We dined to celebrate a girls holiday in Hawaii and had an amazing time. The service and food was probably the best we had ever encountered and was a lovely way to finish our fantastic holiday. Would love to come back :)

Wir waren 2015 bereits im Azure und haben meinen 60. Geburtstag bewusst hier gefeiert. Mit einer Ausnahme hat alles hat den Erwartungen entsprochen:
Obwohl bei der Reservation der Geburtstag erwähnt war, musste meine Frau das Personal darauf aufmerksam machen. Sofort wurde reagiert - siehe Foto.
Server Team #3 A Samuel H war absolut zuvorkommend, freundlich und professionell. Topp!
Er spricht perfekt Deutsch. Für uns aus der Schweiz war das eine erfreuliche Überraschung.
Wir kommen wieder.

We were lucky to get an outside view table and watch the sun go down over Waikiki Beach. The fish was perfectly cooked and locally caught. The appetizer salad was also delicious but more than two people can eat. Clam dip instead of butter with bread/crackers was fabulous. Sweet potatoes side dish is also enough for three people.

サンセットの時間に予約していたので、ビーチ沿いということもあり、雰囲気はとにかく最高でした。

The Azure displays a beautiful atmosphere and delivers just an "ok" dining experience. With it being at a beautiful hotel like The Royal Hawaiian, it delivers on upscale treatment and a place to be seen. The food was good but nothing to rave about...we had the seafood tower and two fish entrees with kimchi brussel sprouts and garlic rice. The bill was pricey and the service was just fine. The waitress was very nice and knowledgeable about the menu.

The service was excellent. The food was exceptional. The ambiance was beautiful and only diminished by the placemats. Their cleanliness was in question. I was there the next day for lunch and there were birds all around landing on tables (occupied and not) picking at the placemats. My only hope is that every placemat is sanitized after each party vacates the premises. Other than that, the view of Waikiki is the best.

Well, we had a reservation and then they closed abruptly for some labor dispute. We walked awhile to get there. Majorly disappointing. We ended up going to their other restaurant/bar for my wife’s birthday and they served us with plastic ware. Thought this place was supposed to be nice. Screwed up our night.

The last night in Waikiki to celebrate birthdays with friends. Our table was almost on the beach, but far away from the luau going on at the hotel, so we did not hear it and we could talk and laugh for hours-which we did. The service was fabulous and the food wonderful. One friend had the tasting menu with wine pairing and said it was one of the best he has ever experienced. The cocktail menu too was yummy and fun.

We celebrated our anniversary at Azure, while on holidays. Everything about the restaurant was amazing - location, server, food, ambience. In fact, it was so wonderful that we came back on the last night of our holiday as well. The variety of fish on the menu was amazing - fresh every day from the pier- snapper, mahi mahi, etc. Starters were also amazing (scallops, shrimp, spectacularly fresh and tasty salads).

we can't recommend Azure enough.

We have vacationed in the Hawaiian Islands for many years and found Azure to be a real gem in Waikiki. The staff is excellent, the food is innovative and delicious and the ambience is superb! We kept returning for dinner on this trip and were never disappointed and look forward to visiting again on our next winter (or summer) get-away from the mainland.

It offers a perfect dining experience. A landmark hotel, freshest seafood, perfectly prepared, excellent service, on the beachfront, outside, under the stars, with a view of Diamond Head. After sampling most of the restaurants in Waikiki, I always make sure to eat here every trip as many times as I can.

My fourth time here over a number of stays in Waikiki, and still think this is the best in the area, if not a tad overpriced. Elegant decor, nice menu, especially for fish lovers, and great service. As with most Waikiki restaurants, I am dismayed at the prices, and huge markups on wine, but if you want to splurge, this is the place! The next night dined at Orchids, and also very very nice, but a tad bit below Azure in several ways, excluding price.

Superb tasting menu w/ wine pairing. Sat at table for 2 next to beach, terrific view of sunset. Fully satisfied w/ tasting portions - not left still feeling hungry or overly stuffed either. Truly the right amount of food, terrific tasting, and perfect wine pairing. Was informed that Azure has a new sommelier. great pairing! in past, patrons had choice of white or red for steak tasting. Sommelier ordered to give both and paired w/ a Riesling and a Napa red, and they were perfect. Seating options include indoors as well, which might be worth considering if you would potentially get annoyed with tourists' toddler child running up to your table and even asking you questions. My wife and I are pediatricians, and that didn't bother us at all. Laissez-faire parents finally corralled him. otherwise, I might have eventually trached him (kids are less noisy when trached).

Food was fantastic and was paired well with the wine, except for the white wine that was pared with the meat -- that didn't go well at all, but did go well with the bone marrow croquettes. The only criticism I would have is that the wine pours were a little light for the price.

シーフードレストランと思っておりましたが、コースメニューとしましたので、どちらかというとフレンチ料理という感じになりました。
サードプレートの魚料理、メインのステーキとも美味しく、全体的に満足でした。
