Had a great meal and service in an a good atmosphere. A little hard to find as it is in the rear of a strip mall type building. Thank God we found it!!!

“Great Food, Atmosphere, Service”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Sage Room is a local favorite and the only complaint you'll hear is the difficulty finding it. It is on the South End behind NY Pizza two rows back, keep looking, you'll find it. Once you do, the fun starts. Sage Room is a high end romantic atmosphere, open style restaurant, yet casual and comfortable. To start with, the service is always just right, informative, attentive, not over the top. Wine selection is very good. The food is an eclectic variety of gourmet items with great presentation. The food is plentiful in size, you will never leave hungry. My wife had the Almond crusted Tuna and I had the Pan Roasted Grouper with Boursin grits-out of this world good! If you are looking for a great restaurant for a special occasion, or couples who want to enjoy an evening without being rushed, this is it. I have been here at least a half dozen times, always consistent, never a complaint.

“One of the BEST Island Restaurant Experiences”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

We gave the Sage Room a try after buying an online deal, and we are so glad we did. Our server and the rest of the staff were all friendly, knowledgeable, and had great suggestions on what to order. Everything we tried from our bottle of wine, the champagne scallops, lamb rack, and all sides, appetizers, etc. were delicious and flavored perfectly, no additions needed. The only disappointment we experienced was not having the prior knowledge to sit by the bar at the Chef's Table - however, that just gives us an excuse to go back, and we definitely will be doing that soon! The menu is pricier, but with good reason since all food is of the highest quality and prepared in an expert way. An added bonus for us shows the overall quality of the experience at the Sage Room, since after the rack of lamb came out that we ordered, a second small plate quickly followed along with an explanation by our server from the chef that since the rack had cooked down more than he wanted, he was sending us additional cuts of meat. All this to say that they don't cut corners here, and their loyal customer following, both by locals and out-of-towners proves that they are consistently one of the best island restaurant experiences.

“Fantastic Food ~ Always Delicious!”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Going to the Sage Room is a "must see" restaurant experience! Make sure you call in your reservations early so that you can sit at the Chef's Table, which is the bar area directly in front of the cooking station. There, you can interact with the Chef and the other staff behind the counter. You can watch as they prepare the various meals, and dress the plates so beautifully. They are so pretty! And make sure you get the snow pea martini - it's a bargain at only $2 and the snow peas are delish! Every night, there are specials, and the regular menu has wonderful options as well. Everything is freshly prepared and cooked to order. While you are waiting and watching all of the food preparation, ask Jason (the bartender) to "create" a drink for you. Just tell him the kinds of beverages and flavors that you typically like to drink and he can make something completely special just for you. My husband always has Jason make him an original martini and they are always so tasty. We will always make the Sage Room one of our regular restaurants while in Hilton Head!

“Consistently good”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

We just returned from our annual vacation at Hilton Head and our annual dinner at the Sage Room and we all- 14 people- left happy with our experience. There is a good selection of appetizers which could be used as entrees for lighter eaters. The staff is friendly and competent and the food was great. I am sure we will be back next year.
