    My ceviche was delicious. My entree however was NOT. It's not your traditional Peruvian food. As a peruvian myself, I wasn't impressed. Will not be going back

    The food was served cold and there was no excuse because the restaurant was not full at the time. The waiter never came by the table after the food was served to ask us is everything was satisfactory. We did not send the food back because it was already late and we were hungry. Very poor service, the food had a good flavor, but was cold.

    Chosen based on reviews and searches and very glad I listened to what I found. This place has amazing ceviche, terrific food overall and is a very chic and interesting decor with lighting that changes color through a cycle. Very nice, great prices for the quality and quantity. Glad I went and I will go back...

    Dined on 1/21/2013
    We stayed at the Hyatt Regency in Coral Gables. Costazul is a block away. I picked it based on the menu. We had the octopus and olive salad and I had a "restorative" fish soup. My wife had a different fish dish. The cuisine is Peruvian, so we washed it down with a Peruvian beer. It was great. I'm glad we found it. It's not on the hotel's recommended list, but I recommend it.

    Puruvian mixed seafood dish, Tacu Taku, is simply outstanding - the mild sauce and rice/beans mix make it special. The fish en papillotte was too bland for my wife. She ate it but didn't love it. Ambiance and service are excellent. This was our third time here.

    The best ceviche in town and maybe in the world. I lived in Lima in the late 70's and never tastefd better cevich than Costa Azul's. Their aji de gallina and lomo saltado are excellent as well. As long as they keep their chef, they will be the best Peruvian restaurant in town.

    Overall the place was very good but I will recommend mostly for couple(s) w/o children. If you are coming with a group of people, I would do it earlier in the evening. The beverage menu is not large so be ready to settle for a common beer or just wine (white or red).The food was very good. I am planning to bring my wife.

    Dined on 3/18/2012
    Having enjoyed this beautiful restaurant once before w/ relatively good experience, we were eager to return. It was empty (two tables), yet the service was poor- uneven & slow. We had to keep asking for water and the glass of wine was obviously oxidized. Instead of then opening a fresh bottle, the server brought over a collection of his open bottles, all equally past their prime. Only redeeming aspect was the Causa, a delightful appetizer with great flavor profiles. Can't say the same of the tacu tacu w/ overpowering cream sauce slathered over the plate. We then witnessed the managet arguing with other patrons over their dissatisfaction with their ceviches. Overall, it left a literal bad taste in our mouth--we probably will not return.

    The meal started fine with good service and food. However one of our guests found a piece of glass in her beer. This can happen in any restaurant but not good ones since it's the server responsibly to check the glass. When pointed out to the server and then to the manager we where told that it would be taken care of. We continued with the meal, including desert. When the bill was presented nothing had been done to "care of it" not even deducting the beer with the glass. When pointed out to the manager he became defensive and took the check with the payment in full and walked away.

    Took my girlfriend here for Valentine's Day. Very nice, the food was delicious and the wine paired with it just perfectly. However, the service was very slow (though this could've been the occasion, it was filled to the brim with happy couples), and we had the misfortune of being seated by the wall, which is right under an LED light that changes color every 5 seconds (it got old very fast). Overall, it's a great date spot, and the food and wine is quite delectable. Just make sure you're seated away from the wall with the lights.
