My wife was upset that a party of 4 people were seated in the next booth when there dozens of empty tables and several remote booths open. There was supposed to be physical separation during the Coronavirus outbreak.
As far as Mexican places go, this was below average in my opinion. Small portions, dishes quite not as traditional as you would expect, they have some flair. I dunno. Wasn't good.
It was fine... food was fresh and flavor was good. Chips were average. Quick in and out on a Sunday night
Fast, friendly service and excellent food. This was our first visit, but won’t be our last.
Overall, food was not as good this time but I think that's because it was Saturday night and they were swamped. Same with service. We will go back and try it again on a week night.
Good selection of food and excellent service.
Food was excellent, as was the service. Some of the drink prices were a bit high, but also delish. I would definitely return.
Fantastic margaritas! Food was very good too.
This was our fourth time at Agave and we still think the food is great but the service is just weird. There were just two of us. We told the hostess, "just two of us." She gave us four menus, five sets of silverware and three glasses of water. I know, weird.
Then if you need anything, it's almost impossible to get them to come back. We were done and waiting to get boxes for our leftovers and it took me 15 minutes to flag someone down. And then once we got the boxes, another 15 minutes to get the check. I hope they fix this because we love their food.
This was our first visit and we’re very pleased with our experience. The food was great - even the teenagers mentioned that the food tasted fresh and really good - even the vegetarian enchilada. We will be back!
Brunch was lovely. Chilaquiles were good, Mimosa & Bloody Mary wonderful! Impressed w how attentive thebwaiybstaff was. I love the vibe. In these modern times when restaurants are "modernizing," it's nice that the traditional, Mexican American restaurant style still exists.
Went there for (the third time) for a late lunch/early dinner last Saturday. Ordered drinks (there were three of us) and they brought them for two of us but not mine. Asked two more times...nothing. There were very few customers in the place at that time and a bunch of servers. Asked everyone. Finally had to wave my hand in the air to get someone to notice me (after about 10 minutes) and the server came over and said she would be right back. She was. 5 minutes later. A full 15 minutes after I ordered. And I had to ask four times total. This just wrong. Their food is great and the service the other times has been fine.
Family brunch. Service was excellent and the food was brought out very quickly.
First time. Nice folks good food and service
Our first time here and it was very good Mexican food. We will go back. They have a different way of doing their combos that I love. Pick your main (taco, enchilada, etc) and then pick one of nine sides. Some I have never seen in a Mexican restaurant, like some excellent Brussels sprouts. The food was excellent as well as the service.
Had never visited Agave, loved the food and wonderful salsa options. Amazing, quick service and very nice people who worked at the restaurant. Thank you for a wonderful meal and dining experience. We will return.
Our new favorite Go To Mexican restaurant! Love the Agave nachos.
I love the enchiladas suiza with either ground beef or shredded chicken with sour cream, asparagus and Mexican corn. My son and his wife ordered the inside out burrito with grilled steak, and they love that one. The service was very good too.
Moved son to Redmond and wanted to find restaurants for him to try . Found this on open table and it is easy walking distance from his apartment . Food was good and came out fast, but service could of been a little more welcoming. Wasn’t very busy but it was Thanksgiving weekend :)
Love the Indide Out Burrito & the Grilled Street Corn!
Sat outside on patio. Once sun went down heater from above kept us toasty! Great friendly, helpful service. Food was authentic with a menu for all tastes! Will return!
Hostess was especially friendly and helpful. Service was friendly, attentive and accommodating. Margarita Cadillac was excellent. Food was indeed fresh and delicious, although I thought the refried beans were a little too salty. Able to get a last-minute reservation through Open Table which made me happily surprised. Will definitely recommend Agave Reataurant to others.
We love agave, but one of our entrees came out almost frozen. They didn’t even comp it when reported. Still will go back because they are typically good! Love the fajitas!
New favorite AND BEST Mexican restaurant!
This is a family dinner favorite. Always super friendly service and good food and margaritas! A great spot for family Mexican food.
We had a reservation but ate a n the bar instead as it was a sunny day and it was open. Food & service was great, margaritas were awesome!
They were under staffed, and it caused slow service, but the food was excellent.
We had only eaten at the Kent Station location for Agave. This location is definitely much older and more tired looking. The restaurant looks old - vinyl on chairs and booths are ripped. There is much dust around the restaurant. When walking into the restroom - you can see into the kitchen. There was food all over the floor. The restrooms were dirty. The food was okay - not great. The one highlight was the three different kind of salsas that you get with the chips. I'm not sure we'd return again. I would definitely go back to the Kent Station location which is much nicer.
Very bad customer service - a soup was brought at the same time as the main course and when I finished the soup the main dish was cold. And the worst margaritas I ever had.
Loved the shredded chicken dishes, but not the shredded beef dishes. Service was very good.
its the first time visiting this restaurant and my initial view of the place was that it looked like to could do with a makeover.
Looks can be deceiving though.
The service was very good (although it was a mid week early table) and the food was delicious with large portions.
The cocktails I ordered were fantastic and in all it was a great evening.
We always enjoy the people, service and food. It's our go-to place! They did not really know about the Open Table Reservation; not a problem as there was ample seating.
As always, Agave Cocina and Cantina exceed expectations The quality of the food is always exceptional and the service is courteous and prompt.
Our table of 6 was greeted with warmth and Elva consistently has known how to make each person feel special. She is a true gem in this restaurant. Highly recommend the grilled chimichurri fish tacos prepared with handmade tortillas. Delicious!
Good food in a very nice ambient. Daiquiri was good even not the best I drunk
Best Mexican food in the area. Good service. Nice atmosphere. Food came hot and was just the right portions. Very tasty margerita and a well stocked bar. We will definately return. This was our first time at the restaurant and read about it in the Redmond Reporter. If you are looking for a non chain Mexican eatery, try this one.
I was a bit disappointed but only because I had higher expectations. This is a decent family Mexican restaurant. The staff was great and all-in-all the food was too.
This location was asthetically great except the bar seemed lively but patio is adjacent to parking lot.
Good. Food arrived super fast (rellano & enchiladas). Friendly staff
Not so good.
Environment and food was a bit greasy for my taste.
Been to other locations with different results.
Mexican food is my passion. In my free time I research authentic Mexican cooking, I almost exclusively eat at Mexican restaurants. To say that I'm a Mexican food fanatic is an understatement. That said, I was very impressed with my first visit to Agave. The service was prompt, the food was inventive yet authentic, and the atmosphere was wonderful. Everyone enjoyed their lunch immensely! I am definitely a fan and plan on returning on a regular basis. This place rocks!
I love this place. I'm originally from California and I'm very picky about Mexican food. This is a great place
Everything I have had here is wonderful: guacamole, cheese dip, nachos, tortilla soup, salmon salad, steak salad, child rellenos, mole, fajitas, carne asada... it's all good!
My stand by is the shredded beef enchilada with refried beans and salad. They do a great job with these. I usually order this unless I feel too guilty, then I go for a salad. My boyfriend had the steak fajitas and loved them. I also ordered a prickly pear lemonade. Tasted artificial - not really a fan.
We usually come here twice a month. Don't miss it! Best Mexican in Redmond for sure!
We were initially impressed with the complimentary corn chips and freshly made dips. The main meals however were comparatively tasteless and disappointing. The drinks were very expensive. We will not be back.
