We loved Blue Adobe when Michael owned and operated it. We were hoping the new owners would maintain the same high food standards. The special nachos plate was good, but much smaller than before. We had two orders of shrimp tacos and one order of shredded beef tacos. All three of us agreed that the tacos lacked flavor and were dry. We may not return.
Downhill since the new owners took over. Just look at the reviews.
Disappointed that the food was not true “new mexican” style. Chicken inside enchiladas was small chopped bits and a little tough.
Great service. Tamale was a little dry, chile rellenos was excellent.
Our server Nick was friendly and efficient. Blue Adobe has long been a favorite of ours, but the food was not good this time. The tortillas were chewy, and the enchilada filling had no seasoning and only a dollop of salsa verde. I don’t think we will be returning to Blue Adobe.
Loved this place years ago… but made reservations while we were in Scottsdale this time around and got horrible service and mediocre food. It was hard to get drinks, even water and took over an hour before we were even asked if we were ready to order. Luckily there was live music and we were in a casual mood, so it wasn’t that big of a deal… but I would have dragged my husband to my “old favorite spot” clear across town from where we were staying had I known.
Disappointed. In almost empty restaurant, took 90 minutes to get food from time of ordering. Received wrong food from what was ordered. Drink size have been reduced significantly.
Unfortunately, the restaurant is under new ownership (as told by waiter who could only apologize for all mishaps), and it is obvious new owners are Not paying attention to what made this restaurant great before. We used to eat in or order takeout from Blue Abode 2-3 times a month for the last 5 years.
Will probably give it one more try in a few weeks to see if things improve, if not, will have to find new spot for good southwestern food.
Disappointing. New owners are changing it all up. A good, local gem is no longer at Blue Adobe aka “The Adobe Grille”?! Changing the menu, restaurant name, servers, quality of food. You can tell they are pinching the pennies on food. Smaller serving sizes. Mediocre at best.
Sad. We use to come here once a week but sadly it’s not worth it anymore :(
Owners have an Italian spot next door that’s just as mediocre.
Under new ownership, many things changed for the worse. Salsa completely different as was green sauce and vegetable enchiladas mostly just filled with zucchini and smaller portions. This was our 1-2x a week hang out. Likely not going back unless they can bring the old goodness back.
Apparently, the chef/owner sold the business 3 weeks ago. The new owner has some improving to do:
- Good margaritas
- Great staff - very friendly and willing to listen to issues
- Lukewarm food - entrees and sides were just warm
- Many of the red and blue tortillas ships tasted rancid
- The green and red chile sauces had very little flavor. They were lacking the robust flavors found with these sauces.
Hopefully, these issues will be corrected.
Ordered the filet medallion and peach sangria. All I can say is, YUM! So delicious and the temp was just right for the patio!
I will go back for certain...kinda says it all!
My son and I enjoyed a very nice dinner on the patio. It was peaceful, food was very good, and service was excellent.
Good food and service. Very extensive menu with lots of choices.
First visit in 2 years. While the food was still good, it was not as good as it was before the pandemic. Salsa lacked the pecan wood smoked flavor it once had, perhaps it was the batch or the recipe was changed? One person in our party thought the chicken in the stacked enchiladas was chewy. We’ll wait awhile before giving it another chance.
Love the meatloaf entree and their outdoor area is simply lovely. Please bring back pork tenderloin on the menu. New owners are lovely people.
Our server Allie was a breath of fresh air - she was wonderful!
This was a great find! The food was fabulous. Great service. We will definitely be back again
Blue Adpbe Grille never disappoints. Great food and service and live music on the weekends.
As always Blue Adobe delivers on both very tasty quality food and constantly excellent service. One of our favorite restaurants!
Excellent New Mexico cuisine. The service was attentive and flavors were fantastic. I only wish this restaurant were closer to my home.
First time -- excellent experience. Will definitely be back!
Loved everything we ordered! We will be back!
Awesome authentic Southwestern food - great service and great food!!
Service was pleasant, food was hot and delicious, and we look forward to going back.
Everything about this dinner was perfect. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable. My husband enjoyed the special of the evening, the tostadas. My ancho salmon was perfect.
Food excellent as usual. Our server was Bella! Friendly, knowledgeable and thoughtful! Terrific!
Always a great evening. We left just before the band came on. Next time we will go later!
Quality of food was significantly lower than previous visits to this location. Below average compared to other similar restaurants.
This was our first time to Blue Adobe Grill. We were pleased with the menu selections - a wide variety to choose from. We especially liked the unique spin on certain items, like the shrimp stuffed chili relleno with mango salsa. The food was fresh, cooked perfectly, and very tasty. Our server was attentive. The only thing I could complain about (down to a 3 star rating) was the pricing. Our meals were $18 and $21, which I consider a bit high for lunch. Overall, it was a very good experience, and I would return again.
We just love the creative dishes here but a special shout out goes to the beef stuffed chili rellenos. Always fantastic and the pork adovada shouldn’t be missed.
Great place with great food & friendly staff!!!! We will definitely be going back again!!!
Service was very good. Food was good. But the margaritas were poor. I got the house margarita on the rocks. Guess I should have known better when it’s called the Killer. First sip was like flavored water. Used the straw to get to the bottom and it was room temperature. Waitress said they don’t chill the mix and as for the lack of flavor, she informed me I got the house margarita.
My wife got an upgraded margarita, but had the same results. Warm on the bottom. It did have a better taste but still weak. We didn’t order anymore drinks after that.
As always, delicious food and impeccable service. One of our favorite places to eat in the valley.
GREAT margaritas. Food and service excellent as well
My family and I have never had a bad experience here. Food and service was exceptional, as always.
We've been patrons of Blue Adobe for years. The food is consistently great and the chips and salsa are the best we have had. Recommend a reservation, especially on the weekends.
Great food and great service as always!
Friendly, great service, large portions. A bit loud and a bit loose on servers wearing masks.
Good little restaurant. Went there for the outdoor dinning and live music but live music is inside. Door was good except for the brisket which was supper dry. Drinks were tasty and service was good.
The food was good, big portions. We were surprised they had a band playing on Friday night which was a nice addition.
