"El Agave is one of our favorite restaurants, but we learned once again the lesson don't go to restaurants on Monday night. Very often restaurants are not at their best to park on Monday nights after they have worked so hard for the weekends. This was no different. We shall give them another shot, but not on a Monday night?"

"This is a unique restaurant that combines character and great food for an incredible dining experience. The restaurant is upstairs and does not look very special from the outside. As you enter, the walls and ceilings,are covered with the largest collection of Tequila that I have ever seen. Although it may sound corny, it's very cool. I felt like I."

"We prefer upscale Mexican food with creative menus rather than the everyday refried bean dishes. Old Town is a touristy town with many mexican restaurants with the ladies on display making home made tortillas. We originally had plans to go off the beaten path to El Agave but wondered if we should just try one of the tourist restaurants. But, we walked off the beaten path just to make sure so we didn't miss out. And we were certainly glad we did! For anyone touring Old Town in San Diego, you must walk off the beaten path slightly and find El Agave! Food was wonderful. Atmosphere was intoxicating with approx 2,500 bottles of tequila surrounding the dining room. Our server was very helpful with educating us the art of sipping tequila."

"Among the best restaurants I have ever been to. No. 1 Tequila museum in US and 2nd largest in the world. I love their Cactus Salad (nopale) and of course Margarita. The service is impeccable and we are melted in every respect."

"We have been to El Agave 6 times or more times over the last four years and have always had delicious meals with varied and unexpected tastes. Christmas Eve my husband had octopus and I had lamb shank both so good we didn't share! Not street Mexican for sure. I've recommended the restaurant often, received thanks from all including a vegetarian friend. They will go back. The service is friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. The house artisan margarita is the best I've tasted. Surely the special treat when in San Diego."

"This is my favorite restaurant in San Diego. The atmosphere is great, and the service has always been friendly. The food is the best and is different than anywhere else I've been. I recommend the moles and the cilantro soup... delicious."

"I selected this restaurant for a group of six because they accept reservations and have handicap access. The ambiance of the restaurant is very warm and inviting and I found it interesting to look at all their bottles of tequila. The servers were attentive, the food arrived quickly, and the presentation was lovely. The quality of the food was just average which surprised me because this restaurant is on the pricey side. Six out of six of us rated our meal as "just ok.""
