The food was absolutely delicious and everyone in our party of 16 loved it.

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.
Wife's salmon was undercooked. We were not offered coffee with desert. Rest of the meal was excellent. Service was a bit slow.

The student menu our party tried was a five course meal by Jeremiah. The menu was very well designed, and perfectly executed. Will definitely be back.
We took my husband there for his birthday.
We had an awesome experience and will definitely be back to Sage. Our server, Ashley, was awesome and so personable. We enjoyed his suggestions of the food we should try, especially the desserts.
2nd visit and it was a lot if fun. Different experience each time. Different students and different foods. Always fun to try. Will return again. Make sure to check website for dates.
We love you !
There were 9 of us friends who dined and we all had a wonderful experience. Can't wait to come again.
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!

Had nine go, our group is a club of 44yrs. Always looking for a great experience and food. Saga didn't disappoint any of us. Will be going again.

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).
5-Course Seafood Meal
The specialized attention & 5-courese meal was excellent. I will look forward to participating in future venues.
Great ambiance. Fine dining at a affordable price.
Our waiter made this a special evening.
Jared was our server and he gave a wonderful description of each entree and also told us about our whole meal. He was so cheerful and this was a very enjoyable evening.
Lovely place to have dinner! The menus the students come up with are amazing and are prepared wonderfully.
Food was great.
Food was great.
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!
First time dinner
What a great place, my wife and I had a great lunch at a great price. We will be back for sure
Students who did the cooking just won a national championship and that shows any time I have ever eaten there. Omaha's best kept secret!
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.
Sage was a great place dine. The atmosphere and food were wonderful.
Everything was exceptional - food, service, atmosphere. Will definitely go back.
Scallop appetizer and salmon entree's were very good. Beef entrée was marginal at best. Service was "OK" this time.
What a find - very good food - bargin for the price - good service- can't wait to go again - way to go Metro CC!
What a gem!
Innovative dishes, well prepared food, and a bargain for the quality. Always a treat when we come here!
We have always had great food here! The last time we went our two year old came along. They went out of their way to make sure he was taken care of. I highly recommend!
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.
So cool to see people 20 to 30 running a business basically.
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.
Omaha's Best Kept Restaurant Secret
The Valentine prix fixe meal blew my husband away! He loved everything in the 6-course meal especially the oysters in a half shell and the sea bass. The dessert--chocolate bomb was decadent. My husband is not fond of lamb but the way it was prepared and presented made a believer out of him. From the static menu I enjoyed the chicken that was crusted with Maytag blue cheese--outstanding. The house-baked bread was still warm from the oven and was one of the best I've ever tasted. Our waiter, Keegan, was very attentive, knowledgable, and friendly. The ambiance was perfect---seated near the fireplace on a cold winter night and looking out at the beautifully-lit campus made for a perfect evening. One suggestion would be to provide professionally dry-cleaned white shirts for your wait staff. It would add so much to the overall atmosphere. We have told all our friends about our pleasant experience and will be back soon with a bottle of wine in tow--figured out it would be a much cheaper even with the modest corkage fee. Thank you for providing Omaha with such a gem.
Fantastic Dinner ~ GREAT Value ~ Fun Evening
This is our third visit to SAGE. We love the trendy decor and the warm and glowing fireplace. What a treasure for Omaha. We love that the server is a student who is taking a serving class and is often opening a bottle of Champaign for the very first time. We love that the menu changes and must say that the food this time was better than ever. We will be back.
