“Wonderful dinner in Freeport”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

The food and service were very good. Salad was fresh and white fish with lobster stuffing was light, yet filling. Great ambiance sitting on patio. Service was outstanding.
It was a top-notch dining experience.

“Good food albeit noisy atmosphere”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Nice Lobster salad, decent service but with wood floors and crowded restaurant it gets a bit noisy- probably after season not a probleml in that regard!

“Good, Not Great”
Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

Freeport may be a shopping Mecca but it's a wasteland when it comes to good dining. Azure is rightly rated at or near the top of the Freeport restaurant list but you will need to manage your expectations; it's good but not great.

Azure focuses mainly on Italian dishes but there are plenty of non-pasta options, for example the zuppe con pesce with local mussels and clams in a very good broth. Also recommend the crab and fish cake appetizer.

The menu has not changed for some time but, since most of the dining clientele are tourists passing through, rather than locals, that doesn't matter to most customers.

Beverage options include an extensive wine list (prices a little high for bistro ambience) and house specialty options (including a range of interesting prosecco cocktails)

There is a large outside patio with about ten tables. Though people watching is the only view, this is a pleasant option in the summer season (specify when you reserve). Inside can be noisy when Azure is full, ask for a table upstairs in the winter if you want a (relatively) quiet table.

“Expecting a #1 rated restaurant but we were somewhat disappointed.”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We went to this restaurant because it received a super review on Trip Advisor. We were disappointed. The interior decor was pretty basic, the menu was pretty limited and the food was just OK. However, the service was great. Maybe this is the best place on Freeport, but it doesn't compare to the restaurants we are accustomed to.

“Will not disappoint!!!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

We have eaten here three times and the food is always top notch and consistently wonderful. I had the clam chowder (in love), we shared the calamari appetizer (more in love) and I had the lobster risotto (mmmmmm). Apparently our server thought our entrees took too long to come out and insisted in giving us dessert and coffee on the house. We didn't think it was long, but hey, what a nice gesture. We ate outside and the atmosphere was great. Go here. You will NOT be disappointed...the strawberry sorbet was Delish too!!!
