I miss this restaurant. This was our absolute favorite place to go for dinner. We drove past one day and discovered it was closed. No idea if they moved, lost their lease or what. Totally bummed!

Very good food. Different dishes available than at almost every other Mexican restaurant I have been to. Ingredients are also fresh. They have a cabbage salsa that is fantastic.

This has to be one of the worst restaurants I've been to. My husband and I decided to try something new in the area and boy were we disappointed. The service was bad. When the waitress brought our chicken tortilla soup and we asked her for a ladle because we wanted to share we got a plastic cup because "the... More

We were impressed when we walked into the restaurant. The decor was so nicely done and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. I enjoyed the cabbage-like mix that was served with the fresh tortillias. My husband and I each ordered a different combination plate. My husband isn't too picky and said his meal was "all right". My chile relleno... More

We had a Living Social coupon and had read some positive reviews of Agave, so decided to give it a try for lunch on a Saturday. The restaurant was pleasantly decorated and clean; we were greeted and seated immediately, and our server was quick to take our orders. The food came so quickly we were surprised; there didn't seem to... More

My friend and I NEEDED margaritas for Cinco de Mayo and stumbled on Agave at 9:30. Having zero expectations of a restaurant is often an advantage when trying a new place and we were pleasantly surprised by the food and service. Because it was late in the evening of an understandably busy day there was a short wait, but the... More

This place caught my eye every time I drove past - it has a colorful and great sign. I'm generally inclined against strip mall restaurants but I've been recently surprised so I gave it a try. Staff is friendly, place is clean, and has lively décor. Good amount of booths - always prefer a booth. I had the carnitas fajitas... More

We both loved the food. The menu had many choices with substitution possibilities. The chicken with chipotle sauce was sooo... good They had fresh salsa but also a cabbage salsa that had a great flavor. The service was great but we were there in the later evening. I would definitely recommend. We did not get dessert but we were tempted... More
