The service was great and cocktails were wonderful. The table was kind of small and it was pushed against a wall. I don't feel like I had enough room to really enjoy my meal.

My father was in town and we decided to go to Agave. First time for all 5 of us. Excellent service, delicious food and drinks. Extremely loud though and hard to talk. We were in the far right room away from the bar and the birthday parties but it was still very loud. Our only complaint. Thank you for a lovely meal though.

I was taking my husband out on a date and the service and food was great. Our server paid attention to details. Our table was wobbly and he noticed it and fixed the problem. He offered us the specials and made sure we understood the menu when we asked questions. The margaritas are one of a kind.

I had not been to Agave in over 15 years. Our server was slow and never asked I would like another drink or refilled waters at the table. When he did speak with the table, he would interrupt while someone was speaking. I had to ask for salt and pepper. The apps were great but the fried chicken was bland and over cooked.

Agave is one of my favorite restaurants and never disappoints. On this occasion I met a close friend that was in town for business meetings and knew this would be that perfect place for a great meal and awesome service. Our server suggested certain dishes that were popular such as the swordfish. It was as delicious as described! I have a new favorite! I would highly recommend Agave!

As always ambience was great... food was good... only complaint was the roasted corn was apparently pre prepared and not warmed before serving. Other than that the drinks were good and the dessert was luscious!!!
I’ll be back before years end

We had the redfish special with risotto. It was really good. The price was $26. The portion was average size. I would have liked more risotto but I didn’t leave hungry. The service was great. Our waiter was attentive and energetic. The environment was warm and inviting. The Top Shelf Margarita was amazing.

The salsa is average but I have no complaints about it. It’s a complimentary appetizer.

We were also seated upon arrival. The Open Table reservation worked.

You can pretty much expect for the food to be consistent and tasty. I can say the same for the service.

It was all just mediocre - from the margarita to the chips and salsa to smoked salmon tostadas to the barbacoa taco to the service. There just has to be better Mexican food elsewhere in this city.

Every time we have out of town guests we come to Agave....and everyone always loves it. The service is always great and the food is amazing!! If you enjoy southwestern cuisine you have to go there. Make a reservation and join the Agave Club. If you can dine early, the discounts are huge.

My wife & I were visiting Atlanta, and the restaurant was recommended by our B&B host, John Cardona. We were in the mood for Mexican / Southwestern, and Agave had a really braoad menu. Unfortunately, we never made it to the entrees, because the appetizers were so good. We had house made guacamole, a cheese dip, spring rolls and crispy calamari. Everything was terrific - but don't miss the Sangria! It is the BEST sangria we have had. I had the red & my wife had the white. They were both SO good. Sangria is not on the menu, maybe they want to keep it as a well-kept secret? Don't miss it!
