We stopped in for lunch on our way back to Calgary and got a table on the patio. The restaurant was very quiet on a Thursday before the long weekend and the patio was great, nice views of the surrounding mountains and the tables were set apart so you were not crowded in. The food was very good. Good-sized portions... More

The food at Sage was excellent!! It was a pasta dish with chicken, mushrooms, and tomatoes in a pesto cream sauce..FABULOUS!! There was no skimping on the chicken either! It was a little pricey, but worth the extra $$$! We were a little annoyed that another table did not see fit to control the behavior of their daughter who persisted... More

Terrible, terrible, terrible service here. Went with the kids, and the waitress was clearly irritated we interrupted her quiet evening. It was more than neglectful, it was openly hostile. I did complain to another server, who was clearly frustrated with her co-worker, but the damage was done. Won't go back ever, as the food was mediocre at best anyway.

Dined upstairs in the lounge off of the charcuterie menu. Wow. This is simply amazing. Paired with a flight of wines. There are many options to choose from. Very relaxed atmosphere. I recommend the entire cheese and meat charcuterie menu. Not a miss! Delicious!

We dined with them tonight after spending all day on the road sightseeing & facing huge crowds. It was a welcome respite from the day. Our server was excellent, the food was delicious & priced appropriately & the atmosphere was relaxed. So glad we chose this spot!!

Sage is a regular breakfast stop for us when we visit Canmore. Very tasty! Good portions. Yummy jams. Lots of different types of tea. Thumbs up.

My wife and daughter discovered this place a number of years ago and at first I thought it might be a "girlie" place. My daughter is a vegetarian and I like meat. The Sage exceeded my expectations a couple of years ago when I was in Canmore over the Thanksgiving Holiday. And every time I have been there since I... More

Our family had two meals here. We did lunch one day and dinner the next. The food was delicious. The menu has a great deal of variety and some quite unique choices. They have an extensive wine selection. The atmosphere is casual and friendly. Very enjoyable experience.
