Our first visit to the Blue Agave was an excellent experience. Food, service, and atmosphere were excellent. Recommend the chili relleno dish if you want a relleno prepared a little different than the usual and spicy if you choose the chorizo. The margarita was better than most we have had in Denver. Our server was friendly, attentive, and helpful. We would definitely return.

Our party of 6 loved the food and variety of choices for different preferences. I would give a higher review except we encountered one challenge. We were seated at noon on Sunday. We reviewed the menus and selected our choices. Then a staff came and took away our current menus and replaced them with "dinner menus" that have higher prices for the same entrees. We had already chosen what we were ordering and now we were going to pay up to $2 more for the same food, but from a different menu. Not a good look. This was not professional.

We ordered a bottle of wine and it came to the table already open, then the waiter proceeded to uncork and broke the cork. When ordering entrees we asked if the steak was spicy and were told no but when the dish arrived it was spicy. The server was not able to identify which temperature of meat each person ordered. Finally for desert we ordered to go without ice cream and one came with ice cream. People were going to the restroom and entering the restaurant without mask.
Absolutely horrendous experience, would not recommend for a nice dinner.

The food wasnt worth the $65 a person and they forgot the ice cream on my desert ! With prices like that you would think the dinner would have been flawless and it definitely was NOT!

Hi Mav23, I am sorry the food fell short during your experience. Our guests' service, experience, and meals are all a priority. We don't typically offer a prix fixe menu, other than some holidays, to ensure our guests' experience is flawless. Forgetting to serve ice cream is inexcusable on our part. Please accept my apologies as I know we can do better and certainly exceed your expectations. I'd love to invite you back in on me.

This was our first experience with this restaurant and it happened on NYE. They offered a fixed menu with 2 price options ($42 and $65), that included an appetizer, entree, and dessert. They also offered the same menu items on an a la carte basis. I opted for the $42 menu and had the coconut shrimp to start followed by the teriyaki salmon. Although well presented, the coconut breaded shrimp was mushy which suggests it is previously frozen. The salmon served with garlic mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus was overdone and burnt on the bottom. The asparagus was overcooked, soggy, and with too much pepper. My wife, who prefers vegan options, ordered the Blackened Tofu (ala carte for $30), from the $65 menu. You can see from the photos, this was not an impressive meal by any standards. The quality of the food is what one might expect from a local sports bar. In fairness to the restaurant, this was NYE and restaurants typically increase their prices. That is not a problem. I also understand that COVID and staffing issues may have played a part in what I can only describe as a lackluster meal. That said, we loved the location, we loved the ambiance, and we loved the service. For those reasons, we will go back on a non-holiday weekend to experience their typical menu and hopefully, the food will rise to the level of the ambiance and service.

Hi StevieG, Thanks for the feedback and call-outs on opportunities. I'm happy to know you'll come back and experience what Blue Agave is all about, as I assure you we have high-quality ingredients and standards of service. Ensuring that our staff is educated on the sourcing of our food has been a big priority of ours over the past few months especially due to the supply chain issues we have had. Our ability to consistently execute in the kitchen is pivotal in our success. Thanks, Rob

For Mexican Food well above the normal Mex or Tex/Mex restaurant Blue Agave is the perfect place to eat. Everyone in our party was impressed with the food and drinks. The manager and staff seemed to enjoy serving us and were very helpful in suggesting flavorful items. Table presentation was outstanding! 8 thumbs up!

We were originally told there was no room for our group. We walked out I opened this app and were given the option for a reservation 10 minutes later. The food was good. Things were a little spicier than expected, but good. The server was a little cold (guessing they figured out we were just in asking for a reservation and turned down), but provided good service. The hostess was not very pleasant.

This was my second time to Blue Agave. It was just as good as the first time. They are very open to making changes to the listed ingredients on the menu (for instance, they let me do grilled fish instead of fried for the tacos). The server was very sweet (drinks were slow getting to us, but a little grace is good for everyone with staffing shortages). Everyone in our party was very happy with the meal as we all cleaned our plates. Try the Mango Tacos and the Mojito Rita yummmm!

Ran out of scallops (6:30 dinner). Ran out of mashed potatoes (how can a restaurant run out of potatoes?). Brought "cooked" carrots instead. Couldn't cut them with the table knife.
Shrimp skewer was good; salmon was pretty dry. Shouldn't expect much from fish in Colorado.

Granted they appeared slammed, appetizers did not appear before main course so we told them to take the appetizers off the bill. Good margaritas, but was not able to order a second round until main course arrived. At least one dish was incorrect and was quickly replaced. Another dish seemed incorrect, but just settled to have food.
We were offered a voucher to come back, but explained we are not locals.

We made a reservation but still had to wait bc they were understaffed. Our food took almost an hour so we made our way through a few drinks before which took a while as well to get to us. For us, we understand service is slow with the pandemic but just wanted to let people know to expect to wait even with a reservation and that it will take a while for your food. They were also out of a few things we originally ordered so we had to reorder our sides once they brought our main out. Prob won’t go back since the food was sub par. Margaritas are bomb though lol.

Food was amazing and our server was great. We booked a reservation 1 week prior to our arrival and then were stuck in a bright (no ambiance) corner rarely used and were told they were overbooked. Unfortunate that their issue was turned in to our problem with no apologies. When food costs $30-$55 per main entree, guests should be treated with more respect for wanting to dine at an establishment.

The server was polite and personable, but we waited for drink refill and she walked past and we tried to wave. Was not very busy because of restrictions in seating.

We are so glad we had dinner here and definitely will return next time we visit Denver. Our Server was very friendly, knew the menu well and provided great service.
From drinks, appetizers and the meal- it was all delicious. Very good flavor combinations. The pumpkin espresso soup was amazing. I was skeptical but felt like trying something new. I was glad I did.
