Great service, happy hour and the food is delicious!!
Made a reservation for restaurant week, specifically chose a restaurant with a patio due to COVID concerns and when we arrived they did not have a server for the patio and thus it was "closed". This was such a disappointment, it was the main reason I chose that restaurant. indoor they did have appropriate social distancing but I felt "tricked" by the false advertising of patio seating. Won't be back, food was just ok.
Waiting staff were very courteous. But more importantly, OMG that food was SO delicious!
Excellent customer service! Delicious food, and huge portions.
This was our first time to visit and my wife and I shared the Ultimate Chimichanga. I can say that I have eaten a lot of chimichangas in my life but none better than the Ultimate Chimi at Blue Agave.
The service was great and our waiter was very friendly checking with us often to ensure we were satisfied.
Blue Agave is THE best place for taco Tuesday!! Yummy tacos, great value, and the happy hour margaritas are delicious!
This is THE Best place for taco Tuesday. Excellent tacos and great happy hour margaritas!
Blue Agave never disappoints! Yummy food in a casual, comfortable environment. So glad they're continuing to turn out excellent quality, even while dealing with Covid restrictions.
What a pleasant surprise! Food and service outstanding. Sanitizer on every table. Following all the guidelines. Will definitely return to try more dishes.
Wonderful food and frieny service ! We were t offered the high top table requested but had a nice regular table. Ishmael was our server he was very nice- pretty busy though. We waited a bit for our main courses but they were worth the wait: fantastic. Food as usual! Loved their tequila scented hand sanitizer on each table 😎
Always great service and great prices - love taco a Tuesday!
Wanted to eat out before all Phoenix restaurants closed. A delicious light meal eaten outside on a nice patio.
We came to this restaurant visiting from Alaska hoping for a fresh approach to Mexican food. This place was not my style of Mexican food-I prefer a fresher approach. My kids received Kraft mac and cheese and a plastic container of canned fruit for the kids meals-I could do better staying home. An ok place to go, but there are fresher options out there.
We had a very nice time and the food was great!
We wanted to try this restaurant after hearing a recommendation from a friend. The restaurant has daily specials, as well as a wide variety of food choices. Our food was good, and our waiter was attentive, when we saw him. The problem was that he was waiting on many tables at this time, and definitely needed help. We will go back and try other menu items.
The server was the highlight. He was excellent. The food was also delicious and my special dietary requests were accommodated. Nice experience.
We live on the other side of town when we decided to try Blue Agave. It was worth the drive. I have new place to bring my out state guest. The food was tremendous and the service was great.
We had a great server and loved our meals. I had the Jefe Pollo which is one of their special dishes - highly recommend!
Side portion of quac very small. Marguerita was nice size and quality- just a bit tart. Beer was good for price. Split the fajitas. Ample for 2 people. Chicken was delicious.
Very delicious Mexican food. We have eaten here several times and food and service is consistently good.
While visiting the Scottsdale area we decided to try Blue Agave which I found on OT. It was extremely busy when we arrived and I could see the hostess was helping to clear & set tables. We went to the bar area to wait as we were early for our reservation. There were a few hightop tables open so we asked the bartender if they were available & they were! :) I caught the hostess's attention to let her know we decided to eat in the bar. Complimentary chips & salsa were good, and we ordered the housemade guac which was also good! My classic margarita hit the spot, but I was surprised they didn't serve it in a margarita glass. My husband had Corona, can't go wrong with that. Our meals were served quickly and they were very good. Prices were reasonable & service overall was good! There are higher quality & better places out there but this place is great for a decent & casual meal!
Our family ate here on New Years Eve, Absolutely delicious! Nice waitstaff, great service; food arrived as ordered, quickly comfortable & clean. We will definitely dine here again! Thanks!
Great service and great food.
Food was good. It didn’t seem very busy but we waited 45 minutes between placing our order and receiving our food.
We come here every time we come to Scottsdale!
Based on our most recent experience, absolutely not. The service was terrible and the food marginal. My wife and I travel to Scottsdale several times a year and make sure we go to Blue Agave at least once every trip. On future visits we will think twice about going back. We even had a local couple with us and they could not believe how bad the service and food were. Bottom line, Blue Agave was always at the top of our list, now it is probably not on the list. Hopefully things improve.
Hi Rick, I am very sorry to hear about you experience a while back. I assure you that what happened that night has been addressed and fixed. We pride our selves on great food and a great customer experience. I appreciate your feed back and hopefully see you back in the future. Thanks Brian Johnson
Good food and good prices and wait staff were great!
Outstanding service and food
Consistently good food. Love the chimichanga's! Fish tacos are also excellent.
Very interesting menu choices and what we ordered was excellent. The meat was savory and spices were fine. Drinks were well made. Service was excellent. Nicer than we expected on a Wed. night.
The food was amazing and the service was great!!!
We had an early lunch (11:00 am) so only two tables of customers ours and 1 other. The food took over 35 minutes, came out luke warm, no check back 10 minutes after the meal was served, had to flag the waiter down to get a check. 1st time was great this time bad, I think we'll try a different place next time.
We sat at the bar for Taco Tuesday and had great service from the women behind the bar. Looking forward to going back!
Overall, was enjoyable, but server seemed in a rush for us to order. We ordered drinks right away but they didn’t come until after the meals arrived. Food was very good, but just felt rushed. Would have liked to enjoyed the drinks and then the meal.
We dined on a Tuesday at 5:30 pm; the restaurant (while small in square footage) was booked, our waiter had tables all over the restaurant, not a specific section. This caused the long time to get drinks, chips/salsa, and then 1 person got their good about 10 minutes the second person received their meal. There was no manager around to see what the issue was. The food was just okay, nothing to write home about. I would not recommend this restaurant.
The waiter was good. We both got stomach aches. My wife could not eat shrimp salad. I tried but shrimp not good. Dressing not good
Great service. Andre is the best. Wonderful fish tacos.
We stumbled upon this restaurant while looking for Mexican food in Scottsdale. The chips were fresh baked and light, the sals was just enough spice, the fajitas were expertly prepared, and the enchiladas were oozing with cheese and other stuffings. If this was not in a strip mall with limited ambiance, and if they offered mole sauce, it would be 5 star.
