To the right, seating is available in comfortable booths with high backs that ensure the privacy of diners. Food is served family style, in the center of the table, so that everyone may try the delectable dishes on the menu.
Our meal began with a "Chef’s nine" appetizer, small bites of the restaurant’s culinary offerings such as the miniature cups of creamy mushroom soup, fried potatoes and pink salmon.
A bottle of Pinot Noir from Azie's quality selection was chosen to accompany entrée choices such as monkfish and an excellent tofu in mushroom sauce plate that was light yet filling.
Cheesecake, Crème Brule, and other desserts to die for topped off the meal.
In every way the service at Azie was outstanding.
While the restaurant would easily suit a couple out for a night on the town, I would highly suggest dining with a small group of friends. That way more dishes can be sampled from the menu!
In either case, Executive Chef Jody Denton has another winner in this recent addition to fine dining in the City by the Bay.
