Diner Reviews
  • "It was a busy Saturday evening before a performance in adjacent show venue. Once the staff figured out which server was assigned to our table, the meal and service was excellent."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We've touted this restaurant to our friends so they joined us this trip, only to be disappointed. They weren't that busy, but it took a very long time to get the salads and appetizer, followed by another very long wait for the entrees. Unfortunately the vegetables and potatoes (white and sweet) were both cold. First the waiter just wanted to bring us fresh vegetables. Then the manager just wanted to bring fresh potatoes where we finally insisted on them redoing the entire plates. Every other restaurant not only apologizes but offers a free dessert or free glass of wine for the poor performance on the entrees. Not this restaurant. Noticed a new manager, she needs some customer service training. Probably will be awhile before we return."

  • "We always choose the Agave for special occasions as we can count on the food, service and whole experience."

  • "Unfortunately one can not compare the quality of the food with a chef of previous years. I had ordered fish and chips The french fries were done just right but the fish was soggy with oil. We love the restaurant for the the service and the the ability to have relaxing visits with our friends. Please improve the quality of the food preparation We would like to return. Sunshine."

  • "I made a reservation for 6:15 for dinner on an event night. I was told they overbooked and would I change to 6:30. When I arrived, I was informed that I was #7 and would have to wait. There were empty tables, yet we weren't seated until 6:50 with tickets for a concert that started at 8:00. Never again will I inhale a $21 prime rib before a show. This was the 2nd time this happened and it will be the last."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Mad a 6:30 reservation so we could attend an 8:00 concert. Our 6:30 reservation was not ready until 6:40. The food arrived at 7:40. The noise level was unbearable, I needed earplugs. We made the concert on time, but was not in enough time to spend time at the vendors for purchases. Food was ok not great."

  • "Confusion regarding reward points...Our bill was somewhere around 35.00 I gave her my players card I totaled the tip looking at the 35.00 however after my reward points were taken off our total only came to 10.00 so the waitress (who was good) ended up with $25.00 tip. Didn't realize it until the next day after reviewing my receipt. I guess I should have looked at the bill closer however someone should have pointed out the obvious mistake."

  • "Agave is always a very pleasant dining experience. House wines are reasonably priced but otherwise the wine list is limited. Three at our table ordered the prime rib special that was delived to varying doneness specifications and was excellent. The fourth diner had an excellent cod dish (the waitress candidly advised against the swordfish as being dry). The strawberry shortcake dessert (part of the special) was a desert treat."

  • "My son and I took my daughter to Agave to celebrate her 21st birthday so that (1) she could enjoy her first (legal) margarita with her mom and bro and (2) her bro wanted to teach her how to play blackjack. It was nice that we could do both things in the same location! Our server was excellent; the wait for our food was inordinately long, but you were busy, and the food was tasty. The piece of cake with candle was a great touch and much appreciated. Although we are all now over 21, we will return. I have taken family/friends to the Agave previously and all have always enjoyed their dinners."

  • "Enjoyed our dinner prior to seeing the performance at the Desert Diamond center on Saturday. Reduced menu, efficient service, well staffed and enjoyable food. Very, very convenient."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We had a. Long walk from the parking lot to the restaurant that was difficult as we'd had our daughter from Montana with us who is recovering from cancer treatment in Phoenix. How does one schedule a ride from the parking lot to the restaurant? It was a family get together for her and her brothers from Minnesota. We waited over an hour for our food and her oxygen tank was failing and we had the wrong cord for recharging it. We told our waitress twice of our predicament and ended up boxing our meal and getting a shuttle ride back to our car. Our outing was expensive and a failure as the food doesn't taste as good the next day. I inquired at the desk about the shuttle ride going back twhen I saw one arrive with another group."

