Large family friendly restaurant. Very large portions, good margaritas. Traditional Mexican food. Enchilada average, and salsas good but not exceptional. Good place to bring kids, lively and lots of large tables.

We stopped by here just by chance and were really happy we did. The bar has a great Monday margarita deal for $5,50. The Happy Hour menu is pretty darn good, don't miss the jalapeño cheese dip or the nachos. Really tasty. Nice waitstaff and great TVs to watch your favorite sports playoff.

This restaurant is tucked into a shopping center. We only went, because we got a gift card. It was a darling place inside. The food was fantastic. We will go again!

I've eaten at Agave on several occasions both alone and with my wife. The food is consistently good and the service is helpful and friendly. I only wish the food was a little more creative. It is regular American Mexican fare.

The food is mostly good. I would recommend anything with chicken or Carne Asada. I would stay away from the shredded beef (usually my favorite) as it has given me heart burn on a number of occasions. The service is always good, and the atmosphere is good for casual dates or chatting with coworkers or clients.

We found that the Mexican food here was some of the best we've had in any restaurant in this area. The flavors exhibited freshness and a superb balance between fine, traditional flavors and appropriate spiciness. The service was very good although a little slow considering the small crowd that was present when we were there. The furnishings and carpet evoked... More

We love going to Agave because they serve some wonderful side dishes along with the traditional Mexican-American fare. You can almost always get roasted asparagus and they always have a vat of jicama slaw marinating. Their slaw is amazing, and a terrific accompaniment to their main courses. Now that we've figured out how to order a margarita that is not... More

We're always on the lookout for authentic Mexican food in the Seattle area (my partner is Mexican) and decided to give Agave a try. We made a reservation for 6:45 on a Friday night and were seated promptly. Our server was very kind and fluent in English and Spanish (good for my language practice). We ordered sopa de albodigas (traditional... More

I love this place! It is perfect when I need my "Mexican fix". They also have the best vegetarian variety I have ever seen in a Mexican restaurant. Service is attentive and friendly. I was especially touched on one visit when my adult son with disabilities was with us, and the waiter was so thoughtful around his needs. I've been... More
