Sage is James Beard Foundation Award-wining Chef Shawn McClain’s first venture outside of Chicago. Introducing his distinctive style to ARIA, Chef McClain combines farm-to-table produce, artisanal meats & sustainable seafood with an emphasis on simple, clean flavors & seasonal ingredients. Sage's award-wining cocktail program visits America's classic libations & rewrites them with a contemporary edge through natural ingredients & limited-production boutique liquors. The 112-seat dining room & 49-seat lounge display a seductive & comfortable elegance. Designer Jacques Garcia, know as much for his opulent French style as his pure-form minimalism, echoes Chef McClain's culinary sensibility with a refined, modern aesthetic brimming with character & whimsy. Hand-painted murals by Paulin Paris offer reinterpretations of famous early modernist paintings. Ever raising the bar, Sage combines a brilliant culinary team, an ideal location near ARIA's main entrance.

The food is incredible: from the flavors to the creativity and presentation, the food is fantastic. I wish I could say the same about the service. Being a director of hospitality myself, I tend to notice aspects of proper or poor service, and unfortunately Sage is full of them. The hostesses were lovely and welcoming, and the ambiance and decor are beautiful. Out server was about 12 minutes late to our table (enough time for both of us to use the w.c.) and once he did come over there was no introduction of himself nor a "welcome", but rather "do you know what you'd like to order?" If you're looking for great food then you'll enjoy Sage, but don't get all dressed up thinking it'll be an enjoyable dining experience.

It is amazing! I can’t give it 5 star value bc everything in Vegas is so expensive but it’s amazing and worth every penny. Do not miss dinner there!

Everything about Sage is perfect! Great ambiance, wonderful and knowledgeable service, food is outstanding. We have the waygu strip steak and filet and they were perfectly cooked and super tender. One thing to note is the strip steak is huge! It can definitely be split between 2 people. The iberico pork was a medley of perfectly paired foods. The pork itself melted in your mouth. The wine selection is impeccable. Not one complaint about the evening and look forward to going back again!

We did the vegan tasting menu and it was perfect with wine pairing where the sommelier came by to discuss each choice. We have only been doing vegan for a while and I was skeptical but this exceeded all expectations.

Excellent food, exciting cocktails, terrible service. Truly these folks don't get that no place is good enough to treat customers poorly. With so many wonderful high end restaurants in Las Vega, one can find equally fine cuisine, with much better service.

Sage is one of my favorite restaurants. We have dined many many times. This occasion was very disappointing! I had an appetizer and before I was finished they brought the next course and asked me to move my plate over. Also every single entree included mushrooms! They need to get back to creativity!As expensive as this restaurant is one should not be rushed!

Unfortunately, we did not have a pleasant experience. The place was busy, understaffed, our waiter took our order and promptly abandoned us. Appies came out before dinner, bread order forgotten, drinks took forever, no quality check throughout appies which were ordered after they tried to serve us our mains first. This was our anniversary dinner at Sage. Disappointing.

Well run establishment with knowledgeable wait staff and sommelier. On the expensive side especially for the portion size, but that is kind of expected in Vegas. The dinning room is designed nicely and the decors was elegant. Although the design of the room is well laid out, it does have poor acoustics that allows sound to carry throughout the restaurant.

Overall it was a nice experience for my wife and I, just be prepared for a little extra noise and reduced portion sizes.

The food at Sage is outstanding and the service from the General Manager to the waiter were extremely attentive and kind. I would highly recommend this. They had an artichoke soup that was to die for. I wish I could have the recipe. The steak was done to perfection, the pappardelle was melting in my mouth. Loved it from beginning to end

The food was good. It was the Las Vegas, over-the-top, decadent meal that one should expect at a Vegas resort. Presentation was good, and the staff were on their A-game taking care of everything. The restaurant was quiet, so no problems with casual conversations.

This was such a top notch experience. I booked on open table and when I checked in we got seated right away. The waiter came up and greeted me by name before ever meeting me. Great communication the host and him had. He recommended great dishes and checked in to see if we had any allergies. Every time I got up to go to the restroom someone came by and folded my napkin.

The only thing that could be better is the drinking glasses smell fishy. I thought it maybe was the tap water so we ordered bottled and it still smelt fishy.

The food was mixed, with some outstanding dishes and some not as good. The Hamachi crisp appetizer was wonderful. I had the chicken entree, and the breast meat was wonderful but the leg/thigh meat which is typically my favorite had much less flavor and seemed a bit dry. Service was a bit slow but they were lovely about providing me with a gluten free bread option.

John was our primary server and he was disengaged and unfriendly. Examples:

1. When my wife asked what was the “signature cocktail” he might recommend, he replied she should look at the list on back page;
2. When I asked about an ingredient in one of the cocktails that I was unfamiliar with, he replied it was a liquor without further explanation about its taste profile;
3. He was generally in a rush to leave our table and on 2 occasions abruptly left before we had finished asking questions;
4. The sommelier came by to check on wine selection we made and took another order for a cocktail from my wife. It never arrived.
5. We ordered two appetizers, two mains and my wife wanted to try the soup. We asked if it could be “two plated” so we could both try it. We were told this could not be done and server brought us two spoons instead. This led to the inelegant passing back and forth of the bowl of soup for us both to try.

We watched other servers interact with their tables and noted longer discussions about the menu etc. and we were disappointed that we did not receive the same service.

My wife ordered the scallops main course and it was gritty/sandy disclosing improper cleaning of the scallops. Server never checked back to see how meal was going and she ultimately did not eat half of the scallops.

When server was made aware of this at end of meal, he walked away with the plate with barely an acknowledgement that she had not enjoyed or completed her meal.

In fairness, Robert the GM attended at our table and was friendly and acknowledged the issue by offering free dessert and removed the charge for her dinner.

The positives:

1. The veal appetizer and soup were excellent.
2. My pork main course was a beautiful plate of food and the dish sang
3. The secondary servers were all prompt and friendly
4. Loved the room

Sadly, all of the forgoing issues compromised what should have been a great experience.
