Sage - Aria Ratings and Reviews

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.

A wonderful experience. Not your traditional dining. Must be prepared to try food outside of your normal comfort zone and pay a rather hefty price. My wife and I split the three course and added a dessert. This left us in a good light but full spot overall, but I can imagine for many this would not be enough. Absolutely would recommend, but not something I would frequent.
I took my two younger sisters to Sage for a birthday dinner, and we had an amazing time. The server was patient in explaining menu items that were outside our normal comfort zone. The scallops were possibly the best thing I've ever eaten. I would dine there way too often if I didn't live in Texas. Thank you, Sage!
Was it the best meal we had in Las Vegas? No, but it was really good. A great, but non traditional Old Fashion to start, then on to the meal. My wife had the two course - fennel artichoke salad and scallops. Myself the four course - tartare, octopus, pork and lamb. The scallops were by far the highlight, as was the steak tartare and the fennel salad. The octopus was ok, but was overpowered by the chorizo. The pork was fine, but nothing special. The lamb was very good, but not that memorable. Overall, a lovely evening and the service was outstanding. Would I go back? Sure, but it not on the list of Vegas must eats.

Upon arrival, we were recommended Sage by a few different people we talked to, as well as friends who had just visited Vegas weeks before. When looking it up, it happened to be in our hotel, Aria, so we gave it a shot. Bull's-eye!
We were a group of 6; 5 ordered the 2 course and 1 ordered the 3. I would absolutely recommend the octopus, scallops/, veal cheek (if you like horseradish), oxtail, and the Wagyu beef. Being from Austin, we're used to great food, and this was magnificent.
The service was spectacular as well. James, our server, was wonderful. He made recommendations when asked, had a good sense of humor, and made us feel more than welcome.
I would absolutely recommend this place if you're looking for amazing food at a good price.

This dinner was to celebrate a milestone birthday for me and the doctoral graduation of my niece; there were six of us overall. The short version is that I cannot imagine anyplace better or an experience that could have outdone this dinner at Sage in all regards. It was a celebration that all of us will remember and cherish for years to come. It has also set the bar at a daunting height for future celebrations to measure up to.
The attendees each have different dietary preferences (e.g. vegetarian, vegan, only eat poultry/fish) and allergies (i.e. gluten and dairy). The waiter and staff were not only tolerant but most accommodating and beyond that, helpful both in terms of suggestions/advice and in checking with the kitchen to validate requests. Only one of the six attendees did not customize the courses in some manner. Yet all meals were expertly made, presented and served. Each scrumptious in their own right.
The serving staff was quite attentive yet not intrusive which is a difficult balance to achieve, but one which the staff at Sage has mastered. The dining room is very attractive and quiet even when filled.
To reiterate the memorable events which this dinner commemorated were made all the more special by the Sage.
We had wanted to try Sage for a few years and decided that this was the year to do it for our anniversary. We were NOT disappointed. Started at the bar for some cocktails ant the bartender was helpful with our selections...a Blueberry-Habenero cocktail for wifey and a good Old-Fashioned for myself. Both were excellent. After we were seated, we were served complimentary glasses of champagne for our anniversary...which was acknowledged a few times...very nice touch. I added the caviar course and it was fantastic. Both had the 3 course menu which was more than enough. Started with the king crab and baby kale salad, then moved on to grilled octopus and foie gras brulee...all were fantastic. For mains we had the scallops and veal cheeks...one word...WOW. Desserts were also fantastic. Would highly recommend Sage for a special occasion. Starting to save now for my next visit...
What can you say about Sage, Vegas' best! The food is simply insanely good. The octopus salad , scallops with oxtail a the veal cheeks were over the top. I have been coming to Vegas for years and this is the 1 restaurant I was ensure I frequent. The wine list is equally spectacular.
Great food, great service!
We've dined at Sage before and brought family that was visiting Vegas.
Everything was superb. We were greeted like friends, and service was excellent.
The food was even better than last time we dined here. We ordered the grilled beets, Spanish octopus, roasted veal cheeks, grilled Iberico pork, black bass, and veal cheeks.
Everything was cooked to perfection and the plating was beautiful.
We shared the chocolate tartin and semifreddo desserts and they were a fine finish to a great meal.

I got there early before crowds arrived so it probably would be noisier later on. Food and service excellent. Some interesting options on the menu I would recommend include poached egg and foie gras brûlée. Considering the quality the price is reasonable by Vegas Strip standards. I will be back.
Fabulous meal and ambiance
My boyfriend and I came for a date night dining experience while in Vegas. Our time at Sage was SO remarkable. We each chose the 3 course option, but chose different options and everything was absolutely amazing! From the foie gras to the slow poached egg and the scallops, everything was on point and we were quite surprised with how great a wine by the glass list there was in addition to the bottle list. Will come back again and again!

The overall experience was beautiful. The wait staff were adorable. I ordered an old fashioned to start. There was a palate cleanser of a soup that I can't recall the taste. Had a small sliver of fried onion on the top. It was delicious. I did the 2-course meal. I ordered the foie gras brûlée. That was to die for. Very creamy and rich. Notes of strawberries and of course foie gras and melted/hardened sugar. Then I had the braised veal cheeks. I ordered a red wine from the specialist. mourchon cotes du rhone. Asked her to pair it with the cheeks. And it was excellent. Of course it was my birthday and I ordered the chocolate torte that had notes of blackberries. The staff brought it out with a lit candle and happy birthday written on the plate ever so delicately. Overall, great experience. Especially for my first time.
The menu listed off this site is not in line with the menu at the restaurant. The menu on this site was about $30 per entree. At the restaurant it was almost $96 for a single person to eat. This was WAY more expensive than was expected. We had drinks and left for another more affordable restaurant.
