Great experience , kind of reminded me of Spain! Loved it!!
We stayed in Old Town for a week and went to El Agave 3 times. We went for the margaritas and came back for the food. Especially compared to the huge and more touristy places down the street, with margarita mix, rude service, and crowds. Not only a quiet, sophisticated setting among hundreds of tequila bottles (the 'tequila museum or library'), the drinks were best quality and creative. First night Aaron the bartender spent time with us suggesting the drinks. My fav was the pepino. We brought friends the next night and then our final night for dinner was here. The mole' are creative, loved the tri-color sampler. The roasted cauliflower appetizer is delectable. And then recommended by our waiter who had been there 17 years, the short rib poblano pepper risotto. Wow! That was incredible. Can't wait to return. Only fear is margaritas here may become a nightly stop :-D
The food was amazing and the service was exquisite!
Wonderful service, food, and drinks. Altogether a fantastic evening at El Agave! Would come back any day for any occasion.
We had a wonderful time! Our server Gerardo gave us the best service we’ve had at a restaurant in a long time. We know from experience that restaurant servers have busy shifts, so we really appreciated that Gerardo took his time to visit with us, share personal details about himself, take our pictures in multiple settings, get to know our palates so that he could recommend things that we’d really enjoy from the menu, and never once made us feel rushed or that we were taking too long. We definitely look forward to dining here again. El Agave has been put on our list of places to take friends and family.
Wonderful food, service, drinks, and vibe. Sit on the indoor patio overlooking the sunset if you can.
Dinner for 2, he had the tiger prawn and I had the salmon natas. We were both very happy with our selections. Mine included mole rojo, wonderfully complex!
Best margaritas we've had in years. Service was great. Our appetizer, the Chalupas de Cameron were fantastic, however our tacos were underwhelming. I had the Tacos de Carnitas and they were very dry and tasteless. My wife had the Tacos de Pescado and they were okay, but nothing special. We've had much better tacos in San Diego. Stick with the appetizers, or maybe try the moles.
Amazing as always! They were so careful about our allergies too! I’m still glowing from the delicious food and tasty drinks.
The food was fabulous. Our server gave me the impression he had a better table to wait on. However I am on vacation, so I let it go, and enjoyed the delicious food and great company.
Great customer service and the food is delicious too!
This was our first time here. Trip advisor gave it wonderful reviews and so did open table. I would have to say it was amazing. The service was top notch. The food was amazing along with the margaritas. I highly recommend trying this place out.
Complex flavors, beautifully prepared and presented. We had two mole dishes and the Chile relleno, and all were delicious. We all had the earthy, unusual and wonderful tamarind margaritas, and will have them again.
Fabulous food with rich mole sauces set this menu light years ahead of other Mexican establishments.
Tequila lovers take note!!
Great customer service. My husband and I had a great time. Amazing food. Will definitely come back and highly recommend it.
6 tequila loving friends, who all live part time in Jalisco, went primarily for Chiles en Nogada but were 2 days too late, but not disappointed in what we ended up with (The Chile Relleno was similar and fabulous) Wonderful experience!
great ambiance, not loud at all. simple menu that doesn't overdo it. i had the guava margarita which was fresh and delicious. highly recommend the ceviche trio to start, then i had the cesar salad with shrimp since i was full from the chips and salsa/bean dip (also excellent).
Wonderful restaurant, I dine here every chance that I can and I don’t live in San Diego. Tasty, well done and creative meals that do not part from their origin. Everything is good. Service is warm and perfect. Love El Agave.
Wide variety of Tequila options. Would like more food choices. Pretty pricey
Good food! Very cool old world ambiance. Friendly staff
Chile en Nogoda was excellent as was quesadillas with the squash blossoms. We hated the short rib which was a large portion. It was quite good with the Rissoto like rice with the poblano strips, onions, and squash blossoms. Overall exceptional meal. Definitely return when back in town
Very small intimate restaurant great service since the start. Food was good drinks are delicious and taste was good.
We love everything about El Agave. The dishes are delicious and much more sophisticated than mainstream Mexican restaurants. In the fall, they offer a dish called Chile de nogada which is decorated like the Mexican flag with a pomegranate, chopped nuts and herbs sauce . It is to die for. The servers are very pleasant and efficient. Can’t wait to go again.
Loved it as usual.
This place was exactly what we needed after a nice hike by Point Loma. Fantastic tacos, salsa, and micheladas. My wife and I were very pleased.
We had a great time food was delish and the tequila flights were amazing we will be back ..
On a last minute we decided to go have dinner after my daughters graduation. Open Table never disappoints, I found El Agave. Never been here. The ambiance was amazing. Romantic. Beautiful decor. Food amazing. Service amazing. The price is a little higher than normal but it’s worth it.
Amazing tequila selection!
Great Mexican food. The best. I have gone a few times. I have never been disappointed
Amazing experience, an food was above and beyond!!! Had the best margarita in my life!!
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
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.
Another great evening at El Agave! Alberto delivered again, with exceptional food, drinks and service!
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.
