The food was simply fantastic.
This restaurant is a neighborhood gem but also worth a drive from anywhere in the Scottsdale area. A varied New Mexico centric menu with reasonable prices. Just an outstanding experience in every way."

Dined this past Saturday and
thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food was awesome and our server was attentive. The owner stopped by and checked on us, made us feel special. Will recommend to friends and family."
Dined on 3/8/2014
I've been there several times and
enjoyed each time. We always sit on the patio which is charming. The food is Santa Fe style with an excellent menu encompassing full dinners and smaller plates and great variety of choices. They have a good wine list and the service is prompt and over the top customer friendly. Over all a very pleasant dining experience! I would definitely go back."
Dined on 3/7/2014
We love the food here, but we
weren't sure that our out of town guests would feel the same way. But they thought it was great too. The Cruz Kitchen Signature is always a good selection because you get to try 3 of their best items. But for most people, be prepared to take home leftovers. It's a lot of food! I have somewhat of a complaint about the noise level. We've been here numerous times when there has been live music in the bar, and the music was enjoyable and not too loud. But it was very loud this visit. It was difficult to hear each other at the table. Maybe it was just this particular performer ..."
Dined on 3/6/2014
We came with a group and had a
wonderful time! Our waiter was attentive, funny and helpful. The margaritas were terrific and special dishes we'd recommend: Blue corn seafood enchiladas, raspberry chipotle pork tenderloin and meatloaf. Delicious appetizers too"
Dined on 3/5/2014
Hi We have been in Phoenix for six
days and really hadn't yet had an excellent meal. Then we found Blue Adobe Grill on Urban Spoon and it was everything the reviews had promised. Interesting selection, delicious good and outstanding, friendly, well-informed server. It was noisy but not too noisy - more of a nice, lively feel. And the best part was you could make a reservation online."
Dined on 2/28/2014
A+ for service, drinks, and food.
Its been years since I can remember being so completely satisfied with a dining experience. We were seated promptly despite arriving to a very very full restaurant a little early for our reservations with a friendly smile. Drinks were A++ with the "must try going to the Don Culio. The entrees were just as advertised, traditional mexican cuisine taken to a much much higher "new" Mexican level. Beef tenderloin in a chile relleno breaded in panko instead of the same tired egg wash? So freaking good. Also the honey ranchero sauce on the tamale & wood grilled shrimp in the seafood enchilada were out of this world. They wrapped it up with genuinely exceptional service and a great owner check-in. Go. NOW."
Dined on 3/1/2014
Although billed as Santa
Fe/Northern New Mexican fare, my wife and I found little that resembled that cuisine we know and love. It takes more than Hatch green chiles to define New Mexican cuisine. We found the food to be OK, but definitely not Northern New Mexican in character."
Dined on 2/28/2014
They have the best Ancho salmon
salad. I put it on the Chip Chop Salad. It is delicious. Always have a great meal when we are there."
Dined on 2/22/2014
This was our third time there.
It's been great each time. Service and food. Very consistent. I have ordered something different each time and every dish has been outstanding."
Dined on 2/22/2014
Always excellent. Try the
meatloaf! Yes, meatloaf at a Southwestern restaurant. Service is great. Menu is quite varied and there is something for everyone."
Dined on 2/22/2014
What a yummy place, the food was
outstanding. To start the salsa was not your typical jarred salsa, definitely homemade! We went out to have the stacked enchiladas and the special combo plate which had a tamale, shrimp enchilada and stuffed poblano pepper. The only item we did not love too much was he apple sopapilla , the sopapilla was tasteless and way too much honey was drizzled on. Service was very attentive and outdoors is probably the best place to sit."
Dined on 2/19/2014
This is a great restaurant. I had
the salmon taco and the crab cake taco. Both were very good. The beans were also tasty. Love their iced tea, too."
Dined on 2/18/2014
Found this restaurant on open
table and the menu sounded interesting. Made reservations for Valentine's dinner. When we arrived we were told there was a special limited menu for that night and we weren't able to order off the regular menu. No mention of this when I made the reservation. Special menu included 4 courses with 4 entree choices. I would have preferred just an entree and a choice off the menu."
Dined on 2/14/2014
I would go back just because of
the service. Everyone was really nice and the food was really good."
Dined on 2/15/2014
It's unique and fairly original,
relative to the many other Scottsdale restaurants. A two person band was playing and they were very good. The noise level was a bit high but reasonable. My wife's dish was much spicier than advertised but the staff jumped at the opportunity to fix it. Our waiter was excellent. It's a great place for younger couples and families. Don't go looking for a romantic ambiance."
Dined on 2/15/2014
Service here is always outstanding
and the food is excellent although in this instance I think I ordered the wrong thing for my taste. All others at the table were estatic"
Dined on 2/8/2014
My wife likes this restaurant and
I have enjoyed their pork tenderloin. We took friends there and were a bit embarrassed by the fact that a medium rare steak came extremely rare and, for the person involved, inedible. They took it back and cook but it throughout the entire evening it took a long time to find someone who is willing to something about the problem."
Dined on 2/8/2014
The chilies are from Hatch NM and
taste great! Enchiladas had pieces of fresh chicken, not processed."
Dined on 2/7/2014
We really enjoy the southwestern
menu here. Although you can find tacos or enchiladas on the menu, there are so many other great entrees to try. Be a little adventurous and try something different. The Cruz Kitchen Signature is fantastic and let's you try several great items. But be ready for a lot of food (great for breakfast the next day)."
