We had been seated for 25 minutes before our server took our order. It was an hour before we started eating. Our reservation was 8:45p so as you might imagine, we were good and ready to leave by the time our food showed up at 9:52p. I’m hoping it was just a bad night. The food was good.
We waited 2 hours for our food, unfriendly waiter (Chris?) - made to feel as we were bothering him, had to call him over several times to get drinks and just to get our orders put in.
Wonderful food! The restaurant was hopping, but our server was on top of her game. Definitely will be back.
Always a good time at Agave Great food, drinks and people. Staff is awesome !
Always a great experience. One of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta!
Loved it! Food is amazing as always. This week they had a $19 three course dinner to celebrate their 19th anniversary!
Wonderful service and ambience as usual
Rarely I am disappointed at Agave! This past visit was one of those times. I ordered the usual Buttermilk chicken. The street corn and mashed potatoes were great but the small piece of chicken that was served was thin, overcooked and dried out. Eating this chicken was like eating leather. The reason I did not send it back is I hear of too many stories of food being tampered with if a patron complains.
We like Agave but we had a terrible experience Sunday night. There was a table of very rowdy guests and management did nothing to quiet them. We were so uncomfortable that we moved to a less desirable table. We spoke to the manager as we were leaving and he said he was helpless to influence his guests.
Agave, is our favorite restaurant. Everything about it is perfect. Service is wonderful and the food is always good and it is plated beautifully. You can't go wrong with Agave!
Food was great...drinks were just right! Love coming here to hang out at the bar w/Lisa and then get to eat great food! My kind of place!
It was my birthday dinner celebrated with my parents and 2 sisters. Food was great as usual and good service. Couldn’t ask for any better.
My family is in town from the West Coast and I was excited to enjoy a meal with them at one of my favorite spots in town. Unfortunately the restaurant was exceptionally loud (louder than its ever been in all of my other visits) - to the point where we could not hear anything the other person was saying. Having been seated next to the kitchen - we had that noise on top of the servers and some pretty loud tables. This sadly made for a kind of blah experience. Our server was also very busy and slow to greet us/get us going. Kind of bummed my family didn’t have the experience I have had here many a time before.
Ordered the battered fish, but it came out soggy and a bit mushy! But our party also ordered two different steak dinners (sirloin and $19 special) and both were described as delicious and perfectly prepared. Most dishes are prepared with some type of pepper, so if you don't like medium to warm spiced meals your choices on the menu may be limited. I prefer spicy so I enjoyed everything I tried, including the complimentary chips it's a busy place so reservations are a must!
Love agave always. Tim and his team are wonderful.
Great as always. Food was delicious. Service was very good
Awesome service! Delicious food!
We had a birthday celebration at Agave. The food was just OK. The noise level, though, was bad. it was difficult to carry on a conversation.
I don’t know if I just came on an off night. Had reservation, still waited 20 mins. Sat in middle room, HOT! Only one fan working. Had to return dinner, pork undercooked. Then after waiting for 6cars to be pulled, a lady walked up and he got her car first!
The food was stellar, the service passable but the restaurant was busy and very loud. But the food made up for the mediocre service and loudness.
The man who helped us was friendly, knowledgeable, and proud of the food choices. He was conversational and knew the background behind the food. We certainly appreciate that kind of service!
Tonight they were celebrating their 19th year in business. This is my neighborhood gem. I eat here at least once a month. Everything is delicious and the cocktails are spot on and not a bank breaker.
The service can be a bit slow and it's loud but the food and drinks are great! I always enjoy it.
Waste of my time and money. My salmon was salty. The place was small definitely not a place for small children. I was better off taking my family to IHOP.
10/10 Always. This place never disappoints. My husband and I have been going here for over 10 years. Excellent food and drinks.
The meals are always five star as far as taste. The Southwestern Shrimp & Poblano Spring Rolls appetizer is fabulous. The salsa was probably the freshest and most delicious salsa I have had at any restaurant.
We enjoyed the $19 Three Course Meal which was excellent. A nice variety of meals to choose from. Serving sizes were perfect. This was definitely a great way to sample some of the different menu items at a reduced price. Will definitely do again.
We had a wonderful meal with excellent service on the patio. The trout is the best in the city. I substituted Serrano tomato grits for the rice and it was fantastic. The tomatillo sauce is so flavorful and the margaritas are excellent. We tried a spicy jalapeño and skinny. Just a fantastic dinner. Did I mention the service ?
Our meals were served simultaneously and the waiter anticipated everything we needed. Just love this place.
Excellent food, Great Margaritas and Nice ambiance..
Fantastic! Been going here for years. Best Southwestern cuisine in Atlanta. Best margaritas. Service was superb — shoutout to Kayla! The only knock, and I mean ONLY, is the noise level. I wish the noise could be lowered by several levels to make conversation easier. Frequent large parties create even more noise. Okay, so I’m over 50. I get that. But the place could be so much more romantic if you could actually converse with your partner without shouting. I know a sound engineer who could help with dampening the sound if Jack is interested.
Always great in every way!
Always great margaritas, food and service and we are long time customers and really appreciate the restaurant.
I absolutely loved Agave! The only complaint would be the noise level, but that's just what you get in a brick walled building. The service was absolutely amazing from the moment we walked in the door. We were about 10 minutes late for our reservation, which some places get mad about, but the host was very courteous and didn't even mention it. We were seated in the lofted area and there were no other parties, so it felt very private - perfect for a date night! Our appetizer was out in 5 minutes, then the entrees came about 5 minutes after we were done with the appetizer. Everything was prompt and perfectly timed. The food was phenomenal and cooked perfectly. I had the swordfish and substituted creamed corn for the mashed potatoes, which I highly recommend. The corn is amazing. My partner had the surf and turf special, which was also delicious. The fried lobster tail was great, but we thought the breading and deep frying made it a little too heavy. We had to split it because he couldn't finish it on his own due to how rich it was. We had the key lime pie for dessert, which was not too sweet as some key lime pies can be. It was the perfect balance of sweet and tart served with the best whipped cream ever. I will definitely come back and have already recommended to many friends!
Always the best. Calamari was cold and chewy but the rest of the food and service made up for it.
We usually love coming here. The food is outstanding and the key lime pie, well, there’s none better. Our waitress was fine. However, we had to wait almost 40 minutes for our reservation and the noise level was sooooooo loud that we could hardly hear each other at a table for two. A little disappointing.
Went on a Friday night, even with reservations it took an additional 20 minutes to seat us. They sat us by the door and the waitress didn't come to our table for 15 minutes after we were seated. They were extremely busy and crowded, we had to flag our waitress down several times to get our drinks, a spoon for the beef stew...it was ridiculous. Probably won't go back.
WE LOVED Agave!!! The margarita's were the best of the best! The food was hot, fresh and delicious!!! WE will be back!!!!!
Great place..remember itnin 2001 when it was not that popular...Great to see a place last and prosper
