This restaurant was recommended by Guy on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. So we figured we'd give it a try and we were glad we did--it was the best meal we've had during our stay in NYC! The meal consisted of split-half chicken with potato puree and steak with grilled potatoes and string beans. The steak and grilled potatoes were fantastic!... More

Went here for a Sunday brunch with 3 friends during my 30th birthday weekend in NYC after seeing the Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives episode they were featured on. I’m a huge fan of bacon and cheese and this place was a match made in heaven. 2 of us arrived shortly before 11 and waited about 10 minutes for a table... More

The exterior of the hidden gem is both rustic and inviting with a chalkboard sign boasting "We got loads of Bacon! AND all the other brunch essentials!" Seriously, I didn't have to keep reading, the sign had me had "loads of bacon!" I kept reading anyway and I was intrigued by the unlimited mimosas and Bloody Mary's. The "All You... More

This restaurant was featured in a popular tv food show......in 2010 and the word of mouth brought me and my friends to try SGS for the first time yesterday for dinner. The food was amazing and the portion of the small plates are so abundant that they could be easily be considered main entrée. What I particularly love about this... More

Sage was a delightful experience for us in December and we were looking forward the a three peat this visit. No such luck. While the food was really good, the service was a great disappointment. We sat at the bar waiting for our table and wanted to order a drink...no one served us there (party of 6!). Once at the... More

If you want to experience a rustic, homestyle atmosphere and a wonderful meal, give Sage General Store a try. The food is wonderful and it's been featured on Guy Fieri's Food Network show. It's also had rave reviews in several magazines. And the great reviews are all correct. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal at Sage. The service was very attentive... More

Guy Fieri from Triple D Food Networks had eaten at this place. That's how I knew about this restaurant. Every time Guy shows up in New York, I would attempt to try the restaurant out myself. I usually order the French toast and once in a while with bacon depending on my mood. You have to try out their raspberry... More

I tried this restaurant with a friend on a Saturday afternoon and the place was jam packed. To avoid the wait for a table we sat at the counter but either way the seating is pretty tight because the place is pretty small. To start I had tea which thankfully was not the typical cheap Lipton brand. For my entree... More

I live in LIC but heard about this place from my Dad living in NC who saw it featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. He kept telling me, "it only seats 14 people, so I don't know if you can get in." I wasn't worried and headed over to find fantastic food in a homey, general store feeling cafe/diner/restaurant. There's... More

We went to this place after reading some reviews. I still don't understand how it has almost 5 stars. First of all, we needed a high chair, they brought a 1900s vintage chair that doesn't meet the security standards, it was a bit bouncy, and there were no straps or nothing to make sure the kid won't fall. The menu... More
