An exceptional dining adventure awaits you where modern and mountain meld together seamlessly, as you nestle into our intimate Canadian log building and enjoy breathtaking views in the heart of the Canadian Rockies.

Almost three decades as a family owned business, Sage Bistro and Wine Lounge features two distinct menus and dining experiences, while both are driven by sourcing quality ingredients from as many local purveyors and producers of fine foods to bring a taste to your palate.

It is a journey where you get to decide which direction you would like to take your taste buds – the classic sophistication of the bistro downstairs, or the contemporary flair of the upstairs wine lounge. Both choices feature a unique and varied wine selection while you enjoy the rustic and casual setting of being inside a log cabin in the mountains.



Over the weekend, enjoy the à la carte brunch served in our main level bistro and has been a longtime favourite among our locals and visitors alike. We also serve our weekday lunch menu and nightly dinner menu from the main bistro kitchen and large garden patio is also an option in the summer months for an al fresco experience.



Try our award-winning rosemary and port braised lamb shank, or our feature Alberta steak offerings. Fresh B.C. seafood is always at home on our dinner menu, as well as locally raised free-range chicken creations and be sure to try our signature seasonal creamy risotto. Choose from a hand-picked and eclectic selection of over 180 wines from our cellar, or ask our knowledgeable staff for a recommendation for pairing with your meal.


Take it to the next level & enjoy the warm, inviting atmosphere in our wine lounge with our snacks & small plates inspired menu. Choose your own cheese and charcuterie from an extensive list of local and international offerings. With an open concept & intimate kitchen experience inside & three intimate patios for summer nights, the wine lounge boasts a social setting to enjoy your own selections from our cheese list, or indulge in a variety of local & international charcuteries. Share amongst friends or family, our famous P.E.I. mussels in a garlicky white wine cream. Explore unique wines with more than 18 offered by the glass, or take flight with 3 different wines side by side, or choose from a curated selection of more than 25 unique beers.


We look forward to sharing these unique dining experiences with you soon!
