The chicken burrito was a little boring and bland to me. But I like spicy food. So to someone else, this would probably be delicious. Other than that the service and everything else was excellent. My friends both enjoyed their food very much. I'lll try something else the next time.

Food, service and ambiance are great, but for a larger group or more intimate occasion I would recommend reserving a table in the larger dining area. The small dining area near the front entry was rather loud.
Also the valet service was excellent - very professional, courteous and responsive.

Eventhough it was early 6ish, we were seated in one of the worst seats in the building, smelled musty not pleasant, server had on blinders could only get their attention by calling their name, food was average at best. Hatch Chili stew should be call potato stew. Queso Fundito was gross kitchen forgot to include pico de gallo, sour cream, & cilantro Agave Marg was way too sweet. Kitchen was behind due to large parties so too forever to get meal. Valets, they where great. Not going back anytime soon

As we were enjoying yet another marvelous meal here we realized we have been coming to agave for almost 17 years! I have tried almost everything on the menu at one time or another and never been disappointed. That being said the scallops are still my favorite and i love them paired with the collards and grits, yummy!! Of course the margaritas are amazing. My favorite dessert is the banana cheesecake with chocolate ganache on top.

I have been going to Agave since they opened, but haven't been in a couple of years. I'm so glad I revisited them! They are always consistent with great food and service. I've probably had hundreds of calamari appetizers, but I can truly say that Agave serves the best calamari I've ever had. My entree was the seared tuna, and it was absolutely delicious! My dining companion and I shared the banana cheesecake, and we were in heaven! It may not be the newest kid on the block, but for awesome food and service, you cannot beat Agave. I'm actually already planning my next visit. :)

I went to Agave years ago and was not enthralled with the food and feel the same way after this last visit. I made it clear to our waiter that I cannot eat very spicy food and asked his opinion about the beef soup in which he said it was not that spicy. It was so hot I only had a spoonful and gave it to my brother who loves spicy food, and even he said it was too hot. I had a pork enchilada which was okay but not anything special. The ambiance was way too dark to the point that we had to move to a window and the blinds could not be opened otherwise the sun would have been to much for the next table. Taylor was our waiter and he was very nice and willing to please. It is definitely the food that would not allow me to return. Everyone cannot be pleased so I don't want this to be too negative, it is just not for me personally.

This has become our go-to for good quality Mexican food in Atlanta. We especially appreciate that they have a vegetarian menu. Quality is consistent and ingredients are fresh. The only problem is that their house-made salsa is too addictive and forces you to consume too many chips before the meal arrives :-)

My husband and I really enjoyed the food. He ordered the Chicken Poblano soup (which he shared and it was yummy) and the Red Pepper Salmon. I ordered the Fish Tacos, which were perfectly cooked fish. The Coconut & Lime Margarita was very delicious! The service was great. My only complaint is we were stuck all the way on the other side of the restaurant, away from the ambiance. I made reservations 3 weeks in advanced, hoping this would make a difference in seating... guess not. Oh well. We would definitely go back and just politely ask for front seating in the future.

I was disappointed in this place as I had seen great reviews but honestly, the food was average, VERY average. We ordered the guacamole and it tasted very bland and the chips were stale. My fish was over cooked and my kids rice was also. The waitress also forgot to bring out one of the kids meals and my husbands drink. We had to chase her down for it. Wouldn’t recommend or come back.

Very good food. Great menu. Early bird pricing made very good value. Extremely loud, difficult to converse with our table. Pretty cool atmosphere but a bit cramped. Server overworked so impacted overall service pretty significantly. Nothing personal as he was friendly, just couldn't handle everyone efficiently. Will certainly give it another visit.
