    The table side guacamole was pretty good, along with the taco dishes that two of our party ordered. The fajitas, while tasty, were more vegetables than meat. The soppapilla dessert was much better than the brownie/flan like cake we tried. The server was very attentive to our needs throughout the evening.

    Service was prompt and friendly. We ordered the table-side guacamole, which was good, but not great. The actual meal portions were very large - neither of us were able to comfortably finish our dinner, so there was no dessert ordered. In addition, the menu was out of date (my wife ordered her dinner partially for the plantains, which were no longer available but listed on the menu. Frozen margaritas come from a machine, so drinks aren't exactly "hand-mixed" either.

    I was sat in the front and was waiting for my friend to join. The server approached very fast and supplied me with food and beverage at a decent time rate. I wanted to move to the back so that I could watch the pre-season Bronco game and he helped me carry my items to the back. There were 2 servers standing at the bar chatting. I wasn't approached at all and had to waive down a server to order another drink, he said hold on let me grab your server. Other server came over and said oh you want this drink and I said yes. My friend showed up shortly after, we had to again wave down a server to order her a drink and our food that we had plenty of time to select. She ordered fajitas and I ordered shrimp with diablo sauce. Great food.

    My husband and I found this place by researching the Denver Restaurant Week menus. It is right nearby where our son has band rehearsals on Monday nights, so we can come back often. The food was delicious, with both traditional choices and more interesting entrees. My husband asked our server for some suggestions, and he had several favorites which he described to us. We like spicy food, so he chose a spicy shrimp dish. He loved it! I chose a chicken burrito, smothered with green chile. Since they did not have a spicy version of chile, I ordered some fresh chopped jalepenos on the side. My food was also delicious, although I unfortunately received a beef burrito instead of chicken. The server fixed it right away. We'll be back!

    The restaurant was scheduled to close to the public for a private event at 7pm. But they took a 6pm reservation via open table with no mention of this. When we entered the restaurant there was a sign on the door. We were baffled but proceeded inside. We told them that we had a reservation@6pm for 3 people. They seemed a bit surprised, confirmed that they were indeed closing at 7. No apologies, but the offer to get us in and out in an hour. It was a Sat night, we were out for an evening together, not for quick serve. End of story, never again.

    I made reservations through open table for this place based on price mostly. My mom was here visiting, and I wanted to take her and a group of friends to a good place. Had no idea I would walk out of there as impressed as I was. The food was fantastic, and plentiful for the price. Also, one of my friends is vegan, and they have vegan options that she as very happy with. We were a group of about 10, and they were very accommodating. We all raved about it when we left. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants quality food, drinks, and service, for not such a high price. Can't wait to go back!

    We went on a Monday night and were surprised to find out it was 2 for 1 margarita night. Try a Strawberry Mango mix...excellent. The food was very good...great sauces, nice presentation. Just the right amount of spice. Everything was perfectly cooked. The service was excellent as well...the whole staff was very friendly and welcoming.

    Have read about this place and wanted to go for awhile, but sorry to say I was disappointed. Not awful, but nothing special or memorable regarding service and food. Flavors, for the most part. were very bland and tired. Nothing 'fresh or interesting.' Had a fairly tasty spicy margarita, but that's the best I can say aside from the location is good, the bathroom was decent and I had no issues parking.

    Guacamole was good, but the main dishes were underwhelming. We got two shrimp dishes, and the shrimp didn't exactly meet my expectations for "large" as described on the menu. There were only about 8 shrimp per plate, and we definitely left hungry. We saw some fajitas come out to another table that looked better, so maybe we just ordered wrong. Service was good though.

    Like in real estate, location is everything. Our table was in the hallway with a view of the bathrooms. I don't think the staff has been properly trained. When our server brought the appetizers, he did not bring side plates. The next time we saw our server he delivered our dinner which barely fit on the table. He did not clear the dishes and then returned with our side dishes. Again, we squeezed them in and he left without clearing the table. What was delivered for our entrees were chicken breasts that had been grilled and then covered in a sauce. My friend took one bite of his chicken mole. I ate half of my chicken culichi. Our server asked if we wanted boxes for our leftovers. We said no. It tasted like fast food. We won't be back.

    We stopped in on the way to a show at Dazzle. Staff showed us to a table immediately. Server was friendly, polite and knew the menu. She even suggested a modification to accommodate our request. The food came quickly. It was presented well and tasted very good. Portions were just right; neither stingy nor overwhelming. Moderate noise from the adjoining bar.

    The chicken mole dish I ordered was very bland. Worst mole I've ever tasted. Two of my son's were ok with their orders. My third son couldn't eat his. We had to ask for water, then had to ask the water guy to find our waitress so we could order more drinks. The margaritas were good. I complained that I did not get the plantains that were supposed to come with my meal. I happen to really like plantains. The waitress and manager, especially the manager, acted shocked that I would expect a discount for that and the manager was quite rude about it. Overall, an expensive mistake I won't repeat.

    We tried 100% de Agave for the first time during opening night of Restaurant Week, February 2014. They certainly live up to their name and offer 100s of different tequilas and drinks. Our prefix menu offered a good variety of classic Mexican dishes. The house margarita and the salsas were delicious. Our food was good although I'd like to go back and try something different off the regular menu. I'm sure places get super busy during Restaurant Week, so what they offered on the menu seemed to be easy options that were premade and fried. And by no fault of her own, our server was very distracted. Our food was never late, but the poor girl spent the whole evening running her feet off and barely spoke to us apart from taking our orders.

    After a return trip to Mexico last year, we have been trying to find a location here in Denver that would have food similar to the authentic food we had in Mexico. 100% de Agave has it!!! Plus, the Silver Coin Margaritas are spot on to a location we loved in Mexico. Can't wait for our next visit to 100% de Agave.
