We went to Azure as a spontaneous decision, and arrived about 7 on a Tuesday. It wasn't busy. Tuesday wines are 50% off - we had a Vieux Telegraphe Telegramme Chateauneuf du Pape for $24 - heck of bargain! My wife and I chose the same dishes: arugula salad with dates & manchego shavings - excellent! Followed by "Duck Two Ways" - a superb confit with mushrooms, and sliced duck breast grilled. The confit was better - and went perfectly with the CNDP. Closed with an excellent lemon tarte (shared). Precise, calm service. An unexpectedly excellent meal -

Don't waste your time here. I would recommend McDonalds over this place. Ate their twice on dates, and both times the orders came out wrong. Nothing altered from the menu. Service was awful, as servers were not familiar with the menu, which didn't matter since they spent most time talking at the bar and ignoring us. Food was average at best and nothing to brag about. Get a pizza next door if in the Meadowmont area, you'll have a much better meal and experience overall.

Chef Colin offered us an unbeatable, eclectic french-bistro style cuisine at our latest visit to his restaurant. My experience was positive and service was outstanding. I sampled the rib-eye caps which are layers of steak, mushroom and puff-pastry. If you can afford to eat here every day, you should! Without a doubt, I recommend this restaurant. Go!!!

We go to Azure at least twice a month. It is one of our favorite places. Deborah and Ed Roach run an outstanding restaurant with friendly service and excellent cuisine.

I had dinner here last night with my girlfriend and it was outstanding! We have been looking for a place a little closer to where we live that is on par with our favorite Franklin establishments and we found it. We sat out on the romantic little patio on a gorgeous night and had one of the best meals we can remember. The atmosphere and service were great but the food was the highlight. We started with the sesame fried oysters with grilled ramps and truffle horseradish aioli which was delicious. For the entree, I had the duck confit with saffron risotto and haricot verts. The duck literally melted in my mouth. My girlfriend had the pan seared scallops with sweet corn, shiitakes, asparagus and a ginger lime vinaigrette. The presentation of the dishes was very cool, but the flavor combinations stole the show. Our waiter told us that they have a new chef. My compliments, we will return very soon.

Last week, I had the pleasure of eating one of the best desserts I had ever tasted. It was the mint chocolate chip cheesecake. The cool mint was refreshing and the chocolate ice cream and the candied orange and sauce topped off this superb culinary creation. While the rest of the meal was great, this delictable dessert really stood out as the show stopper. I would recommend it to one and all.
Also, try the arugula salad and the scallops.

ok, chapel hill: can't you find some good servers somewhere? I am beginning to think all of the really experienced professional servers are in Durham. Case in point: we dined here, and the manager actually trained our server how to properly open a bottle of wine at our table. Can't they do that in the kitchen? I mean, come on, at least give us the illusion that our server knows what she's doing! The food was great, the prices are not, atmosphere is very nice, but, again, when I am paying some decent dollars for a meal, I expect the service to be just about flawless. Go to Brixx to get experience, then come on back to Azure. I'd say recommend with caution.

I have no complaints for this place. The atmosphere is very full of light, with an interesting art collection on the walls. Even with a storm outside, it somehow seemed like we were dining at a sunny sidewalk cafe. The prices are good for the fare and we liked everything we had-lightly fried green tomatoes, chicken with a leek bread pudding, scallops with a yummy corn fry. The dessert was also yummy-the m...m..m..cake, but a bit of a misnomer as it was definitely more torte than cake. I like tortes, my husband thinks they are too dry. The Azure Tea was delicious-a good amount of bourbon mixed with raspberries and sweet tea. Well worth the try!

Irma and I had a wonderful meal at this recently-opened restaurant (where O'Neill's used to be). The menu is high-end "French-American" bistro. They had a nice wine list with lots of great values. Irma like their bread. All food items were prepared with great attention to detail. Ask for a table on the "side" patio. We could easily eat here weekly.

Pros: food, wine list, wine values

Cons: service need polish, some items are pricey

I've eaten at O'Neill's for lunch and dinner and while I wouldn't describe it as a high-end, high-service place, the food has always been fresh and well-prepared. I think it is a diservice to any restaurant to expect food you don't like to be free...think of the possibilities, if you complain every time you go out to eat, you'll never pay for a meal again!

My wife and I just popped in one time. Some of the best food I have ever eaten. I had Shrimp grits and my wife had beef tenderloin. I did not have the poor service that the other reviewer had, but it does not look like the kind of place one would get a hamburger to me.
Only bad thing is that there were too many good items to choose from.

SLOW - sat down and it was only 2/3 full, didn't get served dinner until 8pm. HORRIBLE FOOD & SERVICE - 3 cheesburgers burned to charcoal - their excuse: hard to keep it at required medium well without getting burned. Only one removed from the bill. My father's crab cakes - seafood flavored sawdust - when the waitress asked if there was something wrong and was told they were bad, she simply took it away without offering something else or to remove it from the check. HOT - both times we have been it has been about 85 degrees and if you are wearing anything nice, you will roast. We've been twice and will NEVER AGAIN. Seriously one of the worst dining experiences I've ever had. I can not warn strongly enough about avoiding this restaurant.
