Blue Agave Club, in Pleasanton, California, offers a vast assortment of outstanding Mexican food. The atmosphere is what you would expect from a high-end dining establishment and Blue Agave Club fits that bill. The restaurant is known for 100% blue agave tequila margaritas, as well as a secret homemade sweet and sour sauce.

Some of the most popular entrees at Blue Agave Club are the sauteed mahi-mahi with cauliflower and rice, vegetarian enchiladas and enjococado, which comes from a 100-year-old family recipe. Many recipes are vegetarian or can be made that way, including the Blue Agave Bowl with vegetables, rice, beans and zucchini blossom sauce.

We also have Happy Hour in our Bar, Monday - Thursday 5:30 - 7pm!

The food was very good as always. The low service score is because our server was asked to split the the check (2 groups of 3) and said he would do it later. LATER, he presented one check for six and when questioned by one of our guests (in Spanish), told her he was too busy. Eventually she went to a manger and got the bill sorted out.
Yeah it was busy but I've seen much bigger crowds. He could have avoided the problem by taking the original order in two parts. this was just lunch, not a banquet.

I want to start this review with the understanding that I believe a good selection of tequila is necessary for a Mexican restaurant to be considered worthy of a high rating, and The Blue Agave Club has got that more than covered. Do yourself a favor if you are in the Pleasanton CA area and give it a try! The downtown area is quaint, the food is fabulous, and the tequila selection is second to none. One of my all time favorites, and visiting on business once a year from New Jersey, where we seriously lack Mexican restaurants of this caliber, I never miss the opportunity to dine here.

My wife's meal was cold and had to be taken back to the kitchen. Mine was semi warm so I decided to just eat it. Eventually the staff brought a plate to the table next to us that was exactly what my wife had ordered and they hadn't so we asked for it from them realizing they made an error giving it to the wrong table, which by the way they also had been missing parts of their orders.

The food really wasn't very good at all. The restaurant was so cold, this was inside where it should have been cozy warm, so we kept our winter coats on the entire time we were there. Not pleasant at all.

Summing it up, sub-par quality food, poor service, over priced and cold uninviting atmosphere. Won't be going back.

I have been coming to Blue Agave for over 10 years. Since David was a bartender, and now he helps run the place. Wonderful food, excellent selection of tequila and service that is a 10-plus. Perhaps we are treated like family here, but we love the food, consistency, and atmosphere. The absolute BEST outdoor seating in Pleasanton! Highly recommend, and will be back again soon!

Always a terrific spot. In summer, you have the garden. In the winter, the carefully decorated inside, with cool chairs and a feeling of being in a friend's house. The sopa de tortilla is the best in the world. Everything else is a wonderful taste of being in the Yucatan. The service is amazing. This is just the best place and worth the drive, even if you're not close. We make a point of coming here when we can because it is just great. This time was for lunch, but in the evening, we enjoy their terrific drink menu, comparing different tequilas in margaritas.

Music outside with the guitarist Sedlak was a nice surprise. Ended up eating outside so we could hear him. Heat lamps kept up toasty warm. Food and drinks were better than I remember. Was a magical night.

We were really disappointed in our first visit here. Ordered the calamari which came out barely warm, really dried out and completely underwhelming. Drinks were okay but didn't taste like there was much tequila in them at $11 each. Hubby's burrito was pretty good but twice the price of most other places. Overall we were disappointed. Mentioned there was a birthday, they didn't recognize it.

First off, the restaurant was not seating anyone inside. Only on the patio. Second, The waiter that waited on us was not very professional and very curt when taking the order and the runner was close to just throwing the plates of food on the table. Third, my 16 year old ordered the steak from the menu and they brought out the steak with a shot of tequila. What kind of place does this with a 16 year old sitting there.
We have been coming to this restaurant for awhile, but no more.

Great food and an imaginative drink menu make this a wonderful place to dine in either a well decorated indoor dining area, or outdoors on the abundantly grand patio. The beautiful trees and umbrellas offer ample shade in the summer months, and outdoor heaters make it very comfortable in cooler weather. The food is unusual, concentrating more on Mexican regional dishes and there are several items on the menu that are unique and delicious. There are also traditional items to choose from. The service is very friendly and expedient.

Disappointed. This is a long-time favorite restaurant in Pleasanton but this visit did not meet expectations. The higher end (read priced) margaritas we got (3 different kinds) were just okay. The service was unattentive. Out of the 3 dishes - including the "special" only the cevice we'd rate as "good" The outdoor patio remained very nice and the live musician was the right volume which added to the evening.

A nice place if you want to sit outside and hear great music. Food was pricey and service a little slow, we never got water refills. We also got charged for a little hot sauce since the salsas were too mild.

The mahi mahi was over-cooked, and had no flavor. They covered it up with sauce, absolutely drowned the fish in sauce. Another in our party had shrimp and crab stuffed enchiladas. Hers, too, was awful. Not authentic in the least. Ambience is great here, we were so looking forward to a nice meal, with guests in town (clients). We hadn't been to this restaurant in probably five years, as that memory was also pretty bad. We will never recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We go there for many work luncheons. Since we are usually a large group of 10 or more they do a good job at getting everyone served and timely. The food has been consistent over the years and is still one of our local favorite spots. Dining outside is the best.
