This is a seedy looking area but you absolutely cannot let this get in the way of your decision to enjoy Agave. This is truly a Tex-Mex experience, so if you have stomach issues you can ask the chef to tone down the spices; however if you are in love with spice they can turn it up. Everything was good... More

We were in town just temporarily and decided to try this place out. As we pulled up I was certain I wasn't going to like it. It looks a bit seedy from the outside and there doesn't seem to be sufficient parking. When you walk in you step into awesomeness. We had the ceviche as an appetizer; salmon, steak and... More

We booked a reservation for after theater on Sunday evening. Place was crowded and loud, but, we were seated quickly. The menu was a bit of a surprise. EVERYTHING, and I mean from salad to sides, was spicy. I am not a hot and spicy diner. However, I asked the waitress if anything was available without the spicy seasonings and... More

This was my third trip to Agave over the last four years and every meal I have eaten there has been delicious. We got off to a great start our night with guacamole and margaritas. The entrees however are the real treasure. For the second time I had the Veal, chorizo & green chile meatloaf, which may be one of... More

WARNING TO GROUPON USERS: When using a Groupon at Agave, you are required to make a reservation (which is wise to do anyway) and indicate that you are using a Groupon. I guess this is okay...maybe they want to limit the amount they accept per night. However, it made me feel "marked." When we were seated, we were taken to... More

A good friend of mine and I had dinner and business conversation last night at this quaint place in Cabbagetown, Atlanta, GA. The food was good...I had the Southwestern Spicy Meat Loaf, with greens. Quite Tasty! The noise was too high for normal and detailed conversation, though. It must have been the happy hours. It would help incredibly if this,... More

This was our first visit to Agave and it certainly will not be our last. From the chips & salsa, calamari, Navajo flounder, stuffed mountain trout, to the cheesecake, the food was excellent. The restaurant is small so I would recommend making reservations in advance. The ambience was perfect for us. The service we received from our waiter, Sam was... More

This was my second visit to Agave. Requested a table near the fireplace when I made the reservation and was happy to be seated right in front of it. The food was excellent, as it was on the first visit. The service was a little sketchy this time. The waitress got my date's entrée wrong, and she just seemed...flighty for... More

The food was awesome. The salsa was a bit spicy but I love spicy foods and the chips were fresh and warm. I ordered the steak medallions medium well and it was the best thing ever! nice and tender good flavor. I cleaned the plate. Would suggest arriving time they open or place a reservation. The atmosphere is nice but... More

Although my rating is a 4, it is a 4+. I was a little skeptical about eating New Mexican food in Atlanta, but I was completely won over. The Hatch Green Chile Stew with beef, potatoes, chiles and corn was thick, meaty and had a nice subtle heat, kind of an after burner. Given the cold currently in Atlanta, this... More
