Great food good prices

I love the cilantro cream sauce here! there were some changes a few years back which made thsi restaurant a bit shaky for awhile but it has bounced back! Often busy on the weekends. Can'tbeat the prices and taste!

Wonderful! We showed up without a reservation on a busy Friday night, and sat at the bar because there were no tables available. Very friendly service and amazing food. Even though it was packed, our food came very fast. The desserts were very good as well. We will definitely go back!

This place is small, but has the best nachos we have had in Ottawa!! The staff was friendly and the place was hopping on a Sunday afternoon. The nachos were well dressed (not a stack of chips with cheese on top) and came with 3 sides (s.cream, and 2 others). It was a perfect size for an afternoon snack b/w two people... We were very happy with this place...

Loved it!

A group of my friends came in for my fiancée’s birthday and we had an exceptional evening. The staff was both entertaining and curious. The new owner Les seemed more than happy that we had chosen Agave this evening. The food was amazing; other reviews which I have seen on this site have not done the Agave grill justice. My fiancée said his lamb was fantastic and I can only rave about the stuffed chicken. The sauce was phenomenal and the chicken was cooked just right. I recommend it!

We just came back tonight from having an awful dinner at Agave Grill (May 2008). We used to love this place for it's fresh menu and great service. There has obviously been some changes, and when we asked if the menu had changed, the server said "there have been a lot of changes" and walked away. The restaurant is noisy, we could not hear each other at all. The bathrooms are dingy and smelly, and the overall appearance of the restaurant seems to radiate uncleanliness and lack of pride in service. Now the food, the Mexican Flag - I probably could have made better at home using an Old El Paso Taco kit. Tequila Chicken was in a gluey sauce and luke warm. The plates did not look appetizing at all. I didn't finish my meal, and the server did not seem concerned. Not surprisingly, we will not be returning to this place we once felt was a gem in the west wellington village area.

My husband and I went there for dinner. We were not impressed with the decor, the food and the service was poor. We ordered entrees. The waiter forgot about it and he served the main course right away. We had to ask several times to have another drink. We will never go back it was a waiste of time and money.

While the decor is very simple and rustic it belies the hidden gem in the kitchen, the food is great and simple, it is nice to have the food that is not carbon-copy from a restaurant chain. The service is friendly and the food is light and not greasy as so many Mexican type menus are these days. There is no heavy onion odour. This restaurant is going to be one of our regulars!!

Very plain and uninspired interior. Food was completely sub-par. Tacos were cold soft shells with a few strips of chicken and some slices of heated onion - nothing else. served with bland rice and beans. Overall restaurant, washrooms, etc. did not look clean.

The Agave Grill is a true Gem in the Ottawa dining sector. The service was outstanding, the food amazing, and with the lovely atmosphere, it was one of the best experiences of our trip. If we did not spend as much time at the museum of civilizations today, we would have definitely gone back one more time before we had to leave the city. We went close to the end of the night so it was not too busy. Speaking with the General Manager after our meal, he said that they don’t even do much advertising as they are already very busy and desire to keep the level of service and customer satisfaction as high as it is - a true testament to their customer service. I can absolutely imagine how busy it gets due to the amazing overall experience they provide their customers. Oh yeah, I can not forget the desserts… they were to die for, and extremely reasonably priced considering their quality.

We have always had the chicken with the goat cheese and NEVER been disappointed. We begin with the guachamole, which, although it does not have as much cilantro as it used to is great. Kids like it and find things to eat that are good for them as well. Always start with the dart Warsteiner beer, fabulous. Never ever disappointed with either foor or service. N.B. the way the restuaruant front is sometimes it looks as though it is closed but it isn't really.

Excellent Mexican food, definitely the best margarita in town--Not the frozen type. Attentive, friendly service, casual atmosphere. Very good food, specials are always delicious. Been here for lunch & brunch--always good. Chips and salsa provided, but order the guac--its great! Desserts look awesome, but we're alsways too full!
