I was very impressed and amazed at the simple yet how awesome the service was. They were there just enough, yet unlike other exquisite places with great menus and service where they literally interfere with any conversation and inter activeness with those who are eating the staff was perfect in their timing and balance of being too much verses too little. Plus when we needed special consideration on one of the entrees it was the waitress who came up with a wonderful solution to what was asked for and needed.

Reservations a mix up they rescheduled us three times. Seem to be confusion at front desk and not very welcoming. Servers untrained from everything from cleaning the tables serving the next course ...lots of training needed for the service

Food and service ware outstanding. The only problem was with reservation thru Open Table. We were given a reservation at 3PM which after checking on line was changed to 4PM. Found out at arrival the restaurant was not open until 5PM for dinner service on New Year's Eve. We were reschuled for 5PM and service was prompt, food delicious and good time was had by all in the group. In the future will call the restaurant directly and skip Open Table.

Everything was very good with one exception... I selected the special, which was Halibut. It Was Very Dry. Otherwise, all was good. We were there on Christmas eve and decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary there 6 days later. Have always enjoyed the Agave.

We were unable to get reservations for Christmas, so had lunch on Wed. The two for $20 meal (pork tenderloin) was excellent and our daughter loved the Reuben. Next year we'll make Christmas reservations in October!

The food was good, the service was wonderful. The noise level was terrible. We couldn't hear each other. The tables are too close. The wait staff had to wind around the tables which was quite a challenge. The hostess sat all parties very close together, but there was a lot of empty seating in other parts of the restaurant. That was the least desireable part of the experience and made the noise seem much louder than it might have been if the customers had been farther apart and the whole soace had been used.

Food and vibes here always pleasant .I had the tortilla soup and it was too robust for me. I ordered a side of sour cream to tone it down. The free birthday cake had liquid real gold in the frosting. Nice greens in salad. We’ll keep company nag back! Nice job peeps! 🤙

A little less "nouvelle cuisine" with overwhelming emphasis on different ingredients, coatings and sauces and a little more "meat and potatoes" menu. The menu on-line is not the menu offered at the restaurant.

Food in general is not to the standards that used to be, maybe they chain the cooks, the bred looks like they opened a package from Walmart, before the meal came with salad and two sides, today you have to pay each separated, to expensive for what you get.

Higher end food and service than the average with reasonable prices. We have had the rib eye and filet meals and found both if them to be exxellent. The presentation of the food is synonymous with higher end dining. Side dishes are prepared with the same care and finish of the entree, resulting in a truly delicious plate.
One would expect that in a casino atmosphere you would be able to locate the restaurant easily. This however is not the case, as we ( and other first timers ) had to ask directions, finding accessed from the courtyard area.
During the online booking process I was asked if an occasion was being celebrated that evening. As it was my wife's 65 birthday I indicated so, resulting in a decorative and delicious surprise for her at the end of the meal.
Great food, Great service....Bravo Agave!

This restaurant is located at the Desert Diamond Casino. It has a lovely setting separate from the casino but a few steps through the outdoor patio takes you into the casino. Menu includes surf and turf, variety of dishes, weekly specials.
Service is VERY good and meals are quite tasty and a good value.
Always fun to visit the casino while there as well.

The prime rib special was just OK. It wasn't a great cut and there was no ability to customized anything, like substituting rice for potatoes. Prices on other items were moderate. Wine glass was 5 oz at best. Purchase a bottle next time.

Edoardo our waiter was wonderful! But it was impossible to get a reservation for 20 people. We tried to do it online even called the restaurant but could not get the reservation until right before we left to go to the restaurant. We would not have chosen a Agavq had we not already planned to go with a group of people.

Had reservations and were seated promptly. Our server was very pleasant, efficient and noted that I asked for the check because it was my husband's birthday. Our prime rib was served as ordered (medium rare), but it could have been a bit more tender. My husband received a superb small birthday cake, which we both enjoyed.
