Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The food here is out of this world. The menu is fresh and has a great choice. The bread served is unreal and a nice sorbet treat will make you want more. This is a must visit restaurant if you want something fancy but not...pretentious.More

The reviews for Sage really capture why this place is so good. It's old school quality and service with modern cooking. We ordered starters, main and desert and were treated to the in-between courses that are always a pleasant surprise - esp when they're not...charged seperately. Who knew that you could combine apple, banana and carrot in a sorbet - and it be so delicious. My wife's pasta was customised to her taste and my duck & fresh veg were excellent. The wine choices and plentiful and not over-priced. Next time we are back in Westport I will be booking in advance - we were lucky to get a table for two when we phoned that day. It's perhaps a little more expensive when compared to most other places but the quality and service really made it stand out, so that's why we'll be back.More

The quality of food and service at this restaurant was stunning. We dined in one of the most famous restaurants in the world last month and the food we had at Sage last night was easily much better. All the courses were excellent and there...were additional nice complimentary touches, such as a delicious sorbet between the starters and mains and petit fours with apple schnapps to finish. We couldn't recommend this restaurant more highly. The atmosphere was great and the food was exceptional. It could not be faulted.More

Creative high quality cuisine, lots of local produce. Full vegetarian menu as well as a la carte and really full daily specials board. True tastes. Very reasonably priced for this quality of food. Wine menu extensive and good value as well as quality. Surprise of...an amouse bouche of little desserts and schnapps on the house. Definite 5 star experience without any of the pretentious stuffMore

They were booked one night, so we had to wait a day to eat there. Very much worth the wait. We ate in 5 other places in Westport. All top of the TripAdvisor list. Safe is hands down. The best. The garden salad had beets,...seeds, a pear gelatin, and pickled cauliflower. Maybe the best salad I’ve ever had. There was an amuse bouche/palate cleanser in between. Ginger sorbet. Excellent. I had seafood pasta and my companion had eggplant parm. Both incentive. Different. And spit on.More

I couldn't have made a better choice for my birthday celebration on July 13th. We opted for a 6:30pm slot and were offered a choice of Early Bird or A La Carte, we opted for the latter. I had the Clew Bay Scallops - two...perfectly cooked plump Scallops in a Cauliflower Miso soup followed by Rump of Mayo Lamb. I still salivate when I think of them. Brilliant locally sourced ingredients cooked perfectly. Appetisers, Sorbet and Schnapps were very nice added touches also. The staff were incredible - and incredibly busy. No wonder, this is one of the best meals I have ever eaten in Ireland. Who wouldn't want to eat here? Thank you to all at Sage for a very memorable all round experience.More

5 Star Food. Doesn’t matter what you order, everything is excellent! I’ve been twice to Westport in the last two years. Both times we’ve been to Sage. I said to the waiter, these two meals over the last 2 years have been the best two...meals I have eaten in the last 2 years! I told the waiter, I’ve been to London last year and the restaurants weren’t as good.More

We never fail to have a lovely meal here. Our favourite in West port. Would recommend booking in advance espically in peak season. This time around we enjoyed a fish plater starter from the specials menu which was lovely. For mains we had duck and...steak both beatiful. Sorbets and breads were a nice treat too. Staff egfficent and polite.More
