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.

Great find on our recent trip to Lexington and bourbon country. Food was amazing, our server Chelsea was outstanding and breath of fresh air and her recommendations were spot on. We loved it so much we went there 2 of the 3 nights we were in town and will come back when we visit again. Highly recommended - get their signature chicken, the beef ribs, mussels, chopped salad, lemon-thyme creme brule. Portions big enough to share and they have an excellent bourbon list!

We love Azur and the delicious food that Jeremy Ashby creates.. We ALL loved everything from appetizers, signature cocktails, our entrees and even saved room for the delicious Crème Brule. I've said this once, and this time I even called to ask about the band and noise level (no one returned my call). The music is TOOOOOO LOUD! We asked to be placed on the patio but they couldn't accommodate our party of 7. We could hardly hear our guests talk and our guests ranged from mid 20s to fifty-ish. Why can't the band play soft, ambiance music not loud, blaring vocals? We will return because we LOVE the food but if the music is NOT eliminated or turned down we will go elsewhere.

Azur has one of the best patios in town & during the colder months, they provide heaters & an enclosure that still allows you to be comfortable. Chef Jeremy always has something new & innovative to try. Had BBQ duck quesadilla with goat cheese, caramelized onions & red peppers. It was really good & enough to take home for another meal. Actually enjoyed it as much as I did at lunch.

Horrible service and pretty good food was the theme for the day. Ridiculous price for a non-prime ribeye $65 that was kind of tough but had good flavor. Good appetizers, especially the cauliflower.

We sat outside under an awning. We were not allowed to have our pet Yorkie come with us even though it was outside. Not very happy about that

It was one of our anniversary dinners, we weren’t asked if we preferred indoor or patio which was okay but the spacing didn’t seem enough on the patio—where we were seated. The appetizer was very good, dinner was also very tasty. I was only drinking water and my glass sat dry long enough that I drank most of my husband’s water even after a young lady with a water pitcher passed us by. The temperature was wonderful until the fire was lit behind my husband—he proceeded to break a sweat. We did order dessert to go and waited on our bill although the glasses still remained empty..... I have always enjoyed the food at your establishment and the service has always been tops, so I was a bit disappointed with our visit this time. I hope things get back to normal soon and we can give it another try.

We stopped for lunch from out-of-town and it was an absolute treat. Lunch was delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed the lobster crepes as a starter. Asian Thai salad and fish tacos were great. The outdoor patio seating was lovely. We will be back on our next trip to Lexington.

The Bourbon and Bets dinner was amazing this year! I would love to see that fried catfish as a regular on the menu - the light and crispy coating was perfect. The Photo Finish pie was so rich and delicious.

We loved this place so much! It was our first time out in months (everyone was properly masked and practiced social distancing). Delicious lobster crepes and elote corn dip with unique dippers were our appetizers. I ordered the cornbread salad and my husband ended up splitting it with me and we practically licked the bowl! He ordered the salmon over ratatouille but we were so full from everything that we packed it up and had it for dinner later - and we enjoyed every bite. Thanks to all for making one of our first outings in 2020 (which is weird to say in September) so memorable!

When we first went in at 5 we waited and waited while the staff had a meeting....shouldn't they have had the meeting BEFORE they opened. Our appetizer was not good, but our server saved the day and her service was wonderful. The meal was very good as well.

The Polynesian dinner was amazing and fun. We were celebrating our 20th Anniversary and had plans to be in Aruba this week. The dinner helped with the disappointment of not being able to travel Internationally.

We did patio seating for a lunch, with COVID guidelines being followed by AZUR. We tried the "salmon "burger (on brioche) with goat cheese and peach chutney toppings; a small side salad was fresh with a house balsamic -- done just right and yummie. We also tried"sea grits" - scallops, shrimp atop a cheese/pimiento grit serving touched with a very mild lobster sauce. All good, save for a too mild lobster sauce.

We have yet to be disappointed with Azur.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary with dinner on the patio, which was the first time we had eaten out since March. It was very relaxed (well-ventilated with a fan), and the food was superb. Our server Brandon was very attentive. We were disappointed they were out of truffle fries, however.

Food was excellent. The pictures were VERY deceiving. Outdoor dinning is run down completely. Indoor dine area looked nicer. Service was ok NOT so great as expected. Would’ve preferred to just order take out from them.

Food and service was excellent. Hard to imagine a meal choice that would disappoint. Everyone in our group of 4 had a different selection. All were very happy with the results. On top of that we had live entertainment (Friday evening) provided by a talented guitarists/vocalist who covered many mellow acoustic classics. Perfect evening with friends on the patio at AZUR.

Great local place with a local feel. Not trying to be too big. The outdoor seating area was great. They had live music but it wasn't so live that you couldn't talk to anyone. The food was great with some combinations I had not had before.

This was our second visit from Shelbyville to this Lexington Restaurant. Once again, they hit it out of the park! Excellent, friendly service and outstanding food! We brought my in-laws which demonstrates my confidence in having a good experience. They enjoyed the dual pork chops, my wife, the mozzarella chicken, and I had the signature Bourbon fried chicken. All three were met with smiles and sounds of delight with each bite. We waddled away full and satisfied.

Our waiter was amazing and patio area very nice. My only complaint would be the mojito-I don't like when used with carbonated soda. But food was very good and special treat since our anniversary made it speical
