    Fine dining with a tasting menu. Helpful and friendly staff, great service. We had the 5 course tasting menu and the food was great Only thing was that bread should not be included as one of the courses since this would be complementary in many other restaurants. Also, although the gnocchi was good, it could have had a few more ingredients, eg more mushrooms. The butternut squash panna cotta was delicious as well as the chocolate ant log.

    Sauvage RestaurantResponded 3 days agoEddie: Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review. We are glad that you enjoyed your experience. Most places that offer free bread, it comes from a box and is made in a factory somewhere. We mill our own flour, care for a starter that is likened to our pet, and the baking process takes up to 48 hrs for some of the loafs. For this amount of work, and the incredible tastes and textures, we do not believe that at the end of the day, is just bread.

    I can't recall ever dining at a more pretentious restaurant. The food all looked really beautiful, presentation was incredible, but all tasted really rather bland. It was like the only seasoning they used was salt. The meat in every course was overcooked and dry. The service was mediocre, and certainly not what I would expect for the prices they charge.

    Sauvage RestaurantResponded 3 days agoCal, I am sorry that you found us pretentious, we don't run into this often so please let us know what we can do to improve the experience. Our servers are extremely dedicated so I am curious about your experience. We don't use much of what you would consider traditional spices, our goal is to show off the beautiful and highly flavourful local foods so we don't like to hide them. Salt is a seasoning we use, on top of vinegars and other acids, but we do try to let the food do all the talking.

    This restaurant is all about amazing taste and texture combinations. Be prepared to stay a while when savouring a five or seven course meal. At our table we enjoyed both the wine pairings and the juice pairings. Every course was delicious and the pairings were perfect. But we’re already planning our next trip based on the gnudy alone.

    Incredible tasting experience. We paired the 10 course “hunter” menu with their suggested wines, and we loved all the flavors. Many dishes and flavors were new to us, but the presentation and experience was magnificent. Also they were very good about catering to dietary restrictions (gluten free) which was much appreciated! loved every bite and would definitely recommend!

    Sauvage RestaurantResponded on September 6, 2022Anonymous: We have room on our patio and offer people an option. We do not have AC since it is only warm for a few weeks in the year but since not everyone is into eating to save the planet we will have to look at acquiring one in the future. Thank you for joining us.

    Excellent service, smart, forward-thinking concept (local, foraged, seasonal), well-balanced and tasty offerings in the 7 course meal, ability to meet and even welcome various dietary quirks, well-matched food pairings--it's now a go-to for our celebrations and special occasions. If you haven't tried it yet, go before the place gets so busy you can't get a table :)

    Very nice drinks and wine by the glass. Some tasting courses were excellent: panna cotta with corn, lobster, nudi. Others were rather average: raspberry/chocolate dessert, bread. Overall a lovely evening out but not worth the money.

    The food was amazing. We chose the 7 course dinner with wine pairings. The staff was very knowledgeable about the dishes and the wine pairings were great. Food and wine pairings were $170 each. $120 each max would have been better, we thought. A lower price point might attract more customers. $425 including gratuity is quite high.

    Sauvage RestaurantResponded on September 3, 2022Graham: I really appreciate your taking the time to write a review. We do offer a dinner experience that you will be hard pressed to find in the area. Speaking to that, this doesn't come cheap. It takes a skilled crew long hours to prepare the food that you enjoyed. We are not looking to attract all customers, we could just cook tourist food. We love supporting local farms, and paying a living wage. We couldn't imagine offering the farmers less money than they deserve.

    Sauvage was a very neat experience, though rather disappointing, especially considering the price. The staff was friendly throughout the service, though seemingly robotic and going through the motions. When asked about the dishes and the ingredients which were used in them (out of fascination and curiosity), minimal information was given. Not a big deal, but a shame for such a unique restaurant. There are some real gems on this menu though! We had the 10 course meal and am sad to say that it wasn't as good as the site/menu make the experience out to be. I do understand this was a tasting menu, and that the flavours were to be odd. That they were, which resulted in a very interesting experience. While I do think that some of our dislike could be attributed to taste/preference, the consistency in quality between dishes was varying to say the least. For example, an egg appetizer would be one of the best things I've ever tasted, but any dish that included a mushroom tasted sour and almost hard to chew. The proportions for each dish were varied from a single bite, to some being a full meal in themselves. The presentation ranged from beautiful to seemingly dumped on a plate. The 2 person courses were all served on a single plate each time. We were only given one small plate throughout most of the meal to transfer the servings onto, resulting in cross contamination of dishes/flavours, and one set of cutlery for all courses. A second plate was given around course 7 (or 8?). Now all of this is totally fine, and normally I wouldn't feel the need to even say such a thing is bad or otherwise. However, for the price of $145/person, it does seem a bit odd. The bill came to just under $400. That includes (2x) 10 course servings, and a bottle of sparkling water + 18% tip. That said, I would never return and would never recommend spending that much money. Do I regret it? Not really, it's an interesting story. Though one I could have done without.

    Sauvage RestaurantResponded on September 6, 2022First, our servers were quite busy on the Friday when you joined us, I'm sorry that you assumed that they were curt, but I can assure you that is not the case. Our menus start small and work large, how a Tasting Menu works, and they are not a casual undertaking, which is why they are expensive. Most people don't like having their plates changed although we always do this after messy dishes anyways. The only thing sour on our mushroom is lemon. 10 dishes plus extras=13 plates/145=11.15 ea.

    Amazing food. We are a family of four and our kids are 11 and 15. They're pretty good eaters but the clincher with this meal was the accompanying non-alcoholic juice pairing for anyone who doesn't want to drink wine. The effort that went in to those drinks seemed to exceed the effort to pick the wines (which were also excellent, and interesting pairings). It was fun to sample all of it. The only criticism would be the quality of furniture on the patio didn't match the price tag for the dinner.

    This was an incredible experience. The food and service was out of this world. A special note about the pairings. The chef not only created both carnivore and vegetarian menus there was a carefully curated non alcoholic pairing offered. At first we assumed just ‘juices’ but wow. It was so much more elevated, thoughtful and complimentary to the meal. Outstanding. This is the most delicious and INCLUSIVE restaurant we’ve ever been to!

The love and skill that is put into the menu is evident in the beautiful food that is served. The drink pairing is awesome too, the non-alcoholic versions were so unique and complemented each dish perfectly. Cannot recommend this special place enough and can't wait to return! Chef Tracy is unbelievably talented.

    Basically a tourist trap, avoid at all cost. Food was mediocre at best, and the price tag puts them in competition with Michelin star level restaurants and they are no where close. Please save your money and get something reasonable somewhere else. Went there for birthday and they didn’t seem to notice that it was for a birthday despite indications on the reservation.
