Run, do not walk, to Cien Agaves for the best authentic Mexican food in all of Scottsdale. The atmosphere is vibrant, the service is outstanding and every item on the menu is prepared to perfection. My favorites are the Guacamole appetizer and the ceviche. Yet, everything is just fabulous!
Great service. Excellent food. Great happy hour. Outstanding Pom Berry margarita!
Carne Asada tacos were delicious and the margaritas were outstanding. We sat upstairs in the back so it was a bit cold but nice because it was so hot. Shrimp tacos were luke warm. We ordered a side of refried beans and my wife said it was the best she ever had. A bit pricy but consistent with Scottsdale.
We had a great service with a manager/ servers coming over multiple times to check in on us and the queso is amazing!
It seemed to be a younger crowd hang out, but we were there during the Happy Hour. Decent food, but not the authentic Mexican food we were looking for. Margaritas were good, location was nice.
Great food! So fresh!!! Great service too. Mojito was perfect.
We were so excited to eat here. I never write reviews that are critical however this place could really improve and maybe my review will empower them.
Service was slow and we were not greeted for at least 10 minutes from When we sat. Had to ask for water. When the server brought drinks she did not know who was whose. Margaritas had no punch to them. Even after drinking 2 each no one felt anything. It was like drinking lemonade and we all had different versions. Food came cold except for sizzling fajitas. Rice beans chimichanga were all COLD and not fresh tasting. Service picked up as dinner went along. Maybe they were having an off night. Overall ...with so many great slots in this area this place will not be on our visit again list.
Every time we visit Old Town Scottsdale we have lunch at Cien Agaves. This past visit was no different than all our previous ones. We were greeted as soon as we entered and seated straight away. The server was friendly, cheerful and attentive without being pushy. The margaritas are yummy and a good price. I had the strawberry lime rite and my husband had the Pom berry; both delicious. I ordered the fajitas with a combination of shrimp and steak. The veges and meats are always cooked to perfection. The platter is quite big so I usually don’t end up finishing the rice, beans, tortillas and salad that comes with it in favor of the meat. Overall a fabulous meal that I am sure we will repeat in the near future.
Great happy hour selection, excellent service, nice outside area
Very nice place for an informal bite to eat. Worth a try for sure
Great happy hour menu and drinks. We will be back!
Had a great Happy Hour tacos and margaritas/beer!
Waitress did a great job and Manager Harry was awesome! Can’t wait to go back!
Outstanding service great food and friendly environment during our Covid Times !
Great cheese crisp, enchiladas and tacos.
Always love happy hour at Cien Agave!!
Seriously the best Mexican food in Scottsdale! Excellent happy hour! Love this place
Outstanding service and great food at a reasonable price! Plus excellent job of socially distancing!
Great tequila. Ambiance... Service.
Too cool for school!
Our waitress was super nice and was also an ASU student! She gave great advice!
Always order the Cien Beets with Diablo shrimp. Normally flavorful, hot and spicy. Dish was bland. First time I had to ask for salt, pepper and hot sauce in a Mexican restaurant
Gathering of friends for casual dinner
Great spot, clean, great service. The food was spectacular, the Poblano Soup was a spicy entrance to an embrace of a meal. The queso verde elevated the meal, and was used with the tacos and burritos, highly recommend. All of this complemented by a 56 oz mega margarita, our server was great and this place knocks it out of the park.
Too noisy, hard to have a conversation but food and service were good and servers very nice and friendly,
Danielle was awesome!
During these strange times of COVID19, it was very awesome to see how they adhered to social distancing even at the bar, every one coming in and out had face masks. They would spray down a door handle as soon as someone touched. They were cleaning all the time. Now about the food. It was very good, the Chicken Tortilla soup was one of the best I have ever had, and I try it at every place I see in on the menu.
Love Cien Agave. Great atmosphere and great tacos.
Great happy hour! Service always great! Great food!
We were seated promptly and the server was attentive and friendly. Food and drinks were very good. You do pay $3 for chips and salsa, but they were good.
We were there on Taco Tuesday and the $2 shredded beef tacos were a hit with my daughters.
I had the fajita bowl with the Diablo shrimp...very tasty!!
Always the Best in Town! Happy Hour is so worth it.
Excellent service. Clean! Friendly staff.
I ordered a quesadilla and a taco and had to pay for salsa. Mgr and staff said “because of the times now, we have to charge for salsa.” WHO CHARGES FOR 1 BOWL OF SALSA AT A MEXICAN FOOD RESTAURANT WHEN THE CUSTOMER ORDERS FOOD YHAT NEEDS SALSA?!?!? It is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard.
Hello David, Thank you for your feedback. We have put much thought about our decision over weather to offer complimentary chips and salsa, including salsa sides. We came to this decision due to rising food costs and the rising costs of doing business due to Covid 19. I'm sorry that you feel it's unacceptable for us to charge you 50 cents, but this charge helps us with our costs. Thank you.
Our favorite Mexican food in Scottsdale.
Good food, good margaritas, good service, great happy hour and decent prices.
Great patio area. Good Margs and nice server. They also have a good happy hour!
