Another absolutely amazing dining experience at Agave! The food, the atmosphere, the service = the best!!! Unfortunately, the location for us is a little inconvenient, but it has proven to be worth the effort time after time after time! Love it!

The servers rushed us out of the restaurant. Apparently, they told members of my party we needed to be out by 7 pm. The restaurant was almost empty. I've never received that type of treatment at a restaurant before.

This place is solid. Good food. Lively atmosphere. Decent service. It's usually quite loud so something to consider.

The food and ambiance are always on point and exceptional. Always enjoy! However, the waitress was not up to speed as some of the others that have graciously and attentively done in previous visits to the restaurant. But, we still enjoyed our margaritas, food and our fellowship!

We were a party of 8. I made reservations for 8pm. We were actually early. They allowed the 3 of us to actually sit down which I was excited about because most restaurants do not allow you to do that. We were able to get drinks and appetizers. Agave is great!

Middle of the road seeing how you'all lost power two minutes after we sat down. The chips salsa and margarita where great. Just too bad we never got to taste anything else.

We will make the effort again. Spent too mush time over looking your menu to waste that effort.

Scheduled our party of 4 @ 7pm, we arrived at 6:35pm and was greeted warmly by the hostess. Inquiry was made to ask if we could be seated earlier than scheduled appointment time. Hostess smiled, asked me to wait for a moment and promptly returned to accommodate our request! Our server, I believe was Marcus, we his guy was excellent as well. Scallops, Trout, Lamb meals were DELICIOUS! The only thing better than the food or service.....meeting the General Manager on the way out! Down to earth, genuine, guy! We will be back soon!

Service was great. The food and margaritas were not up to the expected standard. Everybody has a bad day now and then. Agave remains one of my top 3 favorite restaurants in Atlanta. I look forward to my next visit.

Excellent service and food! Loved the fish tacos, hatch chili stew and rib eye special. Guacamole was great, and the salsa was very fresh. Having been to Hatch NM and loving the hatch chili in the foods there, this place is authentic! Grateful for the valet parking too. We will be back! Great wine list too.

This is by far my favorite restaurant in Atlanta. It's lively, and a bit loud, so not the best place for a business meeting. But it's a great place to hang out after work, or on the weekend. They open at 5pm. The margaritas are excellent and the food is great. They change both the food and drink menu occasionally which keeps it interesting. On this evening the service was okay. It was a Friday night, and our server seemed a bit overwhelmed by it all. But still a great experience!

The ambient noise level was 91 decibels. I measured it with a decibel meter. And that with my wife and I not speaking when the measurement was made. That level of noise causes hearing damage. Also the bottle necking of crowds at the front door was definitely a fire safety violation, and the food was really not that good. I regret going, it was not worth the money, and I will not go again.

Overall the food was amazing! I didn’t like how the greeter didn’t tell us there was a hallway with chairs for us to sit in while we wait. My date and I stood in the crowded door entry for about 10 minutes until they called our party. Also, they sat us in the back of restaurant where it was extremely cold. I asked the waitress if she could cut the heater on which was above us, she replied “I’ll see if they can cut the heat up because if we cut the heater on, it’s going to be scorching in here”. Mind you were pretty much outside & it was others who felt the exact same. Again, the food was amazing but customer service is terrible!

Very good. Solid food. Our waiter disappeared a few times but he seemed overwhelmed. My meal was excellent (beef medallions). My wife got the flat iron steak and it was tasty but chewy and not hot. Mixed drinks were great (very good margaritas; also, she had a French 75 and I had a Sazerac...they just need to remember to leave a lemon peel in the glass next time).

We sat at the bar and had the best bartender. He made the best margarita I’ve ever had and told us which entrees were the best. The only negative is the kitchen needs a better vent to keep the smoke out of the dining room.

It was Valentine’s Day and I had a reservation. Once we valeted and check in with the host we were seated immediately. The staff was friendly and attentive. The place felt modern and classic and the ambiance was really cool. The menu specials were enticing but we chose regular menu items. We were allowed to make changes to a couple side items without up-charge or hassle. The margaritas were delicious and so was the calamari appetizer. I ordered seared scallops and my girlfriend had the fried chicken dish. Both were perfect! Do yourself a favor and try the macaroni and cheese! I really can’t wait to return to try more menu items.

Phenomenal experience on Valentines! Food was excellent, exceeding expectations. Service was friendly, informative and quick but not in the least bit rushed. Specialty margaritas were top notch! If there were more stars to give, I would.

Wonderful time! Started off with the fried calamari...a bit basic but their jalapeño jelly gave a special kick...I ordered the rack of lamb and my girlfriend the crawfish pasta...I won’t lie, if I had more stomach I would eat both with no he’s hesitation...they were both amazing
