This survey is based on multiple visits. I continue to want to give this restaurant a another chance because I enjoy the food. However, the service is lackluster. Even during a pandemic when the place is empty, they still don’t understand how to take care of a table.

We ate at this location for the first time last night. They have to go a lot to beat the ambiance, quality and service at the Old Town Scottsdale location. It was painfully obvious they were short staffed and the people who were working were doing their best and were pleasant in spite of the circumstances. Recommend going to the Old Town location.

Mediocre chain food, didn’t realize it was a chain when we booked (not from the area) not particularly authentic, disappointing.

Wait was kind of long for food. Kitchen was backed up for a good 40 ish minutes. The quality of food seemed a little lesser than the old town location.

Nice place, right next to the movie theater. Ok place for happy hour. Not a lot of people so great for a quiet conversation. Good food and drinks. Ok prices for happy hour, but over priced at other times. Not a lot happening there.

Dinner with friends! Delicious tacos and guacamole. Typically we go to Old Town location. North location not bad. Closer to home.
Definitely going back!

We went to Cien Agaves With our kids after a movie and really thought the food was quite good and a great value. They have killer margaritas and the guacamole was great. They also have a kids menu. It’s more of a casual Mexican sports bar, so a bit more on the noisy side. However, it didn’t bother us and the service was great. The tacos were also excellent. We will definitely come back.

The guacamole was amazing. My fajitas were way too
Salty in my opinion but my date loved his tacos. The outdoor seating had horrible views to the mall so we moved inside where the decor was fun and bright. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Another great happy hour - we had the taquitos, cheese crisp, chicken quesadilla, ceviche, beet and brussel salad and Cien agaves margaritas - one on the rocks and the other blended. Service was friendly and quick, the food and drinks tasty. Highly recommend for pre or post movie!

Repeat dining and previously good but not this time. Dry rice, no chicken with the salad as ordered then a scoop of overcooked diced chicken was run over after waiting for correction, just a bad night in the kitchen I guess. Might need to stick with the old town location.

For the price of everything, it was extremely disappointing. The vegetables were drowned in butter and oil, and the corn tortillas had to be taken back for others as the first ones were dripping oil.

On a separate note, for a place with extremely high end tequilas, it is hard to understand why they do not offer a large ice cube or ice ball to enjoy their drinks with. When I asked why, the answer was: because people that are enjoying that level of tequila are either sipping it or shooting it. Well nobody shoots tequila that’s $20 on the low end per shot and if you’re sipping it most likely it would warrant the large ice piece. Given that most restaurants in the area offer that, it would make me choose somewhere else, especially to enjoy higher end drinks. Maybe it was an off night, but overall the experience was disappointing.

Service was thoughtful and pleasant, so the slow pace was entirely forgivable. The margaritas were excellent as were the appetizers, but my #5 Combination was microwaved and not the best. We requested to be seated outside as the noise level inside was extreme. Wish the misters had been turned on earlier as it was a warm evening. Having visited your Old Town location numerous times we were happy to join friends for our dinner at your newer location. All the best!
