This is the former faculty club at the university— steps away from the Museum of Anthropology. The room is very spare, with nice views of the mountains and gardens. Service was very friendly. We had the sable and it was fantastic.

Beautiful view and simple light airy decor.

Menu is healthy and innovative, presented and served elegantly. Very easy to cater for allergies. Server pointed out what foods were in season.

Unfortunately only open for lunch.

A delightful experience

Noisy room in a gorgeous setting, overlooking the Pacific Ocean and the Coastal Mountain range. Service and food are typical of a high-end downtown eatery in Vancouver.

The experience was pleasant as were the staff. The staff were informative, courteous but not pushy1
We found the noise level increase as more patrons arrived. Possibly there is no need for background music once guests arrive??

The salmon with RICH sauce is worthy the people who enjoy seasonal seafood. The RICH creamy dessert is so special and insightful. The environment is RICH in connotation that you can't wait to feel more about it.

There is a new menu that caters to both vegetarians and fish lovers. My wife had a deconstructed caramelized onion and mushroom tart with collard greens and carrot shavings as well as a side of scallops in smoked eggplant puree, with crispy pancetta sprinkles, parsnip chips, and micro radish greens. I had grilled octopus with parsnip veloute, toasted lentils they were tasty, and substantial. The fish is Ocean Wise. It was a very good meal and we enjoyed being there.

The salmon was very good and the sauce was excellent. This restaurant has very pleasant views on a clear day. The seating is good on the raised balcony near the bar. Otherwise the chairs look a bit utilitarian. There is plenty of space between the tables. The service was professional, but slightly slow. The menu is suitable for adults and lists a fairly limited range of dishes. The background music was classical on the day of our visit.

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.
