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.

Jan. 23, 2022 was our first time at AZUR - we have been living in KY about a year and not going out much due to COVID but enjoyed the quietude, the quality of Sunday brunch and our server's assistance and competence very much -we will return. the Fraziers

Always good. Have never had anything there that has not been excellent. If you are one to look for something familiar, you will love the fried chicken. The woven shrimp is unique and so good. The corn risotto that comes with it is something I have not been able do duplicate so I go back just for that.

Jeremy Ashby is a star.

We went for brunch. The truffle fries were great but the rest was lackluster. Waitress was great and friendly!

They seated the two of us in the far left corner behind the booths. The walls around us were high so it felt like we were in a cave, very odd. The waitress was excellent and very attentive. My friend orders the grits with shrimp and I had the salmon with risotto. Everything was delicious. She had a beer and I had water. Total bill was $65 + tip. Trying to leave was like an obstacle course. It was so packed that we had to squeeze through tables and chairs to get out. That’s why it was so loud. Now granted this was 6:30pm on a Saturday night so it is expected to be crowded but they really packed them in.

We had a reservation at 6:00. They had ran out of one of the specials presented to us already and when it was time for dessert they had run out of all but one selection.

My friend and I enjoyed a mouth-watering, delicious lunch on AZUR’s patio. The food (we both opted for seafood) was wonderful, the sauces exquisite. Service was great, not instructive, yet perfect timing on water refills.

Ordered a salad with fried chicken. Two hours after eating, I was in the bathroom with very bad GI issues all night. I left some of the chicken on my plate because it didn’t taste very warm and it was a little tough. Should have sent it back. Won’t be back here. A friend wanted to eat there, so I did. I have had poor food from this (once a favorite restaurant of mine) before. Kitchen needs to step it up.

I would not recommend this establishment. The menu looked promising but the food was incredibly disappointing. It was too salty and just not worth the price. I will not be back.

Was disappointed. Our reservations were made for 5 PM when we got there, no customers were present. We asked to have a booth and were told that they were all reserved. However, we stayed until 7:30 PM and two booths were still empty and many tables in the restaurant were empty as well. I would have thought we could have been given the booth as requested.......

It was our first visit to Azur after it was recommended to us. The atmosphere was very nice with a great food selection. We particularly liked the happy hour drink prices. The food was delicious, but nothing came out hot. The soup was lukewarm at best and we were disappointed. The fried chicken dish was great, but the chicken was the only hot item on the plate. The mashed potatoes were cold and under seasoned, really tasted as though someone just mashed a plain potato and put it on the plate. The dessert was delicious. To their credit, both the chef and someone who appeared to be a manager visited all the tables, our server was very nice although a bit disorganized and slow. Maybe that is why most of our food was cold.

We liked our server but she spent a good deal of time chatting with other patrons that she apparently knew, and became less attentive to other customers. Azur is one of our favorites.

I thought the food was excellent and there where many great choices. The service was OK. We sat in the patio area which was very nice but the live music which was very good made it difficult to hold a conversation to the point that we left without ordering dessert. I realize it is tough to balance live music which is nice with customer's trying to have a conversion.

We enjoyed salmon pasta, fish tacos, woven shrimp, Peruvian chicken, And a nice bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon. Some bread for the table would have been nice while we were waiting for our food, which took a while. Kaitlyn was a personable server

Azur's food and service are dependably excellent. Our server was particularly accommodating throughout the evening. We always think of Azur when special occasions roll around, but their pricing allows us to visit on more ordinary occasions as well.

On our last visit, they were not very busy, so our rating of the noise level is somewhat misleading. It is not always a quiet place, but we have never found the noise to be unmanageable.
