The drinks and guacamole were really good! The rest of the food seemed very overpriced for what we got. We sat on the patio which was nice and not very busy. For the price to quality ratio i wouldn’t go back again.

This was my second time visiting this restaurant and and first time was amazing. We visited agave for one of my friends birthdays and the service was impeccable and the food was superb. However the go around not so great, it started out very well with just basic apps. Followed by the exact same dish that I had the first time, only this time to see if it was not so fresh. The shrimp tasted as if it was freezer burned and the seafood inside the enchiladas wasn’t so fresh either. The owner did me a “favor” by removing $8 from my meal. A meal the wasn’t finished and cleared from the table. Overall, I’m not so sure I’ll be returning to agave. But a great first experience for sure. Great drinks, but mediocre seafood.

Amazing Ceviche! Everything we ate was absolutely delightful! Really, the only drawback to enjoying our meal was the noise level. There was a very loud party of girls in the 'chandelier room' and although I wouldn't begrudge them their fun, it made our conversation extremely difficult! I was visiting with friends, I hadn't seen in years, and we couldn't even hear each other! Would highly recommend creating a separate room for your larger parties not only for their privacy but for every other patron who was looking to enjoy a meal and a conversation.

Cool weather offered the opportunity to eat on the patio which was much quieter than the main restaurant. Our server Sara, was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and ingredients and provided stellar service throughout the evening. Beautifully plated, incredible flavor combinations and ample portions. Margarita menu offers a variety of unique options and we found three that were worth a second round. The chocolate dessert is a must to share with the table. We plan on returning and bringing friends to experience this little gem!

Wonderful, authentic Mexican food from central Mexico. Not your typical Sonoran fare. Pibil, Mole, etc. Outstanding flavors and one of the best margaritas I've had. Service was excellent as well.

First time here. Food was fantastic. We dined outside and the patio is cute. We started with chips, salsa and guacamole. The chips and guacamole were spot on. I had the cocorita margarita and my husband had the mango margarita- it was a special. Both were amazing. For dinner I had the enchiladas de mole and the hubs had the filete cuchos. Both were amazing. The mole had such depth of flavor and the filet was super tender and cooked to perfection. For dessert we had the tres leche cake. That completed the meal.

The service was fantastic. All in all a great meal. We will dine here again.

Octopus ceviche, shrimp dishes, and lobster chalupas were all outstanding, but especially the ceviche. Watermelon drink as well. One big problem: Even with most of the tables empty and just a few people at the bar, the noise level was crushing. Uncovered stone/brick walls are a problem, and music which was too loud caused bar denizens to shout. Net result: impossible to hold a normal conversation at a dining table.

Run, do not walk to this amazing spot. Fernando spent time walking us through the incredible menu, made suggestions and kept us entertained. The food was spectacular. Fernando encouraged us to push outside our comfort zone and be open to trying something new, which was great advice and led to one of the tastiest, most unexpected meals we’ve had in a long time.

The Margaritas were excellent, as were the chips and ceviche. We enjoyed The halibut, shrimp and mole verde enchiladas. Unfortunately, the recommended Mole verde Dona carmelita was a disappointment. The flavor was good, but the pork was very tough. Cool space.

The food was all ok, but not better. We thought the ceviche was too heavy on tomato. Tasted like Bloody Mary mix. We had halibut for an entree. It was quite boring. Although nothing was bad, nothing was memorable either

I’m a vegetarian and told the waiter. The enchiladas were good. However he did not bring out the rice as listed on the menu . When asked he said it was cooked in chicken stock. In those circumstances he should have told me that at the time of ordering or brought out something instead of rice. Just eliminating listed item is not ok.

The service was AWESOME and we had a party of about 20! The servers explanation of the menu felt like a theatrical performance - which was awesome all by itself - and you can tell they really do care about the quality of their food and tequila! Loved this place! I could’ve done without the cake fee for bringing in our own cake after paying > $900 for everyone else’s food and drink but I was just caught off guard by it, that’s all. Seems fair enough and everything else was very impressive.

Go at your own risk. On arrival, no hostess at the “Wait to be Seated” sign. No masks for hostess, servers or manager. Sat outside, bird crap on the back of the chairs. No, they cannot split a salad in order to share it. Ordered the salad with no shrimp on it...however, when billed that did not cause the price to be reduced. The chicken mole was dry and over cooked. Other than that, a really special evening.

Food was very good. Ambiance was very nice on the patio. But our server was so-so. Took awhile to come to our table. Checked on us once after food came and we had to ask him for the check after sitting there with empty dishes for more than 20 minutes and never even bothered to ask us about dessert which we would have gotten.
