Agave is a couple of miles from downtown Atlanta, but well worth the trip. (Remember, in Atlanta, a couple of miles can take you 30 minutes depending on traffic and time of day!)

When I say 'fancy', I usually mean 'expensive'. It's not your neighborhood mexican place for sure. The food is upscale, but very good.

The place is cozy and has a warm atmosphere, what you really care about is the service and the food. The service is exceptional with very attentive servers, and the food was very good and the portions large.
