After you've eaten at Wild Sage you'll know why it gets such high ratings. The ambiance is warm and comfortable and the food and service were excellent. Our server could talk to me about cocktails and various ingredients as well as if she were a talented bartender or chef. We had salads and smaller dishes and the fondue will leave... More

A warm, inviting setting with friendly and welcoming staff. We thoroughly enjoyed our pork belly appetizer, super tender and flavorful pork chop, and perfectly cooked calf liver. Our server was attentive without being pushy. We ordered a nice Walla Walla red from their wine list - very good. We travel to Spokane to visit family and for work -- we... More

This is a great place for good seafood and great views. Atmosphere is attractive but not what I would call warm. This is a great place to take visitors. Especially those who don't get fantastic fish and seafood where they live. The chowder is award winning. Staff is efficient and nice

One of the best meals we've had in a long time. I had seafood, he had steak as well as an appetizer plate and cheese dish for dessert. Excellent service and the entrees were wonderful.

This is our third visit to Wild Sage. Until something quite a bit better comes along, it will always be a good place for a special occasion (or not). There were 3 of us this time. All the dishes were excellent with the exception of the calamari. If its on a menu I'm going to order it, I don't know... More

My first time dinning in Spokane and what a home run. Nice decor, not at all noisy, polished wait staff. Well planned out menu, great wine by the glass. Ordered the pork chop, juicy, cooked just right. Looking forward to my next visit.

Wild Sage's menu is subject to change and is seasonal in nature because they try to only serve locally sourced, fresh food. It is always good but you MUST RSVP. Our 1st time in we were able to get "squeezed " in between reservations but usually they are booked solid until after 9 pm and they don't open until 4pm.

Seeing that this was the number one rated on trip advisor I had to try while I was in town. Boy am I glad I did. Pros - freaking amazing food. Coming from Seattle and experiencing Tom Douglas's restaurants I would tell Tom that if he were in Spokane he would have to stop here. I don't usually take pictures... More

Well I am going to hold you to that comment, and will be awaiting a reservation call from Chef Douglas! Thank you for joining us and all the lovely comments. I never get tired of getting a rave! Boy, am I with you on the parking situation! It has been tough with the entire downtown torn up. We are luckier... More

Have dined here a few times. Nice greeting. Engaged server. Food is varied and expertly prepared. Too full to have dessert. A shame. You'll like it
