The soul of Mexican moles, made from scratch with pasilla, ancho and mulato chilis as well as other ingredients such as "tomatillo" (green tomato), clove, black pepper, chocolate, garlic, cinnamon, coriander seed, sesame seed and more. Served over chicken with rice Agave style
Roasted poblano pepper stuffed with sautéed mushroom, garlic and epazote (amaranth), finished with a warm vegetable vinaigrette
The authentic recipe from Tijuana
The food was excellent. The service was excellent. I was not comfortable with the seating. With the high cases of COVID and the restaurant not requiring masks to be worn when walking around the restaurant, I don't thing they should fill the restaurant to capacity. No social distancing was enforced.
Octopus was really good. Same with the pork belly sliders.
Will come back for sure
Fabulous - Alberto is a rock star!!
we had the see bass and medallions. My wife loved the sea bass, the medallions the steak was perfect but I would look for something spicer
Another great evening at El Agave! Alberto delivered again, with exceptional food, drinks and service!
The atmosphere was boring no good music they play jazz at a mexican restaurant it was so upsetting! The food is expensive & the quality is not very good my enchiladas had no flavor the chicken was dry! over all I came out to visit san diego and found this place on my maps but will def never return! I’d say look for something else.
Best Mexican I’ve experienced in a while. Ambiance is exceptional. My wife and I loved it. Our waiter Jorge transported us south of the border for an evening. Service was spot on. Blood orange Marg: Boom. Worth the short trip out of downtown.
Reliable gormet Mexican style foods. The pulpo appetizer is perfectly cooked and served generously. Moles are a house specialty made from scratch and always a delight.
This is a lovely find and a San Diego treasure. Great food and ambiance.
Comfortable, not stuffy, yet with a European style. If Tequila is your thing, this is your place.
Fabulous as always. Best fine dining Mexican in San Diego and spectacular service.
If you LOVE tequila... this place is for you. This place has the most assortment of tequila I have seen. You will definitely LOVE this place.
Great food. Great ambience. Great drinks. Best Mex anywhere
The service was slow and rude. We waited 10 minutes for water and another 10 before we saw our waiter the first time.
For first timers, the food and drinks were so good. We sat outdoors on the patio area and enjoyed the privacy since we were the only ones there. We may have been louder than the cars driving by lol
We often eat dinner at El Agave and we have never had a bad experience. At our recent lunch, however, the experience was not good.
The food was cold and bland without any flavor whatsoever. The mole had no taste and no spice level.
Hopefully this is just the lunch experience and will not replicate itself at dinner.
This is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is always outstanding. We’ve never had a bad meal. The service is very good, friendly and knowledgeable about the menu.
Amazing food and outstanding drinks. This is a terrific restaurant and the staff are happy to help. Do not miss this restaurant.
Order any of the Mole’. And you will be so Happy!!!!!!!
Great food preparation. Nice atmosphere. Lots of Tequila choices.
Great place to get Fantastic Mexican Food! I would recommend this gem to anyone.
Delicious! I woke up the next day thinking about my meal…
Portions were on the small side considering the cost.
Came on the recommendation of a friend and found an underrated gem. Excellent food, great atmosphere. The restaurant was busy (it was a Saturday night) but the outdoor table was perfect to dine and have a conversation. I'll be back.
We love the food & margaritas! Great time with our 4 yr. old granddaughter's birthday, after a day at the S. D. Zoo. The service was great and the food super. I've got to try something other than the delicious sea bass, but love the sauces and tender fish! Glad to see El Agave has survived Covid and seemed busy! Great time & happy birthday Wren!
The food was wonderful and the service was friendly and helpful.
Very satisfying experience. Had the salad with beets, figs, goat cheese and the chicken mole.
Overall the food was okay. Chicken mole dish was spicy for my husband. The specialty dish poblano chili was tasty per my friend. Sauce was high light.
The margarita was bland and pricey. Very little tequila in it. My fish small tacos were bland. Needed some avocado.
Service was excellent and ambiance was comfy and conducive to conversation.
Will possibly return.
Ordered the special, an item only available for a month or so. It was outstanding and the service was great as always
Creative menu & wonderful service.
Best upscale Mexican cuisine in San Diego...personal favorite...
A little noisy but we were moved to a quiet table! They were very busy. The food was very good.
Tequila... tequilla... tequilla... wow! Who knew this was a tequila museum with amazing food and friendly staff. What an experience
Outside seating is cramped and unattractive. Food good. Service excellent
Margherita was watery and didn’t seem to have any tequila. Food was cold and tasteless. Mole sauce tested like plain tomato sauce. Beans were cold. We paid the bill and left the food untouched.
Food was uneven, some dishes ( cilantro soup, tuna ceviche, duck burritos) were very good, some mediocre.
Margaritas were very tasty but not very strong.
It was such a cozy and ornate atmosphere. I didn’t even know so many tequila’s existed! The food was delicious but the service was a little slow. Also the flan is delicious.
Such an enticing environment, complimented by the wholesome service. It felt the closest thing to an authentic tequila bar and our food was absolutely tasteful. I’d recommend this place to anybody ✨
Great find. Definitely worth the Uber ride from downtown.
Eat out one of the standup tables with a view to the west. Try not to go on the weekend -very crowded unless you have a reservation. Service and food are outstanding!
Great food and service. Definitely recommend making a reservation.
