This is a great restaurant for meeting up with friends before heading on to some other activities (like a visit to the nearby art museum). The food is flavorful and the service great. Reasonably priced.

We dine out a lot. Call us foodies. The food and service at the Gage is solid, and the atmosphere is lively. But the noise level is intolerable. This is the loudest restaurant I have ever been to. Will not go back.
