    Went for an 8:15 dinner. Food and drinks were good. The kitchen closes at 9 despite a 10:00 close listed on Google, but that’s ok since we made sure to order before 9. But well before 10 it was clear we were wanted out even though we were still finishing our food. Brunch definitely seems like their primary operation.

    I have been coming to agave for 7 years now and boy has it gone down the toilet. They changed the pricing structure to be more expensive but then lessened the value of the food, drinks and experience. The brunch is now twice as expensive as it was and they do not even make the drinks individually now. The margs are batch made to taste like sour lemonade and the ice melts in them so then you have to drink them warm. The service is now poor and they provide you the bare minimum. I am scared for agaves future after this experience! Bring back the experience that used to be!

    Been to agave before many times. This time around I think I didnt order well. Got the steak quesadilla and it was not the best. Tasted try with little flavor. The margaritas were full of sugary mixers. While I get the labor shortage in the market, our service was slow and staff werent around often enough to even clear plates. Our server was very nice and accommodating but just seemed we didnt have enough attention. Just dont see the value for money there anymore.

    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.

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!
