In town visiting friends and we came her bases on reviews and it didn't disappoint. The food is very fresh and flavorful. I had the fried lobster tail and the scallops. They were excellent. The grits are amazing. Dessert, we had key lime and the cheesecake. Everything was awesome. Our sever Taylor was great! Can't wait to return.

Wow! Where do I start? The atmosphere is very chill. Not too bright but not too dark. We sat on the left side of the restaurant when you walk in. The bar is right at the door. My brother and I ordered margaritas and a host of food. I took pictures of everything so check out those for recommendations. Our... More

Our dining experience was outstanding! Our server was excellent. The fried lobster tail was a great appetizer. Both the baby back ribs and New York strip entrees were well-prepared and very good portion sizes. The restaurant was very crowded and noisy, but the food and service made it so you were able to overlook this. This is definitely a place... More

Our party of two made a reservation for 6 PM on a Sunday night and good thing we did, the place was packed. We had no problem sitting down right away and had a choice of sitting inside or out on their covered patio. We chose outside and it was lovely. They have fantastic margarita and an extensive tequila list.... More

Meet my girlfriends here for dinner and drinks. Agave is located in cabbage town which is a unique neighbourhood in itself. The decor and atmosphere is fun and unlike anything else I've seen in Atalanta. We had the salmon tostado and Guac to start. Both were good but the salmon tostado was the star of the meal! Great for sharing... More

We came here to celebrate my son's 28th birthday. It was ok but certainly not worth the price that they charge for what you get. My husband had the lamb and it was absolutely flavorless. Food tasted like the little mexican restaurant down the street from our home where you can get combination deals. We wanted to experience a new... More

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!) Since we were having trouble getting our car from the Omni (45 minute wait at valet), and then had horrible traffic, we were about 45 minutes late... More

When I say 'fancy', I usually mean 'expensive'. It's not your neighborhood mexican place for sure. The food is upscale, but very good. I would recommend this place for special occasions though, not for your average Friday night dinner. The street corn was an amazing appetizer, probably the highlight of the night. I need to figure out how to make... More

Agave is a gem of a restaurant in a chic but sketchy part of Atlanta. The area is safe and the restaurant serves excellent Mexican inspired dishes. The interior is super cool and outside dining is available in a private dining area. A must eat for upscale and unique dishes.
