Azure Restaurant @ the Intercontinental Toronto Centre

Great experience food and service
Great place all around - food, service and atmosphere outstanding!
Everything about this place is amazing from the venue to the food
Amazing experience! The food was so flavourful and came piping hot and the service was awesome! Our waitress went above and beyond to make our meal special. We're definitely coming again!
Amazing Valentine's Price Fixe
Very good from start to finish
Went with my boyfriend for valentines dinner. Spent around 250 for two people with drink. The service was decent, but the food tasted like leftovers. I understand it’s the busiest night of the year, but it is unacceptable to spend 100+ / person and served stale vegetables. Only thing that’s acceptable on the menu was the bbq platter. Get your games on carbon house.
The food is always great. However the smoked turkey on the pit master platter is not the greatest.
Honestly one of the best food places I’ve been to in the GTA.
Location was easy to find. The food was delicious, venue had a cool vibe to it and our host was nice. Wish I had a nicer table or paid more to get a bigger table for valentines day but I guess it’s based on people attending. I would highly recommend anyone to try out this restaurant!
Valentines day menu was so bad... charged $70 plus tax plus tip is way over.. for it ... I think. . but was bad bad 3 set menu.. downgraded winterlicious set menu .. that you could easily get for $20 bucks anywhere else..
Went for the first time on Valentine’s Day. Fixed menu, delicious food. Had the bbq platter, would definitely recommend. Great food, great service and a beautiful restaurant. You won’t be disappointed.
Good is delicious. Service was a little botchy.
We went for Winterlicious. The service was excellent. The portions of food inconsistant. My husband ordered muscles and he only got 7, they are inexpensive so I thought there should have been more. I had a toastada and the size was good. For our main we both had ribs, for the price I think we should have had another rib and another piece of brisket but it was good. Would recommend it but portion size could use some work.
We enjoyed our food very much, but there were a few shortcomings. We ordered mussels and did not receive a bowl to discard our empty shells. When we asked for a mussel fork, they didn't have any and didn't seem to know what one was.
We also had the BBQ (Winterlicious menu). It was a bit too salty. Cranberry Buckle was flavourful, but dry.
Ordered the Pit Master Platter, ribs were delicious, chicken was crunchy and moist, turkey was tasteless, and surprisingly the brisket was not that good either, super chewy and dry. Korean cauliflower and corn bread was so good, must try! Overall not bad, would still come back to and try other items on the menu.
The food was delicious and the service was excellent. It wasn’t too crowded. The drinks and food are a little pricey but overall I would definitely come back.
Great food and service, especially the brisket, very tender!
This restaurant was an overall okay experience. We go in and are instantly amazed by how big it is and the ambience and look of it! It’s a beautiful restaurant. I went with 1 other girlfriend and the table we sat at was very close to the other tables you could literally hear both conversations on both sides of the table. We went for the winterlicious menu. When we sat down they didn’t even give us the winterlicious menus we had to ask for them so you wouldn’t have known if you didn’t research them first. We place our order and wait about 45mins before the waiter comes back and asks us what our order was again (and none of it was right). At this point we were starving. It came out kind of quick after she fixed our order. The beef is absolutely amazing. When we waited for the dessert another waitress came by and asked us how we were doing and we said good we’re just waiting for our dessert and shes like oh what did you order, the other girl didn’t write it down. Again - super frustrated at this point. Not happy at all how the service was handled especially after saying our order 3 times. The meal itself was great - the dessert - not so much. All in all, really good food. Terrible experience with the service but she did offer a free glass of wine for the wait, but not really anything else.
Server started strong but later was distant and did not check back for any further drinks. We had to ask for the bill then wait, had to ask for the credit card machine and wait. He also assumed it would be on one bill.
Food was delicious!
Food was delicious and the staff was super friendly and helpful :)
Great! Will be back soon!
Overall a fair experience, and would likely return - however, upon arrival for a 5:45pm reservations, was informed by the host that "there is another reservation @ 7pm and we have to be finished and out by this time".
We were informed of this again when we were first served. This did make the overall experience feel like we were rushed and as a result avoided dessert/after dinner drinks.
The food was good and decently portioned, and most notably, it arrived very quickly once ordered. Service staff were attentive. The decor and ambience were nice.
Once again though, the experience was certainly dampened by the feeling that we were being rushed through our dinner. Had this time limit been shared at the time of reservation (as opposed to on arrival), I would have likely dined elsewhere, as eating under the clock sours the experience.
My first time here. I didn't think the food was very good. The skewer was odd tasting. The broth in the seafood boil was also odd tasting. Even the dessert was not good. I got the banoffee, it was too thick and doughy with 3 pieces of banana...and I never had chantilly cream taste salty in my life before. The drinks were good. And the atmosphere was good.
Wonderful setting, great service, amazing food, reasonable price!
Everything was great. Although, honestly the food came a bit too quickly. Seemed like we were in and out within an hour 20 minutes.
Really good experience at the Carbon Bar. Cerviche Tostada was fantastic, as was the cornbread (though the spread could use a bit more flavour, was overpowered by cornbread). Great vibe, but the tables are too close for winter seating (I pretty much stuck my behind in 2 guys' faces to get into seat) and the service was just "ok". I would go back again though - it's a solid A-
We loved the music! Great food but a little pricey. Fantastic cocktails.
Best brisket in the city
First time having crocodile so that was a kick. Food is quite good and can be a fun place. Background music was great. If you like bar b q, this is a place for you.
Excellent food and service - the pit platter is a must!
Overall was great. I have been there a few times before. However, we were there on business and were put in the circular booth. It was too cramped for a business setting, though we made the best of it. I suppose it made our conversations easier with all attendees. Our server was amazing, food was really good. Overall, if we were seated elsewhere, I think it would have been more enjoyable.
This is my favorite place to eat. I recommend this restaurant to many people and have taken many different people to experience the cuisine offered. The brisket is the absolute best.
We had a great dinner and night out. There were 4 of us and we all enjoyed our main course. The brisket was very tender, the ribs were fall of the bone, the fish was cooked perfectly and everyone loved the mac & cheese. We would certainly return next time we are in town.
Awesome food and great value!!
Food was fabulous. Wine a little pricey. Would recommend.
All good and waitress was great
Great bbq. Brisket, ribs and turkey along with respective sauces were excellent. Great find
