“Excellent Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Food was great! Service could have been better. Little bit on the pricey side though, but as I said it was delicious.

“Good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

I have eaten here several times and have not once been disappointed. Try the Ribeye steak ;-) The breakfast is OK.

“Some friendly staff, but don't go here for dinner.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

We stayed here for a conference and thanks to bad weather have tasted breakfast, lunch, and dinner at Azure. Breakfast is pretty fair to good. They make great pancakes and bacon, but their scrambled eggs are runny and the crab cakes with poached eggs were almost too salty to swallow. If you are getting a room + breakfast package, beware that you get vouchers for $12.50 per person, and most menu choices are about $10-12 and drinks (even coffee) are $3, then add in tip...and well it's not a free breakfast anymore.

Lunch was mediocre. I tried the pulled pork sandwich, and it's not Carolina style like they claim but it is still good. The sweet potato fries were obviously previously frozen. I also tried the grouper tacos per the server's recommendation (she was sincerely a delight), but I got maybe 1-2 oz of fish per taco, wrapped in cold flour tortillas with shredded american cheese and canned pico. That would be okay if I paid $6 at a taco stand, but for a $12 entree? Oh, and the birds are so brazin, they sit at your table and try to fly by to swipe food. Service and the view made up for it that day. So far we were feeling like the food was okay just over-priced.

Then came dinner. First course: mixed greens/arugula salad with fried green tomatoes, feta, calamata olives--sounds amazing right? Wrong. The salad was flavorless--like a canola oil for dressing and nothing else. The feta was almost non-existent, and the tomatoes were cooked well but no seasoning and flavorless. We received our bread about 15 minutes after ordering. Then came my $19 roasted vegetable tower. For $19 I received: 2 coins of eggplant, 2 coins of zucchini, 2 coins of yellow squash, 4 asparagus spears, and a 1/2 cup side of nearly uncooked quinoa (literally, I'm not sure if the plate wasn't hot if it would have been cooked at all). My dinner partner ordered the seafood etouffee, somewhere in the mid-$20's. She received a cup of rice with 2 shrimp, 2 scallops and sauce. Her house salad was wilted and brown. We ordered a side of bacon risotto, and I have never had a risotto cooked so terribly before. The texture was a disaster, it had stringy cheese in it, and the bacon was obviously added at the very end because the flavor was not infused at all. We both had to return our tea because it was over-brewed. The server was borderline rude and didn't think to ask why we hardly ate anything. There was no manager in sight to voice our concerns.

In the end, I'd recommend the breakfast basics and get lunch and dinner somewhere else (we even braved hurricane weather to eat anywhere besides Azure). If you do dine here, Julanda is the best server to request.

“Great local restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Good food especially for Daytona, I appreciate the chefs attempting to raise the level of cuisine for the area and the servers are all pretty friendly. Also make sure to visit Clinton at the bar. Nice guy and will keep you entertained while you drink.

“A great meal and a nice view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

The Azure restaurant was a great experience. We might come back just to eat there even if we don't spend the night. The portions were generous and the service was good. We ate outside looking at the ocean. It was a great place for both an evening meal and for breakfast.
