This was my second time visiting and with both of my visits my experience was an outstanding experience. Went for Sunday brunch got the $35 bottomless prefix menu. The food was delicious ((just wished there were more eggs)) and the waiter was on point with our mimosas. I will definitely continue to return.

First, they tried to seat us in the worst possible table in the front sandwiched next to the door, which was very inconsiderate because there were other tables open and it was very cold out. Then we felt rushed by the server the entire meal. Very loud and hard to hear the person across the table. Food was alright, but overpriced. Would not recommend and will not be returning.

It was freezing outside and we were seated in the cold glass front room, although there were lots of nice free tables in the back. The music was way too loud where we were right up next to the bar but the hostess said she didn’t seat us in the back because it was too loud. Sigh. The food was ok though the duck tacos were not hot. Service was fine. Won’t go back. It looked more like a millennial pick up joint than anything.

Had an amazing time last year and thought we would recreate that night. Nope...didn’t happen. Service was so incredibly slow, and the place was empty. So, there was really no excuse. Thankfully, food was good. Guess, you can’t recreate a memorable evening.

We wanted to have a boozy-brunch and that’s exactly what we got.
The weather was gorgeous so we sat outside, it was great watching the hussle and bustle pass you by. I love a frozen margarita, and as it was bottomless for for next 2 hours, I took advantage. For an extra dollar you can add a flavour, I had the blood orange and loved it. My other half had white wine and it was of a good quality. The food was tasty the drinks were regularly topped up.

I’d happily go back tomorrow and have recommended it to my friends!

My friends and I really enjoyed our Brunch experience. The Pre-fixe menu with a two-hour block of bottomless drinks (your choice of margaritas, mimosas, or bloody marys) was a great value. The service was great, our waiter was pleasant and very attentive -- we never had an empty glass. I would definitely come back for Brunch for other occasions.

We went to Agave for a birthday. There were 8 of us and they sat us at a wonderful round table that made it perfect for talking as a group. Greatly lighting, food, and margaritas. Lots of laughs and the waiter was wonderful at showing up when we needed him but not being overly attentive. Highly recommend.

Good brunch spot. Our waitress messed up our omelet order and wasn't super attentive. The staff seemed frustrated with one another and the place was not even crowded. I got the vibe something was going on "behind the scenes." However, it did not ruin my experience but definitely something to be aware of in the future. Overall, I look forward to coming back.

The food here is always great, although I'm not too adventurous! Enjoyed the chicken enchilada while my friend raved about the seafood enchiladas. We shared the quinoa app, which was wonderful. Only "gripe", they were out of decaf coffee and didn't serve tea at all! Will definitely return.

I had a great time at agave. They have an awesome cocktail hour with delicious margaritas made with agave...duh. I did feel a little rushed by my waiter, and the food came out super fast. So, if you're wanting a long romantic dinner, I wouldn't recommend cause they do things with efficiency there. However, the food is so delicious. Honestly, the guacamole is worth sharing regardless of its outrageous price. The chicken tacos are so hearty and filled with flavor.

Met a friend who had been there the night before and liked it so much she wanted to go back. We had an early reservation, 6:00. She was already sitting at a table by one of the inside-but-open-to-the-street windows. The noise level from outside was very high at times (rush hour traffic and trucks mostly). There was a cleanser smell (Fantastik?) that bothered me (but was unnoticed by my husband...men!) that dissipated over time.
The happy hour pricing on margaritas was very good, and while the variations were delicious the alcohol content seemed quite low...I'd rather pay the normal drink price and cut down on the sugar of drinking two for comparable content.
The menu choices are limited but are nice. Presentation was excellent. Wait staff superb.
You definitely do not want to go there without checking out the menu first if you want extensive taco/burrito/enchilada choices.
