Great food, margaritas and atmosphere. Live music enticed us to sit in the bar another hour to listen to old soft rock hits.

Twice in a weeks vacation was not enough, found an excuse for a third visit before leaving.
Great food should be enough to visit but its an amazing value as well.

Great Southwestern food with great ambiance. The salsa that’s placed on the table prior to ordering is likely the best I’ve ever had.

This was our second visit to Blue Adobe. We were even more impressed the second time around. We knew we were in for a treat, but we didn’t expect to be blown away by the tenderloin preparation. Outstanding!

It's hard to find a better deal than Taco Tuesday but I chose the meatloaf (made the day before and "aged") and was not disappointed. It's delicious and the perfect choice on a chilly night.

Great as always! The food is the best southwestern food we've found anywhere. And the service is always friendly and prompt. We have our favorites, but we've tried just about everything on the menu, and it's all great.

Overall was a solid New Mexican dinner with authentic cuisine options like carne adobada and green/red chile sauces. There are better options for a nicer dinner setting maybe with less noise (the bar and televisions were in direct view of the dining room). There was live music playing that night, which is okay but somewhat makes a less quiet atmosphere. Overall a great place to eat, but not somewhere for a more special occasion.

We are regular customers at Blue Adobe Santa Fe Grille in Scottsdale. A visit with houseguests or newcomers always includes a trip to Blue Adobe, and it never disappoints. Delicious food!! The owner and his staff are welcoming and friendly, and the service is always terrific. Live music is always great too! We live nearby, but if not we would make the drive. My husband and I highly recommend Blue Adobe!

Excellent. I took a friend and she is gluten free and they had a special menu with detailed information. I requested a certain section in the restaurant and they had a big Reserved Sign on our table. And, my friend LOVED the food...like I do!

What a great find so close to home! Not the usual Mexican fare you find everywhere. In fact it is far from it! Innovative Southwestern cuisine with awesome spiciness in unexpected places. Great food, service & vibrant atmosphere! Will definitely return!

The building was nicely designed with a southwest style and clean looking. The staff was nice and fast. We were looking for good southwest/Mexican food with spicy and fresh tasting meat and veggies but instead got a cheap taste of Italian food. My Hatch garlic shrimp has a dozen nice shrimp but cook in cheese with pasta. I can't taste anything but cheese!!! my guest got the steak and pasta and the pasta is just overwhelmed with cheese!
In all, this was an average outing if only the food is more southwest and less Italian.

My server Daniel was great. This was my first time visiting Arizona, and I wanted to try Mexican inspired food. The food was good, but I was expecting more flavors. It is still a place worth visiting.

Great New Mexican cuisine that has a more appropriate Arizona regional feeling vs the typical Tex-mex joint. It's a lively scene in the evening with a nice patio that has heaters and also a few stools for outside seating at the bar. Service by management and staff makes you feel like a family member. Make sure you book a table as it is ever more popular restaurant especially on live entertainment nights.

Really enjoy this local restaurant, and its cuisine. The food is always fresh, but the service is really great! We always ask for Ms. Dana, who is experienced, knows the menu well, provides expert advise, and is truly professional.
Even though management seems to change frequently, the service level is maintained and slight changes to the the menu.
The prices have stayed affordable for a couple or family, they provide gift 🎁 certificates, parking can be tight after 6:30, so book early! If you haven't tried this place yet, it's a got'ta!

Outstanding all the way around - only complaint is the light level is hugely too low...can't see the great food nor menu nor utensils....it's fine to have low light for effect, but about 80% of the diners were using their phones to see!

We love this restaurant! We've been coming often for several years, so we were pleased to find out that they've made some changes to the menu. They still have all of our old favorites, but now there are some new favorites. The food and service are great! And they often have live music in the bar that you can enjoy while in the dining room. This is the best restaurant for this type of food anywhere in the area.
