    Flexible and Accommodating

    We were very happy with our experience at Sage Bistro. Nicky was an amazing coordinator, responding quickly to emails and was able to accommodate us into the busy summer schedule for viewings of the venue as well as decorating the night before! They were very helpful regarding food allergies (I have quite a few allergies and wanted to be able to eat all the food at my own wedding). They even went as far as to bring a separate plate to the head table so I could enjoy one of the buffet options without nuts in it. The space itself doesn’t require a lot of decorations and has a beautiful view, excellent for evening photos. Overall we had an excellent experience at Sage.

    Wonderful Experience!!

    Our wedding could not have turned out more successful and besides our wedding planner, Nicky Lau is the reason everything turned out so well! Our guests were floored by how beautiful the venue was, how organized and courteous the servers were, and especially how delicious the food was! Nicky was so helpful throughout the entire process from the moment we decided to book Sage; we emailed him almost weekly to several times a day and he always replied promptly and with very useful insight. We had to make several changes due to guest requirements and sometimes we just changed our minds, but Sage was incredibly compliant and easy to deal with. If I ever get married again (haha :P), I would absolutely consider coming back to Sage! Thank you Nicky and team for all of your professional and wonderful help!

    Everything was perfect!

    We can not recommend Sage Bistro enough! We were extremely happy with this beautiful venue and it’s staff, especially Nicky! Nicky was so quick to respond to all of our needs, was very flexible and lovely to work with. He helped us with so much of the wedding planning from the small details to the grand vision, and ensured that our wedding day went flawlessly.

    The food was also excellent! Our guests loved it and continued to talk about the food for several days after. The wait staff were polite, courteous and knowledgeable.

    You cannot find a better value and quality in a wedding venue than Sage. It’s a beautiful space with amazing views, excellent price and top notch service! Thanks again to Nicky and all the staff at Sage Bistro for helping to make our wedding day everything we dreamed of!

    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. 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.
