First the positives, we sat at the bar and were there early on a Saturday night. Bartender was amazing, super fast. My husband had the spicy beef enchilada's, they were delicious, the refried beans look gross but taste awesome. He had a regular margarita and I had the habanero one, it is definitely spicy. It was delicious. He thought the... More

We went here before a show at the Bushnell. Very busy night and I think our server was overwhelmed. Took awhile to get drinks. 2 out of 5 orders were wrong. They did comp the bill because we couldn't wait for them to remake it. Server never came back to see if we wanted more drinks, we had to call... More

This is the best Mexican restaurant I have ever been to. Fantastic atmosphere, great service, and most importantly, the food is absolutely delicious. My favorites are the blue corn street tacos and the fish tacos. Generous portions with delicious rice and bean sides. Cannot say enough!!

Definitely a must! The guac is very good and a must! We had tacos, tortilla soup, burritos. The habanero margarita was outstanding as well as the chambord margarita. Wait staff is very friendly and professional! The only critique I have is my meal was the chicken and veggie dish with shrimp and it was very over cooked. The flavor was... More

We were looking for a pre-game dinner choice, close to the XL Center. Agave Grill is literally across the street with a Mexican-inspired menu bar, and separate event room(s). Apparently known for their tacos, we enjoyed the lobster filled enchilladas, Margaritas, and 'tableside Guacamole' (which is offered by the waitstaff right off, prepared from fresh avacados in front of you,...

Read reviews about this place and so glad I was able to try it on this trip. So authentic. They make guacamole fresh at your table side. Sausage taco to die for!! Best I ever had. Oh and don't forget about the sangria. Perfect dinner!

Was here with a large party- 6 families with kids in the middle of a blizzard. Food was good. Service was a bit slow- It was a busy night, and they should have given our waitress some more help. Not out this world fantastic, but solid Mexican food.

Agave, in downtown Hartford, has been a Mexican restaurant you can depend for over decade. Good service, typical menu of enchiladas, tacos, fajitas, etc. but with a special twist, always great bartenders. And, the made at table side guacamole is a must have.

A great spot within walking distance to many hotels, a little loud, but absolutely worth it. Everything was fresh and tasty and the wait staff was very attentive. Highly recommend the Mexican style paella.
