We had a very nice dinner at the Sage Bistro, but there could be a few things to make it better. The food itself was really good - I had a lamb shank and my dining companions had trout and duck breast - all were prepared very well and were delicious. The trout was a little on the small size...

I've had better service at a rest stop gas station. Walked in with a group of 10, wasn't even looked at. Proceeded to talk to the hostess (can't recall her name but had piercings and a tattoo) who was rude and more interested in her iPhone. When we finally did get her attention, she claimed the restaurant (which was empty... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant, were there for sunday brunch. Interesting menu varying from bacon and eggs to eggs benedict. My wife had lemon and ricotta pancakes and really enjoyed it. I had bacon and eggs, well done, would visit again.

Nice atmosphere and good food. Our server was pleasant but hostess and other staff barely acknowledged us as arrived or left. Expensive but enjoyable meal with family.

We had our staff party upstairs in the Wine Lounge last night, there was 13 of us and we were all able to be seated round one large table. We had some great appetisers from the Wine Lounge menu followed by a special 'family style' meal prepared for us. A beautiful prime rib roast with sides of mixed vegetables, garlic... More

I was referred to the Sage Bistro & Wine Lounge by Canmore Wine Merchants downtown. Thank you so much! Sage Bistro & Wine Lounge was amazing! The waitress was... More

This has turned into my favorite place to eat in Canmore. The Bistro part and wine lounge have different menu's so there is lots of choice. We ate in the Bistro one night and the wine lounge the next. The food was excellent and service was also good. I will be back.

Very friendly staff and awesome food. I have food allergies and they happily accommodated my diet with care. It was hard to make up my mind on what to order. I'll have to go back!

My husband and I planned a nice dinner out while visiting Canmore. This visit we decided upon Sage Bistro. Our first impression was our waiter telling us that the vegetables come pre-mixed so we were not able to ask for the dish without mushrooms. This seemed a bit odd considering that entrees were between $24-50. Premixed really? Other tables were... More
