My wife and I visited for Valentine’s day dinner. Our waitress Cheyenne was attentive, friendly and helpful. The butternut squash soup, scallops appetizer and filet & shrimp scampi were incredibly delicious. To top it off the triple chocolate mousse was heavenly. Well done and we will return.....highly recommend!
Limited menu, very weak wine list, pricey for value
I had a great time at Agave. Food was excellent and service was superb. Was seated you the fireplace which was a bonus to the experience.
Breakfast menu is fantastic and a great representation of New Mexican food. However, be ware as their lunch menu is dull in comparison to their brunch options if you are looking for the New Mexican fare. Breakfast stops being served at 11am.
The food and service were great. We did have a problem with front of house. Two people joined us unexpectedly at our 5 p.m. reservation. Although the restaurant was deserted at that hour -- only three or four tables -- the staff would not seat us immediately at a four top table, and wanted us in a booth, which does not fit me. When we pointed to a table next to the booth, we were told we could not have that. That table remained empty the entire time we were at dinner. So I was squeezed uncomfortably into a booth.
Ridiculously expensive for two enchilada plates and three premium margaritas. $100 with tip!! WOW!
Table was reserved. Plenty of open tables. Service was excellent, attentive correction of drink order was
Immediately resolved. The food was delicious and plentiful. Great place for everyday dining. A bit pricey.
Restaurant uncomfortably hot. Bartender made us feel unwelcome, so much so we went to another restaurant.
Very disappointed that the "fine dining " menu was the same as the bar menu. When I mentioned it to our waiter, he made a nasty remark and walked away. I told him that his remark was uncalled for and left the lounge.
welcoming staff all recognizing the special occasion, however we reviewed the menu on line and chose the restaurant because of 2 entrees we were looking forward to. Much to our chagrin a different menu was presented to us when seated. We decided to stay though disappointed. Our choices with the offered menu were very limited with only 1 or 2 choices other than the usual bar food. The quality of our choices were nicely presented and the quality was there, wine list outstanding but on the pricey side. Major downfall was not having the appropriate menu on line
We went just for drinks and a bite. Margaritas were very good as was the flight of guacamole. Ni
Great place to visit with friends and family. Staff was attentive and courteous. I highly recommend.
The service was good but the food was not very good at all.
We went to Agave because we heard that the margaritas were good and they were. We were pleasantly surprised that the food was also great! Awesome ceviche, great sliders, tasty fries!
Great food and excellent service! Quiet setting. Very attentive server-Ryan
In the past, when we ate at "The Old House," (what it was called before being named Agave) there was a full dinner menu. In it's new format it is pretty much bar food served in a nice dining room. The choices were mainly appetizers and sandwich items. What we ordered was tasty, but definitely not what we expected for a special anniversary dinner. We'll scratch Agave off our list of "Special Occasion" restaurants.
As a local, I have often met friends for dinner at the El Dorado Hotel before an event at the Lensic because of its close proximity. The expansion of the Agave bar into the space previously occupied by the Old House Restaurant is attractive and we enjoyed a quiet booth. However, the menu is lacking. The service is slow and the food is uninspired. It is a shame the hotel can't hire a good chef, an adequate kitchen and bar staff, develop an interesting menu and serve delicious food! Also, it would be appreciated if the hotel would honor a Lensic ticket stub and provide free parking. Then we would be more likely to enjoy a pre performance dinner and after performance drink with friends......like we did before the hotel changed hands.
Lovely decor but limited menu and mediocre food. Santa Fe has much better options for the money
Menu has changed from what they have posted online... not in a positive way. Service was very good, best part of the evening. I ordered the Filet and while the spices were interesting the portion size and quality of the meat were pitiful especially for the price. Another person ordered the Pappardelle which was marginally acceptable. However they had run out of the meat that was selected. I opted for the 'rum brownie' for dessert which was probably the best of the food selections for the evening. I won't describe it but the presentation was borderline pornographic and had us all laughing... but probably was not their intent. I don't know how this place survives in a city like Santa Fe which abounds in very high quality restaurants.
We have been here many times. This time was a real disappointment. 45 minutes from seating to being served first round. Second round took awhile, too. Some in the party received the second round before the rest because another server took the drinks. The waitress was overwhelmed. We felt sorry for her. I expect better at this bar based on past experiences.
