Lunching at Barangaroo is a tasty experience. With so many food choices your taste buds may have to be your guide to the restaurant of the day. Mine lead me to Wild Sage. I liked the location, on the right at the bottom of the stairs that lead from the Wynyard Walk and next to David Jones, so perfect to relax with a coffee or cold drink after a spot of shopping. There is a range of outdoor seating, perfect for people watching and soaking up the buzzy vibes of the area. Dining indoors is cosy, with the added benefit of the open kitchen, which gives the place a vibrant and welcoming feel and it's great to watch the chefs at work.
Service here is quick and friendly and staff are accommodating. When I ate here, I chose to sit outside as I love being outdoors, however, the weather had turned cold and I wasn't so keen to eat out in the wind. My waitress moved me to a table inside, even though they had all been reserved. I felt like a valued customer and enjoyed my meal even more. This definitely made me feel that I wanted to return.
There is also a well-stocked bar and plenty of choices for coffee, tea, smoothies, fresh juice and a personal favourite, the pineapple and mint frappe.
I ordered the Slow Cooked Lamb Salad, served with grilled halloumi, black lentils, crispy shallots, chilli, preserved lemon and kale, topped with pomegranate yoghurt and crispy bread. A very tasty and substantial meal and well priced at $22.
This is a popular place to eat, especially during the week with the lunchtime crowds flocking out of office buildings, so it's a good idea to make a reservation. Great for outdoor group bookings as there are larger tables outside and more space. Children are also well catered for.
The menu offers breakfast, brunch, share plates and dinner with a good range of cocktails making Wild Sage a perfect location for a pre-dinner drink either before dining there or heading off to another event.
