Four of us went 3 had the chili colorado and we all liked it a lot. I make it at home and now don't like my own nearly as well. Great Maragaritas. The staff was friendly and put up with our more high maintenance guest, which is much appreciated. We will go back every time we return to Ojai!

In California it is pretty easy to get very good mexican food, however, I have found that Ojai is a bastion of pretty mediocre food with a few exception, this is not one of those exceptions. The salsa has no bite, very little flavor, a very tomatoey taste. They give the standard tortilla chips complementary with dinner, and they were... More

Wanting some great fajitas, we were directed to Agave Maria's. The chips were crispy and fresh, the salsa clumpy and hot but the fajitas were so saucy that it lost something in translation. I did enjoy the beans and made a meal of the beans, guacamole and sauce.

My wife and I arrived Ojai in the afternoon and stopped in to Agave Maria's for a light lunch. We wound up sharing a nacho plate and each having iced tea. We sat outside on a beautiful March day enjoying our surroundings with good table service and an excellent small meal. We noticed that the lunch entree portions were quite... More

My husband and I returned to this restaurant since we use to love their hearty salads and delicious salsas. This was the third time that we visited Agave Maria's. However, three days ago, we were both unhappy with the freshness and portion of our meals. The chicken chipotle salad consisted of primarily the white portion of the romaine lettuce with... More

Loved the food and margaritas. The food wasn't too spicy while the drink had a major kick (made with fresh ingredients). The price of the food wasn't too bad; the drinks were a bit pricey.

Agave Maria's is a nice inexpensive place for lunch or dinner. The outdoor patio is wonderful with plenty of heaters & a fireplace on chilly nights. The food is consistently great and the service is always speedy. Try the Pixie Margarita!!

Our first day in Ojai we had lunch at this restaurant. The food was excellent and service good. Each serving was more than ample. Located just off Ojai Ave., the main street through town.

We went to Agave Maria's twice during our time in Ojai. Enjoyed sitting in the spacious patio area under umbrellas on a hot day drinking margaritas (highly recommend the pixie margarita). We split the fajitas, chips and guacamole and were full. Enjoyed the music on Sunday afternoon.
