I ordered the Scallops for dinner, and the flavors were delicious, but the pasta was crunchy. The Creme Brûlée’s was delicious and HUGE, and the wine was delicious. The service was spectacular, but the most important part of the evening was the price of the meal. Service, taste, and value a great combination.

We got a coupon in the mail. We had a free meal and it was exceptional! The filet was so good. We got a bottle of good wine. The service was great!!! The trio desert was awesome. We love Agave’s anyway but this was so nice. We will definitely be back.

We enjoyed the potato, the asparagus was not eatible. We each ordered the same steak. One was a filet medium rare, the other was maybe a half strip very well done. The waitress was not very attentive. Took our order and delivered our bill! The wine was nice and we enjoyed the surroundings. Thanks for asking.

I was very disappointed the fact they didn’t have the wine that was advertised. I asked for a rare steak and got a medium. But the waitress was good and the food was good.

WE HAD DINNER ON FRIDAY NIGHT (11/1/19) AND ENJOYED IT VERY MUCH. THE BOTTLE OF FERRARI
.CARANO CABERNET WAS EXCELLENT. MY CLAM CHOWDER WAS HOT WITH PLENTY OF CLAMS AND MY WIFES SPINACH SALAD WAS FRESH. THE SIX OZ. FILET ENTRE I HAD WAS TENDER BUT A LITTLE FURTHER DONE THAN THE MEDIUM I ORDERED. THE MASHED POTATOES HAD A NEAT WAVY DESIGN AND WERE VERY TASTY. MY WIFE SAID HER CHICKEN MARCELLA WAS PROBABLY THE BEST SHE'S EVER HAD. THE DESERT CAME WITH THE MEAL AND WAS SERVED ON A LONG SKINNY PLATE WITH FOUR MINIATURE SWEETS. IT WAS BEAUTIFULLY DISPLAYED AND DELICIOUS.
THE AMBIANCE OF THE RESTAURANT WOULD BE HARD TO REPRODUCE OUTSIDE OF PHOENIX. IT IS RELAXING AND MODERN. OUR WAITRESS WAS FRIENDLY AND PROFESSIONAL.
WE WILL BE BACK!

I absolutely loved the tostada soup, salmon and dessert. It was most excellent and I will be back. I have already told people to go. I really enjoyed it and would love another coupon. 😁

Although we have eaten at Agave before, this time was exceptional. The servers were very attentive, the food and wine were delightful and we were very pleased overall. The only negative was the chilly temperature from the air conditioning. We moved to another table away from the a/c vents and this solved the problem

The appetizers, shrimp cocktail and Calamari were both excellent. We ordered two different entrees. The duck breast which my spouse had was excellent, prepared and presented nicely. The Steak Diane I ordered came out with the wrong vegetable, and was supposed to be filet medallions. Being somewhat picky about my beef it seemed to me that I was served flat cuts of sirloin both in texture and tenderness. The temperature was about right, but I would not order the same meal again, hence our average rating for the experience. We shared a cheesecake serving, which was average.

Everything was excellent with one exception. The spinach salad. Presentation was okay but it lacked great ingredients , very disappointed. I would not order it again nor would I recommend it. Everyone else enjoyed their meal and they all looks good. We will continue to enjoy the Agave Restaurant. The staff is excellent.

The Agave is everything that the DD buffet is not! The Agave has a nice ambience, interesting, delicious food & good service. The portions are ample & the prices are reasonable. My most recent meal was the prime rib, served w/soup or salad, huge baked potato & sautéed veggies, rolls & butter. Brittany Cooper was our excellent server.

Four of us dined there Sunday evening and we were celebrating a birthday. Two of us ordered steak Diane. One ordered tenderloin steak and the other ordered prime rib.
All of the dinners were cooked perfect, tasted great, and the portions were generous.
The birthday boy got a free desert as well.
Our server was quite the character and we enjoyed her as well.
We didn’t know what to expect as we hadn’t eaten there before but as new residents of Green Valley, we will be coming back.
Highly recommend!

I was very surprised that they were not doing more business. Since there is virtually nothing left in Green Valley for fine dining, this is great! The prices were very reasonable, and the food was excellent.

Went for national lobster day.The lobster bisque was terrible, 0 lobster meat and too salty,does campbells soup make a lobster bisque?On a 1-10 scale the bisque was a weak 2.The lobster it's self was good,the baked potato tasted like a baked potato ,the vegetable was O K.The cake was crazy good.I have been here a hand full of times over the years,and expected better,but I plan on giving them another chance.

Great value
Calamari appetizer was plentiful and had nice spice (heat) with dip.
Jumbo Scallops (5) were indeed jumbo and tasty
Home made fettuccine was fresh.
No room for dessert

We went for the Sonoran Restaurant prix fixe dinner, having never been there before, and were very pleasantly surprised. The food was great and very nicely presented, the service superlative, and the price for it all was very reasonable.

We both opted for the lobster tail dinner, but my husband felt the amount of meat was quite small for the price, mine was okay but a bit chewier than I would have expected. The potato and broccolini veg were fine. The service was a bit slow, especially considering there were few people there on a Sunday evening. We usually love the Agave, so this was a bit disappointing.

Generally the food is very good along with the service and ambience. On this particular occasion all the food, every entree and side dishes we're terrible,except for the soup. We've always enjoyed the food at the restaurant in the past so we'll keep going...

I was very disappointed with the quality
of the food.

I had the New York steak and it was tough and had little flavor.

We brought a guest and we’re embarrassed
By the food.

The service was very good.

4 of use went to agave for the convenience because we had a comedy show next door. Made reservations online which was easy and convenient online for 7pm. We were seated promptly. Since we only had an hour we all knew what we were going to order. 5munnlater the waitress greeted we said we will put in the full order. She took our order nothing was substitute or changed. The steak was requested medium raw. Place was busy but not full. Good came out for 3 ppl and the vegan plate was left behind. The waitress forgot to put in the order. Then the steak was raw. She never came back to ask if another round of drinks were desired. We had 15 min left we got the managers attention. He quickly got the issue fixed and discounted the late vegan dish and the steak. Overall the salmon plate was amazing but the other dishes were average.

Food was priced right. The food was okay meaning it didn’t taste bad but I wasn’t wowed! I ordered a full rack of ribs for 20.00 bucks. I would go back to eat before the show.

The ribs were not tasty at all. Looks like they were boiled or steamed, put on a plate, then smothered in bbq sauce. Won't be coming back here again.
