Wild Sage Kitchen & Bar
Firstly there is no signpost so finding it was a guessing game as it is within the DoubleTree hotel. On entering its setting doesn’t look organized with no seating service, and all the staff scurrying around busy. Overall the meal came in good time and great presentation. However the steak was not the tastiest and a bit stale but I would return and try a different meal
Loved the food and atmosphere. Because of the long weekend and the time of day I was there, we had the place almost all to ourselves so it was very quiet. Our server was awesome.
Father day brunch
Father’s Day. Was unaware it was going to be a buffet. Food was good.
The service was awful. We had a reservation for 12 - they put us at two different tables. The service was awful. The waiter once he took our drink order -which we had to ask him if we could order drinks - could not remember who go what drink. Had to get up and go to the bar and ask for service to get a second drink. Our food order again he had to ask where each meal went? I would think any waiter should either know how to write the orders down so they know where they are going or remember who ordered what. The restaurant was far from busy. We were seated right by the entrance to the restaurant which means we were basically in the lobby of the hotel. People coming and going from elevators within feet of our table.
Friendly servers. Good food.
The service was excellent. The atmosphere and the restaurant were beautiful.
My biggest complaint is the food. Most of it was wonderful, don't get me wrong, but we had to order multiple things until we got to one they actually had the ingredients for. Two different cocktails they couldn't make. The mushroom Appy they couldn't make. The first entree I ordered they couldn't make.
The meal I ended up with was good, but the chicken was slightly overcooked and dry.
I will probably try again because it was a good experience, but there was a lot of stuff missing from the experience as well
We went for a supper with friends to celebrate a birthday. It was super quiet and relaxing. Our waitress was fabulous, and the food was delicious. I would definitely go again.
We called and booked online to ensure our table is setup and we are expected. When we arrived at 12PM the waitress had no clue who we were and that we have a reservation and pointed to some random open tables in the back of the restaurant and told us to sit there. We booked in advance to not have to sit on three separate tables.
Good food, great craft beer. The food came out very quickly.
Great food and service, this restaurant is consistant in qualty and service. If anyone has special request always accommodated.
Very good service and a nice atmosphere. The omelette made to order was delicious. The rest of the brunch was very average but unfortunately the price wasn’t. Expensive overall.
I had used the online booking tool to reserve the high table. They had given it away to another table. One person did not get their meal and had to wait. The crust on their pizza was charred as I’m assuming it was rushed through on broil. No compensation or apology was given. Staff was slow to provide bills and additional beverages
The food was very good, not huge portions but definitely enough to fill you. I had the peach sangria which was delicious. The cheesecake dessert was also amazing.
We had a pretheatre dinner here and everything was fabulous. There was a very good beer/pizza special and we will certainly return again and again.
The buffet is going downhill every time we go there. There is less food to choose from from one reservation to the next and the price is quite expensive for what we get. The omelette chef didn’t appear to know how to make omelettes and his English was not good. All of our omelettes were runny eggs in the middle. Our waitress went to him to make us new ones. The second time he fried them all like pancakes. Didn’t add cheese and not folded in half with meat and veggies in the middle.
Much more than we expected from a "Hotel" restaurant. Service was great from the waitress to the bar staff. Food was excellent, well worth the value. This was the best meal we had while we were in town for 3 days, would definitely return here.
...excellent variety of bunch items ...great service!
Mother's Day brunch. Was terrific food and service. Food was a little cold for my taste but that is to be expected given the volume they were churning out.
Only blemish - A staff member (who wasn't working but was there w her family) rudely approached my children who were sitting at the lobby computer desk and gave them crap for sitting there and potentially "wrecking everything". We told her that the server said they could sit there and play, she said that doesn't matter and that she was "... a staff member too". Of course I didn't catch her name, but she was about 30 with dyed pink / blonde hair shoulder length in a pony tail with cheap looking tattoos (of course she has tattoos. Who doesn't these days?). We didn't appreciate her interjecting in our brunch, especially when our children were being quiet and very well behaved. Her children on the other hand were far more unruly and loud (for what it's worth). Like I said - the only blemish.
We went for the Saturday brunch buffet, and it was fantastic. Our server seemed a little scrambled, but the service was certainly decent. The buffet was outstanding, especially the bacon. I strongly recommend Wild Sage for a brunch at good value for your money.
Service was superb. Food was great. Everyone enjoyed it immensely. Nice, relaxing atmosphere.
I recently took my husband here to celebrate his birthday. He ordered the butter chicken and I ordered the rib eye steak. We both really enjoyed our meal....probably the best steak I have had in years!! A noisy table was sat next to us right after we were seated, but the waitress graciously moved us to a quieter spot upon request. Our service was also very good throughout! She brought him a lovely chocolate lava cake with a Happy Birthday piped onto the dish which was a nice touch. We had never eaten in the Wild Sage before ( although I have attended and held several events at the Hilton and enjoyed the food immensely every time)...so that is what prompted me to forego the usual choice of the Keg or Diplomat or Golfs, and try somewhere "new" for his special birthday. We will definitely eat here again.....and soon!!
