While visiting Lafayette, I was looking for a restaurant to have lunch. My son's friend recommended Agave on Bertrand. We got there a few minutes after they opened at 11 and were greeted by several servers. Our server was attentive and helpful with reviewing the menu. The tri-colored chips and salsa were a pleasant surprise. The salsa had a slight kick and great texture. We ordered the seafood quesadilla, a combination of grilled shrimp and crawfish and cheese on a large folded tortilla served with sour cream, pica de gallo, and guacamole. It was average at best and slim in ingredients for $9.95. By the time we left, several more tables were filled; however, the place did not appear to have a large lunch crowd. Perhaps I am spoiled to all of the great food in New Orleans and the surrounding area, that Agave just seemed average to me.

Jetlag and warm, I was so pleased with the service. Our waiter, Denver, was extraordinary. It might not have been the best food I ever had in a restaurant, but it was certainly the best service ever! The food was good.

Agave downtown has great food. I absolutely love the seafood relleno! They have live music for dinner. It's a party atmosphere, not a place for a quiet, intimate dinner!

I went to Agave for lunch and was very disappointed. The food I received was not that tasty, and the service was bad. It took a pretty good amount of time to get our food, even though the restaurant wasn't packed.

As to the decor and overall restaurant... it wasn't anything special, but not bad. The location however, was not as desireable as I had hoped the food would be.

To end it all, the waitress actually rounded my bill upward to the next dollar amount, and just assumed she was keeping the change, in addition to any tip. (That is happening more and more, not just at this restaurant.)

Recommendation... Since this was only a single visit, I'd say they may be worth another try. I doubt I will try them anytime soon though.
