A member of our party wears hearing aids & is very sensitive to noise when wearing them. The manager graciously sat us in an area that, it appeared, wasn’t in his plan to be used that evening. We appreciated his flexibility and that of his staff.

Our server was among the best we have ever had. We were in a hurry as we had gotten stuck in traffic and had to get to a show. She made excellent recommendations and the service was wonderful and quick. Food tasted great and we will return again when we have some more time. Great, great experience- highly recommend!

This is the second time we have a bad experience at this restaurant. We knew it would be a rough night when our waitress asked me if I wanted my wine in a glass. Excuse me? When my wife asked her what the driest white wine was, she had to go ask someone. There was only 5-6 different wines on the menu. My wife ordered chicken tacos and I ordered a cup of green chili and steak roja. We waited and waited for my chili to come out. When I finally asked, the waitress apologized and the chili came out with the entree. When I asked the food runner why the soup didn’t come our earlier, she said she didn’t know what the policies of this restaurant was. What? The tacos were okay. my steak was tough for being a marinated steak, cooked as requested. The green chill was good and spicy, but didn’t really go with the steak. So, I only ate half of it. I ordered a second glass of wine and it took a while to get that. The manager was very nice and covered our meals and gave us some coupons for a future visit. That was nice. I gave the coupons to another couple eating next to us. We have no intentions of visiting this restaurant again. There are way too many good restaurants in downtown Denver.

We come here at least once a week and the food and margaritas are to die for. Great time again on Saturday night. Highly recommend this restaurant. The staff is very friendly and we always talk with the management because they come to the table.

Went before a concert. It was just ok. Dirty silverware & napkin not a great way to start. My shrimp tacos had maybe 2 pieces of shrimp in them...

We had dinner before a concert here with friends. The service was attentive and prompt. Both the scallops entree and the shrimp entree were both prepared well and lightly seasoned. The steak rojo was prepared exactly to order and the salmon was not overcooked, however the sauce on the salmon was a bit overpowering. There were $5 margaritas that evening that were very good!

Blue Agave is slipping, I’m afraid. The guacamole - flavorless. The chicken - burned. The seafood enchiladas (which use to be full of lobster) - flavorless and full of tiny bay shrimp. We are truly disappointed, because Blue Agave has been one of our favorite places. Fix it quickly, because the crowd size would indicate that we are not the only ones noticing.

Open table advertised a free app with purchase of entree, mentioned to waiter, he was unaware but said he'd take care of it. The coconut shrimp app was excellent. Mojito margarita was very good. Chile relleno entree was different than you're used to, more of an open-faced chile with stuffing on top, nothing special. The mango fish tacos were very good and a substantial portion. When bill came, the "free" app was on it, brought it to waiter's attention and he got it removed. All in all, just an ok experience.

I took several folks from a valued client to dinner here last night, and everything was GREAT. All six of us raved on the food and the margaritas. I had the Airline Chicken, funny in that it's the 2nd one, it had great flavor and I'd get it again. One of my new fav's, Blue Agave that is.

I have visited the Blue Agave Grill in Ft Collins and now Denver. Both were excellent in service as well as food. Everything we have tried has been above expectations. The mango tacos are delicious as well as their nightly specials. Turning into one of our favorite restaurants.
