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.

    we were a group of 6 professional men (36-42 yrs old) who have experience in fine cuisine and we were not impressed with the food. The fish was poor, Side order of pasta was very poor,as well as linguine. Pasta with mushrooms was good. Salad and deserts were better than the main course. Drinks were good. Service was great as well as ambiance.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 6/16/2012
    The hostess greeted us nicely and properly, but when walked to our table our 'reserved' one was occupied, so we were left there standing alone in the middle of the place waiting for someone else to come and guide us to another table. Although the overall experience was really good, when going to an overpriced restaurant you expect the service not only to be better but also more organized. The food quality was good, but our food where left next to our table waiting for the waiter to come and serve it for a long time, without mentioning that I had to request for 'steak' knives twice. Great decor, good concept and a good chef. It needs to be more focus on training the people who work there.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011VIP
    Dined on 5/19/2012
    We had been to Villa Azur previously and enjoyed food, service (other than questionnable handling of a rejected bad bottle of wine on one occasion) and ambiance. We were therefore excited to reserve the restaurant for a Saturday lunch to celebrate an important family event. Unfortunately they decided to stop serving Saturday lunches. More significantly they failed to notify us of that decision.Purely by chance my wife called a couple of days before our reservation to discuss the planned event. Only then did we learn that our reservation was cancelled from a surprisingly unapologetic member of staff. Otherwise we would found out when we arrived to a locked restaurant.

    Great look and feel of the restaurant, crowd jetsetters and wannabes. Staff at bar very helpful and professional. Service was poor, main course arrived after 95mins (we didn't even order appetizers). After speakingto the manager, the waiter we weren't happy with, came at us again and clearly voiced his discontentment. Food was ok, but no wow effect. Would only recommend the location to someone interested in interior design, not for service or food.

    I was really looking forward to eating here and was so disappointed by the treatment of the staff and the quality of the food that I will NOT go back nor will I recommend this restaurant to anyone. When we first arrived we were not greeted by anyone we were chastised for not telling them in advance that we were 4 in our party when there computer had us for 3. I had called the day after making my reservation to include another person. A voice mail answered the call and I left it on there (which they did not get obviously). Terrible experience. From Beginning to end.

    Waiter rushed us from the moment we sat down to order, order and order. Before we finished our first drink he swiped it away and tried to take our order. We were not ready and wanted a second drink. We had a 7:45 reservation and they get a much later crowd. He wanted us to eat and leave. We wanted to enjoy the ambiance, our meal, and our friends. After we complained to his superior, we were "dropped." by the waiter and had to try to find someone to take our desert, after dinner drinks, etc.

    Never wrote a review, although I eat out a lot. I spoke the manager discretely to point out my experience matched the reviews I had read prior to dining there: nice environment, good service, however the food was fair a best. My server was great. Food was just above par, and way overpriced for the quality. Very disappointing. There was soemthing cheap to the whole vibe and experience. Prime Italian level, for example only, this is not.

    Gorgeous & terrible. Such a disappointing experience. A spectacularly beautiful place with great music ....but lost its luster as our evening progressed. Waiter never said hi- just pout pared water & ran away. Husband went to bar to get drinks-- since waiter never reappeared. Service was non existent. Food was bland and took 2 hours for entrees to arrive. Waiter took my plate after my husband complained--just grabbed and ran. Left us sitting with no bill, no nothing. After complaining, being told there would be NO bill-- and saying that we were happy to pay for wine & oysters (which were fine), the entire bill of $400 (for 2 of us) was delivered. Very bad situation. Hopefully professionals--like prime group takeover!

    Nice fine French Cuisine, certainly can recognize the style from Nice and its famous Catering school. The service on the other hand is not up to par... Too slow, waiters running around... I got the Dover sole and preparing it in front of the customer is only good if you know how to do it and you do not butcher it... We will get back as we will give the service a chance to improve (as they only opened a month ago)... We don't mind paying premium price for terrific meal but with the actual level of service not worth it...

    The Restaurant is well decorated and it is a place to see beautiful people and to be seen. As food goes it is good at best and has no relation with its price. The wine list while extensive is highly overprice for the quality of the wines. The tables as very close to each other which does not allow any privacy, especially if you are a couple. If you want to visit a trendy restaurant in SOBE and you do not care about the quality of the food or the value, this is a great place.

    We arrived early for our reservation, but after tipping the hostess and waiting more than 30 minutes for a table, we left. During this time the hostess never stopped by to apprise of our table status. I had to seek out the hostess for this information, very discourteous. The entire time we were there, no server ever approached us to obtain a drink order.

Then they presented us with the check without our asking and said they needed our table. When we asked to speak with the manager, they said everyone was too busy. This isn't what you want from an expensive place. They need new management.

    This was my second time at the restaurant; the first time was great, and the food was good. The second time was not so great. Place is great and so is ambiance, but service and food were subpar. The seared Tuna i ordered was overcooked and the veal scaloppini was very dry. I would recommend the place for ambiance and drinks, but definitely not for food.

    A bit eurotrashy. Food was very good, service was a bit spotty, music got progressively louder and it became impossible to have a conversation. I expect that the die-hard Barry White and Bee Gees fans were delighted with the volume coming from the DJ who probably should have stayed on St. Barth's. The calamari was exceptional and the burratina was delicious although far too large a serving (and vastly over priced). Entrees were reasonably priced yet appetizers were as much as entrees. The waiter brought our friends the wrong fish, but they consumed it anyway. $11,000 for a bottle of champagne? I don't think so.

    It's always nice to get a new high end restaurant and Villa Azur is trying hard to be all it's opulent decoration and French influence it can bring to Miami Beach. Straight out of Magic City this is a movie set of a restaurant. The food was great. Four of us had Chateauxbriand (2) which was excellent, Prawns which were too cool and had to be returned for reheating, and Branzino which was also excellent. An ajoining diner had problems with Bouillabaisse with no broth but that's another story. The service was spotty. There are lots of waiters running around looking after who knows what but none available to get you what you need. The wine list at 3X is too expensive although the sommelier found us a nice Margaux for $145.

    This place is new and it is tremendous! we usually go to the Delano, but this year, under new management, they wont let you even walk in the place in dress linen shorts or w/out showing ID!!!! Villa Azur and Open Table had some glitch in that that our reservation didn't show up, but they handled themselves beautifully, brought us to a table and we had incredible service in a stunning setting (and i am a Decorator). Service and food- amazing! cant wait to tell everyone about this find and will be back next year- if not before! Please don't change a thing and please don't be stupid like the Delano!
