We love Agave. It’s been several years since I’ve been (don’t live in the city anymore), but it was just as delicious and fresh as I remembered. It was my first time bringing my kids to Agave and I was so pleased with the kids menu. The margaritas are amazing. The beef medallions have such a great flavor and were cooked perfectly. It didn’t seem as upbeat as I remembered, maybe because it was just a Wednesday, but the staff was super low energy and that was pretty palpable. I remember the vibe being vibrant and bustling, and yesterday it just felt kind of sleepy and low key. Not a big deal at all, just a difference I noticed. We’ll definitely be back again, and I would recommend it to anyone!

Server spilled a drink on one of our group. Pushed the ice and cocktail onto the floor and sent someone else to clean it up. Didn’t give much care to the lady who got her cocktail in her lap.

Food was meh. Not much seasoning.

The room we were in is by the parking lot. All through dinner we had car headlights right in our face trying to back up over a speed bump. Noisy and unsettling.

Great atmosphere. Our waiter, Anderson was phenomenal. Great service, great attitude. We had the meatballs for an appetizer and it was delicious. Our main plates were just a tad bit bland but not to the point that they weren’t enjoyable.
Parking was good because of the complimentary valet. Would still come back to try more things.

The food and service were excellent as always. Loved the meatballs, strip steak, medallions, lamb, pasta dish, margaritas! Disappointed that the temperature in the building was set at 79 on a very hot day, and it was hot and muggy inside with a full house of customers making it even hotter. We had never sweat so much in a restaurant, especially while eating hot spicy foods that make you sweat even more. Very uncomfortable dining. We will come back only in the cooler weather times of the year.

Our first time here, early on a Saturday evening for dinner. Food and service were outstanding; I had the redfish (chef’s special) and hubby had the stuffed trout. Only complaint was noise level, mostly due to a large party seated next to us.

The place has gone way down hill. Was like eating in a dungeon. Needs some major upkeep. Also, the margaritas used to be very good but tasted off. I don’t be back.

I have eaten at Agave several times over the past several years. Each time has been enjoyable and satisfying. This is one place that I will return to when i am in the Atlanta area. Food and service are great!

Agave is my "go-to" place when I have friends and family visiting, or when I just want to grab a good meal alone. Even though the service left much to be desired this time, I will still continue to dine there (I just will not sit in this particular Server's section again)

We love Agave. The noise was crazy high and I felt like I had to yell to be heard.

I love there good but it seemed less than before.
The portions we way small and the food seemed in seasoned. Very weird.

I’ve waited a long time to come here and so sad that the food did not meet expectations for my entire party. Even the kids steak came out medium when we asked for medium well (it was for a 3 year old). We had a gluten-free order to come out on flour tortillas. They remade it but the flour version of the dish had more ingredients on it. So sad that I’ve waited all this time to go only for our party to be more excited about the ice cream afterwards.

Agave is such a solid date night spot. Their food is always good, service is always attentive and kind, and their cocktails are just lovely. I had their spicy jalapeño margarita and it was SO good.

The Scallops were delicious. Most restaraunts bring you three big ones. Agave serves five with rhe meal. Very satisfying and overall I was full but not stuffed. The restaraunt had great ambience and the noise level was low. They have a great selection of Tequilla and Margaritas. The waitress knew the menu and was very friendly. She took the time to find out what was in the Watermelon Margarita since im watching my refined sugar intake.
Overall great experience I highly recommend!

We were really looking forward to our meal at Agave since we've been eating there ever since it first opened, but the post-pandemic Agave isn't nearly as good as it used to be. I received tiny lamb chops and fewer of them. My husband was served soggy fish tacos with bland/inedible beans. Not sure if it was am off night or the new normal, but definitely not the Agave we once loved. 😪

It took us a while to get seated. Once we were at our table, our waiter was great at making sure we were attended to promptly. The drinks, chips and salsa, and food were all good. They had a separate vegetarian menu, which I appreciated, but I wish it had been presented as a part of their regular menu, without having to ask about vegetarian options.
