Blue Agave Club
Mothers Day BrunchBlue Agave Club was a very nice setting for Mother's Day brunch. The live music and atmosphere was very tranquil. My made to order omelet was delicious, however some of the meat selections at the buffet were sub par; almost bland even. The buffet set up was kind of a free for all. People were waiting in the hallway forming a line when no line was needed because it was somewhat unclear what to do or where each buffet line started. The mimosa kept flowing and the servers took care of our drinks in a timely manner so can't complain about the service at all. Everyone was very friendly.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Dining in Downton PleasantonThe Blue Agave is one of our favorite restaurants in the Bay Area. For special occasions, we have been coming here for over 20 years for their Blue Agave steak and Camarones Xochitl. The tequila shot that comes with the steak is a very good touch. We also enjoy their margaritas. We like the place so much that we don't mind driving 45 minutes to dine here.
However, my steak was cooked medium instead of medium-rare in the last couple of times that we came. No big problem because it was replaced by another that's cooked to my satisfaction. I just drank more margaritas while waiting.
We will keep coming back to this restaurant because the food is one of the best. We hope the service continues to improve.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGrowing up in Texas I haveGrowing up in Texas I have to adjust my mindset on some of the dishes. That being said I very much enjoy the west coast influence to most of the dishes. My only recommendation is to increase the spice level as several of the dishes have no 'kick'.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMRaining day so sitting insideRaining day so sitting inside was kind of a bust. Been to lunch here many times before, which is great w/ reasonable pricing. The Dinner menu was a bit limited compared to the lunch menu, which is a bit more kid friendly. The food was excellant with interseting flavors. The price of the dinner (Including 2 margarita pitchers for 8 people) was extremely high for Pleasanton.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Mole Sauce!!Every time I come, I always order the same thing, the Plato Huitzilapoxtli. I want to try something else, but just can't bring myself to switch it up since this plate is soooo good. Plus, I finally learned how to pronounce it, so why change now, right?! I brought some co-workers for Cinco de Mayo and they all loved it too. I come here every time I am in town. It's a great place to sit outside with a group and enjoy some margaritas (also the best in town). Definitely my favorite place in Downtown Pleasanton.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMwear a hat15 of us and the service was great, they even gave separate tickets. Outside seating is perfect except they would not move an umbrella to shade a guest and there were tons of umbrellas and even hard to believe that any sun could make it to a guest. Everything else was perfect and If I had worn a hat the sun would not have been a problem.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat margaritas and veryGreat margaritas and very good food. The patio was big, beautiful and shady on a sunny afternoon. Can't wait to go back.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThis gem is perfect for thatThis gem is perfect for that quiet lunch when you want to choose from a huge variety of great Mexican items, sitting outside and enjoying their garden. Even better is dinner where the focus is on Yucatan Mexican cuisine. Try their great mole - unless you are a serious home chef, you won't do this at home. Or the enjococado - we've been trying to recreate this one at home for years. Wonderful food. And a chance to see that yes, the tequila does make a difference in your margarita. Choose from a large number of margaritas made with a variety of top shelf reposadas and anejos. (well, also silver, but I don't care for those as much). Make sure you sit outside - it is the perfect outside venue. They have heaters for cooler nights.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is where we usually pickThis is where we usually pick when we want to have a specail evening with outdoor evening. The people who work there are all very friendly with smiles and happy to make any reasonable accomidations. We love that they have heaters so that when it starts to get chilly they are more than happy to roll one over to accomidate the weather. The drinks are delish and generous, and the Tequilla is such good qualitiy that I have never felt bad afterwards for having a little to much. Love the LIve Music.....would like to hear a little bit more Spanish music but I am not complaining.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a TreatDelivers great food and service every time. My wife and I have been coming here a few times a year for over 10 years. Not your typical Mexican restaurant. Blue Agave has 10-15 specialty dishes that they continue to do very well.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMy second time visiting andMy second time visiting and I don't think I'll come to Pleasanton again without coming to Blue Agave. The best mole sauce I think I've ever had. I can never decide what to get so I end up with the plato huitzilopoxtli so I get a bit of everything. Although my friends really liked their cuitlacoche sauce, so maybe next time I will try something new.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always they were amazing.As always they were amazing. The food is exceptional and the wait staff was friendly and very helpful. Everyone appears to enjoy working there. I look forward to eating here every chance I get.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
