We stopped here for apps and drinks as soon as we checked in to our hotel. Perfect cocktails, the charcuterie board was a perfect assortment...nothing was left, and the warm foccacia bread was delicious. Wish we had returned for dinner.

We have eaten at Sage many times now, but this is my first review. Inside, the room is fairly small, with limited seating for groups larger than 6-8. During patio season, there is more room on the covered deck. The focus is on tapas-style small...More

I enjoyed a wonderful selection of delicious tapas accompanied by the featured wine. Service was excellent and although I was there on my own I did not feel uncomfortable. It was good to experience food that was different from the usual Canadian selection of burgers,...More

We had a selection of tapas and a bottle of local wine. The tapas was presented inventively and tasted very good. The Albarino wine complemented it well. Good and friendly service and attention from the owner. Definitely worth a try.

We shared three dishes - mushroom risotto (rich and delicious), beef carpaccio which had so many great elements, and crispy duck with great pickled mushrooms and parsnip purée which made up for the not-crispy skin on the duck. We finished with a tasty coconut cheesecake....More

I've eaten at some pretty swish restaurants and can safely say that the service I received here was one of the best I've ever had -- top three at least. The server was so attentive, so unobtrusive, so knowledgeable about the wine and spirits list...More
