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.

Considering that this restaurant is in a Casino, I was doubtful about the food. However, the service was amazing and the food was some of the best ever. I would highly recommend and I will definitely go back.

At a recent meal at the Agave with a group of six, we waited 45 minutes for our wine and another 45 minutes for our entrees (no appetizers or salads). When we asked the server several times about the delay, she replied that the bartender had sprained her ankle; she had no reason for the delay in our entrees. Although... More

We used to think this was the best restaurant around. Not anymore. The amount of the fish served was ridiculously small. We mentioned this to the waitstaff and she just shrugged and said that the chef had reduced the size by an ounce. Oddly, there is only one main meal chicken dish on the menu and it's a pasta that...
