Nice OT option at the mall. Kind of fun eating in a supermarket. Food is good, service is good and it's a nice little break from the chaos of the mall. Would recommend for lunch and will be back.

Table was great and service was on point. Carne’ tacos were amazing, fresh guacamole, and hand made tortillas. The ARROZ A LA TUMBADA was sub par. Mushy rice, rubbery shrimp and the lobster seemed a bit off. Will definitely go back but will stay away from the seafood

The area around the host stand to the back right of the restaurant space where we sat was very “blah.” If we wanted privacy it would have been OK, but we felt removed from the “main” area of the restaurant. The food was just OK - passable but not special.

Little strange setup, having a restaurant in the back of a grocery store, but once inside it was back to a restaurant feel. Decent menu, including a kid’s menu. Guacamole was a good choice. Chips and salsa were good. Queso app a little disappointing, but rest of meal was good. Server was polite, attentive, and did a good job. Would go back.

We loved the service and the food was really good, the drinks were excellent and probably the only thing I'd return for. The price was just outrageous and you can see and hear that your inside a grocery store the whole time. The chips and salsa should be free and everything should cost 25% less, and if you want it to be a tequila bar it should be open later. We only went cause we had a $50 coupon and it's super convenient location.

Very hectic there on a Saturday night before 7:30. Check-in was confused. Despite the rocky start the food and table service were excellent as have been our prior experiences. The made to order guacamole (you see them making it at the front door) is a must have. Three of us has their version of paella which was excellent. Likewise the catch of the day was great. The wine list and deserts were commendable. Blue Dalia is a terrific addition to the MetroWest dining scene.

Our food was great and the hostess was wonderful making my reservation for a large group happen. however our server was very slow food took about an hour to come, server was slow with refills and not attentive at all. It took almost half an hour to get our bill all in all we were there for about 3 hours and it really shouldnt have taken so long. They messed up my friends meal also and they apologized however i feel they should have offered to comp something! was overpriced for the experience

Excellent margaritas and guacamole, the standard by which I measure all Mexican restaurants! The menu was both original and true to authentic Mexican flavors. The service was good and the decor is rustic elegance. We very much enjoyed our meal.

We really like this restaurant. Food is interesting and not what you usually get at a Mexican restaurant. Guacamole , margaritas and home made tortilla shells are exceeding along with the entire menu.

Another great meal! I had the paella, which was quite tasty with lots of seafood. My friend had beef enchiladas, which were also good. The waitperson brought the bottle of wine to the table and poured and refilled our glasses there. We weren’t rushed, and the wait person was very friendly and he,Paul, but not hovering.

I really have liked Blue Dahlia in the past. They have an interesting menu that isn't just the same Tex/Mex food you see elsewhere. We went to celebrate a friend's birthday. There were just 5 of us and the service was terrible. The waiter was pleasant and helpful, but the wait for food was ridiculous especially since the restaurant was not at all busy. The soup came with no spoons which usually are given before the food even arrives. Even a Coke took 10 minutes to arrive.

I guess they are probably struggling like many restaurants to get help, but we will not be rushing back. They didn't offer any reason why everything took so long.

Been over 10 times now and consistently great service and fresh, flavorful, crave-able food! Must try: guacamole, sopes with mushrooms (little masa boats served crispy with mushrooms and crema), pescado Yucatan (hits every note: spicy seared fish, creamy black beans, rice studded with crunchy veggies, sweet and caramelized plantains). Love that the kids meals feature freshly breaded organic chicken and crispy-like-fries green beans!

Very nice, attentive staff (a bit TOO attentive at times). Nicely decorated but noise from below store takes away from ambiance. Food and menu was only fair. The manager really cared about satisfaction, but I don't think I would go back. The prices are high for the food quality. Maybe they should turn this space into a more casual, fun Mexican dining experience and not try to make it so upscale.
