A relaxing mexican flair for the night.

Food was good, not impressed at all by my woman server. Because of the service, I did not go back a few weeks later.I expect when seated to be given a menu. Also ut should not take 15 minutes to return with my drink. Which by the way was so so. Dinner was very good. I was alone and my... read more

The atmosphere seemed nice and there were a lot of people in the place, so we took that as a good sign. Unfortunately, the items we ordered, tortilla chicken soup and tacos, were pretty bland and flavorless. They were adequate but nothing to recommend. In a town with more than one Mexican restaurant, it seems you could find a better... More

We happened upon Agava Maria's while exploring Ojai and decided to give it a try. It was filled with local people (always a good sign) and the terrace was very dog friendly. The drinks were well assembled and the food servings were ample and tasty. The service was very friendly and sitting outdoors on the quiet terrace made for a... More

This was our third (and best) trip to Agave Maria's. The wait staff was very attentive and informative. And this time I ordered the beef fajitas. They were sizzling and delicious, served with choice of flour or corn tortillas, rice and the best refried beans ever! The last time I wrote a review, I mentioned that the chips tasted rather...

Looking for dog friendly restaurants...and loving Mexican food...we found an adorable restaurant off the main drag with great ambiance. Patio was lush and lit for atmosphere...very relaxing and comfortable. Had excellent service...very attentive to us and our dogs. Menu was very well priced...and the chili relleno was superb!

My parents and I ride our bikes here along the bike path. Delicious salsa, chips and Mexican food. I ordered the Rellenos. Yummy

I've always loved the atmosphere - especially when it was the old Antonios back in the 80's. But somehow the reputation for great margaritas spilled over to the new Agave; as many times as I've gone with friends, the margaritas are weak and inconsistent. I find it's not authentic mexican and lacks flavor in many dishes. Be aware also -... More

We had margaritas all night long, they were so good! Loved watching the busy action from the bar area and getting to know the bartender! I was freakishly addicted to the salsa. I wasn't impressed initially since i thought it was a canned salsa at first. I quickly realized how great green and red onions were in salsa!! I normally... More
