  • "Fresh fish in Hawaii is a must...especially at Azure! They are many varieties of the fresh caught fish of the day, in which could be prepared in many ways...island way is the best! The entire menu is full of many delicious treats! The service was outstanding and the staff was very knowledgable, professional and extremely courteous! Everything was spectacular!"

  • "annoying people walking by in all manner of dress. dining area should be blocked off so people from the bar, beach or just hotel guests aren't walking by constantly, very annoying ..................."

  • "Beautiful views, great service, and excellent food. The fish choices are plentiful and tasty. There are only two things that prevent it from an excellent rating and they are: the doors remain open, so on a humid day or night, it can be uncomfortable and the wine list doesn't have enough single glass choices of wines, in addition the wine prices are a little over-priced, even for this quality and style of restaurant. A great choice for those who like fine dining."

  • "We had the degustation menu in a cabana, which was sooooo fantastic. Seriously, the best meal I've ever had. The lobster tail and the tenderloin were a tie for most delicious, but everything was great. The wine pairings were a fun addition. It was a once and a lifetime splurge for our 20th anniversary, that I would highly recommend to anyone. And our waiter, Jan, was wonderful. He took excellent care of us. :)"

  • "We had a wonderful dinner at Azure under the guidance of Scott, our waiter, who knew his menu. We had the fillet steak starter which was outstanding, then we had the local fish. Both enjoyed our choices. Desserts were a generous size and delicious. I had the pineapple and lime key pie with pavlova, mm, loved it. Scott suggested a cocktail, with lemon and lime(forget the name) and it was so good, I had another! It was a lovely evening and we enjoyed watching all of the beach action from our table. A must when visiting Honolulu. Thanks Scott for your wonderful service."

  • "Was very accomodating for my special occasion. Perfect evening. Lamb Chops and Okapaku were fantastic. The staff, food and drinks were OUTSTANDING. Can't give enough praise. The price is what you would spend on a special evening and for what we received we were more than happy with what we received for our money."

  • "I picked the place when I learned that they get their fish from Pier 38. My bf, who happens to be the birthday boy that day, doesn't eat sashimi but he promised to try. I wanted him to have the best 'first time' experience so I had to get him to a place that uses only quality fish. The seared ahi did not disappoint. The ribeye was excellent and portions are huge! We had to bring back leftovers to our hotel. Moreover. David. our server was so great all around! He also indulged us by becoming our 'professional photographer' for the evening. He was so keen on getting the perfect shot. He made it a point to capture the celebratory mood and the great scenery in every frame. :) We had great pictures! As my friends say, postcard-perfect photos."

  • "I'm going to skip all the compliments that everyone else has already given to Azure. Here's my tips: *if you're debating between Roy's Waikiki or Azure, both are great. Go with Roy's if you're on a budget but still want a fancy-ish dinner. But if you don't mind splurging for a special occasion, GO WITH AZURE. Our total was about $300 with tips (both ordered the tasting menu with a cocktail & added foie gras). *if you're like me who can't ever decide what to eat, go with the tasting menu. Allows you to get a taste of their best dishes. *If you've never tried foie gras, ADD IT to your tasting menu. The taste wasn't overly strong that make you go ew, liver! For the price and a melting liver...I think it's worth it. *ASK FOR OCEAN VIEW. :)"

  • "Wife and I were celebrating our 10-year anniversary when we went to eat here. We arrived at 8:30 because the drive back from the north shore took so long. Needless to say, we were hungry. It was half an hour before we even ordered and another 20 mins before the food arrived. There was some other party going on at the time, so we were clearly sidelined on occasion. Besides that, the food was superb and the waiter kind. I'd be hard-pressed to spend that much again for anything less than perfection, but I don't eat out at these types of restaurants very often anyway."

  • "Service needs some help: Hostess was rude, telling us the kitchen closed at 9pm (then why offer an 8:45 reservation on OT?). Server was...odd. Forcefully telling us not to order a side that "no one likes" (it was very tasty). Ocean salad (large, we split) was delicious, husband had opakapaka and I had seafood risotto. Both very good. Loved the breads/crackers and the butter sprinkled with Hawaiian sea salt. Chocolate gelato was so-so. The bar area adjoins the dining area and unfortunately some loud and obnoxious patrons were cussing and yelling all evening, which definitely interfered with our enjoyment of the evening. Altogether, seems like it might be a nice place for lunch or early dinner, but for a late dinner not so much. "

  • "Food is really only fair. The fish prices are extremely high, but the taste is not hotel class restaurant quality. Only worse fish in waikiki is at the Halekulani Orchids, where probably some ecuadorean line cook just douced the "Orchids House Speciality Fish Dish" with soy sauce and the plate tasted just soy sauce, with complaints about the dish falling on deaf ears."

  • "We had the tasting menu that included the Azure Sashimi (avocado filling and ponzu type sauce was perfect compliment), Ocean Cappuccino (lots of crab/shrimp), Kona Lobster tail Risotto (soooo delicious) and Kula Strawberry & Fior Di Latte (tasty). My husband had the Butter Poached Filet of Beef (melt in your mouth goodness) and I had the Monchong (yummy, too). Everything was so good. Looking forward to another visit to try other things on their menu! Service was excellent - our waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive. Now on our "special dining places" list!"

