Teddy was an awesome waiter who took care of us very well on our folks 35 wedding anniversary dinner. Food was perfect as always
Excellent food, excellent service, great ...
Excellent food, excellent service, great bar and wine list. This is an old-fashioned steak house with top notch food, atmosphere and service. From our cocktails to appetizers to salad made at your table along with our entrees and the bananas foster dessert which was also prepared at our table, this is a must for special occasion dining. The menu may be pricier than some of the other restaurants around, but I guarantee that it is well worth it!

My daughter and I went for her 13th birthday and the food was fabulous! The service was phenomenal Teddy was our waiter and he is great. The noise level is pretty loud so if you want something more on the quiet side I would recommend another restaurant but other than that it can't be beat. You definitely need to get all the tableside preparations i.e., like bananas Foster , café Ole, and the Caesar salad.
What a Disaster
The Sage Room is a restaurant that we have gone to many times in the past, although not recently. In the past, our family has enjoyed the food at this restaurant. We can no longer state that. When we requested "prime rib" for the three of us, the waiter suggested that we might want to order the rib eye steak instead, as we would like it much better. I ordered "Veal Oscar" and it was not good. The rib eyes that the other two ordered were good, but outrageous in price . I can only wonder what the prime rib would have been, as the waiter really discouraged us from ordering that item. We will never return to this over priced restaurant with mediocre food.
Sad! Would not recommend for any occasion!
Not the good place to eat that it once was. The rib eye steak was a mediocre cut of meat. The caesar salad was less than superb.

This is one of the loveliest views in Tahoe. The food was superb.

Very small portions the soup is called the potato was cold! No lobster in the lobster best
Good food great service
A friend recommended this and while it's a bit tired as far as décor goes and very dark inside so that it's hard to see very much. I can say however the service was outstanding. My wedge salad was one of the best I've ever had but my Sage steak although cooked to perfection had no taste. It was so weird I've never eaten a NY steak with no taste. The ones we bought from Safeway for dinner while we were here visiting had better flavor. Don't believe the meat was grass fed as that is what we usually eat at home and it is always tasty.
Ordered the oysters rockafeller, shrimp cocktail and crab cake with an amazing cab wine!
Have eaten at most of the Ceasars Steak Houses across the country . This was near the bottom of the list . French Onion soup was a decent serving , yet was not very tasty. Prime rib was not seadoned, and very chewy . Sure have had better prime across this country. Glad that we didn't have to pay for the meameal, since it was on Ceasars . Won't go back, even to use our celebration free dinners .
not quiet or intimate
We came for our anniversary and because of the reviews we figured it would be a perfect place. Boy were we wrong! It was loud and the service was just "ok." Unfortunately we got sat next to a group of guys who were loudly spouting off vulgar things. The whole restaurant could hear them. We told our waiter about it and he shrugged it off, without offering to move us or asking them to stop with the obscenities. For a bill that was around $170 for 2 people, I expected more.
Our server and busser was very attentive throughout the meal.
Our 10th year.
On par with four star steakhouses in any major city.
Frozen in time, and not aging well
This restaurant has special memories for me from 22 years ago, but unfortunately the memories aged better than the restaurant did. The service was incredibly slow and the wait staff looked unhappy to be there. They seemed to be going through the motions and not enjoying their work very much. The ambiance and decor were quite old and not well maintained. The food was just not good. The best caesar salad that I've ever had was prepared tableside in 1994, but something got lost along the way and this food this time was just boring and in dire need of an introduction to the 21st century with fresh ingredients. I had the Chilean Sea Bass, and it was too large and too thick and cooked until achieving the texture of leather.
Excellent service and food.
Our waiters were absolutely wonderful and the food was excellent.
What a steak house should be
This is the kind of steak house Sinatra would have loved. The tableside prep service is excellent. The wine list extensive. The food is delicious. Makes me think "Classic"

We have been dinning at the Sage Room for 25 years or more. It's always an amazing dinner and great service. They always treat us like we are special.
A Favorite Classic That Still Shines!
The Sage room décor and ambience goes back decades, and it still stands as one of the best upscale dining experiences around Lake Tahoe. From the tuxedo clad waiters, to the flaming dishes prepared tableside, the entire experience screams out class. The food selection, preparation and service are all excellent...as they should be, the price is not cheap, but very reasonable for what you get! Our Bay area friends will think this is quite the deal...and it is!Sage
Great Dining experience!
We have gone to the Sage Room every time we are in Tahoe and it is always a highlight of our trip. Great service and exceptional food. The Steak Diane is to die for! As is the Banana Foster for two.

