Went upstairs and tried the tapas-style offerings. Everything we tried was excellent. Service was good and the space pleasant, with mountain views. Freight trains roll by regularly just outside, but (with the windows closed on a unseasonably chilly day) they were not loud enough to disturb us. My only quibble is the generic/robotic pseudo-cool music similar to what is often... More

We went with 9 adults and 8 children. They were able to seat us at two large tables. They brought out appies for the kids right away as well as getting the kids meals out right away. I had the salad that was on special made from all local ingredients which was fantastic. Our server was fantastic dealing with both... More

We have visited the Sage Bistro several times over the years but this visit provided some very bad food, an excellent soup and a server very good at rolling her eyes. We shared a cup of carrot and coconut curry soup that was wonderful. Then my husband was served a lamb burger that was burned and dry. I ordered the... More

Nice, spacious, dining layout including the outside patio dining area. The staff was knowledgable of the wine particulars which made selection much easier since they have a vast selection to choose from, and reasonably priced. The staff was very accommodating and allowed me to select from the dinner menu as they were still within the lunch hours, but within ~45... More

This was our first meal in Canada after long flight from UK. It was 200 yard walk from accommodation and chosen for that reason. The wine..Chile chardonnay.. was lovely. The food arrived within 5 mins of the order and was disappointing. Barely warm and lacking in taste.

if you like to share small plates and your find yourself in Canmore, this is your place! We three adults shared several portions of tasty tapas and had a delightful early evening meal upstairs in the wine bar after a day of sightseeing. The short ribs and duck rilettes were our favourites, but we left nothing behind on the plates... More

My mom and dad took me and my 1 year old son to lunch at Sage Bistro, and we were all disappointed in both the service and the food. I understand that a baby in a restaurant can be an annoyance but a good server doesn't make you feel badly about bringing him along. The waitress dumped a high chair... More
