    We came here over WMO and the people next to us were sat for 35 minutes with not even chips and salsa yet. We walked out, plan more accordingly with staff and stop taking reservations if you are completely booked.. super sad bc the food here is amazing usually we just didn’t get to eat it this night! ):

    Food is very good. Service was very much lacking. Front of house staff very short, no bartender - servers were making drinks and serving food. Staff looked to be running at 40% max on a Friday night. Should not have allowed as many reservations for the night nor any walk in traffic. There seems to be a lack of management.

    Very Unique Food. Less portions with very distinct one of a kind flavor. The server was very passionate about how the food was made, where it was inspired from. Had a wonderful time. The ambiance was beautiful. The empty lit bottles of alcohol as art was very interesting to look at around the room.

    The food was good. I had shrimp . I remember being able to have fish before so I was disappointed it was a different menu. It would have been nice to have a Fri fish special at least. Bit disappointed we were sat in dining area away from main area . Other 2 people liked their food too. I’d still go back

    They changed their menu several months ago, not for the better. What used to be a varied menu with many items not normally found at your run of the mill Mexican restaurant. Now it’s mostly tacos and enchiladas, nothing special as before. The food is still good but wish the old menu returns!

    We sat and the hostess brought waters. 15 minutes later we still had not been greeted by any service staff, even though there were several walking around. Had to get up and leave, on New Year’s Eve. No one seemed to care…

    PARTY of 8 People Review - - First, I have to say our waiter was AMAZING! She was kind, thoughtful, and very energetic. She gets a 20/10. Loved that she even checked in with our table to make sure the music wasn't too loud. The reason I would most likely not come back isn't because the food was bad (I loved my meal actually). It is because of upper management. Someone in my group ordered steak and they overcooked her food. The kitchen admitted to knowing this but pushed the dish out anyway. It took so long for the kitchen to remake/bring out another dish for the person in my party that they had to take it in a bag to eat at home at 10:00 pm. :( Not a way you want to enjoy a restaurant especially when the other 7 people in your group were fed. Pretty bad and embarrassing to say the least for the restaurant. We are very patient people but everyone finished their meal and we still all waited 20 minutes after that for our party member to get their meal put in a takeout bag. YIKES!

    I will call the manager also. The food was so bland, I'm not talking spicy, there was no flavor to the 3 items ordered. The server did remove the charges for 1 appetizer. The other 2 items ordered were just as bad. I will not go back.

    This was first visit to Agave Del Scottsdale. I look forward already to a return visit. Agave Del Scottsdale is a very welcoming restaurant. We felt at home as soon as we walked in. Then our server, Shereese, took welcoming and helpfulness to another level. In addition to a wonderful personality, Shereese clearly knew the menu and was able to assist with all our questions and make suggestions that were perfect. Shereese was perhaps the best restaurant server we've ever experienced. The appetizers and entrees were very good and lived up to their descriptions and recommendations. With many more interesting selections, we are looking forward to returning to Agave Del Scottsdale.
