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.

The food and service were terrific. They accidentally got a salad request omission wrong. They were very quick to apologize and have it redone. The manager came and also apologized and took it off the bill. That’s good customer service!

We found the menu a little confusing at first but like the way the main ingredients of each item is listed. Food was very good and service great. Was hoping for a more holiday seaon decorated feel but the usual decor is good.

We visited at 2 pm after a tour of the Frank Lloyd Wright property nearby. We sat inside because it had gotten chilly and shady on the patio. We were given a nice booth by the windows, away from a loud group of women in the other room. A man turned the AC up a bit when he noticed that I was cold, which was very nice and also rare. Lauren was our waitress and she was terrific. We loved our food, mahi mahi tacos and halibut enchiladas. The salsa was delicious as well and seemed to be made of eggplant. All in all, it was a wonderful lunch. We will return on our next trip to Scottsdale.

Food and service was great! The ambiance in the main dining area was just ok. Lighting was too bright and the booths felt like I was dining at a mall fast food outlet.
The outdoor patio dining however did look good an inviting.

We had eaten at Blue Adobe several years ago while in town on business. The meal was memorable and the food delicious. We are vacationing in Phoenix this week and wanted to visit Blue Adobe again. We were not disappointed! The Santa Fe Bay and Kabobs were excellent. The service was attentive. We enjoyed eating again at Blue Adobe and highly recommend this restaurant.

Not traditional Mexican....but better!!!
Every dish ordered, by 6 of us, was delicious!
Only request would be to have more dishes without hot spice (allergic to 🌶).
Outdoor dining was perfect and the staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly!
We’ll definitely go there again, on our next visit to AZ.

We go to BAG at least every other week, the food is consistent, tasty and fresh. The service is great and we always asks for DANA who is an outstanding server, knows customer service, and provides great restaurant recommendations!! The prices are reasonable, and there is plenty of parking for now... while the snow birds are still out of town. So, if you have not tried this place, it's a gotta try...

This was just what we were looking for on a Sarurday evening. Great food, drunks, and staff. There was a three piece band (fantastic) that were very interactive with the crowd, not intrusive, just right. Our group LOVES live music and good food. Could not ask for more. Fantastic!
