Stopped in for a brief lunch while house hunting in Sedona. I did enjoy the chicken tortilla soup and the Mexican salad. While the food quality was good, the cost for soup, salad, one beer and tip was$45+ To me that is PRICEY.

We enjoyed our visit to 89 Agave Cantina. Great margaritas and fajitas. Outdoor seating is a must, weather permitting. Great location in Sedona, lively environment and music.

The food was delicious. They have a very tasty green salsa with interesting ingredients. Service was excellent. The waitress really knew her menu - which is very important. Fun atmosphere.

We made reservations here for the night we arrived after a long flight so wanted something fairly casual, quick and reasonable. We waited at the bar because we were early. The hostess let us know that too and rather than attempt to seat us early, she reminded us, frankly, what time our reservations were for. To start, the list of margaritas was overwhelming with so many specialty versions and way too many ingredients, and WAY overpriced. Sorry, $16 for a margarita, even in a tourist town is crazy. We had to ask for a basic margarita as there wasn't even one the menu. It was okay, but after 2 that night, I question if there was any tequila in them at all. There was a private function in the back room so only the main room was seating for dinner. Once we sat, it was bright and loud and uncomfortable. Our waiter rushed over and said "Chips, salsa and cheese?" He said it so quickly, no description, which made us think this is what they start you off with. We hadn't even looked at the menu yet. We were like "okay, sounds good." Cheese? What did that mean? I said "you mean Queso?" and he said, as he was walking away, yeah, Queso. Out comes chips (tasted basic from a bag, not heated), a big bowl of queso, and a "flight" of guacamole and salsa. We hadn't asked for guac, nor the fancy flight with all kinds of toppings from mango to pomegranate. Had we asked for guacamole, we would have wanted a good fresh, plain guacamole. Same with the salsas. But, we were hungry so we ate it. And ate it. And we were charged for it all. In fact, we didn't see our waiter again for a long time. So much so that we weren't even hungry for dinner by then. Once we tracked him down, we only ordered two apps to split, which were so so. Sorry, you can find a better place for Mexican. If you want touristy overpriced, this is your place.

This may well have been one of the worst meals I have eaten in my life. The food was cold, the meat in my tacos was kind of gross... really, nothing was appealing. We would have sent it back or left if we hadn't been so tired from a long day of travel. There are a lot of great places to eat in Sedona and this is not one of them.

We came to Sedona for the first time over our kid's Spring Break vacation. 89Agave was the first restaurant that we ate at and we ended up eating there a few additional times during our stay. The food was so good! The staff is super friendly! Highly recommend!

Enjoyed our dinner as we always do at 89 Agave. Only criticism is that our guest ordered a glass of wine & it took forever ( it seemed) for him to receive it. Food is great and service was wonderful other then the wine hiccup!

Disappointing experience. Food was horrible and they even messed up a simple rum and coke order. We ordered a simple taco salad and the lettuce served was chunks of the core. Salad was bland. Taco chops for appetizer were over seasoned.

It was great! Service was very good, food was excellent and per my husband, the house margarita was superb - freshly squeezed limes and smooth tasting tequilla. Creative guacamole and a fresh quesadilla for him and a chopped salad for me - everything was so fresh and portions were generous making this spot a very good value for lunch. We ate inside; however, they have a nice patio dining option all right in the heart of downtown Sedona...ole!

We enjoyed our meal at 89Agave. The service was excellent and the food was quite tasty. Everyone particularly liked the queso dip. Be aware that if you order the cheese crisp it is MASSIVE! Easily shareable with two or three.

The place was crowded with high energy. We had a guacamole and salsa flight, after the tastings we were too full for dinner so we shared the street tacos. They were delicious we chose a sampling of shrimp and carnitas. The margaritas were tasty and there was a good selection of beer.
Our waiter checked in with us frequently. Big screen TVs all around, this would be a good place to watch football and/or basketball (march madness!).

We arrived a few minutes before our reservation only to be told that they had made a mistake by allowing the reservation to be made. We were told it would be a 15-20 minute wait, but they weren’t really sure about how long. When I looked online, they still showed reservations available. I said they needed to change it. The manager said that he was too busy to go back fo his office and deal with the computer.
We walked into the bar to watch the football game while we waited. There was one table available that was filthy. We stood by it for a few minutes, never saw anyone. Finally, walked over to the manager and asked for it to be cleaned. He said that we could not sit there, someone else has been waiting for that bar table. He was rude and made no apology for his error. Finally, was seated after standing by the door. Waitress was inattentive and uninterested. Manager never came by or apologized. Food was good, thank goodness after that nightmare. Chips and salsa are $6, never seen a Mexican restaurant charge for chips and salsa! A bug crawled out from under my plate. I killed it with my lemon wedge. The restaurant is clearly mismanaged, but the food is excellent. Maybe the chef needs to take over everything. E

Agave89 seemed to be the only restaurant where one could walk in on New Year's eve. And that wasn't a bad thing at all! The chimichanga and enchiladas were perfect. We took some churros home to celebrate the evening with champagne and that was a very nice combo!

The salsa flight and street tacos were unbelievable! Fresh ingredients and wow flavors. We tried four different street tacos. The protein in all of them was fork tender, juicy and flavorful. The margaritas were creative and hit the spot! Our server, Hudson, was attentive, knowledgeable, and super friendly.
