    Super expensive and just not worth the price. Portions are small and I feel like other restaurants have the same feel and taste for cheaper.

    Food and ambiance is great here. One issue is their booths are too far from the table in front of you. The service also could use a lot of work. Very nonchalant server, but she was nice. It was my friend’s birthday so they brought him churros with a candle, but no lighter and did not light it for us and it was extremely difficult to track anyone down to light it for us. They also only did valet even though it was an open lot and we wanted change back and he claimed he didn’t have any.

    Our waitress was really nice but the service and food quality were all over the place. Several of us ordered the same food or drink options and they were served totally differently. Our appetizer came out after we were done eating our entrees. An order of a bucket of beers took 35 minutes to come out. Food was decent though.

    Azul was eclectic and enjoyable . . . the food was excellent and surpassed my expectations. The service was great and the people were friendly. However, I thought it was expensive, but maybe that was due to New Year's Eve, and the dessert leaves a lot to be desired.

    Food and drink were great as usual. I was excited to bring my boyfriend here for his birthday, but our server didn’t make an effort to welcome us, didn’t check up on us and the birthday was never acknowledged, despite my noting that on our reservation. I don’t even know his name, that’s how limited his interaction with us was. Very disappointed, as I usually really enjoy Azul. Customer service really does impact your experience.

    This was the worst experience that I have ever had. I ordered a dish with no cheese only to be told when it arrived that chews could not be removed. My replacement meal, a simple shrimp taco order, came out ice cold twice even after the manager promised it would be prepared fresh. Finally after being promised that both horrible meals would be comped, they applied a 20% gratuity which should have been done for parties of 5 or more, we were only 4, and it was based on the items still being included. The guests I was with and I said we’d never come again. Saving grace was the bartender Leo who assisted with getting the bill corrected.

    Waited over 10 minutes to be acknowledged by a server at our table. Finally she came and took our order and we never saw her again, only the people who brought our food out. We were given our food with no plates, utensils or water. We had to ask. Horrible service. Some other women came over with our check.

    The vibe at this place is really cool, it’s like a bar with the noise level so you just have to talk a little louder. The food here is amazing ! I recommend the lobster and cheese empanadas they’re to die for ! Also their margaritas are so yummy. The decor on the inside is super nice , I definitely recommend have a reservation because this place gets packed on weekends.

    Way overpriced for what it is. The margarita tower is $80 when 4 individual margaritas together is $68? Also the shot that was only tequila, blue curaçao, and lime was $17 each. The food was good, but not for how much the bill was

    If you have ever spend an evening drinking and snacking on seafood on a beach in South/Central America, you will understand the idea behind Azul. The regeton and bachata sound loud and there is plenty of margarita options to satisfy everyone. Make no mistake, while this feels like a beach bar, the food is top notch: best whole grilled red snapper I’ve had in a while! We didn’t anticipate the bar feel when we got there, pretty much assumed it was a dinner restaurant. But while we didn’t expect the atmosphere, it was welcomed especially since the seafood was so delicious. Overall I recommend Azul: great date spot and delicious food and drink. I will definitely go back when I miss the beach!

    We were SO excited when we drove past Azul and it looked like it had such awesome potential. We quickly made a 7:00 reservation for Friday and when we arrived, we were pretty surprised by a few things. First, despite a number of open tables, we were sat at one that was literally tucked into a corner. It felt closed off, dark and just kind of a little miserable. We were super excited when we saw the cocktail menu, despite the high prices because a great cocktail is something we're always willing to pay for. Unfortunately, they turned out to be astronomically priced and yet also very small and weak. The food was also priced quite high for what we received and not described very well. For example, my husband got the Seared Tuna Tacos... which apparently don't come on a tortilla of any kind, they come in a leaf of Romaine lettuce. Now, don't get me wrong - they tasted good, but when you order tacos, because you love tacos, and you get a "taco" that's really just a take on a lettuce wrap, you're going to be a little disappointed no matter how tasty it might be. We were hoping that dessert was going to help us end the night on a high note and ordered the churros, which are filled with Dolce de Leche and served with "cinnamon ice cream". The ice cream turned out to be vanilla, and the churros were burnt, so our mission to end on a positive note crashed and burned: just like the churros. Our reservation was at 7:00 and we were gone by 7:45. Other bits added to the poor experience: There's a parking lot, but it's $20 for Valet which is the only way you'll get to park there. We opted to find street parking. At arrival, there were 4 women waiting to be sat. Not a single one was wearing a mask. Now, I don't like wearing a mask either, esp. as a fully vaxxed & boosted guy. But when there's clear signage in the restaurant, city & state mandates, and a pandemic still on the rampage, I expected someone to tell them to put a mask on before being served. (They didn't).

    The restaurant was very instagrammable, but lacked the authenticity of a true mexican joint. It's a great spot for the summer, very summer vibes, during the winter it seemed out of place. Definitely a place if you are with a rowdy crowd, but not that classy.

    The Service was not very good . It wasn’t that busy but somehow I was never asked if I needed a refill and had to basically chase down the waitress to get any service at all . The food was just ok and Definitely not worth the price they charge as there are many many other places serving better quality food .that dont charge nearly as much . The mango margarita and atmosphere were vey good and were impressive but they absolutely do not make up for their lack of good food and service .
