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.

I've been here three times - brunch, lunch, and dinner. All three occasions have been pleasant. Brunch is actually really good and I appreciated the Mexican twist on usual breakfast/brunch meals. Would recommend the grilled chicken wrap (non-brunch) if you are looking for something not too heavy with a spicy kick. Drinks-wise, their mango pear vodkarita is delicious and so... More

Great Mexican restaurant. Tasteful décor, great service. Best fresh guacamole I have ever had. The fish tacos were amazing. Rice and beans were obviously made from scratch and same day. We enjoyed a fabulous vanilla flan for dessert. Highly recommend this restaurant.

A friend and I tried this place for dinner after several recommendations. We were there on a Tuesday night, the place seemed very busy and the staff seemed rushed and harried. But we were seated pretty quickly and our waitress stopped at the table, asked if we were going to have tableside guac and we were in the middle of... More

We were in town on Sunday of Labor Day weekend. Many places were closed but very glad Agave was open. Very tasteful atmosphere. Food was great. I had a steak quesadilla with Pico and guacamole. Very flavorful; there was a slight kick from the peppers. Husband had spicy beef tacos. He's from Texas and declared these were some of the... More

Not many diners at the restaurant on a Sunday morning so we had plenty of attention from the friendly staff. Huevos Rancheros and Taco Combo were both very good. Place is convenient to the bus station downtown as well as the major highways.

A friend and I recently went here for lunch. I haven’t eaten here in a while and forgotten just how delicious the food is. We each ordered the house margarita on the rocks. These margaritas are killer, so large you can dive into them. They are made fresh, not that mix stuff a lot of places use. Usually I don’t... More
