We had a large party, only one person had dietary restrictions. None of us are began, but really enjoyed all the offerings. The food was excellent, the presentation beautiful and the service was great. Can't say enough about this place -- all eight of us enjoyed our meals. They change their menu from season to season, but if you go... More

We've dined here five or six times now and it never disappoints. The menu is always changing but you can always expect to find tasty, vegetarian and vegan options. The dishes are exquisite and presentation is world class. And, most important, everything is soooooo tasty.

Good inventive menu of vegan/gluten free options by a family run/fair trade minded group. Menu changes seasonally --most recently enjoyed the chick pea burger and the autumn crisp. Green machine smoothie is delicious. Some of the dishes are too heavy in starch for me but I can find healthier choices on the menu. Salads are nothing unusual but the entrees... More

I am not a vegan but I loved my vegan omelet. Breakfast sandwich also got good reviews by the group. And Jason is an excellent barista!

Found this place by accident. It was full on a Sunday night with an enthusiastic crowd. It's in a strip mall full of "ethical" stores like Roots grocery store, but this is a sophisticated restaurant with an upscale menu. The service is fast and friendly The food is amazing and wold satisfy non-vegans easily.

On the way to the airport we stopped to have lunch at Great Sage and our meal was far beyond great!! Everything was delicious, a plant-based paradise! The "crab" cake salad was flavorful and the Reuben was spot on! Save room for dessert! Vegan tres leches! Incredible! Meat eaters will be impressed as everything was so flavorful. Definitely a great... More

Vegan cooking can be very tricky due to its effort in replicating flavors and textures found in non-vegan versions. What Great Sage falls short on are on the dishes that pretty much fall in the domain of meat and dairy desserts. But what it does best are in those that lean heavily in the vegetarian department. Such was the case... More

I'll put this out there first - - I'm not vegan. I'm not even vegetarian. I went to try it with my vegan daughter, and would not have gone on my own. I felt like I went in with an open mind, but couldn't find much to like about it. The service was excellent. We sat outside, and even though... More

Brunch at the Great Sage offers a lot of choices that are delicious for vegans and non-vegans alike. Start with one of the amazing cinnamon buns but make sure to share - they are large and you need to leave room to enjoy your breakfast. The quesadilla was a generous portion. I could only eat half! The pancakes were gobbled... More
