Beautiful setting, and good cocktails. Entrees were served room temperature and I sent back. Kitchen attempted to reheat. Server comped a dessert. No acknowledgement of anniversary as noted on reservation.

Our evening started wonderfully with Laura greeting us with a smile. Then Roberto was amazing taking our order and being very attentive. The drinks & food are very tasty as you can taste every ingredient with having you want more and more. We will definitely be returning and highly recommend this place. Laura and Roberto are definitely an asset to this establishment.

We enjoy the food at Azucar, it always hit the mark. It was a hot summer evening so we ate inside compared to their outdoor dining. The music, even though it was nice was a bit loud. It made it difficult to have an enjoyable environment for 2 diners wanted a nice night out for each other

Everything was great. The only thing was they were out of poblanos so no crab stuffed poblanos, but we were not told until we tried to order. Drinks were strong but good. Food was delicious. Everyone was helpful and pleasant. Would love to go again soon

This was a great experience!
Josue and Laura maitre’d and hostess made us feel like old friends from minute 1!
Service was excellent, drinks were excellent, food was excellent.
I have only praise, nothing negative.
Only ‘constructive’ comments are for a more expansive menu. A couple of more appetizers to go with drinks. And a vegan option or two would be appreciated.
Look forward to going back soon!

Absolutely perfect for my mom’s birthday dinner! Our server, Mario, was absolutely fantastic and made her birthday extra special with a round of shots and a brownie! The hostess was so friendly and took an amazing photo of us! The food was absolutely delicious! I can’t recommend Azúcar enough!

Our experience at Azucar was exceptional. From the ambience, cocktails, and menu selection, to the absolutely fabulous and kind service, every single thing was perfect. The employee recommendations were topnotch - I will plan a trip back just for the beef tenderloin dish and a blood orange margarita. Thank you for having us. See you soon!

Went here for my birthday dinner, I waited over 45 minutes for their chips and salsa and a small salad. The server either forgot about us, or decided to prioritize other tables who arrived after us. I was very unimpressed as we were recommended this by multiple friends. Luckily the atmosphere was good, otherwise my evening would have been much worse.

Service was slow but understandable due to the pandemic. Food was average. The vegan pasta was off and should have been comped but the server was unaware that we didn’t like it. Overall not the best experience.

I love this spot so much! We ate on the rooftop deck just after Sunset, it was gorgeous. Our server made the best spicy blood orange margarita and the poblano stuffed with crab meat was amazing! I can't wait to take my hubby here, definitely a gem.

They really need to improve their outdoor dining area. Majorly run down with limited misters. Overall, ambiance and service has gone down hill over last year. Don’t expect to return after last night’s dinner.

Food and service were wonderful. Front door of the hotel was locked when we arrived so we spent some time wandering around trying to get in until it was magically unlocked while we wandered. Restaurant was unusually empty because it was the day after a holiday weekend so we had a private dining experience. Would absolutely go back and recommend.
