    Agave on a Friday night is not the place to go for an intimate dinner for two. That being said, the energy and music make it great for parties of 3 or more. I have been going for years and it never disappoints. The food and the drinks are awesome and the staff generally adds to the experience.

    Not planning to go back to Agave anytime soon. Food was mediocre, the salmon was good but nothing else really stood out, and the chips that we got for chips and guac were stale. The restaurant was not busy and the service still sucked. They forgot appetizers we ordered and brought them out after our entrees which made no sense. Tried to make up for it with tequila shots but just was not a great experience overall.

    Took ~45 mins to get a drink once the food arrive. Some very boisterous Murray Hill bros at a table nearby. Food was meh (also not the right order). Drinks also underwhelming.

    I love this place it is a go to every single time for anything from friends in town to a birthday to just catching up. Service is amazing and the food is excellent, especially considering the price — Sat and had the greatest afternoon on the additional outdoor patio and was able to move inside when it got chilly!

    Surprisingly bad margaritas but good food. Odd ambiance, either dead quiet and empty or very loud music once some tables fill up that requires everyone to shout.

    Our server didn't come over to the table for about 20 minutes. They forgot about our chips and guac. We didn't get utensils so I had to get up and go to the bar and ask since our server never came back. The food was good but the service was terrible.

    For some reason, our dinner outside of the restaurant on the street was not as good as it should have been. We have been going to Agave for years and this time the kitchen and bar disappointed. Drinks were not nearly as good as usual and our dinner was arrived at our table slightly above room temperature. Also, the guacamole was not nearly as good as it normally is. Hopefully, this was just one bad night for Agave, and things will get better.

    It was my birthday and I raved about this place to my friends. The service this day was nonexistent. We ordered the bottomless drinks which were never refilled. We also never got more water. One of our meals came late and we never got anything we asked for (ie. sauces, drinks, and water refills). Then at the end of the meal, the waiter argued about the quality of the service. Afterwards, we all had stomach aches and felt poorly the rest of the night. This place was a yearly tradition for my friends and I when they come in town. But we will not be going back.

    My date and I were sitting in the enclosed patio space (not outside by the street) and saw a mouse. The staff was accommodating and allowed us to move to another area, but our appetites were a bit ruined so we stuck with just chips and guac. Nice staff but I wouldn’t go again.

    Initially, we were sat in an “overflow” room for Cinco de Mayo, that unlike the high end and sophisticated design of the actual restaurant (which I’ve been to enough times), had walls painted neon orange, fluorescent lighting, concrete floors and plastic tables with plastic cups and plastic silverware / cutlery. It took 10 minutes to get our drinks, but the noise level in this overflow room was so terrible, we asked to be moved to a table outside in the cold rain. Once seated outside, we ordered our entrees, and an hour later, the food hadn’t arrived because the kitchen was “backed up”. We ended up sitting for over 2 hours with no food, just two rounds of drinks and an overall horrific experience. When our food finally came, we took it to go and ate at our separate homes at 11 pm. NEVER AGAIN.

    This was my second visit to Agave. The food and drinks were made well. I was disappointed to discover that the happy hour specials were suspended due to Cinco de Mayo, for that was my initial motivation for going.

    This restaurant was awesome in the day, but now it's a drinking/taco factory. I guess everyone's gotta make money. We went for dinner and it took ages to find out that they were only serving the brunch menu. This is at 6:45PM on a Saturday. We did not want tacos but that's what we were left with because everything else was brunchy. I hope they go back to what Agave was like years ago.
