Came because of the social media hype. The drinks were insanely overly priced. Around $16 starting per drink, insane. The seafood didn’t have an authentic vibe to it. I ordered aguachiles and just got shrimp soaked in lime juice. No flavor and they weren’t cut as they typically would be. There were a a lot of kids there. I know it’s a restaurant but there were way too many kids for the type of vibe they are going for. Overall, it could have potential but be prepared to spend a lot of money for an industrial Chicago view with mediocre food.

The lobster empanadas were delicious, and the margarita tower was really fun. Service was outstanding, too. Really great place to sit outside with views of the skyline and river. Loved it!

Food was excellent.. drinks were awesome .. server was great and very attentive.. only con for being Mexican and not liking spicy food.. I ordered the surf and turf and my shrimp were spicy. Menu did not indicate how the shrimp would be served but then again I didn’t ask..

It was a bit loud as a party seen. I couldn’t hear my waitress and they couldn’t hear me. So that was a bit annoying. But the food was really good. Had the empanadas and lobster roll.

Although the food was very good we were seated next to a speaker which was extremely loud. We kindly asked to have the volume lowered or have that speaker unplugged but it was still very loud. We did not get any plates or silverware when we got our appetizers and the same happened when we got our main course.
Food and drinks were great!

This was so bomb. The atmosphere was great. I love the furniture, the music, we were greeted at our table with shots of peach margaritas. My only complaint is the food was a little spicy to my liking. I am very sensitive to spice. I definitely would recommend and be back!

Items ordered were requested to all come together but were not sent that way so adults had food and starving children waited 20 minutes for theirs to arrive. Tables by the window the booth are too far from the table very hard to eat. Food was lacking flavor and depth.

Was super packed and even though we had a reservation we had to wait awhile. Then we were offered outside seating “with a heater” but it was a tiny fire place thing and it was freezing out.

Perfect place to enjoy brunch during boating season. Our party of 6 celebrated an early Mother’s Day there and loved everything we ordered. Favorites are lobster empanadas and the baked pineapple seafood dish. Will definitely return!

The ambiance was great. The drinks were also good. However, the food was bland and horrible. We ordered Guac and chips which was the best tasting thing. Shrimp ceviche was flavorless and the shrimps were so chewy. The langostinos lacked flavor. The rice seemed old because it was crunchy. Yes, that’s right crunchy rice. The carne asada tacos tasted like straight charcoal. No flavor, not even salted. I wouldn’t recommend eating here. Super overpriced for no reason but come for some decent drinks.

Food was delicious but service was not great. Music was too loud for me. I requested that they turn it down but they clearly had no intention of addressing the request. I understand they have a demographic that they want to please - I am not in that demographic. There was not a lot of guests present at the time. Was also really hard to flag down servers.

we don't usually do reviews, but our experience at Azul was BAD, it was our second time there so we were looking forward to it. Salsa and guacamole were mediocre, my wife's lobster was completely overcooked and inedible, my seafood quesadillas were tasteless and the street corn was cold. An overall awful experience!

I really wanted to like this place because a friend recommended it to me, but the service was horrible. Terrible communication between staff, bus boys, hostesses, and cooks. Delay in food, delay in drinks, & other needed items (cutlery, water, napkins, etc). Had to ask for these items like 5x. My food didn’t come out warm. Maybe they did not know how to handle the crowd that was there today, but still. I’m very disappointed. Maybe it will be better on another day.

For the most part everything was great. My only issue was that my salmon was not cool enough for me. Next time, I will make sure to them to cook it more.
