“Wonderfully Prepared Local Fare, Fun Kitchen”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

The food here is great -- local dishes like elk and trout shine with inventive preparation and intense flavor. The house-made foccaccia may have been the single best thing I ate all weekend: so much truffle-y buttery salty goodness! Ask for a table with a view of the kitchen; the two chefs work in a small open space, almost silently, constantly going full-out, but somehow manage to move seamlessly and effortlessly around each other -- it's quite a show. My only knock would be that the restaurant is in the foyer of the Rusty Parrot, and doesn't feel very separate from the front-desk action of the lodge. In every other respect, the meal was a treat.

“One of the best meals I have ever had!”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

My husband and I arrived in Jackson Hole, settled in, unpacked, and set out to find a good dinner. On a whim, we chose The Wild Sage. We chose it because of the proximity to our hotel. I had no expectations, and I was blown away with the meal. I had the Kobe steak, my husband had the Chilean Sea Bass. Both were exceptional. It is a small, intimate restaurant. You can watch the chef prepare the meal in the open kitchen. We were able to get an early last minute reservation (still on east coast time). With only a few tables I would recommend making a reservation. It really is a gem, and it will not disappoint.!

“True Valentine's Day Treat”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

This was our first visit to Wild Sage; however, we had heard from friends that it is one of the best restaurants in a greater Jackson Hole area.
We arrived a few minutes early for our reservation but we were greeted by a very pleasant maitre d' and seated immediately. From that moment on, the service and attention we received was perfect.
The special Valentine's Day menu provided a very nice selection of entrées. We started with lobster bisque and foie gras and were were not disappointed. We both enjoyed our Wagyu steak which was cooked just as we asked. Our steak was paired with an excellent choice of French red wine, recommended by the sommelier, from restaurants' extensive wine selection. The only disappointing part of the meal was the dessert. Very dry short bread type cookie with chocolate streamed on top and accompanied by couple of strawberries that were not fresh. The upside was that the cappuccino was excellent as was the Single Malt Scotch.

The best testament is that we intend to spend many special dinners at this restaurant.

“Wild Sage - A gem in Jackson, WY”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

Wild Sage proved to be one of the best places in Jackson, WY! Upon entering the restaurant, diners will take note of the beautiful decor that embraces a very rustic but warm feel. A fireplace in the middle of the room and dark redwoods bring an Old West comfort. The service is fantastic as the server immediately greets you and stays attentive, but not over bearing, throughout the whole meal. The highlight to the whole experience is the incredible food they produce. The beet salad was incredibly fresh and tasty, the Tomato Soup was flavorful and savory and the main courses are to die for! The trout was very fresh and tender, falling off the bone before you get near it with a fork and the Lamb Shank was the best ever! Our regret was not having the opportunity to try the dessert because we were so full!

Beautifully hand-crafted food combining local ingredients (elk, bison, venison, trout) with beautifully-prepared vegetables and fruit. Delicious desserts!
