Italian
A cozy addition to New York City's Theater District, showcasing the unique cuisine. Azalea's menu is unique for Italian restaurants. Simple and modern, each bite encompasses vivid flavors and traditions of the Brescia and Amalfi Coast regions.
The menu offers selections combining the rich, creamy sauces and hearty meats of Brescia with the fresh seafood and the delicate fruits and vegetables of Amalfi. Once inside, an 18-foot, gently curving mahogany ceiling serves as the blossom connecting the fine woodcarving of the front and side dining rooms and bar area. Georgia O'Keeffe's flower series surrounds guests as they choose from Azalea's distinctive menu and extensive wine list.
Azalea strives to be a place where extraordinary food meets exceptional service in a warm, comfortable setting.

    The Azalea is a find! Our food was delicious and the service was outstanding, Adam was extremely attentive and personable. Bravo to the chef for the Chicken Milanese and Salmon salad. We definitely return soon.

    Convenient location, warm, friendly wait staff. Food VERY late in coming, long after tables around us had been served. Sincere apology from the server who had no control over when food came from the kitchen. Caesar salad fresh and satisfying. Salmon very tasty and perfectly cooked. Chicken Azalea very dry and drowning in a heavy overspiced cream sauce.

    Azalea was absolutely wonderful! We dined outdoors for lunch and everything from the cocktails to dessert were delicious and at a reasonable price point. The bolognese lasagna was the best I’ve ever tasted. Service and staff were top notch. You will not be disappointed!!!

    Nothing wrong with this restaurant, but certainly nothing special. I had four cheese ravioli in a butter and sage sauce. Sounded absolutely delicious. It was ok, but I think it tasted like regular ravioli in butter. Portions are very small. With so many places to go to in NY, this easily makes the 'skip it' list.

    The food was excellent, and the staff of polite and professional servers were gorgeous and knowledgeable about the menu. We had Saturday lunch for 5 people. Cocktails were spot on and well crafted. For appetizers we enjoyed the burrata (although it needed some bread or flatbread or something), the fried calamari (with a yummy marinara dipping sauce), and the bruschetta (with a surprise dollop of caviar on the top of each that added a nice salty finish). My Chicken Azalea entree was cheesy and decadent. Several of our group enjoyed various fresh pasta dishes. The decor is stylish and sophisticated, and the tables aren't crammed together. Overall a really great dining experience with good service and excellent food. My only real complaint is that the place is covered with plastic flowers and plants. It doesn't do the excellent food, decor, and service justice to ring the entire place in plastic plants. Especially for a place named after a flower. If they plant some real plants in their outdoor area and lose the plastic orchids in the bathrooms, it would push this place over the top.

    Four of us had dinner, 2 choosing from the prix fix menu and 2 ala carte. Everyone was pleased with portions and everything was delicious. It was a bit pricey but nothing disappointed- I would definitely go again. We were watching the time to make a show and the service was prompt and attentive.

    Linguine Vongole was terrible with clams being not fresh and inedible, told the waiter, and the dish was hardly eaten, yet the charge remained in our bill. Perhaps too much to expect from a restaurant that caters to the theater crowds and doesn’t care much about customers satisfaction. Would not recommend and would not return.

    This is the place that never disappoints! It’s a gem in a neighborhood where the other options are ridiculously overpriced or chain fast food restaurants. I have become an Azalea regular and you will too! Everything is superb! The ambience, thoughtful service and of course the food! The food is beautifully presented and absolutely incredible! The mussels, chicken parmesan and salad with salmon are my favorites. They have a nice wine list and drink menu and make a perfect cappuccino. They remember you and go out of their way to make this a 5 star experience! If you are dining before a show, they will make sure that you make your curtain. Highly recommend!

    Adam our server was very attentive. We had a reservation for 5:45 we arrived at 5:30 and were seated promptly. We informed our waiter that we had theatre reservations. Our food arrived freshly prepared and timely enough for us to eat, without rushing and see our show. We had fried mozzarella, salmon & chicken parm which we would recommend.
