Terrible experience. Took my family and my parents there for Mother's Day and made the reservation through Open Table. When I got there, they kept sending me to the wrong place in the resort where we were eating. The right place was the first place, and no apologies for sending my family around the resort looking for the right restaurant. Second: we wanted to eat outside to view the ocean/beach, but you are sitting in the pool area surrounded by hotel residents sun-bathing and kids. Third: when we needed plates to share appetizers, the waiter brought us coffee saucers. The kicker: the waiter did not give us the option for the Mother's Day brunch. We had to order from the menu. While we were leaving, we saw the buffet and asked who that was for....we were told by the hostess that it was for the Mother's Day brunch....
One person in our party opted not to have the buffet. He ordered a hamburger which took over 45 minutes to receive. The rest of our party was done long before he received his meal. As such, he took his lunch home...What a pity for our Mother's Day and birthday celebration. Additionally, we were charged for a coffee which was supposed to be included with the buffet. The restaurant, location, and view are lovely, the food was pretty good, and the customer service was not impressive.
Great atmosphere, especially if you sit outside. I was looking for something nice with good food that wasn't the typical fried seafood. The food was decent, but overpriced for what you get. I had the duck, which was overcooked and had tiny pearl onions that were under-cooked and very "oniony." Someone had the flank, which was tough. The filet my son ordered weighed about 2 ounces and was $34. And the zuchinni spaghetti was flavorless (it's the first time in a nice restaurant we've ever asked for salt). I think it's typical hotel food trying to be fancy. Unfortunately, it's one of the only nicer restaurants in the area.
I took my girlfriend here for a nice evening dinner. I highly recommend this place, it was a romantic dinner experience and the service and food was fantastic. Hoping to dine there again! Plus there is complimentary valet parking!
We visited during Jeep beach. The hotel seemed ill prepared for the volume of people. Our poor waitress was running ragged but she did an amazing job. The food wasn’t bad but I’m not sure I would go again just for the food. I had the crab cakes and they were dry. I understand it’s an “upscale” place but they could make life much easier and service much faster if they allowed bus tubs for the bus boys.
Reservation was made a week in advance. Upon arrival, there was no hostess. Once we finally saw an employee he informed me that he would “try to sit my party together” our outside reservation was not going to be honored because “he didn’t see that earlier”, he was very rude. Needless to say, we didn’t stay!
This place is a hidden gem. It was very quiet on a week night. The food was excellent.
This chef is the real deal! Flavorful, not over the top, elegant, and delicious.
Excellent value for 5 star food.
The server was miserable. Never smiled. It was a buffet so all she had to do was get drinks and she was so unfriendly doing it
This was a business dinner. The menu had great variety and it was easy to find something for everyone. lovely view. Fun dinner.
Went to celebrate 3 April birthdays. One on this day. 2 couples, 1 from Australia. Very busy with a Military Ball and a wedding. Drinks outside were great and Shea was a great waitress. Dinner inside was a disappointment because of the noise level. Large table with teens who were noisy and inappropriately dressed for an upscale restaurant. Food was good, not great as it has been in the past. Next time a special dinner celebration will not be here. I will go back for a casual lunch or drinks and dinner outside.
Always a great place!
We were disappointed in the brunch menu. There were not a lot of options that my family liked. It appeared that other families were going to a breakfast buffet. It was not offered to us. We would have preferred a breakfast buffet.
Started off well. Our first visit. Went downhill fast. Our server got busy with a large party at an outdoor table and we were ignored. When our meal finally came it was lukewarm. Server took off the prince of our buttermilk whipped potatoes As we hadn’t seen potato purée was with the filet mignon. Potato purée is NOT the same as buttermilk whipped potatoes. Usually at fine dining server asks tap or sparkling? No one asked and gave tap. We had to ask biased for sparkling. Needless to say we did not stay for dessert.
Dinner with visiting friends from New York. The food and service were fabulous. I would recommend dinner or breakfast to anyone staying at the hotel or visiting the area. This is our third experience and we are never disappointed.
The service was excellent on this occasion. The food was very tasty.
We were staying at the resort. Had dinner on a Thursday night. Food was good but nothing spectacular. Pricey. Service was very attentive.
We enjoyed the breakfast more- delicious banana chocolate chip pancakes, and eggs with vegetables( can't remember what it was called)
Bloody Mary bar for 2 looked amazing but didn't try it. Service for breakfast outside was slow.
Denise was an amazing waitress and the manager was very kind as well! We had a beautiful dinner & evening. We will definitely be back😊Thank you!
Great service! Great food! We celebrated our anniversary. Would recommend this to friends. Great outdoors atmosphere !
Thanks for the birthday dessert!!
