Thankfully lunch is (or was) two for one. I had the special snapper which was overcooked and served with bland vegetables and rice. My partner's coq-au-vin consisted of dry chicken in a slightly congealed sauce. Service was slow and haphazard - this was blamed on them being busy - but the restaurant was way under half full. If we'd have... More

From the limited Sunday brunch menu, I selected the French toast, again. As usual, it was oh, so good. I'll come here again just for that.

Sage is one of those finds that you just pinch yourself over. We had such an incredible meal on our first visit we returned a few nights later and the second time was as good, if not better. The service is superb and their wine list great. The French Onion soup may be the best I have ever had. The... More

If they have the foie gras appetizer, don't hesitate. It melts in your mouth and does crazy things to your brain. The crispy duck is everything it promises to be. The frog legs are delightful but a bit overwhelmed by the rice. We also had the Crepe Diane, which was very hearty. Dessert was the Crepe Orleans and, while I'm... More

The best cassoulet this side of the Atlantic! If you haven't tried it, it's a "must try" dish prepared exquisitely at Sage. Also try their excellent version of Tarte Tatin, a traditional French upside down Apple pie. I think you might need to ask in advance for this. It's another superb dish!

We went for lunch and were not disappointed. My wife had crepes and I had the black angus burger. My wife enjoyed here crepes. I loved my burger. One of the best I've had in years.

From the staff to the decor, the bread & tapenade, to the crepes and the crime brûlée, Sage is authentic. There is a wide variety of menu options for every "French" palate. It's been 15 years since living in Ft Lauderdale - was anxious to try it again on this visit and it was better than ever!
