    Was the best meal we had in the 2 weeks that we stayed in San Jose del Cabo. The flavors are multi-layered in unique combinations of ingredients. I had the tamale mole and my husband had the ragú fettuccine. Best mole that I have ever had. The fettuccine had such amazing flavor, I would have never thought green apple would add such a flavorful layer - also ricotta and white pepper in the fresh pasta. I would highly recommend for all foodies and those that enjoy a creative meal.

    My wife and I went for Valentine’s Day, and it was absolutely incredible. My wife had the octopus and I had the suckling pig, the pig was honestly the best I ever had and the octopus was cooked perfectly not chewy at all. The drinks were delicious and were a good size, most places give you tiny drinks. The service was amazing and very friendly, I would definitely come back and recommend this restaurant. The only thing I didn’t enjoy was that there is not many lights on the roof so it was very hard to see the food which is a shame as it was very well presented.

    Excellent rooftop restaurant. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Three of us ordered the short rib fettuccine and it was delicious. One person ordered the roasted chicken and she said it was delicious. The drinks were wonderful. We had an enjoyable meal and evening here. Highly recommend.

    La experiencia en general fue bastante buena, salvo que hay una zona con poca luz, principalmente de velas, faltaría luminaria para poder cenar durante la noche, fuera de eso la experiencia fue bastante placentera y la comida muy rica en sabor. Recomendada para la tarde y la puesta de sol, para la noche recomendaría pedir que los pongan en el área con luminarias en lugar de donde hay velas

    Agave Kitchen is great if you want to be a part of the fun atmosphere of the weekly Art Walk in San Jose del Cabo. It's a lively environment. I feel the menu is a bit limiting and the food is good. I wish there were more share options. I ordered the scallops appetizer and was disappointed that a large kale leaf was totally inedible. When I commented this to the waiter, they said it was just for decoration. Unfortunately it took up over a 1/3 of the dish so kinda weird. The oysters were off the charts delish! Some of the best we've had in Cabo

    This was our fourth visit to Agave and we are still enamored with it. The catch of the day never disappoints, nor does the service. We recommend starting off with the oysters. All the dishes look amazing. We can’t wait for our next visit.

    Food was very slow coming out to us, we think the waiter forgot to put in our order. Many other guests arrived after us and got their food before us. The staff kept saying they were sorry but didn’t do anything about it. Wine list was expensive for the quality offered. Food was good but again overpriced.

    Wow - what a great experience - Benjamin and Rolando were just awesome and the drinks and food were were excellent. We tried a few of the mescal drinks that they recommended and they were perfect. I highly recommend everything - we had the oysters and octopus as appetizers and the suckling pig, kampachi tiradito, fish of the day (totoaba), fettuccine with ragu de costlla, and the jardin de agave vegetables. Everything was delicious. It was our first time at Kitchen Agave and we will definitely be back next year. Highly recommended!!!

    Food was great, service was terrible, we waited 25 minutes for someone to take our order, then he forgot my moms order and our drinks didn’t come until til we were halfway done with our dinner. Then we had to wait another 20 minutes to get the check. Terrible service

    Our meal was a bit of a disaster from start to finish and REALLY overpriced for the standard of food and service. For a meal that cost us more than $200 US - for two below-average margaritas, two glasses of wine, one starter and two mains - we expected better and the whole night left a bitter taste. Alarm bells should have sounded when my wife's glass of white wine was significantly less than my glass of red, due to the fact she got the end of the bottle. Why wouldn't the waiter top it up with a new one so our measures were equal? Our kampachi starter was nice, but the upstairs seating area is so dark we could barely see it. I had to turn my iPhone torch on to read the menu, that's how dark it was. Not a problem in daylight, but at night it just becomes more irritating than atmospheric. My wife's shrimp dish was okay, but a tad overdone. Not bad enough to complain though. I made the mistake of ordering one of the most expensive entrees - the steak with roasted garlic butter, confit mushroom, shallots and Ancho Reyes jus (almost $60 US). I asked for it medium rare but it came out grey and overdone. It was so dark on the roof terrace that our waiter had bring out a torch in order to confirm it was overcooked and return it to the kitchen. They did so without a fuss, but if I'm paying that much for a steak I find it astonishing that they couldn't cook it right. When the second attempt arrived it was better, but very rare and none of the char you'd expect for their wood-burning oven. The fat hadn't rendered so it was very gelatinous and not great to eat. (Halfway through eating it, one of the waiting staff actually took the time to tell me that the rest of the team ate my first steak (!) It definitely wasn't worth the price - and it was particularly galling to have to pay the full price for our meal, even after one of the team said the 2nd steak was undercooked. We had high hopes for Agave, but it seemed to be trying to be high-end with none of the skill or service.

    Cool spot offering good eats, yummy libations and great service……with a view of the town. A friend recommended this place so we dined here on our last night in Cabo. Upon arrival, it didn’t look too busy, but there are layers to this restaurant. There’s the bar downstairs, then upstairs there’s two open areas; one overlooks the town and the other is a quieter area. Food is really good. I actually thought it was a farm to table concept, but our server said it was not. Didn’t matter bc the food tasted fresh and was definitely made of good quality ingredients. Isabel was our initial server, and she had help from a gentleman whose name I forgot. Both were super friendly, funny and very attentive. My party all had the same entrees (lechon) and I had the fettucine with braised short ribs; both very good. We shared the burrata and kampachi apps; both a MUST; ask for more bread to soak up that deliciousness from the burrata. For dessert, the gals got the espresso martini (one of the better ones I’ve had) and we shared the pear crumble. Everything was GOOD! Would definitely go back for another taste.
