It guarantees that we are fire roasting vegetables every morning for our house made salsa. It specifies that we will use 100% black Angus beef, antibiotic free chicken, and wild caught shrimp and fish. 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.
Agave has three private dining areas, all with state-of-the-art audio/visual capabilities.

Given a nice tour by hostess when being seated. Best cheese enchiladas ever. Good selection of tequila and mezcal. Live duo played good music.

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.

Agave never disappoints. This time we were there early and sat in the Happy Hour section. Drinks were great as was the food. We will always return. Last year we had lunch there but this time only opens at four. It’s s drive for us but we’ll worth it!!

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.

Had dinner there for the fifth time. The food and service were excellent as usual. The menu is diverse and offers many good choices. One in our group had never really dined in a Mexican restaurant and he felt the food he had was one of the best meals he had all season.

I really enjoyed this restaurant. My daughter and I were in Naples for a wedding and I happen to find Agave on yelp. The staff was very friendly, and prompt. The steak tacos with the fried cheese was outstanding, and the margaritas where delirious. If I am ever in Naples again, I will be back for sure. I would definitely recommend Agave to a friend.

Service was slow -= and inattentive. Did not follow up to ask if I wanted a second glass of wine. I liked my chicken enchiladas....my husband who is gluten free - left feeling hungry after eating the cauliflower tacos. Tableside guacamole is nice, tasty - but kind of skimpy for the price. Overall - so so.

The server was very attentive and the chips and salsa kept coming. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner of guacamole, steak fajitas and chicken enchiladas. The margaritas were large and delicious. Portions were generous , which kept us from trying their deserts. This restaurant is moderately priced but the experience is above that. Our only complaint was that the AC level was set too cold. The noise level was just reflective of happy diner chatter. We will definitely return.

Unfortunately we were looking forward to returning to eat at Agave. Our drinks were really good and the bartender very personable. Our reservation honored but the food was horrible. We had the chili relliano, one with cheese, the other with chicken. There was no chicken in mine, and one piece in my husbands. On top of that it was served with white rice, this is a Mexican restaurant, come on! Get with the program and serve food with a Mexican flair. We will not return.

it's always great to dine at Agave. The ambiance is excellent; the service is attentive, pleasant, and very helpful. And the food - while I'm not an expert on Mexican cuisine - is really wonderful. The presentation is great. This is actually our new favorite Naples restaurant. (Of course, the fact that it is only about a 5 minute drive for us also helps!)
