Extremely loud music at 6 pm. I took customers here for dinner having never been before and the music was so loud we had to move outside. The staff was accommodating and friendly. Just wish I knew it was more a club atmosphere before I booked the dinner.

I made a reservation for a party of 5 however when we got there, we were sat at a table for 4 and told another chair could be added. Not a big deal but the table was cramped. The service wasn’t great at all, maybe it was our servers first shift but she was pretty bad. Sweet girl but could definitely use more training. Lastly, the drinks weren’t great but the food was! Other than the fact that we watched our fajitas sit in the kitchen window for so long that by the time we were able to notify our server they had been sitting there, everyone was already almost done with their food. No type of apology or compensation was given due to the mistake. This place would be good for people looking to overpay for food and drinks in a fun area.

The restaurant texted me three hours before my reservation to tell me they don’t take Open Table reservations on Sundays and that I would have to walk in. When I arrived at 1:30 they then told me I couldn’t have a walk-in table until 3pm. The hostess was extremely rude and eventually gave us a table after we asked to speak to the manager. She then continued to be rude as our additional guests arrived. Unprofessional and not accommodating when they made the mistake.

Well, they are trying. It's just not that fun eating out on the street. The food was average, but the service was great. Probably won't be back until this whole Covid thing is over.

Every dish was spicy; even the drinks. Chicken was overcooked in the Enchilada Suizas. Staff was really nice but extremely slow and we often had to ask for the same things multiple times.

First time at Nextdoor Agave. Service was excellent. Not crowded on a Friday at 6:30, so we sat outside on the patio with heat lamps. We ordered cocktails, which were really delicious and guacamole to start. We both ordered the 4 taco platter. The fish taco was tasty and we both enjoyed the asada tacos. The carnitas taco was ok, and I could have passed on the surf and turf taco (steak and shrimp), I just didn’t like that combo together. Overall I would recommend this place and I would return. I would like to try other items on the menu.

Amazing customer service prior to my reservation. I had my birthday brunch here on a Sunday. The location accommodated my party of 35. I am beyond pleased with the location, service and food! What took me by surprise was the follow up contact to confirm my experience. Great Job!

We did not know what to expect upon booking this reservation. Unfortunately, our expectations drew low upon seating ourselves in an empty restaurant. Servers and bartenders attempted to be helpful and friendly, although not assigned sections so we’re not present or available when requesting a drink refill or other wants. Food was mediocre at best. Unfortunately will not be going back.

The service was excellent but the food was unacceptable, we return all our food order.

Probably is a good place for nightclub at night but at day time it is not recommendable.

Sunday Funday was lit! My table wasn't ready at the reserved time but the manager made up for it by offering drinks at the bar. We were seated about 5 minutes past my reservation time which was no problem by any means. We sat right next to the awesome DJ! She played many, many hits. She kept the vibe upbeat and the crowd really enjoyed her flavor. The food and drinks were awesome as well! Shrimp taquitos and tacos were spot on with some of the finer restaurants like Red O! We dranks Sidecars and Mango Margarita's and they were delicious, nice and strong! I will definitely be back! It was one of the funnest Sunday Funday's that I have had in a while.

I suggested this place cuz it was new and had good Yelp reviews but we were very disappointed. The ambiance was nice but that where it ended. My wife asked for a Martini and got something that tasted like a vodka margarita. Apparently they don't make a lot of mixed drinks. Quesa fundo wasn't edible and it went downhill from there. Enchilada and tacos were ok but served luke warm. Wont be back.

The food was overall was just ok. Nothing that would make me come back. The noise level in the restaurant was adequate. It was the music from the next door restaurant/bar/club that was too loud. Not to mention the numerous homeless people on the street standing in front of the restaurant. Can't say I'll be coming back any time soon. The customer service was great though.

The food was excellent and the service was very attentive. We had an early dinner on a Tuesday and they were not busy at all. The menu is small and to the point, just a few items done well. Good job.
