Loved the atmosphere / the service was excellent / menu choices were very good / presentation and taste were outstanding. In fact, we ate there three times - once upon our return from Jasper to Calgary.

On the drive from Drumheller to Banff, drove through Canmore for lunch. Hadn't picked any place in mind, but knew it was no to fast food or crappy chain restaurants. We saw a few places, but never turned the wheel, then huzzah - on the other side of the street was Sage. Looked good. Was good! Mom had a soup... More

On our way through Canmore this trip, we strategically planned it so we could manage to stop for dinner at Sage again in the upstairs Bistro wine bar. We sat on the balcony, with a gorgeous mountain view, ate beautiful food and had the best service possible from Danielle! If I lived in Canmore, this place would become a weekly... More

Our group had Lamb Burgers with Sweet Potato Fries and we all enjoyed them to the last crumb. The wait staff was excellent and the prices were quite reasonable.

This restaurant had nice food we had a really good steak. The waitress was helpful and the atmosphere nice, and given certain conditions I would go again. The problem is it just lacked that little extra to make it excellent. I did enjoy the meal and considered it reasonable value, so please do not be put off by this review,... More

Service was very slow even though we were told we only had until a certain time to eat because there was a reservation for our table right after us. Even though we were later than the indicated hour, nobody showed up for our table, and there were plenty of empty tables. the food was average, and we were disappointed in... More

The setting is an old log building with three dining areas. We sat in the main dining area which had great views. The food was excellent, with a wide selection of wines. The service was great but it took awhile to get our food. The salmon was to die for and the presentation was wonderful. When in Canmore make sure... More

Stopped by to check out the restaurant. Was expecting it to be super ritzy and stuffy, and was pleasantly surprised it was classy but casual during lunch. The waitresses were very helpful and attentive. Fries were good. The steak sandwich was 10/10. Perfect cut, perfectly prepared. Todd (the cook and owner) outdone himself and I highly recommend going.
