Agave Cocina and Tequila | Issaquah Highlands
It was a Sunday afternoon, we were craving Mexican food, decided to give Agave Cocina a try and I'm very glad that we did. Food was fantastic, service was great, and we've added it to our "Go Back Again" list.
Good place to have nice meal. Great selection.
The waitstaff went above and beyond, the food was delicious, but the front of the house was very rude. Apparently they thought they had discontinued open table, so when I initially showed them our reservation they told us they don’t do reservations and gave us a hard time before eventually agreeing to seat us. I understand that they were busy and didn’t expect a party to show up with reservations, but the mix up wasn’t our fault and it wasn’t very professional to direct their frustration at us - not a great way to celebrate a birthday. The rest of the experience was amazing, the waitstaff was awesome and the food was really good. Just an unfortunate start.
The carnitas eggs benedict is amazing!
Good food. Extremely slow service.
The menu reads really well, but the actual food is not nearly as good. We went for brunch and everything was boring. The jalapeno chorizo gravy sounded great but was blander than a diner sausage gravy. Just because it is in the suburbs doesn't mean people don't want flavor.
Fun spot to try a different take on Mexican food. Attentive staff, convenient location, modern look.
The menu was fabulous. Lots of specialties and not as much of the "typical" mexican fare. My meal was fantastic, and my wife has eaten here several times and has always been pleased with the food. I would say this is the best place to eat in Issaquah Highlands, and one of the best in the Issaquah area. I'll definitely be back!
Quiet neighborhood location, but very good Mexican food.....and great Margaritas! The green salsa with the chips was outstanding and the carnitas particularly flavorful. Could have wished for a more generous guacamole serving, but then again I hadn't tested the system and asked for more. A good value place for good food
The food at Agave is very fresh and well presented; however, the flavors are bland and lacking authenticity. It is okay if you are not expecting Mexican or TexMex. The staff are great.
Great food-homemade, authentic. Would definitely go back. Service not bad but not what I would call very good. Went for lunch and I don't think they were fully staffed for the day yet.
Agave is a small restaurant with what a slightly contemporary take on traditional Mexican food. The prices are quite reasonable, the atmosphere is hip and the food is great. We love the Carne Asada and Skinny Margarita made with lime and agave syrup. Try to get a seat away from the doors or plan to keep your jacket on.
