Stopped in for a drink and what a pleasant experience. We were greeted by friendly staff and a great atmosphere. We went up to the rooftop bar to have a drink and here we met Aaron the bartender. He made delicious drinks and we had...interesting conversation. We will definitely be visiting again!More

We arrived late in Sarasota and just walked into Sage, lovely building and restaurant. We were made to feel incredibly welcome by the front desk and restaurant staff. The restaurant history and menu was expertly explained. Food was wonderful, we had the Bouillabaisse, pork chop...and mussels. All superb!More

Last Saturday was our first visit to Sage and I’m already looking forward to our next dinner. The architecture and atmosphere are unique and beautiful. We ordered the agnolotti at the recommendation of the chef, and the octopus. Both were cooked and presented perfectly. We...also split the caesar, which our server brought out on two plates which was appreciated. Servers and bartenders were friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Service slowed down a bit towards the end of our meal but the food was well worth a bit of a wait. Overall fabulous experience.More

Atmosphere is beautiful- wish there was a larger menu selection/ hubby wanted some bread or just a side of rice or pasta - anything carb like - we were willing to pay but the servers said there was nothing we could get- very specific menu...with no modifications is hard for some diners- wish there were some side options to please picky eaters - service and drinks were great!More

This was our first visit to Sage. We had Jonathon as our waiter and he made the dinner so enjoyable with his great service and knowledge of Sage. I had fun trying to find something that Johanthon couldn't answer for me - I lost and...all of his recommendations were right on. Sage has now become one of our top choices for a great dinner in Sarasota.More

We have been to Sage about a dozen times and every visit was superb! We have hosted numerous guests including two parties of about eight friends in each and all were very pleased at the food, ambience and service. We are returning next week with...another couple who haven't been to Sage and am certain they, too, will become regulars.More

We arrived on vacation, used to live here. Sage did not exist when we left. We went for our 10 year anniversary based on a recommendation from a friend. Exceeded all expectations. Although we were sat next to a bunch of loud kids upstairs, (wtf...we are on our anniversary), the food made up for the miss-seating. Once ago I was a Chef. On my knife… ON MY KNIFE, these guys can cook! FIRE on all levels. Thank You.More

Greeted in this historic building. Enjoyed the personal and attentive service from Mallery. An appetizer to stimulate the desire for the delicately prepared meal. OK, I am not a gourmet, but the desricptions on the menu were delivered on our plates. Beautiful to look at,...and wonderful to taste and enjoy. Our waiter took great care of us - from start to finish. What a major difference than almost every other restaurant in our area. Thank you for an enjoyable evening!More

Heard a lot about the place so we went. Service was slow and inept. No bread available, even for a price. Want salt, no dice. The chef, I'm told, knows just how to season the food, so you don't have to. The food was overly...sauced and over priced. Never again.More

What is there to like, what is there not to like? The young hostess appeared to not like her job and was bored. The two bartenders on the roof patio that were condescending and arrogant. Our server was adequate. The food was underwhelming so say...the least. The building was the nicest part of our experience, also the valet was nice. The establishment was clean, the prices were reasonable. The overall menu was lacking. This is a place to avoid. It was the worst dining experience we have had in years. If you check my past reviews you see that very very seldom do I dislike a place as much as this place. We visited on a Friday night when it should have been busy but it wasn’t and I can certainly see why. The owners seem to be trying hard with a beautiful building but the staff lacks training. The food was lacking in quantity and quality, my duck breast was dry and tasteless. My wife’s salmon was lacking in flavor with both meals hardly hot. Trying hard not to sound like a snob but wow it just was terrible from start to finish.More

In a historic building it’s a nice spot, cool art with a chill vibe. It has a nice bar with a good drinks menu although we could not transfer our tab to the table which was weird for a high end place. Server was good...and knowledgeable. Where it lacked was the food. Although presentation was nice , flavors were lacking. The spring roll was dull and the sauce was wrong. The hamaichi crudo was actually pretty good. The Thai bouillabaisse which is a signature dish lacked any real depth , the Pork porterhouse was over cooked and the salmon was just okay. Desserts- the Paris coconut cream brest was okay but the cream lacked coconut flavor. The crème brûlée was the best thing all night. We did not get to experience the rooftop as there was a wedding.More

The food and the cocktails were both first rate. I can see why they never remove that bouillabaisse from the menu. Sat in the outdoor section.

I do not have a good reason as to why this was my first time to Sage. But I do have good reason as to why it’s now my #1 restaurant in Sarasota for a great night out! My mom and I went on a...Saturday night. Reservations at 6PM. We were promptly greeted at the hostess stand and then seated by our server. I really liked being seated by the server. It felt like a warm invitation into someone’s home . It felt more personal rather than just being dumped off at the table by host/hostess. The server whose name I shamefully can’t recall was FANTASTIC! He was consistently professional and friendly. He really seemed to want us to enjoy the evening. The Caesar salad - DELICIOUS. A fresh, light take on a classic. The hint of lime and fresh crunchy romaine hearts were such a refreshing change from a traditional over-dressed heavy Caesar. Mom and I split the salad. It was the perfect portion. The heritage pork AND the Chicken Saltimbocca BOTH were a 10!!! We shared the entrees since they both appealed to us. Could not decide which we liked better. The food was so excellent that we felt compelled to order 2 deserts - just for experimentation of course ;) The lemon cheesecake was good but the Orangesicle Crème Brûlée was a dream. The silkiest texture and right level of flavor. The sugar was caramleied perfectly for a perfect crunchy contract to the velvety inside. AMAZING! My new favorite place!More
