“We recently celebrated my girlfriend’s birthday here at the Blue Agave. The staff was extremely accommodating, from helping to plan the surprise, decorating the table, and setting aside pre-ordered drinks and an entire three cheese Mexican cake accompanied by candles and a sombrero for my girlfriend to wear. Everything went extremely well and everyone at the party had a great time. Not to mention the food was excellent too. I highly recommend trying the Blue Agave for a future party.”

“I love this place. The portions are large and tasty. The menu is a wide variety between American, Mexican, and continental Spain.My suggestion is to go for happy hour and get one of their delicious margaritas or martinis for $5. They also do a great, and cheap, menu for HH too.”

Great Tequila variety which makes for awesome margaritas, the food is great. Good seafood incorporation into the menu as well! Chips and Salsa on the table are great!”

The best Mexican food in the area, hands down. Always great service, delicious drinks, and who can ignore the bottomless chips and 3 different kinds of salsa? It’s wonderful.”

“Stopped by at the perfect time.  It was a beautiful evening and they had room for us outside at the picnic table.  The wait staff were very  pleasant people.  I had an excellent margarita.  I mean it was delicious and made by hand.  No random mixes were used.  A good crafted cocktail.  Their guacamole is also fresh made per order.  Very fresh tasting and plenty to share.  I prefer sitting outside and seeing the city life, however,  the indoor seating is very nice too.”

“Omg! We went here for Valentine’s dinner. We got the wings and let me tell you I could have purchased more and that have been my meal just because they were that good. By far the best I have ever had! The salsas were really yummy too very fresh. I got the steak tacos which were good but those wings were the best!  Soooooo yummy. We are going to make this a date night place for now on. Their drinks are great too. But seriously get their wings…you won’t be disappointed.”

I absolutely love this place. It is such a fun place to go to for either dinner or just to the bar.

“I love to go to their tequila tasting nights. They have amazing happy hour specials and food and drink specials which is always good. They have a great dinner menu as well. The wife and I are always full when we leave.”

“Blue agave is by far the best Mexican joint in Federal Hill. Awesome bartenders, great atmosphere, and fantastic grub. I eat there at least once a week and it never fails me!! The steak tacos are really good and their house margarita hits the spot!! Love this place!”

“I LOVE Blue Agave. I love the food, drinks, atmosphere and people.  I live right in Federal Hill so I find myself craving Blue Agave pretty often.

I recently went to Blue Agave on a Friday evening with my roommate for a spontaneous dinner/happy hour. We sat at the bar and ended up ordering a flight of tequila. The bartending staff was so nice and actually stood there and spent time teaching us about all of the different types of tequila and the sangrita that is used as a palate refresher. I had never had sangrita before but thoroughly enjoyed it.  It’s almost like drinking a cold salsa or gazpacho.

Earlier this week I went to dinner with my boyfriend and had a new waitress as our server.  She couldn’t have been more sweet and attentive and eager to help. We’re a big fan of both the chicken and fried avocado tacos which came out in under 10 minutes.  I imbibed my go-to Skinny Rita (your typical skinny margarita) and enjoyed chips and salsa beforehand.

We’ve also had great experience with ordering carry-out. They’ve even accommodated my boyfriend and I when we’ve had that weird chips, salsa, guacamole and queso craving and put together literally just that—a huge serving of chips and dips for us to-go.

Also, my dad is a huge fan so it’s nice to have a place for “dad dates” when he’s in the area.”

I co-hosted a Bachelorette party here this weekend and have nothing but great things to say about Blue Agave! They were more than willing to accommodate our group of 18 ladies, and were able to get us a table on only 10 days notice (most other places we called had nothing available for our size or required that we order on a pre-fix menu). The service was great, atmosphere was  upbeat and fun and the food was delicious. This is definitely the place to go if you want a fun place with great food to dine with friends. We will be back!”

“Blue agave is a prime example of a restaurant done right. Everything on their menu is amazing, they have excellent lunch specials, and their margaritas are quite fantastic!”

“We went out on a Friday night and sat right down.  We were immediately offered the seasonal margarita – a fresh pressed apple maragarita with a cinnamon sugar rim – FANTASTIC!  We had chips and 3 different salsas which were all tasty.  I ordered the chicken special which was 2 huge chicken breasts in a brown sauce with poblano peppers and onions.  It was served with asparagus and jalepeno polenta – OLE!  It was so delicious! My friend had the enchiladas verde and loved them.

Overall a fantastic experience.  The restaurant manager came up and spoke with us for awhile and asked how everything was.  He explained how the chefs had been empowered under the new management to create more creative dishes and what a great job that they had been doing!  Everyone who frequents Fed Hill should go here!
