We were really looking forward to dinning at this restaurant because of the overall positive reviews on Yelp. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed by the terrible service. When we arrived, we were not greeted and not sure if we were supposed to sit ourselves or order at the bar. So we sat ourselves at one of the empty tables. Then... More

My wife is a vegetarian, and though I am not, I prefer this place to any other in Chapel Hill for date night. The options here are consistent but have a nice diversity. I have eaten everything on the menu, and while it is all good, I recommend the gnocchi by far. I make gnocchi, and am almost always disappointed... More

Everything I eat here is amazing! My favorite is the Caribe - so good!!! The indoor ambience is romantic and the outdoor tables are quaint. I love to eat dinner with the hubby or meet friends for lunch. It is my favorite place to eat in all of the triangle!

As vegetarians, we love this small, charming restaurant, but even carnivores would enjoy the tasty (and hearty) dishes offered here. Don't miss the salad with dill dressing--so delicious. I'm fond of the Caribbean bean/rice/tofu/plantain plate and my husband loves the veggie kebobs, but everything looks good.

We wanted to try this vegetarian restaurant before a movie. We were lucky to get seated without a wait. This is a popular restaurant. The aroma when we first entered was enough to quickly erase any doubts about trying something new and maybe a little different. We were very glad we came. We looked at the dishes as they came...

We visited here with our vegetarian daughters, one a student at UNC. Worth the drive from campus! Cozy atmosphere and pleasant staff. Varied menu from soups to large salads to pasta and rice entrees. We even had a couple desserts. The lemonade was especially tasty as well. We will be back next visit!

Sage is a cute restaurant with a tiny outdoor seating area in addition to the relatively small indoor dining room. They have pretty many menu options from soups, salads, sandwiches, entrees and desserts. I LOVE their Fesen-Joon! I get take out regularly which is quite fast. The only reason that I didn't give them 5 stars is that the tables... More

The food is wonderful at Sage ... tasty, perfect-size portions, and good variety. Love the desserts as well! The wine selection, while rather limited, is good. There are probably around 20 tables (plus a small patio with tables weather permitting) and the atmosphere is very cozy. After watching a good movie at the theater next door at Chelsea, run, don't...

Amazing! Ordered sampler app- loved the dill potato salad. Entree was the curry 'chicken' with mushrooms...and the banana chocolate cake for dessert. There was a bit of a wait on Saturday evening, but definitely worth it. Couldn't have asked for a better experience! So thrilled to eat at a restaurant with so many options for me and my son's dietary... More

As a vegetarian, my first time traveling through NC was a bit challenging. I was delighted to hear about Sage Cafe from friends in New York before we left on our road trip. We sought out the cafe for lunch one day, and had an amazingly delicious lunch. Our server was super friendly and spent a lot of time describing... More
