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.

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.

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.

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

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 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.

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!