  • "Excellent ambiance and food, quickly prepared (although the portions were not large). Perfect for our wedding anniversary. They put us at a table by the beach, overlooking the spot offshore where we were married."

  • "Based on reviews, selected Azure from 4 others after reviewing the online menus. My wife had the crimson snapper in restaurant style and I had the seafood risotto - both outstanding. The snapper preparation (and presentation) was the best fish dish in years. Highly recommended. Expected signature restaurant in the Royal Hawaiian. "

  • "My wife and I ate at Azure after friends told us about their dinner from the night before. They were right - the food was terrific, ambiance was spectacular, and the service was (thanks to Brent) impeccable and personal. The only minor issue to mention is we were not prepared for the pace at which the courses were served. We spent a bit more than 2 hours at dinner (8:00pm reservation), which is fine and quite enjoyable when you plan for it. "

  • "This is not the first time we have dined here, and we will be back! The service was excellent, the ambiance was romantic and classic old Hawaiian! We highly recommend the whole fried fish of the day! It is so well done, in its salt burial, then pan fried, with just the right side art! Perfectly done! The salads are clearly island born and fresh with just the right amount of dressings! Nice wine list by the glass too. A great night and the beginning of a great vacation! Highly recommended! "

  • "The best dining experience yet. Service & Food are top notch. Exceeded our expectations on every level & Azure is certainly now our favorite restaurant. Too bad the rating is limited to 5 stars. This is clearly a 10 star rating at the least. "

  • "We came away with our 5 teenage children to Hawaii, and I had one night free for a quiet romantic dinner. Azure did not disappoint. We chose the tasting menu , and was going to have he paired wines but our waiter ( whom I forgot to get his name ) was so knowledgable and helpful with wines we went for a bottle and finished with his recommended Hungarian desert wine which was exquisite. Each dish was beautiful my favourite being the butter poached beef with quail egg and truffle sauce. The ambience so lovely. Our waiter was superb. My only slight disappointment was I booked months in advance for a private cabana, and when we arrived they had said the cabanas were full , and I felt an email would have been nice. But I would 100% go back again"

  • "If you are a foodie and love seafood, this is the place for you. The tasting menu is excellent and provides a great sampling of the chef's delights. There is a wine pairing option, and the selections are excellent and portions generous. The starter was a tuna and hamachi sashami followed by a dungeness crab soup. The 3rd course was a lobster tail on top of risotto (made perfectly) and the final course of beef tenderloin provided a nice balance to the meal. For dessert, the waitress surprised us with a homemade gelato with balsamic glaze and flourless chocolate cake for two. ( 20th wedding anniversary). My husband is allergic to shellfish and could not partake in the tasting menu, but his Ahi tuna w/ signature seasoning was great!"

  • "Evening dining in the open air on Waikiki Beachfront. Superb service by all the staff. Wide selection of fresh seafood and preparations, with a nice array of appetizers and accompaniments. Could not ask for a more enjoyable experience, and without doubt on our list of restaurants to patronize again. Not the first time we have dined here over the last several years--each time has been consistently wonderful."

  • "Azure is tucked away in a corner of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel. You can enjoy views of Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach from your seat. The servers are very friendly and professional, but the real reason to come here is the food. Quite simply the freshest, tastiest seafood you can find. My "big plate" portion was quite generous, I could barely finish it, with a truly special blend of flavors that complemented each other perfectly. Of course, they are not giving it away, but if you want a quality meal to celebrate a special occasion, this should be on your short list of options on Oahu. The only "ding" I would say is you may notice the furniture and menus are rather well-worn, but this in no way detracts from the quality of the meal."

  • "Made a reservation to celebrate my husband's birthday. We requested to sit outside to have a view of the beach, hostess told us there would be a 20 minute wait. She took my cell phone number down and said she would call when table was ready. We chose to wait next door at Mai Tai bar and got drinks. Gorgeous night out. Hostess came to look for us after 15 minutes (I noticed I had missed her call later when I checked my phone). I thought it was very nice that she came to find us even though I had missed the call. She seated us outside in a private cabana. We were serviced by Richard. My husband ordered stuffed lobster tail and I had risotto. Ordered a bottle of cab as well. Food and wine were excellent. Service was top notch. Best ever! Go!"

  • "I took my wife and entire family out to celebrate our wedding anniversary for dinner at the Azure in the Royal Hawaiian which exceeded all of our expectations. We sat out in the beachfront cabana and had the 5 course tasting menu with wine parings, the food and wine were perfectly matched with each course. The setting and service was excellent and we do plan to return."

  • "I can't rave about this place enough. We ordered the tasting menu. It was expensive but if you have the money it is so worth it. Everything tasted amazing and I was plenty full by the end of dinner. We were seated as close to the beach as possible and it was so romantic and relaxing. We went a little later so it was after sunset and there weren't many people on the beach. It was really great! Everything was perfect! I would definitely recommend this restaurant and the tasting menu!"
