It was close to our hotel and the menu looked good and I was craving some Italian comfort food so we headed to Azalea. The maitre d greeted us warmly and gave instructions for our seating in Italian. Off to a good start. The negative here... More

Recommended by concierge at our hotel - good call. Like other reviews, portions not huge, but pasta dishes we had were awesome. Service attentive and subdued - "old school" - which I like. A bit pricey, but the quality of the food was excellent and considering the prices of other meals we had in NYC this was not outrageous.

I'm so glad I did! This restaurant is a Gem! The staff and the food were fantastic. We stopped in at noon with no reservation. We were seated... More

Bring spice of choice they don't use many. Desert. Eh. Not quite finished. Could go on but let's just say I won't be back. Only other comment would be... More

Good food. Portions were small and service was certainly not with a smile. The bus staff was more polite and helpful. Dessert was good. Place was in a good location.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
