Excellent food, very friendly staff. We went to this restaurant twice during our stay in Hawaii. the first time was for our wedding reception, and I cant say there was anything to fault the staff on. The second time was great. Just wish they did the coffee the same as they used too.

Thank you for your compliments. We were elated to hear that you returned for a second time especially since you have traveled a long way. We appreciate your feedback to resume the coffee experience you once had with us. We have passed your feedback to management for further discussion. Mahalo and a hui hou, until next time.

It was very expensive and not that great. The hotel is under construction so there are no guests but that shouldn't affect the food. Go to Roy's instead. Right across the street and so much better.

The Azul Ristorante is a Fine Dinning experience. Chef Stefano Crialesi has bought the flavors of Rome to Hawaii. The pasta, the sauces, the shellfish the fish and the deserts - every single mouthful was just phenomenal.
His kitchen creations are very well complimented by fantastic customer service from the Azul's waiters. In our case it was Stewart. His knowledge of the menu and the wine is irreplaceable. Together, they gave my family and I the most enjoyable dinner experience in Hawaii. I strongly recommend you try it.

My friends and I had planned to attend a Luau but it was rained out, so instead we came to Azul and enjoyed a wonderful meal with Ironhorse Pinot Noir wine. Two of us ordered the lamp chops which were fantastic with a demiglaze sauce that was unique. Our server, whose name was Kim (I think) was so interactive with us we quickly became aware of how great the training is that the staff at JW Marriott receive.

We also enjoyed some Expresso and a chocolate mousse dessert which closed out our visit there wonderfully. I will of course go back.
