Diner Reviews
  • "The food was great and the service was very good. We were able to have an enjoyable romantic meal before catching a concert at the Diamond Center."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Good food, but pricey. Server was friendly and attentive."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "We have eaten here many times, particularly enjoying their summer specials. These specials have gone down in quality each year. While I understand prices have gone up, they have reduced what they offer; first dropping the glass of wine, next year the salad. Now it's an entree & dessert. And the price was $29/pp....not much of a bargain. We even had to keep our fork between salad and entree. Not a sign of a first class restaurant. Won't be going back; at least Not until we hear of an improvement. Really a disappointment!"

  • "It can be romantic when it's not terribly busy. Particularly during the summer weeknights it's a very nice restaurant for romantic dinner."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "We always go to the Agave on special occasions, i.e. birthdays or anniversaries and the experience has never been disappointing."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "We have gone there for years. This was not the best experience we had there. The food was okay but expensive for what you got. The service seemed slow."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We have eaten at this restaurant before; the food was excellent, good portions.This time the server kept asking if we would like more bread, we finally found out why.The price was over 25.oo for the entrée. 1st-2 tiny carrots, 2 small shrimp, 2 small mussels, 3 tiny bay scallops, half lobster tail smaller than my little finger and 2 little stalks of broccoli with no heads, just stems.2nd-4 tiny shrimp with a 1/4 slice of very thin bacon, a small scoop of mashed potatoes & a smaller scoop of sweet mashed. We asked for manager who told us "we charge what the food cost" She was so rude and sarcastic, we will never set foot in Agave again."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • " The portions are generous so bring a doggie bag....and a cooler. My favorite is the Louisiana Cajun pasta."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "We had the Cedar Planked Salmon and Agave Margaritas. It was great. We will be returning for another special night out."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "A well kept secret. Great place to have dinner with a very good wine list. We eat there at least once a month and always receive great service and food."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Six of us had a very good experience when we ate lunch there. The food was very good. The dining room is attractive and quiet."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "This was said to be the best of the town, however I had scallops that were the consistency of a rubber ball and beef wellington that was cooked well done."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "We had the 2 for $30 dinner and it was excellent. Our server was great and the food presentation is as good as any I have seen. Great value and excellent food. We have never been disappointed with this restaurant."

  • "The Chef does an excellent job on taste and presentation. Their "specials" are well done."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Wonderful meal, wonderful and friendly service, and wonderful ambience. The meal and over all experience was very relaxing. The waitress did not rush us, and with our coffee she just let us sit before the bill came. Most places diners are rushed , they bring the bill so the hint is 'it's time to go'. We enjoyed our evening out, as for us it was a nice getaway."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "H, we had great service and the food was fantastic. We will be back!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Food. Was not as good as usual. The prime rib was just so-so, and the salmon stuffed scallops was not as filling or tasty as before."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Food presentation was exquisite, no noise distraction. Food looked fresh and crisp, which explains why the taste far exceeded my expectation. The price for the meals are more than fair compared to the overall product. We will be going back again, and we will be recommending The Agave to fanily and friends. It is now our favorite restaurant."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "The waitress was courteous and very attentive to our requirements. Food was excellent."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "There were very few guests at the restaurant when we went in so we were seated right away even though we were earlier than our reservation."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Haven't been to Agave before and was very disappointed in the cafeteria style seating and decor. The server was fantastic; friendly/personable, checked back on us so although it was busy we didn't feel ignored. Took a long time to get our food but the hot dish was warm, the salad was crisp and the presentation of the food was overall very pleasing."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We had reservations for a party of 6, after a concert show at the same location. Predictably, the restaurant was busy, but a 45 minute wait seemed too long."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We were taken to our table, no one came by for 15 minutes. We waved down an employee and asked for water. She brought water and bread. The waistress finally came after 15 minites to take our order. She then came by another 15 minutes later to tell us that the special that we order was still going to be quite a while. After a total of 50 minutes at our table, we were served bread and water. We left without eating dinner."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Disjointed reception: guests with reservation that arrived early after the concert were told no changes earler than 1hr-1hr 10min..new guests were being told 20-30 minutes. We were arrived at 1745 for an 1815 reservation..were seated at 1825. Food seemd a bit slow to arrive...when mine arrived the plate was hot but the food was lukewarm...I was 1/3 thru the meal before server re-visited the table to check...she promptly returned it to the the kitchen...when it returned it was amazing...well presented and hot"

  • "Great place to eat, good service, reasonable prices and close to where i live."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Last time we were there with friends and our experience was very sad. Food wasn't hot, and they wanted to piecemeal fix the meals and no apology from the manager. This time, although our special meal requests weren't accommodated the meal was enjoyable."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "Great food,enjoyable place for friends to gather for lovely evening."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "Food and presentation were excellent. Service was good and overall, a good dining experience."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "We generally always have good food at Agave. That being said, the service is generally just the opposite. I really don't understand why a nice restaurant like this doesn't step it up when it comes to service. Whenever we have gone here, it is NEVER full. I truly believe that is due to the sub-par service."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "I live in Rio Rico, Arizona. The Agave serves as a special occasion retreat for my wife and me. The food is beautifully presented and always to the specific order. We have been accompanied by other couples and all the varied food choices that were ordered were relished by all. The personnel with whom we interact all are warm and sociable. The personnel, food choices, and ambience are the reason we travel from Rio Rico to celebrate a special occasion with you. Today is my 80th birthday and my wife's birthday is September and my children are working with JULIETA ALVAREZ to have a special family birthday at the AGAVE in September. You do not disappoint. "

  • "We go to the Desert Diamond every time we come to Southern Arizona either the Buffet or the Agave. Both are very good with the atmosphere being very different in each. The Agave in our opinion is a very nice restaurant and for our 57th wedding anniversary we went last Sunday afternoon and had the "2 for 30" special. This was one of the nicest meals we have every had not only here but elsewhere in our travels. The presentation was excellent and the food was also excellent. The service was very good. The background music(?) was too loud. This was not anything special they made up just for us as they did not know it was our anniversary. Both my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the meal on our special day."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "After 1 hour and 45 minutes, we finally received our appetizer. We spoke with the manager, only to find she really does not care. Four (4) people from our party got their food and scarfed it down in 7 minutes to get to the concert, but nobody else received any food or apology. The four (4) that ate said the food was ok, but who wants to be ignored for 2 hours to get what was supposed to be a "fine dining experience"? Next time we hit a concert, we definitely will not be stopping at that place. "

  • "We had the specials, a lot of good food at a very inexpensive price! Had not been there for a while, but will be returning in the near future."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Food was not cooked properly 2 times Had the 2 for 30 Steak was tough and under cooked twice and the fish what ever it was not very tasty, 6 customers in rest and had to send the bus person 3 times to find her, dessert ???????????? we have eaten there quite often and this was the worst "
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "One of the key attractions for dinning at the Agave is the ambience. Contrary to many of todays restaurants, the Agave provides for a quiet oasis to enjoy a excellently prepared and professionally served meal while actually being able to talk and be heard by your spouse or a group of friends. "
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "We have enjoyed several special dinners here and almost cosistantly are pleased with both the service and the food. Being in a casino, we appreciate its attention to providing a pleasant upper end atmosphere rather than a noisy cafe feel. We patronize it for the food and ambiance. The wait staff is great!"

  • "Celebrated a wonderful Mother's Day at the Agave. The special menu was spectacular for the price and the service was excellent as always, even though all the tables were full of celebrants. With my Open Table reservation there wasn't even a wait! I would recommend this restaurant to anybody anytime, but it is especially good on special occasions as neither the food nor the service slips a bit. "
