    Every dish was less than perfect. Bronzino was overbooked and server didn't bone it well. Cooked Grouper was served on top of cold potato salad- a warm accompaniment would have been much better. Raw Oyster appetizer should have been icy cold but was warm. The atmosphere was lovely; wish the food was as good!

    Azur is a Gem. The restaurant is situated in a house on a quiet street. The wait staff was spot on, friendly, attentive and informative. The food was perfect! Each dish filled with finely prepared with just the right amount of spice and flavor. The Gravlox and potato croquettes were out of this world as was the octopus. The salad and goat cheese was fabulous. For main dishes we had mushroom gnoochi, a chicken dish and I never order chicken....I will dream about this chicken, and lamb which was stellar! Just go here!

    We saved this restaurant for a night out without the children. It is very intimate with indoor and outdoor dining. Dinner did not disappoint. The staff was prompt, friendly and knowledgeable - we did not wait for anything. All suggestions were perfect. We started with the Pulpo (char-grilled octopus) and it was delicious. The lamb was very good and the Osso Bucco was amazingly tender and mouth watering. We will be back - what a wonderful experience.

    We always enjoy dining at Azur. The food and service are always excellent and at a reasonable price. My last meal was Sunday brunch and I ordered the crab cakes Benedict. Each part of this was tasty and done right especially the crab cake which had very little binder and was mostly crab. The poached eggs were done to perfection as was the Hollandaise sauce. Azur is located in old town Key West in a quiet and charming neighborhood. I've eaten lunch, brunch and dinner at Azur and it was always an enjoyable experience. The only fault I have are the acoustics which make dining inside very noisy, especially if there is a large group celebrating as there was this past Sunday. The hostess however, did seat us as far away as possible.

    We were surprised to find Azur almost empty at lunchtime. We enjoyed small dishes from their $6 menu and had plenty to eat. There was a leak in the ceiling over my companion's side of the table. It only dripped once. Otherwise we would have changed tables. But we were always waiting for the next drop.

    Our waitress was phenomenal - accommodating a few requests and booking it from one end of the place to the other. The menu was pretty limited, for lunch anyway, and it was only OK. Restaurant also has odd acoustics - one about of laughter from a nearby table and I couldn't hear my husband talking tight next to me.

    As someone who lives in Key West, it's easy to find your favorite places in a rut with regard to the menu. Not at Azur! It's a delight to dine inside or out. The chef continues to innovate and the service is impeccable. The specials, the octopus, the care, the love that obviously goes into the menu. It reminds me of the scene from Big Night where one of the guests says this is so $&@?/&$ good I should kill you!

    We are visiting from NC and found this spot on open table. The food was excellent; we had the seafood combo of mussels, clams, scallops, with gnocchi and also the snapper. Our server was very informative and excited about sharing his knowledge and the food with us. We got the flour-less chocolate cake which was delicious. We sat inside in the blue dining room which was quaint and serene. The porch outside is beautifully lit and would be another great place to dine. We will definitely be back on our next trip!

    Every year we visit Key West and we have our favorite restaurants, so it is sometimes difficult to try something new. This year we tried Azur and must say we'll be back next year. The food was fresh and delicious! My "meat and potatoes" brother-in-law hesitated to try Azur; however, he ordered the Angus Rib Eye and was very pleased. I am both gluten and dairy intolerant and found many dishes on the menu I could eat without too many adjustments. The Walnut Filled Eggplant was delicious, and sweet enough to count as dessert! The Mussels were ok, but a little too big and chewy for my liking - and the only reason I gave the food a 4-star rating. Otherwise you cannot go wrong with Azur, since the service and ambience are 5-star!

    The reception was casual almost slovenly. The waiter declined to give us a table outside even though as it turned out, there were unoccupied tables outside for as long as we dined. The wait for food was interminable. Our waiter Joshua was a pleasant young guy who was eager to please, but the kitchen took its sweet time. This is not typical of Azur as I eat there once or twice a month year round.

    Enjoyed a great dinner last week at Azur. We split the Frisée salad which was plenty for two. It was very refreshing with a slight twist to an old stand by. Highly recommend it. The carpaccio special was tuna when we were there. The fish was so fresh and perfectly marinated,I could have ordered another serving to make an entire meal of it. My husband had the snapper, and I had the duck. Both were very good and well portioned. We ate outside which was pleasant and romantic the night we were there. Between the food, service and ambience, we felt Azur was a great value for the price.

    Chose Azur for my birthday dinner while on vacation in Key West. Liked the ambiance, the date small dish appetizer, the wine and the pecan honey tart for dessert. My main course of gnocchi was a tad odd for my taste and I didn't like the surprise salmon on my other appetizer. The waiter was ok but seemed much more interested in the wedding party in the same room. Overall I would recommend this restaurant to friends especially if they eat meat and seafood. I don't eat either, but would probably still go back, maybe for the interesting Sunday brunch they offer.

    Haughty reception, nice decor. Expected a great dining experience but ended up only fair. The menu is short. Not a lot of specials either. The food was disappointing. The artichokes tasted like they were right out of the can. The mozzarella was watery and loose. In fact I was able to spread it on the tomatoes and a piece of bread. My rib eye was over cooked and served over a bed of blackened overcooked potatoes, olives and capers. The snapper was just bland. After the table was cleared, without a word the server slapped two desert menus on the table. After looking it over, we opted for the check.

    I ate here twice during the week I was in Key West. It was a delight in every aspect. The menu items were creative and well prepared. Dining as a single usually means being ignored by waiters and long waits. At Azur the pace matched my dining progress perfectly. Other I met at the guest house had similar experiences. I highly recommend Azur and will visit it next year.

    Dined on 3/17/2014
    Enjoyed this Mediterrean-inspired spot well off the beaten path in a residential neighborhood in Key West. Charred octopus salad was a real standout. Nice selection of gnocchi and terrific selection of "tasting plates" and appetizers. The former were truly tiny portions for a low price. Appetizers were large enough to share and delicious. I especially enjoyed the artichoke app. We went with a large table of 10 and had to wait about 15 minutes for the table. Otherwise, service was good considering the large size. Overall, we recommend trying Azur if you want something a little different out of the hustle and bustle of Duval St.
