    We love the Happy Hour menu and have never had a bad experience at Blue Agave. The servers are friendly and genuine. Our bartender, Kiana had our table and was able to visit with us since they weren't busy yet. She was sincere and informative. We keep coming back for the great service, the street tacos and the Sangria Swirl Margaritas. It was a great visit as usual!

    We waited over an hour for our appetizer and meal. Since food was late, appetizers were on the house. It was very busy but we didn’t have silverware on our table, no water, basically ignored for 1 hour. When food came it was with the soups we had ordered as an appetizer. The pumpkin soup was outstanding, the chicken tacos were just fair and cold!

    Really enjoyed a date night dinner at Blue Agave. I had the grilled salmon which was very tasty and good portion. Hubby had Coconut Shrimp tacos and he enjoyed them also. Service was a little slow, but in this day and age not unexpected.

    The restaurant was moderately busy and the staff was polite, courteous, and responsive. The problem was the food. Ordered a burger and fries with spinach and mozzarella. The mozzarella was a disgustingly large slab of deep fried cheese. So i removed it. Not a problem. I ordered the burger medium to be safe and it was rare as in raw on the inside. So I returned it. Which I have NEVER done before. As in ever. The waitress was attentive and brought back another burger 10 m later, exactly the same. I refused it and left the restaurant hungry. What is wrong here?

    Our server was very pleasant and the restaurant itself was nice. Food and drink left a lot to be desired. Ordered the jalapeño Margarita. Expected a nice jalapeño spicy Margarita, this one is so hot, not spicy, so hot it set your lips on fire. The El Capitan Margarita they replaced it with was very nice. We ordered appetizers that took forever to arrive, when they did, the entree arrived within a minute after. By the time we finished the appetizers, the entrees were cold. We ordered teriyaki salmon and top shelf enchiladas. The salmon was over cooked and the top shelf enchilada that are to include shrimp and lobster were generously filled with popcorn shrimp, the lobster, wasn’t found. Overall, not the worst experience but not one I would recommend.

    Based on the reviews we were excited to try Blue Agave Grill. Our experience was disappointing to say the least. The service was horrible and the over-priced food was mediocre at best. From the time we sat down until our food was served was 1hr 45min. We will not be back and would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    Happy hour is great and food was delicious. Salmon and tuna salad was awesome. Quick delivery but not many servers, they charged us for the extra salsa, chips could be fresher, guacamole is a very small serving and lots of mayo. Good value for happy hour but extra charges including kitchen staff charge.

    We had a noisy table next to us, so it was difficult to have a conversation. The waiter was busy - maybe they were short-staffed - so he didn't come by as much as we would have liked. The food was good, but not outstanding.

    It was mediocre. My friend ordered these nachos with melted cheese and shrimp on them but the cheese was semi hard and room temp by time they reached out table. My partner who’s birthday we went for had a salad with burnt ends of a salad and the pieces of meat were huge squares. Missed opportunity on presentation. I had the “marinated” carnitas with beans in the tiny tostada bowl and it honestly tasted fried. The meat on my plate was also huge blocks, missing opportunity to have a better presentation on my dish. Oh yeah there was this cheesy plate with a few tostada strip chips assuming for my friends other dish which was the marinated pieces of tuna with avocado and jicama. The plate with designed sriracha and some other green sauce was unnecessary. It was trying too much. Also, the waitress said she would be “helping US today”. Is that like a woke gender neutral thing waiters say now? We are all guys at the table. She could’ve said “I’ll be helping you guys”
