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.

Awesome pear/gorgonzola souffle with parmesan sauce! Melts in your mouth, the flavors blend and compliment one another. The chocolate banana cake with caramel sauce was also excellent. Cake texture was fine, subtle banana flavor set off by the caramel. Superb for after the theatre! Service was superb. Our servers were right there when we needed them but not hovering.

If you're going to see Wicked - the best musical in NYC - and your looking for a very nice low key but great place to eat, I recommend this place. There is no dress code or anything, but don't be fooled - this place is very high class. I recommend this place to anyone.
