“Best Mexican Food I've Ever Had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2013 via mobile

Had an amazing dinner here. Definitely the best Mexican food I've had in Ottawa and anywhere else I can think of. The Flautas were a great appetizer, just the right texture and amazing taste. I had a pretty standard item for a main course (chimichanga) but it was exceptional. Definitely made with care and tastes so fresh, just like all the food here!
A few things to note would be that the empanadas are made with a corn tortilla. Still good but not how most people make them. The cocktails are pretty pricey (like the margaritas for example). And the deserts weren't out of this world but still very good.
Service was great, friendly and fast. Make a reservation on busy nights and enjoy!!!

“The best nachos in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I went to Agave Grill for a late Saturday lunch of nachos and a beer after reading about this restaurant in Ottawa Magazine.
I must say that their nachos are the best we've ever had! Three separate dishes of sour cream, mild salsa and hot green sauce accompany the nachos. We also got a side dish of their fabulous homemade fresh guacamole!
Delightful.
Two lovely imported beers on tap served in their respective name brand steins. Very classy.
We will definitively be back.

Great clean tasting Mexican food. Lovely decor and excellent service. A real gem in Ottawa. Seems popular for business lunches. Delicious deep fried ice cream. Great drinks too!

“My new favorite!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

We have been to the Agave Grill twice in the last 3 weeks. The first time was great and we wanted to see if they could deliver the same quality, flavor and atmosphere a second time. Well I must say they did. Les and Diane are great hosts and make you feel welcome. Their margaritas are good and the sangria is great. The food is great, and reasonably priced for a small boutique restaurant like this. Job well done and we will be back again.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

Visited for the first time with hubby. We enjoyed the food, never had a shrimp burrito before and it was good. Chimichanga was good too. A little pricey but mexican but food is nice for a change. We will return.
