Wild Sage @ The Rusty Parrot Lodge Ratings and Reviews
My favorite place to dine in Jackson Hole. Great for a get together with dear friends, as it's quiet enough for conversation. Always top-notch in the food and wine department, and love the intimate atmosphere.

Wild Sage Review
The Wild Sage was clearly the best restaurant during our seven day ski trip that we ate at. The food was spectacular. The atmosphere is perfect for any special occasion and the noise level was very low. There are only about eight tables so it is a very quaint dining experience. The Wild Sage would be my first recommendation to anyone visiting Jackson, WY
Remarkable people, remarkable food
Chef Travis' sublime creations were served impeccably by Cody. I dine there two of three nights; each night was different, yet each was excellent. Intimate setting, with all food preparations in view. I've dined at Chef's Tables before, but none surpassed this experience. This is the fourth year I've vacationed in Jackson. The second reservation I've made each year (after flights) is at least one night at Wild Sage.
buffalo on the lamb!
Great Buffalo braised short ribs and perfect service. The chefs are artists who present the food items with class and style. I would highly recommend them for any special occasion.
This is our third time at Wild Sage and it never disappoints! A definite dining must for Jackson Hole!

Tries too hard to be foodie in a non foodie town. Has a great ambiance should just concentrate on great food and lose the attitude. Trendy and over priced.
Need more meatless dishes
There was only one appetizer/salad that didn't have meat and only one fish entree. Need to offer some pasta, orzo etc.
Awesome show of cooking talent
You can sit and watch them cook and plate your meal! What a great spot. Only 8 tables. A little pricy though...
One of Jackson's Finest
There are many excellent restaurants in Jackson Hole and this one rates in the top handful. With Jackson being so remote the food for the best restaurants comes of the SYSCO truck. Most of it is well prepared but rarely fresh. The Wild Sage stands out for a limited selection of the freshest offerings. We began with the house beer and cheddar soup and the foie gras. Both were presented with the restaurant special "twists". The soup with apple and bacon and the foie gras with a chestnut butter and crepe. For main courses we had the venison and the pheasant. Both were exceptional. Serving sizes are small to moderate. This is unusual in Jackson where most main courses are enormous and make you feel stuffed. Service was impeccable. This is rare in Jackson where seasonal staff come and go. The wine list was very good, if not a bit pricey but better than some rip-off wines lists like the Snake River Grill and the Westbank Grill. Two courses each with a moderately priced bottle of wine, tax and tip came to ~$165. With dessert it would be ~$200 which is typical for a high end Jackson restaurant. The Wild Sage rates highly with me and is comparable to The Couloir and The Jenny Lake Lodge (Summer only). Definitely on my list for a return visit.
Buffalo Short Ribs
All around great place. The service was great. We arrived early and they took us up to the library and fire to hang out until they opened. After they opened they asked if we would like to be seated early, which was nice as we were starving from skiing all day. The Foie gras was excellent. I had the buffalo short ribs and they were great. My wife had the filet and it melted in your mouth. Outstanding! Food, wine & service were second to none.
About the best crab cakes ever. Cozy old west decor/atmosphere, nice service, decent wine list (good champagne by the glass), comfortable furnishings. Pheasant sounded great, but needed better seasoning, and wasn't that tender. Decent venison, nice green salad, bland pear cobbler. Worth going for the crab cakes.
Jackson gem at Wild Sage
Excellent setting for a gourmet romantic meal. The pork belly strudel was superb as was the smk goose beet salad. Entrees of pheasant and bison short ribs echoed the call of the Teton mountains !! Great knowledgeable service.
Have been going to this great restaurant, particularly for special occasions like anniversaries, small groups of friends, etc.. for years ... and it continues to offer wonderful food, great service and very quiet, elegant atmosphere ... highly recommended!!
A real find!
Food & service were excellent! The steak was pricey. We will definitely be back!
We really enjoyed our dinner here, excellent service and excellent food. Very well presented.
10yr anniversary dinner
Staff was great along w the food. Soup was incredible after a long cold day. Really enjoyed the quiet table. Free ice cream and champagne was a nice touch to help us celebrate.
Amazing Christmas Dinner!
We don't know if their dining is always this amazing, or if they really made it special for Christmas Eve, but this was one of the most memorable dining experiences we have ever had, and we travel and dine often! We had the wild venison chops and the Wagyu Beef Tenderloin~ pure perfection! We didn't expect anything exciting from a mixed green salad, but exciting to our buds, it was~ and topped with crispy ginger! We started with the crab cakes from the starter menu~ have never had better and doubt we ever will! The wine menu was nice~ and they paired every item on the menu with a wine suggestion! The intimate ambiance with the river stone fireplace was gorgeous! We highly recommend the Wild Sage Restaurant for any special occasion! And we'll always remember this Christmas Eve! Oh, and the service, our server from Poland was such a pleasure~ and very knowledgeable as well!

