Stage Kitchen & Bar
Flavor forward cuisine crafted through intuition..
The best meal we have had in years! Chef Pushkar is truly firing on all cylinders. We stepped outside of our comfort zone, and cannot wait to go back. If you appreciate complex flavors and spices This is your place! Absolutely worth going to.
Space is beautifully done, most of the servers and bartenders are excellent (couple who were either overwhelmed or not experienced), but the menu is all over the place and confusing. While i understand the “global” aspect of the theme with a foundation in Indian cuisine, much of the menu doesn’t make sense - why is there lardo offered as a stand-alone menu item and while it’s not ur typical Indian menu, if you’re going to have naan and biryani, how can there not be a daal dish??!! Lastly, the room was somewhat busy and it was the perfect opportunity for the Chef to walk around and greet the guests since they are a relatively new restaurant. Instead, he just stood in front of the open kitchen at the pass, even at times when there was not much for him to do, instead of working the floor. He needs a lesson in hospitality.
Beautiful dining atmosphere, Sam our server was excellent, and very present with us. Food and wine was fabulous.
Very interesting menu but worth experimenting! Quite pricey but quality food. Service was great and helps us navigate the menu. Drinks were awesome but the bar was SO loud we had to move outside to hear each other.
So many wonderful flavors and varied menu items for all tastes! Sweat a great dining experience!
Absolutely the best restaurant around!!!! Service and food are great. Food is fresh and has interesting fresh flavors! Try it!
Party of four: arrived had short wait for reservation on week night. Ordered two or three things per person to try.
First round of items came out quickly.
Then we sat for an hour and no entrees came. Waiter somehow was not coming around.
Got up and asked for manager. He came and apologized and we requested that we not pay for the items as we did not want them any more.
The food is great, but there was no reason for this to happen on our second visit.
The food is excellent. Not at all spicy but well seasoned. It would be nice if a few spicy dishes were added. We ended up loving the vegetable dishes the most. Good wine list. Saldo by the glass went great with everything.
We'll be back soon because we want to try more dishes we couldn't get to.
Between two of us we tried 7 dishes. The lamb kabob won hands down but everything else cam in second. Except for the lamb we went Vegetarian, perfect. Nothing too spicy.
Good bar, interesting cocktails were being made. I can’t wait to go back.
We had a fantastic experience! Will definitely be going again!
interesting menu and food was very good. Service was excellent and prices reasonable. Two of us shared 2 small plates, 1 main, 1 veg and ir was plenty! I would like to go back and try the rest of this menu😀. The only problem was the noise level. There was no need for music on top of the conversation, which made it unnecessarily difficult to hear.
A little noisy and not cheap, but very good food.
The food and service are completely outstanding. The flavor in ever dish is phenomenal. It’s tapas style which I wasn’t aware of before dining. My only comment is that I think it’s a little overpriced.
Could’ve chosen anything off the menu I was familiar with and it still would’ve been like trying something brand new. Everything was fantastic!
It is really loud, food was juSt okay. If i go back we will sit outside.
Great food. Brussels sprouts, fire roasted cauliflower, garlic and cheese naan bread, tuna ceviche. Everything was delicious. Good drinks too. Inside had a nice vibe but was loud. We ate outside which was quieter.
Love the selection on menu, everything was tasty and unique. Wait staff was very professional but casual, like they came from an urban area!! Two female bartenders could have been friendlier ... they were busy but I think there’s a certain way to handle busy! Love this place... so happy it’s in our little paradise. Already booked again.
Best meal we’ve had in a long time. I keep thinking about it days later. A must hit. And it’s beautiful. Must try the whole snapper, pork shank, beets, naan bread...
Love the food style...modern dishes inspired by Indian spices. Really creative and delish. Would highly recommend: tuna ceviche, veggie ceviche, ramen, tomahawk ribeye (I’d share), and the octopus.
How disappointing. At first we were teased! The menu was inventive and the ambiance seemed great. We ordered appetizers and nan. Delicious! But we had to wait too long to be served. We couldn’t find our server! Then again we had to wait too long for our long awaited Entre’s... finally they arrived..... well only three of the four. The fourth arrived 5 minutes later Uuuugh. We the all complained after this long wait that the food was overly salty. Except we could only complain to each other! Couldn’t find the server. None of us could finish our food. No one even came by and asked why? Until the meal was over and it was then too late. What started out to be great ended up with a unanimous 4 people agreeing to never return. Another ambitious restaurant in this location that won’t make it! Too bad...
