I was celebrating my birthday on 1/25/15 at Agave Restaurant with 9 of my friends. Just as we finished our order, one of my guests noticed a roach crawling down the wall! I immediately got the waitress attention and she came over and killed it. My guests and I were grossed out. I asked to speak with management. The "3rd... More

I cannot explain in words how much I love the Tuna Crudo appetiser. Its so perfectly balanced with heat and incredible flavour. I get it every time! The cheese grits and honey collard greens are amazing. I recommend the fiver scallops, mussels app, blue corn enchiladas, the chorizo beef taco entrée. Honestly you can't go wrong. Great service ( my... More

Recently I went to Atlanta with friends to participate in the Hot Chocolate 5k. Since the race had a really early start time we went up the night before. After picking up our packets at the GWCC we planned to have dinner downtown. However, the massive traffic changed our minds. We ended up at Agave and even though there was... More

Incredible food, in a portion that is just right. We all had something different and we all agreed our meals were delicious. The decor is very warm and inviting; parking, while challenging, was manageable (valet service). The only bad part was the wait- an hour and a half that was pretty much standing room only. And yet, you talk and... More

I am not the biggest fan of spicy food, but I can handle some of it. This had the perfect amount of spiciness on top of delicious food. I was also there for a birthday where we got a delicious piece of cheesecake. I highly recommend all I had: Appetizers-Corn and Shrimp egg rolss; Entree- Shrimp; Dessert-Chocolate banana cheesecake!

Had a meal here with friends and was impressed by this tex mex restaurant. The menu was extensive as was the list of Margaritas. Everything we had was good with portions not being overly large. The desserts were especially tasty and I highly recommend the Peanut Butter cake.

Agave is one of the most consistently wonderful restaurants in Atlanta. The chips and salsa are the best I’ve ever had, as are the Margheritas, and the guacamole is creamy and delicious. The only problem is that every item they have on their menu is so good that it’s often hard to decide what to get. The crawfish diablo is... More

Loved the margaritas, the ceviche and everything I have tried on the menu. Their salsa is great, too. On weekdays, you can get two for one appetizers and since my favorite item is the ceviche, it works out great for me! The only thing I don't like is that the only available parking is Valet. Some people like that, I... More

We enjoyed our food the dishes we tried were very flavorful. The steak was really good and the sea scallops and tomato fire roasted grits were very yummy. The only draw back was we were seated in an area where a party was going on so it was very loud and we did not linger long.

We have tried a few different things on their menu, all are excellent. The seared jumbo diver sea scallops are some of the best I've ever had anywhere, and the margaritas are top notch. Rigatoni green chile vodka pasta sounds like it might be too much of a fusion mash up, but it is an excellent blend of flavors and... More
