    this was my first time and the food was sadly pretty bland. I ordered the pinto and green chile tostada and would not recommend. it was very loud at 8pm I felt like I was yelling across the table.

    Waited too long for our beverages, then for only one guest…the other waited even longer. The app menu was tedious. Have printed menus available for those who want them. The decor was ho hum (nothing special about it), and the food was not very tasty. The medallions were sparse pitiful with no “taste” for the price, the guacamole simply tasted like avacados. The Shrimp Spring Rolls were somewhat redeeming (very crispy and flavorful). Overall, pretty disappointing considering all the hype.

    Excellent choice for my birthday dinner. We were seated in a cozy candlelit table for two by the window! Great service, great food, great ambience ☺️ Agave is a great choice for whatever the day/night event is! I can’t wait to visit on a beautiful afternoon to enjoy drinks and food on the patio!

    The service was amazing, and food super tasty. Just beware that the parking situation is a nightmare, and the valet is really of no help. Park somewhere in the neighborhood and walk back to the restaurant.

    It was really busy but the experience was good overall. Agave is a staple in Atlanta so you’re always going to have a good time and good food! I do wish the parking situation was better. It took a while for everyone in my party to park because there was a line down the street to get into the parking lot.

    Had reservations for 7. Received a text at 7 that our table was ready. Weren’t seated til 7:30. No apologies. Guac was bland. Queso fundido was a mess of warm cheese. The meatballs had a weird taste. The apps were less than half eaten. Chicken soup was lukewarm. Top shelf marg tasted like jet fuel, not like a margarita. Another guest’s mashed potatoes was so heavy on garlic and she couldn’t eat it. The atmosphere was extremely loud, even in the separated room. Had to ask server to refill water. A waste of money and time. Verde in Brookhaven is tons better and not as expensive. Will never return.

    Food and drinks were great. We made a reservation and still ended up waiting about 20 minutes for our table. We were told there were no tables ready despite us reserving one and arriving on time. We were advised that we could wait at the bar and there were no seats available there either so we stood and waited for our table. The restaurant shouldn't offer reservations if they cannot honor them.
