Agave Cocina & Cantina serving hand-crafted food that is preservative and lard free, organic whenever possible, delicious and healthy, open in Redmond since 2011.

Nice!

Was just here with a friend for the first time and we both really enjoyed our time there. The appetizer which was jalapeños stuffed with cream cheese and wrapped in bacon was amazing! The bacon was crispy and all of the flavors came together perfectly. We had another appetizer, but after two grand... read more

I'm originally from California, so I'm really picky when it comes to Mexican food. My arroz con pollo was the best I ever had! Mexican food is my husband's favorite,and he was really happy with the carne asada with prawns. We were with a group of friends, and everyone loved their meals, including the delicious margaritas!

But nothing special. In town for business and was looking for some good mexican food. It was ok. Nothing great and nothing bad. Unique margarita drinks. Fresh salsa as well as a spicy salsa with the chips.

The Agave moved into Bear Creek Village, replacing my previous favorite, Las Margaritas. At first I was sad to see my favorite go, then I tried Agave. Honestly, the food tastes better, the chips and salsa are better and the service is fast and friendly. Prices are fair, certainly not cheap, but you are getting what you pay for. My... More

My husband and I enjoyed dinner here for the first time last night, on a Groupon special. We had a reservation but when we arrived there were many empty tables. We had to wait quite a while before being seated, the hostess misread our reservation and thought we had a party of 6, had to arrange tables. Our meal started... More

I went there with a friend during lunch time. The chips/salsa were good. The portions and prices are reasonable too. But I prefer some other Mexican restaurants in the area.

We have been to Agave once before and I've been twice before. This visit was a wonderful improvement even though last time was good. Both of our dishes were excellent! Very nice!

We like coming here when we don't know what else we want to do but feel like relaxing in a big comfortable booth. There are a few things on the menu that are our favorites. Sometimes we venture away from our usual fare and are generally happy. They have a balance of all of the old classics along side some... More

We has take out from Agave last night and it hit the spot. Great steak salad and chicken enchiladas. Not your typical Mexican cuisine with lots of fresh veggies and healthy options. Easy and friendly phone ordering and pick up made it even better.
