This was a return dining experience after the restaurant opened originally. The location, ambiance and custom margaritas were excellent. The service and food left a lot to be desired. The service was very slow and inconsistent. We placed our order for drinks immediately and waited over 20 minutes to get them delivered. The food was bland at best. It was really disappointing as it was so much better years ago. So many better choices in the ATL to pick from.

Exceptionally good food. Seafood dishes are my Fave. It is art on a plate by presentation &flavor! True culinary talent. We ate there 3 nights in a row because it was so good. We invited guests from Buckhead to meet us there &they loved it. It's got to be great to pull them out of Buckhead. We are in ATL visiting relatives &eat there every chance we get.

Service was fast and excellent and the food was delicious. We ordered grilled street corn, the scallop and lamb dinner entrees and had the peanut butter dessert. Everything was great and food came out fast! Our server, Tyler was awesome and always diligent. We will definitely go back and try their other food!

Exceptionally good with wide variety of menu options. Always enjoy poblano soup, street corn, fried lobster tail, swordfish and seared tuna. Keylime pie is superb. Chocolate mousse phenomenal. Excellent top shelf margaritas.

We love Agave! The food is always great! The environment is nice! It's affordable! We just can't go wrong going there. We live 60 miles east of Atlanta so it's super easy for us to get to. It's always a pleasure eating there.

So noisy it was impossible to have a conversation. Too many packed into a small space. Service was, at best, tolerable. Food very good, but not worth hassle.

The noise level is our main complaint and we discussed with manager. We were seated next to a table of as many as 20 people who were on a "margarita crawl" and very noisy - singing, using inappropriate language and loud. It was not an nice evening with friends and we noted that families with small children were particularly upset. The food was OK - my wife's fish tacos were dry with very little fish and the avocado salad was very pedestrian. Most couples at our table were not thrilled with their food choices and the noise level made the evening (which we had booked to visit the nearby Cemetery for an event), start our rather poorly. We will not be back.

The food is always my favorite in Atlanta. The original flavors and freshness of everything prepared is always Outstanding. You must try the salsa, by far the freshest and best you will ever have. I recommend the Cayenne Fried Chicken for the first timers along with calamari for an appetizer! You can never go wrong here for great food and the best value in Atlanta hands down!

We were seated in a timely manner. No one came to the table for about 10 minutes. We were given water and salsa. We waited another 10 minutes before someone asked if we wanted something other than water to drink. We ordered an appetizer and a cocktail. We finished the appetizer and salsa before our waiter finally showed up to take our order. My husband asked if they had specials. He responded, “yes let me get them.” He left and came back with one sheet of paper with the specials. Because we had to share the paper, he asked if we needed more time. The gall was striking. We asked him for more salsa and eventually had to get someone else’s server to get it for us because he never came back. Because we were so dissatisfied with the, the whole meal was average at best.
It was late and we were simply too tired to expend any energy speaking to anyone about the really bad dining experience we had 05/05/19 at Agave.

I use to patronize Agave's quite regular and hadn't been in quite sometime; just wasn't as pleased with my meal or drinks maybe it was just an off evening. However, I was quite disappointed.

The food was great. We decided to just do appetizers. I had the liberty tail and Mexican corn. My friend had the cheese dip, corn and Brussels sprouts.

The noise level in the dining room/bar area was so loud since there is an open kitchen that I asked if I could move my table. They immediately agreed and quickly moved me. My waitress was not very attentive however. We didn’t have menus, had missing silverware and she forgot about our drink orders. But overall, it was still a nice place and I will go again.
