Special Occasion Place
50 wedding anniversary for sister and husband. Looked forward to dressing up a little and were happy that there was a wedding party who were also dressed up. Disappointed to see people in shorts and more casual attire but it is the beach. We were led to believe that shorts were not permitted. The food was very good. The service was excellent. Drink prices were high. I would eat there more often if there was a "happy hour" with more reasonable wine and drink specials. All in all, it was an enjoyable experience and made even better by being walking distance to other venues such as Pete's Bar for pool and Ragtime for dancing.

Top notch service and food
We loved everything about this place. Our recommendation is to order the Hawaiian Sea Bass. It might be the best bite of food I've ever put into my mouth. We will definitely go back.

Breakfast by the sea!
Janelle was amazing! Food was delicious as well. I ordered the mayport sunrise, my only side note is the plate was quite small. I ate every bite and it was perfect for me but I don't eat very much. Of someone else were to order they might be a little disappointed. Loved sitting outside, the umbrellas made that possible. Overall great experience.

Food presentation along with quality and goodness cant be beat anywhere here in Jacksonville area.A must go to when in Atlantic Beach area.

Breakfast by the Beach
Service was a little slow for a light Thursday at 8:30 am. Food took a little longer than necessary once ordered. Outdoor seating has great views but there are some ants that may be an issue. Inside is nice and also has ocean views and may be the better option during most of the year. Food was good, not great. Pricey for what you get - resort prices, compirable to dining at Disney World. French toast was good, but the fresh strawberry and whipped cinammon cream were the stars. Potato hash was very good. Fresh orange juice. Good coffee, not great. All in all a nice breakfast for a special treat, but equal or better quality can be had at better prices many places nearby - though you will miss out on the outstanding view.

We have only had lunch at Azurea. The price was fair, the portions generous and the food very good. We also had a wonderful waitress named Janelle.

Amazing dinner and service

Best Food and Service Ever
We live in Jacksonville and enjoy traveling and eating. This is our first time at Azurea and this is our new home restaurant. The food and service is better than Matthews and Marker 32. We found our new favorite restaurant. Kudos to the servers, chefs and management.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Every time we are in Jacksonville we take the drive from downtown Jacksonville to the beaches to One Ocean to eat dinner and have a drink with Hugh at the lobby bar. Best restaurant in Florida.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
best restaurant hands down in JAX
We are world travelers and the food and service at Azurea is world class and the resort is comparable or even better than any Ritz or Four Seasons around the world. Great job and actually looking forword to our next Mayo apointment to eat at One Ocean.

Great for Anniversary Dinner
This restaurant was recommended by our realtor and we're so glad she did! We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and Azurea was a great choice. We arrived 45 minutes early so we enjoyed drinks and appetizers (highly recommend the cheese plate) at the bar with a nice view outside...the full ocean view was blocked by a dune but it was still very relaxing. The décor is modern chic, which added to the atmosphere. The staff made the evening special, with everyone who passed our table congratulating us on our anniversary. Dinner was outstanding and included a really nice complimentary dessert to celebrate. We definitely will come back again!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Experience in Jacksonville
After coming here for breakfast several times, we had to come back for dinner. We weren't disappointed. The service was impeccable, the food out of this world, with a nice and quiet ambiance. We will definitely be coming back for more.

Atlantic Beach Gem
Outstanding presentation and delicious interpretations using local fish and seafood. Meat entrees are excellent as well. Finest dining at the Beaches Town Center but not as casual as the other options in this area. Chef continues to impress and be nationally recognized for his creations. Service was outstanding and Dwayne went out of his way to make our anniversary dinner memorable and special.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love this place. I enjoyed the follow up
and table reservation and that everyone
wished my ex a "Happy Birthday". Little
things like this go a long way.
While the food is exquisite, I would prefer
the opportunity to enjoy a Salad Wedge
with a choice of dressings. My ex
enjoyed everything and I was so happy
to see that he liked Azurea as well.
One problem we had is that we do not
drink alcoholic beverages and the choice
of soft drinks did not offer anything either
of us drink. He did choose one however
I had to go with hot tea.
Steven our server was awesome. And,
overall, I was very pleased with the

So happy to find this local gem!
Enjoyed dinner with my mother as a special occasion and Azurea exceeded our expectations! Will make it a point to go back soon!

