The food was amazing I got the quesadillas (which I don’t normally get) because I saw another table get it and it did not disappoint. The bottomless margaritas were delish and my friends and I had a great time

Was at the restaurant for 2.5 hours and our food never came despite us asking for an update on it numerous times. Eventually gave up and left without eating. Ambiance and drinks were good but not worth it for the service.

Their menu has gone through a drastic change post COVID. No more steak and eggs, no more desert and things seem pricier than before. We paid $30 extra for bottomless drinks but had to keep looking for the waiter for refills every half hour or so because he rarely came to our table. It used to be my favorite spot, but I won't be going back. Hopefully others have a better experience than I did.

We sat outside (no heaters), and it took at least 20 minutes to get a drink order in. Margaritas were watered down. Then it took a very long time to order our dinner. We had to keep chasing down our server - it wasn't his fault; they were clearly understaffed outside. Food was mediocre at best. And then it took forever and a day to get the check while we were freezing cold outside. Not sure why they don't have heaters. I know this is an excruciating time for restaurants, but this one needs to up its game a bit.

Food was amazing and it was cute and socially distanced but our waitress was awful. She never bothered to check if we needed anything and rolled her eyes when he asked her for another drink.

I am Agave’s number one fan but my experience this past weekend wasn’t the best. They had a limited menu so the food quality was not up to normal standards and then the service was very poor! I also booked us indoor dining a month before the reso and we ended up sitting in the covered patio with rain dripping on us from the ceiling! I will be back with hope that the menu will return to normal soon and only if I can sit inside!

I was very surprised this place has been recommended to me by so many people but my friends and I were not impressed with the food for the price or ambience it might’ve been also that we sat outside and it took away from the experience, also our sangrias didn’t have fruit in them but it said included fruit on the menu, we probably won’t recommend people to the location in the west village maybe another location is better

This is not real Mexican food. Our tacos were interesting and not good. The cocktails were poor quality. The environment was a lot of drunk tables.

Waited 35 mins past reservation time to then be seated outdoors when indoors was requested. Had that been the case we should have been seated way before other parties. No server came to us for 20 mins. Poor service, usually love agave but not yesterday.

Food was amazing, temperature checks at the door, outside heated seating, service was great. the only thing I would say is that the table dividers on the inside of the restaurant do not cover the side of the table near the wall because the seating is like a long bench. if they could fix that, that would be great. I've been before and would come back a third time! thanks!

It was a good meal with very good drinks- but way overpriced for the bottomless brunch which was an additional $35 over the cost of the food so it was almost $150 for two. Can get better food and spend less elsewhere. There was also a very loud drunk group of teens next to us and we could barely hear our own conversation. The staff did nothing to control the situation and it was obvious that others nearby were annoyed as well with the situation.

Made a reservation a week ahead of time and they sat us in their tent during ‘outdoor dining only’, was truly an amazing spot in the corner for us to be ourselves. Service was fair when it came to bottomless service. One of our entree’s had a hair and the other had a twist tie in it, otherwise the food was quality. The server was very nice and comped the dish for us without asking. I would go back to Agave for brunch again, but not the first choice.

Food and drinks were awesome. Service wasn’t great. They didn’t have a table set up for the reservation we had made and only brought water over once or twice the whole evening.

Otherwise it was great and the staff were friendly.

The food was good. We had reservations for 3:15 pm. The restaurant was severely understaffed and our waitress was running around (not her fault!) juggling multiple tables. We asked for an indoor table due to it being freezing outside and we were very patient but, because of some miscommunication, we got passed up twice and only made our way inside around 5 pm!!!! Our waitress, Riley, was extremely kind and apologetic but we assured her we knew this was not her fault. 10/10 for food and the waitress. However, the owners should really handle this better. Maybe at least implement outdoor heaters for outdoor seating...

Excellent outdoor dining structure to keep you warm and maintain an indoor feel. The food is good and if you’re looking for mexican food look no further. The service was the only complaint. We ordered tequilla shots and they gave us water. Overall good place just an unfortunate experience with the service
