Went over to Azie randomly on Friday night for the first time. The food was excellent, and the gnocchi were especially good. Fusion food is often disappointing, but it was excellent.
The service, however, ruined the meal. The waiter spilt water on a guest and then continued to make jokes about it. They gave us some free appetizers, but we did not even get to choose them. The joking continued throughout the meal, and the manager did not seem too care too much.
As we left, the waiter said, "Stay dry." California service is very laid-back and mostly fine, but Azie just kinda sucked.
I wonder if the crowd there thought we were just tourists checking out a place. 3 of the 4 there were local, and I just could not see spending any more money there.
