Regional American (Southwestern) | Downtown, Atlanta

Agave is always nice to visit. Happy Hour is always a great time to come! The waiters are usually accommodating and the bartenders are friendly and know how to handle the crowd with pleasure. We were there for an anniversary dinner and enjoyed our entrees and the drinks. Our server was amazing! The Lobster tail should also be available as an entree..This is one of the most delicious items on the menu! Great job! More

Ate at Molly B’s after taking a tour of Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The food was very good and our server was excellent. Took some of his recommendations and enjoyed our lunch. Nice, somewhat quiet place as this restaurant is basically only open to general public on non-event days at the stadium. If you’re looking for someplace unique in downtown Atlanta you should try this restaurant. We will definitely return, probably when we have guests visiting and want to show them Atlanta’s beautiful stadium! More

My boyfriend and I were celebrating our two year anniversary, and had a lovely time! The drink in the pictures is a yummy concoction of theirs with Kahlua, and some other yummy stuff in it. They let you take home that cup as a souvenir! Our waiter was amazing and so kind! He was efficient and smiley (I know it's silly, but I love it when people give you service with a smile.. not all employees do that). It was amazing customer service, and the view of course makes the date night all the more special. More

Perfect location on the porch. I had squash ravioli. Very good but the sauce was a little different from what I have had. My partner had beef tenders and gave them a 10. Other reviews noted service was slow. For us it was leisurely but attentive. Perfect. However this is not a fast food restaurant so we were happy. More

Great place to watch some sports and they are very accommodating with changing the channels to find the sporting event you want. Food was good and atmosphere was great. Service was good, although it took a while for them to come to our table at first even though it wasn’t busy while we weee there. After that, the service was great and everyone was nice and friendly. We are a Braves family, so this was a great place for us to celebrate our son’s birthday! More
