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.

the overall ambiance of this restaurant was wonderful and the food was simply divine. i really enjoyed the kind servers, although they became hard to flag down when service picked up, which is understandable. overall a wonderful pre-show experience!

My guests arrived late (6pm for 5:30 reservation) and we had tickets to a 7pm show. I asked the waiter if we’d have enough time he said yes if we ordered any pasta dishes or certain fish dishes. We all ordered the branzino. It cam out within minutes of ordering and was delicious and cooked to perfection. My guests each had a glass of wine and we were done with time to spare to get to the show. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Azalea is our new find in the theater district. The food is very good but he service is exceptional. we were a very large group of 16 last week. The wait staff was attentive. Our meal was delicious and relaxed and they got us out of the restaurant in plenty of time to make our show

Azalea is not a restaurant I would consider for anything other than pre-theater, but for that limited purpose it is totally fine. The staff is friendly and the room is spacious and well lighted. I wouldn't say that it has great ambience but it is quiet enough for conversation. We were seated immediately even with our party incomplete. Service was prompt. You will not miss your curtain. We started with calamari (very nicely done, not overly breaded or oily) and spinach salad (mediocre) and then butternut squash ravioli (very good) and veal scallopini (decent). With 3 glasses of wine, an excellent espresso, tax and tip we spent $60 pp. The theater district is deficient in reliable, reasonably priced and efficient pre-theater restaurants so you should consider Azalea because it checks all these boxes.

Those in my party really enjoyed their steaks, but I was underimpressed with my pasta carbonara dish. The bacon wasn’t cooked well and the butter and cream sauce separated before I could finish eating. The apple cake was more like bread pudding.

We had a perfectly nice dinner at Azalea. We were seated in a back corner - not much of a view but it was quiet enough to comfortably chat.
Our waiter steered us well, recommending this dish over another.
Desserts were a bit underwhelming but overall I liked it - very close to our theatre.

THis was my second visit to Azalea. I asked for a window table and my request was honored. The menu is lovely...not large but enough to select from. The service is always excellent. I tried lamb chops and they were delicious. The mashed potatoes were cold, but they replaced them with steaming hot ones. I thought the portion was small compared to other restaurants lamb chop dinners at the same price level, but they were cooked to order and filling. My friend had the gnocchi which was totally delicious. This time we did not have dessert, but they have a nice selection-a bit pricey but tastes good. This restaurant was far from our theatre but still worth going to because it is a little quieter. Enjoyed our dinner.

Food and service was very good. Nice selection of different entre items and this restaurants proximity to the theatre district is an advantage for early or late evening dining to coincide with your theatre night out. Salads were excellent, chicken dishes very good and cappuccino was outstanding.
