“Azalea - A Wonderful Restaurant in the Theater District Area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

This was the first time that I dined at Azalea and I have to say that everything was great. The service staff was very friendly and helpful and the food was delicious.

We started with a warm artichoke salad on arugula and a pear and cheese souffle. Both were wonderful and were partnered well. I have had artichoke salads before but never warm and this was really wonderful. This was followed by three sampler pastas all of which were delicious but my favorite was the veal ravioli which melted in your mouth. This was then followed by a veal in white wine and a grilled shrimp. I hate to keep repeating delicious but it is all true. And I am a hard to please customer. The desserts were a tiramisu and a panncotta - both excellent. All serviced promptly, graciously and with a warm manner.

I will definitely return!

“Nothing short of amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by Alex, the Concierge from the Hilton Garden Inn Times Square. He booked our reservation for us and shared our celebratory events with the restaurant. We arrived a half hour early before our reservation and they were able to seat us without a wait and our three hour love affair with Azalea's food, wine and staff began! From our early entrance to our last good bye we enjoyed every minute. One of my sisters made the mistake of saying we were here for our "appointment" and the laughs went on from there. The Maitre D was gracious and kind for the mistake but because we can laugh at ourselves we all had a good laugh. When our waiter listed the appetizers and menu specials of the evening, our mouths watered just listening to him. The appetizers and meals were spectacular! Every bite delicious and perfectly cooked. The desserts were scrumptious and the free tiramisu and bottle of dessert wine we received for our celebrations was exquisite! Highly recommend making this a must stop for dinner in Times Square before or after a show!

“Superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

We ate here on our last night in NYC recently after it was recommended by the concierge of our hotel. We weren't disappointed. The food was simply stunning in both taste and presentation. Best meal we've had in a long time. The staff were attentive and often made sure we were content. If you're in NYC then give this place a visit. Price is very reasonable given the quality.

“Wonderful Place!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

The concierge at our hotel recommened the restaurant and it was superb!!!! Elegant decor. Authentic Italian. We received outstanding service. Great Wine List. Loved the Caesar salad. Beautiful wood interior and big picturesque windows. The wait staff was friendly, knowledgeable regarding the wine list and all menu items. If you are in New York, this place is a must! I would eat here on a regular basis if I could!
