Service is soooo slow!!!! I love sitting outside. The setting is pretty, but it takes so long to get your food, that there's hardly time to enjoy it. Inside is cramped...Be prepared to wait. Use the facilities at home, too, because this is a one-at-a-time deal. I'm hoping the downtown location has the same quality of food!

The atmosphere is great. We got listen to Christmas music which I love. The wait staff was very polite, nice and never stops moving. I had the gyro with fries. Very good. For dessert I had the carrot, pineapple cake with cream cheese icing. It was awesome!

Amazing decor amazing service amazing ambiance amazing food.....everything was amazing. This cozy restaurant sits right on the river & is a great way to escape "a normal" dining experience whether it be sitting outside enjoying the view or sitting inside watching the snow. Will definitely be on your list to go back time & time again.

It is unrealistic to expect certain food to be cooked fresh, and realistically we do not at Café Arazu. But we do expect the food not to be served burnt. We went out for dinner last week and were served burnt food--I took pictures and I wish I could post them. Considering some of the positive reviews about this restaurant,... More

My wife and I went here for our anniversary dinner and were impressed with the food. We were told the service was slow but did not experience that at all. We started with the arazu shrimp, which was tasty. We then both got a salad that we both enjoyed, as they had different twists on both the house and Ceasar... More

I have been a regular customer of Cafe Arazu for over 5 years now and have never had a bad meal. The salmon comes in fresh every Friday and I enjoy the mustard sauce but my wife enjoys it without the sauce. I have also enjoyed the twin medallions and order it frequently. My favorite appetizer is the spinach/artichoke on... More

Haven't been here in several years but on a recent trip from Florida to Denver I went a little out of my way to bring my wife here. We sat outside with our dogs. It was a perfect night and the food and services was excellent! It's always on my list to stop at Arazu if I'm anywhere near.

Friends invited me for dinner. They advertise as a Mediterranean restaurant. I am a picky eater and mostly like American food, with little spice on it. When checking out the menu online, I did not think I would find anything I liked. However, their menu is a little more than what's online. With the suggestion of friends, I had the... More

We moved to Newburgh in September of 2015 and multiple people suggested we eat here. For one reason or another I would find an excuse not to eat here. Finally gave in and OMG have I been a fool. This place is amazing! Out meal was a 10 out of a 10! If you are on the fence give Cafe... More

I found it difficult to choose one entree, as the menu was so extensive and appealing. I finally settled on the Moroccan red lentil soup and the Mediterranean shrimp couscous, all delicious!
