Food and service wasn’t good
Service was lackluster, we had trouble getting the waiter to take our son’s order and refill water. He seemed to be in a hurry but was never around at nearby tables even. Drinks had way too much ice in as compared to other places, although tasty. The crispy appetizer was good. All of the food was good. My son thought the bathroom seemed like a prison and thought it was creepy.
We booked Cien Agaves because we were flying into Phoenix late, and the restaurant was open late. We had a fabulous meal. The food and drinks were flavorful, and the food was not too salty—a pet peeve of mine. The service was awesome with none of the grumbling we sometimes get when scheduling a late dinner. In fact, 2 parties came in after our 10:30pm seating. We will eat here again when coming to the Phoenix area.
Great service, great food, very accommodating! Overall very enjoyable!
Great food and good service.
Nice chimichanga and salsas. Service was sporadic, sometimes great and other times slow. Outdoor seating is great, but limited. Inside is very loud.
Great food. Best nachos ever and the tacos we had were absolutely exceptional. This is a restaurant / bar so dont go here for a quiet meal but at the same time the trio is worth it since the food is excellent!
Delicious food, generous portions, and a cozy patio.
Great selection of tacos. Happy hour is great !
It’s my favorite place for tacos.
Our group of 4 was in Phoenix for a couple of days this past weekend. Everyone wanted good Mexican food and we settled on Cien Agaves since it was situated in Old Town. We were not disappointed. Jesus was our server and he was attentive and helpful. We sat outside in the intimate patio area, which was fun and less noisy than inside. The food was excellent and everyone enjoyed their selections. The Casamigos Margarita's were outstanding. I can highly recommend it.
Great evening. Bartender was kind and attentive. We arrived and while we confirmed a table thru open table we opted to sit at the bar. In case they filled up we told the hostess this so she could give away the table. Before leaving the restaurant I took advantage of the free wifi and checked my email and saw they cancelled my reservation and I lost my open table points. Ultimately they gave them back to me but if I hadn’t of asked I wouldn’t of. I thought this was strange considering we still ended up dining there just not at a table that a restaurant would say you cancelled the reservation.
Overall though the food was really good, the guacamole is a must here! Got enchiladas this go around too and they were delicious! Would go back for sure
Excellent service and the food was hot and excellent quality. A little noisy at lunch time.
We arrived in time for Happy Hour and got some half price appetizers and a round of margaritas followed by a couple tacos each. The food was outstanding, service great and perfect location in Old Town Scottsdale. Highly recommend.
Great place and dog friendly and super good and our door seating 😄.
Not as good as I remembered. My tacos were cold which was disappointing. Luckily my mango margarita tasted good.
Terrific time. Enjoyed the food- so good.
Good Mexican selections and wonderful tequila choices. Good service and nice outdoor seating.
Food good but service weak. Had to ask for chips, ask for our drinks, did not bring sauce with meal, brought us the wrong check then had to wave the server down to take the payment.
It was just ok tonight as compared to prior visits. Service was really slow. Our server had zero personality. Food was not as good as my last couple of visits. There was even a big difference between our first and second margaritas. They need to work on better consistency. A bit disappointed particularly since it was my selection to celebrate my birthday.
Was sat upstairs. Noise was so bad we couldn’t hear each other speak. Great food though.
We are from Atlanta and thought our Mexican restaurants were the best, we were wrong. Our dinner here was amazing and wish we had this near us! Amazing food!
The food here is so delicious!!! The decor is very cool and I love the location.
The hostess is not that friendly and quite frankly seems like she doing us all a favor by working here.
She interrupted us twice as we Checked in so she could guess what name our reservation was under both guesses which by the way we’re wrong instead of just letting us give her our name.
The server was the same just absolutely no interest in being here. At least after a while our server warmed up.
Wish I could say the same about the hostess.
Even on our way out as we all said goodbye and thank you she doesn’t even respond.
Maybe she’s just not experienced with work ethic.
It did take over 18 minutes for a glass of the Sangria which is odd because it’s pre made.
But because the food is sooo good I had to give this place a good rating.
The web site photos show the place as an intimate hideaway from main Street bustle. In reality, it's a sports bar with tvs so loud and bright we almost left as soon as we walked in. The food was ok, but EVERYTHING does not have to be spicy. Salad dressing? We were seated quickly, but we asked for a different table that didn't have a tv BIGGER THAN THE TABLE hanging above it. Server didn't check on us, just took order, delivered food, and we flagged her down to get the check.
2nd time there, wait for table not expected again as reservation was made and confirmed. The noise level was to the roof making it extreamily hard to even hear across the table. Although waters, coctails, salsas refreshed nicely, thumbs down for not having plates cleared after evident we were done and just waiting for check - who truly wants to sit w finished food plates, silver in front of you ? Also, am not accustomed to having request napkins / silverware delivered well after chips and beverage. I would not recommend and will not return.
Overall the food was not up to par. The salsas could be better. The green Chile pork soup was more about hotness than overall flavor. The steak fajitas were not up to par. I don't think they marinate or flavor the skirt steak at all, so they were not that good if you are used to fajitas from Texas. $5 margaritas were good.
Food was alright, nothing too great! Our server was okay, didn't do a whole lot and wasn't around!
The Nachos w/ Chicken and Guacamole appetizers are excellent... Between the 6 of us, we ordered the tacos a la carte and one of the 3 tacos special which includes rice & beans... We tried the following tacos: Island shrimp, tecate fish, grilled mahi mahi, diablo shrimp and carne asada... all 5 are excellent... worth the time to try as many as possible...
We have been several times and will continue to enjoy the food and atmosphere. The tinga tacos street corn and black beans are outstanding ! Great happy hour!
Great experience, they had our table ready when we walked in. Tacos were good too
We were a group of 9 and we had a such a fun time and even with a vegetarian and a vegan everyone had a dish they loved. The margaritas were delicious too. I had a signature margarita and a Mango Tango.
Great food, great price, good service. Will definitely be back!
Could not enjoy meal as restaurant was very warm and we were sweating through just an ok dinner for my husbands birthday.
The margarita Monday is great! Tacos were delicious and they worked around a food allergy beautifully and found a great substitute! Loved the location, our server was super sweet and the food was definitely a reason to return!
Might not need a reservation -- Friday night about 730 (off season, though) there was plenty of room both tables and bar. No beers on tap but big can/bottle selection. Good tacos.
Nice Location with very good food in a great atmosphere. The waitresses was very attentive.
I will come again.
Excellent fun place. The noise level is very loud and the service wasn’t great but we really enjoyed the food and vibe. The waitress was very sweet but I think she was a bit overwhelmed as it was super busy. Fajitas were great and salsa was great. Loved old town atmosphere and we will be back!
First time here was pleasantly surprised by the menu. Definitely will be trying again. Ambiance was good
The staff is amazing!!! Will definitely be back for the food and people.
Good food, good for families and date nights! Great quacomole, very noisy!
