Food and service were great as always but much too loud for us to really have a relaxing meal or even a pleasant conversation. We really like the food but find it’s best to go early on a week night or for lunch when it is quieter.

We love Blue Adobe. It’s our favorite go to Mexican restaurant. Last time we had the chili rellanos stuffed with Chorizo and steak. Great flavor and fresh chilies. Delicious. I’ve tried a lot of stuff on the menu and it’s all great.

As many times as we've been to BAG, we're still finding great dishes on their huge menu. This time it was the Portabella Mushroom Enchilada doused with Amaretto Mushroom Cream Sauce. It would be nice to have more vegetarian offerings like that one. Service, as usual, was excellent. On the downside, once the live music in the bar cranks up it's difficult to have a conversation even on the other side of the room. Bottom line, though, is that we're willing to drive from central PHX to N. Scottsdale to eat here, and we'll continue to do so.

The staff went all out for our special occasion. We arrived to a wonderfully decorated table with party decorations. The food was top tier. Our favorites were the chicken corn chowder, chorizo stuffed chicken, and lobster Mac and cheese. Servers were awesome. We'll be back next time we're in town.

Six people ordered six different meals + drinks...the margaritas are so-o-o-o good...the beers hit the spots! Our server was quite good and helpful with any questions we had. Our guests were from the Chicago area... and enjoyed being away from the c-o-l-d for a week. They LOVE Blue Adobe... and even went there a second night for dinner when we were pre-scheduled for a different dinner. We refill our Blue Adobe Salsa Jar whenever they come... as well as in-between...Blue Adobe Salsa is to die for! Blue Adobe is a MUST-GO place for us and for several of our out-of-town guest groups! Thanks, Michael and staff!

Very busy and deservedly so. The food and service are consistently good. My meal included tenderloin that was initially undercooked. They were all over it and the manager gave us a small gift certificate. A really nice gesture. One of my local favorites.

With their expanded menu, it's difficult to decide what to eat. It's all so good! And the service is always prompt and friendly. It gets really busy during March, so it's great that you can make a reservation on Open Table.

Four of us went for a late dinner (8:15PM). Indoors, there was live music playing and it was far too loud to stay inside, so we sat on the patio, which has a poor view of a suburban strip mall. The waitress was cheery and friendly, but would disappear for long periods of time when we needed her. The shared starter (lobster queso) was quick and tasty. When we ordered our mains, two of us asked for slight alterations, which were agreed to. When they arrived, the steak which was supposed to have the mushroom sauce served on the side, was in fact smothered with mushroom sauce. The stuffed chicken was requested without the stuffing was served complete with cheese and pepper stuffing. Everyone said their mains were good, but in my own case, the aforementioned chicken was quite tough. When we were ready to pay and leave, we waited and waited for the waitress, eventually we had to walk inside searching for someone to bring us the bill. I won't be in any hurry to return here.

One of our favorite places in Scottsdale. My husband always gets the “Last night’s meatloaf” and another in our party also had it and enjoyed it. I had the seafood kabobs for the first time and they were delicious. Sat on the patio and even though it’s in the middle of a strip mall parking lot, feels nice due to the lighting.

We came for “margarita Monday” and weee delighted with the chips and salsa to start as well as our margaritas. My husband and I shared the scrumptious lobster queso and 47 Plate combo. Both amazing. Our server Ali was also very attentive and most polite and professional.

Was really looking forward to dining at this restaurant due to the many positive reviews. However was very disappointed in our experience. Food was just so-so , service very poor and margaritas were weak and lacking flavor. The outdoor setting is quite pretty and it seems that perhaps we just went there on an off night.

Corn chowder was good but not very warm. Blue corn seafood enchilada was not at all warm and tortillas were unusually chewy. Flavor was not good inspite of good fish and shrimp pieces. Double barrel cheese enchiladas were excellent and hot temperature-wise. Chocolate chip cookie pie with vanilla ice cream was rich and tasty. Malbec was excellent and served at proper temperature. Server was friendly and knowledgeable but table cleaning between courses was awful.

My cousin was visiting from out of town, she requested Prickly Pear Margaritas. Blue Adobe Grille was the perfect spot for us. She loved the margaritas and the food. The service was good, a little slow on the second the margarita but otherwise excellent. The live music made it a bit too loud for conversation, but the music was really good. Nice place for dinner, I would recommend it.

This place is off the hook when it comes to the flavor of the food! If we lived in the area it would be a regular place for us, and we are snobs when it comes to our Mexican food. The service was amazing and they were quick on delivering our food, even a party of 7. I’d highly recommend it and when we are back in AZ it will be on our list. Oh, and someone mentioned the decor was from the 90’s, not so and it was definitely nicely done.
