Azurea at One Ocean Ratings and Reviews
My girlfriend went there for dinner as an impromptu date. We had never eaten here before, but we enjoy fine dining. We were blown away. The manager was amazing, bringing my girlfriend different wines to just try so she could find one she likes. The food was amazing, the presentation was perfect. And mind you, we showed up to the restaraunt at 9:00 pm... And we got the same service we would have received at 6:00pm. And that speaks volumes about a restaurant. Definitely going to be going here regularly now.
Business meal at One Ocean. Food is very good as well as service. Place was fairly empty for a Thursday night meal which actually helped with our dinner conversation - very quiet. My favorite fish place at the beach is Eleven South - Azurea is very good but not quite up to the standards set by Eleven South.
Azurea is close to our home and I chose to have my birthday dinner there on Monday evening. We had four people in our party and everyone got some kind of seafood. We started with salads we shared which were very fresh with light vinaigrette. I had asked for gluten free options in my reservation and the restaurant was very accommodating with this issue. Although we didn’t ask for bread our server Hannah brought it out including a gluten free basket. The best part of this was all the spreads they serve with the bread. There were some fabulous deserts along with a tray of truffles to pass around. Decaf cappuccino was a perfect close. Hannah was so accommodating and made the night a special occasion .
We picked the restaurant for our anniversary dinner. The food and service were excellent, very pleased with our dinner.
The disappointment of the evening was the noise level. The lounge is next to the dining area and there is nothing blocking the noise and it was very loud in the bar that night.
The noise level is very high. The meal was mixed, the tomato salad was not very good as the tomatoes were not ripe and hard. The rest of the meal was very good. However my credit card was charged 3 times and I have yet to receive a call back from the manager.
Excellent service and really good food on NYE 2017-2018. I flagged my difficult allergies with the restaurant during booking and all waiters were prepared and organised my pairing menu accordingly. My group of 4 enjoyed the food and wine and promptness of service all night. I highly recommend this place. Beautiful decor too.
We expected much more based on the reviews we had read. The food was average and overpriced in our opinion.
The service was worse-slow and several mistakes in parts of our orders eventhough it was not a busy night when we were there. We had a group of 7 and the concerns very universal after a 3 hour prolonged experience with only one round of drinks in a group with several seniors.
Even worse, we were charged a mandatory gratuity for this size group although we were not told this when we made the reservation and it does not say this anywhere on the menu. The tip charge was 22% which is perhaps why our waiter was disengaged.
Afraid we will not hurry back.
A number of people in our birthday group enjoy choosing Azurea for their b'day luncheon. At this particular luncheon one in the group could not eat the soggy flatbread. I took my brisket and potato salad home so I could rinse off most of the salty/vinegary dressing on the potatoes and mix in Greek yogurt and wipe off most of the sauce off the beef.
We were all surprised to see that the added tip was 22%! Some in the group have already secretly opted out when One Ocean is chosen. I must now agree.
Azurea is usually over-the-top special, but this time they really missed the mark. My advice is don't go during the holidays if you are not in a party as the staff is stretched too thin. We went for over 25 minutes with our first course empty plates sitting in front of us and no sign of our waitress. Not that it's a big deal to pour my own champagne, but for the restaurant mark-up I feel like I'm paying for that service. I marked only good for the food this time as I ordered the Bouillabaisse, wanting some nice broth with my seafood. Theirs should be called porridge as it has so much cous cous it is not even served with a spoon. Very disappointing, but my Veuve Cliquot was delicious and the moon rising over the Ocean was lovely.
Honestly, we were disappointed with the food. The amuse bouch was drowning in sauce and one dimensional in flavor, not to mention soggy since it was obvious the wonton wrapper had sat in the sauce for some time. I got the James Beard nominated entree but it arrived terribly overcooked and didn't boast any unique flavors that made it memorable either. They didn't have the only dessert I wanted that was listed on the menu but made up for it by comping us for a substitute. The service was perfection and atmosphere was beautiful. I just think this is a place that gets a lot of business from people who don't really know what good food actually tastes like because they're too focused on getting their money's worth with dishes that are overdone and too heavy compared to fresh and refined. I honestly can't recommend this at all, especially considering the exceptionally high prices charged for what you get on the plate.
We were worried that the restaurant would not be open during the first night of our trip. It reopened at 6 pm on first night at One Ocean. Which so happened to be our 21st wedding anniversary. Azurea welcomed us with a card signed by the staff. Our server Hannah remembered us from our first visit August 2016. There is a review for that first dining experience also. We started with the Ceasar salad and Mayport bbq shrimp and grits. The salad is a work of art and delicious. The shrimp and grits were bit different from other shrimp and grits I had before. The grits were smooth and shrimp bbq was amazing. My wife had the Char for her entree she wanted the Salmon but that was not available. Hannah recommended the Char instead not as fatty as the Salmon. She was right it was simply delicious with spinach. I had the Sea Bass which I had before. I love the way the chef cooks the Sea Bass (Perfect) not dry or hard. I truly recommend Azurea especially now the kitchen as completed renovations the chef will probably go to another level. Ask for Hannah, she is professional, and knowledgeable on the wine list and the menu.
My experience as Azurea can only be described as mind-blowing. I was taken here by my fiancée for my birthday. I knew it was a luxury restaurant but this was a step above any other “luxury” offerings I’ve enjoyed yet in the Jacksonville area. The service experience made me feel like a foreign dignitary! The servers and waiting staff were so professional and paid such careful attention to detail, checking in just at the right moments.
The appetizers and entrees were perfect. I happen to LOVE Italian, so one standout was Chef Jay Mendoza’s Eggplant Meatballs. The Marinara sauce rivaled any number of standout East Coast Italian joints from Miami to NYC. This dish was so succulent and creative – just perfection on a plate!
The entire crew also came out to sing me happy birthday and deliver a colossal chocolate birthday cake with edible pearls, so huge and finely crafted it resembled the Leaning Tower of Pisa! It was opulent and left me speechless.
Overall it was beyond fantastic! I highly recommend One Ocean for a truly special experience for any special occasion -AS
This was our 2nd time to Azurea, our first was in June 2017. The server remembered us as one in our party had a number of food allergies. We had 6 people in our party this time. The server was very professional in handling the allergies issue for 4 of our 6 people and discrete. All the food was fabulous in taste and presentation. With significant deviations from the menu description the food was very flavorful and cooked to everyone's satisfaction. The pace of the meal was relaxed from the chef's appetizer to desert and coffee. We will come here every time we are in Florida.
We got together for "ladies' lunch" to celebrate our birthdays, which are two weeks apart. The food was delicious, the ambiance was very pleasant, and the server was friendly and efficient. I can definitely recommend Ocean One Azurea for a special lunch outing!
