Le Papagayo Ratings and Reviews
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 :)
We love this restaurant and go every time we are in town the atmosphere on the patio is very nice especially in the evening we were there Valentine’s Day and inside the restaurant was much louder and not as relaxing the food choices are great and the service was good we will stop again when we are in town
We had a great time, waitress was great and I seen her there for many years. We had a date night and really enjoyed the food and dancing little bit bye our table. Over all love your place and we have been coming now little over 5 years. Thanks for a wonderful evening. Amy
Great consistent place . One thing bothered me I was going to this restaurant for year the previous owner was greeting me every time . The new ownership they have a manager who treated me nicely
This time I had reservation they gave me a small table in the corner for 2 the couple behind us came in and they gave them a big table nice . I asked for the manager they told me the owner is here today the owner ( I think was greeting everybody and he ignored my table ) the server was a great lady the person who served water remembered me and treated us nicely . I am not sure about the new owner or if it was him why he made a point to avoid me . I purchased gift cards from there for any friend or family who moved there . I loved that place . But now I am upset
And don’t know if I will go there again
The food was good, but pricey. They added a 20% gratuity to the bill for a table of eight. We sat inside near the outdoor patio, which wasn't the best because the servers were constantly walking by with food orders. The outdoor lower patio looked inviting, but it was reserved for other guests.
The food was superb, the service very good but the ambiance was missing. We could not hear each other over the band; worse yet, bar patrons hung over our table. Despite this, we would return again for the food if it was warm enough to sit outside or there was no band playing. All meals, especially the seafood were amazing! Pricing is very reasonable for the high quality of the food and generous portion size.
Sadly the whole experience was not very good. Appetizer - crab cake was frozen in the middle - sent it back after tracking down wait staff after 10 min. It came back out long after the main course. Staff was disorganized and dressed in whatever they wanted to wear (killed the ambiance). Main course (prime rib) was good but nothing special. I really think this restaurant could be amazing if it had some structure, quality control and standards. I may try it again at some point but really bummed I wasted my new years dinner here.
Wow. Don't know how this place has escaped us for the last few years. Killer seafood and other stuff. Nice selection of beer. Good wine list. Parking is interesting but Leucadia always is a little challenging but much easier than Del Mar or Encinitas. We will become regulars. Just a cool place.
We had a pleasant evening, and our server was very good. We arrived on time and were seated promptly. However, we did not have a choice between indoor or outdoor seating, and had to sit on the patio. They did have heaters, but not enough, and I was somewhat chilled for the whole meal. Next time I'll know to request an indoor table during the cooler weather.
I met a friend here for a catch up dinner on the lovely patio. We both enjoyed our meals and the sangria. Our server was wonderful and very helpful. The only hiccup was the hostess- the restaurant entry is a bit awkward and I was unsure of where to wait for a table. The hostess wasn't very helpful or welcoming. Overall enjoyed the experience.
The restaurant has a problem with it's online reservation system. We made a reservation on Open table and received an email with the reservation info. We went to the restaurant and the reservation was not in the system at the restaurant and the manger could not or would not seat us indoors (when I made the reservation I specifically requested indoor seating). We noticed that it happened to at least one other party. The manager was overwhelmed and unable to provide us with a satisfactory seating and so we left. Clearly, there were two problems: the first was with the reservation and the second was with the way that the restaurant dealt with the lost reservation.
Having been to Le Papagayo many many times, it is consistantly excellent. I have always eaten the tapis but the main courses look fantastic. Service has always been top notch, however, this last time the waitress appeared disinterested and not really into the evening. I felt like we were doing her a favor by being there, but she warmed up a bit towards the end of the evening. The Dynamite is absolutely fantastic if you like a hot sea food in a white sauce. The Flat breads are really good and they seemed very fresh. We ordered way too much but the chicken is VERY hot and wonderful , just keep wine or water handy. I would pass on the grilled artichokes, I can eat them at home any time....I am going back soon for another birthday. It is good for happy hour after that...expensive but well worth it, just dont order as much as we did for two. Love the interesting flavors and presentation.
