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 had a group of 20 friends and family for Easter Brunch! It was amazing, the staff is incredible, the food was awesome and we felt that we were the most special customers that the Blue Agave had in the restaurant. We were not rushed to leave. I would highly recommend the Blue Agave Club for any events, small or large. Excellent service!

My wife just loved her surprise birthday dinner. We had our favorite table for two with the best view of Main Street. Our waiters were very friendly and cordial. The margaritas were very tasty but not overpowering. My wife had Enchiladas Vegetarianas and I had Enchiladas del Mar. Both entrees were very good and flavorful but not too spicy.

After dinner, all of the waiters came to our table and surprised my wife with the Agave Flan dessert. The waiters began singing her Happy Birthday with the guests nearest us, joining in. It was a wonderful ending to an awesome Birthday celebration for my beautiful wife.

High end Mexican food with regional specialties from all over Mexico. Sauces on dishes are remarkably good and unique around the area. Excellent selection of Margaritas with something for everyone's taste. Definitely specialize in tequilas here. Helpful, attentive, friendly staff.

Was in town from east coast and met my siblings at Blue Agave for a mini reunion. The restaurant staff was very accommodating to our multi-generational group. The food was great and the service fabulous!! My family and I had time to catch up over a leisurely meal and never felt rushed.

We (16 people) celebrated my daughter’s first wedding anniversary at this restaurant and all of us had a wonderful time. We got a cozy room to ourselves. Our guests loved the margaritas and the tequilas ; Anejo being the popular one... The food was tasty and quality of food was excellent: light on stomach! Tres Leche cake was marvelous too!! Service was friendly. We will cherish this memory of a cheerful dining experience!!!

After many years, still my favorite restaurant in the East Bay. Tortilla soup is the greatest soup of any kind I have ever had. Margarita list is massive and they are all so smooth. It's better sitting outside but inside is nice too if it's cold out. It took a little while to get seated and served this time, but that's about the only non-positive comment I can make

Carnitas was excellent, Margaritas are also superb with many high quality Tequilla's.

Seating is mostly outside under heaters, can be a bit cool but nice ambience.

Super over-priced for what you get. No a la carte menu whatsoever. A friend ordered a chicken enchilada and got some deconstructed awful mess resembling NOTHING like an enchilada. With that said, there are some special feature entrees that were pretty good. Again though, way too expensive. There are great Mexican options that will run you less than 1/2 of our bill.

I almost broke my toe outside on their brick walkway on the side of house/restaurant. I was obviously in a lot of pain and the manager never came by to see if I was ok the waiter seemed concerned. It just seems a little loose as far as how the run the place. I came for chili Colorado they don't have it anymore can you believe that. I had the mole it wasn't anything to write home about. I think they buy it and not make it there. The mole sauce is a long process to be excellent, there's was ok needed more characters Chen and less sauce. My wife bowl seemed kinda small for the price. I don't think I'll return.

Food was good but not good enough to make us go back after the service we got. We were sat immediately, margarita came quickly as did the food. THEN... Our table was left alone after dinner for 30 min before someone popped their head in and asked if we wanted coffee. Granted it was NYE but the restaurant wasn’t packed by any means. No excuse for paying extra attention to the table with 6 older folks and leaving us wondering if we were going to get the bill ever. Over $100 for the two of us and it was not worth it.

The food was great, but a bit overpriced. The service was great, except one of us ordered a drink that was never delivered, and it was still on our bill (easily corrected when brought to their attention). The inside dining can get quite loud; however, it was holiday party time; they were gracious and offered to moved us to a quieter table. I do love this place, mostly for the good food and the tequila menu. It is especially nice in spring & summer when you can sit outside.

We visited this restaurant in summer time when menu was much larger and weather was appropriate for outdoor dining. This time, we sat inside, our server was distracted by others and not very present and the menu was much limited. My colleague's margarita was mostly tequila and mine wasn't as good as this summer either. Recommend avoiding until weather improves for outdoor seating, expanded menu and better service available.

I love Blue Agave's atmosphere. Beautiful location in downtown Pleasanton, outdoor seating on a great patio with very friendly wait staff and they easily accommodate 6-30 people for different events I've had there. Only downside is service is very slow, even for 8 people, but if you have time to enjoy the evening and chat with friends, this is a great restaurant.

We sat on the patio and had a great time watching the street scene . The Margaritas we had were great I cant remember the name as there are so many to choose from. The food was delicious including the tortilla soup, carnitas, enchiladas. They had many seafood entrees and a very different pleasing menu. The portions are very substantial. I would definitely come here again the next time I am in Pleasanton.

This place is always worth the 40 minute drive time for us. They offer some really special Mexican dishes that you won't get anywhere else, and some that are just the best of their kind. Cocktails are great and you can have a margarita custom made from their long list of tequilas. It's a fun place and in the right weather, sitting outside is an amazing treat. Try the 100 year old chicken recipe - it's to die for.

Have eaten here several times. The food and ambiance were outstanding as each time in the past. The one disappointment on this night was after excellent service throughout the meal, we could not get the waiter to pick up our tab to pay. After waiting 15 minutes, and seeing another table get their bill, pay and get their receipt, I had to go up front to pay.

We will still visit again in the future.

We go to Blue Agave a few times a year. It is consistently great food. All the help is kind, funny, and efficient. It is not the cheapest dinner you can have, but it is worth the price. The ambiance is great being able to eat outside is an added treat, plus it is in downtown Pleasanton!

This is the second time we've eaten here in the past three months. The food is varied and delectable. I especially like dining outdoors during the summer months. The margarita choices are extensive as well. We recommend it to anyone looking for a great Mexican restaurant in Pleasanton.
