We spend a week at the Royal Hawaiian about every three years. We usually try various restaurants during our stay, but never find one that has the atmosphere, view, service and quality of food as the Azure. So this visit we dined at Azure each evening enjoying different entrees, sides and deserts each night and were not disappointed.
Great service. The tasting menu was wonderful-just enough food so you left satisfied with the variety, but not so stuffed you could not walk. The wine pairing was innovative (Riesling with beef-it worked). We will return
Wonderful experience- great food, view and service.
An elegant but snobby restaurant that didn't meet our expectations. This was our last night in Waikiki and we wanted to dine somewhere special. The food was good with a nice presentation however there was very little on the menu for someone who doesn't eat fish or seafood. My dining companion ordered the pork chop however when it was served, we were advised the restaurant doesn't offer the appropriate cutlery to go with it. Very odd for such a fine dining establishment.
We had made a reservation in advance and asked for seating on the patio. When we arrived, we were told there were no patio tables available. The small table for 2 that we were seated at was the least desirable in the restaurant. My view was not the ocean but rather the area where the waitstaff came and went from the kitchen.
Service very slow that night. We waited to place an order for a long time with just a glass of water. Then it took quite awhile for our drinks to come. Even then the waiter didn't take our dinner orders and we were certainly ready. So not a great "Anniversary" place for us.
Always extraordinary. The view is awesome. Perfect for a special occasion.
The tasting menu was out of this world and our server Stephanie was excellent with recommendations on courses and wine. Their take on vichyssoise was superb. Can’t say enough about this place, especially the location and view.
I’ve enjoyed many tasting menus from nice restaurants. This one was my favorite. The seafood was amazing. The flavor combinations were amazing. The wine pairing really made the difference. Instead of a typical pairing they really took time to pair interesting flavors that made a big impact to my experience. For example, I bet you have never paired an excellent German Riesling with a 45-day aged ribeye steak. Yes, they also provided a red for those more traditional types. The flavor combination of the Riesling, however, was absolutely outstanding. Beyond the food, the service was so great. What I really liked was that while they are a high-end restaurant and presented each dish with perfection and great attention to detail and timed every course well, still, they were the friendliest hosts and servers. I like the combination of perfection and warm smiles and super friendly conversation about. We had a great experience for my fiancé’s 50th birthday and highly recommend this restaurant to others. Micah was the Manager and also selected the wine pairing. John was our server.
Our dining experience was fantastic, from the food to the service & the amazing view, everything was perfect. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Hawaii.
Awesome atmosphere and view
The setting was lovely. We did not have an outdoor table but that would have been even nicer. The food was very good but small portions and quite expensive. Service was excellent. Good for special occasions.
Overall my experience was quite good. the server was great and the food and wine were also great. Although I was disappointed that restaurant seemed not getting any information that I wrote about the special occasion. When I made a reservation (a week before the date) through OpenTable There is a text box to ask if this is a special occasion so I wrote that this is for my mom's special birthday celebration and also wrote her name as well. I wanted everything as a secret and also I believed the message was delivered to the restaurant but we didn't get any special treat which my friend recommended this restaurant for a special occasion like B-day. Next time, if I want to make a reservation for a special occasion, I rather call the restaurant.
Awesome. The freshest fish you will ever have. Wonderful views and terrific service
We had a wonderful dinner for my wife’s birthday. There was only one negative which was the coffee after dinner. The coffee was way below par for such a great restaurant.
Always an awesome experience. A must-do event if ever on Oahu.
Right on Waikiki Beach Azure is a beachfront gem that does not disappoint. Excellent food and service with exquisite sunsets to match.
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 :)
The food was exquisite and the ambiance was romantic. Once our waiter decided to give us a good experience it all went well.
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.
We had a beautiful evening with friends! The food, service and ambiance were excellent! Would highly recommend Azure for a fun and delicious evening seaside!
Wonderful crispy unaga! John did his usual superhero job.
Next experience ever in a restaurant recommended to anyone
The Menü with accompanying wine was an outstanding experience.
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.
We both had fish entrees which were well prepared and fresh. The tables outdoors under awnings were great, with views of Diamond Head.
The meal and the service was outstanding. We sat beachside and were never rushed. Everything was excellent- so fresh and many things were locally sourced. It was a very special evening -suitable for a special occasion
The food was excellent.
Very expensive but beautiful view.
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.
Good fresh food, friendly staff, great view what do want more ....
Absolutely delicious in an iconic environment. Amazing.
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.
The food here was so delicious and by far the best meal we had in Waikiki. Steak and lobster with truffle soy mash potatoes! YUM
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.
