The food, service and drinks are definitely worth a visit! Their drinks, all fresh and desserts deserve a special mention. In order to get in at a reasonable time I would recommend putting your name in around 4:30 or 5 if it is a busier evening. We waited for 2 hours on a very busy night (night before thanksgiving!) but... More

What a wonderful surprise when we met friends for a bite at Agave. The wait was long....maybe an hour which we heard was not long for this spot. We had beers at the bar during our wait. Living about 45 minutes away, we felt it was well worth the trip. Our server was wonderful and gave great recommendations. Makes me... More

Loved the appetizers! Could make a meal of them. Good margaritas too! No problem being seated on a Thursday night in the off season and service was fine.

Yes, Agave is a very nice restaurant and has very good Mexican food. Great ambiance, and if you get a good server on a good day, there's not much not to like. But waiting over an hour for a table is ridiculous with all of the other choices in the area (really, if you absolutely crave Mexican food and can't... More

We visited Agave on Thursday, December 4 around 5 PM. There was a 45 minute wait for a table, which we were told was reasonable. They do not take reservations, but will call you when your table is ready, allowing you to stroll around the town. Before receiving our table, we sat at the bar for a "small margarita" which...

Arrived at 4:30 pm and seated promptly. Server wasn't very pleasant and responsive so we needed to ask her every time we needed something. She made it seem like we were bothering her. The man delivering the foods was the opposite and I wish I could have tipped him instead. That said, the filet and chicken for the fajitas was... More

Went there with a friend for dinner on a weeknight. We had to wait around 15 minutes for a table. It was my first time there, but I was told that was a short wait compared to usual. The place is fairly small, so seating is limited. I ordered the mole chicken enchilada. The sauce was delicious and was packed... More

I been here twice and can honestly say they were one of the best meals I've had in my life. Their take on Mexican food is inventive. The cocktail they call daily special is delicious! They have an interesting variety of guacamole... my favorite is the one made with pumpkin seeds! Get there early or expect to wait for a... More

I try to eat at Agave about once a week. I have tried approximately 95% of the menu! and while I do have my favorites! I have enjoyed everything on the menu. I love their white sangria and their small margaritas. If I had to pick just a few dishes to recommend I would select the corn soup or the... More

So many great reviews so much time waiting for a table and the food was just average by all accounts. Yes good but not worth the price or the wait. We were disappointed in everything except the Sangria!
