    Had a great dinner here. I ordered the short rib and when I saw it, I realized it was not the type of thing I would normally eat. However, it rocked! The service was great, and the suggestions very good. They even had japanese beers on tap, awesome! One of the sushi plates my date ordered was done incorrectly, and they promptly fixed it and apologized. What more could I ask for.

    Ok - I should start by stating that I believe the Azie Roll is the very best sushi roll ever invented. Simply amazing and I could eat it forever. I've catered many events at their Villanova outpost and they cater very well. That being said, if Azie was located anywhere but Media, competition would harm them rapidly. Other than sushi, the menu is somewhat limited with rich ingredients without a lot of imagination. The bar in Media has slipped SIGNIFICANTLY. Bartenders are not terribly friendly, the drink menu is uninspired, and the bartenders lack creativity. Overall, I continue to hope for improvement, but they will see me back again, and again, and again for those Azie Rolls (and the rock shrimp which are terrific as well).

    If you're looking for an incredible culinary experience, order the Wagyu Beef. Because of the price, I certainly wouldn't order it on a regular basis, but everyone has to experience this taste sensation at least once in their life. Azie is the only restaurant in PA that serves it! My husband shared a few bites with me and it was worth every dollar. I was envious...and I had the surf and turf, so you can imagine how it tasted. If you order the 3 ounce minimum, I would suggest ordering the avocado salad (or another salad) to be served with it so you can slowly savor each bite. It's been 3 days, and I can't stop thinking about it!

    Although we have gone to brunch at Azie in Villanova, we never went the location of Azie in our own town. The trout special was excellent on Friday evening . It was a beautiful evening on the roof deck dining room. I look forward to returning soon.

    We can always count on a great meal at Azie. Standouts are shrimp tempura and sushi but we like to try new things and this is a great place to do that. The chef is outstanding and you can count on a great new creation every time. The new wine list is impressive but difficult for us as my husband does not drink wine and there are very few choices of wine by the glass and those are expensive. They did bring samples of two wines for me to try as they did not have the Pinot Gris by the glass. Overall we can always count on great food and we are never rushed.

    We have been to Azie in Media numerous times before and this was by far the best dining experience we've ever had there. The food was outstanding across the board and the service was polished, friendly and fun. My wife and I were celebrating a very special occasion (which we kind of just kept to ourselves) and it was as if they somehow knew to just make everything perfect that night. Cheers to the staff all-around for creating a truly memorable experience. Thank you!

    The food at Azie is always interesting and tasty as well as beautifully presented. The price point is perhaps a little steep. I would probably go more often if the prices were a bit lower. Then it would be a true neighborhood gem for me. The service was outstanding. The waitperson knew her wines and was comfortable making recommendations. Which led to the realization that there is an excellent selection of wines by the glass.

    We love Winn restaurants and have enjoyed previous meals at Azie. The service on this night was inattentive and inconsistent -- who was our server? Where did he go? Also, we felt that rather than truly informing us about the menu and listening to the kind of experience we wished to have, our server steered us to higher cost items that would yield a bigger tip. Yuck.

    This was the first time I dined at Azie on Media. I usually go to the Villanova location. The restaurant was clean, the staff was friendly and the food was better than Villanova. The only problem was that they ran out of Wagyu Beef, which we were looking forward to. Fabulous wine menu and interesting drink specialties. I look forward to going back. Next time, when the weather permits a walk down the beautiful main drag.

    It took a long time for the waiter to take our drink order. After 15 minutes went by he told us they were out on a drink ingredient. 10 minutes later we finally got our drinks. As we were ordering our meals he almost scolded us for not ordering appetizers. The food was awesome.

    We went on a slow Monday night where they had a tasting menu of $25. The Halibut was delicious, flakey and tender. The Azie Rolls had a deep taste and texture. Azie has a great modern pan-asian feel and the service was very good and accommodating, making several substitutions for the gluten and Lactose intolerant in our group of 6.

    I've been going to Azie for years however have not gone since summer of 2014. When I ate there last week, their sushi was not up to par & seemed not as high quality was previous vists. I wonder if they hired a new chef or not. I was very disappointed - especially with thier New Philly roll.

    We've had dinner here many times and the food is always great. The Chicken Lettuce Wrap starter was wonderful and the sushi was excellent. The only problem is the noise level and table arrangements in the dining room. Hard to get up and down from the table without disturbing other guests. It really detracts from the experience.

    We were at Azie on Friday evening 5/16/2014. We took clients who are moving locally from Beijing. We were place on the second floor right beside the atrium above the bar/entry area. Unfortunately, it was so noisy that conversation was all but impossible. I felt like I was in a bar or worse yet, a diner. The food is always excellent, and as I said, it is my favorite place to go. Sadly, for a lot of money, it was an uncomfortable evening.

    Azie is a great spot in town in Media where you can grab decent sushi and a good cocktail. The service is always good and I have never had anything there yet that I haven't liked. The only problem that I have come across is that there is no wall changing table in the bathroom where I could change my little ones diaper. That was frustrating because she needed to be changed so I did it right there where we were sitting. Luckily it was a quick and easy diaper change, but if it wasn't I would not have felt comfortable doing it at the table and I would have liked to have some privacy. Other than that I like the food and atmosphere, but will not be back with my family until they install a changing table.