Dined on 1/31/2014
loved the food at Blue Adobe, been
many times, and always reliable, was seated in a small table... felt crowded."
Dined on 1/25/2014
Will return when in
Scottsdale. Creme brûlée delicious but portion small compared to other restaurants. Salsa is unusual as it is mostly chipotles. Very tasty with a minor hot kick."
Dined on 1/18/2014
If you care about
presentation..dont go there...plate looked like SOS. Food was ok..service great. Not a big bargain so wont rush back."
Dined on 1/19/2014
We have dined here many times and
are never disappointed!"
Dined on 1/11/2014
Our server was excellent. She went
out of her way to communicate with each person in our party about the menu and their unique needs due to food allergies. Server was timely, friendly, and excellent!"
Dined on 1/7/2014
We are always excited to eat here.
We're big fans of southwestern food, and we've never found any place as good as this in all of our travels. But it may not appeal to everybody - don't expect to get your typical Tex-Mex food here. And they keep making little changes to the decor, etc. to improve the ambience. The latest change is a divider "wall" between the rows of tables to buffer the sound and to add a bit more style to the place. It's definitely a good idea to have an Open Table reservation on the weekend because it can be rather crowded (for a good reason)."
Dined on 1/4/2014
We all enjoyed the steak dinner
specials...each was cooked perfectly and oh so tender...the special included a soup or salad PLUS a great dessert. 'T was a great evening... This neighborhood gem has become one of our favorites for lunch as well. Keep up the great cuisine! (some selections can be a bit spicy so beware ... ask your waiter)"
Dined on 1/4/2014
A refreshing change to the local
restaurant and bar scene. If you want burgers, one of the best in Scottsdale. But I prefer the New Mexican Cuisine, red and green sauces and the best salsa around. Best of all is the service and the pleasant banter with the owner, Mike. Be sure to make a reservation on Friday and Saturday."
Dined on 12/21/2013
Very bland uniteresting food,
except for the shrimp which was way too salty."
Dined on 12/6/2013
Food is always consistent and
flavorful. The wait staff remains the best example of teamwork ever observed ...they are polite and help each other out to make sure the diner is being taken care of and has a good dining experience...very rare accomplishment to maintain long term... The recruiter, the staff and their trainers should be commended."
Dined on 11/30/2013
We choose Blue Adobe Grill to meet
friends at because of the rave reviews on yelp and other sites. I was disappointed right when I walked in. It was like a remodeled Denny's, booths and all. From the web site I was expecting a cozy, unique atmosphere. They brought chips and salsa right away. The chips were like cardboard, definitely not homemade, but the salsa was quite good. I had the chile relleno. It was very good. My brother had meat loaf. it was awful. He didn't even finish it. To summarize, if you want atmosphere, this isn't the place. If you want, just pretty good mexican food, give it a try."
Dined on 11/20/2013
We went to Blue Adobe for my mom's
birthday. The food was outstanding! The night we went there was a live band which made it difficult to have a conversation at our table, but the atmosphere was fun. Our waitress was great! I definitely recommend this place for the food."
Dined on 11/15/2013
We used Open Table for a Mexican
Rest we had not been to, very surprised excellent food great service"
Dined on 11/11/2013
Although the location is not
optimum (it is located in a strip mall) Blue Adobe delivers a solid dining experience. I met my mom here for lunch when I was in town based on reviews I've read. We were seated in the outdoor patio which faced the parking lot, but there were som many trees that you hardly knew it. I love Southwest, Mexican and pretty anything spicy. I ordered the three item specialty plate, with a chile relleno, tamale and slow simmered pork in a chile sauce. All three were amazing! My mom ordered the salmon tacos and really enjoyed them, she's a hard one to please. I'd return for dinner and try out some of the other dishes coupled with their specialty margaritas."
Dined on 11/6/2013
It was our first experience at
Blue Agave. We invited some friends to join us and they to very pleased with their lunch. The entrees were plentiful but very good. The wait staff was pleasant and efficient. Our overall experience was great. We live in Sun City West and heard about your good food and we were disappointed."
Dined on 11/1/2013
Passed this place many times &
never stopped. Every pleasant surprise for lunch this weekend."
Dined on 11/3/2013
This was our first time at Blue
Adobe Grille, and we really enjoyed the food. The receptionist and waiter were excellent in accommodating our party of six outdoors -- a popular location on this Saturday night. The only down side was the noise level from the live entertainment -- a talented singer, but the volume was much too loud inside and still a bit loud outside. We plan to go back to Blue Adobe Grille on a night when there isn't live entertainment."
Dined on 11/3/2013
Excellent menu & tasty as well.
Enjoyed the experience!"
Dined on 10/12/2013
We held my wife's birthday dinner
with 6 guests at Blue Adobe. They couldn't have been more accommodating reserving the big table in the corner for our celebration. The Seafood Enchilada was outstanding and the Margaritas were yummy. The owner signing happy birthday to my bride and the free birthday desert topped off a great evening. Thanks Blue Adobe"

Made reservations online for
dinner before the play in Fountain Hills. Easy rendezvous point from Scottsdale and North Phoenix. Greeted warmly at the door and chose to sit outside. Great weather! Nice work by Jason as our server. Did mention needing to leave in a timely fashion, which presented no problems. Asked for an extra plate to share between us-- no problem. Eventually, live musician inside was playing/singing and amplified out to the patio area. Michael stopped over to inquire about our experience. He was personable and "rolled with the punches" as we chatted and enjoyed the evening. All in all, an evening experience worth repeating. Especially for a laid-back prelude to other evening plans. Wine & sup worth the $30 each."