  • "My wife and I had a great dinner - filet mignon and salmon - service was also great!"
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "The prices are way up--for dinner no more salad or soup offered prior to serving entree---removed many favorites from menu ie. pork chops, ribs---poor choices of desserts--food quality seems just fair---we used to go to the Agave frequently---doubt we will be back for awhile---maybe try it for lunch---one good factor is good service"
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "We frequently choose the Agave for meeting friends for a good dinner. The menu is varied so everyone has great choices. One had fish, 2 had prime rib, another had lamb chops, etc. The chicken tortilla soup was excellent, as always, and the salad. (Which I did not order) was beautifully plated and looked very tasty. The service was quite good, not intrusive, and the server was attentive."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "The Agave appears to be deteriorating. Twice now, the food was excellent, but the service has been very poor. The restaurant did not appear to be very busy, but the servers were almost invisible."

  • "Our company from CO enjoyed the ambience, the food and the service. We have been there many times, and this was the best."

  • "Not too far from Green Valley and often missed or overlooked, but very good meals for a reasonable price. Interesting dishes with great flavor!"

  • "very good all around,hostess should read and follow request that is filled out,you dont have to seat a party next to a table that has quests"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "The Agave restaurant can be depended on for consistently good food, that is well prepared and carefully served. It is also a great place for special times like Thanksgiving and Christmas when they serve affordably priced and delicious meals for people who chose to celebrate rather than cook."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Agave has become one of our favorites in the Sahuarita / Green Valley area. Neither of us felt like cooking on a Friday so we went out. Although my wife has a few dietary restrictions the chef custom prepared her plate to her satisfaction. Although we there are closer restaurants to us, Agave never fails us and we can always count on a wonderful meal."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "I had the chicken and pasta in a cream sauce. The blackened chicken was way over cooked. the edges were tough and dry and the pasta was bordering on tasteless. The only thing that made me give you a fairly good rating was that the two people with me enjoyed their meal"
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "Food and service were terrific we will be back. Hubby wants to try the ahi tuna salad. The only confusion was regarding my rewards points, desk said I had a certain amount but it didn't all transfer to restaurant but some to free play. First day of new card and manager was more than helpful and accommodating."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "The dinner was excellent, as was the service. Happy to see the strawberry shortcake has been upgraded and is now quite good. Beware that if you plan to take advantage of their specials, you not only must have their casino card and a picture id, but the casino card must be one of their new ones. We had scurried around and found our old ones, but no special for us."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Five days per week for a supposedly high end dining experience in a remote desert area says: WE DON'T NEED YOUR BUSINESS. PLUS you must have access to the internet to make a reservation! Don't go here expecting service....................very snooty for a one horse town."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "We had a super meal. Great fun; great service and great food. Only problem was the bill was not correct but we didn't know till we got home. A friend from New Jersey was with us and he paid the whole bill. We all came for the $19 special prime rib dinner. We were charged $24 and didn't realize it. Our friend added a nice tip on the bill only to find out later an automatic tip was added so he double tipped. There were 7 of us so it cost him an extra $100......OUCH."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Great place and convenient, internet accommodation option worked perfect. On time seating with no waiting. Food was excellent, great presentation. It is obvious that there has been a major improvement in the preparation and service."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "I was figuring my bill after I got home and believe the tip was in the check? Not noticing, I added a tip and if it was in, the customer should be told when he receives the bill. Our waitress was great but I think she received a double tip and that would have been too much."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "The dinner rolls need improving, everthing else was excellent"

  • "We went to Agave for my husband's birthday. At first the service was slow. We waited quite some time to have even our drink order taken. Our dinner reservations were for 6PM. When I ask for "house" red wine she told me they were out of all house red wines. REALLY! Who runs out of house wine at the peak of dinner hour or ever as far as that goes. She then offered Robert Mondovi (a VERY cheap wine) for $10 a glass. However, things went well after that. I notified the waitress, Vickie, that I needed gluten free. She was very accommodating and assured me that she would notify the chef. She mentioned, upon serving each dish, that the chef assured her it was gluten free. The food was good, beautifully plate and the service was good."

  • "We chose this for a special occasion (Valentine's Day) and were pleased with being seated right at our reservation time and with the service and food. However, by the time we were seated (7:45), they had run out of the featured soup on the fixed menu (they substituted another soup which was OK); and they ran out of the roses they were giving for the occasion--that was disappointing. Overall, we always enjoy eating at this restaurant"
