Wonderful contemporary French restaurant on Montrose Blvd. The food is fantastic, and the waitstaff is very helpful; will not disappoint.

Interesting take on bouillabaisse. Not authentic French recipe but very well done. We elected to eat on the patio (curbside) fearing the worst, but surprised traffic was not too distracting. Waitress, Amanda, was on top of her game and is the biggest single reason to return to Café Azur.

We took the opportunity of 1000 points and went to Cafe Azur at 5:45 on a Sunday...after Thanksgiving. It was quiet but we took the advantage. The food was excellent, the drinks very nice and perfectly made. The atmosphere was very nice and the service was excellent. Very happy having made the choice of this restaurant tonite. We will definitely be back.

What a delightful find. Excellent craft cocktails and wine list. We completely enjoyed the octopus appetizer (tender and flavorful) and the cheese plate. The scallops, ravioli, and shrimp were all wonderful. The decor is very well executed. Our server Herman was very attentive and responsive to our every wish. Wish we lived in Houston so that we could visit more often. Looking forward to our next trip in December.

Let me start by saying that i used to love this place. That said, it's the second time that i have a sub par dinner. Either cold or salty or poor service or under served (our waiter was the barman who turned out he wasn't a barman but was covering for the barman) The food was just ok and some of it too salty. We bumped into a couple that we know very well and they complained they couldn't eat their dinner because it was way too salty. The manager needs to get their act together, it's a great place with a great menu but very spotty execution.

If you go, you have to try the perfect egg. It is like hollandaise sauce almost. very rich, very tasty!!! Three of us went and we had appetizers of Mussels, Tartare and the Perfect Egg . No doggy bag needed!

Entrees- Bouillabaisse, duck and scallops. All wonderful. But choosing those was difficult - they had to compete with Steak Frites, Tenderloin with Foie Gras, Halibut...

We loved it.

Excellent food in a casual setting. Service was attentive and prompt. The dishes were well prepared and showed attention to detail. I requested low salt in a beef burgundy and they made a perfect dish which I could thoroughly enjoy. Does have a close feel as the tables are relatively next to each other but we did not feel cramped. Our meal was on the expensive side for lunch but we ordered among the most expensive items on the menu. This will be on our special list to go back. Parking is tight but they do have valet.

Food was quite good, atmosphere was very nice. Prices on food were reasonable considering the cuisine. We bought a bottle of Chablis upon recommendation of the staff and the price was a surprise, but that was my fault for not asking.
Service staff was very friendly but the table service could have been better.

This is a pleasant addition to the many French restaurants in Houston. The cuisine is much more of the new style French using unusual ingredients in a very French way. The ambiance and the general feel of the restaurant was welcoming. We sat upstairs outside which was nice as it was out of the street noise and not too many diners or large parties. The old oak provides a nice canopy and is lit at night. The menu was interesting with choices such as the "perfect egg" and the fois gras taco. We had both, and they were great. My husband had the veal tenderloin which was cooked to perfection and had a thatch of dill on it. We were mystified by this, as the amount of dill which is fresh and bright but maybe a tad too much. Also, it came with black garlic purée which we initially couldn't identify but when the owner came by we were told it was squid ink. My dish was the lobster ravioli which came in an unctuous sauce and perfectly prepared. We had a bottle of Rhone wine which was one of their special bottles sold for 30$ on the weekend days. It was very acceptable. The one downside I would say was the service, which although the waiter was trying hard, was not polished. He couldn't give us detailed information about the food or the wine when asked up front (to his credit, he didn't try to fake it, but did ask, as requested.) He was unaware of the wine special and needed to be prompted to tell us about special dishes. He seemed to appear at awkward times and forgot to give us bread plates. Also, we tried to tell him we wanted to take our time, but our appetizers appeared almost instantaneously which clued us in to the fact that maybe everything else we ordered might follow close behind and so delayed our entrees accordingly. We had a very nice evening ending with a lovely chat with the Brazilian owner who was gracious and the chef in the entry bidding us "Adieu".

The inside colors are very nice with whites and blues. You feel like you are sitting in a seaside coastal town which is a fun departure from the Houston norm. We started with the Steak Tartare which was very fresh and simple. I had the Scallops which were done perfect and my husband had the fish which was good but not outstanding. Our dessert was the homemade ice cream prepared table side with liquid nitrogen so it was a blast to watch and an excellent ending. It was my birthday, and my sister who lives in Virginia surprised me with a call which the manager came to the table with the phone. It was nice of her (the manager) to take time to do. The menu is small so don't go looking for pages and pages of choices and don't go if you want food falling off your plate and need 3 takeout boxes. It that is your idea of value and a good dinner look else where. If you are looking for a nice European dinning experience set in the heart of Montrose then this is one we recommend.

some of the appetizers were quite expensive(gravlax-16.00 and octopus-24.00!!). Both were 4/5. the Martinis were distressingly small. Overall the food was tasty although he veal was only 3/5 and the bouilliabase had too much Pernod. Others at the table thought it was fine. There is better out there

We had an amazing waiter his attention to us was amazing. my complain will have to be that he failed to explain that one of our dishes came with the same salad we order separately. We had double salads. I also thought since we shared our dishes he also could've suggested that the portion wasn't big enough to share among 4 Portions are very small
There was hardly anyone that day Tuesday at 1 so I cannot say anything about ambiance. It's a cute place very open and fresh feeling and no to bad wine list.