Alexandra was awesome. We came a day early and was accommodated. We had the Vinson, which was great. The crab cake was good and the frisbee salad was awesome! Would come back!
Our second time and they again made it a perfect dining experience. Amazing food and wonderful service. A must when staying in Jackson Hole.
Increase in corkage a killer for me
We have eaten at The Wild Sage for years and have and still do consider it to overall be in the top 2-3 restaurants in Jackson. We know the waiters by name and appreciate the inventiveness and overall perfection that Chef Travis puts into each and every dish that he serves. We have our own wine cellar so have always enjoyed bringing our own wines to wherver we dine in Jackson. Of course we expect to pay a corkage fee and as recently as 2 months ago the corkage at the WS was $25.00 which is reasonable but honestly on the high end of similarly competitive restaurants. Our latest meal there was wonderful as usual but then I noticed that they had increased their corkage to $35.00. While a$10.00 increase may seem overly picky to most, I know of only one other high end restaurant in JH that charges more. I am principaled enough to make this minor change a deal breaker for my wife and me. So we have cancelled our further reservations based purely on principal. So now the Wild Sage has not only lost a reasonable corkage but also the cost of drinks, meals, desserts, and tips to a wonderful group of their wait staff. Was a $10.00 increase in corkage worth it in the long run.?Possibly because there will always be a group that will continue to dine there principal or not. The Wild Sage is a terrific restaurant that unfortunately, and based on my principals alone, we will not be frequenting again if ever. Very sad!
10th year Anniversary as perfect as the first
I asked my wife to marry me at the Wild Sage 10 years ago this past weekend, and each year since, we have traveled to Jackson Hole to commemorate this important date. As part of that tradition, we always book Saturday night at the Wild Sage and we are never disappointed. There's only about six tables total, so the ambience is very cozy in a rustic cabin type of way including the fireplace. Service is great. The kitchen is open so you can watch your entree's being cooked and plated. Any special requests are accommodated to make your evening one of a kind. The menu is always top of the line with unique and traditional choices. We'll be back next year, of course, and the year after that...and the year after that...
Wonderful dining experience
The Wild Sage is fine dining experience worth the cost. I would have given 5 stars but my dish, Bison Short Ribs was a little overdone for my taste. My wife's Lamb was perfect, just as ordered. Service was attentive and the meal was well paced. The martini's before dinner were excellent. It was a fine dining experience. Next time in Jackson will return.
Elegant with a view ( of the kitchen)
The food and service were both superb. What made the evening just a bit more interesting than other dining experiences was watching the love and precision of the chef and his staff as the food was prepared. Witnessing the plating of each appetizer , entree etc was a sight to be behold. A beautiful evening!
We had a wonderful dinner at Wild Sage... Charming, intimate dining room with only 8 tables, which made us feel like being in someone's home. Local lamb was exceptional; perfectly cooked. Thoughtful, well chosen wine list. Our server was professional, knowledgable and Jackson Hole low key ( a good thing). I don't really understand why they created an exposed kitchen in such a small place because you can't sit at bar and we eneded up watching the kitchen crew clean up for the night.
Reliable, top notch, value
The only place we have been every trip to JH for the past five years that has never disappointed, never became "tired" and always delivered on quality food, quality service and a relaxed yet seemingly upscale environment. We had 3 courses and let our waiter pair the wines at his discretion for each, allowing him to either use the suggested wine or something he wished to substitute. His choices scored big with us and as usual, the food was outstanding. The menu is not huge, but it is meticulously executed and still scores #1 in our book. Coming back in December!

We had greatly anticipated our dinner at this restaurant. Let me start by saying that our server was incredibly professional, the food came out quickly and the ambience was delightful. The reason for 4 stars was that my shrimp bisque needed seasoning and my dessert (chocolate cake) was just WEIRD. The steaks were delicious and my salmons was divine. We will definitely return.
The food was amazing - portions were just right. The taste was fresh and the presentation was beautiful. The service was outstanding - we were treated by all wait staff. The dining room is small, but very appropriate and adequate space between table. Our meal and experience was excellent.
Great Service Good Food
Took out of town visitors to their favorite dinner spot - once again the staff at the Wild Sage did not disappoint. The service was stellar and the food was delish!
Pro: Quiet, elegant dishes Con: staff won't smile
Dinner: Food was excellent but extremely small portions. Breakfast: Food was excellent and portions were good. Wait time to be seated was long, staff would not even acknowledge customers standing; waiting for a table. 3/4 of the restaurant was empty. At least eye contact and an acknowledgement that someone will be with you....nothing. A couple of the wait/staff were rude...If you want staff that smile go somewhere else...
One of our all times favorites!
We loved our dining experience at the Wild Sage Restaurant. We had a wonderful waiter (I hope that I am remembering his name right. I believe that his name was Josh). He was an extremely professional waiter and made our dining experience very special. The room is delightful and has a intimate dining experience. We shared a delicious Pan Seared Foie Gras as a starter. Our second course was an excellently prepared Mushroom Risotto with wild mushrooms and truffles! My entrée was a wonderfully prepared Alaskan Halibut. My husband had the Fennel Seared Lamb Loin and loved it. We shared the Strawberry Shortcake for desert! The wine list was well thought out with a lot of interesting choices. They also made one of the most delicious cosmopolitan's that I have every had! I cannot wait to return to Jackson Hole to dine at the Wild Sage!

Great overall experience......very good staff and quiet surroundings.
Always a very good experience.
On the expensive side buy worth it for special nights.
Old school type place - most diners are 65+
Heard wonderful things about wild sage - it's small and quiet and definately for the older crowd. Not a bad place to go but I don't think I will be going back again. There are so many other inventive and current places in Jackson. This is old and dated but there seems to be a clientele for them - it's just not me.

Everything was fabulous. The crab cake appetizer was great and the elk bone in steak wonderful. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting fine dining in a small intimate atmosphere.
