Ok… By far one of the best restaurants I’ve had in a while!! The manager is so friendly and our waitress kj was so funny, helpful, and kind. The decor was beautiful and the food was amazing. I love that they serve Jimmy P’s meats because I also love that place. French onion soup was the best I’ve had in a while. Definitely trying out the patio/bar menu next time, yum! I actually left the restaurant feeling that I ate at an actual restaurant rather than all of these open concept, boring and cheap feeling restaurants that are in Naples.
We enjoyed the last night our childhood friend's reunion at The Real Macaw. We selected appetizers for our entrees because it was late when we arrived. One friend and I shared the seared tuna and Portobello mushroom stack. The tuna was perfect and the portion generous. There was an issue with the mushroom but our waitress, Casey Jo, noticed right away and insisted on "making it right." She sent the owner over who apologized and had the chef send a new plate. They were so kind and it really was delicious! My other friend ordered the crab cake, a favorite choice of hers. I glanced over at her half eaten cake and didn't see any filler. She said it was delicious. It's such a warm, laid back atmosphere. The musician who played last night was very good. I loved seeing our waitress dancing with the hostess at one point during the evening. They really seem to enjoy each other. The owner is lovely and we were impressed to learn she inherited the restaurant from her mom. They all helped make our gals getaway extra special.
Mary our waitress was amazing, didn't push us to order so we were able to enjoy sitting outside. I was however disappointed in the food. I ordered the Steak Caribe and asked for it medium rare, but it was cooked medium and when the food was brought my steak was warm, the mashed potatoes and the veggies were cold. If it wasn't for Mary I would have given 2 stars. They were very busy, and maybe there was a shortage of food runners, I only saw one.
Awesome place! The food, the music(Kelly Neff) the atmosphere… could not have been better. Jim the GM, Kelly our waitress were both great! We will return and refer to others. Make reservations at least 3 weeks in advance. You won’t be sorry. Thanks for a very enjoyable evening.
The real Macaw has been a long-time family favorite! Our most recent dinner was great all the way around. Food was delicious - loved my salmon and our server was very attentive. We were there on a Saturday night and the live music was great. The atmosphere can't be beat - sitting outside and enjoying a Key West vibe and a bit of "Old Florida."
