I will check it out and let everyone know what is like. I have walked by several times and it definitely has a Mizuna-type feel to it. I am excited to see what they have to offer as well.

My husband and I ate there on Friday evening, and I must say, I was very impressed! Top on our list was the breaking bread platter, amazing popovers, and divine desserts, including the new york syle cheesecake and fantastic upside down apple pie with caramel and thyme. Definitely recommend! We had a reservation, and as the night progressed, saw why it was recommended. The place filled up very quickly! We had excellent service, and were even visited at our table by one of the owners. Couldn't have been a better dinner experience! Can't wait to return!

Big Disappointment

We heard about the WILD SAGE AMERICAN BISTRO, so we thought we'd give it a try.

The 1st time we went there the service was rude, slow, and provential.

We thought we might have had a bad experience, so we thought we'd try it again, a month later.

To make a long story short, the service was still bad -- Both times it's been consistent; and an absolute disappointment.

Here's the highlights & consistent pattern for both visits:


- Downtown Spokane
- Business is waining since it opened, so easier to get in


- Unfriendly Service
- Provincial, Rude, & Haughty
- Slow to move customers from waiting area to tables
- Small Waiting Area - Conflicts with Tables (People Sitting)
- Overpriced / Food not worth the Entree Pricing
- Staff needs Customer Service Training (ie: Who's the Customer)

SUMMARY: Not Recommended - Better choices in Spokane

Wild Sage | 916 W. 2nd Avenue | Map It | (509) 456-7575
[Excerpt From Spokesman-Review] "Two men are launching a downtown Spokane restaurant in early 2006, offering diners another option for lunches and dinners.

The new eatery, Wild Sage American Bistro, is expected to open in February, said Tom Sciortino, president of the group putting together the restaurant.

Wild Sage will also stay open late on weekend and most nights and offer dinners seven nights a week, and lunches Monday-Saturday.

'We want to showcase our desserts and we want to capture the downtown lunch business,' said Sciortino. A lounge and bar will offer selections from dozens of area wines, added Sciortino.

'We think restaurants around us create a synergy,' said Sciortino. Activity taking place nearby, including the Davenport Hotel, helps bring more people into downtown, he added."
