Though the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant does not require it, we highly recommend that you make reservations for dinner at Azul. This popular Miami restaurant attracts the masses on Friday and Saturday nights, so if you plan to dine here over the weekend, be sure to call ahead to snag your much-coveted table. We always suggest that you make a reservation even if you have to end up canceling it; we’d rather be safe than sorry. Considering there is no cancellation policy in place at Azul, you won’t be penalized if you have to bail at the last minute — though it is greatly appreciated if you let the restaurant know as soon as possible.
Azul gets especially packed during holidays and peak travel times such as Art Basel, so it’s definitely a good idea to secure your spot in advance. So while reservations are not required, we think it’s best to phone ahead to avoid disappointment, especially if you are traveling to the Five-Star Mandarin Oriental, Miami specifically to dine at the restaurant.
