  • Lavender pork cheeks with caraway, potatoes, a parsnip puree, and what Peter Piper drops when he's DJing (pickled beets).
  • The main courses are incredibly small. Don't expect to get full. Main course, a side, and a drink for $45. On the bright side, you still have plenty of room to go grab some Dick's burgers.
  • Sit in the overly large chairs near the fire and sip on a monkey club.
  • They have a "beer and a shot" drink list. Good place to go if you like whiskey and scotch.
  • the cocktails were inspiring - our bartender Ben was incredible. service was golden.
  • Oh my goodness, everyone on staff is so hot! What a bunch of cuties!
  • The Old Sage brings a modern approach to older cooking techniques like smoking meat, sprouting grains, and pickling vegetables.
  • Great vibes, tasty plates, and well crafted cocktails. The Old Sage is one of my foodie highlights when I visit Seattle.
  • Duck wings. Everything is so delicious. Happy hour all day Sunday
  • Waited 1 hour for food the heard the worst excuse from the manager ever:
  • I forgot to mention that the place is empty. Less than half of the occupancy.
  • After waiting for 1 hour. No food yet. We paid for drinks and left the place. Unbelievable experience. Stay away from this place.
  • Unbearably slow service! 60 minutes and we just got our drinks...starving and very unhappy
  • OK. 35 minutes have gone by and just got 1 out of the 4 appetizers on the table.
  • Waited 30 minutes for the appetizer... Stiil waiting.
  • Lots of meat, if you are into that. Good cocktails, and a nice long bar. Dark, romantic setting, lots of wood and steel
  • Slow service. Drinks took forever to come.
  • Get to know the chefs. They love what they do!
  • Perfect winter drink, Sideways Glance.
  • Great, classic bar. Need to polish more the skills of people behind the bar.
