I went to Agave for the first time for my birthday in 2020. We’ve been going on most special occasions every change we get. The ambiance is amazing. The food is always great and the service exceptional. My favorite dish is the fried lobster tails with two sides(It’s not on the menu but you can still order it). You can go here on a dinner night or special occasion, it’s perfect for both. I love it here!

The temperature of the food was not consistent as previous experience. The calamari was not cooked to perfection as previous experience. Service was good.

the food is never disappointing. The wait-staffer, Heather, was outstanding. We ate in the middle dining room, where the fireplace is located. PLEASE move the table away from in front of the fireplace so the whole room can enjoy the ambiance and beauty of the fire burning. The table directly in front covers up the whole "look" and it takes away from the comfort and style of the dining area.
We always enjoy the food and service and plan to return soon.

Food was great, service was terrible. Saw our waitress when she took our order and didn't see her again until she brought the check. We had to flag other people down for refills, etc.

Agave was a fun experience! Food items were not your average ones. The shrimp rolls were delicious and the house Margarita was amazing!
Our server was friendly, helpful and welcoming, as it was our first time there.
We got to sit in front of the fireplace on a chilly day--an added bonus!

Agave continues to be one of our favorites. We’ve been going here for over ten years and it is a delight to know that the service, food, and ambiance continues to impress. The fried chicken, spicy pork chops, and fish tacos were outstanding. Our drinks were fabulous and the waitstaff was on top of it. Thanks for being such a fabulous place to eat, drink, and enjoy time with people.

Fantastic menu. Every dish was incredibly flavorful. Portions are generous. You will not leave hungry--and likely with some for later. Service was friendly and made sure we were taken care of.

Our 22nd wedding anniversary and it was our third time going to Agave on our anniversary. We drive from Alabama to pick up our family flying in from West Coast so we get to eat before we pick them up. They usually arrive around 8-9pm. We really enjoy the food and ambiance at Agave. We send our friends to Agave too.

Nice spot. They offer 2 sides- a bar side and fireplace side. We originally were seated in the bar side and it was too noisy so we requested to be moved to the fireplace side. We wanted a quite intimate setting. I went due to a pic online but they no longer had it on the menu. It was for a limited time only. I ordered a NY strip and a side lobster tail with sides. Food was good. I had a smoked tequila cocktail. My waitress was attentive. Valet service offered- free- but come with a tip. Overall a good experience.

My wife and I use to come here many times several years ago and was always great.
So my wife and I recommend to meet with several friends for a small Christmas gathering of 5 people. We were sooooo disapointed when we arrived and were seated in an area so nasty. There was something so sticky on the floor and standing joints between the tiles. To add insult the nasty area. They sat 5 adults at 2 very small tables in a nasty corner. None of the food described on the menu was served to our table. The spring rolls had VERY little ingredients in them, they were so greasy.
I had 4 margaritas and not one would I nor anyone else consider a good one.
This restaurant is suppose to be know for awesome margaritas and good.
That was the way we use to remember it.
So sad to revisit Agava and find it in this horrible situation.
AND THERE IS NO WAY SOMEONE CAN CONVINCE ME IT'S DUE TO COVID.
There is No excuse for what we endured last night. A lot of waisted time and money.

Food was ok. It has great reviews, which is why I went but the food was mediocre to me. My oldest son said the same. My youngest had the salman and said it was delicious. Just my opinion, but I eat out a lot. And it was just ok for me. To each his own.

Delicious food that took me back to my childhood in the Southwest. Lots of options to accommodate different food preferences ( eg vegetarian, allergies) and the waiter was flexible about changing side dishes to help with that. Will be back!
