This place was recommended by the staff of the hotel we were staying at. We had dinner here and to me, it was just ok. It's not that the food was bad or anything, but i wasn't too impressed by it, not for the price anyway. My gf enjoyed her meal a lot more than I enjoyed mine, so maybe... More

After a day of driving up CA Route #1, we were ready for an early dinner. Cove Azur was recommended to us by our hotel. Clam chowder was very good with plenty of clams and a bit of a different taste by being seasoned with thyme. I had the salmon stuffed with crab which was very good and my wife... More

Fine dining setting. Beautiful presentation. The food was good, could be a bit better for the price but still good. The clam chowder was a bit heavy on the rosemary but good.

We enjoyed a great meal except that 40 noisy bicyclists were also in the restaurant at the time and accommodatting them really stretched the wait staff

Surprised with such a random pick! Driving through town, hungry, first place across the street from the BBQ. Nice variety of food, tons of beer and wine choices. Prices and atmosphere are good!

With little choice, and only staying the night - I crossed my fingers and was pleasantly surprised. The service was great. Clam chowder was so good. Lentil soup was great, too. Our family dined on new york strip, pasta, and salmon.

We come to Gualala once a year. We normally eat at Cove Azule because it is a nice restaurant that has the most reasonable prices of all the restaurants in town. The view is great, the food is good, and it is a relaxing meal when we come here. I have had fish and chips here (very good) and this... More

We enjoyed dinner and drinks at Cove Azul during our visit to Gualala. The steaks- mine with pasilla pepper cream sauce (to die for) and my husbands was Marsala with mushrooms. Veggies were not overcooked and the mashed potatoes were delicious. The wait staff is few, but manage the room as pros. We ordered special drinks that were a bargain... More
