Atmosphere and music were nice. Wait staff were very conscientious and helpful. Calamari appetizer was good. We had ribeye steak, but it did not taste like ribeye steak, possibly a lower grade of meat. Ordered a french martini which ended up being $18. Drink was good, but price not so good.

Agency Socialthèque has a wonderful ambience. The service is both engaging and pleasant. Finally, the food was absolutely delicious. I ordered the Lobster and Shrimp Spaghetti. I will definitely be back to order this dish again. My date ordered the Salmon with a side of mashed potatoes. She raved about how savory the food is.

Beautiful, dimly-lit venue, w/ live, neo-soul music and sexy, upscale vibes. My friends and I dined here on a Friday night (during Covid) and overall, we had a nice time.

The strategically small crowd and table partitions gave us enough comfort to feel socially distant. The drink I had throughout the night was called the Bramble On. Very delicious and not watered down!

However, the reason I gave this venue 3-stars is due to... the LACKLUSTER food and service. Although the food was well seasoned, it still failed in execution. The calamari was soggy, not crispy. The lobster bisque was basically tomato soup and I’m pretty sure the tiny bits of meat inside weren’t even real lobster. Finally, while the lamb chops were delicious (seasoned and cooked to medium-rare perfection), the risotto that came with it was HORRIBLE! Dry, cold, way too thick and almost tasted like I was eating PASTE. Risotto is suppose to be a warm, smooth, creamy rice... not lumpy, gummy or GLUE like. A real chef would’ve never served risotto to a customer like this.

The service at this spot was also lackluster... given the current COVID climate. Our waiter kept using his mask as “chin decoration”. Even after I asked him to put his mask on over his nose & mouth... he kept pulling it down while talking to us. His demeanor was also a tad unprofessional anyway, so not surprised he didn’t take his job seriously. I wanted to request a new server, but I took him as the type of person that would cough or spit on my food out of spite.

Overall tho, we had a decent night. Upscale ambiance, good vibes and delicious drinks. Servers need more COVID training and chefs definitely need more common sense.

FYI: This is not a black owned establishment. I wish the black community would stop promoting it as such. If you go... go because you want to try it and if you enjoy it, enjoy it for what it is... not because you think it’s black owned. Because it’s not. Google!

The food was ok. I had the Island Salmon it was bland, I had to shake salt on it and I never so that. It was a pretty plate just underwhelming flavor. The strawberry shortcake was another pretty plate but tasted like sweet cinnamon cornbread. Not what I was expecting. The ambiance was your average restaurant the DJ was good. A bit loud but cool.

I write this review with mixed feelings! The restaurant decor is well appointed. The ambience is very nice, and the live DJ. It has a great energy. Here is my problem.. I made the reservation for a birthday celebration. Our waiter seemed over burden based on the number of tables he had to service. He forgot to place our dinner order, and once we reminded him. It took additional hour to come out. When he delivered it to the table it was wrong! First, the manager tried to compensate with a 20% discount and an apology for the delay. When we informed her that the order was wrong. She offered to take the item off our finish bill. When we received the final there was a 20% gratuity added for a party of two. When I finished with the manager my displeasure with the service, and why was there gratuity added without consent, and that our server did not earn it. Her response was it is a default charge that is being assessed because of the pandemic! My final bill was almost $200 dollars. When I calmly expressed my disagreement with this default. Her response was I give you a 20% discount. I did not asked nor expected for a discount. I just wanted a great dining experience.

I love this place. The food never disappoints, the service impeccable, and the drinks are not watered down. Our waiters were very personable and friendly. My friend and I forgot our sanitizer in our cars. Instead of walking to one of the sanitizing stations, one of our waiters put some in a container and brought it to us. Amazing staff!

Very cute restaurant with a nice “date night” or “girlfriends night out” feel. The food was just okay but like I said if you are hanging with your friends it works because you do more talking than eating. Overall, if you are looking for light eats and drinks with a good ambience (sometimes with dj) The Agency is good just for that. However if you are looking for an amazing food experience I do not recommend. Should be a tapas, dessert & drinks spots.

I always have a great time. I was charged for a Don Julio anejo tequila when I asked for Don Julio silver tequila. It could have been that the waiter didn’t hear me correctly due to the dj and talking in the restaurant. I was sitting close to the kitchen area so all of the noise may have been an issue. I didn’t expect to pay $75 for two drinks that are about half the price for the tequila I requested. Hopefully this mistake will not happen again.

Agency is so chic! I really enjoyed the ambiance here. The decor is beautiful and the whole place is sexy! The DJ is a whole vibe and the waiters are super attentive.

The food is also amazing! Everyone knows you usually don’t get BOTH, but Agency delivers! I had the burger with truffle fries and it was delicious! I order well done and it wasn’t dry at all. My friend had the salmon and raves about it. I will definitely be back.
