I had lunch on a Wednesday here with friends. Service was slow. It took awhile to get seated and to order. I ordered a drink, one friend ordered a beer and they came quickly. Our entrees came within a reasonable time. I had the chicken mole. The chicken portion was small for the price. It was dry and bony. The mole was mediocre. This is not a place if you don’t have a lot of time. I will not be back.

Agave Uptown has an upscale feel. A nice bar and multiple rooms with tables. I was by myself which may account for the less than stellar attention I got from my waiter. He was busy with other tables. That was my only disappointment. The food was superb. I will definitely give this place another try.

Beautiful place, excellent service, very delicious food taste, I ordered mole with chicken and I love it, 2 side rice and beans. By the way...I love the flan.

Stopped in for lunch and had a very good experience. The restaurant is very open and bright, very clean. The menu options were decent - not pages and pages of dishes. All 3 diners in our party commented on how fresh everything tasted. Would definitely go back!

Agave has the feel of an upscale chain restaurant and if I was in the midwest and never had authentic Mexican food I'd probably think this was great. But here in California, where there are so many wonderful options, I would not recommend it. It wasn't like the food was bad, it was just ordinary. I prefer the taqueria across the street.
