If you like Taco Bell, you will not like this place. This is a small family-run Mexican restaurant that stays close to its cultural culinary heritage. It pours an honest margarita, serves homemade salsas, and is staffed by family members. I feel like I'm eating in a Mexican home. My menu favorite... read more

The owner was rude. She yelled at our table a few times and even tried to kick us out. The Lightening game was on so when they scored we cheered. Apparently that's not allowed. The owner is like the "Soup Nazi" from Seinfeld. The servers were nice. The food is decent. I can't believe that the way the owner treats... More

On the recommendation of close friends, we went to Agave there after waiting for the snowbirds to migrate back to the North. Their style could be authentic, but I am a fan of the Tex-Mex style, the New Mexico style, and even the California style. Agave style is not like any of those, and my wife and I left food... More

My family has gone there several times, but never again. The food is very good, but way overpriced. However, the owner Nina is terrible. she is very rude, and if you have an issue with the way the food was served, she will tell you to not come back. Nina needs to find a customer service class and attend it... More

I've been going to Agave for a few years now, and have become acquainted with some of the servers. They are all actually very nice people, the biggest problem with Agave is its owner, Nina. She has no idea how to run a business, screaming is her favorite way of getting things done, and when a customer has a complaint... More

So we were very hesitant to eat here due to the reviews. Cesar was our server and he was funny, polite and spot on. Food was some of the best Mexican food we have had. I understand that places get busy and service may not always be great but we had no issues. Had chips, salsa with guacamole (fabulous), then... More

We went for lunch. The staff were super, the setting of the restaurant is perfect for a relaxing meal and the food was superb! Their salsa and chips was great to start, then excellent enchiladas carnitas! A joy to eat here and the bar looked inviting had it been after sunset.

We dined outdoors and had a wonderful dinner. Delicious Mexican food at reasonable prices. Would return again and can recommend. No problemas, no complaints. Enjoy!

I have eaten here 60 to 70 times since this place has been open and the owner knows me fairly well! I put up with occasional bad service because the food is good but never more! I had the worst restaurant experience I have ever had! The owner who has seen me eat here since day one yelled and argued... More

Where do I start? From the waiter who took my order and never returned and never brought our drinks, we had to reorder them from another server. Very slow service, the waitress and the owner Nina were both rude. Nina made excuses for the poor service. We had three different servers and they brought out duplicates of my friends drinks,...
