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.

Duck breast dish was very, very SALTY and the breast was not sliced correctly. I guess the kitchen staff was in a hurry to plate the dish.

We were extremely disappointed that AZUR was closed for renovation and Open Table had confirmed the reservation more than once. At the last minute we were scurrying for another place to have dinner.

We had not been to Azur since it opened (literally), for no particular reason for not going. We were very pleased with everything, especially the service. We will be back.

The food and service was very good. The noise was WAY too much. The singer was good but so loud for the restaurant that there was no way to talk to your guests. Would not visit again unless it was with someone I didn't want to talk with.

Service by Lenny was excellent! All the food was good but the salmon croquettes need some kind of "fish gravy" on them. Otherwise, a great experience.

Why anyone would bother going to a restaurant “downtown” I can only imagine it to be for reasons other than an exquisite meal in an exceptional environment with 5 star service and entertainment as well. We met friends we relish to visit but rarely can arrange. The array of uniquely crafted culinary selections from appetizers to entrees to desserts is a culinary treasure box. Thank you Jeremy Ashby for keeping your gifts to the Beaumont neighborhood.
Wine, beer and cocktail selections were top rate. We shared an creamy Chardonnay followed by a smooth yet robust Pinot Noir. The guy enjoyed a local beer followed by a flavorful but perfectly balanced Woodford Manhattan.
We lingered quite extensively as Matt Castle shared his considerable talents playing non-stop as we shared this special time to make memories with dear friends. Personally, we all agreed that perhaps Matt Castle should be invites to the Railbird Festival this August of 2020.

We have been here many times. Ordered a rib-eye and was disappointed. My wife had the risotto and it was outstanding as usual. One less than perfect meal won't keep us from going back. No place is perfect all the time! Tried the new dessert drink a Buffalo Trace Bourbon Cream root beer float! Wow!

Met some friends yesterday for lunch. We hadn’t been there in years. Fabulous!! We all got salads (two of us got the Brussels sprout salad...my friend got it with grilled chicken and mine was with grilled shrimp). Fantastic!! Our other friend got the buffalo chicken salad. She said it was fantastic. We’ll definitely return!!

Excellent! Only drawback was the Blue Point grilled oysters...they were extremely small, nickel size for $2.99 each.
Overall though, wonderful food, great choice after Keeneland. Going back again, for sure!

We were there on $5 night. The burgers were good except one that was recooked and still almost raw. There should not have been a charge for that. Our server was very busy- too busy to refill drinks.....

We went to AZUR for my son’s Birthday. We had 3 strips that were overcooked and burnt. My daughters order was flat out wrong. They gave that order free but it couldn’t make up for the experience. All steaks were burnt and it was the worst $350 meal I’ve ever had.

Price wise, this restaurant is comparable to Carson’s or Malone’s. Quality wise, it’s not even close.

The food is innovative and excellent. Portions are generous. Staff is appropriately friendly, efficient and helpful. The room is open and inviting if occasionally a bit noisy. There are plenty of choices for good food in LEX but I keep returning to Azur and have yet to be disappointed. We had six people for this visit and every one raved about the meal. Keep it up.

So, I have been to Azur several times and noticed two distinct things. Number one the food is always good. But service is spotty at best and bad at times. It's not good to have one server for 7 to 8 tables. Service is slow enough and inattentive that I may not return to Azur.