Meh. We are on a Friday night. The filet was a mediocre cut of meat ($34). The wine (Cabernet $14/glass) was also not very good. Same with the sides and desert. Service was pleasant but inattentive. Actually wait for 15 minutes for my 2nd glass of wine before we ordered. They did comp the 2nd drink which was nice but it was annoying to have to wait so long. Nice atmosphere though. We sat outside and it was quiet. I can’t say I would recommend it for a date night, though. We were expecting better food and service.
It was race weekend and we were seated between two large tables of men from the race teams. Very noisy but we enjoyed in spite.
Grouper and fillet was very good! Lil pricey but I expected it. Overall good for a date night w someone special.
The food was excellent , but the filet was outstanding! Definitely recommend and will visit this facility again.
The pictures on the internet do not reflect the dining room at all!!! There were no tablecloths , the table was sticky , they had the doors open to the bar it was VERY noises . Very limited menu they were also serving a lunch menu at 7 pm at night !!! We were dressed up & yet when I called about the dress code we were told no flip flops etc . People were dressed in sweatpants !!! We will not go back at all overpriced for this place . Don't waste your money or time .
We went for brunches a Sunday at 12noon & there were no truly breakfast options after 11am. Just a bit disappointing. Also, very few vegetarian options for brunch. We sat inside & it was a great view & quiet.
We were celebrating my 60th birthday in Daytona beach and Denise at Azure Restaurant was a Wonderful Holiday Accent to a Most Memorable occasion
It was Christmas dinner and it was great. Not many places open but this was and we we very pleased. Have been here several times before and never disappointed. Food service and staff are great. Was a bit noisy with families and kids but it was ok. It was Christmas after all.
My wife and I were staying at the Shores Resort & Spa, where we'd just thoroughly enjoyed my cousin's wedding the night before. We wanted to try Azure's gourmet seafood, having seen their "swanky interior & a seaside terrace" for the past few days. Overall we enjoyed ourselves, but something just seemed to be missing from the kitchen's perspective. Every dish seemed to have been prepared using fresh, high end ingredients, but the culinary artistry we're used to seeing at restaurants with their price point just was not there. Positive: Our waiter was extremely fun (and proudly Puerto Rican) and he definitely wanted us to enjoy ourselves. I'm going to say that my review may be biased by a combination of extremely high expectations, and the fact that it was the week of Thanksgiving (the beach was pretty quiet and cold). Anyhow, if you're in Daytona Beach and budget's not an issue, this is a cool location to dine!
sent back first filet ordered medium rare looked and tasted well done another was sent out it was a little better but not much it was comped and desert was comped also place was nosiey Oh and server forgot the lobster and mac. And drinks where weak. Wont be going back
Location, atmosphere and excellent service.
I have nothing negative to say about my experience at Azure. The service was great! We started with a glass of red wine, We had the corn and crab Chawder, and Lobster bisque with a Rosemary bread that was amazing.....Our entrees were the seafood autuffé and the Black and blue prime rib.
We will recommend this place to others to experience the save service we had.
Thank you Azure and staff for such an maxing experience.
Great place to go for any occasion. We love it, good food, great staff.
The food and service were great but the ambiance was just plain not there. I expected an upscale décor with matching clientele but instead it was mostly Dad, Mom and the kids, all in tank tops and flip-flops. If you're looking for a place to romace your sig-other, this isn't the place.
The food was not worth the cost and not how it was represented on the menu
Overall a pleasant experience with a couple of glitches. We had come in the afternoon to check out the restaurant and booked a specific end table with a view of the water to celebrate our Anniversary. When we arrived, our table had been taken by another couple. The waiter was superb and we both ordered the corn crab soup. He came back after 10 minutes and said they were out of the soup and could he substitute the lobster bisque which we agreed to. However,
it was very salty and unlike any lobster bisque we had ever had (too much sherry, perhaps). At
any rate, the entrees were both excellent (one seafood and one grouper). The bread was
excellent too. The menu is not big but appropriate for that special occasion. The waiter
gave us wine and a dessert on the house after our complaint with soup so we would overall
recommend this restaurant.
Beautiful view, very good service, food was a good value and generous portion. Not pretentious.
We enjoyed appetizers and cocktails for a casual date night. The food was delicious and the service was spot on. Wine is a bit expensive. Outdoor porch is nicely protected from the wind, great place for a nice sunrise or sunset
This was our last night at Ormond Beach and wanted a particularly nice restaurant. This was it. Outside dining gave us a terrific ocean view. Service and food were both terrific
Facility was not conducive to a mid-evening meal with bright lights and loud large group (12/18) seated next to our table immediately after we were seated. Service was good but stretched, water glasses were not refilled and had to ask for steak knife - not what I would expect of a highly rated restaurant. The meals were as ordered and served hot. We have previously visited and the same unearned attitude of pretentiousness exists. If the experience lived up to the attitude it would be outstanding, unfortunately it does not.
The food was good, however, over priced for the ambience. Noisy with kids, not what you expect with this price range. Very disappointed.
