It was our last meal of our honeymoon and one of the best. The fish was so fresh and well prepared. Our waiter was so informed and was able to give great recommendations. We had a fantastic meal to end our vacation. What a memorable night.

We did the tasting menu with wine, and it was wonderful. The dessert portion was a bit too small, but other than that the meal was very good.

After a less than stellar meal at a competing restaurant in Waikiki we were a little afraid of what to expect here since hotel dining rooms sometimes can disappoint. Our fears were unfounded as Azure is a true gem in Waikiki. The location can't be beat, right on the beach in front of the Royal Hawaiian hotel. More importantly, the food was excellent. Azure specializes in seafood and the dishes here are absolutely delicious. I had the Ocean Salad which was quite possible the best course I ate in a week of meals in Hawaii. The ahi and seared scallop main course also was superb. Service was friendly and attentive. As for ambiance, this is one of the few places in Waikiki where one can have a quiet conversation over a meal. Azure is a must eat place for food lovers spending time in Honolulu.

Azure has quality food, great service and a nice ambiance. The restaurant has tables outside and inside. Outside was warmer, but the view was nice. It's right on the beach. It would definitely be nice to watch the sunset.

Appetizer- We ordered the seafood tower. Fresh and beautiful seafood: oysters, king crab, ahi sashimi, jumbo prawns & lobster. It was enough for the 4 of us. We also got the kona lobster & brioche. The lobster was not overcooked and flavors and textures were great.

Entree- We had was the Crispy Whole Pier 38 Fish (serves 2-3 people). This was definitely the star of the show. Beautiful presentation & crispy skin! Came with 3 different sauces and brusselsprouts, long beans and garlic rice.

Dessert- We received the flourless chocolate cake on the house because we were there to celebrate my Mom's wedding. This was yummy! Served with Raspberry and Lilikoi Reduction & Blackberry Cabernet Gelato.

Chef Shaymus Alwin really highlights the fresh ingredients in every dish. I would definitely return to Azure. What an amazing dinner!

Nestor was our server. Celebrated an anniversary, and we both got the tasting menu. I had mine with the wine pairing. It was great! Our server was on top of everything. Service and food made our night. Everyone is so friendly. Could work on communicating with guests/locals about parking situation. Called the day before our res and was told to park in a particular area, and just so happens that they don’t validate for that area.

We booked an outside table, which due to the rain was not available. They gave us a table which was pushed up against a wall, badly positioned for a romantic dinner but we took it. After awhile the air conditioning unit above our heads started condensing and I was getting wet. They moved us to an outside table, kind of amazing how one suddenly appears.
We ordered Ocean salad, nice, fresh mix of crab, shrimp and scallops with a light lemon vinaigrette dressing. It was delicious. Our mains came from their selection of freshly caught fish. We both tried the moon fish prepared in island spice sauce. The fish was cooked just right, the slightly spicy sauce went well with this creamy fish. Side dishes were garlic rice and beans in black bean sauce.
They have a good wine by the glass selection.

The food was good, especially the clams and scallops. The steak was large, but tough, lots of gristle, for a rib eye. The rib eye was $52, and I definitely would not order it again. The ocean salad was fabulous. Overall, you can't go wrong with the seafood dishes. This is not a steak restaurant, so stay away from the meat selection. Ambiance was fabulous. Can't beat having dinner on Waikiki beach.

We arrived early and took 2 of the three seats at the bar. The bartenders were friendly and knowledgeable. The hostess came and got us right on time and we were seated at a nice table outside near the water. The waiters were informative and the service was spot on. The tasting menu exceeded our expectations. We will be back!

Perfect for our last night in Honolulu and anniversary . Outdoor seating at a great table with beach/sunset views. Service was impeccable. Two hour limit set for outdoors but it was plenty for prompt but hurried service. Highly recommend. Fresh catch was inventively prepared and worth the cost

Ugh, reviews have fooled me.
My friends and I took a trip to Hawaii and this was our grand finale to our trip.
We had such a high expectations for this place, but overall, we were disappointed.
Our seafood plate appetizers were so small for $100... Barely any to share for 5 of us(3 oysters, 4shrimp, 1abalone, 2 tiny...i mean tiny, lobsters and some tuna sashimi) the waiter didn't let us know how much we were getting, so we didn't order any other appetizers.
As a main dish, I ordered Opah, which is white fish and on the description, it clearly said 'creamy'. When I received it, it was super over cooked, reminding me of a tuna can. The waiter told me that depending of a cut, it can taste a bit rough, but if it depends of a cut, shouldn't I get a better cut in the first place?!?!
I had to take it back and at that moment, I didn't want anything else because other entree ordered by my friends weren't that good either.
Additionally, when we first arrived to the restaurant, I asked for an outside seating- which 'no, we don't have it available' would have been fine, but the hostess told me that I didn't request it at the time of reservation and since I didn't, she can't give to us. The whole night, there were barely anyone seating outside. Maybe 5 tables total at the restaurant. Not sure why she denied us seating outside.
The one good thing was that our waiter was very nice. He gave us some dessert on him to make the situation better. I really appreciate that.
Other than that, I didn't enjoy the food, other staff nor the atmosphere.

今回は2年前に家内と伺い、雰囲気が良かったので、親せき夫婦と一緒に伺いました。
予約は1か月前でしたが、サンセット時の予約は満杯でした。
ウエイトレスさんは可愛いお嬢さんで、多分日本人ですかな、サービスばっちりです。
今回はノンアルコールでしたので、一通り食べたのですが、ポークやビーフのメインの塩が多すぎでしょっぱく感じました。前回は赤白ワインのディナーでした。
ワインとともに食せば丁度よい味付けなのでしょう。
飲まない方には、あまりお勧めできません
