“The value is great (two drinks, a meal and dessert for 25 bucks) and the staff is too.”
“Never asked us if we wanted more drinks, sat with dirty dishes in front of us.”
“The food alone gave me a great sense of satisfaction, when my date suggested some drinks at the bar as there was a DJ playing festive Spanish music.”
“The food was great and there was a variety to choose from on the menu.”
“it's a good place to go for drinks and they have happy hour”
“All in all I would not go back for food, however, if you like overly sweet mojitos that are weak as can be this may be your spot, if you can make your way to the bar (way too small and crowded) you can drink them at buy one get one 5-8.”
“have to say the managers have gotten rid of the horrible service.”
“prefer eating tappas because you get a good variety for your money.”
“and with the selection of tapas make sure to try everything, just make sure to arrive a bit early since the "bar/lounge" where happy hour is hold fills up rather quickly,( i don t know if they allow reservations for the lounge) is a great place to meet up”
Great food, Great time!!!!!.

Great food and great value!.
Walked in to Agozar because of the fab happy hour deals on Sat night. What a pleasant surprise! Can't wait to go back for the buy 1 get 1 free drinks and tapas. The food was fabulous and the portions were plenty for two to share. Rather generous for a tapas plate! Best thing were the drinks. Loved the mojitos, sangritos (sangria + mojito = bliss) and the caipirinhas. Friendly service too! What a find!
The hostess/bartender was so overwhelmed she was rude and not attentative. The waiter not friendly at all. Went for Sunday brunch. I like the food but am iffy to return because did not like how I was treated.
Average Brunch place in New York.
Don't bother, just go to Calle Ocho instead. It's the same concept but see how good brunch can taste and have a choice of Sangria. Agozar's food was just average - not bad, but just not good - the kind of place you'll forget you even went to in a month or so.
Great HH deals.
Went to dinner here (4 in our group), and was seated at the bar area, which we didn't mind. Thank goodness we were! They have great HH deals where if you buy one drink or tapas, you get one free (they have a menu you can buy off of). Otherwise, a small tapas costs like $10-15, which is fine if you're in an upscale tapas bar, but not if you're in the village. Also, I'm a big ambience- girl (like to pick restaurants depending on what ambience I want) and this place was very "let's get a big group together for a casual night out", which also doesn't warrant the price. Food was average. as in there were some dishes that were really good and some dishes that weren't. I'd go back for only for HH; full-priced dinner menu is not worth it.
Vibrant Atmosphere, Hot Crowd.
I had a party of 22 for the weekend, and every single restaurant I called was hesitant about accommodating our party. They were throwing out ridiculous prices for pre-fix menus and $75 per person. The real problem was, the group of people we had didn't know each other very well, so we needed a fun atmosphere that allowed us to be rambunctious, move around, and have some good, moderately priced food. Agozar was amazing from the minute the hostess answered the phone. The manager was cordial and followed through on prompt call-backs. They even checked up with me the day before our reservation to make sure there weren't any changes to the party. The wait staff then took all 22 INDIVIDUAL drink, appetizer, and main course orders. And then, when serving the meals, they didn't have to ask us who ordered what... they remembered us! The food was INCREDIBLE (the pulled pork dish was a group favorite, as was the calamari), and the plaintains and guacamole really made for great conversation. This is such a good ice breaker, and the environment really suited the big group. Bravo, Agozar... and thanks for putting up with us!
Definitely a nice spot to attend on the weekend. I don't do the happy hour and haven't tried much of the food. What i did have was tasty. But the bar service is always excellent and I find the mojitos to be some of the best in the city for the money. When you go outside you can see some other spots in the area with all their button down shirt, hard bottom shoed, i'm not from here douchery in full force. Fortunately you will not experience that at Agozar. Its a chill atmosphere. You can wear hats and sneakers. You can drink outside when its warm enough as well. Saturdays they usually have a good DJ. I love this place and always go back for more. I see some bad reviews on here but they are pretty old. I had a blast last weekend. Do you and your friends a favor and check it out. If Ron is bartending you can't go wrong.
