It promises that Agave slow roasts the meat for melt in your mouth tenderness and flavor. Being better means our signature guacamole is made right at your tableside and that your desserts will be baked from scratch.
In our lounge, the fiesta continues as our guests are served specialty margaritas, crafted cocktails , Wine Spectator award-winning wines and a plentiful selection of beers. Happy Hour is celebrated daily from 4pm-6pm with 1/2 price drinks and appetizer specials and on select evenings Agave offers live music.

We really enjoyed our dining at Agave. Our waitress Jo was absolutely phenomenal. The food was to die for. I particularly enjoyed the freshly made guacamole and the chicken fajitas. My family and I will definitely return to this restaurant, on our next trip.

So much good food on that special Sizzle menu! I rolled out of there in a Thanksgiving Day level stupor. Glad we ate early. And the musical combo was a perfect touch. Also 1/2 price drinks and fresh Guacamole.

Really quite a treat.

We made a reservation, and were seated right away. The restaurant fills up quickly. The service, from a relatively new server was outstanding! Our food was awesome. Portions were very generous and we had to take some of our meal home. The paella, cheese enchiladas and quesidilla were very tasty. We also did the guacamole at the table and it was also very tasty. Would highly recommend.

Girls Night Out. Only 2 of the 6 of us been to Agave before. We went for drinks and appetizer. Time we all arrived, it was still happy hour. We had the choice of ordering from happy hour menu, early bird dining, or regular menu. The option was great since some of us wanted happy food only. Others Opted for either early bird menu or the regular menu. Early dining was a great deal: a margarita, soup or salad, entree and dessert for $25.

There were many specialty drinks to choose from. So in addition to the margarita that came with the early dining, we all had a couple of others so we could taste all the different options. Food were delicious and big portions (except the guacamole).

All the ladies said they would come back again with the husbands. Live music from Thursday - Saturday.

High end Mexican food - a rarity around here and a pleasurable treat. If you're a tequila fan, there is quite a collection. The tableside guacamole is fantastic. We always ask for a booth with a kitchen view for a fun behind the scenes look (and I REALLY trust kitchen that lets patrons view their operation).

It's not exactly cheap, but it's worth it (and it's certainly not expensive for Naples).

Everything went extremely well, the food was delicious and the waitress were awesome. The only exception was that when we first walked in, the placed was empty and I stayed with my family waiting for about 2 minutes while the lady who sitted us came to greed. At that point I asked her if we were supposed to sit ourselves and she immediately closed her faced and negatively said “no”.

We almost left, but I decided to give an opportunity and after that everything was as expected.

Very knowledgeable and helpful with our food allergies. Food was very good. However, were seated in an area that didn’t look like it was being used away from the main dining areas and the restaurant was not full. The ambiance wasn’t great for that reason but otherwise the meal was good and service was great.

We always love the food and service at Agave. However this time the service was poor. It really wasn’t very busy and it took a very long time to get our drinks. We are always greeted with a basket of chips and salsa. Had to ask for them this time as the waiter left quickly after presenting our drinks. We invited another couple with us to introduce them to the restaurant. Too bad they had to experience this. Waiter just not attentive to our table.

Just as we arrive there seemed to be a large number of parties seated...Our waiter was strung out across three rooms and way too many tables. Forty five minutes later I approached the Manager and she was right on the issue.
From then all everything went fine...just our bad luck in the middle of "Season" here in Naples....

As it was our first time there, we tried to order many items to try out. About half were good and the rest wouldn’t be reordered. Enchilada soup very tomato tasting, pork taco had some salad topping that ruined the flavor and chipotle sauce tasted much like a thousand island dressing. Good made at table guacamole and salsa and paella mixta was great. Nice looking place and great service.
