I ordered my fillet medium well and it tasted scorched. Overall the dinner was OK. But we are used to a great fillet. The asparagus was a bit al dente and no salad. The pre-dinner rolls were excellent. Candace was a pleasure!!

We were celebrating our friend's birthday and the staff made all of us feel very special. The food was awesome except the spinach salad was not special.

Food quality was terrible. We had steak and it was the worst cut of meat I’ve ever had in a restaurant.

Food was very good and we enjoyed the musical entertainment in the background.

Wish they could do something about the front door, when they are opened, the cold air hits the first 4-6 tables. A bit chilly!

They claim to be a first class restaurant and they are not.
Service was average
Soup was off taste in dangerous bowls
All meals were bland
Steak was over cooked
Live music was much too loud
Parking is very far from restaurant entrance

Agave's service was great from out hostess to servers. I love the ambience with the court yard lighting and the flaming heaters at the entry, and the music on Sunday evening was amazing. I would love to see candles on the tables to continue the romantic atmosphere.

This was a gratis meal and not the usual fine dining. Majority were there for a free lunch and as the saying goes you get what you pay for. The service was good and we had an exceptional waitress. I'd tell a friend to go to the Agave when it's just food off the main menu. Also a great inconvenience to have the validation in the casino where you are perceived as an indigent.

Even with a reservation we waited 30 minutes for a table. The food was another 25 min wait. Most of the food was cold when served.

The food overall was very good to excellent; great tortilla soup and tasty fajita fixings with plenty of pieces of meat. However, I had two pieces of beef that had a large piece of bone/tendon and a large piece of gristle. I was going to mention it to our server Haley, but my wife gets pretty grossed out by small pieces gristle in hamburger, and I did not want to say anything to change her mind on the food as she did not have any issues. So in some ways the food would be considered a 5 (outstanding-especially for a promotional free meal) but that one aspect could be a 1.

The server/staff person who seated us was a little abrupt when my wife asked for a different table (very busy location). Although there were some other nearby tables (which may have been designated to other servers?), and my wife also said we would be willing to wait a little longer, the server did not seem too accommodating or friendly. In contrast our server ended up being Haley and she was very friendly, readily answered questions, and frequently asked how the meal was going despite her seeming to be quite busy. Other servers also readily filled water glasses etc. So again the rating could have varied from a 2 to a 5.

We overheard someone saying that the restaurant was 20+ years old? But it seemed to be in very good condition and clean (recently updated?)

This was a free lunch promotion and it was a demotion. The food was good but the service was terrible. Lunch took over 2 hours. We won't be going back anytime soon.

The trouble with Agave and the 'promotions' is how many hoops one must negotiate in order to get to a table. First you have to get online, and find an open day that fits your needs, then when you get to the casino you have to check in and show your id yadda yadda yadda; then when you get to the restaurant, you get to check in again, more id, more questions, and then wait, which usually takes a while to get seated. Is it all worth it? On a coupon I suppose it is, but if I had to go through all of that and also be out of pocket, no, it's just too much trouble.

We really enjoyed our lunch on Thursday, Feb. 20. We had to wait for our reservation time of 1;30, even though there were multiple tables available. Apparently this was a rule the Maitre 'd came up with ??? However, since we are retired and have nothing else to do, it was OK.
We had to wait for a little while after we were seated for no apparent reason but once we got served, the service was GREAT !
The food was excellent, with good portions and served hot.
We were impressed !

Met out of town visitors for dinner and conversation. Food and service was excellent. The live music was good HOWEVER it was much too loud and made conversation difficult.
