Great place with fabulous food. You will enjoy the patio which is very comfy. The food was excellent and service even better. Portions are large and value is there in both food and drink. Go, it is a safe bet!

Mexican means Margaritas in my house, and these Agave Margaritas were very good. The sizzling fajitas were good with all the usual sides, and the Enchiladas Verde was the best I have ever eaten, though I missed the guacamole, and ordered a small side portion, and it was excellent too. At 7pm on a weeknight it wasn't heaving, just pleasantly... More

Dinner was just ok. Fresh chips Elsa and guacamole were good. Hoping for something more authentic. The ceviche was too warm. The dinner sizes were humongous . The fresh margarita was delicious.

The wife and I, on a recent first trip to Ojai, stopped by for a Mexican food dinner after scoping out another Mexican restaurant further east on the main strip. The patio area of Agave Maria's looked great for a meal on a late Friday afternoon. It wasn't that bad, actually. Food was ok, my only gripe was that the... More

We ate here for the third time last Sunday. The service was poor. The staff seemed stressed and were unfriendly; it was a bit busy. The reception station is in the middle of the patio and while people waited for their table they were hovering over our table and staring at us which was uncomfortable!. I ordered the shrimp salad...

This is a popular Mexican Restaurant in Ojai. My partner and I eat there quite regularly. the food is consistently good and prices are reasonable. They pride themselves on their different margaritas. my partner always has one. Chips and salsa are always fresh. Guacamole is very good.

The thing this restaurant has going for it is the outdoor seating. Food is ok but nothing special. Typical Ameri-Mex food. There's a bar, and that's most likely very helpful to this restaurant, as people do like their alcohol. Service is pretty good.

Stopped by for lunch. It is standard Mexican fare that is pretty good. Nothing blow away. The margaritas were average and expensive. They use a typical mix like they all do. You won't go wrong here but I would not go out of my way to come back.
