Great Mexican Food

I stopped in Agave with friends for a couple appetizers and drinks. The wait was an hour and a half on Saturday night at 7 pm in the summer time. Not sure if they take reservations, but something to be mindful of before going or call ahead. The restaurant does seem to accommodate a lot of people... read more

This is the best Mexican restaurant on the North Shore. You can't beat the chicken nachos. They're margaritas are amazing too!

We're used to SoCal Mexican food, and have had some good nachos, but nothing compared to these! Four of us could not finish a regular size order!!!

We had a soup (Cocido De Pollo), which was served with a "tea spoon". I guess they wanted us to enjoy their soup very slowly. We shared fajitas, which was plenty for two people.

Excellent experience, celebrating a 90th birthday with family.. We had a variety of appetizers and entrees, everything including the cocktails were top notch. Jessica, provided super service. Overall just a great great time. We would recommend it highly!

Agave never disappoints! We had dinner on the evening of the Classic Car Show. We were seated on the third floor at a window seat, a birds eye view of awesome cars and wandering crowds. Dinner of course was great, shrimp tacos and grilled steak salad? They also have a great selection of tequila. Very yummy cocktails!

Great Mexican food, drinks, & service. Their menu has plenty of options & their seating expands three floors. This is a great option for food other than seafood.

We LOVE Agave! Go probably every time we go to Newburyport. The ceviche is the best, although they haven't had a the last few times we've visited. :( but we will venture out "what we always order" and are never disappointed. the cocktails are very good and the staff is always so friendly and helpful. Thank you to Dan who... More
