We had the Sunday prime rib special several weeks ago and it was delicious. We hadn't been to Agave in about 3 years due to a horrible experience. After returning last night for the same wonderful meal, we were sorely disappointed. Our medium rare request was met with raw meat that was taken back and rendered grey by the microwave.... More

Four of us ate there over the holidays for a special holiday meal. The prim rib must have been sliced on a lunch meat slicer.It was that thin.the order got mixed up and Med rare was well done.The desert was hard and dry and ineatable

On the way back to Tucson from the Tubac Arts Festival, we decided to stop here for lunch. We both ordered their fish and chips ($11). For some reason, I got four pieces of fish and my wife only got three, of the exact same size. (Is this a "Women eat less thing?") The chips (fries) were very good and... More

Noticed they have a two for $29.95 Prime Rib Special on Sundays so we decided to take advantage of that bargain! All four of us ordered the prime rib, med rare. We elected to try the fried Avacado for $5 and that was a delight. Our dinners arrived on hot plates and the prime ribs were outstanding. Generous portions were... More

In comparison to their buffet the Agave is overpriced and service is mediocre. In all fairness we've only eaten there twice but I wouldn't go back a 3rd time. Their buffet in the casino is 100 times better and even their grill is better which we use often for a quick lunch.

Very good food and service. Cannot beat 2 for $20 lunch here. Not rushed. Outside the casino by the auditorium.

The food and the wait staff are very prompt, polite and eager to answer any questions about the menu or wine offerings. Food and wine are good and usually hot when served.

Had lunch there. The interior of the restaurant is quite nice and you don't have to go through the casino to get to it. We stood there with another couple waiting to be seated while the hostess was just going over some papers behind the counter. Was quite a long wait and we were getting tired of waiting as was...

My husband and I had dinner here on a Saturday evening. Not overly crowded, no wait to be seated. The menu was not overly diverse but the food was delicious. The price was reasonable. The ambiance and views made the experience so romantic. The service was really great. Quiet and tranquil dining.

Thank M D
