    Disappointed

    My husband and I visited this restaurant for our 30th anniversary. What a disappointment. First of all they seated us outside litterally in a parking lot entrance although they had nicer tables out front that were only being used for people drinking. The service was not good - the waiter was rude and unattentive. The food was not good either - I left with a stomach ache after eating pasta w/broccoli and chicken (the chicken tasted really strong). My husband had Salmon and although it was good, the vegetables served with it were not. The salad I had not tasted good as well. We opted for desert, since we were still hungry, and ordered the chocolate/banana/carmel concoction which we left sitting on the table. That was the most subpar desert we have ever had. Anyway, I gave the waiter a debit/MC/gift card and he came back and told me there was no balance on it. I knew I had never used the card and it was more than enough to cover the check. I gave him another credit card and when I got back to the hotel, I checked the balance on the gift card and it was $100 which was just enough to cover the check/tip.

    This place is not amalfi Italy

    My Wife and I looked forward to eating at this resturant as it advertised Amalfi Italy food.I had veal and Shrimp .the shrimp was fingernail size and the veal was not tender. My wife had a pasta dish that was dry and unflavorable.. Seating for 2 is crowded as tables are squeezed in so close you have to move when another party is seated next to you. The desserts are just passable with a souffle that is small and uneventful ......the banana bread is ok but nothing to write home about......There are many fine resturants in the Theatre District, however this is not one of them.

    Definitely comng back here

    We decided to have dinner just because they were quite close to the theater. What a great decision!! The food was excellent - just the right portion and very very savory. I had the gorgonzola-pear souffle. That was to die for. My boyfriend had the endive-walnut salad. That was a revelation - really!! I had the shrimp and he had the steak. Both main courses were just perfect. Most defintely coming back for more, the next time we travel to NYC- close or not to the next main event!

    Finally! Great service in New York

    For many years New York restaurant owners have absconded th responisbility of management to the customers by getting the customers to pay the 15% for the wages of the servers. It has become standard practice, and now service has deteriorated. Azalea has reversed that trend, great food, great ambiance, great service What can I say. Eat here.

    Try the gorgonzola and pear souffle on the appetizer menu. Outrageously good!

    A Wonderful Dining Experience at Azalea

    What a wonderful celebration we had at Azalea for my daughter's 18th birthday and it is all due to the staff. The manager and waiter were friendly, helpful and professional and added many special touches to the evening including a special dessert presentation for the birthday girl. The food was delicious and we had a great table in the corner. An unforgettable experience and a restaurant I will gladly frequent!

    The Most Unique & Delicious Pastas

    After living in Italy for over a year and a half, I have found it very difficult to find authentic Italian pasta dishes even here in New York. Either the pasta is overcooked or the menu choices are unoriginal and stereotypical, like spaghetti and meatballs or fettucine alfredo. Here at Azalea, you have a unique selection of regional pastas distinctively from Amalfi and Brescia. My recommendations for exquisite pasta dishes are the Pappardelle al Cinghiale and the Farfalle Salmone. I've sent a few people here already, and everyone raves about all the pasta dishes. I highly recommend the Scampi Al Cognac for a great seafood entree and don't neglect to try Baci di Modena for a unique dessert. It's very similar to Tiramisu but made with Amaretto cookies and without espresso.
