Very fresh, well made dinner. I enjoyed the sage mushroom soup and ravioli, but I was too full for dessert. I like the ambiance, it's relaxing but not stuffy.

We went out to a last minute dinner tonight. We stopped in and had a wonderful meal tonight. The waitstaff was super friendly and the food was delicious. Definitely worth a try if you are in the area.

We found Sage less impressive this time than the first time we went a couple of years ago. Food was Ok but not as good as before. Wine list was sharply truncated. Service is still very good and the ambiance is as nice as ever....Hope they get back on track.More

Service was professional. Food was sub par. Chicken plate was so bad didn't eat was dried out. Noodles for the Spaghetti also dried. Wanted it to be good. Maybe we will get something else next time? Maybe

After a long grueling day of travel, with major issues with our accommodations, all we wanted to do is relax with a cocktail and a good meal. We would have stopped almost anywhere at that point. How fortunate that we stumbled upon Sage. It was...crowded, but only a short wait. Jean, the manager/owner(?) was very attentive, and found us a cozy table in about 10 minutes. Very nice menu, and the food backed it up. Our server was also very attentive, and sympathetic when we told her of our tough day. By the time we finished our awesome meal, Jean came over to us, asked us a few questions, then sent out an email to the other nearby hotels and Inns, to see if they had a room for us. One of them actually came through, but we had already found one on line. Talk about going above and beyond. I would recommend Sage as a destination restaurant, it was that good, but also for their attention to their customer's needs. Sorry it took so long to review Sage. Put it on your Vermont bucket list.More

Best meal we've had out in a very long time. I had the grouper and it exceeded expectations. My husband had the garden salad, beef rib with mash. Perfect comfort food. They don't mind if you share so you can split things up to suit....We plan to be regulars!More

We had a very nice meal at Sage. The menu is really extensive which was a nice surprise as many restaurants have had limited menus during covid. Three different soups, 5-6 salads, small plates, large plates. Chicken, beef and plenty of seafood options. Started the...meal with lobster bisque and a garden salad. Both were very tasty and large portions. We had the macaroni and cheese, meatballs and scallops~ all small plates, next. The Mac and cheese had these amazing huge tubes of pasta. We were not sure we could taste truffle oil on them. But, it was still delicious. We really likes what we ordered. My only complaint is the size of the glass of wine. Very small! About 2 oz smaller than most restaurants. I was surprised when it came to the table.More

Mad River Valley is challenged by lack of servers and bar tenders. However, Sage had 1 server and no bar tender but went way out of their way to make us drinks and served excellent food. The rack of lamb and bolognese were scrumptious and...proportions were large. Would go back again!More

Chicken shashlik looked inviting on the menu but turned out to be grilled chicken topping a bowl of soggy other ingredients, visually unappetizing and somewhat sour/salty in flavor. Paella was a red-hot salt bomb with heavy-handed spices that overwhelmed the flavor of the albeit plentiful...seafood. If you are expecting the delicate fragrant saffron rice rendition that is heavenly to enjoy when you can find it you won't get it here. Our waiter was attentive. We dined with a friend (also paella) and on both checks we were overcharged. Apparently they have not reprinted the paper menu to reflect the higher online price. They did refigure the tab to agree with the menu price.More

We visited in winter 2019/early 2020 and had amazing food while dining at the bar. Sam was an amazing bar tender. The right amount of interaction and let us dine. Understanding that the MRV at this time (August 2021) is having hiring drama we sat...at the bar again. Again Sam, the bartender was awesome. This time however the food was not. We were a group of 5. My daughter and I had the chicken and bulgar dish, chicken was dry and the rest was unflavorful. Our 3rd guest had Salmon and the veggies had no flavor. The Pork tenderloin was dry and the Lamb dinner was ehh. For the price my feeling is we will not return to Sage.More

So glad we went!! After seeing the new restaurant I the place of an old time enjoyable spot, we decided to try it. And it was the best thing!! We sat outside, on a beautiful mid-June night, but the inside looked very nice and welcoming...too. They have a nice wine list and we chose a wonderful Spanish organic Cabernet, and started with the Chef’s Mezze sampler: great selection and the smoky flavor of the grilled pita bread was fabulous , and the hummus, smoked eggplant, garlic yogurt and spicy pepper and walnut Myanmar’s were absolutely delicious, a vibrant and not overly spicy blend of flavors with smooth textures, just perfect. Our main courses were just as well executed: the wild mushroom gnocchi and the grilled vegetable timbale both shined in flavor and ingredients. Couldn’t be happier or more impressed! So glad we came today and will be back again!!More
