Had reservations and we were seated 10 minutes late. Someone with a reservation with a party of 3 was sat before us. We were a party of 4.

This was a great Valentine’s Day dinner. We had never been before and would certainly return. They had an exclusive 4 course dinner set up just for Valentine’s Day. The food was very good and it was a unique and fun experience. Thanks for putting on a special night!

We made a reservation for 2 and were seated right away. They have outdoor and indoor seating, with the bar separating the two areas. They also have live music on Friday and Saturday nights, which was nice to listen to. Our waiter was attentive and very friendly. Their selection of food and drinks is very large! I had a hard time choosing what I wanted, but ended up ordering the Ancho Salmon and the carne tacos. Chips and salsa are complimentary. The chips were warm and the salsa had good flavor and could tell it was homemade. Our food and drinks came out in a very timely manner. The salmon was cooked well and the salsa on top had a little kick. The vegetables and Chile potatoes were very good as well. Tacos had enough filling to be very full. The manager came around and asked about the service, which was very nice to see. Our waitress was attentive and friendly throughout. I do find it odd they don’t have a separate dessert menu as most sit down restaurants do. The waitress just listed them to us. We didn’t end up getting any dessert, but they sounded delicious. I would go back again and try something new!

Delicious meal. Totally fresh, homemade salsa and extensive menu that is more authentic Four Corners, border cuisine than the typical Americanized “Mexican” fare. Adovado was absolutely fantastic, very flavorful. The Blue Plates are hard to choose between, though much milder and sweeter than one might expect. Definitely plan to make this a go to spot

I picked the place because of the menu and the food did not disappoint. We had to ask for refills on our drinks, AND you get charged for every well club soda you drink. Considering the price of food I thought that was outrageous. Overall I would recommend the place. The food was great.

Great menu - very creative New Mexican food with lots of interesting options for appetizers and entrees. The prickly pear margarita is the best I’ve ever had. From the outside the restaurant appears to be a non descript place in a strip mall kind of location but the food is exceptional. Some of the best we had while visiting Scottsdale. Be sure to make a reservation online. The place was packed on a Wednesday night. Highly recommended!

Greeted nicely. Shown to a table near the bar and a noisy crowd. Overhead lights are too bright and unflattering. Waitress lacking in skills. Did the bare minimum. Brought the wrong drinks and offered no suggestions or additional info. The food is yummy but the service was so basic it colored the whole experience.

Amazing food, beautiful ambiance and wonderful staff. The "Four Corners" Bean Dip was mouth-watering and the Lobster Tamale was outstanding with fresh lobster. And the staff was superb!! Highly recommend.

We’re from Canada. Second time there in the last few months. Once with our adult children and recently with friends. Sat outside. Food was delicious! Our server was lovely (can’t recall her name but a young gal) Tried the margarita flight and enjoyed that very much! Tasty! Overall a great experience close to our condo!

While the food was acceptable there are better options in Scottsdale. What was totally unacceptable we’re the actions of the waitress at the end of the evening. We were a party of thirteen at two different tables so a decent night for wait staff that were properly trained. One table had drinks taken before finished. When called on this the waiter wisecracked about “enjoying the watered down part of the drink”.

Our waitress dropped one salsa dish into another splashing salsa all over the shirt of one member of our party. When I requested that his meal be comped we were told by the “manager” that the incident did not merit this request. Totally unacceptable.

We will never return and will provide additional reviews on other sites as well as disputing our charges for the affected parties. Terrible customer service. If you are here for the golf event avoid this establishment like the plague.

This is an update to my review above. I was pleasantly surprised to hear from the BlueAdobe’s owner. He was extremely apologetic and informed me that the situation had been addressed. This was a very kind gesture and will likely result in our return.

Every trip to Scottsdale would be incomplete without a good meal at Blue Adobe! We love Mexican, Southwest food. This is a casual atmosphere, with a fun vibe. Good for groups of friends, families or couples.
