    My two sisters and I ate lunch at Azie recently and we were all satisfied with our lunches. One had the Kobe burger and said it was delicious and the other had the shrimp tempura sandwich and liked it very much. I had the miso soup which was ok and shrimp tempura with the mustard sauce, which was great, but there were only 2 shrimp. I was still hungry so I munched on my sister's truffle french fries which were out of this world. We split the wonderful banana bread pudding for dessert. The waitstaff was very friendly, efficient and let us sit there for a long time!

    Love the ambiance and the food is very good, but the kitchen is slow. Its not terrible as the atmosphere is conducive to talking and relaxing. The last visit we waited for more than an hour for our meal and that is not acceptable. Better this time but not as it should be. People serving the meals seem not comfortable and sure of themselves. Our waiter Jose was very professional, however. Media's closest thing to Philly dining.

    The food is terrific. The noise level upstairs, however, is unacceptable. It's impossible to hold a conversation without raising your voice, and, even then, hearing what your dinner guests have to say is a chore. We moved to the bar area, which, surprisingly, is much quieter. The service was a little slow - not the usual great service we have experienced in the past.

    Dined on 10/13/2014
    This was my first time at Azie. They did have wine flights for $15 for restaurant week which were good sized pours and tasty. I would definitely recommend taking advantage of that. We ordered the Kobe beef appetizer which is over priced and underwhelming at $18. It came out with five very thin and very small pieces of beef to cook on the sizzling rocks. The presentation was fun and the food was good, but neither the size of the appetizer nor the quality merits a $18 price tag. For dinner I tried the NY strip steak. This was an average cut of meat with a good sauce and some blue cheese on top. My boyfriend did rave about the surf and turf and at $34, I would say that it was pretty standard. Service was good, but extremely slow.

    We went on a Tuesday night and ordered from the fixed price menu. While the food was very good, the entree and desert portions were quite small. Had I known that the portions were essentially Tapas size, I would have ordered off of the regular menu.

    Our family of four enjoyed a delicious meal at Azie. It was our first visit here and such a treat. Azie also provides menus with gluten-free and Vegan selections. A big plus for us. Ashley, our server, was very attentive as were the other wait staff. Meals were creative, tasty and artistically presented. We will definitely return on our next visit to Media.

    Starting with an amazing happy hour - awesome cocktails & delicious appetizers at half price, we graduated to a lovely dinner. The menu includes a variety of dishes leaning towards Japanese (delicious toro, maki sushi,tempura, teriyaki,) with with emphasis on seafood (miso cod, sea bass, lobster) There is a prix fixe for $25. The wine list was well-chosen, we had a spanish Rioja that was lovely. Desserts were intriguing, the chocolate cake with berries & mint ice cream was yummy. Will be returning very soon!

    My only complaint was that the tables were too packed together. The service was excellent and the food very good. It was very tough to make a decision on what to get because everything looked and sounded good! They even had a gluten free menu, though if they just use gluten free soy sauce they would have many many more options on it. Yummy cocktails!

    We had been to Azie once before and while we loved the sushi, the noise level was too high for us. However, last Thursday evening we were seated outside on their rooftop dining area and it was a perfect evening! The sushi was even better than we remembered and we could hear one another talk. The wine list was extensive, too. Never felt rushed to leave.

    Food & sangria were excellent. Enjoyed apps & entrees and chocolate w/ fruit dessert. The crepe dessert tried too hard to be creative and seemed to have too many competing flavors to be cohesive, the orange sauce was powerfully sweet. Lovely company. Service was slow, waited almost 1 hour for entrees and at least 1 hour for dessert. Although it was dining under the stars, our later reservation (19:30) and the empty 2nd floor of restaurant made it curious that the wait for food was a bit longer than would be typical. Would recommend on a not busy night.

    I made reservations for the rooftop and even though it was a summer night, the table was shaded and our server was extremely attentive and charming. I highly recommend the fresh Sangria and I was pleasantly surprised by the delicious FREE birthday dessert! Azie is one of my favorite places to dine.

    Azie seems to cater to a very eclectic crowd. Their motif is very nice and the expansive windows give a great hustling street view. Looks like a great place for happy hour. But the brunch is just okay for the price. For 2 brunches w/ a mimosa each (incl 20% tip) it was $30/pp. I do like the lunch style offerings w/ salmon ceviche and mahi. My custom spinach/cheese omelet was uncooked inside. I skipped the breakfast meats because they appeared extremely greasy. I think I would like to try dinner there and give it a second chance.

    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!

    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.
