I was late on a Saturday night and they were still able to accommodate me and my party! The food, from the chips to my entree, was excellent! I'm a Texan and love to Southwestern inspired food!!

I went on a Sunday night around 6:30pm. It was good that we went early bc the place was packed on our way out. We started with guac to go with our bottomless chips and salsa and had the chilli relleno. Our drinks were a little sweey but we enjoyed them (coconut margarita and the passionfruit margarita). Then we had... More

Went here with friends and really enjoyed the fare. The guacamole was fresh and delicious. The ceviche was very tasty and the relleno was excellent. We had a number of entrees including the skirt steak, the scallops, and the tuna. All were incredible but the skirt steak was the winner. A great scene and solid service. We will be back!

Agave is a must try! They have so many eclectic entrees on the menu that it makes it tough to make a decision on what to order. I had the Spicy Tequila Shrimp and it was wonderful! Neat atmosphere!

Every time we head north to Atlanta, my husband and I make an effort to eat at Agave, one of the tastiest southwestern restaurants in the South. Delicious margaritas and posole!

Very disappointing night at Agave, this had been one of my favorites but hadn't been in a couple of years so I was excited to be going back I had the famous chicken but it was so flat, taste and serving size. The potatoes too had no taste. Grilled corn was great though but it's hard to mess that up... More

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!
