Good but not great, 3/29/2010

Food, dessert, cocktails and service were all good but not stellar. Valet was nice and accomodating when I needed to get back in my car. We enjoyed our dinner but there was nothing outstanding about... any of it. I would go back but I don't really need to.

Great restaurant close to Grant Park, 11/05/2009

Cool alternative to SOS. Great bar and good service keeps me coming back year after year. They also keep expending everytime we eat there. keep it up.

Southwestern Heaven!

Definitely my favorite restaurant in Atlanta! The food is consistently excellent, the cocktails are the best in the city, and the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. And if you like tequila, they have over 100 varieties on hand! Agave also runs amazing specials all the time, so check out their website to get in on some good deals. My personal favorite deal is their 2 for 1 apps from 5-7pm every night at the bar. Can't beat that!

Great upscale Mexican food

I went to Agave a few nights ago. Parking is a bit of a gimmick with the valet (although it's good to have someone watch the cars). I had the pork shank. Very good. It was juicy and tenders. I also had the excellent breaded shrimp appetizer. Overall, service was good and it was a pleasant, if noisy, place.

try the green soup!

I recently went to a loft tour in cabbage town and they had food catered by agave and one of the items was a green soup. I dont remember the name but it was sooo delicious. I am just itching to go back and get some more.

Used to be my favorite restaurant

This was my special occasion restaurant. Casual enough to be comfortable, pricey enough to be "special". Birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas and Valentines Day, we went there all the time. I would get their grilled vegetable plate which in my opinion was the best vegetarian dish in the city. They have since gotten rid of it and replaced it with a vegetarian burrito. If I want a burrito, I will go to El Myr and pay half the price. Otherwise, great restaurant with GREAT margaritas

chili powder in everything

If you like chili powder, this is your restaurant. Everything tastes like chili powder. EVERYTHING. I won't eat here again.

Excellent!

The chips and salsa were fantastic as was the shrimp entree. Waitress was very attentive. My husband left a bit hungry after having the pork chop, but found the dish delightful.

Tequilla and Southwestern

Agave has great food, it has sort of a home cooked taste, and not too greasy. The margaritas are wonderful.

Southwestern

I was not disappointed with this restaurant. The name implies lots of tequilla and that is the truth. Excellent selection of tequilla and great food.

Southwestern yummm

Great intimate, adobe home style building-love the candle lit ombience. Constistantly good food at a fair price. Be ready to possibly wait on a table though at a really small bar.

Red Pepper Salmon

I've never been disappointed here. Great margaritas and terrific tequilla selection. The chips are made fresh and are so good I skip the salsa. For an entree, I recommend the red pepper salmon. Great atmosphere overall. A little on the pricey side.

Always a wait

But the food makes it worthwhile. You can find cheaper southwestern food, but probably not better.

Excellent Food

We eat here a couple times a year and the food is always excellent. The service is always good and the margaritas are excellent! Make sure to take advantage of there reservation list on the weekends or the wait can be longer and the bar is on the small side.

Exceptional!

This has been one of my favorite restaurants in the city since I first started going there 6 years ago. The food is always delicious and the service outstanding. I can't remember having a bad time there in the many times I've dined there over the years. They also have the best margaritas in Atlanta - I highly recommend the Top Shelf Margarita! I noticed some new items on the menu recently and I'm looking forward to trying them out soon. This is a great place to take people visiting from out of town! You really can't go wrong here.
