After the reported death of the owner things are a bit out of control, or at the least standards have declined. The restaurant has always been reliable for good food and service, so hopefully they can get their act together again soon.

Enjoyed an evening meal on a quiet Wednesday evening. The Paellea was excellent! Good service. Nice environment.

We visited the Agave restaurant with friends. First we were surprised that they had a one price special menu. It wasn't mentioned when we made the reservation. The service was okay for a busy day. Drinks were watered down . I ordered Prime rib. It was grisley, and thinly sliced. Tough to cut. I probably should have sent it back.... More

Went to dinner with friends for the Prime Rib Special and the Prime Rib was terrific. Ordered a Caesar Salad and that was good too. I have been there several times and last night it seemed as though they used instant potatoes as they were supposed to be garlic mashed, but tasted no garlic and were very watery. On the... More

A very nice, somewhat upscale restaurant adjacent to the Casino. The menu is very diverse with items catering to most tastes. Service was good but not necessarily outstanding. The night we were there the clientele was mostly seniors citizens which that is not surprising since the area consisting of many over 55 communities

This restaurant is outside of the main casino so you don't have all of the noise or machines to compete with. I thought this might just be another casino type buffet but it was much better than I had expected it to be. Lets start with the service, Rene was attentive and polite and we couldn't have asked for better... More

The Agave is within the Desert Diamond Casino, a nice, small manageable casino. The food is very good and the atmosphere is open and welcoming. The prime rib was thick, juicy, tasty, and cooked to perfection. Drinks and desserts are out of the ordinary.

We visited for lunch after church. Everything we sampled was good. We tried five dishes and 3 desserts. All were less than $10 dollars. The sandwich was huge and easily served two people. The salads had a good variety of ingredients. The restaurant is located in a courtyard area between the casino and the theater. It was quite and smoke... More

Our Christmas Dinner was very enjoyable and the serve was excellent. We had 4 entrees to selection from, with choice of salad or soup plus a dessert. All our meals were delicious and plentiful. Wouldn't hesitate returning for another holiday meal.
