Diner Reviews
  • "Good spot hidden from the other restaurants in the area. Food was good"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Enjoyed their seafood tartare appetizer followed by their prized Peking Duck entree. Lovely wait staff, very attentive. Small restaurant w/ intimate feel. Dined on a Sunday evening and traffic was minimal."

  • "Have eaten at AZN several times in the past year and every time has been great. Staff are knowledgeable and the service is great. However the great treat is the food. Love all the Asian takes on some amazing fish recipes. Especially like the Snapper Oscar. On the app size, the Hawaiian Ahi Tuna Poki is killer. Brought friends there for their first visit and they promised to keep coming. We will keep going back as well."

  • "Excellent food, attentive service. One of our favorites!"

  • "I ordered the signature Chilean sea bass dish and the sauce on it was super sweet. I would have expected something that didn't cater to people's sweet tooth as an entrée. We also had Vietnamese spring rolls that were actually pretty bad - they did not taste fresh. The fried calamari was supposed to have also ben a signature dish, but they were way over-battered and were not that good. Again, I felt like they were something I'd get at a fried calabash-styled restaurant and not a high-priced venue. Perhaps when the area is completely developed out there will be more people there, but, although we were a little early, the place was very empty."

  • "A very good menu with lots of choices. I loved my dish, but my husband did not like the duck breast. It was also one of the top priced choices on the menu. It wasn't very interesting and didn't have any flavor or sauce to it. But the staff was so nice and took it back right away and brought us another dish. Service and atmosphere were both excellent and we would dine at AZN again."

  • "The food is good enough but not enough to make us want to go back. The atmosphere is a little cold and loud."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Great food! Great service! Chic ambience! But it's the food. We just love the homemade dumplings, the Wanchai Walnut Shrimp and the 7-flavor beef. Sooo delicious. Can't wait to go back"

  • "terrible service, but good food. The manager was very nice. The bartender literally NEVER came over and asked if we would like a drink while we waited for our table. She made eye contact with us and didnt say anything. They werent even busy. Besides the service the food was very good. All the fish was fresh. I loved the chicken lettuce wraps!!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The appearance was very upscale. It was Valentine's and it was slightly busy, but not overly busy. The Peach Mango Sangria was horrible with no peach or mango flavor. The food was nice. The best dish was the ribs. The service was very bad for that scale of restaurant. We had to keep asking for our items even though we were right in front of kitchen."

  • "My wife and I enjoyed our dinner on Valentine Day. We discovered this restaurant when we visited Naples Florida. We are glad that we now have it in Charlotte."

  • "Nice ambience, service was prompt, friendly. Food was good, not memorable, but good. Fried items were a bit oily."

  • "AZN is located in the vibrant Piedmont Center on Piedmont Row, with a nice patio for outdoor dining. We had a large group with a baby, and received excellent service! The staff is extremely friendly and accomodating. The restaurant is beautifully decorated, open and contemporary, with a great atmosphere. The food and drinks were delicious. We will return!"

  • "My boyfriend and I ate here for Valentine's Day. We thought it would be packed, but it wasn't. The service was excellent and they had a 3 course meal special for $30 each. The ambience and service was excellent, but the food was average! However they offer bottles of sake for $16. Try the coconut or silver."

  • "I took my girlfriend out for Valentines and had a great time. The food was excellent and our server was top notch. We had a reservation and was seated immediately. Great wine list and drink specials. Check this place out!"

  • "Third visit here. Not as good as before but still very good. Love the spicy edamame. Bartender made excellent cocktails. Service slow considering not busy,"
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Great service - super friendly server (Cody) - outstanding variety on menu - handled special requests (no peppers). All in all a very good experience - 4 people, 4 different meals, 4 very satisfied diners."

  • "This was our sixth trip to AZN and, if possible, they raised their game from our last time! Went with a business associate and his wife and everyone had seafood which was spectacular in every way. The Snapper Oscar, Blue Tuna and Sea Bass all got rave reviews from the group and our guests want to go back next month. As always, manager Steven was charming and kept an eye on us. Well done!"

  • "The Eggplant and Pad Thai dishes are now 2 of my favorite dishes. The service is great!"
    Dined on 1/29/2014
  • "This was our first time at AZN; we chose the three course restaurant week deal. I had the spicy shrimp with aoli and my husband had the ceviche; the shrimp was better by far. He had the duck and I had the sushi combo; again,mine was better. Overall it was good but not great; there are better Asian fusion restaurants in Charlotte. Maybe it was because they were busy but service seemed to be particularly slow; there was probably 10-20 minutes between when our drinks arrived and our order was taken. Improved, attentive service could elevate the experience a good bit."

  • "First time dining here.....was not sure what to expect but did not expect to find such a huge space inside? Nice bar area....do they really need big screens? Nice lady serving at the bar efficient,pleasant... Table we were given was a little small....when you are 4 people that want to try somethings to share it is difficult to work around such a small table space with glasses etc round tables were available. Waiter very nice but seemed a bit overwhelmed.. Food was just okay....my duck was quite nice but was not "crispy roast" as stated on the menu? The brown rice was inedible also. With the closure of Jo Jos China Bistro in Stonecrest maybe they will benefit from some new customers but was not what I had hoped for..."

  • "The geisha roll was delicious. Rice was the perfect consistency and flavor. The peking duck and honey walnut shrimp were also very tasty. I would dine here again."

