Great seafood and vegetarian lunch options, and excellent desserts.
This is my go-to place at UBC to host a nice meal with visiting colleagues or others. Great venue and reliably great food.
Best spot on campus for a nice, non-cafeteria style lunch. Great seafood options and classy atmosphere.
Great food, outstanding service--UBC is lucky to have such a good restaurant on campus.
Seafood pasta was clearly microwaved and the salmon steak was overcooked. Sauces were not overly sweet and the palettes of each dish were adequately healthy and balanced. However, for the asking price, the quality of the food wasn't really worth it. The view and service were quite nice good, creating a decent enough ambience. Wines were not too shabby as well!
Also, if you are a student, you can put alcoholic beverages on your flex dollars. :)
A little pricey for the amount of food but service and quality of food were excellent. A lot of natural light in the restaurant which made for a great environment overall.
Worse meal in 25 years of living in Vancouver. Pleasant dining room.
overall very good. Meals were delicious but salty. View and experience was well worth it
Very relaxed feel of this place now that it is not crazy busy. . I definitely would return with other colleagues. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable.
My friend and I are regulars at Sage. The managers and servers are wonderful, friendly and have great knowledge of their menu. We always sat on the upper level and enjoyed the view with our delicious lunch. The pan-seared beef and cremini mushroom garganelli pasta is a MUST try! I like the play of the different flavors of whipped butter.
The food at Sage was clean and nourishing. I think Sage could do better with the atmosphere - there is nothing of visual interest in the room and I was disappointed in the view considering the location.
The service was VERY slow. Waited over an hour for food from arriving.
Although the staff weren't particularly welcoming the two times i've been, the view is outstanding and the food is phenomenal. They have great gluten free rolls, and a herb honey bread to die for!
It is a very relaxed but busy place, comfortable dining room. would return to try more dishes. Food was great and the service too. Keep it up. definitely a regular for us and we love it. have tried out a variety of foods and will keep trying. Great chef.
I've visited Sage since I was a Graduate student. Whenever I am there, I always feel comfortable and cozy. Yesterday, I had Wild Pacific Salmon dish. It was so awesome and great. The female server is always nice too. Definitely, I will visit Sage again as usual.
Great service. Food is fresh and delicate.
Very good food, can be a bit pricy but overall a great meal
Sage is always a good place for a luncheon meeting, or to chat with friends over a tasty and beautifully presented meal. The restaurant is moderate to slightly expensive. Light lunch offerings during the weekdays are reasonably priced and tasty.
The staff were helpful and super knowledgeable about everything on the taste terrific menu. Our young son was treated to a Chefs special modification to his order so he was pleased. Desserts are each very beautiful and yummy. I'm definitely going to go back.
A tasty combination of lovely view and tasty lunch. The wait staff are knowledgeable and friendly and the food was improved from my last visit. The room lacks charm except for the bar area, but the view is dramatic.
Ordered the Seafood Tagliatelle. Portion was perfect but a little salty taste-wise (may be due to the capers). The salmon pieces were also fairly dry - I thought they tasted like smoked salmon.
I've dined here several times in the past but on this occasion, I found the service to be inconsistent. Soup of the day was not introduced - it would have been nice to know this when the menu was presented and/or when the order was taken. Oddly enough, this was done for the other tables seated after mine.
Great food! Although prices are a little expensive, the dishes are all made with authentic ingredients, beautifully plated, and just nicely put-together. It was also perfect for special occasions. Service was also terrific.
Service & food were very good. Noise level was quite high.
Had middle of the week lunch with out of town relatives after visiting MOA. The online reservation worked, the service was friendly and non-intrusive, the wine list appealed to us. Everyone enjoyed their food, the ambience was pleasant a the noise level was acceptable - especially with some of us having hearing aids.
Thanks for a lovely lunch.
I was disappointed that the restaurant did not offer a dairy-free option when I requested a Cappuccino made with a non-dairy beverage. Otherwise, everything was fine.
All eight of us loved it. We will be back for sure. Too bad you aren't open some evenings.
Great setting. I love that it is quiet! You can have a conversation. Perfect for a special lunch on campus - with visitors or other special occasions. The vegetarian options are a glaring weakness.
Such a friendly manager. Always makes us feel welcome and appreciated.
i eat at Sage frequently because I take guests from industry there after they speak in my classes. I also invite friends and take my wife their occasionally as well. The staff are pleasant to me and the food is predictably good. Local ingredients are utilized in an effort to come close to the 100 mile diet. i would like a few more dishes on the menu since in a 3-month period i will dine there 6 times or more, so would like more options. Usually the special is something different, so that works. But a few more appetizers would be good too.
Excellent service and very bright room with a good amount of space between tables. Accommodating re: dietary issues. Very nice menu selection.
Second visit under the new (revised) menu. The quality of the food seems to be high but the portions are small. The food is positioned in a circular pattern around the edge of the plate leaving one to wonder what is to go in the middle; the meal?
We had a wonderful time. Food, service, and the view excellent. Two very minor cons was a little noisy and my post meal coffee, although tasty, was a little weak. Looking forward to a visit on a sunny day.
Always a good meal at Sage! Good dishes, attentive service and it was a clear day so was a tremendous view!
The duck dish on their Christmas menu was absolutely delicious. Tender and moist. Dish was not too heavy and portion was perfect for lunch.
The food was excellent-I had the potato leek soup of the day and the beet salad. Small portions which were perfect. Great ambiance too.
Wow! Sage appears to be in trouble. I have eaten there several times in recent years and had fantastic meals. In particular, the food was superb and the service good. The "reno" is ridiculous, but in the past one could overlook it. Yesterday's meal featured raw steak and frozen whip cream on my dessert. UBC needs a decent restaurant and if both the food and decore are bad, there's a big problem!
The ambience is outstanding and, for my purpose on this occasion, the meal was perfect
The atmosphere was sterile...like a cafeteria.
The food was tasty and artistically served but the portions were too small. I am a female, a light eater and a health nut but we all found the dishes were unsatisfying in quantity.
Service was just right....unobtrusive.
Great place for a quiet conversation.
The bill was $85 at lunch for two people. Both ordered the daily special lunch entry, no extras except coffee.
I like the small plates and enjoyed the Arctic Char. It is a farm fish and I grew up eating wild Arctic Char but it still tasted good. The food is plated beautifully and we enjoyed our meal.
