Eager to walk after a day inside because of a conference, Federal Hill was an easy stroll from our hotel. On the recommendation from the staff at our hotel, we went to Blue Agave. While we loved the margaritas, the food disappointed. It was heavy--both in sauces and in weight. The atmosphere was lively and there were lots of locals... More

Very nice ambience, great food (had a vegetarian burrito), good value. Also very good service. Slightly less impressed by the margarita, which tasted a bit too much tequila for my taste.

The Blue Agave is my very favorite Mexican restaurant. So much better than any chain Mexican can even come close to! We drive half an hour from outside the city to eat here as often as we can, which is usually for special occasions. They have many authentic dishes on the menu, including chicken mole and ceviche, and they always... More

First time here and it was delicious! Usually Don Pablo's is my go to but I'm glad to have another spot! They have complimentary chips and 3 different types of salsa they give to each table while you cruise the menu. Cocktail menu had a pretty great selection and the menu itself had a lot of options! My taco salad... More

The meal was fine with excellent service from our waitress. I would agree with the other reviews that the prices were a bit high, but we ordered our burritos with a significant discount because they were the special for the night. On the other hand, happy hour prices for beer were available only at the bar. I don't have any... More

Typical Mexican fare but way outlandish prices; also seemed a college hangout. Not sure what else to say.

This place has a fun vibe and is great for a drink or two. The food was ok. (If it comes out) We waited over an hour for two taco's and some Mac & Cheese. The tacos were ok but for $16 for two it was a bit outrageous. The Chorizo mac and cheese is an appetizer and is pretty... More

We went for Tacos on Monday Night (4 dollars off Tacos and kids eat free), and we were underwhelmed. The tacos were a little dry, ordinary-tasting, and small, which was disappointing because we had ordered their their specialty tacos: the Tacos Al Pastor and the Rope Vieja Tacos. The specialty tacos only came with two tacos ($15.99 regular price), and... More

The Concierge at the ROYAL SONESTA hotel recommended this eatery in the Federal Hill neighborhood. The trendy, upbeat ambience was inspiring, but not eardrum-fracturing noisy. I returned a tortilla soup that was too spicy, and our server was more than cordial to exchange it out at no cost for a wonderful black bean soup. The margaritas ... well, as good... More

We had a family brunch before the O's game. It was solid. The food was all good and the options for kids was also good. Decent options for GF people also. Service was pretty average. I think the waitress was done for the day and was watching the ravens game. Honestly there is a ton of average Mexican food out... More
