excellent food, service and ambiance, perfect for any out to dinner occasion
Been going to El Agave for 20 years .. great experience .. even if you are not a Tequila fan. El Agave staff is perfect accent to endless Tequila menu! Nice treat to Old Town experience!
I’d give the place 6 stars if I could.
Our waiter was great! He really made it an experience. He gave great recommendations and the alcoholic drinks were great!
Food was coooold and slow
I have dined here many times and have not ever had a bad meal or time. El Agave is an amazing restaurant to have drinks, lunch or dinner at.
If you go out for dinner and then slowly realize that it is so much more, then you have just enjoyed a culinary experience. When you stop talking and start tasting because you are experiencing every flavor and texture then that’s a wonderful moment. I have never tasted such exquisite Mexican food in my life. I cannot even compare it to my grandmothers cooking because it surpassed any Mexican cuisine I have ever had. Wonderful! Muchos gracias!
Went here for Valentine’s Day with my boyfriend and our friends and everything was great! From the ambiance, drinks, to the food we loved it!
Delicious food and drinks. Server was amazing and we had the best time. I highly recommend coming here for dinner. It’s the best.
Valentine’s Day. Table location was poor, chips and salsa were delicious. Food was decent.
Horrible customer service, food overpriced and salty. Better off going to a real Mexican restaurant. The food served here isn’t authentic at all.
While I truly enjoyed everything that I ate, I would've liked it if our waiter checked in on us more often. We caught ourselves looking for and waiting on our waiter several times.
Visiting our daughter in San Diego and we had a wonderful evening at El Agave. Food and service was great. Restaurant itself was a little dark and dated, and location was a bit strange (second floor of what appeared to be a strip mall, but overall excellent experience. Thank you
Amazing food! Wonderful drinks! Staff was awesome.
A beautiful little restaurant for a date night. The drinks are to die for and the food is even better. Honestly one of the nicest upscale Mexican restaurants I have ever been to. Cannot wait to come back.
Food was exceptional as always; never in 20 years of dining there, have we ever had bad dining experience; staff was good as ever
Food is always delicious, I have tried many items on the menu and they have all been very good. Love the Don Jose Mole Enchiladas and the Enchiladas Verdes and the Jamiaca margaritas are the bomb
Covid outside seating only .. so sltho its an honest review, inside seating would have resulted in a higher rating
Waiter was amazing. Food was meh.
Great friendly service. Outside since of Covid.great Cadillac margaritas. Chips and guacamole and salsa were a bit. Octopus entree was amazing!!! Everyone enjoyed their tacos
We loved it, very authentic and great presentation!
Such an amazing restaurant. Amazing food and fantastic service. What more could you want!
El Agave is one of the best kept secrets in San Diego. 5 Star food always. The service is First Class.
It was a perfect birthday dinner for a husband that loves tequila
Food was infesting and yummy and fun tasting flights of tequilas
Love the ambiance! Quit and intimate but not stuffy. Our waiter was friendly and informative. I had a trio of the Sopes and felt that the shrimp was to fishy. The Moles recommended by our waiter were both delicious. Will be back!
Great food. Amazing tequila list. Favorite spot.
Had friends in from out of town and thought we would treat them to a little higher end Mexican food from other regions in Mexico. All enjoyed. Presentation was excellent as was the food.
El Agava also seemed to take special precautions due to the pandemic. Thanks
It was really awesome and tasty. Loved it and Francisco was great and knowledgeable.
Best Mexican restaurant in SD
Always a treat. El Agave is gourmet Mexican food and over-the-top tequila.
Served by an educated wait staff who can discuss tequila like fine wines, our last visit recommended a fine tequila with "a vanilla finish". This visit included one with "notes of banana"...and they were! Unique, hard to find...and no one beats their sangrita!
Best lunch in San Diego!!!
Both times we dined there we enjoyed it thoroughly. The food is gourmet Mexican and everything has always been delicious. Even better, the servings are generous. The food isn't cheap, but you get what you pay for, so if you have a special occasion, or just feel like treating yourself to something a cut above the rest, this is the place.
Because of the pandemic, seating is out on the enclosed porch area. We chose a seat near the window, because it is still more enclosed than being outside. The ambience is very nice and the service was good, as well. Well recommended.
Great view, calm vibe, excellent staff! Definitely coming back!
New menu. Delicious. No more lobster burritos, but a number of favorites, sopa de cilantro, puplpo. The sopes appetizer very good.
Salsas have been updated, bean dip always delicious, but so are the other two!
Only caution, is that if you are immune compromised , the shields are good, unless sitting on the enclosed patio, opposite the open windows, where the diners are sitting at bar stool height, and the breeze blows inwards and you are sitting at regular table height.
Also, the new seating is designed to be very stiff & upright.
The restaurant was great. Awesome family vibes, and friendly staff. Would recommend to a friend.
A little chaotic at check in/ we waited a while to be checked in and seated even though we had a reservation. However, once we were seated, we had great service. Margarita was good, a little expensive, but worth it. Food was delicious. Thought the tacos came with rice, but they didn’t serve it. I decided to skip asking because i ate some many chips. Overall very good.
Had a great time and lots of margaritas! Really enjoyed the patio atmosphere overlooking Old Town!
Mole, huitlacoche, Tequila are some of my favorite things in the world. And here they are!
refined food , great service. Not run-of-the-mill Mexican food.
