    I've been here a couple of times now and last night was the best yet. Both the appetizer special (pork belly on pimento cheese grits) and the dinner special (3 lamb chops) were phenomenal. Our server, Peter, was great. Pleasant, informative and funny. Really enjoyed his service. I just love everything about this place. They do pack the tables in there but it never feels crowded. We had a table for six in one of the tall sofas. Felt very intimate. Great for a special occasion. Highly recommended. One of my favorites when visiting Jacksonville Beach.

    This restaurant makes a statement from the moment you walk down the hall into the bar and see the ocean over the dunes. Very modern decor, attentive staff and beautifully prepared food. The chef came out to ask if everything tasted ok! We all had some sort of seafood, and the presentation of it was lovely. We took an out of town colleague and it would be equally good for a customer or other professional event as well as for a special dinner for any number of people.

    We experienced Azurea at One Ocean to celebrate my husband's birthday. The restaurant was upscale, elegant and quiet with a view of the ocean. The service was impeccable. The food was sophisticated and full of flavor. Definitely recommend the crab cake appetizer - which is a top rated local appetizer - and any of the seafood dishes which were amazingly fresh. We walked away wishing we had found this place sooner and plan to go back at least once every few months. Great for a romantic night out.

    We loved the ambiance of Azurea at One Ocean and the beautiful view of the ocean. Just perfect for celebrating 40 years of marriage!! Everyone did a fabulous job of making our special occasion, one to remember. Everything from the great selections of wines to the delectable Lobster Gnocchi, to our superb dinner entrees. The wait staff went above and beyond, especially Dwayne, creating an evening that made us feel very special. I would highly recommend this restaurant for not only a casual dinner out but, for those special occasions when you want to impress. Absolutely loved it!!!

    Came here with my parents and fiancé and couldn't have asked for a better meal. The sea bass was out of this world--we even got a free satchel of the seasoning they used on it at the end of the night. From the starters to the dessert, it was most definitely a five star experience. I'd definitely recommend to anyone wanting a special occasion meal.

    Our server really made our experience. His menu recommendations and wine pairing was clear evidence of his training as a sommelier. We ordered the chefs award winning sea bass. It was delicate and layered with interesting flavors and textures. It was a culinary journey and we will be back. We had a drink at the bar before dinner and were told we couldn't sit outside So we sat inside and we waited 15 minutes for the server to return to take our order though bar was not busy. despite the fact that the bar was not busy at all. Drinks were ok. At 12$ per, not the experience we expected. Not only was it a disappointment, but we almost cancelled our dinner invitation because of.

    My wide and I enjoyed two late breakfasts and one excellent dinner at Azurea last week. The breakfasts on the veranda overlooking the ocean were completely lovely. Each menu choice was perfectly prepared and thoughtfully served. The dinner was also excellent. We felt just the slightest bit rushed by the service. Bread and appetizers came out seconds apart and the waiter did not keep wine glasses refreshed. The food was varied, fresh and beautifully prepared. We had the bad luck of sitting near a 15 person group of young women on a girls night out. They were very loud, which disturbed the overall ambiance of the restaurant. Overall, along with Roy's, Azurea will be on our be sure to come back list when in the area again.

    My family was very excited to eat at Azurea. It was my parents first experience. My husband and I had eaten there twice before, and had exceptional service & food. We had wanted to eat outside, but the rain kept us in. The hostess made sure we had a great table, with lovely views. The food was still great, but clearly the restaurant was not staffed properly for the night. We dined right when they opened at 6pm... Trying to beat the dinner crowd. It seems like there were 2 servers for the entire restaurant. We started off with very attentive service that dwindled as the night went on. We had to ask several times for small plates for sharing of sides, coffee to be refilled and our (very empty) plates to be cleared.

    I wanted a special place to take my lady friends & chose Azurea because of the beach views. Well, it was much more than that! Your experience begins with your walk through the Blue Tunnel entrance. Our server Katherine was exceptional. Our lunch was superbly prepared. My Azurea Seafood Salad was beautiful, but more importantly flavorful. The calamari, seared scallops & shrimp were not the over cooked fare served at lesser venues. This chef loves food! Just when you think it couldn't get better, we ordered dessert. My caramel macchiato cheesecake was great, but my friends Southern Pavlova should not be missed! I rate my experience with some of my favorite dining spots like La Mer in HI, Maxim's in Singapore or The Black Pearl in Newport RI.

