Best prime rib I have had in years!!! My friend I had invited to go with me had been there a few weeks prior and had prime rib and she said she hated it just so bad!! BOTH she and her husband was so disappointed.. I had convinced her that 2-1 was suppose to be excellent and we were both happy that it was so great!! Thank you!!

The specials, particularly Sunday prime rib are a great deal. Nice atmosphere, good service and excellent value. One of our group is a vegetarian and the servers always work with her to get exactly what she wants.

We recently had a very nice dinner at Agave. It was a quiet night so the sound level was better than usual. All our meals were served hot and plated beautifully . The service was very good as well.

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.

The five of us all enjoyed our meal. The fish and chips was the best I ever had....

Easy to converse across a large table. Excellent service and the thoughtful birthday cup cake.

All in all and excellent choice.

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.

The restaurant was less than 25% full and still service was very slow. I ordered the beef bourguignon - the meat was good but all of the veggies were way too salty - inedible - even though I like salt. My meal was comp'ed but then I left hungry. My dining companions enjoyed their meals.

My husband and I enjoy dining at the Agave. We go there often. Food is great and well priced. I also am responsible for arranging luncheon outings for three ladies groups during season, and I always plan on the Agave as being one of our dining delights. The waitresses and hostess are very friendly and good at their jobs. I would highly recommend the Agave to all.
