This was our third visit to the Azorean. The first two times were excellent, last night was barely average. Started off with us having to ask twice for water, which never came with the lemon I requested. Ravioli app was overcooked to the point that the pasta was too chewy to eat (it was pan fried). I ate the filling... More

From tapas to apps to main courses - have never been disappointed. On the last visit we started with a couple of tapas plates - roasted potatoes with hot finger peppers and the fava beans with chourico. Both were fantastic. Mains included pork aletejana and a Cataplan fish plate. Both outstanding. The bonus is an excellent wine list (mostly Portuguese... More

Many of my acquaintances (we all live in this area) really like this restaurant, and have had food they thought was great (I can't remember the specific dishes). For me personally, the food was a little below average. I think I had fish and chips. The atmosphere is very comfortable, but I wouldn't rave about the food.

We had dinner at the Azorean the other night, wanting a change from the usual fare in this area. We were seated in a booth, which was good for private conversation. I ordered wine from the not very impressive wine list - inexpensive but not very good. I ordered the grilled octopus and my wife ordered the whole grilled fish.... More

Great local Portuguese Restaurant. Really good food with a local flair. The atmosphere makes you feel that you actually in a restaurant in Portugal. The Tappas are one of our favorites! And if I don't get the Tappas, the scallop casserole is excellent!

This was a fine Azorean/Portuguese restaurant, specializing in Tapas. The portions were large and everything was quite good. They had a Tapas Tower (which is pretty much what it sounds like) but we decided we were not quite that daring.

But it must be said - salty, salty food. The decor is very attractive and the dining area is spotlessly clean.

Food was meh, and I have been here many times and loved the food. Had pork tenderloins and they were dry. Pounded very thin, and cooked. Served with rice & their fries ( too much carbs) Service good & no one else had any complaints. Would think they tended to overcook due to being pork, but would have been more... More

Went for a Friday lunch about 1 PM and we were lucky to get a table in this delightful restaurant.. The Azorean offers a large luncheon menu including sandwiches, salads, and entrees. The appetizers are interesting options as well. My friend and I split an order of grilled shrimp from the appetizer section and enjoyed shrimp that were plump, juicy,... More
