We chose the Wild Sage based on reviews that we read on TripAdvisor. What a treat! Our pasta dishes were delicious, the service was impeccable and we enjoyed ourselves immensely.

my Manhattan was perfect - no need to tell them to stir, don't shake...LOL! the food is just eclectic enough to be unique without losing sight of the classics. place gets crazy busy - don't be in a rush - service is good, but sometimes slow due to standing room only moments.

Great dinner at this small but cozy restaurant in downtown Spokane. Food choices to cover all tastes including vegan and omnivorous, decent wine list even if a little pricey. Walk to it if you can.

If you are celebrating and want to splurge, plan dinner at the Wild Sage. It is on the pricey side for Spokane but an entree includes a small dinner salad on your plate and the entree meal. My husband had the Chanterelle Chicken and I had the flank steak. Both came with the tasty Peruvian purple potatoes. Both dinners were... More

Wild Sage is an excellent restaurant if you happening to be visiting from out of town or you're new to the area. We've been frequenting it since it first opened about 10 years ago. Last night we decided to have dinner there once again. It has been about 4 months since we were there last. What struck us was that... More

In all truth, I had to sit back and reflect on your review for a couple of days to decide how to best reply. As we approach our 11 year anniversary, I took this opportunity to flip back through my "mental card file" and remember the different dishes and approaches we have taken over the years. We actually change our... More

I'm a frequent business traveler to Spokane and I have skipped Wild Sage for 2 years because locals told me it was too expensive... I had the best burger ever and it was only $16! Sure, some items are higher, but when a classy place makes a reasonably priced and amazing burger, you know they're doing things right!

Thank Josh R
Tom S, Owner at Wild Sage American Bistro, responded to this review

I agree, we make a killer burger! In my opinion, if you walk into a nice high end restaurant and see a hamburger, order it. If you think about it, it's the all time favorite American meal. It deserves attention to detail like any other great dish. More

We went to Wild Sage to celebrate a friend's birthday. The food is incredible, the staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and the atmosphere is very impressive. This is the best restaurant in every category that somebody could judge a restaurant. Reading other reviews, yes it may seem "a little expensive for Spokane" but its priced accordingly.... cheap food isn't good... More
