Italian
A cozy addition to New York City's Theater District, showcasing the unique cuisine. Azalea's menu is unique for Italian restaurants. Simple and modern, each bite encompasses vivid flavors and traditions of the Brescia and Amalfi Coast regions.
The menu offers selections combining the rich, creamy sauces and hearty meats of Brescia with the fresh seafood and the delicate fruits and vegetables of Amalfi. Once inside, an 18-foot, gently curving mahogany ceiling serves as the blossom connecting the fine woodcarving of the front and side dining rooms and bar area. Georgia O'Keeffe's flower series surrounds guests as they choose from Azalea's distinctive menu and extensive wine list.
Azalea strives to be a place where extraordinary food meets exceptional service in a warm, comfortable setting.

    I don’t think I’ve had such an amazing experience. The food was beyond amazing. Absolutely more than I could ask for. Our waiter was tentative and made us feel so welcome. The ambiance was romantic and warm. I loved it!

    Arrived a bit early. They were able to seat us within a few minutes. Service was spot on. Wait staff attentive and even asked about allergies after we ordered. Drinks were brought out quickly as were the apps and dinner. Pasta was delish, steak and salmon cooked perfectly. Didn't not have time for dessert but it looked lovely seeing others enjoy it around us. Great stop for a nice dinner pre-show

    We've always visited Azalea on our trips to New York City as it's been one of our favorites. However, this time we were extremely disappointed. The food was just OK and paying $15 for a small caesar salad was not good either. We had good service, but we won't be going back.

    Food was great. Atmosphere was warm and festive. Service was poor. Waiter was inattentive. We had to ask for bread, water, and refills on beverages. He walked by us multiple times without acknowledging us being there. He paid a lot of attention to tables to either side of us. We did not feel appreciated. We eat here every time we come to New York. We have never felt this unwelcome.

    The restaurant was a nice dinner ambience and their spaghetti bolognese was delicious. They were very accommodating regarding food allergies (nuts, treenuts, beans, sesame seeds) and made sure to take precautions. Looking forward to coming back next time!

    This is a hidden gem next door to the Gershwin theater but I would have traveled to dine there even if we weren’t about to see Wicked next door. Wonderful meal, owner was there and gracious, and we had an outstanding Italian dining experience before our show. We’ll be back!
