I really enjoyed the Key West like
atmosphere/decor,. When we arrived there was confusion as to whether we had reservations in the indoor fancier part of the restaurant ior the more casual part then they concluded we didn't have reservations at all. They pointed to Open Table as being the culprit. After a rocky start and a very cool waitress who later relaxed we had a nice meal. Good but not exceptional."

We were looking for light meals. I
checked the menus online before we went, but didn't understand there are two different parts to the restaurant, each with a different menu. When we were seated, we were not appraised of this. Unfortunately, we were seated in the fancier section. Food was very expensive, given the casual atmosphere. We ordered overpriced appetizers and salads. Portion sizes were small, and the goat cheese salad was nothing to write home about. We asked to see the dessert menu, and the waitress reeled off the selections. We ordered creme brulee without asking the price--$11.00, and the tops were burned. With a tip, the bill came to $90 for 2 small salads, one appetizers, a diet coke and 3 creme brulees."

We were a little disappointed that
we got such a tiny piece of fish for 26.00 and not only that but we got a side of frozen veggies and bland rice. I was disappointed with another restaurant in naples that is more concerned about how much money they can earn rather than the quality. For 26.00 I'd expect fresh veggies at least and maybe a more interesting pilaf."

Been here a few times and food ok
without being special, however, this time we were confronted with valet parking which we did not want. Unfortunately how they have it set up you are almost forced into using it. We will not be going back."

We love the atmosphere at the Real
Macaw and have been coming for a number of years. It's a great place to bring out-of-town guests. Cute with vibrant Caribbean colors and resident parrot Brandy. We chose to sit on the porch under the trees. Our friends had the tuna and said it was best they'd had in a very long time. I love the Caribbean chicken and my husband had the pork tenderloin. Everything prepared to perfection. We love this place!!"

We visit Naples for a few months
every year. One of our friends down here took us to McCaws and we fell in love with it. Reminds of a key west restaurant. We sit at the bar tables and enjoy great drinks and food. Prices are very reasonable for what you get. The service is excellent. We live at the beach in Delaware and love places like this."

We had a group of 6 for dinner. We
enjoyed everything about the Real Macaw. Food, service & ambience was excellent. Would highly recommend."

Have eaten at the Real McCaw
several times and have always had good food. Really like the atmosphere and outside dining. The service at my last visit was terrible but I wouldn't let that deter anyone from a visit. Hopefully that was the exception not the rule. There are no vegetarian entrees and no effort to accomodate vegetarians, but then I've found that Naples in general is not a very progressive town with regard to vegetarian offerings. The vegetarian in the group had the mushroom appetizer as his entree and said it was excellant."

Always have had a good dining

I was there on Sunday night, the
restaurant was NOT busy. The service was terrible. Our waiter was extremely slow with the drinks and rolls. Everybody got there drinks at different times. The food was good, nothing out of the ordinary, but the portions were small. My husband left hungry. The prices are very high. I don't mind paying high prices if the restaurant is worthy, but this was not worthy of what we paid and we will not be returning or recommending it."

Had a party of five. Had a
wonderful server, gave us good recommendations. The calamari was enough to share for the table. Two of us had the special sea bass and it was incredible. Always take out of town guests here. Never disappointed. The only negative is that it was very loud in the dining room, this was probably due to everyone having such a good time."
Dined on 3/15/2014
Had lunch here a few days ago and,
though the service was slow then too, was excited to bring my other half to try the Real McCaw. The restaurant itself is adorable, but the full dining menu was very pricy and the food was only just ok. Waited about 15 minutes past our reservation for a table and then another 10 minutes for the waitress to come to the table. May come back for lunch, but the food and service were just not good enough to justify a $100 meal for 2 (sans liquor)."

Normally it is great service, this
last visit was a slow and confused waiter."

Wasn't sure what to expect but
must say pleasantly surprised. Food was great , service good and atmosphere fun yet elegant. Will definitely go back especially for live music nights."

This restaurant is a gem. I have
been coming to Naples for 25 years and this place is now one of my very favorites. Wish I had discovered it years ago. Excellent piña coladas, crab cakes and key lime pie. Good entertainment and fun atmosphere. Casual dining with excellent food,"

We always look forward to dining
at the Real Macaw. It rarely disappoints us and we take guests there frequently. Wonderful ambiance."

This colorful hideaway is like a
trip to the Caribbean. The food and the ambiance evoked sun and the sea. Nothing tricky just simple prepared perfectly."
Dined on 2/15/2014
Paid high prices for poor
food/drink shabby surroundings and not great service. Not sure how this restaurant has survived for so long. We won't be returning or recommending it to our friends."
Dined on 2/14/2014
Suffice it to say that the food
was excellent! However and its a big however the service and the way the establishment is run leave a whole lot to be desired. One example, the hostess who had great difficulty finding our reservation had to go home and change her clothing which was totally inappropriate for a hostess in a nice restautant .A second would be that no fresh ground bepper was offerer for our caesar salads and there was no salt nor pepper on the table It is a shame that the establishment is not managed properly because the food was excellent."

