After reading so many five star reviews, I was disappointed by both the ambience and the food. Sitting outside on the sidewalk was fun, but the indoor option was oddly plain. The food options were ordinary. It seemed as though the margaritas were the central focus. We ordered their special margarita, and while the flavor was good, there was barely any alcohol in it. I'm the lightest drinker of the group and rarely finish a whole beer or glass of wine before feeling too affected by the alcohol, but that night I finished my whole margarita and didn't even feel it. Our tacos were ordinary and I must say the servings were quite small for the price. We ordered their special guacamole, and maybe 1/3 of a cup of guacamole came out - for the four of us?! It looked like half of a small avocado. I was embarrassed because I selected the restaurant and made the reservation. I just don't understand the difference in ratings and experiences between us and others. It wasnt BAD; it just wasn't above average.
Gorgeous views of the Sedona mountains..we loved the outside patio and the food was absolutely delicious. The restaurant is in the middle of the downtown area surrounded by quaint shops. Loved our experience..highly recommend!
The food was okay, not great. The inside seating appeared loud and outside is street side though the view of the surrounding mountains was nice. I thought the place did not live up to the reviews I was reading.
Enjoyed the ceviche and fish tacos. We sat outside - would have been too noisy to fine inside. Loud music. Fun place though with good food.
This place was a waste of my time as well as my families time....I made reservations for dinner, we arrived early, they seated us right away, they have us menus, and nothing else.... As we sat there waiting for someone to take our order...15 mins we watched them seat three tables of people...25 mins, the bus boy saw that we were waiting then looked away, we tried to get the waitress 's attention no luck, 40 mins....we watched as they seated another family and served drinks to the two tables that they seated after us.... that's when i asked to see the manager, they came back and said that they didn't know where he was, he had left the premises....AT DINNERTIME???? I don't think so, they didn't want me to let the man ager know that they were ignoring is so instead, i told them that we were leaving and we did. I could see that they didn't care. So we walked across the street for dinner we went for a fantastic dinner at the, the Cowboy Restaurant.
DO NOT EAT AT.... 89AGAVE CANTINA....
We are from San Diego coming to visit Sedona for s few days. We are very picky about Mexican food as San Diego has some pretty awesome food. We were worried it would be a tourist spot where people are not sure of what real Mexican food should taste like but we were very much happy with our meals. The service was very friendly and spot on. The food was delicious. I am pretty sure the chips are made there they are fresh. Try the sweet corn appetizer it is delicious. I had the taco salad all fresh ingredients and my family seemed to enjoy their food too. We know of s good place to go now!
We ordered the guacamole and it was fine, nothing remarkable, just fine. Tasted like Wholly Guacamole that you find in the grocery store. We also ordered the queso dip and it was very Velveeta-ish. Again, fine but not the level of cuisine we were hoping for. The vegitarian enchiladas were good. The cocktails were also good. Overall it was not terrible but we wished we would have gone elsewhere.
Unfortunately the visit was ruined by bad service. The food was very good and a charming place in Sedona. Too bad, I would have loved to recommend this place.
Decent fresh food. Ceviche was supposed to have pulpo (octopus) but had squid instead. Not very tart as I really enjoy it. Everyone else's food hit the mark.
Great chips served hot with a nice salsa.
Margaritas - just so-so for Sedona's high standard for margaritas.
Really delicious food with great wait staff. Fun atmosphere for great casual dining. Margaritas rocked!
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.
This place! It was a perfect ending to a perfect vacation in Sedona! Just wish we had found it sooner! Definitely recommend!
the food ws delicious. We went there twice during our short stay in Sedona!
Excellent food and drinks. Service was attentive and helpful. Outdoor seating ambiance was very good.
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.
Great location, good selection on the menu, family friendly!
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.
Great Salsa. Food and atmosphere is good.
The food was excellent! Very active restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating, great authentic mexican cuisine, and great margaritas. Service was very good except our server was overly busy. Will definitely go again next time we're in Sedona.
Nice outdoor seating in front, side & back. We had the fajita burrito and chimichanga. Both were good, authentic. Chips and salsa are not complimentary. Service good.
Poor service. Overpriced. You better off going somewhere else!
We really enjoyed the food. We loved the salsa!
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!
Good quick food in downtown Sedona with good service.
Great fresh food. Wonderful atmosphere, right in the heart of uptown!
Very yummy food and good location!
Nice staff. Food was ok. Great location.
Fun first night in Sedona. Margarita hit the spot! Very tasty food to end a long travel day.
Great fast service and delicious food. Large portions!
The food was nothing to be amazed with and the service was a bit slow.
Bottomless chips and salsa were a great start to a delicious meal. Loved the chicken and steak fajitas. Service was excellent.
Great food! Desserts yummy!
Service was not as good as usual but I think they had less staff available. Usually service is very good just an off night.
We enjoyed a delicious meal at a table outdoors with a beautiful view of the mountains surrounding Sedona.
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!
Good food and convenient
