DINER REVIEW • FEB 17, 2013
Sat night I had my son's birthday party here on the patio. It was disorganized and chaotic. Our server (Bryan...Ryan?) seemed annoyed and frankly, nonchalant and amused in a weird way: just didn't give a crap? We wanted to speak to a manager when some food never showed up but we couldn't flag down our server. Finally his assistant or (another server?..Tracey?) noticed we were unhappy and notified our server. She also brought us the chips and salsa we'd asked for an hour earlier. Our real server then came over and apologized saying he was "caught off guard" by us coming at different times. He had other tables across the restaurant. He blamed his supervisors for not paying attention and stepping in to help out. He was sweet and apologetic but the damage has been done for us.
NEVER AGAIN! Disgusted, with every aspect of this place, from the ownership to the food and the drinks in between.
Was part of a sizable group (a dozen or so) 40-something parents out to see this Journey tribute band last night. Was VERY glad my wife and I didn't open our wallets for the food though, was offered tastes of several of my friend's plates and it rates equal to Del Taco at best. Drinks were overpriced and watered down also.
To cap off my night, I received a call from my teenage daughter in a crisis, I opened an unmarked door to step "outside" where I could hear her over the music, and noticed that I was in a filthy, disgusting outside area where they stored both old furniture and food on pallets (really?). About 2 minutes later, I am confronted with a fellow who puts his face within a foot of my phone screaming "you can't be out here" and proceeds to give me a verbal hazing while I'm trying to talk to my daughter, even though I explained that I was just a dad trying to deal with a family crisis. Got the same from another guy who showed up claiming to be the owner and actually asked me to apologize to his guy for raising my voice (really?... again).
From what I could see, we were among their best customers last night, and they not only fed us filth, but chose to treat a concerned father like a juvenile delinquent. Needless to say, me and my friends are all "locals" who will not only stay away, but do our best to make sure others do too.
And now they can also count on the health department showing up to take a good look at their food storage practices. Well earned gentlemen.
DONT EAT HERE!!! – May 20, 2011 @ 8:15pm
AS I WAS TRYING TO LEAVE THE RESTAURANT PARKING LOT, I WAS BLOCKED IN BOTH DIRECTIONS AND A WHITE VAN, WHICH WAS OBVIOUS TO EVERYONE ESPECIALLY THE STAFF HAD BLOCKED EVERYONE FROM GOING THAT DIRECTION. SO I WENT THE OTHER WAY AND A SUV LEXUS WAS LEFT IN THE PARKING AREA. WHEN I TOLD THE SECURITY AND THEN THE MANAGER THEY KEPT TELLING ME I SHOULD OF TOLD THE NON-SPEAKING ENGLISH VALETS! LUDICROUS, AND I KEPT POINTING OUT THEY THEY SHOULD BE WATCHING ESPECIALLY THE WHITE VAN. NOW BECAUSE OF THEIR ATTITUDES-I TOLD THEM THEY ARE COMMITTING-"FALSE IMPRISONMENT. ONE OF THE SECURITY GUYS THREATENED ME AND SAID, "I'LL TAKE OFF MY SHIRT AND WE WILL GO OVER THERE AND SETTLE THIS!" THEN THE MANAGER TOLD ME THAT I BETTER BE CAREFUL OR I WILL GET HURT! BESIDES IT IS A FIRE HAZZARD!
Any person who intentionally restricts another person's freedom of movement without their consent and without legal justification may be liable for false imprisonment, including police officers, security guards, store owners, medical professionals, employers, and other individuals. Moreover, false imprisonment may occur in a number of settings, such as in a room, on the streets, or even in a moving vehicle.
False imprisonment is both a crime and a civil wrong. A person claiming civil false imprisonment typically seeks to be freed and may recover damages for the interference with his or right to move freely. Civil damages may take the form of compensatory damages (for any injuries sustained), nominal damages (a small sum to acknowledge the harm that was done), and/or punitive damages (to punish the wrongdoer
Best Bruch in L.A.! – I can not believe anyone would give this wonderful place a bad review, but I guess that is what freedom of speech is for - right?
This restaurant has the best brunch I have ever seen. From 10a-2pm, unlimited everything you can possibly imagine. If you thought of it, it will probably be there. We always have a great experience at this place, and every time I have guest from out of town I take them to Sagebrush then hear about it later when our good memories come up. Everyone I know has loved this place and wants to go back when they come visit me again! I also love the freedom to be able to bring children and have a great time with them as well.
AVOID THIS DUMP!!! – Lousy food - with hair in the salad? Check. Slow, surly service? Check. Ankle-deep urine in the bathroom? Check. A "manager" who gets combative if you complain? Check.
This neighborhood nuisance should have been closed long ago. It's an overpriced, unfriendly, dirty dump - much like it's sister bistro in Santa Monica - Ye Olde Kings (lice-ridden) Head.
Avoid, Avoid, AVOID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Worst Service In TOWN – nothing unique about this place it changed hands and the service is lousy, they said they stayed open till 11:30 we brought our birthday party there, and they told us to leave around 9:30 they were closing, I will NEVER go back to that place again our children did not really appreciate the butts and boobs hanging out either, it is not a family place anymore go to the Latigo Kid in Agoura it is family and good food and they appreciate good familys to come there, tell everyone not to bother with this trumped up Sagebrush cantina any longer it is not what it used to be.
Great facelift! – I've been coming to this place for years and I can honestly say that things are finally getting better here! They are under new ownership now and the owners did a great job giving this place a facelift! Tons of TVs were added and tons of new beer making this a great spot to watch sports. My husband and I try to make it in once a week and hang out on the bar and watch the wild people around us. So many wackos go through that place. The only thing I would like to see a change in is the menu, which I was told that it is in the works! Sagebrush is a perfect summer hang out for everyone.... cant wait for the weather to be nice again to sit out on the patio.
good bloody marys – i grew up in this place and worked there along with my sisters many years ago. I go there for sat. morning breakfast with friends who meet here
Rude Behavior, No account for Paying customers – Went to the place with friends and had high hopes. Once seated the service was slow. No Live music, The place was supposed to stay open till 11pm but closed at 930 and even after spending over $150 in food and drink the security personal yelled at us to start walking towards the door with no warning or explanation, Upon asking to speak to the manager we were faced with a rude Mgr that disregarded any complaints and simply asked us to leave cause they were closed. The waitress informed us that the places closes down early if there are not getting any new business!!! Would not go there again even though the place is good and could have become our next hang out spot! disappointed.
