Had a very pleasant dining experience at Agave. It was a birthday celebration for my brother & myself. The food and drinks were very good and we didn't tell them it was a birthday celebration and they brought us a free dessert just the same. Staff was very friendly and accomodating.

Server was bad. Not very kid friendly for kids needing a high chair. The girl tried to sit us in a booth at first.... we had 3 kids under the age of 2... then she tried to sit us right next to where they come out with all the hot food, we're already squished into the spot. We ended up moving to outside for more room and had to move all of our stuff out there ourselves w/ the kids in tow. She was slow, brought us out a stained water pitcher that made the water look brown. Other than the server, the food was amazing. I loved all the options for sides. Most typical Mexican restaurant you only get rice & beans, not here. The sweet potato fries were good, some with the corn, etc. typical pricing I would say. Nice spot at Kent Station w/ the outdoor seating.

Not impressed with service. Not offered refills. Did not pick up plates. Once meal was served did not come back to check on us and did not offer water refills. We were a party of 10 for my daughters 21st bday. Staff was not helpful in drink options or food suggestions. With all the restaurants around I don’t think that I would come back. Sorry

This is as much a review of open table as agave. I get to the establishment and I had no reservation. I received numerous reminders from open table and they apparently didn’t do the same for the restaurant. The whole premise of the app is to have a reservation when you get to the restaurant. Complete fail.

Rushed by the staff from start to finish and they weren't real busy and it was only mid-point of the dinner timeframe. We were rushed to order, and the meal came out with the appetizer in under 5 minutes. Fajitas were obviously precooked and reheated, without the proper time to even make them hot. Chile rellenos were also reheated to only "warm". The waiter dropped off the check while we were only just beginning to eat and said "no rush". Very disappointed and unlikely to return again for dinner.

I had the bacon wrapped jalapeños and spicy prawn appetizers. Both were very large portions and delicious. Just enough spice to let you know it was there without disrupting the wonderful flavors of the dish. The menu is well labeled for gluten free items. Thank you for this!

Also, my greatest of thanks to staff for their understanding and trust of me when I realized I left my wallet at home. This restaurant does not accept Apple Pay and trusted me to go home and return to pay the check. Gracias!

I had family in from out of town. My sister is a fantastic cook & loves Mexican & Tex-Mex food. So I was a little nervous to bring her to Agave. But she loved the food as much as the rest of my family! And my one year old granddaughter loved the sweet potato fries!

I booked our reservation for a party of 4 through OpenTable. When we arrived the restaurant hostess informed us that Agave does not utilize or recognize reservations made through the app. What gives?? Ultimately, we were seated quickly at an open table and the rest of our dinner experience was very good.

The food was pretty good. Their open table app was down so they didn't have any reservations. Luckily they had a table. Pretty noisy. Was there for a birthday but they had no candle to put in the dessert or anything for someone's birthday. Didn't really seem to care that it was.

It was busy so we were told they would not be able to refill our drinks for a long time. I asked for meal with no corn and no cheese due to allergies and my burrito had a ton of corn in it. Forget even trying to get that fixed. My friend had to go to bar to get vodka because there was none in her drink she ordered.

I was here with a small group of retired friends. It was the first time any of us had been to this particular restaurant. The table was set up and ready when we arrived. The menu is varied for lunch and everyone was able to pick something they liked. Several of the group commented that they were happy with the sourcing of the food and the selections for those on restricted diets. The service was attentive and accommodating. Prices were reasonable. All-in-all we were a happy group.

We had a group of 12 including 7 kids going all the way down to 1 year old. Wait staff was absolutely wonderful and very attentive--even caught an error in one order for someone who had to be gluten free and returned it to the kitchen before it could be served. Food was EXCELLENT! Would highly recommend!

Restaurant wasn't prepared for our table of 10. We sat at 3 separate tables outside. Not exactly a great dining experience for our group to be at 3 different tables not even by each other. Waiter was great, but wasn't much fun for our party.

I write this knowing I experienced this restaurant on one of the busiest nights of the year for the restaurant industry. With that said, I feel like it was any other busy night for Agave. The staff was friendly and for the most part attentive. I did not receive chips and salsa which I thought was a given for any Mexican restaurant. Turns out it was over looked for my table which was eventually corrected. That was the only downfall and nothing I was remotely upset about. The food and drinks were great. Looking forward to adding Agave to my Mexican list, probably very near the top!

Good thing I called ahead 5 minutes prior to my reservation time to tell them that parking was taking a bit longer than expected so we will be a few minutes late. Good thing that I called because my reservation was nowhere to be found. The woman on the phone told me that she would try to hold tables but that was hard because there were sooooo many people waiting. When I walked in, there was no one at the entrance waiting for a seat.

I get it, it was new years eve and everyone was just counting down the minutes until they could get off but seriously, this was horrible. Food was bland. Tacos tasted like dogfood, the only saving grace was the margaritas.


I Will not use opentable to request accommodation here as they do not check their systems and make it seem like it is your fault..... Update your reservation system. ask if people would like to be seated at the bar during happy hour instead of rolling your eyes when we ask to switch seats. Also, my fiancees seat in the bar was bumped all night every time your servers walked by... shame, I wish we had gotten the same amount of attention as that chair... we waited soooo long for food, our check, and a box for our leftovers...

Booked a reservation for lunch before Disney On Ice- we had 2- 4 yr olds with us.
Great with kids. They provided us with carrots when we asked for a veggie to go with the kids menu.
The owner gave us personalized service.
A good lunch!
