Contemporary American
AZUR restaurant & patio was designed after European establishments providing the feel of being in a different place without leaving Lexington. The food is described as new American and Heirloom Contemporary. The chefs react to what comes at them from the local markets making our cuisine locally influenced, but worldly inspired. The walls are bold blues and greens with curves throughout. The interior space flows outside through three sets of French doors onto the elegant stone bordered brick patio. Weather permitting, the patio is opened and the patio sides could be lowered for inclement weather.

Excellent food and service.
My only suggestion would be to put tablecloths on the tables to compliment the fine dining. The atmosphere is a little too casual for the high end food you serve.

Excellent food. The date night special is a great option. Wifey & I went to celebrate anniversary # 23. Tanya did a very good job. They were quite busy so service got a little slow at times, but overall excellent.

Amazing dinner of wild game special courses with wine pairings and a “wow” apple stack cake dessert! We had a great evening eating talking and engaging with the Azur staff
Great idea ! Great atmosphere and great food!

All the food was served Luke warm. Staff seemed overwhelmed with the number of patrons. Our server deducted our entrees on his own. This was not a typical night at our favorite restaurant. Will always recommend

We went on a Monday night and the restaurant was very busy. Despite that our waiter was attentive as he could be. The food was good but he chopped and house salads were excellent. The manager swung by to check on us which I think is a nice gesture.

We are accustomed to fabulous food at AZUR, and were slightly disappointed. Food was good, but not great.

Service was terrible! Slow, no knowledge of the menu, and terribly ineffective.

Hadn’t been in forever. Glad we had a booth since getting through the tables to get to it was a challenge. Tables seemed crowded. Appears Azur treats staff well because they were calm and efficient- not harried and lacking experience like many places due to Covid. Rose was great and sesame encrusted salmon was yummy.

Sydney K was our server, and SHE COULD NOT HAVE BEEN NICER!
She was thoughtfully attentive and worked hard to ensure my friend Adele and I had a wonderful lunchtime together.
We were celebrating Adele's birthday, and when Adele said she wouldn't have one of your delicious desserts on the house, Sydney generously asked if I would like one!
I'd already known you have delicious Lava Cakes, which our son absolutely loves, so I asked for one of those, and Sydney brought it with a smile. I immediately took it to our son, who was completely thrilled!
I also asked Sydney for three Truffle Fries takeout for my colleagues at The Lexington School, who loved that surprise too!
Sydney K is EXCELLENT -- please give her many thanks and a happy hug from me,

I opted to go to Azure based on their menu and reviews and the fact that they have outdoor sitting. The dish (seafood duo) that ultimately made me decide on this place was awful. The mahi mahi was burnt and overcooked. The risotto was undercooked. And the single sad little scallop was ALSO burnt and overcooked. And the "outdoor" part? It was totally enclosed with tent walls. I would've gotten better food at Applebee's. Or freaking McDs.

Our starters were excellent. Our entrees were partially cold and it seemed like service lagged. We sat underneath a broken light which changed the ambiance a bit for date night

The pork was cooked proper to to medium sleuth food brown, caramelized char and very moist.

I had to go buy spinach to make the side dish at home.

The tuna was seared to medium rare.

The place was extremely busy, which made it very loud. The food was very good, they had gluten free options. My husband and I both had Filet mignon, very nicely done. Generally the restaurant is a little overpriced, but dessert made it all worth while. The desserts by Rose are fabulous. I had gluten free Ooey Gooey Bars and I have to say, the best dessert I have had, gluten free or not. I wish I could have tried the other desserts she makes! They had good wine choices, by the glass or bottle.

Growing up in the Pacific Northwest I am fond of seafood served in many different ways. The Salmon spread was the best I've ever tasted! The Best! Thank you. Jeremy, tell Leslie Ann Steve T and his wife said hello.

Very nice restaurant overall. Seems like a family neighborhood type restaurant. Food was good, although the fish and steak came out lukewarm... not hot.... Our server did a very good job.

The live music on the patio was quite loud. He tried hard to sing popular songs, but we decided we would have preferred no music. I generally love live music.

We had a large group of 11 in for dinner at Azur on a Thursday evening that was fairly busy, with an event out on the patio and us being seated inside. While they were obviously slammed, our server was as attentive as could be expected, and we all enjoyed cocktails and the meal. Everyone enjoyed their food, with a good amount of variety on the menu to suit different tastes, and different wallets. The server was very accommodating in splitting up the check at the end, too. I'd definitely dine here again if back in the area.

Went to brunch after hearing rave reviews. While everything was ‘ok’, nothing stood out as extraordinary (including the fried chicken). They were definitely understaffed, and none of our food was served hot. That being said, the Sea Grits were good and all of the ingredients for our entreesseemed fresh. Pimento cheese fritters we’re great (but again, not hot). Our server was helpful and had a great personality. Overall, the value wasn’t there for the price point.

Nice experience with a varied menu that included sushi. Nice wine list and craft cocktails. Food was as expected which was good. We had sushi and a lovey salad with grilled salmon. Our server was Lenny, who was very attentive and busy! He was great. Overall experience was pleasantly average. It is a busy and slightly noisy environment.

The food was great and the service was awesome. It was quiet when we first arrived, however the noise level did increase as more people arrived, which is to be expected. Overall, it was a great experience and we will for sure dine there again!

I was very satisfied with the dinner experience and particularly enjoyed the main dish salmon with sesame.
There was a very large energetic group next to us, perhaps they were overjoyed with the reopened restaurant! (:-))That was the only distortion!
