Food was exceptional. A little bit in the noisy side, but to be expected with such a kid friendly environment. Excellent value.

A group of college friends gathered for a mini reunion and we could not have picked a better spot. Sweet Agave was perfect -- delicious fresh food, friendly servers, great cocktails, and an atmosphere conducive to talking. I will definitely be returning with my family and friends . More...

The house margaritas are always welcome and the fajita platter hits the spot.

This was our second trip to Sweet Agave. We went to get a bite before going dancing at Glen Echo Park. We love the food, and the table service is very friendly. This salsa that comes free with fresh chips is especially delicious. I had some delicious fish tacos, and my partner enjoyed the enchiladas carnitas. This time, the restaurant was very busy, and it took a long time to get our meal. Our server volunteered to take one entree off the bill, which we thought was way more than required, but very kind. We will definitely be back soon. More...

Sweet Agave is coming along nicely as a neighborhood go-to. Quiet, friendly, attentive service, good Tex/Mex food. Highly recommend the fish tacos. And the Margaritas.

A great happy hour. Three dollar corona bottles between four and six and an incredible chicken nacho.

Hidden gem. Went during Happy Hour so crowds were not an issue. Service was great, food very good, although neighborhood setting makes parking a challenge. Will definitely go back.

I have come to expect good food, friendly and attentive service from servers/ bartenders who recognize me. That’s exactly what i got tonight! As always the staff is friendly and welcoming. They greeted me with a smile, a menu and and immediately asked me what I would like to order. The attentive nature of the staff is fantastic. Another good experience! Thank you! More...

Another good meal at Sweet Agave! Becky greeted me and my friend with a smile! She was warm and welcoming and so was the rest of the staff. As always the experience was solid. Becky is friendly and easy to talk to. The other servers and support staff are friendly and welcoming. This is a great neighborhood spot and I’m so happy it’s here in the neighborhood! Thanks Becky!

Everyone who works there is so great ! Always accommodating with making vegan options for me . The margaritas are real fresh squeezed lime juice not the crappy overly sugared pre mixes you find at the other Tex Mex restaurants . Great addition to our neighborhood in the Palisades ! More...

This is the second time I’ve come into Sweet Agave, and again Becky was behind the bar. I walked in not knowing there was a big party going on. There was a great energy in the room with everyone socializing and eating/ drinking. Everyone’s energy in the room was amazing thanks to the staff and the kitchen. Becky seems so comfortable behind the bar and giving everyone good service. A fun night with good food! I’m definitely going to be back soon. Thank you to the back of the house for another good meal!

A good experience. The food was good. The service was good. The atmosphere was good. I will be back! Becky was the bartender and she was nice and able to answer questions I had about the food and recommend the patron margarita. I think this is a good neighborhood place and I’ll be back soon! Thank you! More...

From the expertly prepared margaritas to the house made Poblano Enchiladas, the Sweet Agave is a nice respite from the hustle and bustle of DC politics.....Becky and her staff serve up traditional and off beat specials for the discriminating Sonoran palate..... Nestled on the MacArthur Blvd corridor in Palisades, here is where friends and family come to fiesta......olé More...

We enjoyed fish tacos and camarones a la Agave. In a cuisine that sometimes seeks fire over flavor, both of these showed care and creativity, with the focus on taste. Both were accompanied by rice and veggies--with the shrimp, a large helping of steamed carrots, broccoli, asparagus etc. that was delicious. Good selection of beer and wine. More...

This restaurant is wonderful. I took my two kids under 12 there on a Monday night at 6:00pm. We were encouraged by the good reviews and wanted to give a local new restaurant a chance. It was quiet due to the time and extremely pleasant. Our waitress was kind and patient. The menu was complete.Delicious and simple. Complimentary chips and salsa arrived at the table immediately. We started with the Mexican corn ( it was beautiful and roasted). Got all the toppings on the side and it was really nicely presented.All sauces and tortillas made in house. Salsa was perfect. Mild but super tasty and light.I had shrimp tacos with lime. Light and so refreshing. Mole chicken enchiladas that almost tasted like dessert. So cocoa and cinnamony. Everyone loved them.We got a seasoned skirt steak with an over easy egg on it. Egg was perfect and the steak was cooked well and not too tough. Desserts looked great but I was so full. Def a family friendly place. Had two house margaritas that were some of the best I ever had. Very reasonable prices. My new favorite Mexican local hangout. More...

We had good draft IPAs. I had ribs; my husband had chicken fajitas. We both enjoyed our meals. They were inexpensive and good. Portion size was just right. The wait staff couldn't have been more attentive or nicer. We will definitely return. More...

We really enjoyed our first time visiting this newly opened Tex Mex restaurant. My two boys shared a kids chicken quesadilla; loaded with cheese and chicken, they devoured it! My wife really loved her spinach quesadilla; as a vegetarian she doesn’t always feel she has great options at restaurants, but she found the veg range at Sweet Agave to be quite good. My chicken taco salad was delicious and a very satisfying portion. SG has a nice neighborhood feel to it as a restaurant- we will definitely come back. More...

Nice alternative to Uncle Julio's - far less chaotic and tasty, reasonably-priced Tex-Mex.

Food was excellent -- I am a mexican food aficionado and this is a top 3 mexican restaurant for NW DC. As a Californian transplant to DC, it was nice to see some quality Mexican food served in a casual setting with kid-friendly service. Good variety on the menu but not overwhelming. A great addition to the Palisades neighborhood! More...
