I had my birthday dinner here with the degustation menu. As a gluten free vegan, I often struggle to get dietary catering most places, and often the food substitutes are dismal. But Sage was incredible! Every single dish was outstanding, full of flavour and elegantly displayed. Plus, every single one of the staff were phenomenal - so friendly, professional, and kind. Well done to everyone at Sage! You are doing incredible work! See less

Sage has incredible native Australian influenced food and the most welcoming atmosphere! We were fortunate to be served by Nino who made our lunch date so special. He was attentive and made the ambience at Sage friendly and warm. The food, wine and cocktails were all sensational and we will 100% be back. Could not recommend this place enough if you are looking for places to dine in Canberra. See less

Had the 6 course degustation on Saturday evening. We had the 6.30pm seating which started off well, the food was prompt and the service was excellent, especially from host Nino. However, as more and more tables arrived it became obvious the restaurant was understaffed and unfortunately this impacted the service and the food. We could see they were trying their best to keep up and our last few courses were not to the same standard (dessert was still delicious). It was Valentines weekend so perhaps they were overbooked and there may have been last minute staff cuts due to covid. It was just unfortunate because the potential was there if there was better management. See less

About two years ago my wife and I dined at Sage Restaurant and found the experience entirely pleasurable. The service was very good and the food as sophisticated and enjoyable as we had encountered in Canberra. About the same time Sage Restaurant was apparently voted Tripadvisor number 1 fine dining restaurant in Australia. On Saturday evening my wife and I returned to Sage Restaurant only to discover that in the intervening period a ship of intergalactic space ninjas had descended on Gorman House; that they had kidnapped the wait staff and the kitchen staff and made off with them and all of their recipes. The cuisine, if it can be elevated by the use of that expression, which was presented to us on Saturday night was basic, uninspired and uninspiring and, frankly, akin to something which a high school student might present as part of a home economic assignment. In short, my wife and I were bitterly disappointed. The fact that the restaurant offered only a set degustation menu ought to have gone some way to ensuring that each course was polished and delectable. The fact that two courses featured thinly sliced processed meat which one could acquire at any supermarket or delicatessen illustrates just what a devastating effect the space ninjas have had on this restaurant. The photographs on the restaurant's web page must be the only thing those ghoulish invaders failed to take with them because they bear no resemblance to the food with which our taste buds were assaulted on Saturday night. The matched premium wines were no better. A wine does not become “premium” just because it is imported and bears upon its label some foreign words. That might fool the uninitiated and uneducated but will never fool people who know a little about fine dining. My suggestion to the owners/management is that if a ransom is outstanding, they pay it as soon as possible to get back their staff; their recipes and their reputation. See less

Great venue and ambience. Staff were very friendly and courteous and service is quite fast. I personally wasn't too happy about the food though. Didn't taste to my liking and the presentation wasn't the best. See less

Food at Sage is great! Fresh, delicious and creative. They have excellent vegetarian alternatives too. The cocktails - especially the passionfruit mojito - were super tasty. We were outside on a cold rainy day and they had a pile of fluffy blankets for us. See less

We thoroughly enjoyed the variety and innovative mix of five courses that exposed our taste buds to new blends. The sequence of flavours from each course was very well thought out. Yet the meal certainly matched the mantra 'no customer should leave hungry'. The staff were incredibly personable and seemed to know exactly when to serve, striking a perfect balance of friendliness whilst offering space to enjoy the evening. We give a shout out to all four serving staff but it is Owen we knew. See less

We were lucky to get a reservation on the first night lockdown was lifted. A special degustation collab between Peter Harrington + Michael Harrington & James Viles celebrating regional flavours. Loved every morsel. We went with the wine pairing which only added to the experience. With cocktails it came to $249 a head but we figured we'd saved so much money on restaurants during lockdown we were simply making up for lost time. Prompt and friendly service, great atmosphere, great location within the Gorman Arts Centre, and a lovely old building. See less

Our experience at Sage was nothing but SPECTACULAR!. Starting off with a lovely potato and kelp soup upon arrival which our wonderful waiter Maddyson referred to it as a covid friendly hug from sage. During lunch service they allow you to dine either on the five course, three course or two course menu. I choose the three course menu which sits at $90 per person. A thoughtful and delicious menu with generous servings perfect for a three course meal. We steered away from the wine pairing menu but next time it is a must! Once again id just really love to thank the wonderful chefs who took the time to prepare, cook and even deliver the food to our table, and our beautiful waiter Maddyson for making our time so wonderful and enjoyable with prompt service, a bubbly personality and a great sense of humour.

Amazing service with a great intro before each dish. The team were friendly and welcoming. The food was fantastic. The only detractor being the heater not working 100% on the night I was there, and the warmer inside was already in use for a function. See less

The experience at Sage was nothing short of being absolutely splendid and truly special. It was my wife's birthday and the waitstaff did their very best to make it a truly beautiful and unforgettable experience. Ella, Owen, Bethany and Ainslie were so engaging, ensuring to explain every dish that came our way and went out of their way to provide for our every need. The food was undoubtedly lip-smacking, albeit the portion size being rather small. The crocodile burger as a bar snack the trout were stand out dishes for us. In short, it was a truly beautiful experience and will definitely consider coming back,more so for the fabulous waitstaff. Definitely coming here again See less

This was our first visit to Sage and we were very impressed. We went for dinner and had the 5 course chef pick along with the paired cocktails for me and matched local wines for my boyfriend. The food was sensational and lived up to the reputation of trip advisors number 1 fine dining restaurant in Australia for 2020. My boyfriend doesn’t often comment too much on food but for him to say the food was really good as well is huge! The staff were very friendly, professional and attentive. Special mention to Maddy who was exceptional and took very good care of us. The only point I could make was to remove the butchers paper from the tables as it detracted from the fine dining experience. Other than that it was a wonderful experience and I can highly recommend especially for a date night. The mint garden outside is a beautiful setting for a cheeky drink or two. Definitely add sage to your to visit list, you won’t be disappointed. See less
