Sage Student Bistro - Institute for the Culinary Arts Ratings and Reviews

My first visit was exceptional so upscale with the perfect ambiance. My second visit not as good as the first. However, it was summer and I believe had more freshman. Was not informed the appetizer was raw scallops not cooked and did not say on menu. The salmon however was perfect it was the dish and cooked. I would suggest for the optimal experience go during regular school semesters.
An warm environment for new foodies
If you're looking to start trying a more upscale form of food I give the Sage Student Bistro my highest recommendation. It has complex dishes with affordable pricing and staff who are more than willing to answer your questions.
I celebrated my birthday at Sage and couldn't have had a better experience. The food was to die for. I've never ate so well before and for the price, you cannot beat it. We chose the prix fixe option and I'm so glad we did. Going to Sage, you must have an open mind and be willing to try things. Otherwise this isn't the place for you. Also, if you're someone who is a typical salad and main course person, this isn't the place for you either. We were able to bring our own wine with a $10 corkage fee, which I thought was very reasonable and a nice option. One other thing- make sure you allot a couple of hours for your visit. Because there are several plates, the experience does take some time. Overall, I cannot wait until we visit again!
Fine Dining at a Bargain!
My wife and I has a superb multi-course dining experience created by students Sharon Crawley, Madeline Sorrell and Quinn Stuart. Each course was a treat for the eyes and palette. Plus excellent service by a very friendly (and knowledgable) student named Jar.
The added bonus: the whole meal probably cost about half of what a similar experience would cost at one of Omaha's fine-dining restaurants.
This is a great spot for foodies! We plan to return again soon.
MCC has built a wonderful program here that does an excellent job preparing students who want to work in the culinary industry—It's a tremendous benefit to the community.
The Sage Bistro
The Sage Bistro was a warm, welcoming atmosphere. Our waitress was excellent and the food was delicious. We enjoyed the prix frix and it was fun to experience fine dining. It was a great night. The fireplace set the stage for great ambiance. The room was cozy, food delicious, and we look forward to returning sometime soon. It was worth driving to Omaha for!

We reserved the table at 1930. We werent able to finish eating until 2130. The only comment I had was, some of us are still eating and trying to finish our desert and our plate was already taken. I understand that we are a group of 8, however I was enjoying my pot de creme and was only able to have 3 bites. It was a great gesture that they asked for condiments. We probably have to check in early maybe next time. Overall, the environment was very romantic, I had a great time with my family.
Great Dining Experience.
We enjoyed the diversity of the menu. Emily, our server, did an excellent job of describing the menu. Crab cakes were a pleasant surprise to start our taste buds. Appetizers were delicious. The only thing we were served that we think should be pulled from the menu was the carrots cooked with coffee beans. Main courses for the 6 of us were tasty and just the right size. We did not order dessert, but the finale assortment was a good variety. The chocolate was the very best (a real melt in your mouth).
Very impressed! Going back!
We went to Sage to experience the student Prix Fixe menu, and it did not disappoint! Each course was more delicious than the last, and we walked out of there stuffed and amazed at the talent in the kitchen. You can't beat a $30, 5-course menu! We brought in our own wine ($10 corking fee) and had a lovely evening. Can't wait to go back with friends!
Instructor at MCC (RDLS and English)
A truly wonderful experience. The Asia choices were amazing. I have had many Asian meals and coming from San Francisco, I have had the opportunity to taste a variety of delicious Asian meals. I must admit that our culinary experience at MCC equaled if not surpassed all of my previous Asian dining experiences.
Champagne Taste on a Beer Budget
Sage Bistro serves beautiful, fresh, innovative food in a modern, elegant setting with Impeccable service at an incredible price. My husband and I enjoyed an amazing seven course prix fixe menu, including desert, wine, and coffee for less than $100! Sage Bistro-in Building 22 on the MCC Fort Omaha campus-gives you a fine dining experience comparable to any "special occasion" establishment in town at a fraction of the cost.
A Gem of a place
This was my first visit to Sage. Why have I waitrd so long. It might have well been one of the best meals I've had in an Omaha restaurant and certainly one of the most lovely presentations! Our group of 6 shared ALL appetizers which were equally delicious. We had our own entres and then shared 3 of 4 desserts! Oh my! The inverted lemon pie was amazing....lick the plate clean, amazing! I actually was surprised that MCC Sage Bristo was going to be this good. I'm going to try lunch next. A hidden gem in Omaha!

This was our first visit to the Sage Student Bistro and what a pleasant surprise! Will definitely recommend to friends and family. Staff was more than attentive, presentations artistic and food definitely above average. A hidden gem for Omaha! We will be back again.
our server answered all of our questions and the food was great! Our only complaint is the length of time it took to get through the meal. We were seated at 630pm and we were done a little after 9pm. The time between the courses needs to be shortened. Other wise it was a fun experience!
Best in Class
Sage Bistro continues to be one of the finest white table cloth dining experiences in the city.
To their credit, they routinely offer several ala carte dishes in addition to their student designed "tasting" menu.
Combined with pricing that is easily half what this kind of fare would cost elsewhere, Sage is a spectacular bargain.
I would love to see the students take on more ethnic cuisines.
The food was amazing and the flavors were exciting and fresh! I was a little disappointed in the lack of knowledge the server had with the wine list and you could tell that she didn't have a lot of experience serving and was unfamiliar with proper table presentation and needed to work on her etiquette in the presentation of servering plates and silverware arrangement. other then the lack of experience in the server my guests and I enjoyed our experience and the incredible food and will definitely return.
