Food Good, Ambience Fair, Service Poor. Didnt really Agozar. – Considering it was our first time there, the Welcome was not warm. Dissapointment set in from the time we met the host who greeted us with a (Huh?) when we asked if the ask if the Airconditiong was on. The subpar experience contiued when the waiter first approached the table. No introduction, no run down on of the menu, no personality period. When we mentioned that it was our first time there he said "thats nice". Ummm. Food was ok, I have had better Cuban. Apps were small and odd numbered portions. Entrees were better, vaca fita was pretty good. Chocalate cake alamode was pretty in presentaion but dry as new sponge. Over all a dissapointment for spending $200 for 4 people. If your just looking for a place with cheap happy hours drinks, mediocre service and so so atmosphere, then go there, it is the place for you. However if you value your money, time and wish to be happy with your service, meal and drinks, look elsewhere. You'll be glad you did. This is NYC you can get a drink and some eats anywhere but if youre not pleased when you leave you'll be asking your self, "was it really worth it?
Start off disappointing but improves – A friend and I went for a girls night out. When we arrived the kitchen was about to close but we were able to order. The waitress gave a bit of an attitude. The food was excellent, very good in favor and portion. I had the paella, great highly recommend. Since we arrived with twenty minutes to midnight we asked about the special at the bar. The bartender did the right thing and gave us 2 for 1 on drinks which were very good (sangria). At the end of the night when the bill came it was very fair and reasonable
No GO – Mojito sucks,drink smelled like raw pork,sweet plaintains is merely fried banans,not event sweet,shrimps w garlic sauce is mini tiny shrimps. No go for food.
Nosotros Agozamos! (we enjoyed ourselves!) – I planned a Happy Hour get-together for 10 of my friends/co-workers at Agozar this past Friday. Because Agozar is such a small place (per their website pictures), I made the reservations a week in advance and there were no problems. They even confirmed the night before. This was our first time there and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. It was conveniently located from the "6" train so no one got lost. The service was excellent and very attentive. We took advantage of the 2 for one Happy Hour drinks and tapas. There was a nice crowd, it was clean, the music was good and not so loud that we had to scream to hear each other talk and the drinks definitely weren't weak like in many other bars/lounges in NYC. A great time was had by everyone... I definitely recommend this place for a fun Happy Hour!
Great drinks, very friendly people, cute atmosphere – My three friends and I stopped in to get some drinks and tapas--everyone there, from the staff, the "regulars" and the other people there were so friendly. The drinks were wonderful and the service was exceptional. I would love to go back. THere was a great special--2 drinks for the price of 1, and we were there on a Saturday night at 11! They even gave us the same deal for the tapas. The only thing is that the place is a bit small/cramped.
It just keeps getting better :) A Must Try! – I work closely to Agozar, so I stop by every 2 weeks or so for the Happy Hour and usually I stay a bit later because I get nestled in with my friends and we always have a good time there. I have been coming here for about 2 years and I have to say the service was poor a few months ago, but I came back because of the value and because it was one of our top hang out spots. I have to say the managers have gotten rid of the horrible service. Jorge has always been a sweetheart and they just hired the first girl I've seen in a while. She was our waitress last night and she did a great job. I sat in the dining room and the place was swamped, but I was never thirsty and our tapas were not only delicious, but they cleared the plates as soon as we finished each to make room for more. Janet was taking care of 2 huge parties and she constantly checked on us and glanced over. I've always liked the food and the atmosphere. The service took a slump for a while, but they took care of that problem. Everything came out quickly and we were given service with a genuine smile. GREAT PLACE DURING A RECESSION! This place has turned itself around :) 2 thumbs up for sure...
we recomend NOT to come here – We had an so-so exp here...while we have come here for years and I now have to agree with other reviewers , the service is unacceptable , we have been loyal to this team that brought a great happy hour to the bowery.
Unfortunately they have just lost another 8+ customers. Along with the slow service that has become an every night thing here, we celebrated my birthday there last week in the evening, We were so upset at the $$$ we spent here and the slow "unfriendly" service we received. The food was so so ...drinks were way watered down and extremely slow during happy hour,at trying to get your "buy one get one" Sadly this place has gone "down the tubes" If you have not done you research and must go here to meet people I can only recommend the chorizo, its probably the their tastiest dish I guess, but by far the greasiest I have ever had. Don't bother with the happy hour...its stinks
Awesome Restaurant – This place has it all. Great food, ambience, and service. The mojitos are the best anywhere and there is a happy hour everyday.
yummy coconut mojito! – Some friends and I went on Saturday night and had a fantastic time. Our mojitos were awesome...they definitely have a selection. The waiter was polite and friendly and knew all the right things to recommend. We especially loved the stuffed tomato with chorizo & raisins, yum. Everything just melts in your mouth. All the tapas were really nice and the best part is, the prices...definitely helps with a big group. We'll definitely be back. I highly recommend it.
Best Cuban food in all of New York! – this place is the place to be, if you are in the mood for quality cuban food then this is the place to be, in addition they have great service, i have been there 3 times and intend on going again, they usually have a dj on the weekends, and are always playing todays hip music, i recomend anyone to give this place a try, you wont regret it, youll walk out with a smile,
