Just returned to Azure since it changed hands. Now the service is on a par with the food & the new owners are wonderful. Couldn't be more attentive. Had the small plates, Nueske bacon, foie gras, & mussels in red curry. Fresh hot French bread great for dipping, if we hadn't wolfed down the first piece since it was delicious. Each dish was better than the last, and both of us were stuffed splitting the 3 dishes. The bottle of Sancerre was also delightful with a hint of grapefruit which gave it a fresh crisp taste. It's definitely back on our restaurant rotation.

We had heard a lot of great things about this restaurant and let me tell you they are all true. From start to finish we had an amazing meal. We had a group of 8 dinning this week so everyone decided to try a different appetizer to share. They were all amazing. I particularly enjoyed the foie gras as well as the scallop appetizer. When it came to the meal most at the table ordered the steak or braised lamb served with homemade pasta. I was able to try both and each was delicious! I can tell you that the apps and main course were amazing but if you are the slightest fan of carrot cake you will be in love with Azure's. They serve it with homemade ice cream and I would go back just to have dessert it was so good. Great food and service!!

I had ONE night in Ft Myers so wanted to make the most of my dining experience. After a little time on Tripadvisor I decided on AZURE over a few other options and it was a great choice: affable, knowledgeable, and courteous waitstaff and as a bonus I chatted with the chef. The beat salad and venison were exceptional and foie gras is a cant miss. Thanks AZURE and Tripadvisor

The 8 tables & the 6 stools at the cooking bar were filled. The food was beautifully presented & tasted very good. The service was as good as it could be with only 2 men serving so many guests.The guests were primarily dressed nicely to go with the decor & the interesting dishes. I would not recommend it for a party greater than 6 as it is a more intimate setting. Most tables are sized for 2 or 4 diners. The only complaint we had is no one asked if we wanted more bread, & a second soda was charged at full price.Not a place for kids. We had never tried a coddled egg before and did not enjoy it. It was spicy,& the shrimp tasted fishy and we just didn't like the sauce.We tried the seared foie gras for the first time.The 1st few bites were firm and wonderful but the rest tasted so mushy/fatty it was unenjoyable.

Birthday pick so VERY important because Birthday are! We've been dying to try this restaurant but waited the "season " out. So happy! We went all over the menu. Wine list. Excellent. Price acceptable but quality responsive. High end-there. I can do-there. Like I said. Excellent. We started out with the she crab bisque and French Onion crock. Bisque-divine. Tons of crab and perfectly sherried with a hint of zing. That was tasted and saved to relish later. The French onion was loaded with savory onions but well balanced stock. Veal stock was hearty and not over salted. LOVED IT! Then the arugula salad. Tad salty, probably from the feta. But still yummy. We shared the scallops and fresh fish special which Lee recommended. It was Cobia. Well, we went home with a "family food fight" of which was better. Decision-both. Clean plate club on both sides.
