Family gathering. Great teriyaki chicken wings for appetizer. We had some local red wine which was very smooth. Wonderful dinner wine. Gf options were good- separate menu. Menu offers very unique options. Would like to go back again to try more unique dishes.

Based on the other reviews, I expected more. I guess it began with the poor greeting at the door, then it ended with very, very slow service of average food. In other words, I was disappointed.

Very nice looking, eclectic restaurant. Dishes were interesting;the vegetable stew was good, but a little salty, my husband really enjoyed his bean burger, the lasagna was a little unusual, not to our liking. Beer choices were great, lots of craft brews.

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.
