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
Always great food and outstanding service here! A family favorite 😉
We just love this place. Great food, fast and kind service, and a fun, laid back atmosphere.
We had a wonderful Christmas Eve lunch with the sweetest and most attentive waitress! Not our first time and definitely will not be our last - favorite Mexican restaurant in Kent!
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.
Brunch was great! On the weekends, they have $5 bloody marys and mimosas.
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!
Food was awful. Steak over cooked. Meals came out at different times. Very disappointed. Have had good food there prior but tonight was a big flop.
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!
Food was delish. First time there for some of us. It was a big hit all around. We'll be coming back for sure.
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.
Great food, great atmosphere! Good service and was good for the whole family!
It was quiet enough to hear everyone else talking. Nice atmosphere
Pre-funk prior to a concert. The staff accomidated eight of us. Really good food with attentive staff.
Good for adult birthdays
we had a party of 9 for a special birthday, the food was delicious and we had a very attentive waitress. Happy hour is great!
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.
We met friends on a Sunday late afternoon. We had not intended to stay in the bar, but we did. It was a great happy hour and excellent service!
the service was great and the food was excellent! We chose this restaurant because of its natural and organic ingredients.
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 made the reservation. Me and my wife ate there. When I got home I got an email that said my reservation was cancelled and I did not get my points.
Food was OK and staff was OK. Nothing to write home about.
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.
Dinner was fantastic. The food is so fresh and the wait staff is top notch! We love coming here especially in the summer for outdoor dining!
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!
Had Father's Day Brunch. There were 6 of us plus a baby. Kelly took really good care of us-great service and wonderful food. Thank you.
Great Mexican find!!! Crispy fish tacos were amazing!!!
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.
A bit of flair for Mexican food. Keep coming back for the quesadilla but thesides - wow! Love jicama and cilantro slaw.
I have been to agave several times now, I'm always impressed with the service and food😀
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!
Service was top notch
Food was very very good
A bit of background noise (typical with atmosphere)
Prices were good 12-15$ entrees
We will be back!
Brought a large group for my wife's birthday. Excellent food as always. Staff is friendly and attentive. Agave has quickly become a family favorite!
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...
Our group of 6 enjoyed and evening dinner. We would recommend this restaurant to family and friends.
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!
We came here before a hockey game to get some dinner. Our server let us split an entree. We split the carne Assada tacos. It was delicious.
We eat out 60% of the time, went here for brunch on the weekend.
It takes a lot for us to be frustrated with a restaurant, we wanted our first experience here to be great...100%, because we are close to Kent Station...It was a 30% like-ability for us.
Maybe we'll try again in a few months, but for now we'll hit Agave...their sister restaurant in Issaquah....yup a long drive from Kent...but worth it.
My mom and I were looking forward to trying Agave out without my 2 yr old. I wasn't sure how busy it was going to be, so I quickly made open table reservations. When we went to check in, the hosts didn't really seem to know what it was. When she asked if we wanted to be seated right away, I guess she didn't hear me when I said yes. So instead she sat a 4 top first that didn't have reservations, then we told her we did indeed want to be seated. But now we got stuck sitting in the booth by the door looking at the back of the bar seating. LAME!
Our seemed very busy and rushed. Our drinks took about 20 mins after we ordered them. Food took longer. But it was worth the wait, yummy! Our server was very nice i saw she had patio seating too, not easy. I will definitely be back again. Just work on the hosts a little more
Good food but took long time to come.
