“GREAT CHOICE IN MIDTOWN”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2012

This past weekend we were taking in a Broadway Show. We chose Azalea both for its location, which is close to the theatre district and its menu. We made reservations and when we arrived we were greeted by our name. We were seated immediatelly and offered cocktails. The drinks were great. We had appetizers which were excellent. Our entrees could not be beat, they were truly outstanding. The service was five star, our water glasses were filled and our wait person checked on us frequently. We cannnot say enough about this restaurant and we will visit this establishment again on our next visit to NYC.

“Very good until the end................”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

We ate here before going to see Jersey Boys, the theatre was a block away (its also right next to Wicked). The show started at 7pm, so we had a 5pm reservation. We were one of the first at the restaurant and seated in a great spot. Service was good. I had the lobster, shrimp pasta special. It was awesome. My wife had the sole, which also very good. We had a par of mango martinis and these were very good. All went smoothly and we took our time. By around 6pm, the place was jumping and you could tell they were ready for us to wrap things up. I understand this, as they'd like to get as many people in and out as possible, but when your waiter asks if your ready to go as they really need the table, it kind of ruins what had been a great experience. There are certainly. other great restaurants in the area and when you are competing with so many, those kind of experiences bring you down a notch.

“Wonderful Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

My friends and family had a wonderful experience at Azalea on Sunday for lunch. Been there a few times and we've never been disappointed. GREAT location for pre-theatre or midtown romp. The food is delicious, the portions are generous but not excessive, and the service is always exceptional. On this occasion, our waiter - Anas - was most impressive. He was extremely attentive and genuinely committed to making our experience a great one - as if we were being invited into his home! (Also has a really nice bar if you want to just hang out with friends!) LOVE this place!!

“Wicked”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

Went to this restaurant, as we were going to see Wicked at The Gershwin Theatre. The chef accommodated us by making something not on the menu, and the food was gorgeous, and just enough of a portion, we couldn't eat any more.The waiter was very attentive, but not too in your face. Gratuities are part of the bill, but only 15%, so if you're happy leave a little extra. All in all, a wicked restaurant, highly recommended
