    Excellent Food with Good Service. The only thing that was lacking was wait time for food and refilling of drinks. Otherwise and excellent experience!

    My friends and I generally enjoyed our brunch at Agave. The vibe was upbeat and our server was very friendly. My only two complaints were that the back of house staff when attempting to be quick seemed annoyed by the pace of the guests they were working around. I observed a busser running over a patron and staff frustrated that people were taking their time getting to their seats. Lastly, we were brought the check with no offer of a last drink or heads up. Amazing variety of brunch drinks and food was decent.

    We had a 1:30 reservation, got there on time with everyone, then had to wait till 2:20 to be seated. They say 2 hour bottomless brunch on their website but then 90min on their menu and other tables were upset and refusing to leave. They claimed it wasn’t their website but the QR table on the code… went to their site. Overall, it was pretty disappointing. The food was meh and the place was too loud to speak to anyone.

    Our brunch at Agave was a hit, thanks to the endless mimosas and margaritas that paired perfectly with our selections. The calamari was crisp and tender, while the Pollo Tinga Empanaditas offered a delightful mix of spicy and savory in a flaky pastry. The Mojo Burritos were the star, packed with flavor and satisfyingly hearty. With attentive service keeping our spirits refreshed, Agave delivered a memorable brunch experience in a vibrant setting.

    Very noisy and chaotic. Also, overpriced. We ordered a pitcher of margaritas for $70. When we got the bill, we were charged $100. and were told we ordered the more expensive tequila. This was not true since we were not asked which tequila we wanted or told that the better tequila would set us back another $30.00! I know as much about tequila as I know about nuclear physics. Very sneaky, underhanded tactics. There's also no mention that the tip is already added to the bill, so look carefully at the tab! The food is good but nothing special. There are many Mexican restaurants in the city - will try another one next time.

    Unfortunately we had to wait an HOUR past our reservation time for a table of 6. We were told it would be "no more than 15 minutes" when we checked initially. At about 40 minutes past I voiced how irritated this situation was making me and the hostess told me the fact that we hadn't gotten a table wasn't her problem. The brunch is not good enough to ever deal with that again and had I known it would be an hour wait time I would have gone someone else.

    Reservation was at 1:30. Our full party didn't arrive until 1:45, but after waiting a full hour to be sitted despite having a reservation they provided us with a table in the middle of the crowded waiting space with hardly any room and not even enough chairs. Hostess kept assuring us our table would be coming shortly then would give an open table to some one else. Very unorganized and very chaotic. Don't recommend unless you're going by yourself.

    This place used to be a vibe back in 2016, but I’m pretty sure its best days are behind it. The food now is overcooked to the point of being stale. The drinks aren’t worth the premium as they’re watered down and very sugary. Wouldn’t come back or recommend.

    The restaurant ran out of seemingly 3/4 of the menu items and did not let us know until we started to place our orders...well past the time we had been seated and settled in. Would have been nice to know ahead of time so that we didn't have to scramble and pick new items when the waiter was standing over us. Disappointing with the quality of the limited options as well.

    The food was meh. One dish on the brunch menu was huevos ranchero (which I ordered). The dish I was served had all the right ingredients, but put together in a way that made me wonder why this dish would ever be popular. It was just a bunch of glop. the service was worse: at one point, I needed someone to come to the table for something or other. Service was slow, so I got up and went to the waiters' station near the kitchen. I made direct eye contact with someone there, and that person could clearly see I was in need of assistance. He turned away indifferently. he didn't give the weakest appearance of caring.

    I've eaten here many times before. Since Covid, the menu seems to have shrunken considerably. On this last visit, the waiter started out telling us that they hadn't gotten an expected delivery and several items were not available. He then rattled off at least 6-8 items. Ridiculous. We will move on from visiting this restaurant in the future.

    Cute restaurant but the service was so slow and there were maybe 4 other tables of patrons in the restaurant at the time we dined. Also on the reservation I said it was a special occasion, and they didn’t do anything for it. Why put that as an option if they would ignore the note?

    Bottomless brunch here was great. Servers were attentive and kept the refills coming. Food was tasty and of good portion. We had an earlier reservation so it wasn’t that busy when we arrived but by 1PM it was pretty crowded. My only disappointment was that in my reservation I indicated it was my birthday but it wasn’t acknowledged during my visit.

    Came here for the bottomless brunch with my girlfriend. We were very excited to try it and spend the full time (90mins) enjoying the experience. We ordered drinks and guacamole to start. A couple minutes later we were asked if we were ready to order. We said not yet. Three minutes later were asked again, and said we need some time. (It’s maybe 20 mins in at this point and we wanted to drink/eat our app first and order closer to half our time there). The waiter comes back and I politely tell him that since it was a 90 min experience, that we would like to enjoy our drinks and order a bit later. I asked to let him know when I was ready. He responded with, “so what can I get you?” I was dumbfounded and said, ….please not yet. He came back maybe 5 mins later (after sending a colleague in the mean time to ask) and I felt so forced at that point, and since it was almost to the halfway point, at that point I just ordered. Our experience was nearly ruined at this point and I have not been that frustrated or unheard at a restaurant ever. I’m also a server, in NYC, and have been for years; I’m always overly kind to servers and tip generously. My tip didn’t reflect how I felt the service was, and the ambience otherwise was wonderful. We loved our drinks and the food was good. Nothing incredible but if I didn’t have that experience with the ordering, it would’ve been an easy 4 stars. (Table availability was also not an issue. We were one of maybe 5 tables inside with 15+ open when we left, within the 90 minute time frame)

    Did bottomless brunch with one other person. Waiter came over 15 mins after we were seated, took our drink order and provided our drinks roughly 10 mins after that. We didn’t see the server until probably 30 mins later. Half of our brunch time was wasted on waiting..to a point where other people seated outside were wondering where the server went, and a few tables got up to go flag the waiter down. We used to love coming here but this experience ruined the day:(

    We loved dining at Agave! The reservation was for the full 1.5 hours, and we had excellent, non rushed service even though it was a busy Saturday. The food has an authentic Mexican taste with modern flair. Nachos were delicious. Bottomless margaritas for brunch are a must. Our favorite margarita flavors were mango, passionfruit, and guava. They had unique varieties of enchiladas. The ambiance was very chill yet upbeat. We got to sit in a partially enclosed area that had an outdoor breeze yet some cold air coming down, which was great for the humid summer day. We’ll definitely be back!
