    Guacamole is from a package. Definitely not fresh. Very bland and the texture is blah. The chipotle lime chicken tacos were mediocre. Don’t eat here. No one raved over their orders (6 people). Had to ask twice for a side. Please go eat somewhere else.

    This location isn't as good as the one in Ft. Collins. That place is a 5 star experience. Wasn't expecting the construction that was going on. The margaritas were not as good as the location in Ft. Collins or the food.

    We selected this place for restaurant week. The menu looked good. They included chips and salsa as part of the 3 course meal. For the cost I was very disappointed the food was a bit bland and just okay. The service was less than desired and the construction going on on the 16th street mall makes it difficult to access. If you have someone with mobility issues this is not the place to go.

    We love coming to Blue Agave Grill because the drinks, especially the Margarita Swirl, and all the food is awesome. Service is great with helpful staff who make dining relaxing and fun. Cassidy, our bartender/server, was amazing with ability to move easily between the bar, our table as well as others, and keep everything going!

    Everything about this place was absolutely amazing!! Our server Keaunna, was very friendly, knowledgeable of menu items and checked on us frequently. Perfect service!! The food was AMAZING!! ~ I highly recommend the Signature Asada - so yummy and cooked perfectly Due to construction, this restaurant is a little tricky to get into but definitely go for it. No complaints. We also had the opportunity to meet the manager Christi, whom I would also like to give a shout out to!! Our evening and experience at this restaurant was perfect.

    They had a set menu that was not good. I ordered the lobster Mac n cheese and it came out with neon orange like they heated up some Kraft. Super runny, gross and a total disappointment. The chocolate peanut butter mousse was gritty and tasted off. I will not go back, which is sad because I heard their regular menu is pretty good.

    Well, the greeting and service we had from the moment we entered were superb. Our server Maddy, was exceptional, and one of the most pleasant servers we have had in years. Our drinks were outstanding (Blue Agave Margarita) , appetizer (Guac) and dinners of Blue corn enchiladas with chicken and pork carnitas were scrumptious. we will be making this a regular stop on our way in to Denver for our frequent visits. Thank you for having employees like Maddy to serve your guests!

    Food was not good. For $45 for a new years special the selection and food was horrible. The Enchilada was basically boiled baby shrip with a scoop of beans and my wifes had some odd flavorless cold green sauce on a warm dish. The guacamole had no flavor and we had to get a side of limes to add a little flavor. We had to ask the manager to turn the music down at 9pm as we couldn't hear each other at our table. Would not recommend to anyone. We flew into Denver for the evening and after cab and dinner it was $200 of wasted money.
