While visiting Atlanta, I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Agave with my family. Not to be confused with Mexican food, the Southwestern menu was filled with outstanding options. From vegetarian selections to delicious meat, fish and poultry selections, Agave gets a 5-star rating. Don't miss the margaritas, outstanding guacamole and yummy key lime pie to complement your meal. Fantastic!

We booked this restaurant with some trepidation because although we like hot food, we were worried we might be out of our league in this particular restaurant. Our waitress was terrific. She made suggestions and modifications to our choices to make sure our mouths wouldn't be on fire. My husband really enjoyed his short ribs and I also liked my... More

I'm not sure how many times that I've gone to Agave, but it's always my "go to" place when my friends and I are indecisive as to where to go. I love the vegetarian burrito--probably the best I've ever had anywhere across my travels. You need to ask for the vegetarian menu, however, as it is not featured on their... More

I held a party at this restaurant for my sister this past Saturday! We had a party of 28 in our group! We were assigned 2 servers, "Love" and another male waiter (forgot his name)! We orders several appetizers and everything came out promptly and expeditiously! The food was awesome and timely! We loved everything. The guacamole was to die... More

Have eaten here at least a dozen times. Love the food,and the service is top notch. Sign up for their newsletter and get access to nightly deals before 6 pm. Ask for seating in one of the back rooms. The bar area can be crowded and noisey. Planning on another trip there this weekend.

Was in Atlanta for a trade show and saw great ratings for this restaurant and thought we'd give it a try. Definitely not disappointed, the food was excellent. There were eight of us at the table and everyone thoroughly enjoyed there meal. The place is lively and the prices reasonable. They do have dishes with some heat so be sure... More

We ordered one entree with scallops and another with shrimp. The shrimp had a light spice with a distinguished and tasty off-the-grill taste. Both entries were served with a form of grits - one in a baked cake form and the other in a more traditional style with cheese and some heat. The scallops were cooked just right and they... More

my wife and I actually like one another hence we enjoy a robust conversation when we choose to dibe out. it seems like a train was running through the restaurant the entire time we were there. The noise level was so high it was impossible to have a conversation. None of the finer qualities of the restaurant could be outweighed... More

Visited Agave with some co-workers. I'm not sure if it is always as crowded as it as the night we went, but it was very busy. The tables are a little close for my taste, but that did not take away from the experience. Service was quick and friendly. I had a Veggie Quesadilla, which had roasted peppers, spinach, green...

It was a night out with my lady friend, she drove by Agave one day and wanted to check it out. They call the menu 'southwest', that's a pretty good label for the menu and there were several good choices, it was an enjoyable dinner.
