Agave Ratings and Reviews
AGAVE does it again! We tried an array of appetizers as our full meal, and enjoyed every delicious bite! The atmosphere is always great, and the service is attentive. My friend enjoyed a perfectly made margarita (after sharing that a few in the past weren't that terrific), and we hardly left food to carry home. The chips & salsa are always a perfect start to a delightful evening! GREAT JOB Agave. Stay amaaaaazing!!
This was, heretofore, an Atlanta favorite, but my recent visit left a very bad taste in my mouth--no pun intended. While the food was delicious, the service was absolutely horrible. Drinks arrived fifteen minutes after the appetizer; our entrees arrived apart from each other. The restaurant was filled to capacity and there were several large parties present--but the management hadn't seemed to notice. The wait staff was stretched far too thin. It took more than twenty-five minutes to receive and settle the final bill--despite a large number of patrons waiting for our table. There are many excellent restaurants in Atlanta that offer excellent service. This used to be one of them.
I have been to Agave many times over the last 5 or more years. The food has been consistently great. The service has been very good with few exceptions. When making reservations we have always been seated at the time we asked for. The ambience is awesome even though a little loud but we like that! Please keep on with what you are doing!
I was pleasantly surprised with Agave's wonderful food and customer service. We were seated promptly (after arriving about 20 minutes prior to our reservation) and our waiter was excellent. He was friendly and offered recommendations for our drinks and entrees. My margarita was perfect (not overly sweet and chemically-tasting) and the special swordfish was out of this world delicious. We also ordered the ceviche appetizer and key lime dessert - again, both were phenomenal. I highly recommend Agave and can't wait to come back.
I usually love this restaurant and haven't been in awhile. However, I not sure if it was the meal choice or a change in Chef, as my most recent visit was lackluster compared to previous visits. The salsa was delicious but the mountain trout stuffed with crawfish was a bit bland in my opinion. The staff was great and atmosphere was a bit loud and dark.
Adam, our server, was wonderful and the food was cooked perfectly, spicy but not overwhelming. I had the tenderloin medallions which were tender enough to cut with my fork---grilled zucchini and mashed potatoes were awesome. My husband had the barbacoa taco--enjoyed it greatly. The calamari was some of the best we've ever had! We don't get down here often enough...always a great meal.
Food was great! A little noisy but not bad enough not to come back! Our waitress was not very attentive and not much convo, seemed rushed. We've been there several times and this was the first time we've had a not so good server. We love this place and will be back!
My wife and I went for the first time this evening. Our server was great. Appetizers were a mixed bag (guac was not dynamic and mussels were a little meh), but the entrees made up for it as they were very tasty. We will definitely come back again and try some different apps.
Agave used to be one of my favorite places, especially for my birthday. Our experience on Sunday, my birthday, was hugely disappointing. The server rarely stopped at our table, but merely breezed by or had me turn around in my seat to speak to him. The food was not really hot and dessert was not offered. A shame because I'll probably just seek another option in the future.
My husband and I dined at Agave on Saturday, July 22nd, for the third time. And, they did not disappoint. The decor is attractive. The food is flavorful and attractively plated. The service is excellent. Food Recommendations: Cayenne Onion Rings (a little warmth in a very good way), Guacamole, Cayenne Fried Chicken, Street Corn, Shrimp Anejo, Grits, and of course, Traditional Margarita and Jalepeno Margarita. Heather was the Server, and exuded friendliness and helpfulness. She was attentive without hovering. She made the dining experience perfect. Agave has become one of our favorite restaurants! Look forward to returning in August, bringing our son and daughter-in-law who are visiting from Wisconsin.
Service really ruined an otherwise fine meal. Waited 15 minutes after our OpenTable reservation time to be seated, which is uncommon in my experience. Waited 50 minutes for or appetizer, not exaggerating, while other tables around us received app and dinner while we waited. Drinks took 20 minutes to arrive. The food was pretty good, but terrible service and management ruined my wife's birthday dinner which should have been a special experience.
I purchased a Groupon meal for only $39. This included guacamole, an appetizer to spit and two entrees. The food was great but the service was dismal. I have eaten here many times in the past and always had good service and the food never disappoints. There was a particularly loud table of 6 or so folks that we shared a waiter with, and they seemed to need a lot of attention, so maybe that is the reason the waiter didn't pay us any attention. The waiter never checked in with us after we got our food, so no offer of more drinks or water. We waited a really long time for the check as well. It will be a long time before I will be able to convince my friend to go back there.
