Had the salmon which was prepared just to my liking. My husband had a lobster and shrimp linguine which was also very good.

However, we ate inside due to the cool night. Our waiter was tending bar and trying to wait on us. No, we were not sitting at the bar. Service not good. The other waitstaff seemed more attentive to their guests. Food just ok.

We wanted a simple meal at Azure, and we were told it was great food. However, we found it to be only average fare and overpriced. It was not a good experience.

The food is delicious and the service is great with nice outside seating. Best cioppino I've ever eaten.

The title says it all. The pasta was great and the seafood smelled fantastic. Or server was as nice and polite as could be, but it was obvious he could benefit from a little more training.
