairs and down. The Onion Souo was good and we enjoyed our Steak Frites with Side Steak Vegetables, all at a reasonable price

Fun and friendly staff providing excellent service. Good drinks but we didn't eat there so can't comment on the food. Nice ambiance and floor plan lay out.

My wife & I had a GC at Sage so we splurged. We sat upstairs so we could sample a number of dishes. (We love to try food.) Certainly the food was on the expensive end, especially for the portion size, but we had more than enough food. (Spent $100 including tax and a healthy tip without alcohol since we... More

Smart casual, good ambience, I liked the choice between shared group menus upstairs and individual serving menus downstairs. Started with a dozen tasty, fresh, delicious, PEI mussels and a superb soup of the day. Main courses of lamb shank and steelhead trout. Lamb was falling off the bone but a bit dry and a little bitter, and as we are... More

Our waitress was amazing and we tried to hijacker and take her with us to our yoga class later that evening lol. The tapas where very flavourful and again our waitress was fabulous helping us to choose wines.... More

Recently went to Canmore with family to show my mum who was visiting some of the Canadian Rockies. This restaurant had good write-ups so we decided to give it a try. Overall we were quite impressed by the food and between the five of us we sampled a fair cross-section of the menu. The food was well cooked, well presented... More

Looking for a light meal, we ate at the upstairs wine bar and it was a great meal. Very good selection of small plates, meats and cheeses. Good wine selection, tried a couple different wines over the course of the meal (they do have a unique system that lets you try high end wines in very small amounts, I didn't... More
