Food is always amazing!! Didn't realize on Tuesdays that they have a love DJ but the music was a little loud had to shot across the table. Margaritas and the company is always a good time highly recommend!

Great menu variety. Nice wine selection. Even busy it did to seem crowded as the tables had room between each. Our server was very knowledgeable on how the food was prepared. I would recommend a reservation on a weekend, seems to be a popular destination.

The food was great. The calimari was superb and my burrito was tasty. It is also very reasonably priced for the location north of old town Scottsdale. It was also very convenient reserving our table the night before. It was a bit noisy for however.

I think we just came at a bad time because the service was so slow. Our server got two of five orders wrong. Plus we asked for two things that were either never delivered (salsa) or delivered after meal was finished (enchilada sauce to try to correct one of the wrong orders). We loved the open air table and the cool vibe of this restaurant and all thought the food was excellent, but the really bad service sort of tarnished our experience.

We had made a reservation for 8:15pm- We showed up at 6:30pm expecting to wait. We checked in with the 3 Hostesses and explained we were early but ready to be seated as soon as possible. We sat in the lobby , the reservation was for 2 people, both present. The Hostess that checked us in told us it would still be a 30-40 min wait. We sat there for 1 hr and 15 mins with nobody in the lobby but us. We finally asked the hostess again after our expected wait for her to tell us she was waiting til 8:15 to seat us. Idiots!!!

My family and I come to blanco a bunch, but recently every time we go something changes for the worse, we get the same thing every time so we are pretty aware when it changes. It started with the portions, we used to be able to share the fajita, then they downed the portions, then it was the marinade... it was SO spicy... but I honestly think that whoever was on that day just added too much spice. And then tonight we went and it wasn’t as spicy and the portion size was way small!! I think the server said now they use a different meat as well. The street corn that I love, tasted liked a straight lemon/lime. Also, all their old margaritas are gone. Their happy hour is not as Great as it used to be, they have ONE margarita in happy hour.. my aunt ordered one with no salt.. came with salt which is annoying because it was after happy hour , so we paid like 10 bucks for it, which is not the worst but get it right.. Service was normal, nothing special. Definitely will be finding another modern Mexican place to take the family.

Blanco used to be our favorite Mexican restaurant! My daughter chose it to celebrate her 22nd birthday this past week. We were highly disappointed. It was so loud we were unable to even have a conversation, temperature of the room was very cold and uncomfortable, the price of the food had gone up with the new menu but the food was less than desirable. It had lost thatnsoecial flare! Also our favorite items on the menu had been removed. The margaritas were expensive for being so watered down. Honestly I have had many $5 margaritas in Scottsdale that were much tastier and the same size so were a better value. We do not plan on returning to Blanco in the future.
