I have never been disappointed with my dining experience at Sage. Sometimes the menu is better than other times, but it is always good. I bring people from industry to speak to my engineering students, and invariably, they are impressed. Some of them who live in Vancouver have said they would like to bring their wives for dinner, or dine here on weekends, but unfortunately, only lunch is available.

You must really hate vegetarians. I have now successfully concluded over 10 years at UBC without a single decent vegetarian meal at Sage. It's impressive. At least this one I could eat, unlike the last one.

The food and staff at Sage are excellent but they should not take reservations at 1:45 and then tell us the kitchen closes at 2pm. I appreciated that they did take our orders after some urgent pressure but it did spoil our meal which was a celebration. Some items were not available.

Just a comment on the dish my lunch companion ordered - the Portobello mushroom - was quite salty. She ate most of her meal. I had a taste but personally would not have been able to eat very much of it.
My flank steak was just right.

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. :)

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.

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.

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.

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 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.
