Diner Reviews
  • "Ate here with a group during the. Grand Prix of long beach,. Music was a little too loud, especially considering it was only 7 o'clock and there's no dance floor. Food was very good and nicely presented. Service was a bit slow, and some of the buss boys were overly keen on cleaning up the table, I guess it was because of the Grand Prix being in town since there's a lot of people coming and going and generally very busy. All In all a place I would come back too."

  • "We went for Eat LBC - Restaurant Week Long Beach, and thought the food was worth the wait, however, it was excessively slow. This restaurant would be greatly improved if they could work on better service."

  • "Agaves has a hip, modern vibe, and is located on Pine Avenue, the LBC's downtown Restaurant Row. The prix fixe menu, offered for Eat LBC week, was a great way to go. The menu included suggested tequila flights to pair with each of the three courses, which enhanced our experience. For starters, we tried both the Agaves salad and the Ceviche de Mariscos (both fresh and delicious). We sampled each of the three Eat LBC entrees with the favorite being the super-fresh and delicious Marisco Chile Relleno. Our server was lovely and helped guide a few of our choices. The only disappointment was the churro served for dessert. It took *forever* to be served and was nothing special. Otherwise a 5-star experience. We'll definitely be back!"

  • "Made reservations late afternoon. Arrived on time only to be told we had to wait 5-10 min for a table. I asked if there was an area we can sit while a table opens up. Was told we could sit at the bar (no luck) or at an open bar type table and order a drink while we wait. We selected the bar type table. 15 min later still sitting and no one has asked us for our drink order. Realized table had been open. I then see a couple come in and they were seated. I asked the hostess why were we passed up on the table. She commented she wasnt aware we had been waiting for a table.. really???. Bad service all night. 1st quest was whether or not we had a groupon, not even what do we want to drink. Overpriced. Wont be returning."

  • "Agave's has great potential------altho currently the service is very slow, the drink quality is uneven, and the hostess seemed unaware of the fact we made reservations (this happened 3 times in a row). Just iron out those kinks , and this little gem is gonna shine like a star. The food is unique and original and interesting---don't miss the desserts! We love the "Day of the Dead" decor in the bar area---edgy yet sublime. Give this place a try, but be patient, they are still developing their rhythm."

  • "Took my (very senior) auntie to Agaves after the theater, not sure what we were getting into, because it seemed a bit pricey and date/youth-oriented for her. We ordered off the happy hour menu so we could sample. The food was very nice - some things better than others, but definitely several items hit out of the park. The guacamole is a standout. I loved the empanadas, my aunt loved the grilled cauliflower, we both devoured the "el gringo" soft tacos which are filled with flavor, and we shared good nachos (could use a little more cheese) and taquitos (beautifully plated too). But most of all, the young staff treated my aunt like a queen, made her feel like their special guest and made sure she was happy. I will go back for that alone."

  • "Great Brussels sprout appetizer! Really good, and different, Latin menu. Lots of really good tequilas."

  • "Delicious food and some really friendly and knowledgeable waitstaff ruined by the lack of leadership or something. From the waiter standing in the street smoking a cigarette while wearing his uniform to a 30 minute wait for melted ice cream and blistering hot churro that obviously sat in the window too long (is there an expediter?) or the incessant thump thump music coming over cheap speakers so all we hear is the annoying parts of the music to lack of quality control over the food this restaurant could be really good for The LBC but some corporate decisions are missing the idea that a restaurant is about the experience and is greater than the sum of it's parts."

  • "went on a Wednesday night and while the 6 seats at bar were all taken the restaurant was vacant at 7 p.m., not even a host nor waitress.. about 8ish all 4 tables around us got filled, but with only 1 waitress service was not what we expected. The food was delicious and the drinks amazing. Heard this place is great on weekends, think we'll come back & try then"
