Found this place after returning on a Sunday from wine tasting in Sonoma county. We enjoyed the casual "vibe" and our waitress Amparo was wonderful. We spoke both Spanish and English and we all understood each other. I mistakenly ordered the chili verde versus the chili verde burrito, and the CV was the best that I had eaten in a long time. The mole de qaxaca was different and not what we had expected from other Mexican restaurants. The carnita chimichanga was great as were the tres tacos de lengua (tongue).

We didn't take part in the tequilla bar, but found the Mexican artifacts, art along with the color and motif just splendid. We will put this on our list to visit when we return with other friends on our wine tasting jaunts.

We thought this was a solid choice, but not anything special. I had the chicken mole and my SO had the pork carnitos taco combination plate. The mole was better than the carnitos. The rice and beans were good--better than average.

But this wasn't the full restaurant experience I'm looking for on a vacation. The restaurant lacks ambience and looks about like what you'd expect a restaurant in a strip mall to look like. Also, our server just disappeared at the end of our meal and we sat there for a while with the remains of our meal, wishing she'd show up again so we could ask for our check. While the food was good, it wasn't good enough to make up for these other lackings.

Agave was a very pleasant experience with very good food, the freshest ingredients, bright and clean surroundings and friendly and attentive staff. This will become a regular and recurring dinner (or lunch) location for us. The Tequila bar is extensive as you might expect from this popular restaurant's name. High quality and very authentic. Enjoy!. Located at 1063 Vine Street, Healdsburg, CA.

After a hard day in the saddle we wanted something filling and in an environment where your not judged by your appearance. We looked at a few Tex-Mex places in town and they were way to overboard for what we were looking for. We wanted good quality food, in large portions, served in a no frills environment, Agave delivered on every count!

While the waitress struggled with my English accent, and I struggled with hers, it made little difference. We were seated quickly and served drinks in no time at all. The beers were chilled and the selection was good. The quality and quantity of the food was well above the prices charged and we really enjoyed the atmosphere which was a lot more local than tourist.

Overall a great place to unwind and eat good food!

Every person in our group loved their meal. Located in a shopping center, but don't let that deter you. Great prices for great food. Try a michelada!
