“Always fun and an adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

My husband love to go here for a treat. We get the pre fixe menu and always enjoy trying the new food items. It is a student run restaurant so there are some things that are not perfect. However, we always leave happy, well informed about the food, and very satisfied. It takes about 2 hours for the full experience, but it goes so quickly. I would highly recommend going and trying it out.

“Decent food, horrible service, took forever.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2011

We had a reservation for 6:30. We ordered pretty much right away but the food didn't arrive until 8:00. It was ridiculous. The server was amazingly awkward and took forever to do anything. We went through three bread baskets while we were waiting for our food because we were so hungry. When the food did arrive, it was not hot but the plates definitely were. My salmon was average - honestly, I like it better when I steam it at home in the microwave. The miniscule piece of chocolate cake we had for dessert was pretty good. The bill for three people, no wine, was $73.00. If I'm going to pay $73 for dinner, it ought to at least be hot. We probably won't eat here again - the students have a lot to learn about the proper way to serve customers! It's too bad, because this could be a really cool place.

“Unique restaurant run by students in Metro CC "culinology" program-high quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2009

One of our most interesting experiences while in Omaha was dinner at Sage Bistro. It is best to call for reservations. Most of the time, you will have a choice between the static menu which is ala cart and the prefixe menu that is 4 courses for $26. You can also bring your own wine if you like. We have been twice and enjoyed both experiences. We started with the charcuterie plate which both times was a mix of sausages, cheeses and some sort of pickle d vegetables. I think the one last time had some pate. It also had homemade crackers and a bread basket. They do try to locally source the food and everything is home made. I had the prefix menu and hubby ordered ala cart. He had the BLT sliders which were delicious and the pork confit also very good but a few more bites would have been a good thing. The entrees are not consistant in portion size with some being much larger than others. Last time I had some sort of beef filet that was huge! The salad with carpaccio was tasty as was the onion soup. The soup was covered in cheese and browned nicely. It was a little sweeter than usual due to the fact it had brioche for the bread and apples in it. The Scallop Vol au Vent was tasty and contained 3 scallops in the house made puff pastry. It needed a little more of the sauce. I was looking forward to the dessert which was a sweet corn cake with a tomato relish or chutney and a black pepper florentine, but they were out of the florentine so we had the orange caramel cream and chocolate cake. Two pieces of of home made candy came with the bill. Lat time we were given the opportunity to write comments on a s'more soup which included home made graham crackers and marshmallows and hot chocolate-very good. The setting is sort of plain with white tablecloths and a single candle. The walls are plain gray and would be a great background for student art. We liked the music(Patsy Cline). Our bill with all of the above plus coffee was around $65.
