We went there for my birthday dinner. A little difficult to find. They have a small outdoor seating area for when the weather is warm.

I had dinner here with 8 others about a month or so ago. The menu was pricey, the food good but we all left hungry and definitely will not go back to pay those prices for the little amount of food. We left ther and went to White Castles for a few sliders.

Gourmet....interesting....well presented. The ambience was a little weak. One of the best places to eat in Chesterton and Porter County.

had a business lunch there the other day and were impressed. Decided to come back for dinner, which we just recently did. What a nice surprise this little restaurant is! Very nice menu, kind of upscale dining for the budget wallet, great atmosphere, great chef and apparently on Friday nights they have live music. Definitely going back more often from... More

This is a very unique restaurant where the chef shares his passion for local, American food and wine with his guests. Be warned, that it is expensive, but the personal care and unique presentations of good locally grown food make dining a pleasure.

On a trip between Chicago and South Bend, Chesterton is about the halfway point. We were searching for a place for a nice dinner rather than stopping at one of the chain or burger/pizza type places. This was really a find in terms of food. Note that you shouldn't expect to make a quick stop- this is a leisurely and... More

Cozy restaurant with diverse selections. Main courses do not include salads and everything is on the high side for prices. Some problems with attentive wait staff but apologies were given even though not a particularly busy evening. We decided on salads & individual pizzas. The salads were outstanding & the pizzas were good although the amount of sausage was rather... More

I have been to Sage a number of times. I love the sage & cucumber martini and between the menu & specials, always have an excellent meal! Joe, the owner, is omnipresent and a great host!

Went here for our anniversary. Nice atmosphere, and very pleasant staff. Our meal was hit and miss. The good: arancini for the appetizer, nice bottle of wine at a reasonable price (Sage Pino Grigio), the roasted pistachio gelato and espresso for dessert. The misses: beet salad (only three small slivers of beet), salmon dinner (well cooked, but very pale and... More

This restaurant is a nice little surprise! Seemingly upscale, but our family of four was reassured that we weren't dressed too casually for them. The food was delicious, creative, and unique. And perhaps even better than the exquisite menu, our service was remarkable. Everyone was genuinely friendly--in a professional way, not a sickeningly sweet way. The only down side for... More
