Perfect taste of the southwest – The menu changes a bit by season, so you get what is fresh. Ingredients are mostly southwestern- buffalo, blue corn, jalapeno.
The atmosphere is very Southwestern/Spanish with rich colors, neat pottery, etc.
The blue corn and the jalapeno cheese biscuits are very tasty- blue corn has a slightly different taste, a bit sweet and nutty.
I tried the buffalo with truffle sauce and it was very moist and melt-in-your mouth and not too game-y. I also tried the porkchop with tamarind sauce, and a truffle-pork tamale which was authentic tasting. The pork was way too salty- only problem I've ever had at BlueSage, so I let the chef know and he gave us a free dessert.
We had some creme brulee in a chocolate tart and it was truly gourmet. It comes with raspberry sauce but I wanteed to be exotic and asked for mango coulis instead and wow! Delicious!
The prickly pear margaritas are a MUST, prickly pear is a sweet-tart taste that is a must try and very "Arizona". Probably the best margarita I've ever had.
The chips and salsa were good, the salsa was very mild- I'm a spicey type myself, but what lacked in spice did not lack in flavor- it was not dissapointing- instead quite addictive! The tomatoes must have been roasted as it had a slight smokey flavor.
