I went there with friends on Tuesday for special offer. Buy one main and get the second one free is really valuable. Food is pretty and tasty, very nice.

More "café style" than "intimate dining" but definitely worth taking your partner to visit. Great food, excellent service and overall a memorable experience.

On my third visit we decided on just dessert and coffee and took some friends who have never been. Well the service and desserts were just as outstanding as always, just love this place and we will be back.

Agenda is a quality place - terrific food, excellent service (attentive and friendly), reasonably priced and good atmosphere. I was visiting Hamilton and I am not surprised that the restaurant was popular - deservedly so. High recommended.

Kim is lovely. Great and friendly service. Interested and caring. Any lack of knowledge easily made up by great attitude. Even on a dismal Sunday night. Reliable. Will most certainly come again. Standard fare but it's done well.

Thanks Alex for the kind words. Kim will continue to learn about the wines, so make sure you test her next time you come in, it's a big list to learn. More

2 of us ordered entrees as mains. No hassles! Beautiful presentation of all meals and taste was just as good. Desserts scummy - peanut lava cake is a keeper!

Hi GeoffGenner. Thanks for the review, I am very happy you enjoyed yourself. The Lava cake wont be going anywhere. Think we would have riots if we took it away from our regulars. More
