    Made it seem that the place was going to be packed because I had to put a credit card down for the reservation and they had a 5 minute grace period. Bizarre. It was dead for lunch. 4 tables of old people. B rated food. Big isn’t always better. Wife had a crappy margarita. Food runner spilled fajita oil all over the table and stained my sports-coat that I had to take directly to the dry cleaner on the way home from the underwhelming valentine’s lunch. Bar may be nice, but I don’t drink. Don’t need to go back.

    Dry, store bought corn and flour tortillas, unseasoned, generic food. Unattractive presentation, they do not even have garnish on the plate. The $16 chicken quesadilla looked worse than a kids meal at most restaurants. You have to pay for chips and salsa and even though we paid, we got a basket of chip crumbs. The service is slow and pretty uncaring, they brought canned beer and no glasses.

    Love this restaurant, its service and its food. We eat there 2-3 times a month. We will continue to go but you need to work on the acoustics and sound absorption-it’s very noisy!

    Loud. Several empty tables. Slower service than expected for the capacity. Drinks came out 30 seconds before our entrees. This was our second time. Other places in the Annapolis area with better service for the value.

    Super good food and drinks, if a bit overpriced. Best quesadilla I’ve ever had. The ambience is so cute — we sat at a corner booth with cozy throw pillows. Perfect for a casual gathering with an elevated meal.

    The entrees were tasty but somewhat over priced. Waaaaay toooo noisy for dining. We felt as though we were in a church hall! Also, lighting too bright for Friday night dinner. Cute place but Agave needs to work on a few things… noise level, lighting and perhaps a few entrees that are more in the $17-22 range! Thank you!

    The place was packed and loud. The drinks were on the expensive side but excellent. Unfortunately the food did not impress. My buddy and I had the Mole Enchilada - we both found it very bland. My wife had the fish tacos. It came with fried puffy taco shell. Looked cool but she would have preferred your basic flour tortilla.

    This our 4th visit to Agave. The design is beautiful, the food is very good. The last few visits, service has been incredibly slow and choppy. Last night was exceptionally bad. The line to be seated was out the door, with no communication. The food service took 30-45 mins and there was a bare number of staff. Disappointing for. agreat location. Where in the manager? Hire more staff and it could be great.

    Agave is a superb and welcome addition to the restaurant scene in Annapolis. Excellent cuisine and a wonderful ambience. Right along side that is a revulsion for the new policy requiring that diners put down a credit card when making a reservation! If for some reason you don't show OR you don't cancel 12 hours out, your card is charged $25 for every person you reserved for. Or if you show up with less people than you reserved for, your card is charged $25 for every "missing" guest. This is complete lunacy, policing your guests. I get text and email reminders of every reservation made through Open Table. Sometimes life circumstances and even emergencies cause someone not to show. So now I would get penalized for that. After I recommended Agave to relatives and then friends, none of them would make a reservation because of this policy. And now I will not either. I'll walk down the street in either direction and eat there.

    We were looking forward to dinner at Agave. Unfortunately, it didn’t live up to expectations. The space is visually nice but this has to be one of the loudest restaurants we’ve ever been to. We literally had to shout across our table to be heard. The drinks were excellent, but the food didn’t exceed standard Mexican fare except in price, two fish tacos plates at $27? Might be a good venue for happy hour…..

    Enjoyed the original margarita. I had fish tacos that were good. Would have enjoyed a soft taco shell rather than a hard one but am sure that could be ordered. Ambience is lovely, great bar space.

    Atmosphere - very nice, pretty, and comfortable. Great bar, comfortable seating, lighting muted but plenty enough to see the menu. Food - expensive and not worth the price. Sorry to say. I had the chicken tortilla soup and chopped salad with shrimp, my husband had the soup and surf and turf burrito. The soup was so-so and my salad was HUGE and not really chopped -- tons of iceburg lettuce and all the vegies were at the bottom. Service - our server was attentive at first, then as the restaurant filled up she forgot about us. She also charged us for a drink we didn't order but our time was too valuable to have it removed so we paid it. Almost $200 for Mexican food. No. Next time, drinks and appetizers.

    Honestly, I wanted to love this place so much. The vibe and atmosphere is phenomenal. Their drinks are also amazing. However, the food was mediocre at best. I got the Molé enchiladas. Which, by the way, you are not able to make any changes to as they are pre-rolled. No big deal. But, upon my food arriving, the rice was bland, and honestly seemed like some you could get out of a uncle Ben’s microwave rice bag. Bay sauce itself had an almost peanutty taste to it. It did not taste at all like traditional Molay sauce. Additionally, the tortillas used for the enchiladas were basically soggy and wet. Would I go back? For drinks, and maybe an appetizer, yes. But for a full meal, absolutely not. The bar is super cute though, and would be a great place to grab a drink.

    We made a reservation...all the rules that came with it as well as the need for a deposit was off putting. However the place was very nice inside. The hostess and servers were very friendly and helpful. The food is a bit pricey but all very good! There are quite a few items on the menu we hope to go back and try. The bench seat side of the table where we sat was accented with pillows which made the seating very comfy!

    Food and drinks were delicious. I had the garlic pepper shrimp which was served with two skewers of good sized shrimp (about 10 total). Waitress was friendly, attentive, and was very knowledgeable about the food and drink menu. I highly recommend the Elderflower drink. Will definitely be back.

    Mediocre food. So far from good Mexican cuisine it is hard to put into words. And terribly overpriced. It was a very disappointing visit. Annapolis has much better Latin food.

    Food was good, but not great. Soup was cold. Server said that the restaurant does not split check based upon what people at the table ordered. Servers have handheld devices for taking orders and giving customers checks. I’ve been to other restaurants that have these handheld devices and they were able to split check. In addition, every restaurant I’ve been to except this one was able to split the check based upon what people ordered at the table.
