“loved the cozy atmosphere so much so I'm actually considering having my boyfriend's birthday celebration here.”
“Careful ordering the expensive "house specialty" guacamole though -- tasty, but be prepared for a couple of spoonfuls of yummy guac overshadowed by twice as much pico de gallo and sour cream.”
“too crowded, the drinks were too small and WAY OVERPRICED (a bad mojito in a what was about an 8 oz glass was 10 dollars), and the service was horrible (out waitress disappeared for most of the evening).”
“The prickly pear margaritas were wonderful and the large enough to share creme brulee was heavenly.”
“Also, the waiter was very helpful during the course of the meal, most notably by their knowledge of wine pairings to accompany the offerings on the menu.”
“This is a nice place”
“would never go back and would never recommend Agave to any of my friends.”
“Unfortunately although I think they're food is good, I will never go back there again until the employees at Agave learn to put a SMILE on their face.”
“as a student in new york, it is not often you can find great value for a reasonable cost.”
“had been there before for brunch and even with a reservation, I still had to wait and service was very slow.”
Agave colored dream.
On the recomendation of a friendly villager who frequents Agave I made my first trip on thursday night. They had said that the ambiance had changed slightly with new management but the food and staff has always made time at Agave well spent. The swordfish tacos along with some delightful ceviche, and throw in some Heavenly sort of mango dessert, made for a touch of nirvana. I must admit I was on a date, but was much more interested in the coziness, the music, margaritas and our lovely server named Melissa. The bankhead seating is a little tough on the back but overall, the experience was like a breath of fresh air. (maybe a little more spice in the chowder?)
I will see the adobe walls at Agave again soon!
Delightful and delicious!. As soon as I entered Agave, I was taken by the warm lighting and the authentic, southwestern decor. The staff was very welcoming, and provided fast, and friendly service. The guacamoli was great! It was so fresh. The stuffed porkchops were unbelieveably good! With the warm apples and walnuts, it was a such a fulfilling dish. Agave is great for all ages, and has great prices!
1 STAR WAS GENEROUS. Had dinner at Agave Tuesday night - just before the NYT gave them ONE star. Agave has a gaurdian angel, one star was more than gererous . . . thank god there were cocktails to appease the headache of a menu and the series of bland and confused dishes that consistently fell short of yum!
not as good as reviews.
although it's visually pleasing in an intimate setting, i was not impressed with the food. I was expecting incredible and unique dishes from the reviews I read but was disappointed with the actual taste. With a waitress recommendation, I tried the duck quesadilla flavored with mexican seasoning, but it tasted just like a Taco Bell. My husband had a steak, which he considered just average. However, the service and ambiance was enjoyable.
I suppose I am spoiled, though, since I am from San Diego and just 20 miles from the mexican border. However, the "southwestern" food is not outstanding.
A breath of fresh air. I recently had my first experience with this restaurant and I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. I ordered the cinnamon, brioche french toast (Sunday brunch) - delightfully rich and sensuous - I would definitely recommend. The most remarkable trait of the place however was the service - warm, friendly and very attentive. ;-)
southwestern village. good fingerfood, some inexpensive and expensive dishes, the food was well seasoned and hood tating margaritas
Excellent. Excellent restaurant. The food is excellent and the servings are a good size. The decor is beautiful and the service is knowledgable and good. The drinks are great. The brunch is fun and lively. I have been back three times and will make it a regular spot.
Southwestern Jewel. This is a very pleasant transition from 7th Ave to the warm, vibrant SW. The restaurant embodies romance and history with beautiful clean lines and Indian artifacts, reminiscent of a small museum. The food is exquisite. And keep your finger on your selection until you give your order or you will lose it among the variety and lavish descriptions of other items on the menu. The culinary presentation is first-rate and the service is helpful and friendly! Not to be missed and it will be an adventure to make your way thru all the enticing items on the menu.
The Way Southwest Should Be. A wonderful addition to the West Village scene! I never realized I'd enjoy a Southwestern restaurant this much, but everything- from a fun, exciting menu to the beautiful candle-lighting and decor- lets me know I'll be returning soon. There were so many interesting dishes on the menu, we ended up ordering a whole bunch and sharing (try the Shortribs). We came as a group, but it would also make a great date restaurant, with plenty of romance in the air. Noticed some comments about the service, but we had no complaints, the staff was friendly and attentive. The outside is a little disconcerting, though. All in all, one of the best nights out I've had in a while, and at a really great price.
A visit to New Mexico on 7th Ave..
New Southwestern restaurant in the village is excellent. Complete re-do of the previous incarnations in a space on 7th ave just below Charles St. takes one to the adobe places of Sante Fe. The Bar upfront at the entrance is large and comphotable with what seems to be a legit smoking section. The food is authentic southwestern with a great posole stew and some terrific, hearty entres.
Had the rib eye steak which rocked! Wine List looked well balenced(did not partake). The service needs some work but everyone was trying hard.
