Agave Restaurant is in Cabbage Town Atlanta. A place previously unknown to me.Rustic atmosphere, very friendly staff and wonderful Southwest/Mex food makes this place hard to beat.There is a buzz from the busyness,but not loud and distracting. The food is straight from local farms to table and all seafood appeared to be fresh as billed. All 8 of us "cleaned... More

This place is cute & eclectic. Everything was delicious, starting from the salsa that is promptly brought to the table. I got the scallops after the waiter recommended them. They were amazing. Great atmosphere, food & service!

Went for dinner on a Saturday night, of course there was a long wait for a table but it was well worth it. They have so many different types of margaritas and the food was not your typical Mexican dishes, definitely creative dishes with some Mexican flavor. I had the salmon dish and it was really great. I would certainly... More

Drinks were good...I enjoyed the Pablano Pepper stuffed with steak. It was on the appetizer menu but it was large enough to enjoy as a meal. The chips & salsa were some of the best I had ever eaten.

Agave on a Saturday night is really busy, noisy, but the food is good. My only gripe with the restaurant is how really small their entrees are. I had a "special" which consisted of two shrimp and two scallops over blue cheese grits. It was $24.00 and I ate it in five minutes. Again, my disappointment with Agave is not... More

We love this restaurant. Parking is easy, it's cute and cozy inside, margaritas pack enough of a punch, service is always warm, and most importantly we've tried at least half the menu and never been disappointed. Hubby loves the stuffed trout. My favorite is anything with a side of collards

My wife and I had a very nice meal there. The service was good and the restaurant was noisy and crowded. Very good sign of its popularity. We had been there a few nights earlier and had problems with one wrong meal Bering served out of 6. Just a hiccup, the manager made it right. Highly recommend !!

This restaurant came highly recommended. While the food and service were exceptional, the drinks were very disappointing. Chips and salsa very yummy! Everyone at our table, there were 6 of us, got the Agave House Margarita which was pricier than all the others on the menu. No one was impressed. It was too sappy sweet and we all ordered extra...
