“Awesome Food Experience”
Reviewed 13 February 2014

We were returning from a short vacation to Pt. Arena and stopped in Healdsburg, Ca. After searching for a place to have lunch we decided to try Agave. Wow, what a delicious experience! The Mexican food was very authentic, in fact, the whole wheat tortillas were actual made in Mexico. There were four of us and we all truly enjoyed every bite. The service was great, the ambiance was delightful and the food was the frosting on the cake. If ever in Healdsburg make this a destination restaurant.

“Hard to find, but worth it.”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

Agave is tucked back in a small strip mall in Healdsburg, but it is well worth searching for. The atmosphere is fun and the food is fantastic. You won't be disappointed.

“Not your typical Mexican restaurant”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

This restaurant was suggested by the B&B we were staying, and it was a great find while on vacation at Healdsburg. Wonderful choices beyond your typical Mexican selections. Food was fresh, health ingredients, and great service. By far, the best Mexican food I have eaten.

“Get the taco salad”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Taco Salad is the safe bet for me --- hard to screw up. The Mole was not my favorite. Sauces are not authenic. Stick with anything that has no sauce and it is pretty good.

“Not the greatest.”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

I was very disappointed in the chicken mole at Agave. The sauce (mole negro) was delicious and complex, but the chicken, itself, was dry and stringy. The margaritas were pretty weak--not much tequilla in them. I much prefer the mole colaradito at El Faralito just off of the main square in Healdsburg.
