Sage was the first venue we looked at, and after researching several others, we quickly realized the advantages with booking with Sage: the price was fair, the venue was beautiful, and probably the deciding factor of all was having Nicky be the venue coordinator for our wedding. ... View more He was so meticulous, flexible, fast to respond to all of our emails/questions, friendly, helpful, and organized. On the wedding day and the months leading up, he went above and beyond his call of duty to make sure our day went smoothly. Even weeks after our wedding, our guests are still raving about the incredibly delicious food at Sage! Overall the venue was perfect for us: simplicity meets elegance. We were able to add our own personalities with the flexibility to decorate. Nicky was like a second Day of Coordinator for us, thinking of little details we didn’t even think of. We highly recommend Sage to anyone planning their wedding. While the location is a bit further away and was originally one of our areas of concern, it turned out to be a non-issue – we contacted taxi companies the night before advising them they will receive a lot of calls from our guests, and it turned out taxis were waiting 5 minutes away from UBC the night of our wedding. Overall our wedding was perfect. And we owe a large part of that to the incredible Sage Staff and to Nicky.

There are too many good things to say about this venue. First, located next to UBC Rose Garden, overlooking the ocean and mountains, the view is incredible. Second, the food is amazing.

Not only during cocktail and reception hours, they also helped us setting up and tearing down. The bartender is awesome, too. He is very friendly and welcoming, andin general, improved our party atmosphere. Last but not least, coordinator Nicky was great. He was very organized and helpful. We kept talking throughout the year, and he managed to answer all my questions within a day, and went all the way to fulfill my requests, big and small. Overall, we received many compliments from the guests on the venue and food, and we are very happy that we went to Sage for our wedding.

Since our daughter and future son-in-law were in New Zealand, my husband and I took planning their wedding at the Sage, University Centre, UBC. Nicky Lau was our contact person who was immensely helpful in appraising us of various options. He always responded to questions ... View more quickly, followed up with written note/plans, was flexible about various requests, and was present to introduce us to staff who would be working the day of the wedding.

Our Coordinator at UBC Sage Bistro (Nicky) was amazing. Nicky was always attentive to our needs and requests. Emails were always replied within hours. They were also flexible with set up and even let us drop off our decorations the day before. Most importantly, the food was ... View more phenomenal. We got lots of compliments on the food especially dessert. We had approximately 200 guests and had a family style buffet reception, we felt Sage could use extra staff to help with refilling food and clearing plates on the tables. Overall, I highly recommend Sage. The dining area opened up to a large patio. Guests enjoyed the stunning views of the mountains and sunset.
