Quality food and good service. Restaurant was completely empty when we got there about 6pm and only one other table added by 7pm. Bar with happy hour was more full. Seems the locals don't see the value for dinner and I'd agree. Food was well done but nothing special. I have a general rule to avoid Mexican food in NYC... More

I'm from Ireland and when it says 2 hours brunch I thought it would be two hours. We had a 2pm booking arrived at 1.55pm and were eventually seated and served our first drink at 2.25pm. Then at 3.45 the waiter came over and served us our last drink. So really it's not a 2hour brunch! Disappointing. Food was fab... More

They seriously know how to do a boozy brunch - with refills coming before you even finish your first mimosa. We went on a Friday morning (not a long weekend) and it was just opening (11am reservation). We were a bit disappointed to have to walk in to an empty restaurant (we wanted a lively boozy brunch after all!). But... More

Our second visit to the restaurant reccomended for many things including its 'boozy brunch'. Unlimited cocktails or wine (from a small selection for two hours) are complimented by a mostly egg influenced entree. Certainly a trendy place, but without a prohibitive air of prevention. Food is great and added to by the general vibe and attentive staff

This is a hot spot so reservations are highly recommended. They have a good brunch deal: bottomless drinks for 2 hours, and the wait staff are relentless in refilling your glass. The service is top notch, too

Very busy restaurant, make sure you call in advance for Sunday brunch and ask for an outside table.The huevos rancheros and guacamole are fantastic. and defiantly you can not bet the bottomless mimosas.

I asked to reserve a table for 12 and the restaurant told me they would increase the price per person by $7 because of the size of the party. This price doesn't even include tip, which I would have understood. Going to cancel my reservation.

This is now the 4th year in a row the wife and I have gone to Agave for the boozy brunch. It is our Labor Day weekend tradition. It remains one of the best values in NYC and a must try if you like to drink. They have the best selection of tequilas in the city. The huevos rancheros and... More

Californians can be VERY picky re Mexican food. Therefore we ate at Agave with our daughter and friends with some trepidation.. Very pleasantly surprised by the quality of food. Good enchiladas and the short rib tacos were enjoyable. Good service....margaritas did the "trick".

I used to live in New York a bazillion years ago and I'd forgotten how much higher the prices are for good, but not exceptional, restaurants, compared to the 'burbs. I paid $33 for a plate of Spanish Eggs Benedict (with Serrano ham) which was very good, even if the ham had a ton of salt in it, and was... More

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