  • "The best dinner I have had in a long time where all three courses was a hit!"
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "My first time to visit this restaurant so didn't know what to expect. My Sesame Chicken bento box was delicious! I'll definitely return!"
    Dined on 1/22/2014
  • "We went for the first time during Restaurant week. Food was deliciou. Ambiance was good. Kind of like an upscale PFChangs. I would skip dessert as it was nothing special but other than that we enjoyed ourselves. We will be back!"
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Maybe the night we were there was a complete fluke, but the service was non existent. We waited at the bar for 10 minutes to get a drink. Our reservation time was pushed back 20 minutes. It took another 10 minutes to try and pay the bar bill as the rest of our party sat at the table. 20 minutes before a server came over after we asked the hostess a couple times. We told the server, we understand something must be going on (short staffed etc) and that we wanted a round of drinks, to fire another round in 10 minutes, and one round of sushi. He complied, but they were out of crown royal so the first round of drinks came out after the food. No one ever came over to say, sorry we are such a wreck, etc."

  • "Dumplings were to die for! Cocktails were fun and intriguing. Server was well intended. Entrees had to be sent back, one drink never arrived. After we sent back the ribs I got the shrimp and the person I was with got the trout. Both of those were incredible. The desserts tasted like they came from a freezer in a nursing home. Just do not bother. The manager was attentive and took off a few items and gave us a BOGO for a return during lunch. She explained the bad food was due to the insane pace of restaurant week."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "We enjoyed a nice dinner during restaurant week. Dining off of the 3 course menu, we enjoyed the grilled pork dumpling appetizer, the duck and beef short rib entrees, and the creme brulet and chocalate moose cake desserts. Service was excellent."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "This place was a nice change to the normal Friday night dining experience. The food was good, but the dessert (chocolate mousse cake) was phenomenal."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "I m not crazy- nor am I a fan of mashed potatoes- n was very skeptical about my son getting a dish w mashed potatoes at a panasian restaurant- n was totally floored w the mashed potatoes! Very rich n sophisticated! We ordered four appetizers - all of them were good - but I wld say my favorite was the spicy, tangy, sweet Red Dragon shrimp -was plentiful- n the least favorite was the Vietnamese spring rolls. Mandalay crab Angeles were great as well. Dinner - I had the special surf n turf which came w a lobstertail which was just okay! The short rib that came w the mashed potatoes was awesome! My husbands Chilean sea bass was really good but the sauce was a lil too sweet. Yang chow fried rice n the Kung pao Lomien were great! I wld recommend"

  • "I was a hesitant given some bad reviews here on OpenTable, but this turned out to be a great meal. The Ceviche was cold, fresh, and a great way to start off the meal. My main course of Roasted Duck was tender, and gently seasoned. Honestly the best duck I've ever had. Dessert was Fried Cheesecake. Now it's hard to go wrong with fried anything, but the chef brought this dish up by using a quality cheescake that was fried correctly. Front of house did a good job. We were greeted by a lovely Asian lady and gentleman. They made us feel welcome. Our waiter seemed subdued but generally professional. He did allow my spouse's water glass go empty a couple times. The lady that removed our dishes had a great personality. We never felt rushed."

  • "This was our first visit to AZN and it was our 8th anniversary. Our waiter was knowledgeable about the menu and guided us to a couple of delicious choices. I had the roast duck, which was rich and well-prepared, and my wife had the walnut shrimp, which were also very good. AZN finished off our meal with a complimentary cheesecake dessert. All-in-all a very pleasant experience."

  • "Azn is a special treat for Charlotteans. Personnel were friendly, courteous and helpful in reviewing menu selections. Food was beautifully prepared. Black & Blue Tuna and Basil Flank Steak were delicious. Azn decor is modern, clean and inviting. Will definitely return as entire evening was a great nite out."

  • "AZN is a terrific place. Great atmosphere and bar. High ceilings and a lot of room. Very good menu and the food we ordered came out looking terrific. I just wish people could see it from the street. It's tucked away behind a few buildings which is never a good thing. I didn't know about it until I saw it on Open Table. It's too bad because the concept is fabulous. Anyone who decides to give it a try shouldn't be disappointed."

  • "Okay food, terrible service. Would check out other fusion restaurants in South Park before visiting AZN."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Food was good, decor was great but service was really slow. We waited at the bar for 20 minutes without even an acknowledgement from bar tender. Finally just went to our table. Service was very slow... they were plainly understaffed."

  • "Went for New Years. Had absolutely no service. Hostess was not available. I guess she was the busboy as well. Bartender was practically nonexistent. Said she was new and had to help the wait staff before the bar customers. Had to seat ourselves, get our own menus. Eventually left after fifteen minutes b/c not one person spoke, smiled, glanced in our direction. Very sad to have spent the early part of our night having to track down another restaurant that could serve us. Will not be back."

  • "I took my family to AZN for New Years Eve dinner. We arrived at 6:45 and were the first table seated in our section of the restaurant. They had a special New Years Eve menu, from which my wife and daughter ordered the Peking duck. I ordered sushi and my son ordered salmon. All of the dishes were excellent, and this would be a rave review, except for the fact that we had a waiter who 1. Took a drink order,never delivered it, but charged us for it, 2. Charged us for a dessert that was never ordered or delivered, 3. Let all of our waters go empty and never refilled them (we finally flagged down a different waiter and got more water) 4. Had to re-do our check 3 times before it was right. For the kind of $$ AZN charges, they need better help."

  • "Although impressive-looking on the menu, the food was similar to low-quality, carry-out Asian -- drenched in high-salt, high-sugar sauce. The service was very slow. The atmosphere was very nice, but not enough to make up for the poor quality of the food."
