Good food and portions at a reasonable price.

Easy parking. There will be a wait if you go during prime time. It is worth the wait. Nice atmosphere. pleasant wait staff. I will go again.

...but the taste needs a bit more authentic flavors. First time there. We ordered a few Azorean (Portuguese) specialties and they looked good, food was OK but the taste wasn't quite convincing. Too bland and plain. I've been to Portugal and had the best fish and seafood from all over Europe and truly believe that Portuguese people know their fish,... More

I have driven by this place many times, and for once, actually made a plan to go. I was glad I did. Even though I chose a busy Friday night, the service was excellent and the food was even better. I chose Portuguese themed items from the menu (split Portuguese steak tips with my date, and two tapas - liguica... More

The service was excellent, the food, fabulous. This is one of my favorite places to have a late lunch after church on Sunday. There is plenty of parking, the restaurant is always clean and the staff has a wonderful disposition and attitude.

Hi Folks. My 13 year old niece actually chose this as her favorite - and she is Irish! This was the first time here for my wife and I. We loved the place. They had genuine Azorean Cuisine. I had never tasted it before, what a treat. I had the steak Azorean, Rachael's father had their take on stuffed shrimp... More

This is just a great restaurant. If you love Tapas this is the place for you and I recommend the Tapas Tower. Choose 6 different Tapas all of which are excellent, and they'll serve them on their version of the tower. The Cataplanas are absolutely awesome and served in a skillet. The drinks are also very good and they make... More

We loved stopping by to try the Azorean. We had the wonderful kale soup with sausage in it and the calamari in their casual bar area at a table. The calamari was great if you skip the hot peppers, on the side, which were a little much for me. We also tried so of the dinner choices but plan to... More

Cold February night, the allure of a good seafood stew and friends was enough to get us back to the Azorean for the first time in a few years. Enjoyed the haddock and sample of mushroom steak. There was a mix up in the order about the potatoes, but when served their home made fries were quite good. The Fisherman's... More
