The staff, and food, was absolutely wonderful. We went out to celebrate a special event and the staff suprised us with a hand written card, special dessert and a gift voucher. (That was all completely un-expected!) It was our first time at Sage and we will definitely be back.

Feedback is one of the highlights of this restaurant, going to the lengths of having the table cover where you can rate each meal individually and feedback going to the chef. The rate of service, especially for our 5th anniversary was absolutely outstanding as the staff members had written a personalised congratulations card which had almost moved me to tears.

Another great experience of ‘taste and test’ for us. Not only is the food a great draw card but the experience of mindfully tasting and scoring each dish is really interesting and entertaining. Also on each occasion we have found the staff to be friendly and informative. We’ll keep coming back!
