The tasting menu was excellent, and the staff was attentive. We added on the farm egg to our tasting menu. It was as delicious as other diners said. Our only complaint was that the wine list was crazy expensive. Very few bottles under three digits in price...

I would give his restaurant a "fair" rating. I think the bar is excellent - if you like bourbon they have probably the widest range of bourbons available. The service staff was very good - both the bartender & our waiter. The food was good but not great - overpriced for the value. And the ambiance/atmosphere was fair. It didn't have the electric feel you'd want in a restaurant where you're paying those kind of prices. I likely wouldn't go back particularly in Las Vegas where there are lots of other options.

We had a great time here for our last night in Vegas. Finally, good service!! And the food was quite good - not mind blowing, but very good. Though that said the Fois Gras Candy Bar is very unique and so delicious. Also recommend the Cucumber Cocktail. I would give it 4 1/2 stars. I would return.

The food and service were fabulous. We had the lamb neck parpadelle and the octopus as starters. They were both equally delicious. My husband had the veal cheeks and I had the turbot fish. They were both good but the veal cheeks were exceptional! Cocktails were extraordinarily good. We had an old fashion and a sazerac. Yum! I would highly recommend his restaurant.

I went to Sage with my husband. There was a short wait for our table so we ordered cocktails at the bar and they were excellent. Once seated, we decided to order a multiple appetizers instead of ordering entrees. We had the farm egg, foie gras, beef tartare, octopus and sweet breads. Everything was excellent. Wines were a little overpriced but that is to be expected in Vegas. Service was attentive and the waiter was helpful in selecting dishes.

The restaurant was beautiful. The server was knowledgeable and helpful. For starters I had the poached egg dish, and it was unbelievably delicious. Those are the high points. For the first 30 minutes we were rarely alone at the table, servers, water, bread, check ins, etc. After our appetizer plates were removed, not a single person came by the table for at least 30 minutes. Entrees finally arrived and they were good. I had ordered the grilled skirt steak, medium. Parts of it were perfect, parts of it were charred. It pretty much encapsulated the unevenness of the experience; the first third of the evening was superb, the last 2/3 of the evening were average, at best. One last thing, the music was too loud and had a percussion line that was repeated for (literally) 15 minutes at a time. It was like water torture, a sound that just repeated over and over and over.

I wanted to have a fine dinner with my wife to celebrate her birthday. I expected a little more quieter and romantic ambiance, but it was more like business dinner place. Our table was too close to the next tables and we were able to listen to their conversation and I am sure they were able to listen to ours.
Food wise, we started OK with my Kusshi Oysters and her Kabocha Squash. The oysters were delicious with perfect amount of sauce. Her squash salad was good in both presentation and taste.
For the main, I ordered Spice Crusted Venison Loin and my wife ordered Black Bass.
Two things. My loin was just too salty. I could't believe that they serve such a dish with such a strong salty taste. I had to change to Grilled Skirt Steak, but then it was little too late to turn the evening mood around. However, my wife enjoyed the Black Bass.
Don't expect white table linen because they use cheap plastic table setter and i have noticed that their silverware need to be changed. They are just used up.
Overall, we had an ok dinner, but with a little disappointment. Manager came by to apologize about my main dish and he told me that he will take care of us next time without asking my name or contact. I wonder how he is going to remember me and take care of us next time.
But it's ok because most likely my wife and I will not go back to this place.

While the ambiance and service were amazing, the food left something to be desired - especially at these prices. The "legendary" foie gras was a too-rich, too-sweet way to start a meal. More like a dessert. And the fabled cocktails lacked subtlety -- either too sweet or too smoky to be enjoyable as a kick off to a big dinner. The scallops are very good, though the heavy fried cubes of oxtail were not complementary. The chicken was adequate but not remarkable, and did not emerge from the kitchen hot. What we will say is our waiter was amazing -- jovial and attentive. He made the evening, as did a lovely birthday request fulfilled. We really appreciated that attention to detail.

Had the tasting menu and it was excellent while my companion had the sea bass that she enjoyed. Sommelier ( Catherine) did a wonderful job advising us on a wine that worked well with our meals. Service was perfect and timing kept the meal going at a nice pace not rushed but you were not waiting on the food either. Room was noisy the night we were there. No dress code.

I made the reservation months! in advance, received confirmation and even a reminder on the date in question. We arrive to the restaurant to find it CLOSE. Hostesses at nearby restaurants in the Hotel (Aria) told us that they no longer open on Sundays!.
Obviously we had no trouble finding another restaurant at the hotel and had a great time. BUT!!! still....

The appetizers and the service were great and met our expectations. The entrees were unbalanced in their flavors and seasoning. I had a dish with a curry sauce that was too salty while the flavor of little neck clams were completely lost. My wife's entree was similarly inconsistent with respect to appys vs her entree. It was surprising given the restaurant's reviews. Had the restaurant not been in close comparison with our other visits to Serrano's, Bardot Brasserie and Joel Robuchon our experience would've been better but all three of those outperformed Sage on the nights we visited them.

We are discerning diners who have eaten in many michelin star restaurants. This chef has to be one of the best anywhere, his personality and attention to detail came through in the food and it was evident that he really cares about what comes out of his kitchen. The service was second to none, we had a more expensive meal in Vegas that did not come anywhere near Sage in any respect.

One of the best meals I've ever had. The food was outstanding (sweetbreads, roasted carrots, 'secreto' pork, etc.), the friendly sommelier helped me choose between a few different wines I was considering, the service was very attentive without being too much, and the desserts were fantastic. The volume level was quiet enough that we could hold a conversation but loud enough that you knew everyone was having a good time and enjoying themselves. I would wholeheartedly recommend Sage and will definitely return on my next trip to Las Vegas!

Hands down Sage is the best place to eat French or Farm to Table food in Vegas. Yes you can go Picasso, Twist or La Cirque and yes the ambiance is better, the service is fancier but the food is not. The Scallops and Veal cheeks are just outstanding. The Octopus was okay not great, it used to be much better. And sit at the bar and talk to the bartenders they make some serious crazy fun drinks.

Food was amazing. Service was good, but not exceptional. The server seemed like he was new. I do recommend going to this place. I have tried most of the entrees and would recommend the foie gras brûlée and the imperico pork dish. If you want something light I would order the scallops. For dessert you must try the foie gras candy bar delicious.
