We came to Azur a while back
We came to Azur a while back and wanted more generic items on the menu? Seemed that EVERYthing was fusion / eclectic. We came back a few months ago and the menu had changed, food was fabulous, music was great !!! So when my sister's birthday was coming up and she asked for recommendations I said Azur. We came last week - 8 of us for her birthday and everyone had a great time and loved their meal. Something on the menu for everyone !!!

Azur is fabulously consistent
Azur is fabulously consistent in serving savvy cuisine with great service. Chef Ashby's menu is constantly evolving and I am always pleasantly surprised by his new additions. GREAT all the way around!

The food was incredible. There was s large party there at the same time so I assume it was atypically loud.

A fantastic meal! The restaurant
A fantastic meal! The restaurant was packed inside and on the patio. We had great service and delicious meals that were beautifully presented. Great atmosphere and world-class cuisine in a small town, neighborhood setting. From the appetizers to the desserts it could not have been better!

We enjoy this restaurant a lot. This time, we decided to learn something about bourbon. The bartender was friendly and helpful.

Perfect Al Fresco Gem!
After a very long day, I convinced a friend to join me for dinner at Azur. We were tired, but we weren't disappointed. We sat at the far end of the patio where we could hear the live music, but we could hear each other easily. The most difficult part of the evening was deciding what to eat - too many yummy choices. Great service, great selection and great ambiance.
4/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was well prepared and presentation was nice. I had the duck, and it definitely ranks as one of the best. We went on a Friday night, so there was some live entertainment which wasn't too loud and provided a nice backdrop. Unfortunately the patio was full, so we'll try it again.

Dining on the patio is delightful
Dining on the patio is delightful as was most of our meal. I had the house salad and a pizza. I do believe it was one of the best pizza's I have ever had and we sat near the pizza oven so I even watched it being made. My husbands ceasar salad was less than stellar but his gnochi made up for it. We love the ambience of the patio for a light sunday nite supper. Will be going back!

We had a great time at Azur. We were a little worried....we had 2 kids with us but we sat out on the patio and really enjoyed our dinner. We started w/jalapeños and baos. Yummy! 3 of us had wood fired pizzas, 2 had shrimp and 1 had steak. Service was great, patio seating was very comfortable and they have a nice wine list

Good food in a hip locale
Eclectic, well-prepared food in a friendly environment. Large craft beer selection including local faves. The bourbon barrel aged ale is a local treat.

Azur is our go-to spot to celebrate! Anniversaries, birthdays, new jobs, engagements, anything. Maybe just a Thursday night. We love the extensive bourbon list and the menu never gets old. New items join old favorites all the time. Daily specials are always amazing! I've never had even a mediocre meal at Azur! We also love it that the atmosphere is not stuffy. Everyone is always having a good time!

Enjoyable and Unique
Azur is about fine dining in a modern decor that is far better than it's Beaumont strip mall location might suggest.
The menu is a playful tour of flavors and contrasts well executed by the staff. Service was excellent.
Azur is a unique spin on modern dining in southwestern Lexington that we had overlooked in the past. The food and service will have us back again soon.

My wife and I had been meaning to eat here for some time, and her 40th birthday seemed a fine reason. The service was excellent and the taste and presentation of the food were outstanding. Our server took the opportunity while my wife was away from the table to ask if I simply wanted a dessert brought out with a candle, and my wife loved the touch. We will certainly return.

Best food in Lexington
Best place I ate for my entire stay in Lexington. Great bourbon list. Great food. Try the burger, you won't regret it.

Best salad ever!
I have never had a lunch side salad as good as this one. The freshest of ingredients included mixed greens, dried cranberries, blue cheese crumbles, almonds, and balsamic vinaigrette. But it wasn't just the ingredients themselves that made this salad outstanding. The ratio of all the ingredients had just the perfect balance to provide a fabulous, one-of-a-kind taste. (If balsamic vinaigrette is not to your liking, other dressings are also offered--but the balsamic is fabulous.)
6/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
very elegant but quaint
There was 4 in our party. We thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor dining · Food was great. great place for a girl's night out or special occasion. Wait staff was very friendly. Will definitely go back.
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
A very nice experience.
We will be back, over all very nice. Dishes were creative and varied, the heirloom tomato salad was very good the bourbon chicken, duck breast, steak and sides. The one dish that was good but not memeorable was the BBQ brisket, in my opinion. Again, over all very nice and we will be returning.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a great time listening to music with some great food.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place to dine!
My wife and I have eaten at Azur 7 to 10 times now and each time we go they impress us. The service is always very good, the atmosphere is excellent and the food is wonderful. I don't think I have eaten the same thing twice, and everything is delicious. We live on the other side of town and it is definately worth the drive to get there.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best restaraunt in a while.
Definitely top ten life meals and service. I loved sitting on the patio. Menu was great, It was a hard choice to choose. Everything was timed perfectly.

Back to Azur
Just remembered that every year I travel to Lexington , Ky. I end up dining at this restaurant . The food is always fantastic , had the special blackened tuna with risotto , my friend had the brisket, both were delicious, the portions were quite plentiful. They also expanded there patio with live music, very impressive . I highly recommend the restaurant and will definitely return next year. Great job Lucas ( our server). Thanks

We really enjoyed your restaurant.
We really enjoyed your restaurant. The food was excellent, and the choices were not the ordinary.
All of us loved the presentation.

