“Worth the trouble to find it”
Reviewed 14 May 2012

Hidden away near a teen juice bar and non-descript shopping center, this was recommended highly by locals and lived up to its reputation. Knowedgeable and helpful wait staff, several interesting specials to complement the regular menu, and outstanding food. Don't be put off by the 'bar and grill' look. This is fine dining - in a somewhat more casual setting.

“Watch what you eat at the Sage Room”
Reviewed 10 May 2012

This is a superb spot on the south end of Hilton Head Island. It's tucked away in a relatively difficult location for tourists. So when you find the dining room still full at 830p on a random Wednesday in off-season, you know you're on to something. (Especially in this 530p dinner crowd kind of a town.) The place to sit is at the "chef's table," a 10 seat bar that looks directly into the kitchen. It's the only kitchen in the place, so you truly watch everyone's food. The service is simply delightful, Marquis is a pro and had real menu knowledge and real opinions--such a refreshing combo. The 4 chefs are happy to discuss any menu item with you and will go out of their way to make sure you get what you want. The offered to pair two menu items for me, no extra charges. The food is sublime with tasty and thoughtful recipes and pairings. The Ivory Salmon special is a rare find and a real winner. Baked parmesan crusted crab cakes stand out as an appetizer not to be missed. This is the place the locals sneak away to, and for excellent reason.

“Disappointed!”
Reviewed 8 May 2012

We had heard some good things about the Sage Room but our visit was disappointing. The Coco Mahi was very good but the Ribeye and Filet were sub-standard. The waitstaff was very good but the location left much to be desired. Prices were high for the food quality and atmosphere.

“Great Food!!”
Reviewed 7 May 2012

The Sage Room is located at 81 Pope Ave, suite 13, Heritage Plaza. HHI. I say that because the address above, 13 Heritage Rd, has nothing to do with where this Sage Room Restaurant is located, that we eat at. As with a lot of places here on the island, finding this restaurant is a real challenge. Make sure you call and make reservations, and if it is your first visit get directions, because you can NOT see it until you are parked in front of it. Now for the rest of the story! The food is outstanding!!! Jennifer, our sever, was also outstanding! Everything about this restaurant is inside, there are no scenic views, so if you are coming, it's for the food! It is pricey, but we think it is worth it. Needless to say, we loved it!
