Had a great time for my 30 birthday – couple of my buddies got us bottle service all night and we reserve our own section and all night we had blast. Great places to have birthday party that's for sure.
I've been to Agenda a few times and it is hit or miss for me. The music can be great but it depends on the nights that you go. It's pretty standard in price and there's nothing special about this place that sets it apart from any other club in downtown. Surprisingly it is still around and has not shut down like every other club that does. I hear that on Sundays they place reggae music and that sounds cool because often San Jose clubs play nothing but hyphy music. It's nice to hear different music for a change. I Believe that there is also a salsa night which sounds fun. If you're looking for a standard club to go to in downtown San Jose, then I would pay a visit. If you're looking for something more upscale, then I would go to Santana Row or Los Gatos.
Best Parties Ever! – Great source of entertainment! Best restaurant in town! Both a family-friend place as well as the 21+ crowd. I love Agenda!
New Year's Eve Special Menu – I've never eaten at Agenda before but heard it was excellent. What my daughter and I ordered was far from it. More like assembly line food than gourmet. To be honest some of the items on our plates were unrecognizable - even the server was unable to tell us what we were being served!!!
Watch out for this place! – Was at this restaurant for the first time on Friday night in group of 20 celebrating a birthday party. Food was served sporadically where some people got to eat while others waited up to 45 minutes. When the food did arrive at least six of the plates were cold and 2 were plain wrong. Service was lousy the server didn't even ask us how everything was or apologize for bad dishes. Worst part and this is absolutely a true story there was an (blank) on the floor next to our table -- completely freaked out all the girls made most of us lose our appetite.
When we brought this to the atttention of our server he promptly took care of it and said he would significantly reduce our bill, but when the bill came nothing was done. Had to speak to the head manager/owner some French guy who said the best he could do was knock off two steaks and his reasoning was because they were served very late in the dinner. Didn't care there was a (blank) crawling on the floor or the dishes came out cold. Didn't even care what his server told us about adjusting the bill.
Since it was my girlfriends friends birthday I didn't push too much, finally guy budged a little bit and knocked 50 off the check. Also tried to give us free passes upstairs... gee thanks for letting us go upstairs to your club for free after we suffered through this dinner at your restaurant.
Be careful out there with so many good places to eat and party don't waste your time, money and health on these guys.
great bar and service – The bar is a great place to ahng out and have a nice meal while watching the hip flow in and out the door. The food is top notch and the service professional and friendly.
Sunday night(reggae)at Agenda is the best!! – I have one thing to say about Agenda on Sunday night, OFF THE HOOK!!! I've been going out downtown since the DB Cooper,PAradise Beach and Oasis days. I must admit Sunday night at Agenda is something else. The atmosphere is beautiful along with the people. If u want to see a very diverse crowd, then Sunday night is your place. The vibe is incredible!! I must admit Dj Nappy has been making that place jump for a long time! If your looking for a good time, check out Reggae Sundays at Agenda!!
must go there, the best yet – great live jazz, great service and even better food. they seem to be changing for better and better.they must be doing something different. the service was exelent and food is always great and prices are reasonable, I have always gone to the restaurant and I tried the club for the first time. 3 levels with 3 djs and only one cover . can't get any better.
I highly recommend trying AGENDA.
great place for dinner & jazz – I have been going to AGENDA for a long time, and love their music on the patio. I took my girlfriend there this past weekend for dinner. she loved everything, specialy the filet and i had the pasta and prawns((FANTASTIC)). we watched the first show, the service and food were awsome, so we decided to stay for the second show. we had a great time. and their new manager is friendly and professional. I highly recommended.
AGENDA, LIVE JAZZ LOVERS AND FOOD LOVERS – AGENDA is the best place for dinner shows. We went there on july/24 for the
LAVAY SMITH show. the food was fantastic and service was great(Considering how packed the place was), after dinner we sat on the patio for the show and had the best time. I highly recommend AGENDA for any and everyone. The food is exelent and the prices are very reasonable.
BOTTOM LINE is, you will be happy you went there.
I just found out that they have live jazz, every friday and saturday night. I know we will go back and you should too.
AGENDA is the place to be friday and saturdays.