Everything is good!
All of the food selections are good. You can't go wrong at Azur.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Azur is tucked away and is a gem. We have been many times and NEVER have had a bad meal. I have taken friends here and business clients alike. They all have loved it. The patio is is GREAT and there is suitable music on the weekend so as not to spoil the mood. I would not hesitate to recommend Azur to any person.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Arrived promptly for a 7:30pm dinner reservation & was seated immediately. We had a leisurely dinner with great food & service.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Grant was our server, and we explained our dietary restrictions and he went out of his way to meet them!!!
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Azur is our family's favorite celebration spot. We love the patio and the reliably incredible menu! We like the regular items as well as the changing specials. We'll keep coming back!
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice and relaxing
Had a good but it was loud out on the patio so we moved inside to enjoy the peace.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nicely prepared sea bass - creative
We sat on the patio because of a noisy interior and loud bar scene just outside the main area. We split a sea bass, very nicely done, over risotto and green beans. Sounds simple - but very well done. Wine list is nothing to rave about, although our Chilean sauvignon blanc was quite nice.
Service was great, especially considering walk out to patio area.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I had the pleasure of introducing Azur to out of town guests as an alternative to their only other dining experience in Lexington. We had a lovely time on the patio and enjoyed seeing the owners as they passed through. The entire dining experience from the food to the service to music was excellent.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ask for a table away from the bar
We were seated right next to the bar, which was fine until a party of 20 came in to wait. They were very noisy. The food was absolutely outstanding; easily the best dinner I've ever had in Lexington. The desserts in particular are original and tasty. There weren't any solely vegetarian options--that would be a nice addition.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a wonderful experience at Azur. Love the outdoor seating. The live music (Audio Triage) was phenomenal. I appreciate people that can play the guitar, but this guy is over the top and the band overall are great. The food was awesome!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
wonderful, unusual food
Excellent service, top quality food. The dishes were innovative, unusual and perfectly prepared. Our table had the salmon, halibut and duck breast - all were superb. We did not like the TV screens and the music was too loud, but otherwise the patio was lovely and the china and glassware beautiful.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and great patio. Never had heard of this place before but a great find
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
The location of this restaurant is very unassuming, but don't let the exterior dissuade you. The outdoor patio area is very large and comfortable. The menu was varied and everything we had was fantastically prepared and extremely flavorful. Excellent drink list and there was something for everyone in our party of four. Our server, Alex, was very friendly and knowledgeable. She was ahead of the curve in anticipating our needs and helped make a memorable evening. Nothing but good to say about our experience at AZUR.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious, innovative dishes. Subtle use of ingredients. Lovely presentation. Their description of themselves is absolutely right on.
Duck with sweet potato was outstanding (almost didn't order because of feta). Bourbon fried chicken fabulous. Should have dined there the next evening instead of trying an old time Lexington standard. Wish they were in Chicago!!!
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dinner in the dark
We had requested an inside table initially but it was such a lovely evening that we had that changed to the Patio. Problem is due to an electrical problem, the patio was almost in the dark. We didn't mind and had a great waitress (Alex) and the food was incredible. The blackened tuna was perfect as well the mozzerella chicken. I highly recommend the coca cola and bourbon ice cream or the peach cream brulee. We will definitely go to AZUR again when in the Lexington area.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Simply Splendid !!!
Everything was wonderful: food, service, and presentation. We will definitely dine here again on our next trip to Keeneland.!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Made our anniversary great!
Food was wonderful, patio seating was very nice, had live music, all counted together to make our experience a wonderful one! Our waiter Sam was wonderful! He took our picture, answered questions & put a candle in our dessert. I would definitely recommend!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
bourbon trail visit
We were visiting the Lexington area for the bourbon trail stops and found this place. What great food and service. Easy to get to, very good menu, ate out on the covered patio, where there are heaters if needed. What a great find!!! If we had had more time, I would have gone back for another dinner.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have dined at Azur several times and we always enjoy it. Try the truffle fries!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food at Azur is always so flavorful, delicious, beautifully presented, high quality and reasonably priced. The atmosphere is quiet so you don't have to yell over the noise or music to talk to others at your table. The staff are pleasant and attentive. Add in they are a Kentucky Proud supporter and it's the perfect dining experience. The patio in good weather only adds an additional pleasant plus to an already great place. Parking is easy as well. No wondering how far you will have to walk at night. Your car will be right outside the restaurant.

Excellent food and generous,
Excellent food and generous, flavorful portions; very fresh. Service was somewhat slow, but friendly...
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
I ordered the Tuna special and it was cooked perfectly (I ordered it medium rare), and the bacon risotto with butternut squash was divine! The espresso truffles for dessert were the perfect little sweet taste that we were craving. This restaurant never disappoints. It's been favorite restaurant for the last years, and it doesn't look like it's losing it's #1 position anytime soon.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had been there before and this visit was outstanding as usual!
Their food is always wonderful with such creative combinations and selections.
One of our favorite places!!!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Celebrated our 22nd anniversary there and will return many times. Great food!
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good neighborhood restaurant
The chef puts together delicious combinations for foodies. No need to drive miles for an excellent dinner.
