Great food with a Southwestern flair

It had been a while since we had visited and we decided to try it out again for a date. It was a Wednesday night and the place was packed...very lively atmosphere. The chips were fresh and the salsa tasted great, and it was very spicy. I ordered the short ribs and they were very tender and... read more

We read online reviews and thought we'd have trouble with no reservation. We went and got seated immediately!! Never been before so we asked for recommendations. From our drinks to entrees we were not disappointed. We ate and did not feel rushed. Flatiron steak was so tender! The scallops were some best ever eaten. Not tough. Not over cooked. Grits... More

We found this place to be very popular with several large tables of over 15 people. Our server did a great job handling us, a party of 5 on top of two large parties. It is a very noisy atmosphere and quite dark inside but the food makes up for it. Fish tacos were seasoned with a little bite but... More

We went to Agave for our anniversary on a Saturday evening around 7pm. It was a 45min-1hr wait time (reservations are available) for a table, so we decided to sit at the bar. The bartender Lisa was awesome. She served us some phenomenal margueritas, and took care of our order. I had the stuffed trout and my husband the lamb.... More

I live in the Burbs, so was long drive to get here and the neighborhood is not the greatest. However the food was phenomenal! Scallops were fantastic! Key lime pie and peanut butter pie phenomenal! Margaritas made with premium tequilas were some of the smoothest I have had in a long time. Please open another one in Alpharetta.

First and last visit. Service, food, and drinks were mediocre. Drinks were pretty but weak. Food was bland. Our server had no personality. We ordered crawfish stuffed trout and scallops w/ grits. The fish entree was terribly overcooked.The fish was dry and the crawfish were rubbery.The collard greens were too sweet and there was no hint of hickory smoked bacon.... More
