    I've been here about 15-20 times over the last few years. But the last two times have been terrible, and it continues to deteriorate. They enforce a strict 90-minute policy. We were a party of 4. And they brought us the first round of drinks 38 mins after we sat down and ordered. Using covid-convenience as an excuse and enforcing a 90-min policy is one thing, but they shouldn't be doing that when service is so terribly late. I've seen the gratuity of 20% automatically added to parties of 6+ people. But our 4 ppl table also automatically included gratuity. And this was not obvious at first glance in the check. The check listed out a space for adding our gratuity and also provided options showing how much a 18/20/25% gratuity would be. All of us in the table filled in this gratuity before we saw the fine tiny print showing that they already included 20%. FOR SUCH TERRIBLE LATE SERVICE!!

    Had a pretty miserable experience here. We went for brunch. The service was terrible. Our server really only came by twice. We all wanted another round of drinks but were never able to get her attention. When we asked for the check, we were informed that they don't split checks and they can only take up to 4 cards. Like what?? What year is it?? Then after she informed us of this, it took a further 30 minutes to actually get our check delivered. Half of our group just left to go to a nearby bar. On top of that, the food was only ok. I will definitely not be coming here again anytime soon.

    I was a frequent customer of Agave for awhile but because of the pandemic I was unable to get into the city as often to enjoy. I decided to book this restaurant the day of my birthday for brunch. I got there and they could not find my name on the list of reservations and rudely asked if I made the reservation at the location I was at to which I confirmed through open tables website that it was the correct location I was currently at. I had also confirmed this reservation via text a few days prior from open table. I guess if your making a reservation here, call. They were able to accommodate my large party but put us in the corner of the dining room and was extremely loud my guests and I could barely talk to one another without screaming. Waiter made a rude comment to us and was not very friendly at all. Honestly would not come back here, seems very disorganized. Only good thing was the company I had and the bottomless drinks.

    Agave has changed a bit post pandemic, the drinks aren’t as good or as strong. The restaurant itself doesn’t look as polished as it used to. I loved it here so I hope it can bounce back. The food and service are still pretty good for the most part.

    Wasn’t greeted upon arrival for my first time there and when I was greeted I was greeted poorly and made to sit in front of the restaurant during inclement weather because I was a walk in although there was plenty of seating inside the restaurant available. Overall didn’t fée welcome the food was good and the waiter was ok. Thanks!

    We ate outside because of the recent change in COVID risk status. It was a breezy 55 degrees outside. There were heaters, but the outside shack was so "ventilated" that it was still pretty chilly. That said, the food was good and the service was OK - though needed some reminders periodically that we were out there. I would definitely recommend it if it was just a little warmer out (or less windy). Still we had a good time.

    Was there for a birthday brunch and the first drink took over 30 mins after sitting down. $35 for bottomless but it’s almost entirely orange juice. Like honestly at that cost you need to provide a light orange mimosa. You are already making enough profit since a bottle is like $10. Nobody is going to drink 15 mimosas and make you lose profit if you actually fill them 90% champagne. Food was cold and the potatoes had no flavor. Steak was about 3 oz in size. No music outside at all. Inside is hot as heck like they had the front door open trying to save electricity with no air running.

    Not even a tourist trap, just a dump. Over-priced, tiny drinks in water glasses, not many food options but it's TERRIBLE, hilariously awful food anyway. These guys aren't even trying. Steer clear.

    Great service and good food and drinks. I loved the atmosphere and the freshness of the food. Our server, a young woman, was lovely and very attentive. My only "complaint" was how loud it was, but that was because it was very busy (brunch). But it's good to see people back out and returning to great restaurants such as Agave. Thank you for a lovely brunch experience.

    Incredibly loud. Lots of young people overconsuming alcohol. Sat at the bar while I waited for my friend. During that time the bartender did not once acknowledge me or ask if I needed anything. Had to ask multiple members of staff for water at the table. Food was fast and was good. Place is great if you’re a 20-something looking to get day drunk for $35, but I’m a family man and therefore not likely to return.

    Loved everything. Went for my sisters birthday and they took care of everything, brought out the cake at the perfect moment with candles. Food was amazing, was just sad that there was no lobster so I couldn’t have the lobster benedict as that was what made me choose this restaurant. That was the only down side but I did love what I had, the eggs benedict and the strawberry pancakes. Amazing. I’ll definitely be back.

    The food was good, but there was only one server for our large dining area, and they were way too swamped. Service lagged, and one of my party got the wrong meal. The music was also too loud, it was difficult to hold a conversation.

    Came here for brunch. I had the southwestern eggs benedict- it was OK, could have used more salt and the potatoes weren't hot. There was a little confusion over the bottomless brunch drink special- it's $35 a person for either wine, plain mimosa, or plain margaritas. You're charged an extra $5 for flavored options so the price is actually $40 a person. Not sure why they made this policy needlessly confusing. I'm not sure how dinner is here but brunch was crowded and therefore the service was slow. I wouldn't come back for brunch but I'd try lunch or dinner

    Kept having to flag down a waiter to bring us forks/knives/ drinks/ napkins. Long wait time. The fact that it was bottomless brunch, we had to hunt down the waiter to bring us drinks. Once our waiter served us food he was no where to be found and not one server approached our table for 2 hours. The food was also below average. Will Not return.
