We have been to the Agave Grill twice for dinner. The first time, we left disappointed. The second time, very satisfied. I will admit, we discussed our concerns with Carlos, the manager. He listened to our comments and stepped up to the plate.
Agave Grill occupies the old Waterstone location. It has a couple of very nice rooms that never had a chance before. With the current menu and Carlos at the helm, I think it has a good chance of success.
After sitting down, you will be served a basket of warm, fresh tortilla chips and homemade salsa, just like the Mexican restaurants south of the line. They have all of the tequila drinks that you would expect from a Mexican cantina. Unfortunately, they don't quite make the grade. I'd love to send Carlos down to La Guadalahara in San Diego to see how a Margharita should be made. Oh well, we are north and they are south.
The food is another story. The dishes are tasty, reasonably priced and plentiful. Service is good, however, we found as the restaurant got busier on a Friday night, some of the staff were running and having a hard time keeping up. Good to hire a couple extra staff, and make sure needs are met. I should also point out that there was a table of about 20 celebrating a birthday party just behind us. Still, what better place to do it. They just need to be sure to have the staff to service groups like this.
If you haven't been, check it out. This is a fun place and we need more like it in Langley.
