An indian summer to remember, shooting past 90 on the outside, and feeling ohh so warm and fuzzy in the AC inside. First impressions being what they are, we were about to head to nuclear disaster, with what almost seemed to be irreparable service... So the culinary saga begins... The lower level is first come, first serve with walls full... More

First off, this place allowed me to better appreciate the Mexican Restaurants that are close to my home, for price and variety and flavor. My wife and adult Daughter had been here a few years back and had enjoyed their experience. We have traveled extensively throughout Mexico and have decades of experience with the various food opportunities found in Mexico.... More

I don't often review restaurants where we didn't eat, but I'll make this exception. We had been shopping/sightseeing for about 4 hours and were meeting friends for dinner at a nearby steakhouse and just needed a place to relax for a few minutes before hiking back to the car. There were three of us and we walked into Agave just... More

I saw a few of the reviews and went thinking it was like a Jose Tejas. NOT AT ALL. Quaint restaurant with outside seating. Gaucamole was like a meal. Seriously, only order if you are sharing with a group. We had a party of 4 and when I got my meal I was almost full. The chips and salsa and... More

I have been to Agave many times. The quality of the food is consistant. The food is always good. Service is always fast and friendly. Seating is a bit crowded. There are 3 different bar areas--a perfect place to drink the perfect Margarita's that Agave is famous for!! Overall, if you are looking for good unauthentic Mexican food and delicious... More

Always packed, but worth the wait. Drinks are excellent, so are the chips and salsa. They expanded, so there's a huge bar area, 3 floors of dining plus outdoor seating in summer. I like the food very much, but having been used to Tex-Mex in Dallas, it doesn't compare. Still, if you crave Mexican and Margaritas in Massachusetts, this is... More

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

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
