Agave Ratings and Reviews

The food was very good and our waiter who was very friendly, made an error on one of our orders of six. He brought the wrong meal and by the time he brought out the right meal , the rest of us were nearly done. One suggestion , because of the noise level I would have the waiter repeat the orders before he leaves the table.
The manger was very apologetic and he did everything he could to make the situation better. Mistakes are made, I would return and plan to. Great place other wise

We came for a family birthday, party of eight. Great food, drinks, service... but it was SO NOISY we could not talk. My three year old grandson could have stood on his chair and screamed at the top of his lungs and no-one would have noticed!
Hope the owners will work on some sort of noise abatement solution.

First visit to Agave and it was almost filled on a early Thursday evening. Parking was tight though there is valet parking if needed. Restaurant was larger inside than appeared from the outdoors photos online. Service was very good and the food was very good. My Baby Back Ribs were seasoned just right for me, but be too mild for some. My wife's Vegetarian dish was perfectly seasoned and cooked.

This was our second time dining at Agave and it was much better than the first. We dined at the bar this time and have decided we will always ask to sit there. The bartender was attentive and made perfect suggestions. The appetizer deals were great. Our favorite was the Fried Lobster Tails. We look forward to going back soon!

Normally have has excellent service this past experience in which we took an out of town friend the service was terrible . We got served waters then waited almost 10 minutes to get our drink orders . Then took another 10 to 15 minutes to get our food order in. The worst part was my husband and friend received their food and I finally made them eat after 5 minutes so their food didn't get cold . My food appeared late after they had finished their meals . No apology from our server or anyone . The food was bland this time just ordinary not the extraordinary that I'm used to having . Hope agave was just having an off night because this is one of my favorite restaurants.

Highly recommend reservations on a Saturday night. The place was packed and extremely noisy. We only waited about 10 minutes with a reservation. The staff was friendly and pleasant in spite of the overflow crowd. The stuffed trout was amazing! I would definitely return and order the same dish.
We have NEVER been disappointed with Agave!
This is one of our family favorites. We've been in Cabbagetown/Grant Park area since 1998, and Agave has been there with us for most of that time. Get the NY Strip or ANY of the fish dishes, but the fried chicken is our favorite. It is a great place for small to large groups and kids.
Agave was great from the moment we entered until we left. Our server (Jonathan) was very personable & knowledgeable. The street corn & chicken quesadias were great starters and my friend wanted a frozen mango margarita as she's allergic to strawberries. However the drink was prepared, she was going to be happy. But the drink was excellently prepared, crushed ice and all and she was thrilled. That kind of customer service is remarkable. Our entrees were not only delicious but filling. I only brought home half of my cayene chicken because I wanted to save room for dessert which was most delicious. And the food came out timely. Just as we finished appetizers, entrees came out. Such a smooth flo, and this was with us asking questions to boot! We are two couples who have a monthly FTD (First Tuesday Date night) so we can keep in touch and do so over great food. Agave is added to our list of favorites.

We always enjoy visiting Agave. Good service, easy parking and especially good food at reasonable prices. The only negatives are having to navigate Atlanta traffic (in our case from Cobb Co) and a fairly high noise level when the restaurant is busy.

Food was delicious. The server (Allison) was not empathic at all when it was pointed out that the bus staff had taken a unfinished drinks from the table. She was quick to ask if we wanted dessert and went out of her way not to address the issue. Thus the reason for a 3 star rating.

Great dinner and drinks as usual. Service was great and the margaritas are amazing. Food was perfect. It's a little loud and an energetic place, maybe not great if looking for a quiet dinner. Perfect if you want great food, drinks, and fun.

The food, service, atmosphere is fantastic. The restaurant has to move. As we left to retrieve our cars from the valet, the window was broken on the car with a laptop that was hidden was taken. Police were called and report was filed but killed a great meal.
Best birthday dinner and Westminster Girls reunion
This was my best experience by far at Agave! We had a large part (7) with an arrival time of 5:30. Three of the seven got caught in traffic and didn't arrive until between 6/6:30. However, management was extraordinarily accommodating. We had to change tables twice and had the most wonderful server ever, Heather. In addition to being a post birthday celebration for me, it was a chance for me and two of my Westminster Class of 1988 classmates to dine together once again. Since I live in Maryland and am only able to come home once or twice /year, I always enjoy my visits to Agave and Pappadeaux. Your staff's high level of service, in addition to the superb quality of the food, makes Agave on of my tried and true favorites. See you next time!
