“walked out”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

So we had a reservation at 8:30 on Valentines day, and was fine that we waited an additional 15 minutes for our table, but after we sat down, it was at least another 15-20 minutes before we were even acknowledged. At that point, we decided we were not hungry for their prix fix meal and left.

“What happened in 5 months?”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

My husband and I went to Azul five months ago and it was fantastic! Everything was wonderful! Then we went last week, terriable. I think they must have changed owners for sure.
We were seated at a lovely table and ordered cocktails, they took half and hour to arrive and came after our appetizer. They tasted awful too, we did not drink them. The pasta was ok, but it had no flavor. I ordered the shrimp pasta, 3 medium shrimps and a bunch of the extremely tiny ones. The service was terriable, I had to go looking for our waiter at one stage. The dessert was cake, I am sure it was several days old. I could not eat it and they took it off the bill which was nice.
Coffee was cold. What has happened in 5 months? I think they must have changed hands. Such a shame! We will not go back there, it's a shame because the setting is really beautiful.

“Azul an authentic Italian restaurant”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

I'm a "local" not a tourist. We are delighted with Azul because the service is excellent. Roberto and Marco are true restauranteurs who care about their guests and an authentic experience in Italian cuisine. Not many quality places to eat in West Oahu, but I'm glad Azul is in Kapolei.
