Papagayo is my favorite restaurant in the world. For ten years I lived 250 steps from its front door, and I made full use of that advantage. As I rated in my review, everything about The Parrot is the best, but it’s the people who put it over the top. The original owner Francois was amazing, and a great friend, and the current owners are trying hard and doing a pretty good job. The people though—I consider the servers, bus boys, waiters/waitresses, bartenders, etc. personal friends, and the local musicians could not be nicer, especially the John Bennett Band, Lou Shook’s Sole machine, 3 on a Tree, Jeff Moore, and all the others. They could have one or two more parking spots, though.

We’ve been before but this time good wasn’t good except one item. They sat us in a very drafty area and loud. Ordered a skinny margarita and it tasted like dirty water sent back. Ordered ceviche shrimp tomatoes onions with no taste and stale chips . Grilled artichoke had almost no meat on leaves and chicken spring rolls greasy and not good. Honestly for $90 for three people only one who has a glass of wine value stunk and we won’t go back even though we are local

The food was excellent and the waitstaff were outstanding! They were very busy but saw to our table before we needed a thing. They work so efficiently as a team. I've been there several times and I am always extremely pleased. The live music is great! Overall, I highly recommend Le Papagayo !

My wife and I spend our few and far between evenings out together with the great folks at Le Papagayo. The staff is always courteous and quick to ensure that we are taken care of. We've never had a dish that we didn't enjoy and tell our friends to give them a try! Thanks so much Le Papagayo for continuously making our nights out special :)
