    Virgin Agave

    Ok, when I order a tequila drink, I expect there to be tequila in it. Two drinks and still not even a slight drop of tequila. And those are not cheap drinks. The appetizer was fried calamari. Well, we all know it's tough to mess up any fried foods. So of course it was fine. The entree was the pork tenderloin special, which had a nice flavorful sauce, but again, it lacked pork. The portion was so meager that I pity anyone who orders it. The others at the table had a shrimp taco and an order of sizzling beef or steak fajitas. I tried the shrimp taco which was good but it wasn't worth the price. So, overall, if you go here, don't order anything but beer or wine, or else it will not have alcohol. And if you order an entree, try to get the tacos or fajitas or else you'll leave Agave and go straight home to your refrigerator looking for something to eat for dinner.

    Good food, bad service

    Agave has always been our go to neighborhood restaurant. Last night will make us rethink that. Our reservation was at 6:30 and we were seated promptly. Normally, a small tray of chips with vaious salsas came to the table. Not this night. We ordered our drinks and then decided on what to eat. Our server came over and asked for our order. We were never told about any specials. We order the food, Santa Fe Shephard's pie for me, chick quesadillas for my husband. Delicious as always. The server never came by to ask how our meals were or if we need a drink refill. We noticed other tables had more attentive servers. At the end of our meal we would have liked to see the dessert menu but our server was nowhere to be found. Took about 15 minutes to flag someone down to clear the table and another wait for our check. All in all, a disappointing evening.

    Unappetizing food and poor service

    One word: disappointing. I had read great reviews beforehand, but we experienced the complete opposite. We waited forever for the waitress to come to our table 1) to take the order, 2) to check on how our food was, and 3) to bring a replacement dish (since they included cheese in every dish even though we specifically told her that we're allergic to the cheese). Not her fault as she seemed kind, but she just had too many tables to wait on. Also, we got the grilled corn on the cob that tasted and smelt...like cigarettes. No joke -- it was nauseating and should be illegal. One of the most unappetizing dishes we ever ate in our lives. Not good when your first stop after dinner is to find gum so you can get the taste out of your mouth. Save yourself time and do not go here.

    Hmmmm...

    So I had my birthday brunch here... The food was good - the drinks yummy - fun time...but it truly appeared that they did not keep the drinks straight especially when most of the guests had the brunch special for 18 dollars or so... With a party of 10 we did not have the time or patience to break down the bill - but it was over 500 dollars so we were definitely ripped off. Also the frozen machine died toward the end and they were kind of like "tough luck".

    Seriously?

    The people were great but very amateur at what they do.... Bartender was missing and nobody knew how to serve a beer or pour a glass of wine; at 14 dollars you would expect real meat cooked the way you asked; the "skirt steak" taco was not fully cooked nor was it quality skirt steak. The setting is beautiful but for flavorful food go to the taco truck on 6th avenue.

    My new favorite

    I have recently moved outside of the city but everytime I come back to visit (which is quite often) I have to go to Agave. The guacamole is perfectly simple and flavorful. The cheese spinach dip is heavenly. The steak quesadilla? The best I've ever had. Although I've been several times, today I had outstandingly exceptional service and I wanted to right a review to return the good karma! Agave is the best Mexican restaurant in NYC

    Pleasantly surprised

    My husband and I were in the area and decided to try it. The bar was packed, so I assumed it was the type of place with great margaritas and subpar food--not the case (well, the margaritas may be tasty, but the food was too). I ordered a chicken with yellow and red pepper sauce and it was flavorful, moist, and filling with tasty sides of blue corn tortillas stuffed with cheese. My hubby liked his enchiladas too. Our side of spinach was a little oily, and our waiter, though helpful and friendly, was hard to find at times, but I'd go back. The entrees are pricey (about $18 to $25), but I didn't mind because the atmosphere was lovely and the food was yummy. Order the xango for dessert--banana and cheesecake-stuffed pastries with vanilla ice cream.
