Not better than Taco Bell. Waiter was not friendly. Certainly a lot more expensive. I probably will not go back.

I was an avid supporter of Agave for years. It was a great place in Hartford for dinner or drinks and offered something different than the usual places in the area with just american food. I went many months ago and had a horrible experience with a rude waitress and chalked it up to a bad night. I had not... More

It was the first time we ate in Hartford. We had a really good time. The place was cozy and had good music. The staff was helpful and with knowledge about the menu. The price was right and the food delicious.

Had dinner here and enjoyed our meal very much. Food was fresh and of good quality and was served quickly. The table-side guacamole was very good. Nice ambiance for a casual meal. Service was friendly but slow, even though it wasn't crowded. We had to wait a while for drink refills and the check. Two of us sat at a... More

We had dinner here on a Saturday night. The restaurant was busy, but we were able to get a table relatively quickly. Service was right on spot and the food was delicious. We had the table-side guacamole which was delicious!! Prices were fair. Really enjoyed this restaurant!

The best part of the restaurant is the table-side guac! When you sit down, there's a bowl with an avocado, tomato, and lime on your table. What a great advertisement for guacamole! I had enchiladas, and they were good. Everyone seemed to enjoy their food, and the service was great.

Poor service, clueless hostess and mediocre food add up to: will not return. We started at bar while table was being cleared and when table was ready were told we had to leave bar and move to table so others could sit at bar. We were planning to relax a few more minutes at the bar but that wasn't acceptable.... More
