The food, ambiance, and experience were all amazing. The service, however, could have been better at this price; our waiter was quite gruff and not very welcoming, and would expect more when coming for a prix fixe experience.

The food can only be described as exquisite!! And this is true for the many different items(appetizer, main course and desert) we have enjoyed during many visits over the past few years. All items can also be described as deliciously creative.
We have never been disappointed with anything.
That is why we return regularly for dinner.

I was looking forward to a price fixe as I find choosing easier from a limited first and second course all delicious to the eye. My wife, friends and I were not disappointed. The food is well presented and very tasty. We all had different dishes including venison, duck and swordfish. We had our own wine - a red burgundy; the choice of deserts were too amazing with lavender infused crème brûlée, home made ice cream and a cake with glazed cognac.

You'd never know what a warm environment awaits from the street! Service, while a little slow at the start (but what isn't these days???), was friendly, helpful and professional. Table for 6 and each of loved all of our dishes. Plenty of wine glasses and decanters at the ready for your BYO. Will definitely be back!

I initially was going to go into Manhattan but I had enjoyed my last dinner here and I decided to see if it had sorted out the kinks of a new restaurant. It started off a little bumpy, we had to ask for a wine list after our first course of three had arrived but it improved once we started eating. The bartender offered a glass of champagne once we mentioned we were celebrating my husband's birthday and although I am not a huge fan it was lovely and crisp. The attention to detail was exemplary. We ordered six different dishes to get a nice sampling and nothing fell short. The grilled octopus was perfectly cooked, seared and smoky on the outside and soft and sublime on the inside. The salmon was a delight, a usually overly sauced dish to disguise a lack of ambition this iteration was I think similar to a salmon tartar with a crisp bright taste that was surprising and perfection. Perfectly portioned venison meatballs with a rich tomato chutney was another hit with the a combination of flavors that was the best type of gamey and sweetly tart. The scallops were generous and full of briny goodness with plenty of sauce for the requisite bread dunk! My husband moaned when he ate his duck, the one dish I refuse to make at home having done a seared Peking duck decades before and still haunted by the memory. My lamb shank a la Flintstone was so mammoth I will be having a sandwich the day after. The chef chatted with us at we sat at the bar and added a dish of foraged mushrooms to our last course that tipped this experience into the sublime. Braised lamb with risotto and mushrooms was a meal I last ate in Italy and this was right up there minus the view. A lavender flavored crème brulee and a piece of chocolate heaven, my husband's words, finished the meal in style. All in all another feather in the cap of what I hope will be a premier local restaurant for many years to come.

Thank you so much for this wonderful review. Just to clarify, for others reading this, we don't have a liquor license (none available/NJ's bizarre laws). We are a BYOB restaurant, but have a very limited selection of wines available for purchase, by the bottle, through special arrangement with Unionville Vineyards. So, bring your own, or feel free to order off the front page of our menu. No corkage fee ever, and we will provide decanters for those bold reds! Thanks again for your kind words.

My friend and I dined outdoors on Thursday evening, October 28, 2021. It was a chilly evening but the outdoor heaters worked well and at one point during the evening when I was feeling a little cold, our waiter brought me a lovely blanket to use! My friend had no problem with the cold. The food was fabulous!!....my friend had the lobster crepe and the duck. I had the risotto and Shakshouka. The service was absolutely incredible!! I am sorry I cannot remember our waiter's name....he was so wonderful. He wore a mask even though we were outdoors which I appreciated. I recommend Bistro d'Azur most highly!! Can't wait to go back!!

The food, as always, was phenomenal! They seemed a bit short staffed as our waiter was always at other tables when we needed service—had to track down someone for the coffee after our desserts arrived, and again to ask for knives after our dinner arrived, and for water. But the food was worth the inconveniences of service!

Oh no! So sorry to hear this. We are indeed short staffed. We deeply apologize for the less than stellar service. Please know that we are aware of the issue and we are working on it every day. Hope to see you again soon.

We've been wanting to go there forever and finally went last night. What an excellent meal and terrific experience. Great setting, attentive service, fun crowd, and outstanding food. While our appetizers and main course were all we could hope for, the dessert (a wonderfully decadent lemon meringue "thing in a bowl") was an outstanding way to wrap up the night. We'll be back.

We first visited this restaurant before COVID, when it first opened and were impressed. Last night was even better!! The dishes were French with a twist. For example, the coq au vin had a different spice profile - Moroccan perhaps - and the mussels were seasoned with saffron. Each bite was delicious. Leave room for dessert - the flourless chocolate cake was amazing!! And through it all, the service was excellent - friendly and not at all rushed. Already made our next reservation here.

This was our first time at Bistro d'Azur. We were celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary with our family. We had the lobster crepe, the grilled octopus and the salmon appetizer. They were out of this world! I highly recommend all of them. For our entree, we ordered the lamb shank and filet mignon. Again, outstanding. For dessert we tried a couple of things, the lemon meringue, the trio gelato, tiramisu, the flourless chocolate tart and the yellow cake dipped in cognac with walnuts. They were all so delicious. But, I think the winner was the yellow cake in cognac with walnuts. It was so different and the wonderful flavors blended so well together.

This was a cozy dinner for my birthday. I had the duck, which was very good. My husband's coq au vin was not traditional, but tasty. Creme brulee for dessert was top.

We were a party of four and everyone was very happy with their appetizers and entrees. Both parties of two had travelled 45 minutes from opposite directions to reach the restaurant (somewhat half way between our hometowns) and we all felt it was worth the trip.
I personally LOVED the subtle way that blue accents and tableware are woven into the overall decor.
Feels like a great place for a special occasion! All of us will be back!
