We stayed at the Homewood Suites and had a 2 minute walk to brunch in the morning on Sunday. The downside was that they don't open until 11, but it was worth the wait. It was quiet, and for a while we were the only ones in there. The breakfast menu was limited and it was kind of hard to... More

Went for lunch, not too busy at 11:30 but packed by 12. The salsa and guacamole were good. I had three soft tacos, fish, chicken and chorizo. I didn't care for how wet and sloppy the chicken was, and the flavor if the chorizo was just too bold. The fish one seemed spot on. Decent Mexican, nothing extraordinary.

Everything was so delicious! Our only problem was that the servings were so large we had more food than we knew what to do with (not a bad problem to have). The staff was friendly and service was fast.

If you are looking for authentic Mexican restaurant look elswhere. The food is ok but could've been better. The Mojito would've been better if some sort of effort was put into it. The service was terrible. The waitress was rarely seen, had an empty cup for about 15 minutes. Overall my experience was not the best here. There are way... More

We went on a rainy Monday and had a great meal! It was margarita Monday so that was great. We had the guacamole made at your table which was delicious and a nice touch. My husband and I each had tacos on soft shell, both chicken and fish, messy but very tasty! Agave has a really great vibe and the... More

We stopped at Agave Grill for a quick meal and to try their awesome margaritas. The menu options were endless with a lot of variety. Upon arrival, we were promptly seated by the window as we requested. Our waitress offered to bring us some guacamole and to our surprise, it was prepared fresh right before our eyes! The service was... More

The freshly made guacamole is to die for. Service is also good during the work day and place is packed evening . They must be doing something right!

Great Mexican! The Tacos Alambres is outstanding as are the empanadas. The mexicali sauce that comes with the empanadas is really tasty and something my wife and I have tried to replicate at home. Also try the chicken tamale, it's outstanding sometimes people miss out because they don't see it on the 'sides' portion on the menu......enjoy amigos!

We used the Agave Canteen for a Memorial Day gathering at our house and they were amazing. Not only was the food great, but the staff was super friendly and all 50 guests had extremely positive things to say about the service and fabulous food. If you're looking for a fun idea for a party in the Hartford area -... More
