Fantastic Mexican food

Located in a strip center near the Safeway store. Carnitas is super, the best that I have ever had. My wife's Mole Negro De Oaxaca was darn good too. Guacamole - small - was small and the only item of less value $5.50. Margaritas $9.00 each.

While the food was presented very pleasantly, it was very bland and tasteless for Mexican food. The rice had no flavor at all and the carnitas tasted like a pork roast cooked with no seasonings.

My first exposure to Oxoacan food was a good one. The cuisine is refreshingly different from other Mexican restaurants. The ambience is cozy and the servioce was excellent.

This place does not serve regular Mexican food...all their dishes are a little "gourmet". E.g., their Mexican pizza has cabbage on it! One entree was "infused" with avocado leaves...whatever that means! Their pre-dinner chips were dry...when I tried to salt them, the salt just slid right off! Margaritas were strong. They tasted like they were made the old fashioned way...with... More

We searched pretty hard when we arrived in Healdsburg to find a restaurant where we could get some authentic Mexican homemade goodness. Oaxaca region was not something we expected to find, so we were pleasantly surprised to say the least. When we pulled into Healdsburg for the night, we spotted a couple places we could have tried, but one was... More

There are many taquerias in Healdsburg...even Zagat rated believe it or not, but after years of eating here in town I think Agave is clearly the best Mexican restaurant in Healdsburg. The restaurant interior is unique in that it is attractive and comfortable. The colors are nice and the atmosphere is pleasant. But the proof is in the food. Love... More

Always attentive service, even reminding us to take our to go box after we'd left the table. Refilled my soda automatically (asking first of course). I love the mango and fresh salad on the taco. side of black beans - a delicious semi-healthy meal for me!

This is Mexican food from the Oaxaca region and is very different in flavors from other Mexican foods. The foods are very fresh and full of flavors. Very friendly staff and helpful with menu choices. Great tequila bar as well. You need to try a dish with mole and read the story of how it's made. You'll go back!
