We were a party of 10 people. We went there on May 12, Sunday, Mother’s Day. Azure has a special buy one get one free semi-buffet deal. A hostess placed us in a private room on the 29th floor for easy access given there were a few seniors. Normally, the 29th floor serves as a bar but the manager has turned it into a restaurant setting during the day time.
We were promptly seated and the hostess did pass out enough menus for all of us to order. The semi-buffet came with a choice of appetizer, main course, coffee or tea plus of course the semi-buffet. The appetizer had two choices of sashimi or seafood platters which included fresh oysters, shrimps, and crab legs. The selection of the semi-buffet was somewhat limited. While it lacked in selection, it made up in quality. There were cauliflower soup, fresh smoked salmons, sun dries tomato, a variety of salad, a few selection of cheese and desserts etc.
The main courses were outstanding too: flank steak was cooked to perfection, spring chicken was tender, fish & chips were done in the right way, and even pork sirloin with apple sauce was tender although it came with white rice.
I am not easily pleased and have been a harsh critic of many highly rated restaurants such as Domani at the Pacific Place to the point that Open Rice has refused to publish it. So far, Azure has won my praise. Azure may not have attractive waiters and waitresses but they were attentive, polite, and diligent. The overall pleasant dining experience had made a good impression on us. Whether Azure is on the coveted Michelin Guide is inconsequential as long as you know what’s good. But if you believe in credit rating agencies, then you probably should buy into Michelin Guide.
