A word from Villa Azur
White French doors open out to a gorgeous courtyard dining area with intimate seating for cocktails and light bites. With its French influence Villa Azur provides Miami with chic French elements and an Italian twist evident in its traditionally good food.
The menu at Villa Azur offers an array of serious indulgences from veal fillet mignon to rigatoni in morel mushroom sauce, Châteaubriand or Fresh branzino to share and not-to-be missed macaroons. With a fabulous space, Villa Azur provides the ambiance perfect for a chic night out on the town – great for large groups or an intimate date! A 200-bottle Cave d’Azur wine cellar serves deliciously simple French meats, cheeses, and sandwiches by day, turning into a wine bar and tasting room by night.

  • Two people table too close each oth

    Dined on 8/22/2014
    Even when the place is big enough, two people table is too close to the next one, so it is not as romantic as is intended, it is a expensive place, 2 drinks, 2 appetizer and 2 entree for $270, (entrees were absolutely fantastic but the appetizer is nothing special). Public parking is right across the street, so valet is optional $20, waiter was nice (they are always trying to make you to order the most expensive plates) but he try to make us change our wine to the expensive ones, not comfortable at all

    I had high hopes due to the elegant setting, but our dinner was mediocre at best. The calamari was good, but the muscles lacked flavor. There was some French snobism when my husband ordered a drink that the French usually associate with an afternoon aperitif & the server queried it. The place settings were also bizarre. For the muscle shells we were given small dessert bowls which had to be constantly replaced until the Maitre d popped by and we pointed out that the Tom Thumb size bowls weren't really working out. The abundance of water glasses on the table was also odd.The uneven service and food, along with crazy high prices, $200 for dozen oysters, make this restaurant pretentious with a need to still prove itself .

    The restaurant was really good, the food was nice and the service was good. The only problem was the hostess, she was really rude. I think she was doing a favor to me and to restaurant, she was rude. I will not come back to this restaurant because of her.

    very nice romantic and beautiful, food tasty, not very big variety of sparkling wines. I wanted to order Korbel sparkling Moscato and they do not have it. My friend wanted sparkling Pinot noir -also no luck. Waiter didn't want to have small talk with me about France, but may be he was busy. It was my birthday and even though they brought me a piece of cake-it was no candles on it and all waiters didn't come to sing "Happy birthday" song to me. It was like a little firework on my piece of cake, but I wanted candles. no cigarets in menu. And they did a mistake and charge 4 times more then our dinner was, but they fix it, so better bring cash, so you do not have to deal with your bank fraud department and them on your very special night.

    I'm usually not one to say anything about pricing on menus since I believe that you pay for what you get. Yet,$60 for stuffed Burratta? $400 for their seafood platter that basically consisted of 18 oysters a few clams & lobster? Ummm, okay it better be the bomb. The 1st problem happened when we were seated in their "outside area" (wasn't really outside as a tent basically enclosed the place) & they allowed people to smoke right there. When I asked the waiter if they were allowed to smoke in this area he looked at me like I was crazy! Food was NOT worth the money & I have dined all over the US and world. Service was also lackluster. In basic terms this place is way overhyped, overpriced & the food was NOT memorable. We will never go back.

    1. It was my husband's birthday and when I made the reservation under special requests I asked that they put a candle on his dessert. They did not do so. 2. It seemed there was a big Miami Heat game. I felt like I was in a sports bar when the manager and three other men sat at at table next to us and watched the game on a big screen TV. Why have a game on a big screen at a restaurant that is supposed to be romantic?

    When I looked at all the well rated restaurants on miami beach, I noticed that this one had very good marks.. I totally understand why ! The staff Is very friendly, the food Is perfect (try the seared scallops!), they have amazing cocktails and the atmosphere Is Just as it should be : calm, chic and frenchy. The price Is quite high but its totally worth it, you won't find this quality everywhere. Take your credit card, invite someone you appreciate a lot and enjoy your night, you won't regret it :)

    Must try the cold appetizers. The terrine with fig jam and strawberry nicely done and good for sharing. Also try the goat cheese croquettes which had 5 pieces so it was good to share. The linguine with the mushroom, morel sauce was a little bland and did well once we added salt and we don't add salt. Hold out for desserts. All are large enough to share. We tried the lemon meringue on small round graham cracker base which was smooth and light, perfect for an outdoor setting.

    Generally I look forward to Villa Azur but I did not enjoy our last visit. The waiter rushed us and wasn't very polite. They brought our main course while we still eating the appetizers. The food was eeh ok, but because we were forced to eat quickly it was hard to enjoy it. The crowd is always dressed well.
