    The food and service were wonderful. However there was nobody to greet diners on arrival. We had a 7:30 reservation but waited over 1/2 hour for our table: it was 15 minutes before anyone even acknowledged our presence. Then another couple arrived after us and were seated immediately. Please improve your process for greeting and seating diners!

    Have been wanting to try this place since moving to Delaware 18 months ago. We were not disappointed. Great selection of fresh, well-prepared small plates was just the ticket for four us to have an enjoyable evening.

    Quite simply one of the best meals I have ever eaten, I had duck breast with carrots and mashed potato as my entree, I loved every bite of it and look forward to going back again the next time I’m in Rehoboth Beach

    What a lovely dinner we had! Cafe Azafran checked off all of our boxes... we wanted cozy, quaint, and quiet with excellent food and service. There was a special $30 three-course meal offer which was a spectacular value for such excellent food. We had wonderful seafood bisque first, then garlic shrimp, and also scallops as the second course followed by bouillabaisse and also a seafood platter for the third course. Everything was brought out fresh and hot, and at the proper timing. The place was packed, yet the tables turned over with excellent precision so no one felt rushed and no one had to wait.

    This was our second time ordering the three-course prix fixe Friday night seafood special, and it was outstanding again. We try to order different selections for each course and they have all been so delicious! We highly recommend Cafe Azafran any day of the week!

    Had their Prix fixe dinner on New Year’s Eve and enjoyed the quality of the meals and nice wine selections. Service was prompt, friendly and helpful as always. Piano player and jazz singer set the mood just right for the evening, and the ambiance was sophisticated yet relaxed, as always.

    We arrived in time for our reservation, and there was one tiny table, available inside, right behind where they have a keyboard player and annoyingly loud singer set up. It is a very small building. Don’t have music like this. It really ruins the ambience. Were then given the option to sit outside in the heated outdoor space, which was freezing. I imagine they were short staffed. Took a very long time to get drinks and our order. Never brought our appetizer and one hour later, they brought our food. Not impressed.

    We had gone to enjoy the steak special for off season on Thursdays and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food, and the food and wine combination was wonderful! Also, Matt is the most talented manager and server in Rehoboth Beach. However, we had booked for the evening with the musical entertainment but the guests in the rear dining room were too chatty for us to enjoy the music. This was not an Azafran issue - but I hope future guests coming in Thursdays realize it’s a musical evening and they should respect the audience trying to enjoy it. Food and service were great!

    Azafran is without doubt my favorite restaurant in Rehoboth Beach. None of the others come close. The singer, Holly and her accompanist are outstanding, so much fun and so enjoyable. In my view not a place for family conversation at the table. It’s a place to relax enjoy the entertainment but not to have a family conversation.

    Cafe Azafran continues to provide excellent food and service. Two of us ate a tapas selection with a salad. The tapas are small plates with a main attraction and no sides. I had the baby lamb chops (2 small) which were cooked to perfection and I also had the beet salad which was delicious and not overly dressed. The other tapas order was sea scallops (6 good sized) and they had the grilled Caesar salad which presented well but not as tasty as previously ordered when it was whole leaves not chopped. Other 2 diners had full meals which they raved about and finished completely. We were seated in back room with only one other table occupied but we could hear the conversation clearly. Service was flawless and cocktails tasty and beautifully made.
