About AZUR Restaurant & Patio

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.

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.

AZUR was a great experience, one of the finer places to eat or that I have ate at since moving to Lexington, Tho the service in the beginning wasn’t quite to the Tee due to our sever have multiple tables.. the food and presentation were awesome, and the special made this a solid food outing.

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.

It was great as always. A bit more busy than normally and therefore more noise. However, it did not impact the quality of food or service. Our server was great and accommodated our requests wonderfully! Highly recommended.

Normally I am satisfied at AZUR but I got a very bad piece of fish either under cooked or over cooked. It was hard to tell. I should have sent it back but didn’t have time.

When my associate and I arrived at Azur at noon on Saturday for this reservation, the restaurant was closed and dark, with no notice on the door about why they were not open. This was embarrassing to me, as I had set up the meeting.

Traveling thru Lexington and tired,realized this was one of the places we could walk to. The food was well rated and it looked nice so we took a gamble. Amazing wait staff were very attentive. The place was packed and as a bonus there was a very good live jazz trio. My gluten free partner was able to trade out the mac and cheese with his incredible pork chop for Brussel sprouts with garlic. I had tenderloin medallions, which were perfectly done exactly as i like them. Good extensive wine list. After dinner my partner got a flight of local Kentucky bourbons, which he thoroughly enjoyed. What a great surprise when a travel necessity turns out to be a great date night!

It was a very busy night, perhaps due to a citywide restaurant week. We opted for the specials. The fried chicken was terribly undercooked and was comped by the restaurant. The roast beef entree was "ok".

The room is small and could not handle the music venue. Way too loud. We probably will not return.

Went for the Comfort Food Week and had fried chicken which was tasty and moist, if a bit over cooked. Spouse had pot roast which she reported was excellent. The oysters Rockefeller appetizer was perfect and the desert of peach and blackberry cobbler a la mode was to die for. Service was excellent. We will return for their regular menu as it’s always a treat.

This was our first visit to Azur and we'll definitely be back! We were attracted by the "Comfort Week" special and enjoyed one meal from that menu and one meal off the regular menu. Mike did an outstanding job educating us on Azur, its menu and made excellent recommendations.

Azur is our go-to place for some of the best food in this state! We recently celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary over dinner at Azur. I did not notify any of the staff that we were celebrating that night, I didn't need to - as we're always treated in a special way there. Jeremy and the kitchen team do an absolutely phenomenal job with the food. We've traveled the world over, and I'm shocked Jeremy doesn't have a Michelin star yet!

The food was good but really pretty average. I had the burger and truffle fries and my husband had the bourbon fried chicken which was tasty but the portion of chicken was very small. What we were really disappointed about was being charged $24 for two margaritas. We have eaten at many very nice restaurants and any time we paid more than $10 for a margarita, it was because it was a specialty drink of some sort. There were no prices on the menu, the server did not tell us the price of the drink so we were very surprised when we received the bill. We will not be back.

Definitely my favorite restaurant in Lexington. They just do everything right. They have a changing menu but you can always be sure they'll have a delicious and creative chicken, steak and fish dish. They have a good deal of scratch sides that are amazing. Decent wine and beer selection. A great patio weather allowing. Unobtrusive live music. Always excellent service. This is clearly a place where great serivce is emphasized by management. A great place where you can show up in a suit or jeans and be comfortable. Perhaps a tad pricey for some but you will never be disappointed with food, service or ambiance.

Overall our group very much enjoyed our New Year’s Eve gathering. Service was a little slow, but the place was packed so that was probably a factor. Will definitely return for a “normal” dinner.

We visit Azur regularly, but this time was a disaster. 2 of the 4 meals were cold, 1 lukewarm. Sent back 2, they came back only lukewarm. At $160 for 1 appetizer, 4 entrees and 2 glasses of wine- we won’t be going back anytime soon. So disappointing.
