4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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...

Not a bad spot in a hip little corner of town. The apps were good and the main dishes were above average. I was underwhelmed by the margaritas which is a bummer. I had high hopes. The mix was way to sweet even in a spicy jalapeño marg. Moved over to a mezcal number and it was equally just ok.... More

I ate here with a friend on June 29th. There was not one single detail that could have made the meal and experience better. We shared the green chili stew, scallops and key lime pie. The service was impeccable and I'm still dreaming of the grits.

I discovered this place about a year ago (at the recommendation of a relative) and we come every chance we get. We dined there last night and everything was perfect, as usual. Great food, atmosphere, service and drinks. I have tried most of the menu and I am never disappointed. Some of our favorites include the poblano soup, scallops with... More

This is our go-to place when in Atlanta. The food is consistently inventive and tasty, the margaritas are unique and strong. :) Great atmosphere (although a bit noisy for a "date night"), fast service, and a fun neighborhood to walk thru after dinner.

Absolutely one of the best that Atlanta has to offer. The menu is eclectic and inventive and interesting and changes over time so it's never the same if you haven't been in a while. The service is some of the very best that I have had anywhere. And I love love love the drink selections. Definitely should be on everyone's... More

I've been frequenting Agave for several years now and I tell you, "it's delicious." I have never had anything that disappointed. The food is mouth watering. The drinks are divine. The dessert is heavenly. What more could you ask for! It's not the cheapest restaurant, but you get what you pay for and it's worth it. Parking is ample, but... More