One of the finest restaurants in town. The staff go out of their way to ensure a pleasant dining experience. We were seated right next to the main opening into the restaurant and the noise from the bar area carried over into at least the first part of the restaurant which detracted from the "romantic" aspect of the evening. The other negative aspect of where we were seated was the fact that the opening into the restaurant was also right next to a door leading out to the beach so we could see everyone coming and going. This design should really be revisited. Overall, great food, great staff but ask for a table or booth away from the main entrance.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
We thoroughly enjoyed the lobster tacos, crab sandwich, and fish & chips. The key lime slider was to die for!

Excellent! Everything was perfect. What a find! Thank you Open Table for helping us discover this restaurant. We'd never found it otherwise.

Dining in the Dark
We love eating al fresco--truly. We were seated outside almost at once. Our table had a nice candle in a lantern-like holder. We read our menu by this light and ordered.
Unfortunately, by the time our entrees arrived we were, indeed, "dining in the dark." It was hard to tell what was what. I was reminded that appearance affects flavor, an obvious point, to be sure, but one driven home by this meal.
Our waiter explained that lighting was restricted because of sea turtles. That makes sense. I get it. Perhaps it would be helpful to explain just how dark things will get once the sun goes down--or maybe provide a second candle.
The food was good. I don't know how it looked--maybe brown (grilled fish) and green (veggies). Maybe.

25th Anniversary Dinner
We had a wonderful celebration dinner for our 25th wedding anniversary. The restaurant provided a complimentary glass of champagne. Great suggestions for dinner and wines to go with dinner. They also provided a special anniversary dessert and complimentary wine. We had a delicious dinner and received outstanding service. They made as feel very special. We will definitely be going back soon.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
From the moment you walk into the beautiful radiant blue foyer the experience is top quality. The staff was friendly, the booths comfortable. the views of the sea oats with the ocean behind made us feel that we were in a very special place. Our waiter brought us some champagne right after we were seated to celebrate Carl's birthday. The meal had a beautiful presentation and tasted wonderful. The vegetables and fish entrée just melted in our mouths. For dessert we had the most beautiful truffles that were light and tasty. I would rate this a five star experience.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is one of the best dining experiences I have had in years and we dine out often. The service was impeccable, the martinis very unique and tasty, and the food exceptional (we had the sea bass, the scallops, and lobster gnocchi.) The decor and ambiance are alluring. Definitely a must do whenever we are in Jacksonville Beach.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great find overlooking ocean.
We enjoyed this restaurant so much! Great wine list with knowledgeable staff. Food was outstanding and memorable. Hip atmosphere and quiet for easy conversing.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
A real treat
Azurea was a top-drawer experience, start to finish. The restaurant itself is beautiful, and the ocean views can't be beat. The service was the best at the beach, and so was the food. It's not cheap, but neither is it overpriced, especially for the quality of both the food and service. Definitely a special occasion kind of place. We'll be back.
9/20/2013 5:00:00 PM
Always a Favorite
I have dined here on several occasions and the food is always delicious! The service was a bit lacking as it was a very busy night! Had to look for server and ask for wine; my Mother was brought the wrong order but by the time our waiter checked back, she just decided to eat it anyway. However, our wine was comped as a nice gesture. I always recommend this place to friends traveling to this area. Beware of high noise level though... It is difficult to hear one another if more than two people. Very energetic bar scene.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have discovered our local favorite of all time for fine dining. The staff is personable and exudes professionalism at every turn in service. We travel extensively and rarely find a dining establishment that excels in all facets of fine dining. We enjoyed the Adventurous Palate selection with wine paring. This is the best dining we have experienced in Jacksonville ans as Jax natives we will return. Thanks to Shawn, Joe, Chef Phillip, and the knowledgeable Somelia.

