I loved Azul. Our waiter Eddy was wonderful and recommended three amazing dishes. My niece is 18 years old and he suggested a Virgin Mojito which she was very pleased with. The passionfruit cocktail was phenomenal. The cuisine is modern American with Latin and Asian influences and everything we ordered was delicious and fresh. Everything from the presentation, ambiance, decor, waterfront location and scenic view was fantastic. Our waiter was kind enough to give us two almond tarts that we enjoyed as breakfast the following morning. Azul is truly a fine dining experience and everyone is warm and welcoming. I highly recommend the restaurant to everyone.

We decided on the chef's tasting menue with wine pairing. Food was very good with east world infused flavors and Interesting dish presentation. The service was outstanding. Sarah kept an eye on us to make sure we were well taken care of. Last but not least the venue is pricy. This puts it in the category of special occasions only visit.

Food portions are very small and expensive. Service was great but not sure that mandates an 18% automatic service charge. Food was very good, especially the seafood medley. Setting is beautiful.

Outstanding food and service! We celebrated a wedding anniversary at Azul and it was wonderful . The Twisted Gimlet, Alaskan King Crab starter, and short ribs were amazing. Our waiter was knowledgeable, attentive, and friendly. Everyone at the restaurant was great and the service was impeccable, which is hard to find.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a Miami foodie local who follows chefs, not restaurants. We had pretty high expectations but we're disappointed with every dish. We ordered all four of the servers recommendations and each one of them was just OK and definitely not something I'd recommend to friends.

The King Crab appetizer was wonderful.
The service was excellent and unobtrusive.

Our reservation was at 9:00 and we were seated an hour late. The waitres at the bar area only came once to our table. After an hour wait and several conversations with the managaer we were not offered not even a free drink. Thinking of not goung back. Its a shame because the food was excelent.

The service was insuperable; my table was served by Frank and Eddy, both of them gave us precise information about the food menu, they were very professionals.
The restaurant has an amazing view to Miami Downtown, the bridge and the Biscayne Bay, with a very nice ambiance.

We had a fantastic time at Azul while celebrating our friend's 40th birthday. The food was amazing and the Chef sent a courtesy appetizer full of delicate and authentic flavors. Our server, Claudio, was spectacular. Not only did he describe each menu item with serious passion but he made us feel special and made it fun. Because he knew we were on a special weekend getaway celebrating a birthday, he arranged for a special table by the bar and sent us complimentary bottle of champagne.
Five stars for sure! Thank you!

Came here to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday and everything was absolutely perfect. We had a table on the balcony outside facing the water -- the view alone was enough to make it amazing but everything from the food to the wine to the incredible service was excellent. I don't think I've ever left a review in my life but this was truly above and beyond!

I've been dining at Azul for years. IMHO,
One of the top restaurants in Miami. Fine dining in an elegant but not stuffy ambiance .
Start to finish, our dishes were all fantastic. Portions are neither too big or too small. My wife and I had the 28 day NY strip which was delicious .
In a city where restaurants come and go,Azul is an institution of fine dining . Not cheap, but you do get what you pay for.
