This place looks like it was someone's house at one time...close quarters you are literally rubbing elbows on a very busy and crowded Saturday night...reservations should be made to guarantee a seat. It certainly is not the place for a quiet romantic dinner...maybe different during the week, but if you love loud, laughter, the smell of great food and spirits all entangled w a latin flair you will enjoy it....Tried the appetizer w jerk chicken and plantains...delicious...across the hallway is a live band playing salsa music and people dancing next to a long bar...the upstairs is reserved for private parties and we saw a bride and groom come down and join the crowd and hit the dance floor...food a bit pricey but worth the taste...spirits about average price.

Birthday dinner for my wife, just the two of us, and our 10 kids and grandkids. Service was top-notch. Waitstaff was extremely helpful with the menu (our knowledge of Caribbean/Latin cuisine was little to none). But even the under-10s were happily surprized. Atmosphere - lots of color and artwork. Seating - indoor and outdoor. Drinks - top-notch. Appetizers - great selection. Entrees - picture-perfect! And the desserts - save some room! They were pretty pricey, but they were big enough to share (though nobody wanted to share!). My favorite: "moros y crisitanos" (beans and rice). Fantastic; at least as good as the best beans and rice you can get in New Orleans.My wife had the jalepeno gambas, and she loved them. Hint, with a dollop of guacamole, it was a grand slam! We're already thinking about going back (this time without the kids).

We were referred to azucas by multiple locals, and we see why.Delightful food, wonderful environment, and great happy hour specials. Service could be a bit better but this is no five star restaurant. Had a great time and highly reccomend both the restaurant and bar. We love the way they incorperate different Latin foods. TheBartender had great service, not very sociable but he did the job wel although the mojitos could be strong all in all we highly enjoyed azucas and without a doubt will be returning.

The margaritas were top notch, each of us ordering a different type. The soup was fresh and flavorful. My salmon w/ crab dressing was prepared to perfection. The others in our group ordered typical dishes found in this type restaurant, NO ONE was disappointed; we all agreed we would return and soon. MUST mention service......William was very attentive, not intrusive and made the experience even more enjoyable. Kudos to you all...JOB WELL DONE.

Thank Art_L0ver

Wow, this place was more than we imagined it to be...from the super fantastic new latino cuisine, the great rum selections (who knew there were so many?) to the over the top service! Our friends who live in San Antonio brought us here and we found the food to be truly unique and delicious. A nice touch are all the Garcia glass pieces displayed and used throughout the restaurant. Garcia's studio is next door if you're interested. Defintely a place we'll go back to. Try it you'll like it!
