Respond to Review of Sage Organic Vegan Bistro
by Stevie Y
Review: I was extremely excited to try Sage for dinner. I can say that the space was open and inviting and the menu descriptions furthered my interest. However, the food was ultimately clumbsy and underwhelming. I endured either bland or bizarrely seasoned plates. When I ordered the ravioli, the server asked if "I like spicy". I said "great" - later I realize that this was his way of telling me that customers often complain about the odd usage of herbs in the dish (no heat, just awfully designed flavor). Overall, the menu reads better than it actually looks/tastes. I want to make it clear that I adore comfort food (I'm NOT a foodie snob). That said, Sage is pretending to be upscale, while offering sloppy creations best served to the excited palates of newly transformed vegans on college campuses. If the food was great, the prices would have been fine - EXCEPT for the extremely overpriced vegan icecream. I'm sorry to say it, but KindKreme is just not that special. This is not sent with malice. I support all things vegan. Hopefully, Sage either turns into a coffee shop or imports new talent into the kitchen, thus creating a more positive identity.
