Our family loves to go to Sageleaf when we have something to celebrate, in this case the impending birth of a baby. Seven of us, ranging in age from 4 to 72, were beautifully looked after and served a delicious dinner which everyone enjoyed. Between us, we tried the goat's cheese tart, the scallops, the crispy lamb ribs, the braised... More

We booked the restaurant with 24 people for a Christmas lunch. The menu was agreed upon two weeks prior with lots of choices. All clients had a ball. Food was first class that impressed a very discerning crowd! 10/10!

We've eaten here several times with friends who enjoy good food and we have always been impressed. Menu changes regularly. Food is delicious, service is excellent. Restaurant is BYO and licensed.

you can still BYO wine here or select from one of their range. Food is not adventurous but what they do they do well and with a "can do" attitude. Worth trying

We dined with friends, a group of six and we each enjoyed a main course and dessert. The food selection is wide and varied, our group chose three different mains and all we declared tasty, delicate and perfectly cooked and presented. The quantity of each was appropriate. I had Beef tenderloin and was it tender! and very tasty too. I'm... More

Visited last week after reading good reviews on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. All courses we had were perfectly cooked and extremely tasty - from the perfectly cooked scallop entrée to the confit duck leg. The menu is fairly small but I thinks it is better to execute fewer dishes perfectly than a larger amount poorly. We were there on... More

It's unusual for the top rated restaurants to remain quiet but Sageleaf remains one of the undiscovered culinary treasures in Camberwell. A French bistro style with a focused menu, it always has fresh ingredients and fresh takes on classic dishes. Now there is a restaurant across the street that is much more popular, I guess its the current "place to... More

We have eaten here a number of times so there was no hesitation on our part to take my husbands work colleagues here as a farewell dinner. And as always it did not disappoint. From the beautifully cooked Lamb ribs which are fantastic sticky and just so damn good to the pan fried Scallops which are melt in the mouth... More
