“Great Guac”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

While the prices may be a little high, the tableside guacamole at Agave Grill is reallly top notch, though for my taste could be a little more spicy. I would also highly recommend the Chicken Tortilla Soup. It is truely a meal in a bowl and has a nice amount of heat. And of course, there are the drinks. The margaritas are decent size for the price.

“Good Food Slightly Over Priced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

Nicest Mexican restaurant around. Great guacomole but $11 is high for 2 avocados worth. Tried the veggies burrito for the first time - it was really tasty but what's with the huge pieces of red onion?? Veggie prep needs a few more minutes.

“OK, nothing spectacular”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

Came for lunch on a Sunday. decent service, food was about average, nothing out of the ordinary, chicken in my salad was dry, a little overcooked. It's one of the few places open in downtown Hartford on a Sunday. Did not have the table side guacamole, maybe if you like guacamole that would be something to try? I will say that it's very clean, pleasant staff, nice atmosphere. I'd say what I had to eat was average, service very good. They also seem to do takeout, so maybe that's an option to try.

“Mondern Mexican”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

During our stay in downtown Hartford, we ventured around the corner for some drinks and decided on Agave Grill. We had margaritas which were very good, Guac made table side to start. They have a decent menu with many options but we weren’t starving so we decided on a couple of appetizers to share. BBQ Wings and Lobster Tostada. Very good with good service!

“Visit during Happy Hour ; )”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

Planned on trying Agave out on our visit to Hartford for the Luke Bryan concert. After seeing the menu for this place, I figured I'd most likely be spending $100 or more. We arrived at the restaurant at around 4:00 pm and was pleasantly surprised that Happy Hour ran from 3-6. Tapas were $3 and drinks were $4. The food and Staff were exceptional. Our waitress, Jessi K, was absolutely awesome. Friendly, attentive and had a great sense of humor. If you go, go during happy hour, Mon-Fri 3:00-6:00. Also, try their Tuna Ceviche, very good.
