We went at a slow time and the parking lot was full. I have no idea what they do at peak hours. That aside, we enjoyed the food and margaritas. Friendly, knowledgeable wait staff. Playground for the kids in the back. One starter + 2 entres + 2 margaritas = $45

The other reviews gave us high hopes for this place, but we were disappointed. The chips were stale, the soup tasted like it was missing something.

We went to Agave for happy hour expecting great margaritas on a Mexican Restaurant. I was not impressed with the margaritas. After the happy hour, we asked for tequila shots and we were charged over $7.5 for each shot!!! The tequila served was NOT premium tequila. As for the food, it was good, but not great. We had tamales and... More

This is the second Dominican restaurant with the first in Santo Domingo. The food is seriously great Mexican food with a great staff and 2:1 margaritas on Mondays. The salsa is full of flavor, but not hot and so spicy it burns your lips. The enchiladas in tomatillo sauce will scorch everything in its path. The flautas are a favorite... More

It's not real Mexican food but is much better than the typical Texmex, there are many different options They have a nice place for kids in the location at Bella Vista in avenue Sarasota They have to improve the desserts that are inedible

My only thinking is it's a little overpriced and the place could use some improvements specifically aesthetics. Otherwise I liked it.

I went to this place after reading reviews online and it sure didn't disappoint me. They have both an indoor and outdoor seating area. Not a great place to try the beers but good if you like trying other food. I tried their cilantro margaritas and they sure didn't disappoint me. In food I tried what the chef called winner... More
