After having enjoyed really outstanding Mexican food in places like Edinburgh and NYC, I've dropped my former prejudice about eating Mexican food outside of the Southwest. Agave is a great example of how my liberation has paid off. This bustling bistro was crowded, but we...More

Wonderful Mexican food, great drinks, attentive waitstaff. A great place to gather with friends and family. The upstairs dining area does not allow for wheelchair access, and there are many steps to take going there. Whenever we are in the mood for excellent Mexican food,...More

Salsa, nachos, burittos were all rather bland and nothing special. We have tried it three different times and walk away dissapointed. Maybe the beverages make it better for others(?!)...but it doesn't do it for us.

Northern new England is not known for great Mexican food, so I was surprised by the delicious chicken soup I had one recent cold windy day. Tasted homemade. The grilled romaine salad was nicely grilled, thoughtfully split in 2 by Jon, the server.
