Booked Sage on the basis of its number 1 Tripadvisor rating..... We must have been on a day when the chef was off sick because it was simply dreadful.
The place was almost deserted on a Wednesday night, but because the menu reads (and is priced!) like a fine dining experience I wasn't surprised. My partner ordered deep fried Brie, which arrived freezing cold in the centre.... An unlucky event maybe ? This was sent back to the kitchen and was replaced within 5 minutes..... Exactly the same stone cold centre! Another starter was delivered which was adequate, however the explanation that they'd found the reason for the undercooked Brie was laughable, apparently the fryer had been turned off !!!!!
Main courses arrived. We had chosen 2 Fillet steaks. One cooked medium and one as rare as possible... Both arrived well done. Surely a very rare steak should be the easiest to accomplish? By this point we had decided to cut our losses and eat elsewhere.
We left without charge, feeling sorry for the waiter, Roy, who seemed rather shell shocked to be serving such rubbish. My final gripe is the amount of "pinging" noises which could be heard from the kitchen. The Amuse Buche was a soup which had obviously been blasted in the microwave to flamethrower heat, and the veg was also cooking from the inside, suggesting the same
at €25 or so (plus sides) I would expect a decent standard of main course, but was sadly let down
Maybe we were unlucky? Won't be going back to find out though
