About Sage - Aria
Sage is James Beard Foundation Award-wining Chef Shawn McClain’s first venture outside of Chicago. Introducing his distinctive style to ARIA, Chef McClain combines farm-to-table produce, artisanal meats & sustainable seafood with an emphasis on simple, clean flavors & seasonal ingredients. Sage's award-wining cocktail program visits America's classic libations & rewrites them with a contemporary edge through natural ingredients & limited-production boutique liquors.
The 112-seat dining room & 49-seat lounge display a seductive & comfortable elegance.

Sage - Aria Ratings and Reviews

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.

Magnificent, exquisite, incredible hardly begin to tell of the experience I had. Each bite was a treat. All the flavors worked to perfection complimented by a cozy atmosphere and a friendly and attentive staff. This should NOT be missed !!!!

Best meal we had at Aria. Nothing pretentious, everything was good. The grilled spanish octopus was very nice. They skinned it so it didn't look like I expected, but the flavor and texture was great. The heirloom tomato salad was delicious. The Maine Day Boat Scallops were a highlight and the Black Bass was excellent. Service was spot on. We walked out with a smile on our faces!

The Waygu Filet with bacon bernaise followed by the passion fruit dessert was amazing! One of my favorite meals of all time! I can't wait to come back and nice wine by the glass as reasonable prices - the Rioja Reserva was perfect with my meal.

They made us wait 10 mins for our reservation time even though they were not busy. we waited at the bar for drinks until the reservation came. We were ignored for a bit, then, ordered then, our table was ready. The bartender said to us, we should just re-order when we sit down, he didn't want to move the check. An expensive place needs to improve on customer experience.

The menu is small but has a a very good selection and the culinary experience is excellent. Very good ambience and good for our gathering of business colleagues who wanted to meet for an evening of good conversation, wine and good. the only negative was our waiter who was a bit unfriendly and not terribly efficient.

We had the wine pairing menu - everything was on-point and delicious. The service was impeccable, and the pairings were amazing. The seating was a bit weird - my seat had really high arms, which was a little awkward, but aside from that everything was perfect.

Went here for a first anniversary dinner before a show. It was Monday 7.30 and pretty quiet in there.
Staff were all friendly and pleasant. Food good - solid four star but definitely not five star.
The room is very dark and romantic but was a little cold. Quite a sophisticated looking room, definitely good for a romantic occasion.
Overall just a little disappointed that the food was not quite as sophisticated as the setting.

Had the opportunity to dine at Sage and cannot begin to express what an amazing meal this was. The staff was so attentive, the menu was innovative, the food was the best I've ever tasted and the absinthe cart made the meal feel like no other I've ever had.
I highly recommend the scallops. The menu changes seasonally but this is a signature item that stays year-round.

I've been in the restaurant and wine industry for to 25 years and so has girlfriend, and this was one of the best dinners I've ever had, from top to bottom. Our Server James was a knowledgeable, and very cool, unpretentious. Christine the Somm was a total treat. Awesome experience, the food was absolutely spectacular. Can't wait to go back.

This is a pre fix menu by courses. $100/150 per person. Wine accompaniment is $100 per person extra. The place was dead except for a few tables of wealthy Asian families. I don't see how they can stay in business as most people don't want this type of menu. We left.

Sage was a very nice restaurant, great ambiance and excellent service. Everyone was very attentive and made sure we had everything that we wanted. Couple little extras they bring you prior to the first course which were very savory. The one down side was that you had to order 2 courses. The smaller plate/appetizer (beef tartare), while incredibly tasty, was too big and rich for one person to eat by themselves and then still have room for the main course. The sea bass was good but the scallops tasted like they were dredged/cooked in salt. For the price, there are other places we enjoy just as much. Worth trying once, but probably won't go back again given all the other options available at Aria and in Vegas that are in the same cost range.

Simply a wonderful experience overall. We did the 7-course tasting menu with the wine pairings - the food was just excellent; every course was beautifully executed with some real creativity. Each of the wine pairings was wonderful on its own, but also perfectly complemented each course. The service was brilliant - totally professional and knowledgeable, while friendly and approachable also. Overall, just a fantastic experience - not an inexpensive one, but totally worth it.

This once great restaurant has gone considerably downhill. Of the three dishes that I had only one was fabulous, the foie gras appetizer. At these prices everything should be fabulous. I found the Octopus boring. Far better can be had just about anywhere, especially Giada and Bottiglia. The pork entree was also nothing special. The place was nearly empty on a holiday weekend. Someone is not paying attention.
