Great food! Good portion sizes. Moderately priced. Fun indoor dining atmosphere. Good service, too.

This is such an intimate restaurant. I came here in a small group and we had made reservations. The food took a really long time to arrive, but when it came it was delicious. I had the steak tacos made with filet mingon and they were very tender. We ordered some a flourless chocolate cake off the menu. I am such a sucker for those.

I highly recommend Blue Agave. Went there on a Saturday night with my girlfriend during a short wknd visit to SB. The food was ecclectic and excellent and the atmosphere (we sat in the upstairs booths) was even better. We eat out a lot in both NYC and Los Angeles and we'll definitely try to go back to Blue Agave. The one potential negative that particular night was that it was so crowded (and perhaps understaffed) that our waitress was gone for relatively long stints at a time. So try and plan for a relatively long dinner and if you're not in a rush I think you'll be just fine with a slow waitstaff. By the way, we made reservations ahead of time for the upstairs area, I'd recommend doing so as well, it appeared there were lots of walk-ups looking for a table like ours, it's not a very large area upstairs.

usually, when the words "fancy" or "expensive" or "creative" and "mexican food" are paired together, a really bad idea results. but blue agave manages to create truly inspired cuisine using traditional mexican ingredients as a starting point. in addition, the restaurant is cozy, quiet, and a wonderful place to invest in a few bottles of wine.

Pros: food, ambience, service

Cons: it's not cheap, but that's not really a con

Probably one of the most romantic places in SB. The upstairs has a fireplace and couches and secluded booths (though those are just for the dinner patrons.) Drinks can be pricey, but you're also paying for the atmosphere.

This place is amazing. The bar has a really fun vibe to it, the artwork and location is absolutely amazing and the food is incredible. This place is a perfect place to have a drink before an event...a fantastic place for dinner or just great for nightcap...

Make sure to say hi to the owner, who is also the chef, and artist whose work is featured throughout the restaurant as well, he's a great guy!

For a date, try to reserve one of the booths upstairs...they are great for an intimate evening.

This Santa Barbara establishment is known for its trendy yet comfortable vibe, outdoor cigar lounge and plenty of premium tequila. The two-story room is well suited to romantic dinners. Cuddle up in a cozy booth or on the overstuffed couch…
