Loved the dinner and atmosphere. The food was great, service as well. The waiters wore tuxedo's and it seems a little over the top but you are in Miami. Everyone seems to expect this type of image. There wasn't anything negative to say. It was an all round good experience. Be prepared to spend about $200 per person.

There's nothing offensive particularly about the food at Villa Azur and the service is decent enough but there are a lot of restaurants serving food far better than this.

The quality of the produce seemed to be ok so the problem is clearly in the preparation of the dishes and there seemed to be wild swings in the portion sizes also depending on what you ordered.

Nice enough setting but poor food.

We didnt enjoy our dinner. The food was horrible and very expensive. We found the service to be terrible unless you buy a very expensive bottle of wine and then you get better service. The staff are all imported from France and are very pushy. They push you to order the expensive "specials of the day" which are available every day but are just very expensive. They also push you to buy the overpriced bottles of wine or champagne.

Last weekend we had a dinner with friends in this 'French' cheap-copy restaurant where you can lose your voice and hearing in an hour. The music was extremely loud. We complained three times and when we asked for the manager we were arrogantly taught that loud music is the concept of this restaurant and after this explanation even put the music louder !!!

The food was 'embarassante' simple: tiny chunks and poorly cooked. Perhaps some training in the kitchen would help to respect proper cooking time. We had a look at the wine list where even the most simple wines almost carried pricing of major Chateaux-wines. The Bellini drinks tasted as if they were prepared by the bell-man. At this restaurant the first visit is one too many.
