Food very speedy even on happy hour. The food not good. Nachos came out as one big nacho all melted together not good flavor. Taquito tasted like just lime juice. Wings nasty. Calamari same just over cooked. Drinks just not up to standards for 15$ a pop for a mojito. Won’t visit again.

Pleasantly surprised at the quality and taste of the food at Agave Cocina & Cantina. We had a wonderful time and the service was wonderful. We all had a great time and loved the ambiance.
Our server even came outside and snapped a few photos of our group. We will definitely go back again!

Server was very friendly. We sat outside the patio area. It was dirty and sticky but it nice we cleaned it with our napkins it was fine. Food was yummy and drinks were fine. Lots of bugs flying around were we sat. Overall food was great and service was good.

Food was great! Our server was stressed, on a hurry for us to get out of there. We made reservations for a table of 4 (birthday) and he had set us up somewhere else. When manager told him, he was going to take our party, his attitude was not the greatest. He didn't bother to check back with us, when he brought out check he asked if we can order dessert.

I appreciate using high-quality and sustainable food products... That & a love for Hispanic cuisine brought our group there. While the staff was very friendly, our orders came out incorrectly, one friend's cocktail was way too sweet and our bill took forever. I was also up charged for asparagus that I didn't receive and wasn't informed of it.

The food and service was excellent. The only issue I,have the tables were to close. We, could not hold a conversation until the people on the table near us left.

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.

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!
