Don't skip the banana and chocolate cake. It was superb. An excellent final for a wonderful meal.

My cousin from overseas was going to watch Hairspray, so we decided to just go in anywhere and have drinks and so my husband could have dinner as well...what a colossal mistake. The servers act like they are doing you a favor. One waiter asked if we wanted spring water, i anwered NYC is just fine, he brought us a spring water anyway. He acted like he was doing me a favor, when I asked for marinara sauce with my calamari, he gave me an attitude and yelled at me saying that they have to heat it up...The food was subpar at best. We had one app, one entree, 5 drinks, and was charged for the damn spring water we didnt order. Whopping $105. It's full of unassuming tourists! Everything, food, atmosphere, and service is unmemorable and they don't plan to apologize for it!

Excellent place right in the theater district. The staff was very attentive. The waiter recommended an excellent shrimp appetizer with avocado in a large potato chip. They have an extensive wine list. Nice place for a date but for a family.

The atmosphere was really nice outside on the patio. A lot of desserts to choose from. Our table tried 5 different ones, they were all great!

I spent approximately 4 weeks researching NYC restaurants for my "girls weekend" getaway. Azalea was one I put on my list to try. Our second night there we decided to give it a try. We were all blown away. The atmosphere is beautiful and very New York with the outdoor seating. Our waiter added to the ambiance with his authentic Italian accent and pleasing personality. Alessandra was our wine specialist and she was the best there is. You must try the Lemon Drop Martini or the Wickedtini...both are to die for! I can't pick one meal to recommend because all of 8 of us tried something different and then shared. What I can say for sure is that the pasta is so fresh it literally melts in your mouth. The steak was cooked PERFECTLY! They must have wondered what was going on at our table because we could not contain ourselves. Every bite we took was followed by an "ooh or awe". We were all stuffed but we could not leave without trying something sweet. It meant missing our night tour so we asked if it would be worth it. Alessandra said that the Tiramisu is worth it. Tiramisu is my all-time favorite sweet and I have tried it many places but I have never had it like this. It was so smooth and creamy I didn't want it to end. My fiance is Italian and I have tasted amazing authentic Italian food and this topped that by far. I don't even think this review will do Azalea justice because I do not know the proper words to describe this place. All I can say is you can NOT visit NYC without dining at Azalea. I am already planning a weekend getaway just so that my finace can try this place.....that's how GREAT it is! You will be amazed!

Food was good, with great choices. We did try the pear souffle and some thought it great, but I felt other appetizers were better. Had the mushroom and arugala salad - very good. Entree prices were moderate with good selections, but bottles of wine were very expensive and they were pushing $65 bottles of wine. Desserts were also good and service was excellent. Went to see Wicked and had reservations after the show; service was excellent.

We thought we would give Azalea a try since we had tickets to see Wicked next door at the Gershwin. While the service was very attentive, the food was less than great. I couldn't even finish my appetizer (gorgonzola and pear souffle). We were also disappointed that even with a reservation we were seated in the back corner of the restaurant, behind another table. Very tight and uncomfortable. Overall, I do not recommend.
