Sage Room - Harvey's Lake Tahoe Ratings and Reviews
The service is quite nice. We had a reservation and they took us in immediately. The waiters are nice.
The food is overall OK. I ordered scallop and was disappointed. Somehow the scallop tastes bitter. My husband ordered stake and it was not that impressive either. One thing bothered me the most is the dish we ordered for my son. It was said kids sized pasta but what we got was a huge bowl. He finished maybe 1/5 of it and it was such a waste. Considering the food quality, the price is way too high. We have had many expensive dinners before. With $200+, I expect much higher quality.
I have seen some people ordered desert and it looks really good. Not sure how good they taste though.
The entire experience was exquisite. The staff are top notch...elegant, but not snobby. We had the Steak Diane and Beef Wellington. Both were expertly prepared and melt-in-your-mouth scrumptious. The Steak Diane was flambéed table-side. Perfection! Highly recommend!!
We love the Sage Room. We've been dining there since the early 70"s. Many good memories. The service, the food , the ambiance, OUTSTANDING!!! Love the maitre D, he was so gracious, and seated me immediately -- & we were 1/2 an hr. late. (however I called, we were stuck in snow traffic) My husband & brother -in-law, Ralph Barsi are Craps champions! Love all of you!
While staying in Lake Tahoe for vacation, we celebrated my sons 22nd birthday with a memorable dinner at the Sage Room. Enjoyed a prime rib dinner with baked potato, vegetables and a desert of Bananas Foster. Did not disappoint with excellent service, Frank Sinatra-dimly-lit ambiance and delicious melt-in-your-mouth steak. The desert gets prepared at your table by the waiter- with more flames than a Hawaiian fire dance. A slice of chocolate cake with a lighted candle and a cheer of "happy birthday" made the evening complete.
The food was as to be expecteded for the price range, excellent steak cooked perfectly with solid sides. One in our party ordered the elk chop which was extremely tender and well prepared. The highlight of the meal was our waiter Hal and his assistant who prepared our desert, both were very professional and attentive. The table side prep they do for the deserts is top notch! There was a couple who came in just to order desert (they mentioned they were having dinner there the following g night), that says a lot in my opinion.
The server was not very attentive. We had to ask for certain things that were automatically give to other guest/tables. We asked for our steaks to be medium and we got medium rare. The servers helper did not know approximately how many glass of wine are in a half bottle.
I originally booked for wrong night, they graciously found us a table even though they were busy. We had salmon, sea bass and lamb. All were cooked to perfection. I have dined here numerous times in the past. We have also enjoyed the table side preparation of some of their flaming steak and deserts, its a neat visual treat if you are in the mood for that particular menu item. Lighting is dark and can be quiet and romantic depending on which table you are seated at.
As good as the food/atmosphere are, its only topped by Evan (our food server) that we request each time we go. He is the consummate professional who is very knowledgeable in regards to wine and food. However, if you are in the mood for some levity and wit, he is your guy. He is the jewel of the restaurant.
Would never go back... the food was awful and service was less than ideal! Steak was tough, mashed potatoes came from a box, their wine selection is poor for a high end restaurant. Overall, I'd give it a 1 star. $350 for 2 people.. I'd rather eat at Ruth's Chris or any other chain steak house.
We had dinner with another couple on Christmas...expensive but quite a treat,especially since we ordered both the Caesar Salad and Spinach Salad, prepared table side... and the cherries jubilee, also table side, flambe and all! Great filet and Outstanding French Onion Soup!
I decided to treat myself on Christmas to dinner here! fantastic! Service and ambiance wonderful. INhad the scallops as appetizer, and the twin lobster tails as the main course. Also, korbel champagne from the wine list. Everything delicious,. It is pricey. You only get 2 scallops for the 18$. Delicious but not worth that price tag. But if you want to splurge this is the place! I definately will go back on an important occasion!
We came to the Sage Room for a dinner and a show. I had the Beef Wellington, which melted in my mouth and my wife had the Steak and Lobster and enjoyed it immensely. They accommodated my 5 year old son with pasta with Alfredo sauce. The show included the wonderful warm spinach salad and and the bananas fosters dessert prepared at our table with a nice fire show (alcohol induced flame from the gas stove). The service was spectacular and much better than a number of Michelin rated restaurants I've been to before [they even added more of a fire show to impress my son]. Cost is $$$ but I wouldn't hesitate to come back for special occasions
Food was outstanding. Service was on the slow side. The table next to us continued to video with their phone and the flash on which was right in our direct line of sight and at times blinding. For the setting of this restaurant and price, I'd hope that the staff could explain this is rude and disturbing to other patrons, since the patrons themselves cannot figure this out.
Service was very good and food was good. Prices are highly inflated and poor value for the money. We made reservations more than a week in advance and expected a booth which was not available when we arrived. We do not plan to return unless prices are reduced by at least 30%.
The service was not very good. I waited ten minutes to ask for a drink and in the middle of dinner I ran out of water not to get a refill until I was finished with my meal 15 minutes later. The drink I finally ordered came 15 minutes after I ordered it as well.
The food was great! Oysters were amazing. Over all for the price the service was poor. We had dinner here for our wedding and came back for outlet anniversary. We will not be coming back next year or to the sage room if at all again
As always, the food at the Sage Room was amazing. I had the special which was a Cajun spiced steak and it was delicious. I have food allergies and usually end up with a meal that is missing all the "good" stuff on the plate. But the staff made sure I had an excellent meal. It was for my birthday and the dinner made the day even more special. My husband always orders the French onion soup as it is probably the best he has ever had. It is a great atmosphere for a special event and a quieter more dignified atmosphere. The staff is extra friendly and helpful and really goes out of their way to make you feel special . We had Teddy and Cy and we give them two thumbs up for being top notch waiters. Can't wait to go back.
Thanksgiving is a tough holiday to eat away from home, we had a party of five and wanted a traditional turkey dinner. For $48 a person we did expect a close to perfect traditional thanksgiving meal but it fell short by traditional standards. The turkey was a bit dry, mashed potatoes were hard and lacking creaminess. The sides were okay. The starter, corn chowder was the best course.
Sage room has amazing options on their regular menu that we should have opted for, however the experience was great, service was amazing and the ambiance was ideal.
Our choice of sparking wine was perfect.
We're sure to come here every time we fly to Tahoe. We've always had wonderful food and service. We were here for Thanksgiving and it was amazing. The Thanksgiving dinner tasted like it came right out of Grandma's kitchen. Sharon always serves us with impeccable professionalism. If this restaurant was on our coast, we would dine here at least twice a month. We love it here!
OVER THE YEARS THE "SAGE ROOM" HAS BEEN VERY CONSISTANT. IF YOU WANT A GOOD MEAL WITH NO SURPRISES THIS IS THE PLACE TO BE. THE FOOD IS GOOD AND IT IS VERY RELAXING TO SIT BACK AND HAVE A QUIET CONVERSATION . WE HAVE NEVER BEEN DISSAPOINTED. OPEN TABLE MAKES THE RESERVATION PROCESS SO MUCH EASIER, SEE YOU NEXT MONTH.
Lobster bisque had chunks of white powder, probably arrowroot powder. Not good at all. Steak was very good quality meat, but not cooked to order, it all seemed to be cooked the same. Disappointing. Restaurant did not live up to past experiences! This used to be the best steak house in the area, but no longer it seems. Very expensive for what you get.
