I’ve been here many times and this is the first time I’ve not been pleased with my meal. I took the suggestion of the server and order the Special of the Day. It sounded delicious. Redfish with corn salsa over grits. The fish was tasteless. I let the manager know and was given another choice. That dish was what I was accustomed to having at Agave.

Agave is the best place to eat. The food and drink prices are great and the ambiance is perfect when out with a date. I highly recommend Agave for everyone.

I planned a dinner to Agave with 2 of my girlfriends on Friday evening. The service was great and the food was even better! I NEVER have an issue whenever I come to Agave and I will be back again soon.

Our experience was wonderful! We ate here before going to the Fox. We got there late because of traffic and was worried we wouldn’t get our food fast enough but the waitress was wonderful and our food was out promptly! It was delicious! My husband had the filet medallions and I had the special which was Rock fish and grits. Yummy!! Would definitely recommend and we will be back!

The food was fabulous. Our server, Tyna was awesome. Very accommodating and made great suggestions. The place is very open, crowded and loud to recommend for a romantic dinner, but food and service are top notch

It’s a very crowded restaurant virtually every night. Our server was good but overloaded. Two of our four entrees felt like they were dry and had been waiting for awhile before we got them. It’s kind of hard to mess up enchiladas but these were particularly uninspired. So it was an okay dinner but not a special one. And it’s our second experience like that at Agave so we probably won’t try it again.

We truly enjoyed our experience at Agave! We were a party of 6 and everyone enjoyed it! The food was absolutely delicious and the service was top notch! My hubby had the lamb and both myself and my daughter-n-law had the stuffed trout. Both were delicious! We plan to return to try some of the other appetizing dishes they offer.

Best Southwestern style scallops I have ever had. I also couldn't believe how well the sauteed collards complemented the whole entree!

We had a fabulous evening at Agave. Our waiter, Zack, was very attentive, and professional. The Food was outstanding. We met Tim, one of the owners, he made us feel very welcome and appreciated. We had dinner prior to an outing to Fox theater, and Agave made the entire evening even more special.

We have been eating in Agave for over 10 years. I don’t think I’ve ever had a bad meal or bad service or a bad drink. Management does an excellent job of overseeing all the operations so everything run smoothly. This is our go to restaurant for family events anniversaries and birthdays. Our last meal was Halloween night sitting in front of the fireplace at a requested table was romantic and delicious. I would strongly recommend you eat here.

Been enjoying Agave since 5/2003. Quality and ambiance, always a ten! Service was the worst ever this time. Server did not pay attention to details, but we still thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

I am always blown away by the amount of food the 3 chefs put out of this kitchen, They always do a consistent, great job. The staff are all friendly and good at what they do. I love this restaurant- but I do hate the noise level. When its busy, its LOUD. I mean really loud.

Awful table! Hit by every server who walked by our table. I finally had to move my purse before the straps were ripped from it. Despite having a reservation for two months, we were seated at the worst table (due to location and the fact they seated 5 at a 4 top which put a chair in the walkway - unfortunately next to my chair).

Soup was the smallest amount of soup I’ve ever seen in a bowl. The soup was good but gone in 5 bites.

Generally, a bad experience. I probably won’t be back again.
