Cien Agaves is the best. Great service and amazing margaritas and food! The guacamole is a must along with any of their tacos and the enchilada.

The restaurant is really nice. I love the South western theme. The fried cheese crisp & the tacos are totally amazing. The bar is nice & the people are very friendly. It is one of my favorite places to visit when I come to Scotsdale.

We went for dinner with another couple. It was a great place for a low key date night! Margaritas were great! We sat on the patio. It’s small, but the ambiance was nice and we were able to take our time and visit and chat. Food was good. Service was excellent! We would definitely go back.

We love Cien Agaves Tacos & Tequila! We had a friend in from out of town and I made reservations through Open Table. My friend is still raving about the food and how good it was. I had the street tacos, she had the enchiladas and my husband had the chicken quesadilla's all the food was spot on! I wish you were closer to where we live but for now we will drive to you!

Overall, excellent. The restaurant was a very short walk from our hotel. Our party of 4 was seated immediately. The server was extremely attentive. He may have allowed us just a little bit more time to look at the menu. That part of the meal felt just a bit rushed. Food came out extremely quickly.The meal was excellent. We had a member of our party with special dietary needs. The restaurant did their best to accommodate her. She was pleased. Overall, very good value and I would return.

I was only able to request outdoor seating which was fine, but when I arrived, I was able to request bar seating.

Food was excellent, you really need to try the Queso Dip. I went for the Tacos a la carte and three were excellent as well.

I also tried the jalapeño and cucumber margarita. The flavor was great and not just spice.

The restaurant was full so the food did take a minute but was well worth it!

We asked for a booth but were told it would be a 40 minute wait, even though we had a reservation and arrived 15 minutes early. That was the only disappointment.

Usually all 5 Stars but last night was hopefully just a one off. Had chips on floor and food was not the normal 5 Stars as “enchilada style” burrito just barely had any sauce on it.