Our pre-theatre meal. Everything was very good, we'll certainly come again
We were diapoointed that the restaurant has out of the Trout dish, as two of the four of us wanted to order the trout!
Dinner: Vegetarian options could be increased please. Other than salads ( which some had meat eg: bacon in Caesar) , lentils were the only option.
Typical diners had good options -
Convenient choice for hotel guests for dinner.
Breakfast: was terrific- excellent variety, service and taste!!
I had the kung pao, there was too much sauce, and was vinegary. The Dina noodles were skinny and should of been fatter.
A friend had the bibimbap, it didn’t have a lot of flavour.
The fish special and the ribs were fine.
We arrived for our reservation on time and it took them 15 minutes to put a table together for us. They made it a table for 6 when we were 7 so we had to squish in until they brought another table. The waitress I felt rushed us through the menu and did not take our drink order. Both my sister and I had to ask twice for tea and water. She did not come to check how the food was, ever. My father's eggs were so overdone he couldn't eat them and they changed the number of pancakes given without changing the menu to reflect this. They were also quite dry though they apparently came with syrup. Nice atmosphere but otherwise not a great experience. We will not be returning.
A group of 6 when out for the Fathers Day Brunch, used Open Table to book the reservation for 10AM, we arrived and about 10:30 we went up to the buffet, was not very well stocked. Waitress stopped by around 10:45 to inform us the buffet was closing so they could set up for a Father's Day Brunch. At 11AM we went back in to see the buffet and it was better with more items however we had already eaten so no one was that hungry. We did grab some deserts and when we checked out the bill was for the full buffet @$25. Not real happy as the waitress should have told us this and we would have waited until 11AM and enjoyed ourselves more. On the app when booking it could have also mentioned this so a total breakdown in communication between all parties involved.
New menu since last time we were there...fried won ton with fruit salsa was really good (not greasy), ribs were fall off the bone, steak (of the steak frites was cooked perfectly) but not wild about the plating. Service was strong and all the desserts ordered were quite good!
Service was fantastic. Food options were ok but cold. Won't go back at $24 per plate.
We each had steak, one prime rib, one New York, both cooked the way we wanted. The veggies were hot but not much of them. Good portion of mashed potato. The waitress was attentive without being bothersome. Add a before dinner drink, and one dessert, and an overall good experience was had, for just under 90 dollars.
We have visited here for quite a few Sunday brunches and family gatherings and always find the experience excellent.
The food wasn't bad but it was mediocre. The servers themselves were friendly and effective. The disappointing element was the way and timing the kitchen sent the food out. The restaurant was not busy but the dishes were sent out 3 or 4 at a time with fairly long lapses in between. If we had waited until all the plates were served before we ate as good manners dictate, those who received their plates first would have waited 37 minutes after they received their food. That is how long it took between the first and last plates to be served. Unacceptable. On the favorable side the food was hot and freshly off the grill as it came out.
Great Sunday brunch buffet, excellent service in a nice atmosphere. Very enjoyable, good food and no stress.
Food was delicious! Service needs improvement. Would benefit from staff having more training.
My family and I went to the Wild Sage for Father's Day (a Sunday eve at 5:30), and it was incredibly enjoyable. The atmosphere was quiet, the service was spot-on, and food was amazing!!! Almost everyone in our group ordered the bison burger and it was fantastic. I've been there a few times - it's perfect for an after-work drink ($4 beer happy hour!!), or a nice meal out with family or friends. 10/10.
We took our friends for their milestone year. 65th birthday. 70th birthday and their 40th anniversary. The service was a 5 star plus. The food amazing. The men said the steak was the best they have had and they have been to many restaurants.
The best was when the waiter brought our friends dessert. Chocolate cake and on the plate was written happy birthday and happy anniversary.
Thanks again. We will be back in July for my birthday
To say that this was my worst meal in Regina in 40 years is not to say enough. I was, after all, only here for 4 days, and so only had half a dozen meals out. So it is possible that there are even worse restaurants in this town--I just didn't have time to find them. It was, in fact, the worst meal that I have paid restaurant prices for in many years, anywhere. (So, not counting prisons, gas stations, airport counters, etc.) The appetizer "biscuits" were instead three sliders on insipid little buns, each with, allegedly, a different kind of meat. The three were nearly indistinguishable, although they all did seem to contain meat. They were also equally lukewarm. The main course claimed to be local fish. If from Lake Defenbaker, it was an affront to a fine former Prime Minister. The batter was the most notable feature. Approximately a quarter of an inch thick, it required repeated thrusts with my knife to break through. A large stake knife would have been more useful. The fish inside was as dry and hard as any I have had since being forced by hunger to eat reheated fish sticks in the school cafeteria many decades ago. The chips were edible. The wine, from a small selection, was drinkable. The service, as I said, was good--cheerful actually. I'm guessing the servers didn't have to eat the food.
Brought my mother here for Mother's Day. Waited a bit at the hostess stand for someone to come talk to us but it was busy. The buffet was good. Plenty of options and all quite fresh.
