We took our son and a large group of friends to dinner. The staff could not have been nicer in accommodating our group, and letting us enjoy a leisurely dinner. The food and drink were excellent with something for everyone.

Great Saturday Brunch! Had the Benedictos which was awesome. My sister had the Strawberry Fields. Make sure you get there early as they will fill up pretty quickly. We will be back!

We had a party of five for Sunday brunch. They were quite busy after 11:30--they open at 11:00. Service was good with one glitch: a member of our party specifically ordered the Huevos Rancheros with scrambled eggs (which they said "no problem"). It came with...More

I checked on TripAdvisor for a lunch spot in Ithaca when I was in town for some shopping. Although it wasn't near where I was going I'm glad I drove the extra way to have lunch here. The outside of the building isn't too impressive...More

Excellent service by a great staff. And the food was equally good too. Unfortunately a couple of the dishes we ordered had run out but the alternatives were also great.

Stopped for brunch during a visit to see my daughter a student at Cornell. We often go here and it never disappoints. Service was excellent and friendly. We sat outside, I thought it would be cold but it was an absolute pleasure.

Went here on a recommendation and it was WORTH it. Excellent food and service. Wish there was one closer to us and not five hours away. Will be back again.

The AGAVA restaurant concept is rooted in local, farm-to-table cuisine, seasonal menu and a Southwest-Inspired palette. One of the central design and functional elements is a wood-fired oven with eating bar in the main dining space, serving up flatbreads and a range of other fire-roasted cuisine. Our bar is destination of its own; from the unique spirits & cocktails, to an environment and space you have to see for yourself. We feature one of the most unique interior spaces in the central NY region, drawing from both southwestern design elements like “latillas’ as well as local historical features like reclaimed barn wood. We’re based in the old East Ithaca Train Station, commissioned in 1876 by Ezra Cornell.
