i work nearby further down Burwood Rd and have often walked past during the day, looked in eh window at the menu (not open for lunch) and wondered about Sageleaf. Finally went last night with girlfriends and my expectations were not disappointed! The restaurant is part of one of the old shops that line Burwood road, east of Auburn Road... More

The Sageleaf is a small restaurant - one of many established in the old shops along a usually busy street in Hawthorn East. With a simple, but pleasant decor, we found it cosy and comfortable. Where the Sageleaf excels is the food. Across our party of 6, we had a variety of entrees, mains and deserts - all excellent. Although... More

Very boutique restaurant. Quality and freshness of food is first class. Service is also very good. A place I would go back too.

This restaurant in Hawthorn East some 10 kilometres from the Melbourne CBD is frequented by Camberwell/Hawthorn residents, rather than international travelers. With some 20 years experience working at well-known restaurants in London and Melbourne, the chef is now running his own restaurant. The food was excellent and not overpriced. The staff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive. All this... More

Was a bit disappointed with this small bistro after hearing a number of people speak about the place. Firstly the food is good and worth the prices charged but it lacks "something" to make it "great" I feel that presentation is a major downfall and needs to be looked at by the Chef. Entree, Mains and desserts were pleasant but... More

We went to Sageleaf as a part of a group. Out in Hawthorn on a very ordinary stretch of road, this little bistro serves up a brief menu of great character & spread of ingredients. Beetroot salad with goats cheese croquettes, duck confit were memorable. BYO option. And great value. Food only for two about $140.

Completely unexpected - high quality food and presentation- below $30 for many courses. it is very high quality at a very very reasonable price . BYO is Ok - I think around $10 a bottle , One of the best food restaurants in hawthorn/camberwell.
