“Hola! Shrimp!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

I had a shrimp cocktail that was really great. I lost count of how many big, fresh, tasty shrimp were in that glass with very flavorful avocado and spears of cuke and celery. Fresh tomatoes that had actual flavor in a tomato sauce that had not seen the inside of a can. Perfect for a patio lunch on a warm day. As for the margaritas, I had to have two just to be sure I was not dreaming. No bottled mix here, just fresh stuff with reputable tequila. Delicious.

“Real Mexican, really good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

Our third visit to Agave. Tasty, we'll prepared food. Shrimp dishes are excellent as are items with the traditional mole sauce. Wonderful, friendly service, and portions big enough to share. Highly recommended. Many Mexican families eat here. That is a very good sign of quality.

“Average Mexican food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

Some staff at a vineyard recommended this restaurant and since my husband loves Mexican food, we decided to give it a try. This restaurant is located in a strip mall so you would have to GPS to find it. I ordered the beef burrito and it was basically tasteless. My husband enjoyed his chile relleno and chicken enchilada a bit more. The agave margarita was good. We were told not to order the house margarita. This is a very simple place and I felt the service could have been better and friendlier.

“Awesome Food Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2014

We were returning from a short vacation to Pt. Arena and stopped in Healdsburg, Ca. After searching for a place to have lunch we decided to try Agave. Wow, what a delicious experience! The Mexican food was very authentic, in fact, the whole wheat tortillas were actual made in Mexico. There were four of us and we all truly enjoyed every bite. The service was great, the ambiance was delightful and the food was the frosting on the cake. If ever in Healdsburg make this a destination restaurant.

“Hard to find, but worth it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

Agave is tucked back in a small strip mall in Healdsburg, but it is well worth searching for. The atmosphere is fun and the food is fantastic. You won't be disappointed.
