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.

My second time visiting and
My 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.

Always a Treat
Delivers 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.

This gem is perfect for that
This 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.

This is where we usually pick
This 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.

Great margaritas and very good food. The patio was big, beautiful and shady on a sunny afternoon. Can't wait to go back.

wear a hat
15 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.

Best 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.

Raining day so sitting inside
Raining 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.

Although the food was tasty, it was impossible to get any kind of bean other than refried. Service was great and the outdoor setting was very nice.

Good Dining in Downton Pleasanton
The 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.

Mothers Day Brunch
Blue 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.

We love the Blue Agave Club. That is our second time in as many weeks. Super wait staff, and yummy food.

Great Meeting Place
We were driving from the Bay Area and meeting friends from the Central Valley. Pleasanton's Main Street is convenient, lovely and fun, and Blue Agave was terrific. Great food and great service. No wimpy chicken bits on chicken salad; large chunks of tender chicken over delicious greens with a light dressing. And raves from the other guests over their traditional Mexican dishes.
5/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Extremely friendly and helpful service from the greeting to the adios. The outdoor setting was beautiful and exciting! By the time we left, I felt like our waiter was a new friend.. The food was unique, delicious, and beautifully presented. The alert waiter discerned that we were celebrating my birthday and rounded up the cheerful family staff members to sing "Happy Birthday" to me, allowing me to don a HUGE sombrero during the song. They seemed happy to be celebrating with me. A piece of cake with candle was served to me. Other members of my group enjoyed delicious margaritas and were as pleased as I with the wonderful food. I am certain we'll be back to sample more of the delicious food and marvelous hospitality!

Great Night Out
We had awonderful send off for adera friend. Superb food. Several of us had the shrimp dish and it was outstanding. Margarit's, as always, were delicious. Excellent service with just the right amount of humor! Street fair caused a few issues parking but we enjoyed the fair as we walked back to our cars!

Great outdoor dining on the main street in downtown Pleasanton. Delicious food and margaritas - we always take visiting friends here.

Good but pricey!
Blue Agave has great ambiance and the food is pretty good (though I've had better) but it is way overpriced (in my opinion). Be prepared to spend $100 for 2 (that was with a coupon).
6/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were very hesitant to go because of many bad reviews on yelp, but I'm really glad we went! My husband had the cheese enchiladas, and asked for light sauce so it turned out great! I ordered their famous shrimp dish, and again I asked for light sauce and I thought it was delicious! We took our three kids and they loved the ambience. Unfortunately they did not like their tacos, so that was the only miss. We will definitely go back again.

This is one of my all-time favorite restaurants. From specialty margaritas to appetizers and fiery shrimp diablo, everything was perfect.

We have celebrated Father's Day there for the last 4 years (at least) and enjoyed it every time. Look forward to next year.

Great Father's Day at Blue Agave
Lovely Brunch for our favorite dad! Food was yummy and fresh. The only disappointment was the quality of the desserts...the restaurant can do better...

!I have been going to this restaurant for years and it's always wonderful. The food and drinks are the best. The service is great. They make you feel welcome like family would.

Fun Sunday lunch spot
Our party of 4 enjoyed the good food, good margaritas and the patio ambiance of this location of the Blue Agave Club. The food was good and well prepared and as expected. However not one of us chose a house specialty so cannot tell if if it is a unique dining experience. Enchilada suizas, chile rellano, cheese enchiladas were all very tasty and would order again. We plan on coming back and trying house specialties. The patio dining experience made the day.

Strongly suggest reservations as this restaurant fills quickly on weekend evenings.

Try the mole - it's amazing. This is a great restaurant for outdoor dining in the summer.
It's pricey though!

Wonderful food, with a more elegant approach to Mexican cuisine. An excellent tequila list.
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
We always enjoy the margaritas while sitting outside listening to the guitar player. On a warn summer night nothing is better. This is not your cheap cantina with poor tequila. They have premium tequila and margarita list along with delicious food.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Blue Agave Club takes Mexican food dining to the highest level. The menu selections are exoctic and delicious. All the food choices are excellent. The outdoor dining is an added element that makes the Blue Agave a romantic dinner spot. We especially enjoyed the live music in the backround.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
definitely will try again
Great outdoor dining in park like area of downtown Pleasanton. Starts off with tasty chips and a selection of three salsas. The house guacamole is fresh with a flavorful blend of spices/herbs. The pork carnitas was fork tender, flavorful and paired well with the warm corn tortillas. The suizas enchiladas were also very good as well. We had sides of jalapenos (Charlee) and the I Ai Diabla (Chile de Arbol) to complement our dishes, both were excellent additions. To make everything go down smoothly, we paired our lunch with some premium tequila margaritas. It is a little pricey for what you get, that is why I rated it only 4 vs 5 stars (compared to what I can get back home in Tucson or Phoenix for similar restaurants)

Great food, great fun
I picked this restaurant from the Open Table list to meet a friend 1/2 way between San Jose and Napa, and it was a great stroke of luck with the food, outside dining and place to have a good time. (It's actually closer to San Jose than Napa, but I would meet my friends there any time!)

Great outside venue. Flamenco Guitar playing in the background. Food was great, service was slow, not the usual.

Our new Go-To Mexican Restaurant
We haven't had much luck finding a Mexican restaurant in the East Bay that we want to frequent on a regular basis; that could be changing. This first visit to the Blue Agave Club was a welcome treat. The outdoor patio is a great place for a summer lunch. Service was very good: attentive but not disruptive. The staff kept pace with my partner's ice tea glass, filling it promptly 3 times! Portions are plentiful and flavors are interesting and delicious. My enchilada suiza was very good, but a tad salty. If the salt could be cut back it would be a real winner. My partner's burrito was also very good.
We will definitely return and work our way through more of the menu. So far, so good.

This restaurant is good on
This restaurant is good on so many levels--elegant Mexican cuisine, a beautiful patio, superb service and an excellent tequila list. They were sensitive to our food allergies. Always good to see a Mexican restaurant where the rice is vegetarian. The corn truffle sauce dominates the menu, and it is an acquired taste. It would be nice to see more items where this is not the featured sauce.

Always an enjoyable dinner party
Have been coming to Blue Agave for many years with friends - never disappoints. Fun atmosphere, unique cuisine, good service. Kid-friendly, beautiful outside patio dining, great music, lovely lighting. Can't wait to come again!

This place has always been amazing. A great tequila list, Margaritas are fabulous - and just about everything on the menu is a hit. I have been coming here for 11 years and never disappointing.

The perfect patio dining experience
This is one of the premiere restaurants to dine outside, and it's backed by wonderful food and superb service. I always bring friends here when we can make it to Pleasanton.

The food is always fabulous and the favor is authentic! Their tequila selection is over the top and amazing. I am not a Flan lover at all, but their Flan was spectacular!

Glad we came back
I'd been here several times, but it had been a few years. They haven't missed a beat. It was excellent as I remembered and I won't wait so long for the next visit. Sevice was wonderful, food was excellent. On the Sat. night we were there, a very talented guitarist provided a romantic backdrop to a wonderful evening.

I enjoyed the Salmon entrée. The chips with three varieties of salsa were not your garden-variety out of the bag chips.
Guitar player was very talented.
