Vegetarian/vegan appetizers were delicious. But unfortunately we were disappointed by the vegetarian entrees. It’s great that they have vegetarian options, but if you’re not with a group of meat eaters (who to be fair, we’re proclaiming how delicious it was) you may want to seek a different restaurant which has more of a focus on the vegetarian options. Otherwise, nice ambience and certainly can see why people love this place, just wasn’t the right fit for these two vegetarians.

This was our first time eating at Bistro DeAzure, that was a recommendation from a friend. My wife and I could not have been happier with the whole experience. From the beginning of being seated to the end of the meal, we enjoyed ourselves. Needless to say this will not be our last time there. Bob A.

Gorgeous presentation of creative twists on classic French dishes, though served in perfectly hearty—not overwhleming—proportions. It's the perfect ambiance for a special night out, with lovely, knowledgable, friendly staff. I love the choice of BYOB or selection of local wines or special non-alcoholic cocktails. Truly a gem that is worth revisiting frequently for seasonal updates to the prix fixe menu.

Perhaps the best BYOB restaurant in northern New Jersey. Every dish is excellent. The service is very good. I've been there many times and will be there many more times. Bistro D'Azur is a favorite among favorites.

Everything was perfect. In these Covid times, cleanliness and safety was obviously paramount and the staff was wearing masks consistently. Staff is very well trained and welcoming, attentive without being obtrusive (like in a French restaurant). We were welcome for our birthday(s) with a little taste of bubbly. The restaurant's decor is clean and open with high ceilings. Music was present but not obtrusive. The food was generously portioned. We had salad, mussels, fish, salmon, lamb, scallops, octopus and everything was very fresh and well balanced. Presentation is flawless. BYO or get their suggested selection (which looked great but we had brought our own) delivered.

Our meal was enjoyable and memorable. A real treat. We were left plenty full but not stuffed and sleepy.

While the price, and specificity of the menu, makes it an unlikely daily/weekly stop, we will absolutely make Bistro d'Azur a regular staple of our special outings, especially now that we tend to go out less. Would be a perfect business lunch setting as well.

Four of us really enjoyed a very special Wednesday night at this outstanding byo restaurant. The dining room is beautiful, the food quality and presentation is impeccable and the service is efficient, which is quite an accomplishment in these covid times. We opted for inside, there is outside dining also. Will not hesitate to return.

We visited Bistro D'Azur for the second time last night with my wife and her twin sister, who were celebrating their 60th birthdays. Food and service were outstanding. My only nit would be that I had written a note to the restaurant mentioning that fact and asking that they place candles on their desserts. I guess its probably my fault for not reminding them - but normally I wouldn't have to do that - most restaurants get that right. We'll be back but if they get to see this just mention that they should read the notes/requests that diners make through Opentable if they get a chance. It was not overwhelmingly busy so I wouldn't say that was the reason - it probably just fell through the cracks. Again, food and service overall was excellent.

Tremendous new find. Beautiful presentations. The flavors all really worked....impressive on paper but, incredibly successful on the palate. Thrilled to discover an artist in the kitchen! Oh yes.....besides BYOB....they make fantastic artisan Non-Alcoholic drinks that lend themselves to easy conversion with an appropriate airplane bottle of something complimentary!!

Food was very well prepared and had interesting choices and flavorings. The two of us had 3 appetizers -one each and then we split the third. A little pricey, but portions are good and we took home enough food for tonight's dinner at home so it was worth the extra money.

We are repeat customers as the food is exquisite, service is personable and professional and it is a beautiful restaurant. Love their music selection too!

We love their prix-fixe menus - instead of having a 100 item menu, the chef makes delicious appetizers and entrées with fresh Ingredients and flair.

Top notch!

The whole experience was wonderful. The place is beautiful and romantic. It does remind you of a bistro in France. The food was really delicious from the fresh baked bread to the decaf espresso and everything in between. My wife and I are defiantly coming back, The service was great but the place was slightly understaffed so the two waiters in the place had to run but were still kind and helpful. Go here people!

We can’t say enough good things about this place. Food was outstanding!! We got the lobster crepe, octopus, lamb rib chops, and duck. 10/10 for all of our plates! City quality dining in a suburban town. Can’t beat it! One of the best meals we have had in a long time.

We ate outside on a warm summer evening. They've done a very nice job with the outdoor seating despite the fact that the "view" is of a parking lot ... but first mountain in the background. We had salads and the salmon entree - excellent but a little salty. Not cheap but BYOB (though they also have wines from a local NJ winery).

I'm so happy to have discovered this place. I'll definitely be back when I'm in Maplewood. Been looking for a new "go to" place and this is it for me. Love the Vegan menu too. It was very nice to meet the owner Mary Conway. So glad this bistro survived the pandemic, esp. as I was getting tired of the local offerings restaurant-wise! This place is pretty new and really wonderful.

The food was fantastic! Beautiful place! Friendly waiters. No one rushed us. The music playing was lovely. The tables were spaced nicely so we didn’t feel crowded (we ate inside). We had duck and lamp chops which were both cooked to perfection! Loved the Lobster Crepe Appetizer. Gelato just hit the spot at the end of the meal. We’ll be back!

I received a call prior to coming to my reservation.. I booked a 9:15PM reservation and they called me to see if I could come early! It made me feel as they would close early and they didn’t want to take my booked reservation.. I said I couldn’t but they still took my 9:15

Place was awesome! It’s BYOB
They have a prefix menu so take a look before you come in , my only concern was that the soup was served in a unflattering way! It looked unappetizing however it was delicious, I pay attention to detail and I think this is important when serving in a luxury restaurant! The lambs were perfect , and the octopus was tasty! I have no complains.. I would come again !
