I visited Agave in 2002 and found an above average menu. I visited in 2017 and now declare it to be a revelation. Do this even if you aren't fond of Mexican fare. Their extensive fresh grilled fish list and fried lobster tail will make you smile. -warm tasty chips and salsa appear instantly - superb margaritas - corn enchiladas... More

When you walk in you're greeted by a friendly staff. You have the options of sitting at the bar in front of various options of tequila or at a comfy table. You start off with fresh, homemade chips and salsa. They have a wide variety of appetizers, entrees, and delicious desserts. I would suggest the chocolate mousse or spicy peanut... More

I have been to Agave multiple times and they never let me down. The dishes are very creative and just as pleasing to the eye as the taste buds. When I go out to dinner I want to have something that I don't feel like I could prepare at home. The creativity of the dish, outstanding flavor and the most... More

My husband and I went to Agave on a date night before a show at the Fox. I am somewhat of a foodie and this was by far the best meal I have ever had. If I am on death row I want the scallops with grits and collard greens. It was just incredible. We also had the spring rolls... More

This is one of my favorite places. When we come we always sit at the bar so we can see all of the selections of tequila they have to offer. Plus the wait for a table was over 45 minutes. The food is amazing so compliments to the chef. My wife and I had Calamari, Fish Tacos, Smoked Salmon Tostadas... More

Agave is warm and welcoming, with brick and modern metal accents. This is unpretentious fine dining at its best. We ordered Stuffed Mountain Trout Tomatillo and Slow Braised Beef Short Ribs, and both were superb. The trout was super fresh, with a crawfish and mushroom stuffing that was every bit as good as the fish. Spanish rice is not a... More

My family took me here on my weekend trip to Atlanta, as it's their favorite restaurant in all of Atlanta. It did not disappoint! The margaritas were amazing. I had the beef tenderloin and loved it. We split a bunch of desserts and they were all decadent. Very glad they took me here over all the choices in Atlanta!

This South by Southwest restaurant is top rate. Located off the beaten track in the Cabbagetown area of Atlanta it's a little out of the way, but definite worth visiting. Free valet parking keeps things safe and the inside atmosphere and food is great. We starters with two of the award winning margaritas. Both the coconut and peach were smooth... More
