great drinks but crappy food – maybe the best beverage service in town! However don't eat there. The chef aims high but misses by miles.
Shame on You! – Blue Agave is one of the best Mexican restaurants I have ever experienced. The food at Blue Agave is as authentic as it gets this side of the border. Have you tried the duck dish, or the Carnitas? The Carnitas is just like in Mexico, which I have visited many times. Margaritas are as fresh as they promise. No mixes, no blenders... Like the bartender explained in my 20 minute tequila "class", all the margaitas are made with real lime juice, a high end version of Cointreau, and premium tequila. Any questions I have had have been quickly and knowledgeably addressed by the bartenders or servers, which both provide great service unlike may other Baltimore eateries. So I'm not sure where the negative comments are coming from, but being a loyal customer, I felt I should address the situation. Please don't let another great Baltimore restaurant slip away!
Worst Food Ever – I have been to Blue Agave twice - once because I didn't know better, and once because I was convinced I should give it a second chance. Both times my meals were absolutely awful, verging on unedible (both chicken dishes). Everything is dry and flavorless and the presentation is painful. I absolutely will never go again, unless it is for drinks - the sangria was very good.
Sometimes amazing, sometimes awful – i love 4 things at blue agave, the sea bass, the burritos, the carnitas, and the margaritas. everything else i've tried was not merely dissappointing, but bad. the most recent waste of money were the fish tacos (dry and no flavor) and the lamb colorado (mutton flavor). service is reliably so-so. all this said, i keep going back for the 4 things i love...
Dynamite night out – The experience at Blue Agave is awesome. Excellent service starts the experience. The margaritas have no competition. Fine mexican cuisine served with flair is a joy to the taste. With over 100 tequilias, the fun goes on and on.
Still the best...hands down! – Traveling is part of my everyday life...and so is eating. I've experienced great Mexican food in Chicago, New York, L.A. and San Fran, but I am always happy to return home and have the best.
Blue Agave has never let me down. I have entertained for business, had a few dates and just dined with the girls. Margaritas are unmatched, empanadas are my fav and the lamb colorado is as authentic as it gets. Baltimore still has some food holes to fill, but gourmet Mexican is taken care of at Blue Agave. They've raised the bar on food in general!!!
Authentic Mexican – One of the most creative and consistently original restaurants I have ever been to. The food is both flavorful and beautifully presented. The margaritas are absolutely just like in Mexico with fresh lime juice and silver tequila. Even traditional Mexican dishes are so elegently prepared, you feel like its the first time eating them. There are very few restaurants which I repeatedly go to and Blue Agave is absolutely one of them.
BEST RESTAURANT IN BALTIMORE HANDS DOWN – Blue Agave goes above and beyond any other restaurant in Baltimore. The margaritas are better than anything I have had ANYWHERE. And the food is to die for. Everything has such wonderful flavors and unique presentation. It's the perfect restaurant for either a date, special occasion, or large group - I have been there for all of them. When you go here, you will want to try a little of everything. I recommend the guacamole, anything with the delicious chicken, MARGARITAS (especially pomegranate), and fried ice cream for dessert if you can handle it. DELICIOUS. Worth the price. And the atmosphere is cozy and fun. Make sure you have reservations.
A change in atmosphere on Saturdays... – On a recent visit, it became evident the bar has become a staging area for young adults heading out later to the local Federal Hill hot spots. On Saturdays, one can no longer be assured of great Mexican food, with the corresponding atmosphere, one had previously associated with this establishment.
Where to find the best "mole" in town – Blue Agave is one of the best mexican (authentic) restaurants that I have visited in the United States...this coming from a Mexican! The ambience is just right for a night out with friends, a casual dinner or a romantic outing. The service is wonderful, everyone is very friendly. Food is the best part of Blue Agave! Elegant avant garde authentic mexican treats. What amazed me the most is the different kinds of "mole" (a mexican sauce made of chocolate, spices and peppers, which is added to chicken, enchiladas or other dishes)...most restaurants in Mexico don´t have that big spectrum of types of mole. Drinks and desserts are varied and excellent. Great variety of coffees...as little mexican coffee shops have...kalhua, irish cream, amaretto and other types of liquors enrich the different beverages. Definitely the mexican restaurant to visit when in Baltimore.
