Nice place ever! – Just visit at first time for lunch with friends, all were happy with quick but yummy and great service.
Good, but not the best – Although this popular, crowded spot is tasty, it is certainly not the best Mexican food around. They have good guacamole, but only give you a few chips to eat it with. The blue corn enchiladas are excellent and the grilled corn appetizer is delicious. Stay away from the Santa Fe shepherd's pie though...it's like eating hamburger helper.
Great Mexican Restaurant – If you are looking for some great meixcan cuisine, this is the by far one of the best mexican restaurants I have ever been too. If you are in New York, in the West Village it is worth checking out. I had some tacos and enchiladas, they were to die for. I also enjoyed a couple of margaritas.
Great Mexican Food. – I have been going to Agave for years. The food is always consistent as is the service. I have never had a bad meal there. I recently took my mom there for brunch when she was in town, she loved it...she even had a couple of frozen margaritas so she was feeling pretty good and it made her visit that much more bearable.
awesome agave – as a student in new york, it is not often you can find great value for a reasonable cost. this is why my friends and i LOVE agave!! it's in very central location, great neighborhood, great people, great atmostphere (in and outside the restaurant) at least once a month i take some friends here, or family visiting from out of town for delicious drinks (especially if you like tequila ;) and delicious comfort good. corn & chicken chowder and enchiladas w/ mole sauce are my favorites!!
great service..the hostess and wait staff always remember my face and are so welcoming each time!
We had the BEST time this weekend! – I felt compelled to write after reading the pretentious review by the college kid beneath me. I love Agave. I love hosting parties in their private room. I love the fact that I always feel taken care of. It's a neighborhood place with great food, the occasional celebrity, and a warm and unique staff. What more could you ask for?
The horror, the horror – I have to say, I was shocked by the poor level of quality to be found at the rather underwhelming Tex-Mex establishment Agave in New York's otherwise charming downtown. Leather-dry flautas lay uneasily beside rubbery chili con carne of dubious esteem, as a faint odor of burnt cumin lingers heavily in the loud-music-infused air. When one thinks of fajitas, one imagines succulent strips of grilled meat, succulent glossy vegetables, and steamy, snow-white sheets of tortillas flowing together in a mélange of delicate and supple flavors. The fajitas at Agave, unfortunately, were a different story: an abnormal admixture of soggy and stale ingredients lacking the freshness and exotic vitality ones seeks out when the first pangs of hunger make themselves known. It was the late Samuel Johnson who uttered that "A man seldom thinks with more earnestness of anything than he does of his dinner." Sadly, Mr. Johnson, sir, I would just as soon not think about Agave's paltry offerings for as long as I live, so little was I inspired by them.
I Love This Place... over and over again – I always have loved this place.. been going for years and it stays wonderful... food is great, drinks are great, service is always great... good price for large, delicious portions... yummy prickely pear margaritas!!!! run and eat!!!
Great people watching, better brunch! – had some friends in town for the long weekend and stopped in agave sunday afternoon for brunch. we sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful day. the guacamole app was some of the best guac i've had and my friends devoured their huevos rancheros and and texax pecan apple pancakes! sooo yummy! i'll be back next weekend.
