“Great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We randomly picked this restaurant after an amazing day of sightseeing in La Jolla and watching the sea lions swim just yards away from people frolicking in the water nearby. We were so happy with our choice in this restaurant. As a family with 3 kids ranging from 10-14, we are not always sure how receptive restaurants may be to having young diners. This place was wonderful and made us feel completely comfortable. The food was excellent for all 5 of us and although it was crowded with people waiting for tables, we did not feel rushed at all. This is definitely a place with nice ambience and delicious, perfectly cooked steaks. We would definitely go back

“First class!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

This is one of the nicest restaurants you will find with great waterfront reviews. You can spend a lot of money here, but you don't have to. There are a number of very affordable items....my wife and i ended up sharing a large salad and 16 oz ribeye. The staff handled splitting both and there was no extra charge...would love to return here if ever in La Jolla again.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

We were 6 adults that were celebrating my wife's and my 49th wedding anniversary. We had a reservation for a waterfront table for 8:30 Saturday, August 10th. Our table was still occupied when we arrived so the restaurant gave us free appetizers at the bar while we were waiting.

I had the house special 24 oz. bone-in rib eye steak. It was one of the best I have ever eaten and we have eaten in many top steakhouses around the country. My wife had the filet mignon. The others had the organic chicken and scallops. Everybody was very happy with their meal. The service was very good. To our surprise they gave us a large free dessert plate with 3 different desserts on it and it said Happy 49th Anniversary. All in all it was a great experience.

“Service still not top notch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Had Prime Rib with the Caesar Wedge salad at dinner on August 8, 2013 and split a hot crab cake appetizer. Got a seat in second row so had a good view of the Ocean. Very good food but again service was not quite top notch. Head server was Judy and this restaurant uses the method of others to help the server so not sure who dropped the ball. Judy was a bit overbearing, not allowing us to finish our sentences. We ordered a bottle of wine (Black and Blue, a red blend, excellent) early but we had to ask for the bottle to be delivered since the appetizer and salads had arrived but no wine. In fact, the helper brought the appetizer at the exact same time as the salads. Not good! The rest of the service experience was very good (for example the help boxing up the doggie bags). Beginning to think we may not go back as there are so many places in the Village that are perfect in every way.

“My 2nd Favorite San Diego Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Right next door to George's at the Cove , my favorite. Azul's has great food and service. I wish that I could be hungry enough to dine at both in the same evening. What a dilemma to have two fine dining establishments on the same block. Every meal has been excellent and the servers are polished , to enhance your experience.
