Full bottle & draft beer menu as well as wine by the glass & bottle. Three floors of Resturaunt in a charming old building. Dining at all... More

I have dined at Agave MANY times and am always plead with the quality of food, the level of service, the overall decor, and the friendliness of the owner and staff. Aside from signature Mexican fare, their Shrimp & Avocado Salad is incredible - and massive. And the "house" margarita never disappoints.

We frequent Agave when we're in town. The food is good (I particularly like the cheese enchiladas with their homemade mole sauce) and the service efficient and pleasant. The atmosphere is also enjoyable - sort of a mix between friendly and sophisticated. There's a small bar in the front and a larger one to the right on the ground floor... More

This is by far the BEST Mexican restaurant around! The tacos are so tasty and the kids love the Casa Dias! You can't go wrong with the delicious Sangria. In the summer it is nice to sit outside and enjoy the people watching while enjoying your meal.

Don't bother with the food, it's just not worth eating, stick to the drinks and your all set. Oh maybe the chips make the mark

This was a wonderful mexican restaurant. The appetizers were great, as well as the homemade chips and salsa. They gave you a great quantity of food and the Margaritas were the best!

This is the first review we wrote of this type. However, our theme is consistent with every other review we wrote. We seek value - the best possible quality at the lowest possible price. We are not idiots. We do not believe the simple platitude that "you get what you pay for". This simple platitude is for the simple-minded. All... More

The food here is a predictable but tasty Mexican fare. You wont have alot of privacy here for a romantic interlude as you will be almost elbow to elbow with the people at the next table. If you like a busy, happening and active restaurant with lots going on around you, then this is a good spot. There are bars... More

We had a reservation for this past Saturday evening. We were early so we had to wait a bit, but we luckily got a table quickly ordered drinks and a bowl of guacamole. The chips were freshly made and still really hot. The quac was really good (not the best I've ever had, but we inhaled the huge portion we... More