    Oh my goodness! Azurea is the BEST restaurant we've ever been to. Our server Dwayne tended to our every need. He knows the menu so well and he was such a fantastic person. He suggested wine that complimented our entree. I love how they bring out sample foods and breads with cheese, they allow sufficient time in-between courses to allow you savor the flavor. You have to get the sea bass. It melts like butter in your mouth! Your visit to Atlantic Beach, Jacksonville would not be complete without dining at Azurea!

    I read mixed reviews for Azurea, now I know why. The restaurant opens up to a small bar, which was crowded and noisy the night we came for a romantic dinner. We asked for a table in the back away from the noise, even though there were empty ones we were told by the rude girls at the hostess station that we had to also specify a quiet table when reserving. We asked if we waited would something quiet open up, and were told to come back at 8:30. We were then seated outside which in 20 minutes became pitch black with no lights except candles on some tables, but not ours. No one bothered to bring us one so we went and got a couple off other tables... the food tasted good, but we couldn't see it. Service was onlyadequate. Not going back.

The food quality was ok, but they were severely understaffed for a holiday brunch and that clearly falls on poor management.

    This is clearly one of the best restaurants in the Jacksonville area when it comes to the quality of food, its preparation and presentation. Notable is the crab cake appetizer and the sea bass entree. It is a romantic setting with views of the ocean, one of the only restaurants offering such views even at the beaches. It is a great place for special occasions. If there is anything lacking, it is the service- waiting to be seated despite reservations and available table, and somewhat less sophisticated serving staff than might be expected in this kind of high-end restaurant.

    We had about 45 minutes for a dinner before the play. I made the waitress aware of this fact. While she tried to accommodate us on timing, I ended up standing at the end of the dinner to get her attention in order to pay and leave. The food was not impressive at all. Seafood mix was just ok. Next time, I would go to 11th South or JJ's Bistro when I want a nice expensive dinner. Unless I want some mushrooms -- they were awesome (I am Russian) :)

    Our food helpers were very good, but we waited a long time for our meal. The check was brought out before I asked for it, which was kinda uncomfortable because we wanted cocktails to go with the cigars I had brought. When I requested the cocktails our food helper was very helpful, but I couldn't help feeling that we'd put him out a little bit. The food was definitely an experience, expecially the bread. We ate every piece with every bit of the additions that were offered.

    The food was amazing, especially the scallops. I came prepared to order what was on the online menu to discover that it was outdated. So I was excited about food that I couldn't order. But the food that I had was divine and tasty! The chocolate cake was fabulous. The beet salad needed more dressing but it was good. My boyfriend had the beef and I tasted it- excellent. I requested a table for 4 by the window and when I made the reservation they said this would be ok but then we had to sit in the middle of the room because there wasn't even a table for 4 by a window. The waiter was perfect. I don't see the need to charge $25 per person for a no-show to get a reservation, that seems extreme to me.Overall, it was a pleasant experience.

    Second time to Azurea. First time was wedding anniversary and we had a memorable one with Azurea's help. Disappointed this time bringing the wife and kids for Mother's Day. No brunch for kids, no kids menu. Wife and kids loved their food - mine was not good. I had a beef tenderloin and it was not flavor-full. Waitress was energetic, but forgot to bring out all of our meals and at one point flicked food/coffee on to my wife's white silk blouse. We were able to walk out onto the beach from the dining area and then strolled to the local marketplace where we did some local shopping. We also noticed that one of the blue walls near the beach entrance was patched with a different color blue. Really stood out and looked sloppy.

    I had heard about the restaurant at One Ocean previously but had never managed to eat there until my business had a business dinner meeting with our supplier from Europe. Needless to say, they were impressed both with the high level of service and the quality of the meal. Nice to know that we have a sophisticated high end restaurant with a great view in Atlantic Beach. Will definitely return at the earliest opportunity.
