You know how you feel when you order something new and it just might be the best thing you've ever eaten? Get ready because it's all on this menu! I ordered a pear and gorgonzola soufflé with Parmesan sauce. I seriously wanted to lick the plate. Everyone ordered something different and had the same reaction

Everything we tried was delicious, the ambiance is cozy and chic, the service, however, needs improvement. Our waiter wasn't very friendly, but everything else was so good, I still recommend this restaurant.

Wow, best rigatoni bolognese ever! This is a fantastic place. Understated interior, but classic, comfortable, well served, friendly and delicious! They had a large wine list, and a good selection of beer and spirits. The red wine by the glass was robust and stood up well to the steak and / or the bolognese sauce. Two of us had the... More

We made a last minute reservation before going to a play. We were seated at the bar which was fine. The bartender Jonatas took very good care of us. The prefix menu was perfect. Salad was mixed greens with a light dressing. We both had the salmon which was prepared perfectly. Ratatouille accompanied the dish. Tirimisu completed the meal and... More

My wife, I, and our three kids ventured here for lunch after arriving in New York City. The atmosphere was wonderful. Quiet with some quaint background music, enough to keep our conversations from being heard around the room. We chose to do the Pre Fixe menu. My wife chose Linguine Primavera. The vegetables were sautéed just right; the portion was... More

Pricey - but everything is in Times Square area. Fine dining - good Italian food and good service. Good for fine dining, a relaxing atmosphere and excellent options.

This was a great spot to pop in before or after seeing Wicked. My husband and I saw a matinee show and then went to the bar for a drink and app. The bartender was very friendly , wine list was great and the eggplant app was delicious. Would definitely return here to try dinner on our next visit

Great for a stop before or after Wicked...literally right next to the theater. We stopped in after for a couple glasses of wine, a cheese plate and shared a stuffed chicken dinner. It was all very good!

Azalea's location is ideal for a pre-theater meal. I recommend reservations. Our meals were outstanding, the staff was attentive, and we will definitely dine there again. Checkout their website for pics and menus.

We ate here for our anniversary after getting referred here by the bartender at Lillie's. large portions so we split the Pollo Azalea and split sides of fabulous gnocchi & even better risotto. Our server was Tatiana and she's so sweet & timely. We're from Texas so every time we return to the City Azalea will be a must.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
