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.

My wife and I have been here a few times. The food is amazing and the service is excellent. My wife deals with celiac disease and must avoid gluten. This location is able to accommodate with multiple options.

360 degrees of meh. Salsa at start about the best thing. Portions are small for the price and quality. No one finished their entrees but not because we weren't hungry, just blah. Will not return.

I made reservations for 14 at lunch time because my team was in town for meetings. I'd previously been to Blue Agave and enjoyed the food. I was not disappointed this time in regards to food quality. However, for some reason, our group was not taken care of at all.

I realize it was a large group but the time in between ordering appetizers and our meals was entirely too long and no one was offered additional drinks during this time. Once we finally had our orders taken, it took our food over an hour to get from the kitchen to our table, and again no one offered us anything in between and certainly did not give us information as to why the food so delayed. Once my boss questioned the timing, our server was unfriendly and even rude to my boss.

This was disappointing behavior given we had been patient up to this time. Then when my food arrived, the order was wrong. The manager was quick to catch the mistake (as I wasn't going to complain because I was too hungry and we all needed to get back to work) so that was refreshing. However, the entire experience, and the fact that we had to eat quickly because we were gone much longer than we anticipated, was disappointing.

I would definitely recommend this place for food and ambiance, but I question whether they can handle a large party, and I would suggest that management remind their servers that customer service means putting on a nice face when a situation such as this arises in the future.

We went there with my son and his girlfriend to celebrate my husband’s 60th birthday with my son. My son has frequented the Fort Collins location many times and has raved about the food and service. Our special occasion was notated when I made the reservation. They seated us in the very back left of the restaurant next to a table reserved for a large party. It was extremely warm in the back compared to the front of the restaurant. I asked three times, both the waiter and I believe a manager if they could turn on the air and they said they would. It never happened. We received our cocktails and guacamole pretty quickly. However, it took one hour from the time we ordered our dinner to receive it. We purposely ordered our dinner well before the large party had been seated. Both the manager and waiter kept saying it was on its way. My food was lukewarm. I was too annoyed by then to say anything and just wanted to get out of there. The restaurant never recognized my husband’s birthday and did not comp us anything. Needless to say, I will never be back and will never recommend this location!

This is a well-run restaurant. Accommodating for large parties, servers are positive and helpful. We had a time restriction for a show and they made sure we made it on time. Half a block from Lainie's Clock Tower Cabaret, one block from Comedy Works, a few blocks from Denver Center for the Performing Arts. I park in the Writer's Square parking lot and walk everywhere. The black and white nachos are amazing. I've been here several times with many small and large groups--I've never been disappointed.

We ate the vegetarian enchilada which was made out of blue corn tortillas and cream cheese and the tacos en Fuego. Both were good but I thought there would be more veggies in the enchilada. The margaritas were outstanding and we enjoyed the flight of four different flavors. The muy macho Jalapeño margarita was our favorite. This margarita is truly worth trying for a drink that is unique to this resturant.

Our office chose Blue Agave for a company outing after a conference. We booked our reservation very last minute, and the restaurant did a great job accommodating our party of 13. The service was timely, multiple recommendations were made by our server for food/drinks and everyone enjoyed the food that they ordered. The location was in a lively part of downtown, which made it easy to explore more of the downtown area after dinner. We would definitely consider booking another company dinner at this restaurant!

In Denver in business. Blue A was recommended by my hotel. Good choice. Food was great the but staff was remarkable. Needed a to-go bag but they were out. Our server literally went next door to the Cheesecake Factory and got bags from them. Amazing.

We had a large group to celebrate a birthday and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating
and professional. The variety of beverages, appetizers and food that is offered made it easy for each of us to order something we would enjoy. The staff was knowledgeable and assisted in recommendations.
It was a great experience - nothing negative to report. Truly appreciate the efforts made to ensure that we had a great meal and night!

Disappointed. The service was terrible. The food was good, but not exceptional. We have eaten here many times, and usually it is very good. However, this time the service was very bad and the food was not as good as it use to be. Not sure what has changed, but something is not as it was. We have decided not to dine here for awhile - hopefully it improves.

Hi Teresa, first off, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to leave us some feedback. I know how disappointing dining out can be when the experience falls short of expectations. I'm sorry to hear you didn't receive the service and quality of food you are accustomed to. I assure you that this is not what we have become, nor does this experience meet our standards of service and food quality. I'd love to invite you back in knowing that we can do much better as we have in the past. -Rob

Thank you, Alex, for going above and beyond to accommodate our company dinner given the buy-out circumstances. The food, drinks and service were all excellent! Favorites of the group were the Muy Macho Margarita, the queso-corn dip and Top Shelf enchiladas. Thanks again for a great evening!

Our server Brandon either visually eyed the table or came to the table to bus dishes 9 times (we counted) when our drinks were empty without offering more cocktails for either of us. He literally didn't say a single word to us between our ordering dinner and offering dessert, not even checking on us after our entrees were delivered. I ended up getting our second round from the bar, and I'm not even sure he noticed.
