We have been here several times and the food and drinks are fantastic. There isn't a lot of seating and it gets a little crowded but if you are looking for a fun downtown spot with authentic food and quality drinks, this is a great Hartford staple. The street tacos were our favorite entree, loaded with flavor and we tried... More

Agave is my favorite Mexican restaurant! Their salsa is the best I have ever had and their chips are homemade and come out warm. They make table side guacamole which is also great to share. The menu offers a variety of Mexican items, but my favorite are the chicken adobo tacos and ensalada tostado which is served in a tortilla... More

I ordered enchiladas and house margarita. The food was good but not great. Service was excellent and the place was charming. I would definitely try again

LOVE this place. Perfect Mexican food and the appetizers are the best we have and any where. Their spin on Calamari is so right. The guacamole can be made right at the table and is to tasty. Some might have an issue with the veggies for the guacamole and the bowl being left at the table and exposed to every... More

The entrees here are wonderful. If you like guacamole, then the guacamole that is prepared table side is something you have to try. It can be a little pricey, but I would say it is worth it.

I returned last weekend because I had such a great time on the first visit only to discover that virtually nobody goes here on the weekends. Downtown Hartford in general is a working mans city and tends to empty out on the weekends. Though I felt a little let down the food was still decent. The dining experience becomes very... More

Went here with a party of 10 and we were quickly seated within minutes. We had called here since we were fed up of waiting at Cheesecake Factory...the dinner couldn't have went any better for a party of our size. Everything was efficient and in order from the appetizers to the drinks to our meals concluding with the dessert. I... More
