It was a rainy day and I was looking for a place close to Mayo Clinic to go for lunch. The decor was full of New Mexico charm not schlocky. Ashley was very easy yet attentive, all of the service personnel were polite. Since I couldn't decidefrom all of the menu offerings, the Cruz signature combo was perfect. I loved... More

We had reservations here on Margarita Monday (2-for-1 special that used to include all margaritas, but was only offered for a few different flavors when we were there). We went with 2 other couples and had a great time. They seated us promptly and our server was very efficient and friendly. The menu offered a nice selection of southwestern/mexican dishes.... More

We were disappointed in this place. Had hoped for a better experience from a place ranked top 60's out of over 1000 restaurants. Service was atrocious. Food was just ok.

I am so sad to hear about your less than satisfactory experience. Is there anyway you could provide me some additional detail? I would like to use your feedback for a training opportunity. And, if there is any way I can make this situation right, please email me at michael@blueadobegrille.com. Thank you! More

We r visiting family in Scottsdale from Oahu. We asked for the best southwestern food in town & they took us to Blue Adobe. The pork adovada was pure heaven & they had to pull us away from the extra special salsa.Great food, service & ambiance. MAHALO NUI LOA#

I loved my stuffed chicken , such a different preparation , spicy mashed potatoes and served with a beautiful amoretta sauce. We loved our meals but I think the music rated right up there. What a voice the guy... More

We have always eaten outside where is is so pleasant. They have live music some evenings. The salmon is the best seasoned I have ever had. Even a young grandchild loves it.

This restaurant was busy and had a singer!! But really loud !! I did not like the food. I thought it was just too commercial with no depth. Not even sure what that means but just a lot of fluff and did not taste good. I have been to Mexico City 10 times and this was not served there so... More
