We wanted to head out for late nights snacks and a nightcap and came upon Agave Tequila Bar and Grill. We have high expectations for Mexican and this place was right up there. Pretty small inside, but it was quiet late Sat night and we were seated right away. Server was friendly and gave good recommendations. Food was a little... More

In search of a quick lunch in downtown Hartford, we found ourselves at Agave. It was pretty busy at around 1pm on a Saturday, with lots of locals enjoying the food or just having a few beers. Complimentary tortilla chips & dips arrived quickly and were pretty good. It took a while for our order to be taken but more... More

Convenient to where I work, a great place to enjoy a nice and affordable happy hour after a long day at the office. Good selection of happy hour type snack food, as well as beverages at very good prices. Either a nice margaritta or mojito (or cold beer!) and some snacks.. along with some good company.. good to go for... More

My husband and I love Mexican food and finally had a night out. We saw this place on the internet tonight. The table was sticky and the rest room (unisex) was not the cleanest. Also there was a large table of VERY LOUD middle age drinkers, so my husband and I had to yell to each other to be heard.... More

Hard to find good authentic Mexican in the north east. Agave is definitely one of the best. Definitely worth a visit! Parking stinks but the service is awesome!

Perhaps more Tex-Mex than Mex, but definitely not run-of-the-mill. The only thing ordinary was the tortilla chips and salsa served while I was waiting. They mostly went untouched. Then I had a delicious Grilled Portabella and Spinach Quesadilla served with pico de gallo, crème fraîche, and an ordinary guacamole. For a side, I had very good Yucca Fries with a... More

No matter what you order, from appetizers to dessert, you can't go wrong at Agave's. The people are friendly and food authentic and must I say the guacamole dip is the best I have ever tasted. And you can't get it any fresher, its made right at your table. The restaurant is small, but the wait is always worth it.

I looked up this place and thought I would give it a shot....a simple small place with a nice atmosphere. Wide variety of entrées and the chips and salsa were very tasty. Staff was pleasant, attentive and very efficient. I would defiantly stop by again if I'm near by.

Run-of-the-mill tex-mex style mexican food mostly indistinguishable from most mex chains I've been to. SO is mexican, so I've had my share of authentic mexican food, and this ain't it. Better bet: find their food truck out and about the city for cheaper, fresher fare without any of the tired trappings or corona gear.
