“Simply an AWESOME Experience”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

What an awesome experience from the moment we pulled up to the Valet stand until we returned a few hours later! The hotel staff and bar staff provided a great experience for us prior to our dinner reservations. Once seated at an incredible view table by the window, we met our extremely attentive waiter for the evening, Marshall. He and his associates on his service provided impeccable service, attention to detail and very detailed explanations of the menu including recommendations. We gave Marshall free reign to surprise us with a bottle of Chardonnay of his choosing and we were pleasantly surprised with his Heller Estates selection. The course timing was ideal, no one was rushed with their meal and it was an ideal evening. It won't be our last time at LaBella Vita or The Sagamore Resort!

“Very Good”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

My wife and I met my cousins here for dinner and had a very nice meal. We were promptly seated at a table for 4. We had a very attentive waiter. Meals came out in satisfactory intervals allowing us to enjoy all courses and have great conversation. All 4 of us ordered different entrees and we all enjoyed them respectively. We ordered the NY Strip special of the night which was really good, the Rustic Seafood Stew (a take on a Bouillabaisse), the Chicken Saltimbocca, and the Halibut entree. Everything came out well, was very tasty, and we were very satisfied. We can wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant if you are staying in the area.

“lA bELLA VITA RESTURANT”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

My husband and I only had a night to get away and we chose the sagmore, which we did not know that much about. At this time of year the hotel only had one resturant open so we were a little skeptical of how the night would turn out. We were greeted by Nick our waiter, he is a reason I would return to the resturant, he was fantastic. He had a non rush attitude, met all of our needs in a timely manner, listened had suggestions, kind and a great smile. He is efficnet and knowledgable, there is not much more I can say other than Nick was great!

“lovely meal”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Had dinner here Saturday evening with long time girlfriends. Service was good. Soup was ok, salads were very good and generous portions. Halibut with clams with pasta was delicious and others enjoyed their chicken dishes. Wine choices did not list vintage but the Columbia Valley Riesling we had was good and developed well over the meal. Gelato sampler was terrific.

“A very nice resturant, even for a hotel”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Usually hotel dining is geared to a captive audience but this one was very nice. We enjoyed our food very much. We choose from a Prix Fix menue but did not feel deprived at all. We loved the filet of beef which was cooked perfectly and tender and juicy. The salmon was just slightly on the dry side but not by much. The wine choices were good and the desserts were great. A very nice room with a good view of the resort and the lake.