Was a little apprehensive reading
some of the bad reviews, but The Real Macaw is 5 stars. Six of us dined in the quaint dining room, which is the perfect setting. Joyce our waitress was exceptional, and Kim the hostess was a real hoot. Reviewing the menu on-line, my heart was set on the duck, and without a doubt, the best duck I ever had. Moist and crispy on the outside. Three Sea Bass dinners also got rave reviews, as did the Salmon dinner. The beef Wellington was also rated with high marks. When coupled with the great Manhattens, and house wines which were very good, The Real Macaw is hard to beat. I also had occasion to have the Kobe beef burger at lunch some time ago, and it was a real treat. Tell them the ex Govenor sent you."

My husband & I enjoyed Ahi Tuna &
Kobe burgers for our Valentine's Day lunch. The food was really great. My husband keeps talking about the great Kobe burger! This restaurant is like something out of Old Florida -- pink & green abounds."

A great find and feel with the

I dined at this restaurant last
year so I though it would be fun to go again.(though we ate in the restaurant dinning room, then) Well it was pretty empty, 2 other couples were in the bar area. So instead of eating in the dinning room we decide to have dinner in the bar area. Service was awful, waitresses were taking their breaks two tables away from us, smoking and talking on their phones. Food was OK, at best and expensive. Atmosphere was that of a dirty Key West bar dive. Would suggest to go somewhere else!!!!!!"

Year after year the menu never
varies-would like to see some changes"

A delightful, comfortable
destination for dinner. We always take our out-of-town friends there and have never been disappointed. Food, service, atmosphere - all hit a high mark. Bob especially loves the duck. Sometimes we just order several appetizers for the table and make that dinner (with wine and desserts, of course). Its a great stop for a light, late lunch, too."
Dined on 1/31/2014
First time visit . I try duck as I
have traveled around the country. I have only really enjoyed three different preparations. This was one of them-excellent! The entire meal was very good! My wife had the Salmon and fund it to be excellent also. Next time we will bring friends."

I have no idea how this place has
any positive reviews. It is as expensive as many of the nicer restaurants in Naples, but the food was terrible. The lobster bisque was not the usual pink, but literally pea soup green. The filet was extremely petite...more like bite sized. The mashed potatoes were definitely instant. The "chocolate mousse" was definitely chocolate jello pudding (which don't get me wrong, reminded me of my childhood, but I dont' want to pay $10 for it!)"

A little off the beaten path
geographically, menu and decor-wise, we always enjoy the lay-back Key West feel here. You can't go wrong ordering anything on the menu. And live entertainment Thurs-Sun just adds to the experience."

Fantastic, delicious food.Creative
menu without being too rich. Attentive wait staff. Caribbean decor. Very intimate. Quiet and off the beaten path."

ambience is lovely and christmasy
, service was a bit slow, three out of four diners liked their meal... one did not like the down south chicken."

We've had dinner at the Real Macaw
a number of times. Each time has been memorable. The ambiance is amazingly beautiful and peaceful in the dining room. Dining on the Deck is lush and fun. The bar is friendly and welcoming. The food is consistently interesting, novel and delicious beyond expectation. There is music on Friday and Saturday nights, and there's room for dancing on the deck. That adds a lovely additional treat. After dinner this last time, we left the dining room and got a table on the deck so that we could have another cocktail and dance. All in all it was a lovely evening."

Have had several delicious dinners
at Real McCaw in past years. Not this one. Several items on the menu and wine list were "unavailable" - and the night was yet early. While the appetizers were 'good', the entrees were bland and rather disinterestedly prepared. I remembered a bright, fresh tropical meal, bursting with flavor, even enjoyed the sides last visit. Sadly, this dinner was boring and tasteless. The waiter was friendly (if overtaxed by the small gathering) and the owner, as always was extremely amicable. The mc caw was... real. The experience, forgettable."

We've enjoyed The Real Macaw
several times and found this time to be missing something. We were the only people in the dining room. There was what looked (and sounded) to be a large birthday party in an adjacent room that just seemed to suck all of the resources from the restaurant. The food was good and the service was friendly and upbeat, but the entire experience was missing something. The Macaw was missing and the entertainment seemed a bit out of character. Except for the large party, the place was practically empty and perhaps seemed a bit lonesome. We had guests from out of town and planned on staying in the bar after dinner for the entertainment, but it was practically empty and not inviting as an upbeat way to entertain our guests."
