    I had heard good things, and was looking forward to our visit. We were seated in a booth, which was comfortable and cozy. We ordered the crunchy spicy tuna roll, which was awesome, chicken noodle soup, and a perfectly cooked miso sea bass. J enjoyed his seared tuna over mashed sweet potatoes. The service was pleasant, and not over solicitous. We will definitely be returning!

    Azie service and food is slowly going downhill. We were there 10/7 to celebrate our son's birthday. Although we didn't stay for dessert, our server, Danielle, didn't even bring out a lit candle in a sushi roll. We're pretty much family regulars and have noticed many new faces and worse service of late. The Rock Shrimp, usually so tasty, was soggy and the sauce not as delicious as usual. My 13 year old noted the new absence of the endive which seems to now be with the orchid flower that USED to garnish this dish. We miss both very much and hope they bring them back and return to their old shrimp recipe. Everything else was "okay". Of Note: Our favorite manager,Ann, was not working that evening-might this have something to do with it

    We have eaten here several times. The food is consistently wonderful. Presentation is excellent and the ways the different flavors are fused makes up an amazing menu. Staff is well trained and knowledgable. The only thing that was a drawback this time was that we were seated alone in the main dining area on a slower night, because we had a larger party. The rest of the diners were in the bar area. It seemed like the waiter forgot about us several times while he was waiting on his other tables and couldn't see us. We had several long pauses between courses so that we were there over two hours. This wouldn't be a problem with a fine fining experience except, having fined here before, I know they are much more attentive.

    Lovely service, bar, interior and outdoor seating but for some reason I was disappointed this time. I always get the same thing- crab pad thai and for some reason was not crazy about the dish this time. Just sort of flavorless. Lacked the vibrance it usually has. Had to jazz it up myself with lime and sriracha. Outdoor area was lovely but seemed to be not enough servers - at least ours was rather hard to come by while inside looked deserted so had too much wait staff. Just sort of a weird night over all.

    I'm not sure what happened. I've never been a huge fan of the restaurant, but the nail was put in the coffin Friday night. Service was extremely slow (the couple seated next to us left after waiting 25 minutes for water),after getting my entrée 65 mins after ordering, it was cold. Manager took my meal off the bill, but still, really bad all around experience. The table behind us never received food the birthday celebrant asked for.The maitre d' didn't pull my chair out, just dropped the menus on the table and left, the table on the other side of us wobbled, and when the couple pointed out the problem to the waiter, he just shook the table and walked away. For a meal that would have cost over $85 for 2 people, it was very disappointing.

    The restaurant was mostly empty so there was zero atmosphere, our server had an odd demeanor about him and made us feel uncomfortable, the food was mediocre; overall it was terrible for a date night, a waste of time and money. Disappointing because the restaurant decor was beautiful but they simply weren't able to fill it up with people.

    I think Azie on Main is a really great place! Love the atmosphere! It's just a shame that such a nice place is tucked back into a small shopping center with no visibility. It reminds me of a trendy restaurant that you would see downtown in Center City with it's atmosphere and Asian flare. I really enjoy the food and would definitely go back again, I just wish it was a bit more lively as a friend I dined on a Thursday evening and the place was pretty much dead, and being in a college town I would have expected it to be packed, but again I think the location has a lot to do with it. The first time I went it seemed pretty crowded but I think some kind of event was going on. I think they just need to publicize and get the word out more.

    I had heard many good things about Azie. It was odd.....some dishes were delicious....others were so-so. The oddest thing was that we were served entrees while we were still eating appetizers....The waitstaff just pushed our appetizer plates aside while we were still eating them and put the entrees down in front of us. We were surrounded by a 'feast' of dishes.....and no where to eat comfortably. It was poor pacing of service which made the dinner odd. We were disappointed.

    I've been to brunch at Azie before, but was pleasantly surprised to find they also have a patio for seating! My friends and I happily sat outside and enjoyed the nice weather. They also added an omelet bar at the buffet, and they'll cook it right in front of you! Best omelet I've ever had. Once again, Azie was wonderful!

    In spite of living pretty far away, I have been to Azie on Main 5 or 6 times this year. Lunch is especially appealing with a fixed price menu. Their special sushi rolls are creative as is the rest of the menu. All of this comes with a somewhat-higher-than-average price, but it is worth it.

    I have eaten at Azie for brunch several times and it is always exceptional. I love that it is different than other brunch menus as well. The only thing that needs a bit of improving is the service for coffee and tea and any other drinks. It seems they often have too few waiters on staff to serve each table timely.

    The food and atmosphere is and has always been great. But the service is terrible. I was with a group of 6 for dinner. Our table was broken. Not just wobbly, BROKEN. One of us had to lean on the table so the others could eat without having their plates or drinks fall in them. When we complained and requested a new table we were told they were busy, and could not move us. We hardly saw our waitress throughout the Evening. I fact they only time we say her was when we ordered out food. Out appetizers came out with out entrees and the waitress said "My bad" I though that's how you wanted them. Then she had the nerve to automatically add a 20% tip to our check. Unbelievable. Will maybe think twice about returning.

    This is one of my top places to dine after a long day at work. Service is always exceptional. I enjoy the indoor and outside seating. I'm extremely excited about the new bar added outside. (Discovered that when I dined here last Friday.) Some of my favorites are the miso broiled sea bass *drool*, the calamari or calamari salad, teriyaki salmon, and shrimp tempura. I would list all of the sushi and sashimi I like but I may as well cut and past the entire menu here. Everything is so fresh and flavorful. The drinks are always just right.
