I don’t remember such a bad and horrible experience at a restaurant. Taking into account it was a 1100$ bill for 5 people, the servers forced us, from the very beginning, to order more and more entrees wit the excuse that “the chef was very...picky and needed all the courses ordered at the same time”. Actually, they came twice to our table and insisted we should order more food because later they said it would be impossible. We felt their desperate rush to make a bigger bill and that turned us off. After, they brought a hookah for which they charged 175$ plus tax (of course they never said ANYTHING about the cost). The pasta was soaking in oil, and the Villa Azur salad was, for 20$, a mountain of romaine lettuce. We left it complete. Our friend was celebrating her birthday, and they never brought candles in her cake after we complained about all this. Of course, they included their service in the bill without even asking. The feeling is you are in an artificial place where they care about how high the bill can reach, but not about their clients or the quality of the food, the restaurant and the venue. You do not feel cared for or that the service is honest in any way.More

We were skeptical going because some of the reviews on here spoke about bad or "pushy" service. We did not experience ANY of that. We had a great night, great food, and everyone from the front desk to our wait staff was very accommodating.

This place has a major attitude problem. I made a reservation a month in advance and wanted to eat outside. When we arrived we were not greeted at all, we were already told we had to leave after 2 hours. Our request to be seated...outside was ignored and when we asked the hostess that we wanted a table outside, we were told that it could not be guaranteed and that this table inside was the only one available. Inside it was freezing cold and super noisy so we decided to leave. I wanted to make sure we weren't charged, so I told the hostess at the front desk that we were leaving. Suddenly she told us that we can find a solution but we just wanted to leave. Then the host came after us and told us that apparently there was a cancellation and they now have an outside table available. I find it very hard to believe that there was no other solution after inquiring with the first hostess, but when guests get angry, they can do something. Do not go here if you are looking for a nice place to party, there are other places with great customer service.More

Terrible food, and for terrible, I seriously mean terrible. Catchy music and environment, they recommend an elegant dress code, but I think they don’t even know what smart means. The people working in the restaurant are vulgar and unprofessional. The outcome’s a super expensive bill...for no reasons.More

In Miami for a long weekend with another couple. We had a great night at Villa Azur. Service food and atmosphere were all wonderful. Unlike other restaurant experiences this weekend, here everything was spot on. No hesitation in recommending this restaurant.

Visited with several couples. Greeted by a pompous host. First thing he told us was when we had to leave because they were so busy even though we had a reservation. Seated and greeted by an arrogant waiter who tried to upsell the entire menu...before offering water. Thankfully the atmosphere is fun. Food was far from great. This place thinks it’s elite. It’s not. Don’t go.More

The guy who staying near the hostess (manager or administrator) and one of the hostess were very rude to us and didn’t sit us even that we have booked table 3 days before, and the reason was because we still wait for 2 more guests...(and 6 of us already been there and wait for 1,5 hours!!!!). We have booked some appetisers and champagne which supposed to be when we arrived, but they give us the table which wasn’t clean yet, there were no chairs, and they left some plates after previous guests. I don’t understand why they accept reservations when the people who didn’t reserve table got it more faster then us, because they had bigger amount of people. About the service and food: 3/5. I ordered filet mignon medium, but I’ve got it well done. The server was not checking on us at all , so we ordered for 2 drinks by one time.More

We have booked table for birthday party, and the manager (or somebody who was staying near the hostess and greeting people) was super rude and brutal to us, he didn’t sit us because we were waiting for 1 more person. I’m in shock how in...the customer service could work people like that. I really sorry to the birthday girl because he was treat her like a sh*t in the so important and special day! The birthday (25 years) was destroyed! He was laughing to us and playing on emotions. I’m in shock, never come back.More

Food was the best I have ever tasted from the Boucheron to the octopus and beyond, it was a divine gastronomic experience. Staff was so friendly but they could do with improving their attentiveness and efficiency. Too eager to grab our plates but not quite...as good with the drinks service. I had to continually try to get our servers attention. It was not busy at the time at all so no real reason for the slow service. That said, the pleasantness of the staff and the great food plus the aesthetics of the space more than compensated. I would have given 4 ad a half stars if that option was available.More

We have a party of 8 that does a Supper Club in Miami every other month and Villa Azur was the pick due to the food and the WOW factor. Started with very finely crafted cocktails at the bar at 730 and moved to a...nice setting in the courtyard, we sat right in the middle where our meal was served. It is a wonderful setting and scene. The food was great, the burrata and carpaccio was a highlight to start and we shared a lot of dishes including a chateaubriand for the table, two pastas served in a cheese wheel, and even a whole roasted chicken which were all fabulous. The place was packed by the time we finished around 10pm, and we moved back into the bar where the nightlife had already started, which is exactly what we were looking for, dinner with a vibe afterwards. This is a place for special occasions for sure, and make sure you dress to impress as well, Miami's finest will be here to be seen.More

We had a family style dinner for 12 in the court yard. Evina was extremely helpful giving us options for a pre set menu. We had the Arancini Lobster, the Villa Azur salad and the fresh burrata as appetizers. Then we followed with the filet...mignon, whole roasted chicken and the wheel cheese pasta, wine, and an assortment of deserts. And that's when the party started, there was a live saxophonist playing along with the DJ, and a life fire performer to warm up the atmosphere. The place was filled with sparklers, the energy was incredible. The champagne was flowing, and this will definitely be a night to remember. We rarely post reviews, but this place deserves the full credit. Highly recommend.More

We had a dinner reservation for three with our 13 year old daughter for 7:30 pm today at Villa Azur, booked by our personal concierge. We enjoyed the courtyard , the ambiance, music, our server was good and food was decent . The kicker for...us was at 9:30 our server tried to close off our bill without us having dessert. We were not told at the start of the meal that we had a time limit but apparently we did. They had a reservation for 10 pm and I understand that they needed to turn the table over BUT not starting at 9:30 pm when we had not even finished our meal and with no notification at the start of the meal. I honestly lost my cool because in 20 years of coming to Miami I had never been treated this way by a ‘fine dining establishment’ which the manager professed to me that they are. Places like this are NOT fine dining but more nightclub trying to sell food and upset their patrons. No wonder they have a 4.2 on google. They should be striving for a 4.7 or 4.8. Unfortunately by the time my dessert came and I paid my bill, my evening and appetite had been ruined. I will not be returning to Villa Azur and have told my concierge the same. Plenty of nice places to go in Miami. Do yourself a favour and pick another restaurant.More

I had a reservation tonight at Villa Azur in Miami Beach. just got a call from them to confirm my reservation. Upon confirming my reservation I was told that flats whether they are sandals, mules, loafers were not allowed for women as their dress code...is chic and trendy so women are required to wear heels! I have never heard anything so crazy and dumbfounded! I mostly wear flats and had not brought heels with me. I canceled my reservation as a result of this policy. Certainly would not recommend such a restaurant!More
