It ain't cheap, but it's worth it! Delicious prix fixe menu, with tastes I had never experienced. Closest to Alinea I've had in Hawaii so far in terms of food quality. Fantastically friendly service as well.

For that price range you expect more than one option for the meal. All they had was a fixed menu. Service was awesome!

Limited food and drink options. Only pre-fix menu at the moment. Truffle corn was way too sweet. Should of offered A-5 wagyu for that price tag or foie gras with the steak. Not the same Azure experience as pre pandemic.

The food was exquisite, the ambience was perfect for a special date, the restaurant was ideal for a dressy night out. The price of the food and cocktails was a bit high in comparison to the overall experience would be the only deterrence from us dinning again.

Fantastic evening. The chef is an artist, and the food was amazing. It’s our honeymoon, and they went out of their way to make us feel special. From personalizing our own printed menus, to giving us a sparkling rosé for a toast, this has been our best meal so far- and that’s saying a lot! Thank you, Azure! We will be back!

Everything was absolutely wonderful. We celebrate our anniversary every year by doing a staycation at the RH and we had dinner at Azure. They gave us the best seat in the house and even had printed menus with a personal message of happy anniversary with our names. They are doing a fixed price menu and it was the highest quality with best ingredients. A truest special experience 😀

Both the food and service was amazing. The main course which was the wagyu strip was THE best wagyu I’ve had before. It melted in my mouth. My husband and I were so jetlagged from our flight that we couldn’t fully enjoy the experience, so we took the dessert (honey cake) to go. We had it the next morning and it was so delicious. It probably would have been better if we ate it on the spot when served. The chef came by to our table to make sure everything was all good, and our server was the sweetest. He was an older gentleman who went out of his way to show us the route (shortcut) back to our hotel so we wouldn’t get lost. Both the food and service was 10/10.

If you dine at Azure only for it's stunning location right on Waikiki beach, you won't be disappointed. No other restaurant enjoys such panoramic views of Diamond Head, the sunset and surfers who look like they could ride their boards right up to your dinner table. Aside from the extraordinary view and location, most everything else at Azure's does not measure up to its extremely high price tag. Currently, Azure is only open three nights per week (Friday, Saturday and Sunday), and, like many high-end restaurants in Hawai'i during the pandemic, Azure only offers a prix-fix menu. I found the $25 price tag on the Mai Tai from Azure's bar to be overpriced and not very good (the drinks and the prices at the Royal Hawaiian's Mai Tai Bar next door are far better on both counts!). The wait staff were courteous and nice, but they seemed to be out of practice. There were long periods during my meal when no one stopped by to check on how things were going or what I might need. The night I dined at Azure, there were three courses prior to the dessert offering -- a delicious asparagus salad, followed by a delightful dish with poached scallops, and then the main entree of Wagyu beef that was set on top of some truffled mashed potatoes. Although there were long delays between dishes, the food was enjoyable until the beef arrived. Unfortunately, the beef dish arrived lukewarm, and I found the quality of beef to be far too fatty for my taste. As I began to feel some disappointment at the end of my meal, I reminded myself to look up and see why had come there in the first place -- the view! If only the food and the service matched that gorgeous view Azure would be one of my go-to places on future visits to Oah'u. There are just too many other wonderful dining options on Oah'u that a return visit to Azure will not be an option for me.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary here. The wait staff was great. They acknowledged our special occasion and toasted us with complimentary presecco and a custom menu. The tasting menu was delicious. Drinks were too strong and expensive. Dinner right on the beach was worth it!

He took the time to share how each meal was prepared and it was beautifully prepared and delicious! Thank you for taking us even though we arrived late because of delayed flight!

With my wife and I celebrating our anniversary this year on Mother’s Day, it was hard to find reservations. However, we came across Azure who had an reservation open up. We booked and I was almost immediately called to confirm my booking, and to be notified of the current 4 course menu, as well as asked if I had any questions. We were able to park at the shared Sheraton garage. When we arrived, we were greeted as Mr. & Mrs. Edwards by both the hostess and the servers. For our anniversary, they printed on our menus “Happy First Anniversary & Honeymoon” (our honeymoon was cancelled last year due to covid). My wife was nice and surprised by that detail :)
The food was incredible- each course continually winning us over. The service was superb. We very much enjoyed the margarita, Ben Collins, and glasses of red wine we ordered. I could not recommend Azure more. The chef and staff at this establishment must be very proud. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would!

The Waikiki beach view was amazing, especially with all the surfers and watching people on the beach. The food and drink were wonderful and the menus and quality of the food was amazing. The price was steep but that is to be expected in Hawaii. Would recommend.

The meat we ordered was mostly fat and the shrimp was mushy. My spouse and I ended up getting very sick shortly after this meal and ended up having to stay in our hotel for the rest of the night which was unfortunate since it was out anniversary. Our server was quite pushy so we ate and left as quickly as possible.

The ambiance was terrible! As mentioned in several reviews, many whales and other swimmers constantly walked through the dining room. With that - I will not go back.

I would suggest Michel’s At the Colony for a better ambiance without the whales walking through the dining room.
