Description: The Royal Hawaiian presents Azure - a world-class restaurant perched along the Waikiki beachfront under the canopy of hotel's dramatic architecture. The bejeweled oceanfront space is adorned with intimate candles, plush banquettes, and pillows - creating an ambience of exquisite relaxation. Daily at 5:30 am, the ringing of a brass bell announces the opening of the Honolulu fish auction. And it is here that our chefs begin their quest for the freshest morning catch. Obsessed with quality and driven by excellence, they handpick the best of the best. Offering you, our discerning patrons, the tastiest seafood on the island and an experience beyond compare. Whether it is ahi, opah, onaga, opakapaka, or moi that whets your appetite - locally caught fish are selected each morning at daybreak from the Hawaii fish auction and then prepared with your pleasure in mind.

My husband and I went to Azure to celebrate our 2 year wedding anniversary (and lucky number 7 years of being together) and the experience was 100% perfect. I am a huge fan chefs' tasting menu so as soon as I heard that they had that option I went for it (with the wine pairing). Every dish was very impressive. Five courses for $65.00 (and they threw in a celebratory dessert in addition to our dessert which was the 5th course. Our waiter was amazing. He was attentive from start to finish and very helpful and friendly. The location couldn't be better. This place is perfect for special occasions. Thanks to Azure for making our anniversary an extremely memorable one!

The evening started with some missteps: There was one only one hostess at the reception, and we were left standing while she talked on the phone for what seemed endless minutes. One hostess looking harried was not adequate, there were 12 persons waiting while she was one the phone. A second hostess finally appeared and began to seat customers. When she failed to reappear for several minutes, the hostess at the counter asked one of the waiters to seat us after about a 10-minute wait. All of the tables were empty, so it wasn't like they were overwhelmed. It's really not a big deal, but an upscale dining facility such as Azure should be better organized and have adequate staff to look after arriving customers. The second problem was our seating. We were literally seated at the last table in the back of the dining room. We noticed that the group behind us, who walked up without reservations, got a better table on the main floor. When I asked the waiter seating us why we were relegated to the back corner and did not get an outside tabel - despite making reservations several days in advancee - he became annoyed and walked off in a huff, promising to check. He returned and said all the outside tables were reserved, and then showed me the cold shoulder for the rest of the evening, i.e., how dare I demand things of him. Again, not a big deal, but a waiter with an attitude tends to diminish the overall dining experience. Fortunately, it went up from that point forward. Our assigned server, Mr. Saavedre, was wonderful, charming and engaging. He was able to provide appropriate comment on dishes, and was knowledgeable about the wines. We had the tasting menu and it was quite delicious. And quite a bargain when compared to tasting menus at other upscale restaurants in Waikiki. We will be back, because the food is worth it.

My wife and I dined at Azure twice during our recent trip to Hawaii and found the location, food, wine and service to be of an excellent standard - certainly the best of where we dined in Waikiki. The seafood choices were excellent. This is the main restaurant for the Royal Hawaiin Hotel and is situated right on the beach.

Located in one of the oldest historical hotels the Royal Hawaiin, the dining room is sumptuous- high cielings and open on to the beach. There are a number of upmarket restaurants in Hawaii but due to the predominant American clientel they mainly feature expensive steak and chips. This is truely gourmet cuisine. We chose the 7 course menu with wines complimenting each course which was near $180 per person, but everthing was superb!

Azure's menu is breathtaking - fantastic food and incredible cocktails. You can taste the effort and care that's put into everything. We were lucky to get a table right on the beach, which made for an amazing night. Try Azure if you're a couple celebrating a special occasion!
