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.

We were in town for a family event and found this restaurant in a small strip mall a short distance from our hotel. What a find! Food and service at our dinner were excellent. The menu was so inviting that we went back the next night for dinner and ordered something entirely different. It was excellent once again. The presentation of the food was also outstanding.

Food is always very good and the staff is excellent with both service and recommendations. great place to take a group as their menu offers so many different selections. If you like music, they have it outside on their patio, or as we did you can sit inside and have a quiet dinner.

We were in town for a day at Keeneland and picked Azur because of the great reviews and close proximity to our hotel. First, it is in a strip mall which was concerning. We sat inside and the ambiance is just ok. We waited 5 mins for anyone to come to our table. We then ordered drinks/appetizer (meatballs were delicious) and we had to go grab silverware from other tables. The meals were good, but not great. For over $100 per couple I expect a great meal, and service. When the server was at our table she was very friendly but we just had to wait so long.

We had friends from out of town, and after a busy day at Keeneland we were looking forward to a nice evening. Azur did not disappoint! Although we were surprised to find it in a strip mall, once inside the feeling was unique. Live music, tables a bit too crowded, great service and delicious food. Will definitely return. PS I tried a rack of elk, which was pricy but AMAZING.

It had been 4 or so years since we’ve been here, we both had different specials. My Snapper dish was outstanding and my wife had a pasta dish that was good. The atmosphere was vibrant with just the right amount of background chatter so you could talk comfortably with your dinner partner. We will be back soon and with more frequency!

Azur never disappoints. The waiter was attentive, but not invasive on our conversation. Food was excellent and elegantly prepared. The wine was enjoyable and the overall experience just what was needed after a stressful day. Thank you Azur!!

As usual, the food was outstanding! I had the sea grits, something I’ve been wanting to try for a while, and my husband had an Ono special. He couldn’t stop talking about how great it was. We split an order of the meatballs for an appetizer and they were delicious. We were only left hoping the server would have brought out some bread to sop up all the extra sauce though. This is consistently one of our go-to date night spots. Always a hit with locals and out of town visitors as well.

This was our first visit, and we were greeted warmly at the door, and promptly seated. The ambiance is modern & elegant. Service was exceptional. Cody was our server, and he took great care of us. He was there anytime we needed anything, but not intrusive. He gave us the specials for the evening - and they were tempting, but we ultimately went with some menu favorites recommended by a friend. The Fried Chicken is the best in Lexington. If I had a biscuit I wouldn't have left a drop of gravy on my plate. The cornbread was delicious, mind you. My husband ordered the Mozzarella Chicken wrapped in Prosciutto. Both were plated so elegantly. In fact, every dish that went out to a nearby table looked like a work of art. I was particularly impressed that Cody took the time to explain their loyalty program and sign us up. We didn't have to do a thing. Finally, the value is exceptional here. You would easily pay more for food of this caliber at any other restaurant. This visit was a special occasion, our anniversary. We'll definitely be back very soon!

Both entrees were delicious, but most noticeable both were served hot. The bourbon fried chicken was so tender, cut with a fork tender and it was boneless.
I was not a fan of the brown gravy that totally covered the fresh green beans and mashed potatoes that were hiding under the chicken. The gravy was thick and pastie tasting.
The meatball entree was flavorful, the dish could have used a 1/2 cup more sauce.

We brought our Atlanta adult children and their two and five year old at prime dining time on Friday night. Azur’s food was certainly comparable to their standards especially since they enjoy unique Southern tastes, we thought. Azure did not disappoint!! The appetizers and entrees were exquisite as well as their signature drinks , but the most pleasant surprise was our excellent waiter who didn’t miss an opportunity to refresh our table. This was a tough gig for a waiter and we were wowed by his ease in meeting our needs. Kudos to this fine dining establishment. We’re glad to have you in our Lexington repertoire!

My fiance ordered filet medallions and they were very fatty. Our server was so kind and took it off the bill. We usually do not complain about anything at restaurants but he was very nice to us about it. My pasta was delicious as well as the margaritas. They had live piano and singing and the music was wonderful. Good date night spot. There were also families there and it was a nice place but good family place as well.

Noise level in the restaurant is very loud. Sent my steak back and really wasn't cooked as I ordered when it came back, chose to get over it. My husband had almost finished his meal when it arrived so ate the vegetables. Two other tables sent their steaks back. Server left our bottle of wine but never refilled our glasses. He did refill our water when he was making rounds. He more concerned about people he knew in the restaurant.

Six of us eat lunch out together every three months. This was the first time we eat together at Azur's. We were there on a Monday and almost had the restaurant to ourselves. Everyone liked their entre, and the same for desserts. We lingered for a long time, and felt no pressure to leave. Thank you to Azur's for a very pleasant experience.

This was our first time to Azur and Brandon was our server. It was a relaxing atmosphere. Brandon explained the specials but we ended up having the Mozzarella Chicken and the Shrimp. We also had the cheese plate with salads. Each course was unique and enjoyable. The house salad and dressing were abolosultey amazing. When it came to our entrees, the portions were a decent size, neither of us could finish our entrees after having the cheese tray and salads. After having such great experiences with the other courses, we finished with the Bread Pudding. We bragged about our meal to friends that evening and at work. Thank you for a great meal, we will be back for sure.

Finally made it back to Azur for date night on a recent Saturday. We were regulars when they opened and the atmosphere and their food is still excellent. We shared our rib eye and cauliflower "steak" entrees at the table and found everything delightful. Kudos to Chef Jeramie and the kitchen staff. We also enjoyed the acoustic guitarist - he had a perfect song list. The wine selection is good - our Sonoma County Cab was top notch. Also a thank you to Doug - The wait staff is very attentive and non-intrusive. We will not wait so long for our next visit.

Been about 3 or 4 times. The food is always excellent and the cocktails are pretty good too. It is a bit pricey, but totally worth it if you can swing it. Oh, and they switch up their menu fairly often so chances are you'll find something new to love each time you go.
