Our experience was average. Food was ok. Black Beans were extremely salty to the point where they couldn’t be eaten. Service was slow but that seemed to be the case at most restaurants were visited on the island. I ordered shrimp fajitas which came with 4 tortillas but only 5 shrimp……. Enough for 1and 1/4 shrimp for each fajita. My husband had steak fajitas and had way to much meat for his 4 tortillas. For the most part food was good but stay away from the black beans🙁

Great food, great atmosphere, but pricy! However, weaning is pricy in St. Thomas, so it’s not out of the ordinary.

I have never written a poor review before but the place was awful from start to finish. The only positive was the queso was amazing. The manager was a lanky fellow who resembles Gabe from the show the office. He was SO rude and condescending. He seemed annoyed he had to finish his conversation with his friends at another table with our server. so we could get some drinks. My daughter’s Diet Coke tasty funny and she told him that. He rudely said “I don’t know what funny means. Can you be more descriptive?” I told him my child didn’t know the molecular make up of the soda, she knew it just tasted off. He said he checked the line and it was fine, the server told us the syrup was low and that was the issue. Not if my kids barely ate their food because of a weird white sauce on everything that tasted like sour cream with sugar in it. Just disgusting. Do not eat here. Food was not edible and service was awful and the place was loud.

Good food here, no question. Atmosphere more loud 'TGIFridays' style than laid back tropics. Service all smiles and friendly, but here the Island vibe shows through with slow and spotty. I suggest take out!

Agave was amazing and the service was flawless. Lilly was my server and she always made sure that I was never out of drinks and my food was cooked to order but fast. I am a Chef myself and I love good food. Hats off to the back of the house for some great tasting food. The specials was more than worth it. Hats off to the front of the house for a clean restaurant and lovely ambience. I definitely will be going back.

Food was fantastic, but service was not the best. My meal was brought out and they only brought out the toppings for my husband’s fajitas. He had to hunt down someone to get the actual steak for the fajitas. This was about 15 minutes after I received my meal.

Food was fairly priced and was excellent quality and delicious.

Great meal and ambiance. The bartender Shawn was amazing! He was right there with a delicious cocktail and excellent service he was fast and knowledgeable and courteous and professional. We highly recommend going to agave and sitting in Shawns section! We will specifically ask for Shawn the next time we go there.

The restaurant was packed and there didn’t seem to be enough waitstaff so the service was slow. We sat outside which probably didn’t help. We ordered the nachos which came out cold. The fajitas were good though and they came out hot. Drinks were good but slow to arrive… This place, at least when we visited, was on island time :-)

No waiter turned up to serve us or even great us at our table. We got our chips and salsa over an hour after ordering it after complaining. The rest of the food took even longer.
Luckily the bartender was saved the day and started helping us

We came here given the good reviews on TripAdvisor and we actually regretted the decision. First we arrived on time for our reservation and they took quite a bit of time to give us a table, we then waited for 15-20 minutes for anybody to approach us for a drink. The waiters were not particularly busy but yet everything we ordered took a very long time even beers. We ordered the ceviche at the recommendation of the waiter and it was mostly vegetables and almost no fish nor flavor, it was tasteless and terrible to the point that we return it. The shrimp tacos were good but each taco only had two shrimps in total which was pitiful. The street corn was OK but the corn seemed really overcooked and the best part of the whole meal where the fried plantains which were excellent. I must admit that the waiter removed the charge for the ceviche. This is really not a good restaurant and I am in awe to read the reviews from previous customers. Don’t waste your time since within walking distance there are multiple other restaurants that are much better.

Service here was horrible. Our drinks and food sat on the counter out of the kitchen for 10+ minutes before the waitress brought it to the table. We ordered Sangrias and also would not recommend that, they were just wine with juices shaken up instead of any real fruits. The food was okay, but generally I wouldn’t go back here

I first will say that the food was very good. We had reservations for 6:15. They called me 10 times before then to see if we were coming. When we arrived I told the hostess that we had a 6:15 reservation. She rolled her eyes at me, annoyed that We were there I’m assuming and took us to our table. Our waitress was very nice. We all ordered the Crunchwrap which was excellent. Get the street corn!!! It’s amazing!!!

The salsa and cheese dip are both incredible! Coupled with those amazing chips, I didn’t even need anything else to eat! But, we had the chicken enchiladas as well, and wow. A whole new level of Mexican. Loved everything about the food, the waitress was always attentive and took great care of us, and the atmosphere was amazing. I loved all the details, the vines on the wall, the beautiful leaf chandelier over the bar, the copper sconces throughout. The prices were very reasonable for the quality and freshness. We were sat right away and everything was clean and comfortable.
