“Coast Trip”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

While on a motorcycle trip up the coast I decided to ride a nice mountain hwy (33) this will take you to Ojai. I decided to have lunch due to the very welcoming patio.
Here is a quick overview:
Service - acceptable
Food - at or above average
Chip & Salsa - very good
Margaritas - very good as well
Overall a good if not great place for lunch :)

“Very good traditional Mexican food”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

Loved the pixie margarita. Asked for and received hotter hot sauce and made all the difference because it was a bit bland for us. We love Mexican food and this gave us what is expected. We would definitely go again when in Ojai.

“Great Food”
Reviewed 23 December 2013

My first visit to Ojai, CA was enhanced by a nice lunch at Agave Maria's! The margaritas are quite tasty! My cousin had Carne Asada salad. She said it was fresh and delicious. I had the Chicken Tortilla soup. I expected it to be watery/thin. Instead it was quite thick and hearty. Which was perfect for a cool day. (note: We were told they don't cook with lard). I'd go back again.

“VERY GOOD FOOD!”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

First time at this restaurantnt even if we come to Ojai at least a couple of times a year; we tried other Mexican Restaurant before but they had an event and decided to give Agave Maria's a try.
We started with the chips and salsa along with some margaritas (the pixie ones are awesome on the rocks) and my friend tried different ones and all were very good but I'm still favoring the pixie ones...the food came withing 10-15 minutes at most and hot and tasty, their menu is extensive and we all enjoyed our meals; service was every attentive but not intrusive and I'll tell you that our second choice was a very good choice. We'll return on our next trip to the beautiful Ojai Valley!