This is the absolute best restaurant in south Lake Tahoe. I've been coming here from the Bay Area for over 25 years and it is by far the best meal and service you will get
We eat here almost every time we're in Tahoe. This Thursday evening it was a relatively light crowd but it took an hour to get 5 steaks. This despite other later arrivals at tables around us getting served first. The kids were getting impatient and hungrier. Servers were very nice and accomodating as usual. Not returning if these lengthy delays become a trend.
BEST Rib Eye!
Sage Room is a wonderful restaurant with a great menu and exceptional service. While a tax pricey, I suggest one get the french onion soup and the mesculin salad table side and share an entree. The shrimp with mushroom risotto is awesome and there Rib Eye is out of this world good. Again, expensive but if it's a special occasion, go for it!
Great old-school steakhouse
If you long for old-school steakhouse atmosphere and classic dishes like oysters Rockefeller and table-side Caesar salad then the Sage a Room is for you. On this night they had a bone-in ribeye that was to die for! Service is attentive and professional. My only complaint is they seem to be trying to modernize the menu (blackberry demiglace?) Just tell them to hold the sauce and go for all that beef taste!
The dinner was great and the service was excellent! We had Thomas as our waiter and he was awesome!
Not what we expected
Three people, no drinks and bill was over 400. Ordered med rare porterhouse, came med well. Lobster had no taste. This place used to be the place for steak in Tahoe, 20 years ago, not any more. I do not mind paying 400 dollars for dinner for three people, but would expect much better food. Will not go again, very disappointed.
Sage Room old school steakhouse
Whenever we are in Tahoe and want a special meal we go to the Sage room. It's the last piece of the Harvey gross error that has been unchanged all these years. Do not go if you are concerned about cost this is all about the food. Our service was a bit lacking this trip due to a large group that showed up just after we arrived. My wife's main course had to be sent back because it had been prepared incorrectly. The problem was fixed quickly and both our meals were fabulous.
From the moment we arrived we were treated like Royalty. The drinks were perfect. The spinach salad made at tableside was the best I've ever had. Best of all were the scallops. All was prepared perfectly with a 2012 St. Francis Cabernet. We can't wait to return for another experience.

