My girlfriend and I were celebrating our anniversary and just on vacation from Los Angeles. Looking for a great place to dine and have great tequila. Service was great and with reasonable pricing.
Tried the octopus and ceviche first then two different moles--most were awesome although the chicken mole was a bit rubbery. When I told the waiter that he showed up with a new pork mole! Amazing!! Wonderful food, great service and good SoCal buzz!
As per usual, polite and attentive service - excellent food! We love to take visiting guests here!
This place was incredible! Awesome food, great ambiance, excellent service!
Great 1st time experience. My date was very impressed.
Love this place. It's up-scale Mexican with wonderful favors (180-degrees from Taco Bell!!). The tequilas recommended by our waiter were terrific. The food was so delicious. Can't wait to return. This was recommended by a friend who grew up in Tijuana. This is the only Mexican restaurant she will eat at in SD.
The margaritas and mole sauces are delicious! The service was great.
El Agave is always good. My husband and I both tried something new for dinner since we get stuck on the same thing since it is so good - and both new things were good, too. The cadillac margaritas are the best - ask to sit out on the side where it is enclosed but you can look out the window and open the window for a nice breeze!
The opportunity you provided the four of us -- two visiting Alaskans, one third-generation San Diegoan [who had not ever been to El Agave before!] and one experienced, transplanted Californian from the East Coast -- to taste unusual/authentic ingredients and enjoy your preparation and imaginative presentation of Mexican food was a real pleasure and much more than we had realized we were in for. Thank you! We will recommend you to all and sundry!
Tasty food and prompt service but the prices were a little high for rather small portions. The decor was also a little dated (we were chilly seated by the windows). Not bad, but not amazing either.
Real Mexican food, the way it should be presented. A real Gem in Old Town. Great ambiance as well as food. Everything is terrific. Will go again and again.
Moles were authentic and delucious
El Agave provided fabulous epicurean delights. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our menu entree choices and look forward to going back for more!
We love El Agave. Go there every time we get to San Diego (from Colorado). I love the décor...warm, dark tones; "earthy" atmosphere; fascinating collection of tequila bottles. It's just a great place for a special meal.
