The attack itself was a success, and the planning was thorough and precise. However, Azula retrieved information about the attack long before it took place from Earth King Kuei while undercover as a Kyoshi Warrior. Because of this, the Royal Palace and entire Capital City were evacuated, so the invasion lost the element of surprise, which in turn eventually led to the Fire Nation's air fleet destroying the invasion force's submarines, eliminating every possibility of escape – except for the few that were able to fly away on Appa. The Fire Nation was able to ward off the invasion force and take the adults as prisoners, so therefore the invasion ultimately failed in the regard that only Team Avatar and a few others were able to escape.
