This place is a dream come true for anyone with food restrictions. They offer allergy-friendly options (gluten free flatbreads, corn tortilla chips and soft taco shells) and everything I've consumed there I have ABSOLUTELY LOVED! Go hungry because you'll want to order everything on the menu!

Their mixed drinks use a variety of local and fresh ingredients. Dishes are really great for sharing tapas-style, lots of great options. Definitely a good spot for a couples night, too!

Service is excellent, special attention to guest's requests. Love the upper Bar area. This an historic building (old train station). Nicely located in Ithaca, great access and parking. A host indoor and outdoor activities. Did I mention the food and appetizers??? well they are awesome too.

.. we were very fortunate to get a table at an hour's notice. (The reservation indicated that only high-top tables were available but the staff were able to seat us at a regular table.) We enjoyed our favorite items on the menu but the best surprise was the cocktail "The Scorpion" -- highly recommended

My retired friend and I have been meeting for lunch monthly for 4 years. Given that she lives in Auburn and I live in Cortland, we have traveled all over the area searching out great places. There are many wonderful dining experiences in our area. Agava is a keeper! It does not look like much at all from the outside...we... More

My daughter who attends Cornell raves about this restaurant so I took her there last weekend when i was in town. For A Cali girl I was surprised with her enthusiasm. Chips were artificially salty to encourage you to buy more drinks. The guacamole was bland. The flat bread was good but the humus was weak. I had carnitas tacos... More

So I have never ate here, they have free salsa dancing on wednesdays which I have attended and the atmosphere was so fantastic I really recommend - even if you don't know how to salsa dance.
