We had bad food and bad service. Place looks nice on the outside but sooo disappointing once you sit down and eat. Heading to Soccer Taco next time.

We visited this restaurant for the first time this week and enjoyed the food. However, the service was not good. It was awful. The waiter did not come to the table during our entire meal. I had to find him to tell him I did not get any tortillas that were part of my order. To make matters worse, they... More

We ordered a bunch of appetizers and they were goo, but the margaritas were fantastic. I highly recommend the peach margarita! Our waitress ran herself like crazy while the other people working watched her. She was great. They were all friendly but just stood around while she took orders and made drinks.

From the friendly greeting to the great food, you will think you are in Mexico when you got to Agave Azul. The salsa and chips are how I remember they are served in Mexico City. And try a side of Guacamole too. Our dinners were delicious and flavorful. If you like your food spicy try Camarones ala Diabla (spelling?). There... More

We used to eat at Agave about once a week on the outside front patio. We have not been since last Fall, because we like to sit on the front patio. Apparently some things have changed since our last visit. We were going to meet friends and enjoy a beautiful Spring day in the sun on the front patio. We... More

Bought one of those LivingSocial coupons, but I mistakenly thought I was purchasing Agave Tequila Mexican instead of Agave Azul - BIG difference. This place was dark, slightly rundown looking, slightly dirty looking with mediocre food and just not an appealing place to go. The service was slow slow slow (but not rude) and we ended up hunting down our... More

I have been to many, many, many Mexican restaurants and have never had service so terrible. I do not like to give bad reviews, but they were rude and the food was barely warm. Maybe I caught them on a bad night but absolutely not even OK.

The restaurant is located in a shopping square and has both indoor seating (including a nice bar) and outdoor seating on a shaded terrace. The food is quite good. This place is a staple - Nothing for a special occasion, but definitely something you come back to.

Worst service ever, waiter is very unprofessional, and very mean. Asked to explain dish he got mad. I think he hates his job. Never will be back.
