I really wanted to like this place. I waited almost two weeks to eat here. On some days they were fully booked or under staffed which was fine. However today I was finally able to visit. I decided to sit outside. I was the only one sitting outside. Everything was going wonderful until I felt a few rain drops and request to be seated inside for the rest of my meal. The young woman who was asked to find me a seat acted as if I was invisible and I was left standing by the bar with my second course sitting on the bar getting cold. She walked pass me at least twice and was focused on everything besides me. I felt as if I was begging her to pay attention to me and find me a seat. Mind you I'm the only one standing. Awkward I completely and immediately lost my appetite and became sad. Someone came out and tried to smooth things over however the damage was already done. I felt humiliated and just wanted to go. So I left.
I am very happy I listened to all the other reviews - even with high ratings I tend to be skeptical, but Bistro d'Azur did not disappoint. From the friendly and attentive service to the amazing appetizers, entrees and desserts, you will definitely enjoy your dining experience here. The portions are suprisingly large for food of such high quality. Will definitely be coming back and this is an easy recommendation!
Worth every penny! The food was amazing with outstanding service in a warm and inviting space. On top of the fabulous meal, the friendly staff made us feel really welcome. The atmosphere is chic without being stuffy. Don't be put off by the price tag. Our prix fix dinner felt like a bargain. I will definitely be back.
It’s...French. The lobster crepe was excellent. The duck entre was five stars. The lemon tart was the best desert I ever experienced. The drinks had a wonderful different flavor. Pricing ? There are definitely more expensive French restaurants.
I referred my friend Bob to Bistro d'Azur to take his wife for their anniversary and here's his response. As a chef, I'm always worried when I refer someone to a restaurant, especially when I've only been there once. Thanks to Bistro for not embarrassing me.
