My husband and I planned a nice dinner out while visiting Canmore. This visit we decided upon Sage Bistro. Our first impression was our waiter telling us that the vegetables come pre-mixed so we were not able to ask for the dish without mushrooms. This seemed a bit odd considering that entrees were between $24-50. Premixed really? Other tables were... More

This is a very nice rustic purpose-built restaurant on the main road through Canmore. There's a bistro downstairs and a tapas/wine-bar upstairs and we tried the former. On a sub-zero evening we enjoyed excellent warming soup and a rich, reviving vegetable risotto which really hit the spot. Added to this was an excellent wine and very friendly service so Sage...

Have wanted to try this wine bar for a while! My man and I was in the lounge upstairs and ordered a bottle of wine, muscles and charcuterie dish. Everything was perfectly done, such amazing staff members, relaxing atmosphere and the food and wine complimented each other! Will be back for sure.

We had a wonderful brunch today at Sage. I loved the beautiful selection of teas, and the cozy atmosphere. The risotto with chicken was creamy and delicious, and my daughters eggs Benedict were cooked exactly how she likes them. We have been here before and never been disappointed. We will be back!

We went to the upstairs wine bistro, which features a tapas style menu compared to the restaurant side downstairs that serves a more traditional menu. We LOVED everything we ordered! Would recommend the short ribs, oysters (seasonal), fennel salad and mussels! The restaurant had a really relaxed feel which we really loved. Best food we had in Canmore!!!

I love the concept. The food was very good indeed. Short Ribs Amaxing. Good cheeses and meats and a fantastic selwction of wines. The chef really took what we wanted on board. I have been to Canmore 10 years on the trot. Never tried this restuarant due to the location next to a petrol station. Don't be fooled. This place... More

Only real complaint was the prices, seemed a tad high for what was offered. Still, food was of a high quality and service was not too bad either. Good place to eat if money is not a concern.

Went here tonight based on previous reviews. Staff seemed keen to explain the 2 menu's available although only one was available!? Service was really slow, ordered a platter for 4, took almost an hour. Didn't want anything else due to not knowing how long it would take. Wasn't busy in my opinion. My pregnant wife couldn't eat the non pasteurised... More

Enjoyed a very good business meal here as part of a group. There was a set menu with a couple choices for appetizer and 3 choices for mains. I had the salad and the beef. Both were very good. Not terribly creative or memorable but presented nicely and tasted good. Food could have been hotter. Overall a good meal but... More

I had the breakfast with bacon and scrambled eggs .. The bacon was so crispy.. Eggs well seasoned .. Sautéed potatoes were so tasty .. Smoothies on the side were a... More
