“Great Rack of Lamb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

This restaurant has it all. Great ambiance, superior and attentive service, most of all terrific food. The rack of lamb with pistachio was out of this world. A little pricey, but worth it. Great views of the ocean. My wife spilled a glass of water all over me and the table, and our waitress swooped in and replaced the whole table in 30 seconds.

“Above and beyond”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

I don't usually write up reviews when traveling close to home, but spend a couple of days at Revel with my brother and was really impressed by Azure. The food was all excellent (try especially the grand marnier souffle dessert), and the service went above and beyond. When we came back for a 2nd night we received a delicious appetizer, compliments of the chef. The location is far enough from the casino floor to be a calm oasis of sorts, right on the ocean. Great food, atmosphere, and service--what more could you want!

“Terrific restaurant. Period.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

I am usually disappointed by food outside of NYC (I know I will get hate mail for that). For instance, Vegas has all these big name (some NYC based) restaurants that are poor imitations of the original. As a result, I had low expectations going in to Azure. Boy was a provincial. Azure had a wonderful modern decor and even though there were some big celebrations going on, the rooms were not overly loud. We had an amazing view of the beach and Atlantic, as well as the fishing boats going in and out of the channel. The cocktails were excellent too. It was the food, though that really surprised me. The Dover sole was as good as Le Cirque. The pasta we had, perfectly cooked. Deserts--terrific. And the staff, unbelievably friendly. One hostess ran up the long staircase on to the casino floor to find us so that she could return my 7 year old's sweater to her. Nice. If you are in AC. Go. Period.

“Best of Boardwalk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Azure is definitely the best dining experience in any of the Atlantic City casinos. The menu offers a variety of selections that are not only innovative creations with fresh ingredients that are outstanding in flavor, but are also beautifly presented. The entire serving staff {no matter their title} is welcoming,professional, efficient and attentive without being intrusive. The server from our previous visit { 3 months ago} not only remembered us but where we sat. The attention to personal tastes and needs is impressive. My wife is a vegan and the kitchen had a record of her meal on that previous visit and made sure she was accomadated with a different selection this visit. If there are any special dietary restictions notify Keven the general manager if possible beforehand and the kitchen will make the needed adjustments. What a pleasure to deal with such a level of professionalism with no attitude. This has become our favorite A.C. retaurant.

“Sometimes you just get lucky”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We were on a getaway weekend at Revel and to keep things simple ate at Azure. What a treat we were in for not realizing it was a great fish restaurant which has to be the most difficult kind of food to serve. Not Le Bernardin but much better than many restaurants.

We were taken to a nice table with a view of the boardwalk and ocean lit at night. The couple next to us was just finishing up so we quickly had a quiet private table. At first the service seemed a bit rushed and I wondered if the goal was to get you out on the casino floor as quickly as possible. Our server picked up on it right away and things slowed down to an enjoyable pace. The staff in the restaurant was clearly a notch above other staff in the hotel. They were attentive and helpful making recommendations and informing us about dishes we asked about.

One flaw was our appetizers came before the bottle of wine we ordered came to the table. They still get credit because the server made a bee line to the waiter to rushed over to the sommelier and the wine was our table in about sixty seconds. We found a nice moderate priced wine, always good to know they are on the menu.

With so many restaurants pumping up the noise level and adding TV or video it was nice to be in restaurant with a normal sound level to create a refined or elegant feel with just the right light and decor.

The dishes were very good, we shared grilled octopus for a starter that was tender and flavorful. My wife's dish of halibut was the winner with a flavorful broth.

All in all a much better dining experience than we expected and very much enjoyed our dinner there.
