Frustrating, can never get in, don't take reservations

What good is a great restaurant if you can never get in? They don't take reservations so you have to just show up. I can't tell you how many times we have been told there is a 2hour wait...or more, never less. When asked what people did during a wait of that length we were told to put our names... read more

We thought we would give the Agave Mexican Grill a shot after a local recommendation for some spicy options. We beat the crowd before the Cinco De Mayo celebrations were just beginning to ramp up with drink and food specials. Entres were not very imaginative and basic fare. The salad topped with roasted chicken was tasty and the soft tacos... More

Upscale Mexican cantina, with freshly-sourced ingredients, and whose staff accommodates allergies and special needs. Entrees and salads are huge, with fresh ingredients. Red salsa and jalapeno cheese cornbread are musts. I don't know how they charge so reasonably for their fantastic food!

As a resident, we go here midweek/non season. Last time we cLled they said four hour wait - is that possible? No reservations - my favorite includes mango salad, fajitas for two with fillet, lushous margaritas!

I'm going to give you the truth, if you want to pop in and get a table quick, go to McDonald's. If you plan ahead, put your name on the list, then go explore the shops and pubs in the area, then you will have a great meal! Top 5 margaritas IN The World!

By far, one of the best Mexican restaurants in the area. Everything is prepared from scratch and the dishes are a delight to the "taste buds". Their tequila bar features an abundance of various Mexican spirits and the margaritas are well worth the price. We have been there on numerous occasions and have never had a bad meal. Service was...

Great food. Great margaritas. Pricey though. Service is never good. The place is small, the wIt is long, and when you get a table the service is still terrible

We went here based on the reviews in trip advisor and did not regret the decision. The food quality was excellent. The downside was that it was pretty pricey, even for an upscale Mexican restaurant. No complimentary chips and salsa come with the meal. We ordered the garlic and shrimp guacamole ($10) which was delicious. We also split a small... More

We went for a late birthday lunch/early dinner with a party of 7. The wait, as others have said, can be long, but Lewes is so charming we were willing to wait. We window shopped and bought candy at Bee's beautiful store until we were paged. The meal was absolutely delicious! We started with the guacamole sampler, and the pumpkin... More

All is so good... We started with a the Avocado appetizer Agave style - fresh and delish with a very generous portion... then the main courses - for me the Fish Taco's were just amazing - perfectly spiced, white flaky fish.. yum yum... My wife had the Fajita's and still talks about how good they were.. Which I am surprised... More
