For Special occasions
The place is espectacular. The view is outstanding. The service is great and the wine list was great. The fois gris was excellent.
the trout great but the lamb was the best.

Atop Miami's Best
This was my first time at Azul, and I was left nothing short of impressed. From the moment we walked in to the instant we left, service was exceptional. My name was mentioned at all times, and my special requests were made possible to the smallest details. The waiter was knowledgable of the menu and made great wine pairing recommendations. The seafood cold platter appetizer is a MUST have (even with the $120 MK Price tag).
I am a VERY picky eater, and one thing that's for sure is I will be back. Prepare your wallets, but be ready to indulge!

From their greeting to dessert
From their greeting to dessert excellence seems to have been their goal, and in my opinion, they’ve achieved it.

What a wonderful evening! The decor is sophisticated, calm and relaxing, with perfect lighting. The view of Miami as the sun set and the evening lights came up was spectacular from a table at the window. Our waiter Brent was totally on point with his recommendations and we each changed our minds to his favorites and were treated into a food coma (the good kind). Brent befriended us as three friends casually chaperoning Ultra attendees and walked us through places to visit in the area-- incredibly helpful, informative and fun. A beautiful dessert selection appeared out of the blue to celebrate our girls weekend out. We could not have ordered a more perfect first night in Miami!

Really excellent food - probably the best restaurant we tried in Miami but some tables are not well situated - ask for one in the main part of the restaurant

Very nice meal - a bit pricey
Nice place. Gets away with very high pricing due to its location. Brent, our waiter, was helpful advising on choices and enthusiastic.He paid attention to details like the pacing of the meal. Julian was friendly, sincere, and attentive. Both were excellent. The appetizers were mixed - the Truffle Steak and Eggs was a nice blend of beef tartar, shrooms, and a quail egg. The cauliflower soup was bland and the accompanying mousse and roe just did little for me. Main courses were strong - the trout(suggested by Brent)was delicious with wonderful sauce,a large filet of tender fish, and perfectly carmelized pearl onions. The bacon lardons were a bit tough and didn't add much but no big deal. All in all - nice albeit expensive meal.

By far the greatest customer
By far the greatest customer I have ever seen. My girlfriend and I were greeted by every single employee we crossed. Our waiter, Juan, was incredible. Really took his time with us and always had a smile on his face. The food was amazing! The view was great! Had a really nice time! Was afraid because it was my first time there and really wanted to surprise my girlfriend. This place exceeded all my expectations!

Great atmosphere but the menu
Great atmosphere but the menu choices are a little limited which is the only reason why it did not get 5 stars. But definitely a great place for dinner.

Special Occasion -Non Local
Anniversary dinner was great! Service was 5 star matching the prices thankfully. Todd the Sommelier was very intelligent about wines and helpful in selections. Lobster Pot Pie was scrumptious. Open Table ratings were great help since we were visiting from out of town.

Another Anniversary at Azul
We don't make it to Miami near our anniversary all of the time, but we did again this year and I had to book a table at Azul. As always, the staff was friendly and accomodating and the food was great. I have a few major food alergies so the staff brought me some glutten free bread and helped me choose an appetizer and entree. We had a great time.

Continues to Satisfy
Living close to the Mandarin Oriental with Azul is one of life's great pleasures. The standards of food and service are in the rarified atmosphere. No wonder the Mandarin and Azul were honored recently with 5 stars.
6/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Azul had terrific service, amazing and interesting food and drinks, and wonderful views and ambiance! Desserts are better at rearaurant downstairs though. Overall, my girlfriend and I consider Azul to be among the best of the hundreds of restaurants we've eaten at in Miami and NYC. We are looking forward to returning soon. We are hoping the restaurant will have the outdoor area open next time.

The sommelier Todd made our anniversary dinner a memorable experience. He made great pairing suggestions and creates a friendly welcoming environment for his guests. The food was a 10 out of 10. Was staying in hotel didn't plan on going for dinner there last minute choice glad we did.

Whether you have a special occasion or just want to experience fine food this is the place. Renowned chefs have created unique meals. The only negative is that the portions are small. Staff was absolutely professional and friendly.

Can't Say Enough Good Things
Went here for our five-year anniversary dinner, and was blown away by both the hotel and restaurant service. Upon arriving, we were congratulated on our special occasion and taken to a table with a fantastic view of the ocean and city. For the ladies, the restaurant has stands for them to hang their purses on. The wine was excellent, but what made our night even better was the waiting staff. They were all kind and very attentive, to the point where our water glasses were never left to go below half-way full. And, at the end of the evening, our waiter surprised us with a cheesecake dessert lit with a candle. Truly was delighted with the dining experience, and highly recommend it.

Romantic Anniversary Dinner
My husband and I went to celebrate our anniversary and we are glad we chose this restaurant. It was a memorable experience. We were seated outside with a beautiful view of the bay. The service was impeccable. Each of our waiters indulged our needs and made sure our dining experience was perfect. They took the time to explain each menu option including their wine list. All the staff was extremely attentive and very professional. I would defnitely recommend this restaurant for anyone wishing to celebrate a special occasion.

Best meal in a while
Amazingly creative and delicious food. Service was incredible, the server made excellent suggestions and was very knowledgeable. Huge wine list, some of it way out of our price range but we had a 2004 Pisa Range Pilot Moor that was exceptional!

Great view, top notch food
Looking for an upscale place for a date night, and this place really jumped out at me. I was not disappointed, as the posh atmosphere and excellent waterfront view perfectly set up a truly delectable, and (relatively) reasonably priced meal for fine dining. My girl said she was "absolutely floored," and we both agreed the Pomegranate Martini was the best Martini we'd ever had. I would highly recommend the experience to anyone looking for a bit of opulence and deliciousness

This was an unexpected experience... Me and my best friend found this restaurant online and what a find!

I can recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a nice restaurant and an unforgetable experience

The pity is that you can not enjoy your dining outside, they are in a reformation process

Best restaurant in Miami
This was by far the best dining experience I've ever had. The food was amazing, I had the Wagyu Churassco with crab râgout on top. Partner had the Chamomile Duck. To die for. What blew out minds was the service and friendliness of staff. Chairs were always pulled out for us and fresh folded linen replaced every time one of us left the table. When the placed the silver clôche over my partners dish when he left the table to keep his food warm I was blown out of the water. Drinks were never empty. Manager, assistant manager, sommelier all came by to check on our service. I have literally never eaten at such a wonderful restaurant. Many thanks to the staff and the management team as well as the chef. You should all be very proud.
