Their tapas is great, and a great deal if you come between 5-8pm. Their salalds are good, but they go a little heavy on the dressing.

We had an awesome experience
We had an awesome experience here! The hostess was wonderful and accommodated us even when we had an extra person and had to start brunch late. The sangria never stopped flowing, and the food was very good. Service was great as well.

Not the best Cuban food in
Not the best Cuban food in the city, or even in the village (That would be Cafe Habana!) but very good tapas, a great drink menu, and a relaxing atmosphere for people who hate having crazy house or techno music pumped in while they struggle to carry on polite dinner conversation.

This is a very pleasant little place with good food, attentive service and a nice friendly atmosphere. as I was there only for brunch and alone it is hard to say much about the food on the rest of the menu but what I had was very good.

Amazing food. People were
Amazing food. People were kind and helpful with the menu. Unlimited sangria and brunch well worth the $28. Our server acknowledged it was taking a while for our food to come out, but he made up for it by giving us an appetizer and a side dish on the house.

Good Job Agozar
Made a last minute reservation here for Mother's Day Brunch and was worried considering that it wasn't a recommendation. But what a great surprise! Our party of nine arrived an hour early and the restaurant made absolutely no fuss about seating us early. We waited less than 10 minutes. We partook in the Pre-Fixe Brunch and it was absolutely DELICIOUS. The fruit salad with fresh whip cream was a great way to start the meal. With the meal came two carafes of Sangria that was nothing to write home about but the food to follow more than made up for it. Our party selected almost every dish on the menu, making it possible to really sample what Agozar had to offer. The true test was when my very picky mother could not stop raving about the food!

Good choice of drinks, highly recommend the grape mojito. Excellent choice of tapas and very helpful and attentive service. Vibrant little gem, reminded me of when I studied in Cuba!

Try the espresso martini!
I went to Agozar Cuban Bistro with a group of six. We were seated quickly (with a reservation, of course) and our waiter was kind and attentive. He made excellent drink recommendations and I had a great Cuban Colada, a Huracån margarita, and, the most heavenly, an espresso martini. The food was delicious and we mostly just shared a bunch of tapas. We ate there around 9PM on a Saturday before checking out bars in the area. Surprisingly, Agozar wasn't too crowded despite its East Village location. I'm no authority on Cuban food, but for tapas this place was great. Of course, if you go then you MUST try the espresso martini on the dessert menu. Outstanding!! I'll definitely be returning in a group again soon.

The best brunch and mojitos in town
We spend our Mojito Monday at Agozar but have not been there for brunch until Father's Day.
We took the kids. There is no children's menu but they made something on the spot for them. Kids had a great time. Everything (food, service and ambience) was outstanding. highly recommend Agozar.

Great menu, mediocre waitstaff
The food was fantastic. We split a bunch of dishes off several sections of the menu and everything was quite tasty. Our waiter seemed obviously stressed (perhaps due to the fact that there was a table of 10 nearby) and was not very friendly. My husband had to wait a while for a beer after everyone else's drinks had already come, and when he asked about it, the waiter seemed annoyed. He eventually let us know that, although we could still ask him for things, he was turning us over to another waiter so that he himself could focus on the larger party. We never even saw this "other waiter" and so could only order from the first waiter. It then took ages to pay, and they made an error with the credit cards after all that.

Fun Colorful Spot!
The menu is varied, allowing you to order tapas, a salad fit for a meal, or an entrée.

Great place for a delicious meal and a great time with friends or family. Not a big place. But if you make reservations, it's a great place for a group dinner. Plus the bar area is nice too (:
Love the paella and dulce de leche!!!

Delicious Food & Excellent Service
We came in with a group of four, all very excited to try Agozar because we had heard such great things. We were not disappointed, the menu had something for everyone and it was all delicious. Also, the service was friendly and attentive but not overbearing just the way it should be.
Whether you are already a fan of Cuban Cuisine or it's your first time, I recommend Agozar to everyone!

We explored the tapas which were tasty but not out of this world. However it was fun to have something different that you can't get just anywhere. Fun to explore new cuisine. Wait staff was ver attentive. Decor an ambiance was fun. Made for a fun evening in the neighborhood.

Glad to have found it.
10 of us met and had a wonderful afternoon with attentive service and delicious food!!

Great meal. We first got there and thought we would have to sit at a table top, but lo and behold there is a back room with table seating. We sat next to a window. It took a while to get a waiter. After a 5-10 minute wait we made sure to order our drinks and meals so we could get our food! After another 10 minute wait we finally got our drinks. They were delicious. Would def. recommend the Piñatine. After 20 minutes our meal finally came out and it was WELL worth the wait. I love vaca fritas and have been searching for a place that could cook it as well as they do in Miami. I was not disappointed. The yucas were delicious as well. Will def. be returning soon.

Delicious and energetic
This place is simply awesome. I have never had a bad meal at Agozar. The mojitos are awesome and the vaca frita is amazing. My girlfriend and I go to this place about every other month. The place definitely gets noisy later in the day so if you want a calm romantic dinner get there before 7pm and always get a reservation so you don't have to wait. The wait times can be long later in the night but believe me it is worth it. Just get yourself a mojito and chill. Enjoy the music and the company of your friends or special someone.

Great mojitos!! The masitas were almost entirely fat. I know pork belly is fatty, but usually there's a little meat layered between the fat. It should be split between at least 4 people. The ropa vieja and lechon were both great.

My family and I came to Agozar for Thanksgiving. It was our first time and we all enjoyed it. It was a fixed menu so everything was already set up but we can't wait to go back and try the items on their everyday regular menu!

Agozar Cuban Bistro a gem in the EV
I love this place, me and my friends have made this our annual outing for Thanksgiving dinner when we stay in the city! The drinks are fantastic, all the staff are friendly and attentive, and the food is delicious. A must try for anyone in the neighborhood.

I can't get enough of Agozar! The food is awesome! It's noisy but that's what creates the unique vibe. I recommend you make a reservation because the place is usually packed after 7pm.
