We were seated quickly inside and then we decided we’d rather be outside... so... they moved us to a nice table outside. Our server was really great...quite personable and efficient. Our food was EXCELLENT!

Mother’s Day, it was our first time and the food was very good. Being from NM, I was pleased to see blue corn tortillas used for my enchiladas. My only wish would be to see green chile used more liberally. Our waiter was pleasant and attentive while the ambience was relaxed. We will be back.

This was our first visit to the restaurant. We enjoyed the Santa Fe style options. Everything we ordered was delicious. The crab cakes were tasty, and even the chicken tacos were outstanding! My husband ordered the seafood kabobs and he thought it was spiced perfectly, and was cooked just like he expected.

The waiter was very attentive and made the experience a good one for us. We’ll be back!

We wanted a great brunch for Mother’s Day, so we chose to eat here. The food was delicious (as it always is), and we got free mimosas and desserts for the occasion. I’ve tried many different items on the menu, and they’re all fantastic. Very unique southwestern menu!

The Jimmy Crack Corn Crab Cakes on the appetizer menu are fantastic - the best ever! I think they should make it available as an entree as well, maybe with a side of asparagus and something else (but probably not rice and beans). Otherwise, everything else on the menu is also very good. In fact, you probably don't think of coming here for a steak, but they are very good as well. They're prepared several different ways with interesting sides. I can't say enough good things about this place! It's our all time favorite!

Food was great as was the service. Had the Lobster Queso (WOW!!!) and the Filet medallions with blue crab--fork tender and really delicious. Have been several time and consistently great food and atmosphere. Love the music on Saturday evenings. Lunch is just as good.

We met some friends there for the first experience at this restaurant. We read the menu online and our friends from Las Cruces New Mexico, said " this is the place we should meet." 6 of us were there, 5 from New Mexico originally, now living in Scottsdale and Cedar City Utah, and 2 from Las Cruces. Excellent menu. EXCELLENT. We were there on a Friday evening and the place was packed. The staff set us very quickly and it was fun. The band was very enjoyable. My staked Christmas style enchiladas were absolutely the best ever. They would stand up to any enchiladas from Santa Fe. Waiter was fun and nice to us. we all agreed that the food there was GREAT. Thank you so much for providing such excellent green and red chili dishes. Garland

Second time at the Blue Adobe. Great food and service. We both had the seafood combo with a lobster tamale, crab cake taco and shrimp chili relleno. Served with rice and bean, the portion was huge. ... and delicious. The raspberry sauce with the lobster tamale was so good!!!! The chips and salsa were amazing too. Only wish this place was in my neighborhood.

The decor takes the diner to old Mexico, or at least New Mexico with the Santa Fe decor. However, the Excessive use of spices compete and overwhelm the palette.

We were looking for a Mexican Restaurant so we decided to try Blue Adobe Grill after reading favourable reviews. We were NOT disappointed, dinner was great! Make sure you try The Margarita ‘s ... Our waitress was absolutely fantastic, she knew the menu inside & out. A local musician was also there to add to the fun.

Innovative menu, great flavors, excellent service. Chicken, beef and pork dishes were all succulent and each had their own unique wonderful flavor. Nice selection of Margaritas. As first time diners we appreciated the manager stopping by our table. Will definitely return. Opt for the patio.

This is the 3rd or 4th time I've been to Blue Adobe and plan to go back again. Drinks are inventive and well made. The seafood-based dishes are fantastic and the New Mexican cuisine is not to be confused with Sonoran. Very different but delicious taste profile. Highly recommend

I don’t know why I waited so long between visits to this place. Every meal there is always exceptional in every way and this time did not disappoint. I had the filet with jalapeño hollandaise and pasta that melted in my mouth. My friend had the chorizo chicken and wouldn’t share! Service by Daniel was attentive but not rushed -perfect. Great wine choices, too. I truly love this place and understand how it’s been so popular year after year.

We would have liked the option to book a patio table through Open Table. We got there a bit early and ended up waiting for almost an hour at the bar (not necessarily a bad thing) for patio seating. The meal was great - servers were very attentive. Would go back but would call in the reservation next time.

Food was great, ambiance so-so. The tenderloin relleno was very good, but the beans and rice were boring. Like their red sauce better than the watery green, but the best was the salsa that came with the chips...thick and yummy.

This is one of our favorite places to visit when we are in town on vacation. Food is excellent! Last night’s favorites were the bean dip and crab cake tacos. Great value on the tacos because it was Taco Tuesday as well. Great service and atmosphere too.

The food is very flavorful without being overly spicy. In addition to the yummy homemade salsa that comes with the free tortilla chips, they provide sides of red sauce and green sauce for the table to use as condiments as desired to your taste. Everything was freshly prepared and portions we're generous.

Staff was friendly and helpful with recommendations, although it was busy so the service wasn’t as attentive as it could have been. Food was excellent, and the servings were large. Can’t beat the Taco Tuesday special for $7.50 - great value! They also have an awesome margarita flight with 3 different types. Reservations were easy on opentable, even made a last minute change with no problem. Great place for Tex Mex!
