Agave has become a staple restaurant in Newburyport. Food is consistently great and staff is always friendly. The three levels offer a variety of atmospheres depending on what you are looking for. I am partial to the third floor at the bar when meeting a friend "downtown" for lunch or dinner, the first floor if we are just grabbing a... More
My wife and I just spent the weekend in Newburyport and after an afternoon of walking by the folks eating outside at Agave we decided that we needed to do dinner there Saturday night - it looked good and it looked enjoyable. It was too late to secure a reservation so we decided to go and try to get seats... More
If you loved the authentic Mexican menu Agave offered when it first opened, you will be disappointed. The drinks are still large.and tasty but that was the only thing that seemed recognizable. Some things I noted were the nacho chips they offer used to be unending and come In big bowl. This time, 3 people got a tiny plate with... More
Agave has been a consistent standby, visited often over many years. The margaritas are still good, the chips are freshly made, the guacamole is good, and the ceviche, when they have it, is also good. The rest is pretty pedestrian fare, which ranges from pretty good to sub-par. The menu hasn't changed in years, there is too much stodgy rice... More
Maybe if you just wanted to sit at the bar, drink and eat nachos you would be satisfied here. The only thinkg worse than the service that night was the food itself. I woun't be back, that is of course, I just want to sit at the bar...... Better Mexican establishments out there...

How great is it to have a dependable Mexican restaurant right in town. Everything is super fresh and prepared beautifully. The avocado and shrimp salad is my favorite thing on the menu.
Hi Heyjoenyc, Happy to hear you enjoyed your time with us! I too love the avocado and shrimp salad! As the owner, it is very important to me that the produce, fish and meats we use are the freshest and the best quality. So glad you enjoyed it and hope to see you in here again soon!

We had plans to dine elsewhere but stopped in for a beer and a margarita. I asked the server if they had a marg with a little "heat" and she recommended a great drink with jalapeno-infused tequila and mango puree - sorry forget the name. Delish. We were served wonderful warm chips with salsa. They serve very good food too... More
Hi TravelbugNH, The great drink that you enjoyed is called the Hot Shot Mango Margarita and it is yummy! As for the chips, we hand cut them and make them here fresh everyday! Yes, next time you come you need to stay for dinner :) Thanks for the kind words, Dawn McCandless More
Quite simply said, the service was great and the food was amazing. It is authentic Mexican food. The portions are large and the price is very fair. This restaurant is a must visit if you are in Newburyport, MA.
Hi Vacation_LoversNJ, Thanks so very much for the wonderful endorsement! Newburyport is a very special place and we like to think that we are one of the places that helps to make it special. So happy you enjoyed yourself and come back and see us soon when you are visiting from New Jersey! Thanks again, Dawn McCandless More
