Blue Agave Club
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!
Very good Latinx food. When you sit down, a basket of amazing chips comes with a variety of three salsas.. Manageable size menu, not overwhelming with zillions of options. We started with Margeritas that were very tasty, emphasizing the taste of lime rather than alcohol. Appetizers we had were great shrimp and amazing tortilla soup. Both were terrific.
Wait staff was considerate and always ready to assist, without being intrusive.
The down side: tables are very close together, and the noise level is quite high. Perhaps in warmer weather more guests would have been seated on the large heated patio in the front of the restaurant. That would have helped.
This was our first time to Blue Agave. We arrived early evening on a Saturday night. Service was timely and nice staff. The tortilla soup is delicious!
Great food, nice ambiance, great patio in the front and nice Tequila selection.
We had a group of 8, and the staff was very accommodating. As always, the food here is excellent.
The food was ok but the service was quite poor even though it was not very busy. The waiters stood around chatting rather than checking tables. I was also annoyed by the fact that they only had Mexican beers. Some IPAs would have been quite nice. Great ambiance, ok food but given the service I likely won't return.
Really enjoyed both the historic location and the excellent menu. Would like to go back and try several more items!
We LOVE this place! The food is always fresh & the margaritas are wonderful! The staff are amazing too!!!
We had our Annual Family Christmas Dinner at the Blue Agave Club and it was absolutely fabulous! Everything was superb, the seating, the food, the drinks and desserts but more importantly the attention from our Chief Waiter and Servers, even the Chef came out to see our beautiful grandnephew! Everyone had a great time. Thank you so much! Suzan J.
We hadn’t been there in the past year, excellent service, margaritas and cuisine
Tree lighting and parade
Love the salsa and the aniversario margarita. Very friendly great tequila.
Great food, service and ambience.
Upscale Mexican restaurant in downtown Pleasanton. Good food. Fair pricing. Varied menu. Quick service.
I love Blue Agave Club! It's especially nice to sit outside on a nice day, but also nice and cozy inside if the weather doesn't allow. We really enjoy weekend lunch there with yummy margaritas and excellent service.
We went to celebrate a birthday. Would have preferred a 'brunch' menu on Sunday at noon, but there is none. Drinks were good, food was fine, service OK. A trio of salsas and refilled chips were a hit. It was just not a good value. Almost $17 for a burrito with rice/beans. One of our party requested a bit more guacamole and sour cream for her plate. What was delivered were small bowls of each, at an additional cost, of course, of $8. No acknowledgement of our birthday person. Probably won't be back. Lots of other choices along Main St.
Love this restaurant. It's one of our favorite places to meet friends and drink margaritas. Staff is extremely good and friendly. Just a wonderful place to hangout.
For the price is was much higher than expected for what you get, too much seafood on the menu - that was my mistake for not looking first
Great outside dining. The food was fresh and the cocktails were very good. This a good casual dining place with friends and family.
Server was very pleasant and wonderful
Only bad mark was, we were seated with the lights broken so a little dark otherwise ambience was great and great food.
Great Margaritas :) aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
The most disgusting chips. Tasted like cardboard!
Food was ok but our entire table thought chip were gross.
Food was terrible. Mahi Mahi was so dried out and steak was like shoe leather. Ambience was nice but I would never go back here to eat. Maybe to have a beer.
We were very disappointed in the entrees. The salmon was overdone and the vegetables and sauce lacked flavor. The New York steak was evidently ok, but elicited no raves and the vegetables were not good enough to finish. Didn't live up to the expensive pricing.
Mahi was dry. The steak was over cooked and there was zero attention to service. We sat for almost 20 min without even a greeting or drink order. Won’t go back. Sorry I had a 90$ bill here for a place that I once thought was amazing.
I selected this restaurant for date night with my husband because we love Mexican food, it shows up on just about every best restaurant list for the area, the pictures looked delicious, and it was close to the next stop for our date night. We were both incredibly disappointed with the food. Both of our dishes were literally drowning in disgusting sauces. The mole on my husbands plate was sweet and powerfully cinnamon-like tasting. The sauce and seafood seasoning on my seafood enchiladas was also permeated by the same spice. The rice and beans were ordinary at best. The saving grace was the sample of guacamole my husband received with his platter. I scraped off as much of the sauce as I could and topped my food with the guacamole. We were also displeased with the margarita. There is a page full of listings - they claimed to use fresh juice but it tasted even worse than the bottled crap. Everything was overpriced for the quality of the food. I will say that the service was good and the ambiance was nice. We will never return though.
Despite everything being satisfactory, we felt rushed to get out of there by our server. I guess they close down after lunch for dinner service which I wasn’t aware of being from out of town.
Good food good service and great patio seating in the heart of downtown with excellent margaritas
Nice local. Food just okay..................,,,,,,,
I never ate at this place thinking it was too expensive, but I was wrong. Lunch is very reasonable. The food is really good Mexican for California, with different types of salsas served as an appetizer with chips (free). The tortilla soup is spicy, warm, and good. GREAT atmosphere outside, peaceful, shaded, heaters in the winter. Picket fence. Nice to watch main street. I was really impressed.
Food was delish and great sangria! Service was excellent and a beautiful warm evening to sit outside and ejoy a meal.
Wonderful time cool evening great food great company . 3 birthdays. My son my daughter my son in law.
Great Mexican food and margaritas. Good service and friendly staff.
Blue Agave never disappoints. Delicious, authentic Mexican food in an up-scale but casual setting. I have eaten there many times and have never had a bad meal or a bad service experience.
I only wish the bar was a little larger with more seating.
In the 1980s during a trip to New Year my wife and I went to a Chinese fusion restaurant and experienced the single most expensive entree pricing for a Chinese meal ever. Our experience seemed fitting for NYC West Side restaurant in NYC and we constantly refer back to that experience when dining sticker shock occurs.
Decades later, we may begin to reference Blue Agave. It’s nicely situated in old town Pleasanton. I just didn’t know that old town Pleasanton ranked with West Side NYC. Go figure.
Service was spotty after the margarita pitcher order was placed. It seemed that everyone was waiting for service - to pay, to order, to amend - and servers were lost behind the firewall of the restaurant with diners situated outside.
If you like peasant food at top dollar and you can psyche yourself out to believe that Pleasanton is the cat’s pajama when seeking out a Mexican meal, then this is your place. Food and ambience was great and prices even greater. It’s just weird paying fusion prices for Mexican fare.
It was perfect weather to dine outside. We had marvelous conversation and enjoyed the food immensely.
Great evening on the patio!
The sauce on my enchilada was to thick and goughie and the shrimp was OVER COOKED
Authentic mexican dishes, especially the enjococado chicken is marvelous. Outdoor service was slower than was comfortable.
We went to Blue Agave for dinner to celebrate my husband‘s birthday. The staff made it so fun—they brought him a complimentary flan and a shot of tequila and we all had a blast. The food was delicious—and variety of tequilas is awesome!
