Agave is definitely the best Mexican in the area. The guacamole is always made fresh table side and is extremely flavorful. The chicken adobo chimichanga's are outstanding, and don't miss the cornbread pudding, which I think could stand tall as a meal of its own. The strawberry margarita's are spectacular. Our server Briana was great too. Highly recommend.

Ok, I was not expecting this great Mexican food, but we gave it shot and it was fantastic. You definitely should try this place. The tortillas tasted so fresh, homemade guacamole made at your table was fun and good. So much food plan on sharing appetizers to your dinner plate. Great atmosphere, great service.

Stopped in on Monday night. Couldn't believe how dead Hartford was, this was the only place that had customers so I figured it must be ok. Don't take the advice of the waiter on what margarita to get...1/2 the size for double the price. Otherwise, the food was good, the service was friendly and we got some tips on other... More

I had never been and ended up going before a show at Hartford Stage. I've seen the cart at Bushnell Park and had heard good things so I was excited to try it out. We had a late breakfast with no real lunch, so we devoured the basket of chips and dip waiting for our friends. The dip had a... More

Went in for a few drinks and food before a play at The Bushnell. We were able to take advantage of happy hour. $4 Margaritas! Food was tasty and delicious!

Went for dinner and it was amazing...the guacamole was worth the trip, made right at the table, and entrees were hot and fresh. I would recommend Agave for all who visit downtown Hartford

I stopped here for a late lunch after a business meeting in Hartford. We had missed the busy lunch crowd and was able to get a meal that was very tasty, very quickly.

Love to visit this place when in Hartford. Super friendly staff. Good bar drinks, and Mexican food that is like nothing I have eaten anywhere else. It is sooo good it keeps me coming back time after time.
