We live in town and first tried Agave about five years ago. We only been back three times since then because the food is delicious and authentic only most of the time, and the service continues to be spotty and amateurish. This time my wife ordered molcajete (which we've had before con mucho gusto), and I ordered the birria special.... More

Decided on a late lunch on the patio at Agave. Good choice. Freshest, crispiest tortilla chips with an elegant guacamole and a refreshingly icy margarita. Tried something different this time and ordered pork flautas with rice and beans. My server, Marlen, was cordial and efficient. Gracias!

Had the shrimp taco and 1 fish taco. Pretty good. I have had better, but also have had worse. Definitely would eat there again if in the area and desire for Mexican cuisine!

Great lunch for 6. The Chicken Mole Tamales and the veggie Quesadilla were outstanding. Ice cold Dos Equis amber on tap. The chips, salsa and guacamole were also top notch. Good, casual, comfortable ambience and great service! We are from Southern CA, but will return whenever possible.

Located in a strip center near the Safeway store. Carnitas is super, the best that I have ever had. My wife's Mole Negro De Oaxaca was darn good too. Guacamole - small - was small and the only item of less value $5.50. Margaritas $9.00 each.

While the food was presented very pleasantly, it was very bland and tasteless for Mexican food. The rice had no flavor at all and the carnitas tasted like a pork roast cooked with no seasonings.

My first exposure to Oxoacan food was a good one. The cuisine is refreshingly different from other Mexican restaurants. The ambience is cozy and the servioce was excellent.

This place does not serve regular Mexican food...all their dishes are a little "gourmet". E.g., their Mexican pizza has cabbage on it! One entree was "infused" with avocado leaves...whatever that means! Their pre-dinner chips were dry...when I tried to salt them, the salt just slid right off! Margaritas were strong. They tasted like they were made the old fashioned way...with... More

We searched pretty hard when we arrived in Healdsburg to find a restaurant where we could get some authentic Mexican homemade goodness. Oaxaca region was not something we expected to find, so we were pleasantly surprised to say the least. When we pulled into Healdsburg for the night, we spotted a couple places we could have tried, but one was... More

There are many taquerias in Healdsburg...even Zagat rated believe it or not, but after years of eating here in town I think Agave is clearly the best Mexican restaurant in Healdsburg. The restaurant interior is unique in that it is attractive and comfortable. The colors are nice and the atmosphere is pleasant. But the proof is in the food. Love... More
