Excellent food and service. The taquitos appetizer was delicious. The duck breast was perfectly prepared and the Alaskan halibut was excellent. The cocktails were also excellent, especially the Wild Sage.

Wide selection of pacific northwest fare. Coho salmon with a mind-blowing sauce. The pea salad was creative. Decent wine list with many Pinot choices. If you are a self described "foodie" first: stop that, then just enjoy a great meal. Good cocktail selection as well. Walking distance to theatres, knitting factory etc.

This is our go to restaurant when we go downtown and we have eaten here many times. They have a nice intimate bar for squeezing you in if you don't have reservations (most of the time). Their cocktails are creatively made and I like the orange Cosmo. They have a nice wine list of many local and Walla Walla wines.... More

While staying with friends we visited Wild Sage for a meal we will remember for years. The taquitos appetizer reviled anything I've had in the Southwest. Each entree ordered was beautifully presented i.e. trout, feta stuffed chicken breast with balsamic infused cherries, bouillabaisse extravaganza, and pork medallions. Service was exceptional, I have never experienced a graphic demonstration of the area... More

I know Liver and Onions isn't every bodies thing but I love a good liver and onions so I was happy to see it on their menu. It did not disappoint! My husband got their burger and it was wonderful. I want to come back and have a burger. We also had the Poblano Artichoke Dip with Dungeness Crab and... More

Two years ago on a visit to Spokane I had the pleasure of eating at the Wild Sage. This time the food, ambience and service was just as exceptional. If you have a chance to try the Wild Sage cocktail, do so. It is terrific! I had the Chicken with goat cheese and my friend had the Korean BBQ pork.... More

We went to the Wild Sage under the recommendation of the concierge at the Davenport, and we were very impressed with the place. :) We found a great bottle of wine from Walla Walla and we started with the Yukon Taquitos as recommended by our server. They were terrific! We also the Heirloom tomato salad as a starter, and it... More

If you look at the location and the outside of the building ...you might dismiss this hidden gem. Inside is small but well done. Get a reservation way ahead of time or your not getting in. Service was great and all the staff was friendly. And the food was the best. Unique menu with a refreshing take on bistro food.... More

Well, we really wanted to try the number one restaurant for Spokane, but after driving there on our way cross country, my husband was met at the door with the rudest of greetings. My husband politely asked, "two questions, is there a dress code and how long is the wait?" A very snippy, snobby hostess replied curtly, "yes. 45 minutes,"... More

I can't express how disappointed I am that you felt anything but welcomed in my restaurant. We are so much better then that. If I had to choose one thing and one thing only to brag about it would be my incredible staff of caring professionals. What you describe is not the person I have come to know in a... More

I just had yet another dinner at Wild Sage. It is hands down the best restaurant in Spokane, and arguably in all of Washington. The food is consistently great, the staff always friendly, and the owner is there almost every night, welcoming the customers. I go to Wild Sage any time we have visitors from out of town, or just...

Thank you!..Coming from the Seattle market, that's quite a compliment. I will agree with you on the gluten free dining. We have made a huge effort to offer a large variety of gluten free items. Our rule of thumb is that it should never be a lesser experience because it is GF. We look forward to your return. More
