3rd time we've been in the last 6 weeks. Always a great experience. Food was awesome! Server wasn't as good as the last 2 we had but was decent. The craw fish linguine was amazing.

We have been coming here for years when we have business in Atlanta. It's such a great place. The menu is unique and there are enough options for all to consider. Love the margaritas! It does get loud in there and is usually well packed.

The restaurant had wobbly tables & ours was soaking wet, we had to wipe the chair down before sitting down as it looked like water had been spilled everywhere. For the prices & style, some better tables & maybe tablecloths might help elevate agave to the warm cozy date spot it used to be.

We made a reservation days in advance and when we arrived, we stood at the door for a while, with other waiting patrons. When we were finally seated at a table we noticed there were open tables across the entire restaurant. The server placed what appeared to be a dirty glass on the table. When I asked for a new clean one, he insisted that it was just scratched. At any other restaurant, they would have been happy to remove the glass and bring a new one to the customers satisfaction and liking. Other than the initial wait, and the dirty glass, everything was good. The value was spot on and the food/drinks were good.

Everyone I introduce to Agave falls in love with the food and service. Keep the VIP (5p-6p) as added incentive.

I am a regular customer and definitely love Agave. I invited a group of 8 to celebrate a birthday. We were not pleased with the lobster tails they were soft, wet and a little under cooked. I ordered the pork chop for my entree and it was overcooked and dry.

Overall the service was great everyone else seem to enjoy their food.

Thanks !

⭐The Glows [Pros]
1. I love greens with an apple cider vinegar pot liquor. Reminds me of my own greens.
2. The service is very fast.
3. The scallops were PERFECT!
4. Strong drinks. (Which could be a con for some people.) I was done after 1 drink.
5. The keylime pie was smooth, tart, rich, & creamy. Amazing!
⭐The Grows [Cons]
1. The salmon tostados isnt worth the price and didn't have anything special about it. I would not recommend them at all.
2. It's almost too dark for me in the restaurant.
3. The corn is too oily. I dislike oil foods. Watch your clothes!
4. High noise level in the bar area. If you want a quiet or romantic dinner, ask to sit in the 2nd or 3rd dining area.

Always ask for Malcolm as your server. He is attentive, friendly and patiently took photos of our group.

Oh, the lamb chops are my favorite along with a spicy margarita.

Very busy for a Monday night. Service was a little slow between visits ... apps, dinner, desert...but very friendly and meal temps never compromised. It is a small kitchen so that will slow things, but then again...feels cooked to order. The chefs HUSTLE! We sat up above the grill and that left our clothes a bit pungent. Overall this is a superb restaurant and every dish we had was excellent .... and the champagne toast for our 24th was a nice touch.

Food was exceptionally good, the key lime pie was AWESOME!!! We try the key lime pie at most places we dine at and their pie is the best we have ever had! Agave was recommended to us by a Peachtree tour guide named Steve

This was a regular date night spot for my husband and I for more than 10 years. Since he passed away in November I never thought I would return. My son came to town this Christmas and insisted we go. I had my hubby's favorite meal (Trout) and not only did it bring back memories, but the meal was terrific as usual.

We spent the day at Zoo Atlanta and then went here for dinner. I almost decided to go elsewhere because it was not in the best neighborhood. Howevere, it was completely safe. The food was really good and the service was eqaully good.
