Had a great server who assisted us in ordering a very nice dinner for four people.
Been here twice in two months, there are no bad menu items, if you like Italian, Ago will spoil you, and the service is outstanding.
Our waiter was condescending and sarcastic and not in a funny haha kind if way. He built very poor rapport and honestly, seemed to care less about us. It was all about him. I’ve been coming here frequently over the years and have had mostly good experiences.
Based on this experience I doubt seriously if I’ll be back. It’s ironic that your lowest paid employee can have such a negative impact on your earnings.
Family and special Environment . You can go with children or someone special. The menu is not big but they have a great option to have a good meal!!
They screwed up on a gift certificate. They took it, reduced the price properly and then charged are cards more than the total amount before the deduction for the gift certificate. We called when we saw what they had done. They said it would be taken care of the next day and it wasn’t. I’m still talking with my card company and trying to find out why Ago has not taken care of this.
This is our go-to place ! Love the old school atmosphere and the food is always good - never had a bad meal ! Abel, the manager, is the epitome of a good host !
As soon as we walked in we where greeted with a smile and excellent service , the food drinks staff are all nice and great service , Abel made sure we where happy and satisfied. Thanks
The staff at Ago are always great. A favorite of my family for a decade.
One of my favorite restaurant great service great food I would highly recommend it
The scenery was nice but the food was pretty bland. For the price we were very underwhelmed.
saw Lebron James, food and service was amazing per usual. 10/10
Probably the worst Italian meal I have ever had. The chicken parm looked like a pizza and was really dry. The pasta tasted like old expired out of the box pasta. The meatballs tasted like the kind you get in the freezer section of a grocery store.
Wonderful place with delicious food
We try and make it over to Ago at least once or twice while in town for business.
If you like Italian, the food is delicious and the service is always good.
Can't go wrong, We'll be back
They where a little late seating us for our table due to how packed the place was on a Saturday night but, once we sat down every course and drink was delivered promptly and amazing. I can only really think of 3 other Italian restaurants that deliver on this level. Food is impeccable and the vibe is always perfect.
We had a reservation and waited over an hour to get seated. Only after I told the hostess that we were there for a date night and had a sitter at home did she begin to prioritize our table - we already wasted an hour of that just waiting for a table. For the record, when we arrived the hostess said it would be a 5-10min wait, I don't understand how she could be that off. We sat at an incredibly small table that did not accommodate more than 3plates. When the waiter brought our entrees, our table was full of plates from our apps and bread basket. He made us lift our many dirty plates while he set the entree plates down on the table. Kind of awkward why he wouldn't just have cleared the table first. All in, terrible terrible service, very mediocre food, and a rather old crowd not at all diversified. Not worth the wait or food or anything for that matter
That time everything was perfect !!!
Quality of food and service perfect
Food was amazing!
Best wood oven baked steak. Great wine list at good value. Excellent service
I would not recommend Ago for Valentine's Day, which was when we visited it for the first time. I have been meaning to try this place since we moved into the area three years ago and see it every time we are next door at Taste. I cannot say whether or not this would be a great place on any other night but they were not on their "A-Game" for Valentine's Day.
We showed up exactly on time for our reservations but were seated twenty minutes later.
My risotto arrived 15 minutes before my partner's osso bucco and neither were anything to write home about or justify the inflated (I hope) Valentine's Day pricing.
We had a lovely evening but could have probably had a better one at home. Perhaps that says more about going out on Valentine's Day than it does about this particular restaurant itself, nevertheless, I don't think I will be back based on this particular evening's showing.
The food is quite good, but the service is chaotic. We had to wait 20 minutes after a reservation to be seated, then another 20+ minutes to order. After that, the food took ages to arrive, and we had several incorrect plates delivered to the table by mistake. The staff were polite and apologetic, but clearly frazzled. You can't be this disorganized at this price point.
The restaurant had Great tasting food. Great drinks. Nice DJ. The Pizza is out of this world.
The food at Ago is always extremely good, extremely fresh and well prepared. The noise level can be a little bit daunting if you really want to chat with your dinner companions. We dine at Ago several times a month and my only complaint is that the service can be a little too offhand...Forgotten food, main course arriving while we’re in the middle of our appetizer, the waiter being reluctant to replace something that is wrong. These complaints not withstanding, we will still frequent the restaurant.
We had a great time and the food was very good.
It just wasn't worth it. I have had better Italian in LA
Had a good time and great food
One of my favorite places
Had to push past the smokers to enter the restaurant. Entrees took forever to arrive & the mushroom pasta was overcooked & mushy. The caprese salad tomatoes were like east coast winter tomatoes...hard and tastless. The wine glasses were like coke bottles & not worthy of the wine we bought. The waitress was very nice and gave us a dessert to try mitigate the time it took to receive our meal. The restaurant was so loud, we couldn’t even hear each other speak. VERY disappointing!
Food was good and authentic, but service was lacking
We had a business dinner and sat outside to smoke. On a beautiful night, the patio was fabulous. We had the dover sole and langoustines. Both incredible. Abel, the GM made sure we were well taken care of. Superb evening. Thank you, Ago.
Been coming here for years and years. Never a disappointment. Thanks AGO for being consistently great
Another great experience including service, flavors, and ambiance. We drive from th OC monthly we love this place so much!
We've been to Ago on several occasions now and it does not disappoint. The ambiance is lovely, the food is excellent, and the staff superb. We will definitely be back the next time business brings us to LA.
Amazing appetizer with carpaccio/cheese/truffle, one of the best things I’ve ever had.
And the truffle pasta was also really good.
Ago is one of my favorite restaurants and I go to dine there often. The food is always spectacular.
Food was extremely bland. Christmas music on repeat.
Very amazing food. Service was not very good.
