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.

ディナーコース(アズーア・テイスティング・メニュー)を注文。
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。

The Azure is the perfect place for a special dinner. The location right on the beach at Waikiki with Diamond Head in the background is difficult to top. This is a great place to go for seafood and service. Maybe a little on the pricey side but well work it. This is our go-to dining place in Waikiki.

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.

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.

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!

Service and food made our night. Everyone is so friendly. Could work on communicating with guests/locals about parking situation.

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.
