“Not the greatest.”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

I was very disappointed in the chicken mole at Agave. The sauce (mole negro) was delicious and complex, but the chicken, itself, was dry and stringy. The margaritas were pretty weak--not much tequilla in them. I much prefer the mole colaradito at El Faralito just off of the main square in Healdsburg.

“Yummy Mole - Very Good Value”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

The MOLE is the very best - both the chicken and the carnitas. Their other foods are great too and the service is very good. This is more of a family style restaurant.

“Never going back”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

I've been to Agave twice sinced it open once 4 years ago (which was good) but my second visit it was horrible!! Flautas (hard tacos) were soggy & sweet with walnuts (not Mexican at all) chicken mole & rice was horrible. Mole did not taste like mole and the rice tasted like a can tomatoe sauce.Food not fresh at all! Not what I was expecting for a Friday night dinner. I don't recommend it if you expect to have authentic Mexican food. Not to mentioned theres flies everywhere. Very disappointing!

“Delicious Burritos!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

I don't know what it is about California burritos, but they're just so much better. Agave is a great choice!

“Fresh Ingredients and Excellent Preparation”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Our party of four found Agave to be an excellent mid-market Mexican restaurant. We each had a different item from their menu. We were uniformly pleased. I had the Super Burrito and found it to be extremely well prepared with fresh local ingredients. Service was congenial, prompt, and attentive to detail--the salsa and chips were refreshed without having to ask. There is a good selection of local beers as well as the expected national and Mexican brands. The owner/manager, a local businessman, personally stopped by our table and asked if everything was to our liking.
