Inventive vegan menu that I enjoy even though I am not vegan. The menu changes seasonally and my favorite dishes are usually in the entree category--the wraps, burgers and faux crab cakes are very good--I would skip the salads as they aren't very special. The smoothies are fantastic--the Green Machine is my favorite (made with frozen fruits, spirolina--no sugar--so good!... More

4 of us (2 couples) went here at midday and had an excellent experience. We're all pretty much vegetarian and my wife needs gluten-free food because she has celiac. The food was outstanding (except the gluten-free carrot cake was a bit dry). The service also was excellent. We would be happy to go there again and would recommend it to... More

When we went vegan- this was a staple. Haven't been back since getting back on meat wagon. I need more options from a restaurant these days. Still, it's a standout in it's niche.

Service and food was wonderful. We had a party of four, two vegetarians and two carnivores, and we all found sufficient food that tasted incredible. The Server was friendly and attentive. When we entered, one of the patrons who was leaving told us how good it was and recommended the chili. We all had chili along with appetizers, dessert and... More

I think what saved my review was the staff. The place was a bustle when we arrived and the hostess apologized for being short on servers that night. We never felt the lack. All were attentive and helpful. We didn't know before hand that it was a vegie/vegan establishment. I was dubious upon learning, despite being a vegetarians ourselves. We... More

Great flavorful food, vibrant atmosphere, engaging staff. Terrific experience worth the drive again and again. Please open a second place in the Kentlands.

To be honest, we had a poor service experience at Great Sage awhile back. And the food we ordered at that time was disappointing. We decided to give it another try, though, because we were in the mood for vegetarian and my wife needs to be gluten-free, which they are good at. This time, our soup and other food were... More

I enjoyed my first time at this lovely restaurant so much, that I even bought another "chicken" (vegan) Pot Pie to have the next day for dinner. Everything single thing was just the best - can't wait to go back.

So nice to find a very nice vegan restaurant! Our food was great. Even though we all came from about an hour or so away, we really enjoyed our visit and our food! The service was good and I'd highly recommend going. The famous dip (spinach or artichoke?) was amazing with the lightly toasted bruschetta-like bread. The banana walnut smoothy... More

I've eaten at Great Sage for many years, and some years it is better than others. This is the time to go! The menu has changed, they offer some wonderful surprises. Last night, I had the pumpkin burger, which was amazing! It was served with some roasted sweet potatoes, that were delicious. I shared a Lava Cake with 3 people,... More
