    Would not recommend you visit Agave on your trip to Santa Fe. Happy hour margaritas were delicious and great price, but food was not good. Barely anyone there should have been a sign to try somewhere else. Service was good and environment was comfortable.

    Anniversary dinner at Agave was disappointing. Service was terrible. Only one waitress serving the entire restaurant. Not her fault. She was really hustling, but only so much one person could do. Food was okay but nothing special for the price. I’ve had similar experiences in other hotel restaurants. We’ll have the rest of our meals out in town.

    Unfortunately the service was very slow. Took a long time to get drinks. The food also took forever. The waitress was not friendly and rarely checked on us. We ordered a side of creamed spinach, it was just cooked spinach in some olive oil.

    We had the salmon and it was outstanding! Very quiet as it was a weeknight, and that's what we wanted. A bit pricey ($42 for the salmon), but all prices are high these days. We will certainly be there again!

    Beautiful setting in the posh Eldorado Hotel! We are from out of town, so we do not know the good local places to go to. Wait staff not friendly and not rude. Food was beautiful but lacked flavor. We came home and ordered takeout afterwards because 3 out of 4 people in our group did not like their meal. The prices are very high, ($200 food plus $40 tip) so we were expecting delicious food and excellent service. The next night we ate at D. H. Lescombes Winery and Bistro for half the amount, the service was incredibly warm, and the food was excellent!

    We had the Christmas Eve buffet. The meal was just okay, and was terribly overpriced for what we received. I'd recommend the hotel, but not the buffet. However, the lobby bar - Cava - was fantastic!

    Made a reservation for christmas eve dinner. It did not clearly state that the meal was a buffet. When we arrived it was a buffet of enchiladas and tamales. The enchiladas were okay. The tamales were dry and lacking flavor. The sopapillas were terrible and the tortillas were hard. All of this for 75 dollars a plate and included 23% gratuity for a buffet. Overall, a terrible exeperience. Will not be returning.

    I had made a reservation for 11:30 but the restaurant door was locked and no one answered the phone. I happened to go into the adjacent (I realized later) hotel restroom and the woman said I was in Agave, but they closed at 12. We sat down and were served but no one could explain what happened with the reservation request. Odd!

    Limited food choices that are overpriced. An additional charge of $4 to mix tacos is unnecessary. The carnitas(pulled pork) lacked flavor. The pork was bland. The children's menu seems to offer food selections that would be more appreciated by adults. Drink menu has a number of cocktails to enjoy. The cucumber Collins was delicious. Smokey and fire margarita was refreshing. The fire portion of the name is misleading. The mezcal offers the smoke. Service leaves one wanting. Was greeted and told to sit anywhere by waiter. That same waiter took over 5 mintues to take drink order. Would recommend sitting at the bar and visiting for drinks. Don't waste time getting dinner.

    I chose Agave based on the on-line menu, which was impressive. However, when we were seated, the menu was extremely limited, and the food was basically bar food -- tacos, burgers. We were very disappointed and will not ever recommend or return to Agave. Your restaurant has not decided what kind of image it wants for itself. Do you want to be a high-end restaurant or a neighborhood bar? An elegant gourmet event or a watering hole? Right now you are trying to be both, but you are neither.

    No real menu.. there’s a choice of a burger a salad or tacos.. disappointing! And even if there was very limited choices, they were bad. The kids menu was better. Drinks were good though. Honestly, this restaurant is a pass for me.

    What a disappointment. Hope they are just recovering from the pandemic but this was just not good. Should have been worried when we saw 3 different menus online and when we got there the actual menu was none of those. Just a generic restaurant in a hotel menu.

    The service was great, but I found the food extremely bland and thought the drinks were overpriced as compared to other like venues. The menu was limited due to its recent opening, but that wasn’t an issue for us. We may plan to visit in several months to give it a second try.

    Food was ok. Not bad, not great. 3 Taco plate was yummy. Posole had nice flavor but was not hot enough. Ordered chckn it came without the chkn. Food took forever to arrive. Had to go ask on whats going on. Mojito and margarita were tasty. Server had no personality. Neither did the busser. Creme brulee was very good. Coffee was weak and gross. Watered down crap. Maybe from this morning. Ate here 20 yrs ago and loved it. Now... would not return nor recommend. Rooftop view... not so great. Walls is what u see. Other better places in town.

    We searched Santa Fe for food that had a fresh take. Agave met our hopes! We enjoyed fresh ceviche with sweet potato chips, a terrific salad with pears, goat cheese, cranberry, and a zesty vinaigrette. For breakfast the burrito was expertly and thoughtfully assembled so the flavors melded beautiful. The blue corn pancakes were delightfully different take on a comfort food. Really very fresh, and approachable food, with lots of flavor. Staff was great, especially Cort. My husband was looking for a "citrusy" drink and Cort make up one that was amazing. He is talented, and the place is really delicious.

    We went to dinner for restaurant week. The appetizers and desserts were good, the entrees were ok, but the meat was very grainy and the stacked squash was weird, but ok. The room was beautiful, but the lighting was too bright and detracted from the dinner ambiance. The service was timely but stiff and failed enhance the dining experience. Customer service training might help here.

    Very disappointing. Restaurant was nearly deserted, but service was slow, there was a shortage of silverware - they ran out of soup spoons, the wine we ordered was out of stock, but then they found a bottle. One spoon arrived dirty and couldn't be used. The squash soup appetizer was not heated enough. Our main courses were so so. Deserts were just okay. They neglected to report our check in to Open Table so we initially didn't get OT credit for the reservation (subsequently fixed). We won't go back.
