I loved the salmon teriyaki that I chose and my wife said the top shelf enchiladas were also wonderful. We shared their new fall item of a pumpkin roll dessert and it's a winner too. Jordon, our server, and the atmosphere were both excellent. We have been to Blue Agave many times and never leave disappointed.

This was a confusing experience. This place has such good reviews. The staff was very nice but the food was adequate at best. Perhaps it was an off night. We waited for a very, very long time for our drinks, appetizers, and food. The server said the kitchen was very backed up. That happens, totally understandable. But the food and drinks were not good. Edible, but not worth the $90 we spent.

We love the Blue Agave Grill! The menu is great and the drinks are outstanding. It did take awhile before we got water, chips and before our waitress arrived at our table. It was probably 10-12 minutes. I know that doesn't seem like a long time to wait but the dining area only had 4-5 tables filled at that time of the evening. In any case, once our waitress arrived, service was great! I do wish that you could pick different marg's on the flight. Our waitress asked but the bartender said no, we couldn't change our choices. Maybe they pre-mix all of the marg's and if they had to change one choice, they would have to make an entire drink because they can't just make the small flight size. Overall, Blue Agave is always a great choice for dining!

We really enjoyed our time at Blue Agave. Jordan was our server and he was THE BEST! We let him recommend food and drinks for our girls dinner before a concert and he brought us a spread of delicious appetizers (get the corn chorizo dip) and a sampling of tacos (the fish and shrimp were our favs). A margarita flight topped of our experience but it wouldn’t have been the same without Jordan and his excellent service and yummy recommendations. We will be back for brunch!

Food was good aside from the Rice, it was undercooked. The rice was still a little hard. The steak was actuallly really good, and the black beans were good.

Service was "not good" for my experience, with my wife and I being patient as well. I booked a table for my wife and I an hour in advance. When we got there and showed our reservation they ok'd and gave us basically a nightstand with 2 chairs hugging a wall while there were a couple booths open. So I asked our server if we could get a booth since there's some open, and I booked in advance so I was not expecting a small table the size of a nightstand. Server Ok'd and gave us a booth. So we were happy about that.

After ordering our food, drinks came fast, but we didn't get our food until almost an hour later I'd argue 50mins afterwards. Keep in mind we thought the server was very polite and nice. So this was the 2nd instance.

After we got our food, I asked for some A1 sauce to go with the steak, and our server came back and said he ran out of A1 so he's trying to find more in storage but was the amount that he brought out in a little dipping cup was ok, which the amount could be measured to the same as a packet of ketchup. At that point, I just told him "that's fine". So I had basically one dip worth of A1 to use for my steak lol.

I'm not one to throw a fuss, so take it for what it's worth. But if it's me I probably wouldn't go back. Maybe we just got unlucky idk..

We were celebrating my wife’s birthday last night by starting out with dinner at this restaurant. After dinner we were hitting a show at the Buell Theater. It took more than an hour to get our entrees. I ordered the Top Shelf Enchiladas. I thought I ordered the lobster only but when they came it was shrimp instead of lobster.

We picked this place for convenience after a long day at a convention, but it turned out to be a nice option. It was nice to sit outside and people watch along the mall. Started off with a tasty margarita and some shared queso dip. I was eyeing up some fish tacos, but was steered to the steak by our waiter - the steak was delicious but I should have gone with the lighter choice. The only complaint was over dessert - there was a "brownie flight" that must have been new to the menu, because none of the waiters could tell us what it was. I *thought* was going to be 3 different types of brownies flavored with liqueur, but it turned out to be a shot glass full of brownie crumbs served alongside three shots - not sure why or how this is supposed to be consumed. (We just ordered coffees and sipped at the shots - didn't feel like picking out brownie crumbles with my fingers.). So a weird ending, but an otherwise nice meal.

We eat out often in Denver and Blue Agave is one of our "go to" places consistently. Last nights dinner for four was no exception with extraordinarily excellent service by our server, Alex. He's new to that role but must be an agile learner since he explained menu to our guests knowledgeably and when bar service was a little slower than normal he explained why. Food was excellent as always. Alex also provided great service to a young family next to us solving a rubric cube problem in minutes to the entertainment of all. Great place, great service, knowledgeable & attentive staff. Will stop by again soon.

This is fairly casual but very good food. Blue Agave Margarita was delicious. The Chili Relleno was very good with shrimp and bacon added. Our guest ordered the chicken but was unhappy that the dish was served bone-in on a chicken breast dish. Salsa had a nice amount of heat.

They were super busy when we went in (Saturday night). I'm glad we had a reservation because they started to turn people away because the kitchen was super backed up.

We do have a team oriented service model in that all of our team can assist in running drinks, food, providing refills and taking re-orders, but it's also important that our guests' know who there server is.

A number of web-sites recommended Blue Agave Grill, so we decided to try it. Food was VERY good, and reasonably priced. Our server had very good recommendations, and useful information for every dish we asked about.

Service was, however, a little slow, but this seemed to be a chronic problem among Denver eateries.

In general, it was good food at a reasonable price.
