Azabu never fails to disappoint. Great food, service, and value for the price. The sunset menu which is featured everyday from 6-7 is a great way to check out the place without breaking the bank.

Social Distancing in force. Excellent food presentation and preparation. Very attentive service. We sat outside on the deck and had a very romantic anniversary dinner ending with a surprise Taiyaki ice cream dessert.

Fabulous. Loved the eclectic Spice menu that included an excellent sushi/sashimi option (extra $ but worth it - they know how to make it right) so u get best of both worlds. Excellent service from Gregory. I don’t typically post reviews or have had great Spice experiences but this one was amazing!

Spectacular is the best way to describe everything about this restaurant. It has become my favorite restaurant in Miami after only two dinners. The food is excellent is the service is 12/10. I highly recommend the yellowtail collar and everything on the menu is on point.

Excellent food, their sashimi highly recommended. Loved their saki flight concept.
Great service, but our overworked waiter could use another staff person. We ate outside and enjoyed it, but the furnishings and decor are in need of upgrading.

I have been here multiple times, and this was the worst visit by far. Not happy with the food. Was not as fresh as in the past. Service was also not great. Lot’s of interruptions by wait staff and worst of all, when the check came, they did not inform me that the tip was already automatically added to the bill. I almost tipped 38% as a result. Not a good experience to pay $175 for a couple glasses of wine and some sashimi plus appetizer. Next time I have a business Dinner I will take it somewhere else.... only redeeming features: quiet atmosphere and easy to get a table.

I had very high expectations for Azabu based on their pedigree and New York reputation. Although it was good, it was not up to the level of a Nobu, Zuma, Kuro, Mila, Mikoto, Novikov. You will have a better meal at any of those.

Food was outstanding but the service didn’t match the overall quality. Very slow, from the moment we sat and waited 10-15 minutes for a drink to the limited attention, waters not filled and food was very slow to come out. The great food made up for the lack of service.

In my opinion this restaurant is overrated.
I do love going to restaurants and love the whole experience. When I say is overrated I'm taking in consideration all aspects. 1- ambiance was just okay... not anything you would say wow, what an outdoor place. Very little decor. 2- food, was nicely presented but nothing I would say "that was delicious". Nigiri and sashimi very standard. The braised Cod was probably the best thing we ordered. It was very moist and the sauce was delicate.

Maybe it wasn't their best day. But I don't really want to give it another try. Don't get me wrong... the it is an average restaurant not bad... but not great either.

Miami spice food was very poor quality, borderline inedible. Staff was defensive and not accommodating. Tasted legitimately like Airline food. None of the food they offered on Miami spice menu was something they actually serve on their menu. Don’t bother.

Terrible services - Waiter/waitresses were not around. Just drop off the food and ran off. I have to flag down a manager to get a fork for my son. Took 20 minutes to get the fork. Have to flag down another waitress to get me extra wasabi and ginger, she said no problem, but did not bring it. Asked for another person to bring it, took them another 15 minutes. No waiter around to help although the place is not big with at least 3 waiters/waitresses around. The worst is actually the part I complained to the Manager. It is inside of the Marriott hotel so I know I will come back, so I complained to the manager. Instead of focusing on my feedback about their services, he is focus on the mandatory tips. I told him that I don't care about the mandatory tips, as I take it as part of the meal, but want to ensure the services improve. He kept going back to explaining the mandatory services. The price of that restaurant is comparable to Nobu, but Nobu has exceptional services. I think the poor services is due to the manager does not know how to manage the restaurant, as it is evident by his handling of my complain. Next time, Nobu. Too bad!
