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

We went for happy hour, and stayed for dinner. What a great place. Our waitress was fantastic! Her name was Missy T. We were made to feel very much at home. We weren't rushed at all. We had a window seat and watched Hartford's hustle and bustle go by. The chorizo tacos were great and the refried black beans, fantastic.... More

The food is average, I enjoyed mine, my friend did not. Seemed a bit overpriced. Service was good, staff were nice enough.

This was my second time at Agave. First time was for lunch. We started with chips and guacamole which is made fresh but expensive at $11. We had the empanadas, tacos, and flutas. The second time on a Saturday for a family dinner we had flutas, empanadas, tacos, enchiladas, and chicken wrap everything was delicious. The service was a little... More

We stopped in at Agave Grill for a quick bite to eat before seeing a show in Hartford. It seemed to have some good reviews so we were hoping it would live up to the hype. It did. Our waiter was noticeably good at his job - he was the type of guy that always seemed to be there when... More
