Honolulu had tantalized, but not delivered a superior dining experience until this past weekend (12.2.17). Offseason, we didn't have difficulty obtaining an early, but same day reservation. Reading past reviews, the Chef's tasting menu was consistently the choice of other diners. Truly, it did not disappoint, and was a foodie's delight! The wine pairings were not quite as successful for us... it was the food that enthralled us over 5 wonderful courses. We'll return on our return to Hawaii.

This place was great. I don't typically like seafood, but the chef prepared the best lobster and shrimp I have ever had. We did the tasting menu and as a psuedo foodie it was excellent for the price.

I highly recommend this place especially for the prices you spend in WaiKiKi.

Good service!!
Ocean front
Gluten free menu

海の目の前のテラス席と室内の席があり、室内も天井が高くて開け放たれており開放的です。
子連れで利用しましたが、席の配置にゆとりがあるので、ほかのお客様に迷惑をかけることなく気楽に楽しめました。
子供が小麦アレルギーですが、メニューにもグルテンフリーの記載がありましたし、担当のサービスマンの方が相談に乗ってくれて有り難かったです。
どの料理も美味しくて、また利用したいと思いました!

I wish I could remember our servers name: Satuko (?) Japanese. She was so good! Very attentive to my husband who has a very serious nut allergy. She provided great knowledge about the menu and even drink menu (what to avoid). She needs to be commended on her genuine concern and her overall professional manner! On top of all of that, she was a great server! Food was delish! the Opah (first I tried it) was AMAZING, server recommended.

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.

Vacation with brief stay at Royal Hawaiian. Lovely beachside restaurant with great service. Food was excellent as was service. Especially loved the cheesecake,rich but light at same time. Seafood salad good, husband’s opahah even better. Only downside was tables squished in a bit close

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!
