Lousy food; worse service and watered down drinks. A waste of time and money. The drinks took forever to arrive and were tasteless. The food was not much better. The service was basically nonexistant.

Our party of 6 went there at 630pm on a Sunday night..not too busy at that time, but throughout our meal the folks were streaming in.
Subtle furnishings...soft salsa music in the background..soft lights = great ambiance.
The food was plentiful (though more costly than many other Mexican restaurants in the area), and very fresh. This establishment offers both Mexican and Spanish food..paella for instance.
My fish tacos with black beans/rice on the side were delicious..very mild fish. Hubby said his "pescado verde" (grilled tilapia in green sauce w/ rice and veggies) was the best tilapia he's ever had!
Others had the pork carnitas, which they said were delicious also.

Service was attentive and not "pushy".

Only down side was those who had mixed drinks said they were pretty watered down; i.e. "jack & coke" and "the blue agave margarita".

This restaurant is right on the corner and has big windows with the world whizzing by if you need a distraction from your dinner-date!

Definetly would patronize this restaurant again! Oh! Gave up chips for lent, but those who ate the fresh ones with the salsa said they were delish..fresh and crunchy!

Most Mexican restaurants are almost interchangeable. They create nice-tasting Mexican food that you won't find in any real restaurant in Mexico - they cater to our "idea" of Mexican food. This place offers some of that, but also some really good authentic dishes, in case you want to venture out. Their mole is quite good - you can make better if you spend 5 hours doing it at home, but why bother. They have an excellent tequila menu and even margarita drinkers should know that the right tequila matters. Reasonably priced and fun.

The place has a nice setting and atmosphere, but the food was flavorless and needed additional seasoning to bring out the flavor. A little pricey for food that needs seasoning by the patron.

My husband and I have been to Agave with friends for lunch and dinner -- same menu for both. They serve Spanish and Mexican food, and among us all, we've sampled some of each, and all have been excellent. The Scallops Costa Brava is unusual and particulary good. We've tried the burritos, enchiladas, soups, and fish, and we and our friends have found everything to be great! Service is friendly and attentive, and the atmopsphere is pleasant. The restaurant is on a busy corner, but there is plenty of free parking at a city garage around the corner. Prices are a bit high, but they have a $17 coupon in the Entertainment book, and we regulary get postcards for $18 off, making this a very well-priced place to eat.
