SUPERB! Returned to San Antonio for 40th anniversary to one of our favorite restaurants. Fun& relaxing atmosphere. Exotic tropical bar selections. We experimented with the delicious& unique choices of Mojito’s and Sangrias before dinner. Our attentive & friendly waiter brought us appetizers we inquired about...that was not even on the menu, fried yuca. Dinner was tasty w/fresh herbs and vegetables to supplement delicious traditional and modern Latin meat & seafood options. Had Chilean Sea Bass & Feijoada do Rio Pork Shank w/grilled Caribbean vegetables & black beans/rice. Great presentation. Tropical Fruit Gratin & the Dessert Sampler great choices to top off a lovely evening. Live music & salsa dancing not currently available (COVID-19) yet still enjoyed great Latin music as we dined. Patio dining was available, but selected indoor seating (well separated for social distancing). Staff made it a perfect and memorable evening! Vielka & Jeff......More

Went here just before closing, on a whim. My biggest regret is that we had eaten a large late lunch, so we were unable to do justice to the delicious food on the menu. My other regret is that we don’t live in the area,...so we cannot easily return. Azuca specializes in Mojitos, my Very Berry was perfect, and my husband said his red Sangria was the best he’s ever had. Warm just-out-of-the-oven cornbread with butter was a superb starter, and the Beef Steak Churrasco which he ordered was cooked perfectly. I loved my Spiced Chicken and Spinach salad, regret #3 is that I was way too full to try a dessert. We also appreciated the graciousness of our server, and the restaurant’s adherence to Covid 19 safety procedures. Just go!!More

Menu had a number of interesting items and settled on a mixed seafood stew which was indeed delicious although did not care for potatoes in a stew with rice. Service was attentive. I was a bit miffed when the server added both an 18% tip...and a 20% tip to the final bill; when brought to her attention she apologized and removed the 18% one [menu did not state that anything was automatically added to a bill].More

My friend and I went for a girls night out based on the recommendation of one of her coworkers, and it turned out to be a perfect evening. Super quiet for a Thursday evening... Everything about our meal...the drinks, appetizer, entrees and dessert...was delicious. It...was also all very reasonably priced especially considering the portion size. We both had plenty of leftovers, so we could save room for dessert. It’s a small restaurant that takes reservations, and a place I would not only return to but would highly recommend to someone looking to try something new.More

Great atmosphere, wonderful food and presentation. Tons of leftovers. First quality experience. Loved the 23 dollar assorted appetizer. Was a meal in itself. Salad with salmon added was a winner, as was the mixed seafood. Even cornbread as complimentary touch was a loaf and one...of best ever. Cannot say enough good about this place. Walked to from north of riverwalk easily.More

Found this restaurant randomly via an online search and decided to visit it during a planned visit to the area, Well, my visit was fantastic !! Carlos, our server was very accomodating and friendly. The margaritas were tasty. The tostones were plentiful. We shared servings...of Mofongo, Beef Steak Churrasco and the dinner Paella . All were delicious !!!! The corn bread was outstanding too. Looking forward to my next visit.More

We had a delightful experience at Azuca, the best meal of our 5day trip. The dishes were a blend of very unique flavors. We were able to try the grilled octopus, Seafood Curry Latino, Gambia al Ajillo and the Seed Crusted Ahi. All 4 were...amazing! Hard to say which I liked best. We also tried the Tres Leches Cake which was very flavorful. I would consider it a not-to-be-missed place.More

We went there last night for drinks and everyone from the bartender, servers, and a man who I believe was the manager, was super friendly. Their patio was very charming, and it was heated on a chilly night. We went back today and sat indide...the restaurant. The ambience and the music (and the volume of the music) were perfect. Not too loud, so we could have a conversation. The cook was cooking and singing. It was so pleasant. Later in the night he came to check on us personally. The food was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. And again, our server was awesome.More

Our party of 3 (2 adults, 1 teen) ate here for lunch after visiting Garcia Art Glass Studio a few doors down. The Latin food was excellent, the service was attentive, and the "vibe" was great. Be sure and get the cornbread!

I suggest calling the restaurant to find out and you should keep the name of the person who answered your question just in case you have a problem when you get there.
