We had to wait quite a long time before we got seated. Seemed like all of the waiting staff was busy. Sadly there wasn’t room on the terrace. A pity because the view at Sage bistro is absolutely stunning and the weather was perfect for an outside lunch. Luckily we had a table at the window so we could still enjoy the view.
Sage bistro is a quite stylish place with lots of room for the tables. I really liked the interior design of the restaurant.
Options on the menu all sounded delicious, so we had a hard time choosing. I went for the horseradish root crusted wild spring salmon, one of the recommendations of our waitress. A local caught salmon, sounded great to me. My boyfriend had the ponzu marinated British Columbia Sturgeon.
When our meal arrived, we were thrilled. Both dishes looked gorgeous, the plates were decorated with little edible flowers. But looks can be deceiving. My salmon was average at best. The salmon was overcooked and too dry, the potatoes weren’t crunchy (I suspect they weren’t fresh) and very mushy. A pity, because everything looked so great.
All in all I left with mixed feelings. This restaurant could be great, but expectations weren’t met and the prices were too high for the quality of the meal.
