Went with 7 co-workers (including my boss) for dinner while attending a conference in Atlanta. Menu included wide variety of options, including vegetarian options. Food was excellent: well prepared and fresh. Noise level was too high to include everyone in our conversation around the table. Waited almost 45 minutes - standing in front of the front door - even though we had a reservation because the staff had seated guests without reservations before we arrived. This was embarrassing for me because my boss was part of our party.

Every time I go to Agave I ask myself why I don't go more often. The menu is incredible, with something for everyone, the service is relaxed while also being right there when you need them and super easy going, I also love how warm and cozy the space is.

Have been to Agave several times and they are consistently attentive to the guest without hovering. I'd trade good service over food quality any time. But you don't have to at Agave, the food is great no matter what you order. Substitutions or special instructions are no problem. Beer list is a little limited. Many entrees are spicy so be careful if you have a low temperature palate. Free valet parking also adds to the positive experience.

Made reservation on Opentable with a comment about being a first date, that information was not relayed to the server (not a big deal). The fish tacos came as a burrito ( ... interesting ... ). Sat upstairs which was awesome!!! The proprietors wine list has some ridiculous wines for the $. Food was all good. Wine was Great. Service was good. Would recommend to others to enjoy.

Food was excellent as usual. Service was slow with pre-dinner cocktail arriving at same time as entree was served. Although special occasion was mentioned at time of reservation, this was not acknowledged by anyone at the restaurant.

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 to go for a return visit.

Once again the food was outstanding. We will definitely be back and enjoy our meal every time we are here. However we were less than impressed with the waitress and hostess this time. We usually have Mandi who is delightful. Our waitress spent a lot of the evening talking to the table next to us, a couple who also worked at the restaurant. I noticed the hostess spending a lot of time at that table as well.

An excellent restaurant! The noise level is not tolerable if you need a quiet dining spot, so just be prepared! It is one of the loudest places we've dined outside of a cafeteria in a school lunchroom. Yet we love the food!

Enjoyed the food very much and the service was decent. Went for a friend's birthday and they brought out desert for them. The server was a little pushy but nothing out of the ordinary. Had a ton of fun and loved the food. Very unique taste and would definately go again if given the chance.

We went to celebrate by husbands birthday on Oct 5th. We always go to Agave to celebrate big occasions. The server did not ask us why we were there, he did not mention any specials for the day and he did not mention any of his favorite dishes. We have been going to Agave for years and this is the first time we have received service this way. Also the food was not great and my husband had to send his meal back. We honestly will not patron Agave for awhile, which is disappointing because we love their margaritas, key lime pime and the fried chicken.

Had dinner to entertain some friends visiting from DC. We had an amazing time and really enjoyed the food and drinks. It's a lively environment and The ambiance is great for a date night or hanging with friends. Not a place for kids.

Fried lobster tail was out of this world delicious. My hubs got the fried chicken and he said it was great. I got the swordfish and it was hands down the best swordfish I've ever eaten. Our server was very nice and showed up when needed without being overbearing.
