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.

What a place! Helpful waitstaff, beautiful views but most importantly wonderful cuisine. I found the seafood just dreamy delish, everything balanced and not over flavoured or drowned in sauce as can happen.

The ocean salad was to die for and I loved the crispy red snapper. A wonderful place to experience the very best of local seafood.

I really appreciated that they mark which dishes are gluten-free on their menu.

After eating breakfast there for five mornings, I cannot ever remember a better breakfast place in the world! One can enjoy the morning sunrise while sipping fresh pineapple or guava juice and hot Kona coffee by the ocean. The buffet was comprised of Portuguese sausage, crisp turkey bacon, fluffy scrambled eggs, salmon salad, wild greens salad, fresh pineapple, papaya, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, all kinds of freshly-baked breads including their signature banana bread, lilikoi and guava jelly and Asian selections as well.

Dining at Azure this evening was a memorable experience!

When we arrived, we were greeted by a lovely hostess (Jennifer) who seated us at a nice table with comfortable chairs and a magnificent view of Waikiki beach and of Diamond Head.

Kevin, our waiter was so nice and helpful in assisting us with our menu selections. To begin, we each ordered a cup of the Pier 38 seafood chowder. It was one of the best chowders I've had! We also shared the Big Island salad which was served with a delicious balsamic and vinaigrette dressing.

Our entree selections: Mahi and the onaga were perfectly cooked. The fish selections are brought in fresh daily from Pier 38. When ordering the fish entrees, you have a choice of preparation. Either roasted in a simple white wine and butter sauce or something that's a bit spicier (sorry I don't remember the specifics) but we both went with the wine and butter preparation.

Each entree comes with a choice of 2 side dishes such as sweet potato mashed potatoes, asparagus, corn and mushrooms, etc.

To finish, we shared the flour-less chocolate cake which was a sumptuous treat.

Overall, the entire experience was awesome.

Again, my thanks to Kevin for taking such good care of us.

We will definitely be back!

What an amazing restaurant.
Had dinner here on a very challenging night for staff as it was raining quite hard and we were seated outside but the staff were amazing. A credit to the hotel management.
But the food was the winner and their fish sublime.
Had the crispy whole fish with a few sides and it was a 10/10 night.
Cannot fault this place and was worried after reading a few reviews here but I'll eat here every night if I could.