We had a drink at the bar, and dined at Agave on Friday evening, March 2, 2018. The wait staff was very friendly, however they were very, very understaffed - especially behind the bar. During dinner, we waited 20 minutes for a glass of wine. Unacceptable. They are too many other restaurants in Santa Fe with better service to go back to Agave. And, we're locals...
Subpar food but attentive server who accommodated our dietary restrictions and still got us to our theatre performance on time. Thanks!
Old House Restaurant recently closed and Agave, which was in the next room, expanded its space. We didn't know this when we made the reservation but kept the reservation since we had tickets to a function that was across the street. There was no hostess and no one to seat us until a busboy found someone. Agave is . . . a lounge? . . . a small plate restaurant? I don't think they quite know how to utilize the larger space yet. Service was poor. We had to ask different servers to find our server. The wine came after the food, 2 shares that we asked come separately but didn't. The shrimp tamale was all tamale. The salad with grilled salmon was ok, could nave been grilled more. Both came on plates of an awkward size, making sharing a mess.
Breakfast came as part of the package. The waiter was sloppy with pouring water, getting it on the table, menus. When the check came (since it was already paid for) he wrote a note "suggesting"an 18 % gratuity. Food was good, tho.
We would stay at the hotel again -it was lovely - but not eat there.
My husband and I come here for early dinner often. I took my friend for lunch this time.
I like that the valet parking is available.
It’s spacious and service was great. The salad dish that I was looking for was no longer in the menu, but the server talked to the chief and they accommodated to my request.
I appreciated their efforts.
Total train wreck. Our family has been going to the old house for 20 years as it has been one of the best restaurants in town for years. Sadly, they only tell you that the old house is no more once you arrive and what you are faced with is a hotel restaurant. Service was terrible and disorganized. Just as another reviewer mentioned appetizers arrived at the same time as 3 if our 5 entrees ( two others took 23 minutes to get there). So embarrassed as we took out of town guests to a former great place. Clearly they have moved away from real food and just want to serve the hotel guests. The restaurant is poorly managed (after long waits and incorrect orders, we never saw the manager). Good place to go if there is literally no other place open.
Terrible service and undercooked food. I would never go back.
Service was abysmal. First course arrived before drinks. They did not have the sparking wine or bottled wine we ordered from their list. First course came before drinks. We sent it back. Then first and main courses came at the same time. We sent the main back. No accommodation from management for an expensive and aggravating Christmas celebration which still cost an arm and a leg.
xmas eve entrees...both seafood and prime rib were delicious. However for 85.00 each... the prime rib was truly the better value. Seafood entree served only 2 shrimp and 2 scallops
We have been many times to this restaurant and always had a good experience with food and service. This time the food was bad and service poor. Unless management get it’s act together I don’t recommend this place to anyone!
Fantastic all around. 👌🏻
Great food, table service good too, hostess could of been better, a little dismissive on checking in
While my steak was good, my husband's sea bass was flavorless. The service was poor even though it was not busy. There were many empty tables.
Meal was good but has been better in the past. Service was average. Have been here many times but will probably try somewhere else next visit to Santa Fe.
Very disappointed in this Thanksgiving dinner. Salad was overdressed and soggy; Lobster Bisque had less than a teaspoon of lobster. Turkey was almost non-existent and was a mess. Server spilled a pitcher of ice all over me, the floor and the table. We had to ask for things at least three times. Very disappointed!
Our service, cuisine, wine and ambience was very appreciated.
The coffee was horrible - skip the coffee.
Shrimp cocktail, crab cake, sea bass. The sea bass was cooked perfectly. It was my birthday and I got a flan and chips and salsa. Enjoyed after dinner drinks. Best was just taking the elevator up after dinner. Lovely evening!
The food was great but we were the only table for an hour. A few service issues, nothing major, just details. The bar was very loud, made it hard to have a conversation in a room with only one table seated, us.
The food was awesome. The service could be better.
The food is amazing. I can see why it is rated #1 in Santa Fe. Service was ok at best.
Server was really low key. Food was slow coming out and my steak was way under cooked. By the time my steak was served, the ithers in the group were finished eating. He did take 15% off my meal without me having to ask
