Great place to eat if you’re looking for some southwest/Mexican style food in the downtown area. Really good margaritas and an extensive tequila list. Food is reasonably priced for what you get and is tasty. The corn/chorizo dip is highly recommend! Overall a good value.

Had dinner here before a show at the Paramount. It’s an easy MallRide (bus) down the 16th St mall.

I had been there twice, but took my two besties and they loved it. Max was our waiter and he did a super great job with all of our special requests.

I love this place!

We have been to Blue Agave on numerous occasions. Upon arrival for our recent visit we learned that because we booked through Open Table we would receive a free appetizer, $16 or less. Our server was training another server and it just didn’t seem like they were on it. My margharita came with salt when I ordered no salt, oh, and that free appetizer was a no show. When our dinner arrived our server + server-in- training never even noticed things were off. Oh well. We typically rave about Blue Agave but this time the overall experience was not so rave worthy.

Hi AnnC, I am sorry about the service you received, sounds like we failed to meet our standards of service. I'm happy to hear you frequent us on occasion and look forward to seeing you again in the near future. We will be sure to work on our training program and expectations with our trainers to avoid any issues in the future. We are grateful for your feedback and promise to be better on your next visit. I'd be happy to take care of an appetizer on your next visit too! Robert General Manager

When a restaurant doesn’t give the patron relaxed pace of serving, it’s a no return policy for me. Both appetizer and entree were served within seven minutes of our ordering them. That is not a great way to have a special night out!

Our food was absolutely delicious for the meal. The chips and salsa weren't overly spectacular considering how delicious the remainder of the food was. For restaurant week, 3 courses is the average and there wasn't a desert here, disappointing since it was my birthday, but overall a good experience.

This place was just great in terms of food, service and value. I ate early so it was fairly quiet, and found out they had a $25 restaurant week special, with a lot of nice appetizer/entree options. The chef street taco was fish, but they happily substituted pork for me, wonderful with fruit salsa and crema. I chose the skirt steak asado with rice and black beans for my entree. It was flavorful, rare as ordered, and tender. It came with a shrimp and lobster enchilada, with a light cream sauce. Nice surf and turf! I had enough steak and rice and beans left for a great lunch today! I'll be back.

I love the theme of the restaurant and the atmosphere. The frozen margaritas are to die for as well as the fish tacos. Will soon come back with a family member. The only qualm I have is the chips with the salsa. It tastes store bought and made from Tostitos. If that is the case, I would really love to have restaurant-made chips. Other than that, thumbs up!

I went to Blue Agave last Saturday for my birthday dinner. I was sooooo excited... I actually used to be a Server Manager at the original Blue agave in Fort Collins, and hadn't been able to visit since I moved down to Denver. That being said, I may have ridiculously high standards.

To start, from the time we were seated until the time we were asked for our drink orders, it was about 15 minutes. It happens, so we will move on. The next time we saw our server (probably another 15 minutes after we received our drinks), we were ready to order not only our appetizers, but our entrees as well. This is where the fun really started. All of our food came out before any appetizers. Then, we were missing TWO of the three appetizers we ordered! THEN, there was hair in a friend's food. So, the manager comes out to apologize for the hair- and we notify him that we are still waiting on some appetizers. He proceeds to tell us that our server told him we ordered our entrees and then decided to order apps. That was a total lie. Then, the manager just walks away. (You can see how great this experience was, I'm sure.) Ugh. I will also add that we ordered a non-alcoholic mojito during this time, which was forgotten about until we asked again for it at the end of our meal and the the server charged us for a mojita-rita. Also, numerous sauces were forgotten that were asked for as well, but I am kind of beating a dead horse with a stick at this point. What a total disaster, and I am honestly embarrassed at how much I talked Blue Agave up to my friends! Our server was nice enough, and he had a great sense of humor, and they comped our bill... but wow. It seems like since Blue Agave got so popular, their service standards have really dropped. I am sad that I know have such reservation to visit one of my favorite restaurants again!

I love, love, love coming to Blue Agave Grill. I always feel like I am coming home in a sense. The people who work there love being there and want to make sure you are going to enjoy your time. I was having our monthly Book Club and arrived way to early. Jeff was wonderful and said the table was already set up so no problem, let's get you seated. He brought my Sangria Swirl (one of the reasons I love this place) and chips and salsa. He told me to send a photo of the drink to my friends so they would come on over.

Jeff had fun with us by giving us suggestions for entrees, asking if we needed anything and showing how to land a drink napkin on the table. Some of our group didn't make it, but the best part was Jeff made us feel welcome. We had a wonderful time discussing our book and then catching up. When we got ready to leave, we all gave hugs to Jeff.

If you want to go somewhere where they value you, the food is excellent and the adult beverages are spot on, head over to Blue Agave Grill. These people love making your dining experience something special.
