We read the reviews and decided to try it. The staff was very friendly, good service. Prices were good, but too much fried food and the quality wasn't great. However, very good chips and salsa, just not impressed with the bar menu.

We are sorry you didn't like the Happy Hour food you chose. We have many non-fried items on the Happy Hour Menu, please join us again sometime and thanks for the feedback. Deba on behalf of owner Julian Ramos More

We have come to this restaurant a couple of times now with the family and both times had solid, but average experiences. Nothing really special about the food OR service. There are not many options for good mexican food in the Redmond area that we have found so far, hence the multiple visits. It's not that we've had bad food.... More

Unlike the retail stores surrounding it, you can access Agave from both the front (restaurant) and back (bar) parking lots, which is handy. The Happy Hour menu had a good choice of drinks and food, with chips and salsa etc while waiting. Quesadillas were especially tasty, service was really friendly. Enjoyed the visit.

Food is always pretty good and the happy hour menu has a good selection (and the portions are good). Drink prices are pretty good overall depending on the time/day of week. Bar area (much better space/look and feel than the rest of the restaurant) has patio in back that isn't too bad when it is nice out. Lots of TVs... More

I loved this restaurant. Unlike most Mexican restaurants, this is one where you want to order off the specialty entree section of the menu because they are amazing. The traditional carne asada was amazing. So so so good. The pork carnitas de cerdo was wonderful. I could eat those once a week and be happy. The margaritas and sangria were... More

First time here and we were a little disappointed. Had the cocktail of the day, it was delicious. Had one great kids meal, one average one. Main meals were nice, nothing amazing. Service was ok but again nothing special. Overall it was a decent meal but nothing to rave about.

All the expected dishes at a Mexican restaurant in the US. Just enough English in the menu to know what you're ordering. Reasonably attentive service, affordable pricing.

Love this place, some very interesting flavors, very subtle. The ceviche is the best I've ever had. Only complaint is that they had a big party on Thursday, so service was slow. But they are really nice people.

Have gone numerous times, many times bringing family and friends. My family,who eat Mexican food all the time, is from Arizona and they said the food is very good and very authentic.

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.
