We stopped by tonight to put our names in at 730. Were told 3 and a half hours wait which takes us to 11pm. The restaurant closes at 10pm. Typcial Agave bull. Not worth the wait. Newly redone restaurant with the same crappy service.

We ate here last summer and it was outstanding. Came back the weekend before Memorial Day and were SO disappointed, it was closed for renovations. So call before going to make sure they are open.

Closed since January 1, 2017 - this is a wonderful restaurant - however I find it impossible to understand why they have received what appear to be recent reviews since they have been closed so far this year. Would not want someone to plan to...More

The food here I would say is "high quality" Mexican. Wonderful drinks and margaritas. A variety of guacamole dips that go behind the basic avocado- some with feta and various other flavors. Entrees excellent. Coconut cake to die for. Only issue is getting a table!!!...More

I dedicated a summer to eat there once a week and eat the menu from top to bottom. From experience, I can say everything is good. Try it all. It is very easy to fill-up on their the amazing guacamoles. Order a mix of guacamoles....More

The food is excellent and do are the margaritas. The guacamole is fantastic. There is always a line waiting to get in.

Sit at the bar or wait for a table. Either way you will enjoy Agave. My personal favorite is a frozen pomegranate margarita and house made guacamole at the bar while waiting for a table. Dinner can be a 3 hour wait on the weekend...More

Not sure since it is now closed for renovation. Scheduled to open in May. They may post new hours then.

I would like to make a reservation for dinner. I followed the link to their website and there were only links to other Agave references, not a website for that particular restaurant. How do I make a reservation? Thanks :-)

No reservations...First thing to do when you arrive.....put your name in to the hostess and give them your cell number and go look at the shops..they'll text/call you when table is ready .
When do they close for the off season?

Agave usually close right before New Years and then reopen around Valentine's Day.
