I am giving this restaurant a one star review because of their waiter. I came in for dinner on wednesday december 3rd to celebrate my birthday. upon entering this establishment i felt the unfriendliness of their staff. The older woman who was the hostess literally waved her hand in the air and brushed us off as one of the waiters asked her if she was seating folks. upon being seated our waiter came over to take our order, he started off with making a dry joke about us women and our age since my husband informed him it was my birthday. he then preceded to go over the specials. He advised about the scallops as an appetizer and then said " it's a bit expensive so i don't know if you'll want to order it". It was $25 for 4 scallops basically. next i asked him what sides came with the roasted duck, his response was "are you both going to order the same thing". The entire conversation we had with this man was so dry, forced, sarcastic. He has zero personality when it comes to being a waiter. He isn't friendly or polite. This arrogance and i'm better than this job attitude really needs to be in another profession and not in public service. we had the crab cakes, french onion soup, roasted duck, rack of lamb and the infamous expensive scallops. Besides the scallops being under seasoned, the other dishes were good. I won't say great but they were good. needless to say i won't be returning to this restaurant.

I came to sage cafe because of a groupon for a mimosa brunch. The service was very good and food was excellent. I especially loved the French toast it was simply the best I have ever had. The mimosas flowed ( we drank two pitchers worth) bust an excellent experience and I can't wait to go back. If you are going for brunch. You MUST order the French toast. It is truly something special.

We had not been to Sage for a while and decided to take a friend of ours to dinner last night. Since it was not a 2 for 1 night, the restaurant was half empty but there seemed to be sufficient staff available. After looking at the previous reviews, readers will be happy to know that there was a change in the hostess. She was delightful. The food was as good as it has ever been. In the past, service has not been a problem for me - or at least understandable when the restaurant is busy. However, last night's server was an example of an individual who should not be in the business. Actually, I should probably be thanking him because his negligence saved us a lot of money ... we were not able to get the wine we wanted (after waiting 20 minutes to get water and bread) and we also could not get decaf cappaccinos or creme brûlée. I don't think I have given less than 20% tip but did last night! Such a shame - hope Sage gets their act together soon but after last night's performance, it will be a while until any of us go back.

I have to agree with the other reviewer. I've tried time after time to enjoy a good meal with friends at Sage and unfortunately, I continue to meet with uncomfortable circumstances throughout the course from poor service and an inexcusably rude hostess. Fort Lauderdale deserves better.

First, made a reservation with a woman I could not understand, and I'm guessing she could not understand me. Second, arrived at the restaurant and walked into a hostess with a scowl. She could not find my reservation. By the way, I could not understand the hostess, and I'm just assuming she was the same lady that took my reservation. I honestly believe she did not care to communicate as she made no eye contact or used no nonverbal clues to help the situation. Now she was really scowling. Waited 15 minutes and got a seat. Food was expensive, but not particularly great. My appetite was ruined, though, by the angst and tension that permeated through the atmosphere. If you are going to go, drink wine first, and hope that the hostess has been replaced! I will never know because I have no interest in returning.
