    We happened upon this restaurant while searching for dinner places in Daytona Beach. It was a great find! The waitstaff was fun and friendly. The ocean terrace was beautiful and romantic. We enjoyed some great seafood appetizers and the shared the Mahi which was delicious. We ended with vanilla ice cream that was exceptional in flavor and texture. Great place! will go again

    Well, to begin with, I kinda take issue over Azure being marketed as a really high priced restaurant. Sure, you'll pay more than at a chain, but in my experience, the price really was pretty reasonable. Especially for the quality. The food was fantastically subtle, and largely French inspired with some variations. Very fresh and I presume to be almost all local. Though some of the flavor combinations are to be expected from French cuisine, there were also some unusual and exciting variations as well. I cannot stress enough my joy at the subtlety, with the only exception being the buffalo carpaccio - the difference there only because I generally describe buffalo as "very beef". Excellent dining experience.

    This place was awesome. We had a party of 4 for dinner on a Friday night. The food was amazing and the service was impeccable. The atmosphere could not have been better. We enjoyed sitting fireside after dinner and even enjoyed the smores kit they had available at the bar. We will be going back often.

    Arrived at 12:30, served our lunch at 2:00. Dining room had four tables occupied and there were several tables occupied outside. Ordered our drinks and finally lunch. Had appetizers then waited 45 minutes before we received our entres. As I got up to speak to someone, our lunch came out of the kitchen. Food was very good but there was no excuse for the slow service. Not sure if it was a waitress problem or kitchen. Which ever, it was unacceptable and needs to be fixed. We like Azure a lot and will try it again.

    Most of the time, an upscale restaurant at a resort means lost of money and an OK meal. At AZURE, however, the food really was *fantastic*. The lobster bisque is amazing, the swordfish and tuna excellent, and don't skip the delicious deserts. We were very impressed with such a great restaurant - far beyond what we expected in Daytona Beach.

    It had been about 4 years since I had dined at Azure. The view is still spectacular and the setting of the resort is lovely, but I was very disappointed by the food. Portions were ridiculously small and most were over salted. Garlic overwhelmed many of the dishes and took away from the actual flavor of the food. What a shame for such a special spot by the ocean!

    Checked out the restaurant prior to a larger family gathering for my husbands 71st birthday. Meals were overpriced for the portions given. Grouper was good but small. The mac & cheese that came with the grouper was paper dry & tasteless. The Ribeye Steak was tough & grizzled. The Caesar salad was lacking in flavor. The goat cheese & beet salad was poor. Our friends ordered the beet salad and said the beets did not resemble a beet as we know it and did not have the flavor. They also said the smoked chicken flat bread was soggy not crispy as you would expect. Service was great as was the ocean view. Certainly glad we checked out the restaurant before the birthday celebration. We will go somewhere else for sure.

    My wife and I were here once before and really enjoyed ourselves. But this past experience wasn't as good. Don't get me wrong, the food was excellent and the chef does a fine job. But the service was less than attentive. The dining room was empty but we felt like the wait staff was rushed. We did notice that our waitress was covering tables out on the patio which was packed so that was keeping her distracted from our table at times. In fact we weren't even done with our salads when the runner came to the table with our entrees. He asked if he should take them back to the kitchen but you know what that would taste like in a while! So we took the entrees and enjoyed that at their proper temp.

    Our experience at Azure was across the board fabulous. Everything was outstanding; the food, the service and ambience. The food is beautifully presented and tastes as good as it looks. I had the crab cake and the steak with the sautéed rainbow chard and both were perfection. Reasonable portions too, which is rare. Their pastry person has a gift. I highly recommend the orange-infused rum cake and key lime tart. Who knew you could find this level of fine dining in touristy Daytona? We will definitely be back.

    Our waiter, Keoni, was wonderful and attentive. We sat outside and had great views of the ocean. Our appetizers, the warm goat cheese and the scallops were excellent and cooked perfectly. We all three had their signature dish - the Frutti de Mare. This is the only reason I did not rate 4 stars on the food. While the dish was good, it was nothing special. I feel that a "signature" dish needs to truly stand out. The seafood in the dish was cooked just right, but the mussels, which were supposed to be Prince Edward Island, were extremely tiny. Very rare for PEI mussels. But mostly, it was the pasta sauce that was unimpressive. It just did not have any special flavor that one would expect from a signature dish. Too plain. Overall, great!

    We sat on the terrace overlooking the ocean. Dinner starts with a very tasty rosemary herbed bread, served warm (actually HOT ...). Entrees of Coriander Crusted Ahi Tina, rare, over jasmine rice and Seared Black Grouper with Sauce of caper and red chillis ... Quite tasty. Also a side grilled asparagus. A delicious meal with sounds of gently rolling ocean waves as entertainment. (Aside: We visited on a Sunday evening and the restaurant was not busy ... Your experience may be different on a busy night ...)

    Took some very important customers to dinner and 3 of the wines we chose were "out"...server tried to upsell us to a higher cost wine...not "cool"..if you don't have the wine I want and I choose one of higher value, give it to me at the price of my original selection. Also, service was very, very slow...especially since their place was not even 25% occupied. Quality of food was very good, but service, wine availability was well below standards

    Went for a business dinner. This place is overpriced for the quality of food. The service was long and two of the items were not available on the menu. The server took his time getting back to us. It was also hard to find as there was no sign along the front indicating the restaurant was inside. It is located in a hotel and valet parking only. The hotel is nice and seemed clean so that was a plus. Unfortunately, we will not be back due to the service and overpriced quality of food.

    Azure is a special spot with delicious food and a great ambiance. There is a nice outdoor area with fire pits but it was a bit too cold and rainy the night we visited. Keoni, our server, is one of the most friendly, laid back and prompt waiters we have ever had. His future is bright far beyond the restaurant business. The food is delicious and the adjoining bar is a great before it after dinner place to grab a drink. Azure...for sure!

    We arrived a few minutes early and were treated to complimentary valet service (free with dinner reservation). There was no wait for the table and we were given the option to sit inside or out. Although it was a bit cool, we chose the outdoors and the heat lamps provided adequate warmth. It turned out to be a good choice as we got to enjoy a spectacular full moon rising over the ocean. The service was outstanding, as was the food. Our only complaint was that the Filet Mignon was closer to well-done than the medium we requested. It was quite good nonetheless. For dessert we ordered the S'mores, which came in a kit with sticks to roast the marshmallows at the gas fire down by the beach area - a great way to close out our evening.

    We were the only diners in the restaurant. The staff was extremely friendly. Apps were good except the lobster bisque for $9 should have been a bowl not a tiny cup. At least there was some lobster meat in it. My 'grouper" didn't really seem like grouper and it was so salty I could not really eat it. My husband's rib eye was on the small side (not the size advertised) and it tasted like asparagus because apparently they cooked the asparagus on top of the steak. The meat itself was tender but no flavor except asparagus Extremely limited menu Food presentation was very appealing.
