“ My husband and I celebrated our 4 year wedding anniversary as this was recommended the place to do so. We were very happy with the accommodations as they put rose petals on our table to replicate our very first date. The service was wonderful, the live music was great, and the food was awesome! My husband thought that his fillet was the best he had ever had in Lexington. He also thought the wine selection was impressive as well. I highly recommend Azur as a place to take guests from out of town or to celebrate a special evening. I am looking forward to dining here again in the Spring when the patio is open.”
“ Seriously, food orgasms are real. If you're not lactose intolerant and not worried about your cholesterol, may I recommend the lobster crepes with some white wine? I also asked the waiter to add a little spring mix with balsamic on the side, which he happily agreed to, and I was in food heaven. Ridiculously delicious.”
“ Executive Chef Jeremy Ashby prepares surprising and unique dishes using local ingredients and a wide range of influences. In addition to the standard menu, the specials are always worth checking out. The decor is simple and modern, and the staff is laid back, friendly and professional. The most exciting food in Lexington! As an added bonus AZUR's patio is great in almost any weather! Good music is a plus too.”
