Food was mediocre. Crab and avocado parfait was good. Salmon entree was pretry good as well. The vegetable sides that accompanied the main were inedible.
The service threw us off the most. The server decided we were not important enough or something. Would not come near our table until we caught his attention. Would not refill water. Asked us to input our own subtotal in the Debit machine (a first for us). So I don't think we will be headed there anytime soon.

The food was good, however, when asked a question about the food, our server was obviously uncertain of the answer, and guessed at it. I later asked another server, explaining that we didn't think our server knew the correct answer, and she simply directed us to our server again.
Our server then asked the chef(?) and clarified for us.
Recommendation: servers be encouraged to acknowledge that they may not know the answer, but indicate that they are happy to find out for us in a timely manner. If a server for another table is asked for something, they should also display an eagerness to tend to the situation.

My husband and I came for Winterlicious. The food was amazing. We enjoyed every morsel. We are from Oshawa and do not get out for meals in Toronto very often, but we would highly recommend this restaurant to our friends.

We had pretty low expectations, but for the price this Christmas dinner failed to meet even our low bar. It's a fixed menu, so it shouldn't be too hard to keep tabs on what should be served and when. But we had to ask for bread (on the menu) and had to turn away our Entree because they brought it before we'd received the salad. If we'd wanted to be done our "special" Christmas dinner in 40 minutes this place would have been perfect, but (being European) I prefer to linger over my meal and don't appreciate the assembly line approach to dining. We were treated like a number. Processed quickly, one more table to close, and ... done. Since we were paying $200 a head (with wine and cocktails) for our meal I would have appreciated a more personal touch.
The food was fine. Not fine dining by any means, but acceptable. But the experience fell short in pretty much every other department. Not an experience we would care to repeat.

I went for the Thanksgiving Day special, and I really enjoyed the meal.

I wish the special came with an appetizer and a desert , because the other options on the menu didn't really fit with the theme. Also, they weren't half as good as the dinner itself. My appetizer was the veal croquettes, which were okay. For my dessert, I had the apple cheesecake, which was equally as mediocre.

These service and ambiance were wonderful. All the staff were incredibly kind and knowledgeable. The ambiance was very warm and the noise level was very low, making it ideal for a comfortable dinner.

I liked my experience at Azure, and I felt that I paid more for that than the actual meal itself. I'm not a hardcore foodie and I never had a chance to try a lot of their regular menu, but I can vouch for the ambiance of this place.

I had visited the Azure restaurant at The InterContinental Toronto along with my partner, for a nice meal to finish off her birthday. We found the place to be elegant and clean, yet not overly formal; I wouldn't feel overdressed in a suit, nor underdressed in jeans. The food was of a high standard - 3 courses each along with a gin and tonic, and a glass of house red came to $160CAD, which for an upmarket destination like this, was pleasantly inexpensive. We'd both started with a duck salad, followed by chicken supreme, and she finished with a strawberry tart, and I with the cherry panna cotta. The service was friendly yet professional, and all our needs were seen to. All in all, it was a good meal, and somewhere I'd recommend. I know for some $160 may seem very steep, but for a special occasion, it's a lovely treat.

OUTSTANDING service from Coco , she truly goes out of her way to make your dining experience pleasurable without being intrusive.

The restaurant has a nice environment considering it is bascically located in a Hotel foyer. The food was served very quickly on this particular night.

The restaurant manager was also very attentive and stopped by our table on a couple of occasions to ensure that all was well.

this restaurant is very comfortable and they sat us by a large window with a glass roof and it was quite relaxing watching the rain and the hustle and bustle outside. We had the salmon and the risotto with lamb. Both were delicious. I also ordered the cornbread with smokey cheddar as an appetizer. The bread was good, but not over the top and since we also got warm bread we probably should not have ordered the cornbread.

Went Azure for dinner. Our server was very friendly asian lady. She took her time to explain and recommended the wine that would go very well with what we ordered. All our party loved the wine. Too bad that the wine was not on the wine list anymore as it was discontinued for some reason. All our party had great experience. Strongly recommed to use their complimentary valet parking, but valet attendants were rude. Will come back soon.

Service was great, nice venue - unfortunately the New Year's prixe fixe menu wasn't to our liking - only one of the two choices was good for us and it proved too heavily spiced (not indicated on the menu). Paid exorbitantly for a special occasion - disappointing.
