    I think Bistro d'Azur is my new favorite restaurant. The food is delicious, the menu has many great choices and the restaurant is lovely. My only complaint about our dinner is that it was a bit too rushed. This was a four course Valentine's Day dinner, and our meal was an hour and a half long. For the money we spent and the number of courses I would have expected a more leisurely pace.

    Another stellar meal at Bistro, menu choices are great and the food is excellent, probably one of the best restaurant around and certainly rivaling the high dining in NJ. Everything was delicious from starter to dessert. We will be back (soon)

    Excellent experience. The hostess was friendly and took time to ask my wife how she was feeling because she is very pregnant. The service was excellent and they were very attentive. Food was exceptional! I had the lamb shank and it was falling off the bone tender. My wife had the parapadelle and it was very good. It’s BYOB but they had mocktails which were very good. Would definitely be going back and recommend it highly

I have been to so many restaurants in the US and Europe and the cuisine and experience was to tier. Thank you Bistro d’ Azur for a wonderful dining experience.

    We had such a lovely evening ... they make you feel like you're special, take your coats upon arrival (small but important detail). The tables are large and set far enough apart. The service is excellent. Our problem (not the restaurant's) is we individually and collectively have issues which prohibit us from fully enjoying the varied and interesting menu which is too bad for us. Everything sounds delicious and deducing from our two recent meals there, the food is top notch with careful attention to presentation and flavor details. A most enjoyable experience in a suburban town! Oh, and they have a terrific jazzy playlist which adds to the experience. Highly recommended.

    This place is our go to place when we want amazing food, great service and a lovely ambiance. So, Ofcourse we were here for New Years Eve dinner. Spend 3 hours over the most amazing 4-course meal. The food was perfect. I can never get over the lobster crepes and their steak is always cooked to perfection. The service is attentive without rushing us through our meal. Was a relaxed and wonderful New Years Eve.

    This is my new favorite North Jersey restaurant. Beautiful decor with well spaced tables. The food looked exquisite and tasted fabulous. My dining partner and I each chose the two course prix fixe option. Since we both chose the same first and second courses, we were unable to taste other dishes; however, the lobster crepe first course and the lavender honey roast duck were both outstanding. I had notified the restaurant that we were celebrating a birthday and they presented us with a lovely French champagne to toast the occasion. A very thoughtful touch! We will definitely return.

    The food, ambiance, and experience were all amazing. The service, however, could have been better at this price; our waiter was quite gruff and not very welcoming, and would expect more when coming for a prix fixe experience.

    The food can only be described as exquisite!! And this is true for the many different items(appetizer, main course and desert) we have enjoyed during many visits over the past few years. All items can also be described as deliciously creative. We have never been disappointed with anything. That is why we return regularly for dinner.

    I was looking forward to a price fixe as I find choosing easier from a limited first and second course all delicious to the eye. My wife, friends and I were not disappointed. The food is well presented and very tasty. We all had different dishes including venison, duck and swordfish. We had our own wine - a red burgundy; the choice of deserts were too amazing with lavender infused crème brûlée, home made ice cream and a cake with glazed cognac.
