We went there for lunch, food was pretty good but service was no so good. We got served wrong wine, then got the wrong desert and on top of it bill was incorrect which was fixed when i pointed out the overcharged amount but an apology would have been nice.

Fabulous food. I seriously would love to give the chefs 5/5 but unfortunately the service has to be taken into account. Therefore, the 3.

I have to be fair and say that it was THAT night in Canberra where the temperature reached over 40. I had rung earlier in the day to check that the restaurant aircon was functioning and it wasn't too awful indoors. I was told that it was 'warm' indoors but quite comfortable so I went ahead with my birthday booking... More

If you are after a restaurant experience where you can enjoy the company of friends then Sage is ideal. The menu has a great variety of options and is appealing to most tastes. The restaurant is quiet enough to hear each other chat - not like many other places in Canberra.

I was taken here on a Saturday evening for my birthday. We arrived early at 6pm as this location can be difficult to find a parking spot. We placed our orders for the set menus which are all that's offered. There's a vegetarian and carnivore menu which on this night, had a lot of fish. We sat and waited a... More

Hi Canberra_Traveller, As you saw I was completely shattered that I couldn't fulfill an amazing dinner for you when you came in. I would also like thank you for your understanding at the time and I know I didn't deliver an extraordinary experience on your night. You will stick in my mind for a very long time as the table...

Couples dinner on a Friday. Very friendly service from Andrew from start to finish... attentive without being overbearing. The menu is not huge... which we kinda liked... so you can have either a degustation option or choose 3 options. We went with 3 choices and started with kingfish then had beetroot then lamb. Serves aren't massive but really nicely presented... More

A group of us lashed out and greatly enjoyed the experience. It is a tad pretentious and it certainly is NOT cheap. The group had the degustation menu, some vegetarian and some mixed. All of the 4 dishes and dessert were excellent in quality of the ingredients and the flavours. As is often the case, the size of the portions... More

Went to Sage for my partners birthday celebration. Cannot fault a thing. Service and food were amazing. We also had the matching wines with each course and they were great!

This restaurant is well worth a visit. On our recent visit the food and the service from the waitstaff was excellent. We had the 8 course degustation and my husband had the matching wines which was all superb. I can recommend Sage to anyone who have dietary problems as they coped very well with mine. Thanks for a great night.

I am unfortunately a Christmas Baby, so every year I have a hard time finding a good restaurant that's open on my birthday (two days before Christmas). The ones that are open, are trying to get rid of the food in the fridge before closing for the holidays. I think this may have been the case with Sage which, while... More
