Very fresh ingredients and excellent service. Guacamole was outstanding. Taquitos appetizer could have been more flavorful but my partner loved his lynch bowl.

Worse experience I ever had to encounter! Came with party of 3 one of us order a burrito with shrimp, based on menu description burrito supposed to be 12 inches long with shrimp. When burrito arrived it was less then 6 inches long and full of rice with 3 shrimp or less. In addition for appetizer we order chips and guacamole after completing that the waitress brought chips for the table which she said that it’s complementary!!! Wish she told us that prior to ordering one that we had to pay for!!! Overall the food was not worth the money! I been around many many different types of restaurants, never wrote a single negative review until this one!

The place was quiet with a pleasant atmosphere. The portions were generous as well as delicious. Our waitress was attentive and gave very helpful recommendations. I would not hesitate to have dinner at the Blue Agave in the future.

When we arrived we saw that it was packed. When the host informed us that they didn’t have our reservation (even though I had gotten a confirmation) he said it would be a 30 mins wait and he’d get our first round of drinks. We asked about the backyard but were told they don’t have enough patrons to warrant opening it. It took nearly 15 mins to get drinks. When we finally sat, 45 mins later the table wasn’t clean and half the restaurant was empty now, Our server took our drink order and again it took an annoyingly long time. We placed our orders for entrees and 3/5 were wrong. The drinks were good and the food wasn’t anything special. Good but nothing memorable. I’d go again but it wouldn’t be my first choice.

went out with friends for dinner and drinks .. we wanted to try something new and found Blue Agave on Yelp... it had seemingly great reviews so we wanted to check it out. Overall, the food wasn’t incredible, just good. The shrimp poppers were yummy but the mango ceviche was bland. The guacamole was also just ok. Entrees were more flavorful than the apps. The servers were very nice. They cleared away plates and refilled water in a timely manner.

Other than the fact that the waiter dropped a drink on my mother(I think he was training), he was very nice and the food was good ☺️

Blue Agave is a small space, but they use it very well. I would suggest removing one table from the wall area so people can stretch out just a little when entering and leaving the tables. The service was excellent and the drinks, even the specials were good also.

I will say that the Mango Ceviche was delicious, fresh and crisp just the way it should be. The pork I ordered was slightly undercooked for my liking and the tostones were slightly overcooked. Overall, the experience was good and I enjoyed the food, even with those small complaints.

They do have a beautiful outdoor patio that was already closed for the night, but since I have eaten here before I know that it is definitely something different and a way to get out of the noise of 3rd Avenue.

It was a wonderful Mother’s Day brunch. The food was excellent, server and host was phenomenal. Only recommendation I would make is to get another bathroom stall. It’s only one bathroom. Two would be better for the size of the place. That’s my only suggestion. Otherwise everything was immaculate.

I've been coming here since they first opened in 2013. This place is one of my Favorite restaurants. the food never disappoints and their margaritas are the best I've ever tasted. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for delicious authentic Mexican food.

The blandest Mexican food I’ve ever had. Literally no flavor, even the guacamole was bland. Maybe the cooks were of that day but it was bad.

I made a reservation for 1:15pm. They overbooked and I had to wait over an hour for a table, there were 9 of us on a Sunday brunch. When we finally did get seated, service was slow. I had to ask them to take our orders, bring out dessert for a birthday.
Very disappointed, embarrassed and underwhelmed by the food and service.

Although I did not have a bunch of food off the menu, what I did have was delicious. It helps that the staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating. It felt like I was hanging out with friends. I will definitely be back to try other things on the menu.

We had so much fun. The food was great. My burrito was huge! The margarita's were so good we ordered a second pitcher. I can't imagine we could have had better service. The place was busy but not so loud we couldn't converse.

Food was good. Drinks took a while to come out even while they werent busy. They closed the bar without letting us know it was last call which left us with a bad taste considering we were a 5 top clearly celebrating a birthday and spending money. When we asked for another round they said the bar was closing. Turned on the light to rush us out- we were celebrating a birthday did not realize closing time being we had a late reservation. End of night could have been handled much better.