Beautiful Place with Great Food!!
Great View of the Ocean and fantastic food! Definately one of my favorite restaurants by far. Service was outstanding as well!!

Lovely dining room...great view!
This was a wonderful spot for lunch...very creative menu choices. We would loved to have had time for dinner there...great menu. Our server was very attentive and pleasant.
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dinner and perfect evening
We go to this restaurant several times a year and it continues to be our favorite. The quality of the food is the highest and the service is always at a level above all the other restaurants in town. The staff makes you feel welcome, extra-special and comfortably at home all at the same time. We recommend it to anyone that is looking for a very special evening to impress someone that you know the best place in town.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent restaurant and good
Excellent restaurant and good wine given with the tasting 5 course meal. The pork tenderloin was a little bit overcooked but everything else was excellent
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
We did the full Chef's experience and it was wonderful! It was a special occasion 3 birthday celebration and we couldn't have picked anything better. The food, the service, the Chef - all excellent!
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, presented very nicely, I would have rated quite except, for the child next to us. This is not a place to bring children. I would highly recommend giving it a try!
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have dined here several times and enjoy the great ocean front location and excellent food. We were impressed with the amazing service and friendly staff at our last visit. We brought our 8-year old, and they told her that they have an open kitchen so she could order anything she wanted to eat! She was in heaven! Can't wait to return.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food/view by the ocean
We went there for the scenic views and were surprised that the food was fantastic, and at a reasonable price. Lamb, sea bass, crab appetizer, even the bread was outstanding!
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for a special dinner
Our waiters were very nice and very accommodating since I am a vegan. The line cook prepared a vegan meal for me that wasn't on the menu and it was very good. Bread service was very good and they bring you a little dessert even if you don't order one. And, we got a sack of fish spice that the chefs use for their seafood, complimentary. Great restaurant for a birthday or anniversary. After dinner, we sat outside on the patio near the fireplace and looked out to the ocean.

Great experience! My mom and I went to celebrate her birthday and she absolutely loved it. Our waiter Stephen was great and answered our questions about the menu with great knowledge. Will definitely go back again. :)

Wonderful service, fantastic food
Quiet Sunday night with a friend and her mother visiting from South Africa. The food was outstanding but the service really went the extra mile. We started outside but they staff accomodated a move inside when the temperature dropped, and did so with a smile. Friendly and helpful service , good food, upscale intimate atmosphere in a beautiful hotel and lovely setting.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very special place
This is somewhere you want to go when you are celebrating a special day or for a romantic dinner. Service, ambiance, view, food presentation, taste were as good as I could have asked. Do yourself a favor and go here when you want to treat yourself.

Lunch with a new acquaintance
This was the perfect spot for us to get to know each other better. Very quiet and calming. The waitress was fabulous and the food was absolutely delicious! The chef very generously made accommodations for us for food allergies. We weren't rushed or hurried, we were made to feel welcome and we ended up spending 3 hours chatting.

My wife and I had a great meal and the service was perfect. One of the best dinning experiences we have had in quite a while. I have recommended Azurea to others befire and will continue.

One of Jacksonville's Best!
Highly recommend Azurea. The Hawaiian Sea Bass and Sweet Potato Gnocchi were superb.

We had a wonderful meal, the service, food presentations, and ambiance of the dining room were perfect.
The Chef is known for his Hawaiian sea bass and it is everything and more our server said it would be.

We love not eating turkey on Thanksgiving. We enjoy visiting new cities and experiencing new restaurants. Azurea did not disappoint. We are a bit non-traditional. Azurea's food was awesome, especially the lamb. The bartender, Doug, was funny, attentive and professional. We had a delightful evening.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
An attentive staff, informative waiter and a wonderful special Thanksgiving menu made for a memorable meal. Although the restaurant had been busy all day there was no evidence of stress or exhaustion from any one of those we encountered. The food was amazing and the service attentive but not overdone. Great meal, great experience!
