Went for restaurant week and the waitress said that they weren’t serving the menu despite showing it on the website. When asking why she was unable to explain why. The wait for the food after ordering was extensive and at points I wanted to just leave. The food itself was really good but it took more than an hour for the food which I just don’t agree with in addition to the poor communication and the lack of explanation as to why the restaurant week menu wasn’t available.

The heat was not working throughout the restaurant - it was very uncomfortable. We were not initially told this when we walked in. After we sat for an hour and realized it wasn't getting any warmer, we asked and we were told that the heat was not working.

So we had to close our tab and relocate to a different restaurant, which was kind of annoying.

I've been here before, and I really like the food so we were quite bummed.

Simply awful. The heat was off in the building and they expected you to eat in the cold with your coats on.

We've walked by Blue Agave a number of times and decided to go in for dinner. The food was not very memorable but the skinny margaritas were good. The chunky guacamole was creamy, not chunky, but tasty nonetheless. My mesquite chipotle chicken was moist and served with a pineapple jalapeno chutney, a good combination. There is a good selection of sides but the black beans were a bit of a disappointment as was the verde rice. We had to try the Mexican street corn which was a little under-cooked but we enjoyed the flavor. The fish tacos were very messy (the corn tortilla had disintegrated so could only eat the fish with a fork) but we enjoyed the fajita burrito rojo. Not overly impressed with Blue Agave, but will give it another try.

We went early before a show at the Lyric Opera House (Flying Bach!) it took a little while to get a server and drinks- must have hit shift change as we sat for about five minutes before being served anything- but once we got over that, drinks were great, music was good, and fiord was exceptional! I had the stuffed chicken and it was sooo good! I definetly recommend the place for food and people watching.

I have the dish that comes in a lava bowl. Food was good. Trio of guacamole was awesome. I didn't like that my margarita came in a plastic cups instead of a margarita glass. My girlfriends and I had a great time.

I love this place. I've been here a couple times. The food is good and the margaritas are great! There are plenty of tequila options for shots and plenty of margarita options. This place is also great for watching the games as there are multiple TVs displaying various sports channels simultaneously. I will be back and I recommend that you come as well.

Just moved to the area and craving spicy Mexican food. We stumbled across Blue Agave and we are impressed! House margarita was yummy and had ample amounts of tequila and Cointreau. Guacamole was perfect amour of spicy/creamy. Our server was quick and attentive - she wrapped our left overs so we could enjoy the next day for lunch. I found out the deliver to my building - I will be ordering soon!

The food here is good, not great - it's just your standard Mexican fare. Although they did give you rather large portions - our table of four split the complimentary chips/salsa, guacamole, quesadilla and two orders of tacos and we were all very full - the food is nothing to write home about. The location of the restaurant was convenient for us as we needed to get to the Metra station after dinner with friends, but I wouldn't seek it out.

The food was fresh and I think has the potential to be really good, but the some items needed a little salt (and who ever thinks a restaurant needs more salt. No one). The good news is the food quality was good and it seemed healthier than other places.