Delicious food - subtle use of Indian palette of flavors
Wish it was not so noisy & outside space more charming
Some more attention to service needed.
Great new restaurant in north palm-fun and inventive menu. Took us some time to figure out the different options. Would suggest either a group of tapas or a main dish protein with some amazing sides. Can’t wait to go back!
First time dining with friends. The food, flavors and the execution of the food was outstanding. Some of the other issues were only related to new restaurant kinks and will be easily corrected with a few more nights. We will definitely return. Lots more menu to explore and a great bar menu.
Meal was lively but my wife’s dinner just never arrived
Excellent food. We walked to the restaurant which is nice. The wait staff was very helpful. Highly recommend this.
Service and food were fantastic. However, it was so loud in there, you couldn't hear the waitress talk about the food, it's prep or hear each other when trying to have a conversation. I am a loud Italian-American...kids tell me I talk too loud. So when someone can't hear me?! It's loud.
I will be back and either sit outside or order and take out. We had the Tile fish, Pork shank, Spicy cheddar naan, shrimp and grits, Mexican corn and Paunee Poree- which was to die for!! Food was perfect in every way- spices, textures, my pork fell off the bone- everything was spectacular...
Excellent food and service. The design of the dining room is beautiful. The small plates menu is perfect for sharing amongst the entire table. The two ceviches and the mushroom pastries were the highlights of an amazing dinner
I loved many “small-plate” items on the menu, as you get a chance to try various things. We had 4-5 items and drinks. Everything was delicious! Looking forward to coming back and trying new things.
This place is HOT! The vibe is energetic. Can be everyday dinning but I’d love a special occasion here too. The server knew every answer to every question without hesitation. Ellie really knew the ingredients, the flavors and the sizes of all dishes - even the ones just out that day. The food flavors are very fresh and clean. Lots of spice and herb but only “hot” when appropriate. ‘Bout time a place like this showed up! I had a prime tomahawk GRASS-FED steak. Where else can I get that? The catch of the day - golden tilefish- was excellent. The fish dip superb. This place is great.
Way too noisy!!! Too bad because the good is great
Not only noisy but loud music making it AWFUL
Enjoyed the food, service was quick and we actually would have preferred it to be more spread out. The noise level was very high and made conversation difficult. If we return, will sit outside.
The food and drinks are outstanding. Great presentation on the cocktails. It was refreshing to see a more unique menu in this area (we’ve got seafood covered!). The restaurant does needs a lot of work regarding service- very slow and existing staff is overwhelmed. Hopeful this is a new restaurant kink that will be resolved shortly! This place is worth a try.
Food was awesome. It was very noisy. Hard to have a conversation with the person at your table. Would request outdoor seating next time.
Amazing food, outstanding service...loved everything!
Stage Kitchen is not for everyone but rather diners who are willing to expand their dining horizons.... to move outside the more conventional herbs, spices and preparations. The rather limited menu offers not often seen options that are well prepared, interesting, visually atractive and delicious. Save the questions to the waiter ...the best approach is to dive into the menu and embrace your choices.
Service was so slow, we didn’t get to order until 55minutes after we were seated. Waiter didn’t explain anything, it was really bad. When chef came to our table to inquire about our meal I mentioned the bad service and he didn’t even acknowledged it
The food was pretty good and was prepared with some imagination, but the presentation wasn’t fabulous. Dishes are very small and very overpriced
Considering I've been twice in the under two weeks Stage has been open - I'll say I'm a HUGE fan! The Local Papaya, Charcuterie, Deviled Eggs, and Tulum Soon were all stars this time. All my love to the Stage Team!
Great inventive meal
Food was amazing. We shared several dishes, favorite was the tuna ceviche. We did have one dish we weren’t pleased with and our server took it back without question. Then the manager cane over immediately to make sure we order another dish at no charge. Our server was excellent. We will return with friends.
Exceptional food with an international flair. Food was prepared to perfection paired with unique herbs and spices. Stage is a first class dining experience.
