Great on all levels.
First time visitor and our experience could not have been better. Food, service and ambience were all top notch. Azuma has a great vibe with a combination of the dining room, sushi bar, decor and piped in music.

Yakisoba was not as delicious
Yakisoba was not as delicious as it normally was in the past, not sure what was missing, just could feel it tasted a little different and not as good.

The food was excellent, the
The food was excellent, the service was excellent. However, one of the appetizer's that we ordered was never delivered. When we notified the server of this, he immediately apologized and removed the order from our bill.
I'm sure it was minor oversight that was lost in translation, so to speak.
My wife and I have dined at Azuma on many occasions and would not hesitiate to dine at, or recommend Azuma to our friends!

We were celebrating an anniversary
We were celebrating an anniversary and had a really nice time. It was very nice to be able to walk along the water after dinner. The food was wonderful. Our waitress was accessible and willing to make suggestions. The prices were reasonable.

Date Night Flood
Our first visit occurred during heavy rain and flood conditions so the restaurant was empty. My wife enjoyed the Sushi (I'm not a fan of the "uncooked" variety) and my lamb chops were perfect - which the server rightfully suggested over the beef option. Our service was well-informed on the menu and attentive to our needs, yet respectful of our privacy on a rare date night without the children.

Good selection for everyone
Although sushi makes up a good portion of the menu, it looked to have a wide selection of other choices for those in your group not into sushi. The outdoor area was a decent size, but not huge. There wasn't too much overhead coverage, which could be a problem on a hotter night. We were there on a Monday, so the staffing was light, but it looked like everyone was trying to pitch in to ensure everyone was taken care of appropriately.

Mother's Day lunch
We had reservations for 6, but showed up with 9 people. They asked us to wait a couple of minutes while they rearranged our seating. It was quick and we were seated in a couple of minutes. Appetizers and main courses were excellent. We have never been disappointed at Azuma.

Azuma on the Lake is fantastic! Extensive menu for cooked entrees and sushi lovers. Tried a cooked entree for the first time - the Thai Sweet Chili Duck and is was amazing! They always have Blue Fin, too! :)

One of the best sushi in Houston

Excellent Food and Amazing Staff
The food at Azuma on the Lake is always fresh and providing a great variety. Whether you want Sushi, Sashimi, Udon or other cooked foods. Sunday is all day on the Happy Hour menu, so a great time to try new rolls or food. The Hamachi Kama is OUTSTANDING!

Great opportunity for outdoor dining in Houston! We took advantage of it. Food was great from the sushi to the duck. Excellent martini also.

Very romantic yet elegant
The ambiance was wonderful, great for a romantic date. The wine was fabulous. Although the entree's were not what I had expected. The flavor was much too mellow. The only side they give you is... white rice. I believe they are mainly known for their sushi.
That was the best smoked tuna roll ever.

Patient, attentive staff, even on busy nights. Very welcoming, amazing food.
The upstairs is amazing for large groups, very private and serene.

Fresh tasty seafood
Wonderful sushi. Great variety of rolls. The daily specials were fun and different. They also have a great drink list. I will be back

Enjoyed the ambiance. We arrived too late to enjoy an evening on the patio, too dark & chilly (Thanks Daylight Saving Reversion).
We decided to nosh on appetizers, which were top notch. But $20 for 3 medium sized scallops does not cut it. I can pick up a pound of scallops for $8-$10. Way overpriced for the portion.

First time there and absolutely loved the food, the service, the ambience.... bottom line, it was the perfect LUCKY DATE NIGHT. Lucky because it was 11-12-13. :) We are definitely going back.
