    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.

    Great food selection, beautifully laid out and delicious. Wonderful ambience. Only downside, aside from being somewhat pricey, was that coffee and orange juice were not included and were a la carte, which was surprising and added significantly to the basic brunch charge.

    Mother's Day brunch was advertised on OpenTable at a good price ($29), so I made the reservation. Two days before, I got an email stating the price was wrong (and of course much higher). Too late to make a reservation anywhere else, and management didn't respond to my voicemail asking to honor the original price. Food was okay but the experience left a bitter taste in my mouth. Reserver beware.

    We went to Azie on Main for the first time for Mother's Day brunch. The service was not unfriendly but waiter had to be asked twice by one companion for a cup of coffee and never returned to ask if we might have wanted a refill. At $3 a cup (nothing was included in the bunch...even the OJ was extra. If any beverage was included, we were NEVER informed of it so I am not sure what the $40/person brunch included or didn't include. We will NOT return to Azie on Main; the experience left me cold, unsatisfied and $186 lighter (total price for 4 adults with no drinks other than 1-OJ, 1-tomato juice and 3-coffees + tip). Not such a great way to start Mother's Day.

    The host and wait staff were most accommodating. We were a senior citizen group of 6 and appreciated that they suggested that we sit in a small room off of-the front entrance. It did not have the ambiance of the main restaurant, however, the service was excellent and we were able to converse with no problem. This resulted in a most pleasant evening. The food was excellent and our server, Min, was most helpful. He also chased after us as we left to inform us that the gratuity had already been added to the bill and he would cancel our added gratuity. We will certainly return soon.

    I have dined at this restaurant several times and always a different result. We do enjoy the food and variety. However, this past visit was for a special occasion birthday and started badly and stayed that way. We checked in on time and it was not busy. I said i had a reservation, but the hostess just distractedly walked away with menus and motioned us to follow. Since it wasn't busy she didn't check the name or greet us nicely OR NOTICE THE COMMENT ABOUT OUR DAUGHTERS BIRTHDAY. After that, it got busier and the service was simply the worst we had encountered and no apologies other than it was a nice evening and more guest than expected were there. I even had difficulty getting the check and leaving. sorry to vent.

    We were a party of four. I have been before but our friends had not. Our food was excellent. It was a Monday night so not too crowded. We were seated in a booth in the bar area and initially it was pretty quiet. A long table was set for a large party and they drifted in. It was apparently a wine pairing dinner and they was a bit loud and the wines were announced and a short history given. It was a bit disturbing . Obviously the host knew they were coming and it was a slow night so I wonder why he would seat us so close to a big party. Our waitress was efficient but not very friendly. That said, the food is very good and I would return but with request for specific seating.

    I loved the brunch at Azie on Easter. The filet mignon, shrimp, and sushi were loved by all. I loved that it wasn't loud and crazy like other places I have gone to for brunch on Easter. I felt that the quality of the food was also much better than other places I have gone on holidays. It was more expensive but my husband and I enjoyed it much more and will just curtail our eating out the rest of this month to balance it out. Would definitely go again!
