We had a wonderful lunch. The food was superb and so was our waitress Jessica. She was very friendly and helpful. The selection of choices on the menu were amazing and the ambience of the restaurant was fun. I will definitely be going back.

The food is fresh and fun. The tacos were amazing. Great vibe. The wait time was short even with it being move in day for the schools. The staff were great at offering recommendations. Can't wait to go back.

They have a really good mimosa, and the food was good, especially the cinnamon rolls (my son was disappointed in their size though--not big). We will be returning again for dinner.

I have been to Agava a couple of years ago and loved it. This visit did not disappoint. The food is fresh and delicious. Try the tacos , brussels sprouts w/ chick peas (LOVED) or any of the salads. Chicken wings were a favorite too....More

Description
The AGAVA restaurant concept is rooted in local, farm-to-table cuisine, seasonal menu and a Southwest-Inspired palette. One of the central design and functional elements is a wood-fired oven with eating bar in the main dining space, serving up flatbreads and a range of other fire-roasted cuisine. Our bar is destination of its own; from the unique spirits & cocktails, to an environment and space you have to see for yourself. We feature one of the most unique interior spaces in the central NY region, drawing from both southwestern design elements like “latillas’ as well as local historical features like reclaimed barn wood. We’re based in the old East Ithaca Train Station, commissioned in 1876 by Ezra Cornell.
