I had a shrimp cocktail that was really great. I lost count of how many big, fresh, tasty shrimp were in that glass with very flavorful avocado and spears of cuke and celery. Fresh tomatoes that had actual flavor in a tomato sauce that had not seen the inside of a can. Perfect for a patio lunch on a warm... More

Our third visit to Agave. Tasty, we'll prepared food. Shrimp dishes are excellent as are items with the traditional mole sauce. Wonderful, friendly service, and portions big enough to share. Highly recommended. Many Mexican families eat here. That is a very good sign of quality.

Some staff at a vineyard recommended this restaurant and since my husband loves Mexican food, we decided to give it a try. This restaurant is located in a strip mall so you would have to GPS to find it. I ordered the beef burrito and it was basically tasteless. My husband enjoyed his chile relleno and chicken enchilada a bit... More

We were returning from a short vacation to Pt. Arena and stopped in Healdsburg, Ca. After searching for a place to have lunch we decided to try Agave. Wow, what a delicious experience! The Mexican food was very authentic, in fact, the whole wheat tortillas were actual made in Mexico. There were four of us and we all truly enjoyed... More

Agave is tucked back in a small strip mall in Healdsburg, but it is well worth searching for. The atmosphere is fun and the food is fantastic. You won't be disappointed.

This restaurant was suggested by the B&B we were staying, and it was a great find while on vacation at Healdsburg. Wonderful choices beyond your typical Mexican selections. Food was fresh, health ingredients, and great service. By far, the best Mexican food I have eaten.

Taco Salad is the safe bet for me --- hard to screw up. The Mole was not my favorite. Sauces are not authenic. Stick with anything that has no sauce and it is pretty good.

I was very disappointed in the chicken mole at Agave. The sauce (mole negro) was delicious and complex, but the chicken, itself, was dry and stringy. The margaritas were pretty weak--not much tequilla in them. I much prefer the mole colaradito at El Faralito just off of the main square in Healdsburg.

The MOLE is the very best - both the chicken and the carnitas. Their other foods are great too and the service is very good. This is more of a family style restaurant.

I've been to Agave twice sinced it open once 4 years ago (which was good) but my second visit it was horrible!! Flautas (hard tacos) were soggy & sweet with walnuts (not Mexican at all) chicken mole & rice was horrible. Mole did not taste like mole and the rice tasted like a can tomatoe sauce.Food not fresh at all!... More
