The Sage Student Bistro operates as a customer-focused classroom providing our students an opportunity to refine their culinary, bakery, service, and supervisory skills in a setting where the element of time is as important as the food and service. Because this is a class, the Bistro is open when the students are in session. A standard menu and weekly, student-designed prix fixe specials are offered during dinner. For guests interested in booking a Showcase: Culinary Team Nebraska lunch, reservations can be made at the following website. https://coned.mccneb.edu/wconnect/ace/ShowSchedule.awp?&Mode=GROUP&Group=SPE&Title=Special+Event

    Our group of 4 enjoyed our lunches very much. Each dish was unique and refreshing. Our waitress was excellent when providing information about each menu item and the details of receiving the meals as they were prepared. We will definitely be back to enjoy lunch or dinner soon. Thank you!

    Did not have a sever throughout the whole lunch. The dinner manger ended up stepping up and help us. Dinner was excellent and inexpensive. This was a special occasion for us and wish that the service was better.

    This was a great place. The entire restaurant was run by students of the culinary arts there at Metro. They were professional and was informative when you asked about the menu. You could tell they were passionate about what they doing. The food was excellent!!! Better than some of 5 star restaurants I have been to in the past. I will be back!

    I took my 86 year old mom for lunch. It was a great experience. Shay was a great server. A closer enterance with no steps and less walking from handicapped parking would have been better. Harder for those with a cane. The outer lobby seating was appreciated. Great eating experience and server very good to our needs. Well worth it.

    Food was outstanding, service was friendly but bumpy. Small plate menu at lunch, so plates are delivered as they are finished in the kitchen, not necessarily in the traditional order. One of our entrees was completely omitted until we had finished dessert. The server was made aware of this when the bill was presented and apologies for back of house confusion were offered but there was no adjustment made to our bill. Learning curve at work. TLDR: Delicious food, front and back of house performance are works in progress.

    We used the ala carte menu for 5 ppl. There was way too much time between the charcuterie board and the next course. We were nit asked how we wanted our meat cooked. The beef burgundy nirmally is smaller pieces, the tenderloin was cooked sous vi, and arrived medium plus with no pink, medium rare would have been better. The duck breast was overcooked. The lamb was done fine. The pumpkin semifeddo was excellent.
