    Monday night shrimp dinner specials are amazing--and a great value. There are many choices, and we all found one we liked. The olives and bread served at the beginning of the meal are a nice start to the meal. The drinks are reasonably priced and there's a nice selection of wines by the glass. Staff were friendly and fun--we have a fun evening.

    Food was good and our waiter was super nice but definitely too busy to give our table much attention. I wanted to order a glass of wine but was finished my meal before we could get his attention and we had to wave him down because one of us had ordered wine before we were served but it never came. Delays for everything we asked for. I appreciate that places are short of help but maybe limit the number of guests seated.

    I’ve dined here many times and usually enjoy it a lot. This time we were kind of disappointed. Two had the seafood special and found the portions to be very small. I ordered the chicken and waffles and found there was way too much waffle and their piece of chicken was so small. One other ordered the crab cake and was disappointed to hear they had neither cocktail or tartar sauce.. sorry because I really have liked this restaurant.

    Cafe Azafran is incredible. The food, rockfish in my case was cooked to perfection! It was perfectly plated with mixed vegetables, cauliflower, carrots, brussel sprouts, surrounded by mussles in the shells. The food was to die for! The waiter was super courteous suggesting a semi dry white wine to compliment our food. It quickly became THE restaurant I will frequent when I am in the area!

    The service excellent. The menu had a nice variety of small plates and large. The salads were large enough for a dinner if not too hungry. I had the salad nicoise. This salad was enough to be shared by a table of 6 for an appetizer. I liked that you could have shrimp, tuna ,or scallops on the salad. Yes, we would go again.

    We really like this restaurant and eat here often. The food at this visit was excellent. We went on Tuesday tapas night where some, not all, of their regular tapas are $10 (used to be $8). We are disappointed the tacos are not included. They are phenomenal, but $17 for two tacos is pretty steep. The potatoes Bravas was excellent, as was the garlic shrimp and the clams. The mussels were plentiful but could have had a little more flavor in the broth. My husband had the duck entree which was delicious. The food and service are always very good and we enjoy eating out on the heated back porch. Very cute room. Our only concern is that some of the prices have gone up a lot. Perhaps adding a small salad to the regular priced entrees would soften the blow a bit. Thank you! We will be back.

    “Outdoor seating” on back porch is really within walls covered with plastic sheeting. Heaters make it warm, but no ventilation. For those of us who were told it was out dooa seating, I was disappointed and we wore our masks until served and then took our desserts home to consume. Portions were huge, so ended up taking more home. Waiter friendly, but could have been more efficient in timeline the food delivery to the table.

    Whenever we are in Rehoboth, this place is a must for us! We love Steak Night on Thursday Nights. The filet is just enough, served with delicious mashed potatoes, and asparagus. You also get a salad and a glass of wine for $29.00. I have Celiac Disease and this place is very careful preparing my meal. Great restaurant!

    There is obviously a chef in the kitchen here who has flashes of brilliance and it shows - and tastes. My last meal was a seared duck breast with a lingonberry and balsamic reduction paired with goat cheese mashed potatoes and caramelized carrots. Sublime.

    Cafe Azafran is consistently known for good food and service. We were a table of 4 and everyone enjoyed their meals. The only complaint tonight is that we were on the back patio and it was chilly. They do not have their outdoor heating set up yet. It was warmer however than it was inside!
