Service was very slow. Took the server 10 mins to come over just to pour water in our glasses and another 5-10 mins to take our order.
Also the decorations on our plate were missing but very other tables had them.
Ambiance was very subdued.

We’ve been to Azure numerous times while staying at the Intercontinental and we have always enjoyed ourselves. When we made the reservation for New Year’s Eve we were looking forward to a nice evening with family and friends before heading out onto the town. The restaurant was not busy,but for some reason the service was terrible. Our waitress took our drink order and returned with wine for the 4 adults but never brought the Shirley Temple for my 15 year old daughter. We had to remind her about the drink when she came back to the table to take our food order. One of the people at our table had asked to substitute potatoes for lentils with her meal, but when our dinners arrived, the substitution had not been made. After waving our waitress over (because she didn’t come back to ask how our dinners were) , they finally arrived after our meals were finished. We were never offered fresh pepper or Parmesan for the pasta orders, although we watched other tables get that service, and we were never asked if we wanted more drinks when ours were all empty. We ate dessert with no coffee or tea. We finally flagged down another server and asked for coffee and second drinks when our desserts were gone. Our bill came with a charge of $12.00 for a full order of potatoes - and then we sat for over half and hour waiting to pay with dirty dessert plates and empty water and bar glasses. Finally my husband went up to the bar and basically tapped our waitress on the shoulder to get her attention while she was playing on her phone to get her to take our payment. I spent my late teens and early twenties waitressing, so I am very understanding when service is lacking on a busy night - This was not the case at Azure while we were there. The restaurant was amply staffed and not overly busy. Clearly our server did not want to be working that evening and we got that message loud and clear. Next time, we will take our hard earned money to an establishment who wants our business.

This was a very disappointing experience. We assumed we were in for a very nice dinner, based on the cost, but we were actually served small portions in a quick manner, similar to a fast food restaurant.
The food was fine, but it should at least include a soup or salad to start with these prices.
My mother ate here in the morning, and the waiter offered her juice and coffee, without telling her that it would cost $6 for each on top of the expensive breakfast price.
When visiting Toronto, where excellent restaurants are on every corner, you cannot charge the same as a fine dining establishment if you are not going to maintain that standard.
Go elsewhere for a good meal!

We went on a Monday and the restaurant literally only had 3 people seated at tables for dinner. Considering it was so empty we couldn't understand why we had to wait so long for our server, he could never be found and when he poured our water he was looking away so he spilled it all over the floor. When our steaks arrived they were over cooked and they had what looked like a bbq sauce all over the top. The food was ok at best and the atmosphere was pretty but I can't see myself going back.

Overpriced pretentious food
Poor service speed with few customers
Flavour reasonable
Lunch same pricing high delivered one reasonable portion and 2 tiny ones
Food has flavour but not worth the price point. Had appetizer and entrees - ignored beverages dessert coffee as for Lunch for 3 it would hit $200 if we did this
Does not have a wow factor of food. Tuna , pasta dish and quinoa bowl were main dishes we had. Titles were more appealing than reality- an emperors clothes restaurant
Buffet would probably. be better on weekends. Atmosphere below a funeral parlour . Great Light however and furnishings good. Server made an effort to be be pleasant but not an authentic engagement.
Save your money and pick a standard restaurant in same area- will have better food and atmosphere.

Cibo nella media a caro prezzo. Bistecca non male, chiesto “as the chef suggests” ed arrivata super cotta (mio errore, pensavo che medium rare fosse la norma)...
Servizio ottimo.
Ambiente informale non molto elegante, e molto molto molto rumoroso.

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.

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.

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.
