Sage Room - Harvey's Lake Tahoe Ratings and Reviews

The Sage room in Harvey's casion is about as old school as you can get for a steakhouse. Lots of red meat, steak and lobster, and classic entrees make it seem like you're back in the mid 60s. Food is expensive, yet delicious. Appetizers run about $20 per; the GF and I split a wedge salad and my 12 oz. NY prime was $75. GF had petit filet and lobster for $85. Desserts are classic old-school; I hadn't seen cherries jubilee on a menu for at least 20 years. We had another classic for dessert, bananas Foster, prepared tableside with all the requisite whooshing flambé.
They have a full bar; drinks are good and strong. The wine list is good, but limited; if you're looking for a good Bordeaux to go with your carni-fest, there aren't a lot of options like you would find in newer steak houses, particularly in Vegas.
Ambience is understated; there's no music, live or canned, and it's very easy to have a conversation. Lighting is good and you feel intimate without thinking you're in a cave with a birthday cake candle.
Service is top-notch, as you would expect, not overly-zealous and very professional. I imagine the waitstaff and maître'd have been there forever.
It ain't cheap, but good casino restaurants rarely are. Yet if you're looking to pass a couple leisurely hours with good, high-style comfort food, this is as good a place as I've found.

Food was great. Jose was very good. However, once Hal the wait person knew we weren't going to have a HUGE bill, he was not very pleasant. THIS WAS OUR 44th Annivresary and his lack of attention and unpleasantness did NOT give us a memorable experience.

Sage Room -- Where the Diners are on the Menu!
Special Birthday dinner for hubby.....traditional steakhouse menu sounded perfect, and the Sage Room delivered. Entertaining and well trained wait staff (one of the waiters has worked here 40 years) prepare Steak Diane and salads table-side, dress your baked potato when it's delivered, and the steaks were perfectly prepared. Wine list is adequate, could use some additions.
During the hour and a half of our enjoyable dinner, we were aware of the high noise level (perhaps some acoustic adjustments could help this?), but had no way of knowing we were actually part of the menu for the FLEAS living under our table. Wearing long slacks and sandals resulted in too many bites to count on both legs, all the way to my knees! Still itching, I phoned the hotel today to let them know, and the housekeeping department is asking Engineering to do something about it. I hope they do, but in the meantime, ladies, wear your tall boots to dinner here!

Sage Restaurant is great! We celebrated birthdays and our waiter Mark made the dinner even better with his great attitude and jovial demeanor. I recommend the Sage for any occasion, but even better if planning a special occasion!

I have been enjoying this staple of South Lake Tahoe for 45 years. It is the only fine-dining restaurant anywhere near Stateline that has remained in large part to its original concept. Always best if you can enjoy it when you can take a leisurely stroll "home" to a room in the hotel but a wonderful way to celebrate a special occasion or have a very romantic, "old-school" beautiful, classic experience. Now, if only they could bring back the Top of the Wheel, Ron Rose, ahhh, well, we have this .... Thank you

We were a little concerned about eating at the Sage Room due to its location and dark ambiance! So glad we did! First, the service was amazing. The staff is expertly trained in unique table side delivery of salad, drinks and dessert. Very impressive and fun to watch. Our food was excellent. The historic interior - first casino on the strip - was beautiful. YOU should go! We'll definitely go back.

This is our go to restaurant while in Lake Tahoe. The food is amazing. Steaks are always tender and cooked to perfection. The fish is fresh and wonderfully prepared. Banana Foster prepared table side, perfect ending.

This was a really excellent meal. Everything was prepared properly, and the service was friendly and professional. The place is like a time warp to the cocktail era, in a good way, with all the table-side flambé preparations you could ask for.

Have dined in this restaurant quite a few times over a span of 38 years and have always loved it. My wife and I in fact worked and met at Harveys some 39 years ago (and were married at Edgewood). Which is why we look forward to celebrating our anniversary at the Sage Room. While we have always been aware that it is expensive to dine there, the quality of food and service always made the cost justifiable - especially for a special occasion. For the first time ever, this was certainly not the case! Our cocktails, salad, and both entrees were edible at best. The only bright stars were the escargot and crème brulee. We are not the type to complain so, no, we did not say anything. Also, since we informed them of the occasion and how long we've been dining here, we would have thought they would at least offer to treat us to a dessert. Needless to say, we were not pleased or impressed with our visit to the Sage Room!

I've been here many times. The food is always great and the setting is perfect. I don't continue to come back for value. While the food is excellent, the prices are very high but the experience is worth it for us.

This was not our first time here, rather loved it so much have come back again and again.
This is an "old fashion" steakhouse...with all the best of a classic. Menu is excellent, service was focused on attention to details. A booth was requested on our reservations and was waiting for us when we arrived. I will say as a vegetarian, they did have something on the menu for me as well as steak and lobster for my hubby who enjoyed his quiet birthday celebration!

Been at this restaurant many times, it never fails to impress me. From the menu, wine list, pre-dinner cocktail in the bar, and the excellent servers, everything was perfect. Anytime I get up to Lake Tahoe, I eat at the Sage Room--always special and never a disappointment! I'll be back.

I come here for special occasions as it is a little pricey. But they continue to be the best place to have that special dinner. Our waiter was exceptional, always there when needed but not hovering. And the food is A+. I couldn't give it a higher rating.

We requested a "quiet table for 2" and the Host tried to seat us at a table looking out into the casino and next to the bar. We asked if we could please have a different table and he informed us that all of the booths were reserved. Well....we didn't request a booth. He did "allow us" to pick a different table and we found a nice table for 2 that was further into the restaurant and very quiet. The wait staff were outstanding so that made up for the lousy treatment from the Host.

Food was delicious but the service was neglectful. It was obvious that once we said we were not there to gamble, we were pretty much ignored. Next time we will try a different seakhouse, we will not go back to The Sage Room again.

I have been coming here for over fifty years and was very disappointed. I have always enjoyed the prime rib but this time it was dry and appeared to have been heated in a micro wave. The salad consisted of wilted lettuce. We were very dsappointed and decided that this was are last trip.

The food is always cooked to perfection. . If you like old-school dining -hot plates, child salad forks, table side service completed with an atmosphere of flambe's then look no further.. except if you want a high-stakes poker right out the front.

We have been going to the Sage Room for years and we have never been disappointed. We started with the spinach salad for two - 5 stars. I had the rack of lamb and would give it 4.5 stars. My wife had the bison again 4.5 stars. Great wine and our waiter Teodoro was 5 stars.
We'll be back...

A steakhouse that is a throwback to the 60s - waiters in tuxes, food rolled out on carts, dim lighting and big portions. Had a fun time, but the menu is expensive, so unless you're flush with newly won cash, there are better restaurants in the area, especially at or below this price point.

We were not greeted by the hostess. She simply looked at me ( dead pan). I told her we had a reservation, again nothing. I asked if she wanted my name, again no verbalization. She simply walked us to our table. I would hope someone trains the young lady quickly. Other circumstances I'd have walked out. Escargot had no garlic, lots of butter though. French onion soup delish! The porterhouse the best we've had in years. Banana's Foster, ambrosia!
