Best Mexican food in MD!
This was the best Mexican food we'd had, hands down. Everything was fantastic, portions were great, and service was impeccable. They happily accommodated our spirited toddler, and offered lots of suggestions (including their drink of the month! Get it!) Don't miss the PEI Mussels app, or the pork torta, or their fresh calamari, or the bread pudding, or the chips....or anything ;) If we ever are in MD again, this is our first stop!

The service was excellent!
The service was excellent! The food was fantastic except for the rice. I'm Mexican so I expect a certain level of greatness there. I loved the guacamole although they do not make it in front of us. The pico de gallo was fantastic and the house margaritas were on spot. Great spot for a dates and a hang with friends! They will not disappoint.

Great guacamole and fajitas.
Great guacamole and fajitas. Margaritas are also always made well. The place to go for mexican in Federal Hill.

The food was really good.
The food was really good. I love avocados so an avocado taco was right up my alley. I hated my to-go box was knocked on the floor by a hurrying waitress who just merely said "sorry" and kept on going. The people she was seating were kind enough to pick it up as she kept walking. All in all I would eat there again.

I love this place, the kitchen is open late and the food is amazing!

The food was incredible, I
The food was incredible, I don't think it was possible to choose a bad item off the menu. The margaritas were also amazing. We were seated by the window, which made us very cold for our dinner meal and they were too packed to move us. Had we dressed a little warmer I would have no complaints at all.

Arriving on a Tuesday night before a ballgame, pleasantly surprised to find both a margarita and burrito special. Carne Asada burrito was excellent, perfect portion size, and not stuffed with arbitrary fillers. I opted for the Prickly Pear margarita, but the house and spicy margaritas on special are excellent choices. Tri-colored chips were fresh, and not greasy,but the three different salsas lacked some punch.

This place has excellent mexican
This place has excellent mexican food that is WAY better then anything you will find in town. If you are into tequlla, this place cannot be matched as they carry their own menu of the upscale variety of the liquor. I'd reccomend reservations too as the place usually gets packed for later dinner hours.

favorite HH in Federal Hill
HH is great there. good drink specials on house margaritas, sangrias and Mexican beers. their tacos are great (pulled chicken, pork, steak, grilled fish, bean and avocado) come out fast and are only $1.75. $4 chips and guac, and if you're drinking their house made chips with 3 salsas get it done too. full menu is my favorite Mexican in the city. not just a taco counter/cantina. Lots of options for the non taco/burrito/enchilada lovers. nice outdoort seating, and you can sit there for HH on MON-TH. love all the wrestling masks on the wall and there is always wrestling on. That + tequila make it a fun time.

We enjoyed a dinner of enchiladas with classic margaritas at Blue Agave. One entree was with mole poblano and the second featured salsas verdes. We were seated in the very back of the restaurant on a warm night, and this was uncomfortable - so try to avoid this seating area. Service was quick and friendly.

This was for a birthday celebration . There were six of us.
The food choices were plenty to please everyone.
The service was friendly, and perfect. From being
seated to allowing us to bring our own birthday cake in.
They even served the cake by bringing it to the table
with the candles lit. They kept the cake in the walk in
until we needed it. The food was delicious. We had
three different appetizers and 6 different entrees
all wonderful. We will definately be going back
again very soon.

Love sitting at the bar
The bar scene is one of my favorite in Federal Hill. They always take great care of you, and I return the favor by drinking as many spicy margaritas as possible.

Tad, the Waiter, is Tops!
Blue Agave, on Light Street, in Baltimore's Federal Hill neighborhood. What a gem!
Our waiter , Tad was a highlight of the evening! He was attentive, witty, and had fabulous recommendations! We had barely sat down when he brought us fresh chips and homemade salsas. The large pitcher of margaritas was the value added - The fish tacos were a hit as were the delightful shared dish of shrimp fajitas- great marinade and plentiful fixins! Tad posed for a picture with a winning smile. He directed us on how to reach our final destination- the 8x10 music venue. Tad made the evening a smashing success- we wanted to take him with us!
Go to the Blue Agave and be sure to ask for Tad!!!

Good food, good service
I used to visit Blue Agave frequently until it went under new management. Then, food and service went downhill. But now that the management has changed again, Blue Agave is right back to being a fantastic restaurant. I had the fajitas and the meat was tender and flavorful and my husband had a seafood dish which he raved about. Will definitely be back.

Great dinner, great service, and terrific atmosphere. Foodies dream come true. My teenage boys were hesitant, but said it is their favorite restaurant and we travel often.

The best experience!!
The food and service were exceptional! Molly (our server) was there when we needed her and let my girlfriend and I enjoy each others company. I am a GM of a restaurant, and I can truly say that this was the BEST experience I have had in years. A truly remarkable job done by all!! Thank you for making our night one to remember.

Best Mexican in Dowtown & Fed Hill
One of my local favorites. I recommend the Avacado Tacos to anyone! Also they give you three types of salsa with your chips. Great Place. Food is great, only down side is the servers can be hit or miss.

Better than Mexico
Both the food and the Margaritas were delicious. My boyfriend tried the Prickly Pear (actually, he had two!) and I had the Mango Margarita. Yummy! For food, he ordered the burrito and I ordered the chicken fajitas with a side of guacamole. Ample portions and delicious flavor.

I love this restaurant. The food is sooooo good. Our waitress was extremely friendly and helpful. The only thing that we did not care for were the drinks. All 3 in my party ordered a frozen margarita (3 different kinds). They were horrible. We will be back but will not order any drinks in the future.

Nothing Fancy...But Great Food
The food was amazing. I had the mexican cream of crab (interestingly different) the chorizo and pork (the sauce was awesome) and the peach empanadas (huge portion, great flavor) for restaurant week. It's a little more casual than I expected and the service was SLOW but overall a great experience.

Not what I remember
I haven't been here in quite a while and there are new owners. The food was great, drinks were good and service was friendly. Somehow though I felt like I was in a sports bar instead of a nice restaurant. It was very loud and too dark. I guess the crowd has just changed over the years so it wasn't what I expected. I'd still recommend the food though.

Good food, great service
Went for a friends 30th birthday with 8 people. Our table wasn't ready on time, but after ordering a round of drinks at the bar, we were able sit down. The margarita menu is top notch and the food menu had a lot to choose from.

Glad we went back!
The last time we went to the Blue Agave they'd just changed hands. It was just OK, but this time was outstanding!
The server was attentive, the food was delicious. It took quite a while for our food to arrive, but clearly it was cooked to order, fresh and worth the wait!
I will return!

Great food, hard to find parking
Atmosphere was great, food was great but finding parking on a Saturday night was difficult. Took us over 30minutes as the garage was already full.

Good food, fun atmosphere
Waiter was polite and attentive. Bottomless chips and salsa. A little pricey for burritos and tacos, but they have good specials during the week that off-set the price. Great HH specials too (that are not available in the dining room, unfortunately). Bar area is a little small, but not unbearable. Interior decor is welcoming and authentic. Great find in Federal Hill. I had the blackened fish tacos and they were tasty. Would recommend for a date, small HH gathering with friends. They do have space for a large party or two in the dining room also.