Most of the food was fantastic. We weren't a fan of the beef wellington, but that could have just been us. Husband didn't think the frog legs were cooked very well, but I liked them. Our server Sharon was great, but then about half way through, another server also started to come to our table and he was overbearing. The ambiance was not as good as I was hoping for. It was pretty crowded, close tables, and noisy. We were hoping for a more quiet and romantic place. It is VERY expensive.
AVERAGE QUALITY, OVER PRICED FOR PRODUCT RECEIVED
We usually do SAGE during a ski holiday and celebrate my birthday with a nice steak. On 2-22, we were promptly seated by a nice hostess and beverage & food service process began promptly. The appetizer oysters rockafeller appeared fairly quickly and were tasty. There was a lull before the caesar salad for two...flavor was OK, the sliced romaine pieces were not green and fresh appearing. There was quite another lull before ribeye steak was presented. We ordered rare plus, and it was more like medium-rare, medium. That would have been OK, but the steak was just warm...and not sizzling hot off the grill. Likewise for the mushrooms and creamed spinach...luke warm, instead of hot. I guess we should have expressed our concerns to our waiters...but we did not. Total price for 2 including tax and tip was $193.85. We took the leftovers home...and the heated spinach, mushrooms, and regrilled steak were much better the next night. Lesson learned...let the wait staff know immediately and send it back for re-do. I think the food must have been waiting on the counter too long...and cooled off. A steak from Ruths Chris is SIZZLING when delivered, and the plate is HOT. Different approach...better results. I was at Mortons today for lunch. Steak was served HOT. Maybe next time we can be more assertive about our expectations....for the price....it should be perfect.
Sage Room at Harvey's
My friend and I have been going to Lake Tahoe every February for over 20 years. The last 3 years we have had our final dinner at the Sage Room. The restaurant to me is a throwback to the classic casino era in Lake Tahoe. The formally attired waiters, the table side food prep and the classic menu items all make this a very special place in Lake Tahoe. I recommend this place without any reservation. The Caesar salad and Steak Diane are not to be missed.
Old school standby's like table-side Cae ...
Old school standby's like table-side Caesar salad, steak Dianne, chateaubriand, cherries jubilee and bananas foster are what make The Sage Room shine. Our group ordered chateaubriand, jalapeño rib-eye and steak Dianne. The chateaubriand was cooked perfectly but the steak Dianne although served in a yummy table-side prepared sauce was not an ideal cut. The rib-eye was tasty but the chateaubriand blew the other preparations away. Also, the old chateau preparation which was brought out on a cutting board with the vegetables roasted along side (instead of pre-plated and steamed) was even better. The Sage Room has such a nice warm cozy atmosphere. I would definitely recommend it.
Sage Room at Harveys South Lake Tahoe, NV
Sage Room food is incredible. We shared the Chateaubriand which was to die for. Restaurant is pricey, especially for wine. Atmosphere is OK, seating is a little crowded. Lots of very nice entrees prepared at your table. Would definitely recommend.
12 year wedding anniversary/valentines celebration
The evenings special night was fantastic. The Maitre'd Ozzie Sanchez was friendly and sat us at a romantic booth in the corner for our special occasion. I loved presenting my wife the long stem rose, the MGMT team thought of everything. We were warmly greeted by our Sever Teddy " the man" and he presented his entire team he was working aside. Teddy graciously offered wine us and had a great story to share about the evenings specials. We ordered our starters which came out quickly and tastefully. The evenings dinner service was spectacular and served at a perfect pace as we never felt rushed. The tables side Caesar service and entree cutting was a unique performance. To top it all off we finished with the cherries jubilee- sautéed table side- what a yummy treat! Kudos goes to the entire team and culinary chefs - well done. From my wife and I both - thank you - thank you for a all around memorable moment- cheers!
Main dishes very good, sides not so
I had the rack of lam, and I thought it was terrific. Well prepared, well served, and done to medium well, as I like it. My wife had the crab artichoke appetizer. It was not acceptable. It had formed a crust that was hard, from perhaps overcooking or sitting under a heat lamp too long. Her entre was Salmon, which was alright, but the rice side was overcooked. The wait staff was very attentive and competent.
Been splurging here on trips to Tahoe since the 80's and we're never disappointed. Everything first rate but we did notice that their definition of "Medium Rare" is more on the "Rare" side. Just order accordingly.

Ricardo was awesome. The waiters are super busy here and do a very good job at balancing tables. The food was great. Ceaser salad was UHMAZING. Rabbit ravioli was rich and flavorful. Filet and steak Diane were on point abd cooked perfectly . Didn't have dessert because we were too full. But going back today to try the tableside cherries jubilee. Thanks for a great eveni
Old school, table side service
They don't make em like the Sage Room any more. If you have not been, go. It's the original dining room in Harvey's casino in South lake Tahoe. Built in the 1940's, everything is original old west, native american decor. Timeless. Table side service, the best Caesar salad you'll find anywhere. The service and food are the best. This restaurant is my personal favorite, period. You'll spend some money, but what you'll remember is a great, unique dining experience. The Sage Room has been copied (Tahoe Joes) but never duplicated. Enjoy,
Teddy is one of the best waiters that I have ever encountered.
John Wayne's Favorite
John Wayne would have been a regular at the Sage Room. Fantastic restaurant for the true American. Top Shelf service and the food was outstanding. Excellent table side presentations for salads and desserts; made right at your table. Would recommend the Sage Room for anyone visiting South Lake Tahoe.
