Wild Mushroom Bordelaise
stuffed, boiled, and grilled with seasonal vegetables
light crab fritter & seafood remoulade
The best place to eat in Hattiesburg. I have traveled world and filet is equal anywhere. The fish also eaten by my party also stated same.
My only concern is that enough people read this evaluation to keep them busy but not to busy that I cannot get a reservation or they increase prices.
Excellent service. The beef tenderloin was so flavorful and tender. Best bread pudding.
I thought the food quality would have been better. Not bad by any means but my expectations were higher. The steak was not a classic well grilled edges one but just a basic steak. Bar inside though was nice.
Great food, and the staff is amazing.
Our family had a very nice evening and pre-Christmas dinner! Seth was our server and did a great job! Thanks.
We've celebrated our Anniversary every year at the Purple Parrot and by far it's the most romantic and quiet place in the 'Burg. Love it and they always fulfill my "special requests". They had a glass of my wife's wine and my Sazerac waiting on me with a little table banner with our names and happy anniversary with a rose and after our meal had a desert for us with Happy Anniversary written in icing around the plate......We'll always go there for Valentines day and/or our Anniversary...Thanks so very much and Highly Highly recommend!!!
Can you say “never again”? The minute we walked in the door we were “warned” of the large party upstairs. We should’ve left at that point. But after an 8 hour drive returning from vacation we were looking forward to a nice meal. Waiter kept rushing us to order. And take heed, This is important! The menu on the Open Table site is NOT the same menu in restaurant! They claimed they recently changed to their fall menu! Yes, over half the items on open table menu fell off!!! Bread came out cold,Duck rolls cold with a bbq sauce not hoisin, both entrees were cold. My short rib osso bucco arrived without the red wine Demi glacé. They tried to make up for their shortcomings by offering dessert. No thanks! Manager apologetic but too little, too late.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Our family members arrived earlier than our reservation to put flowers on the table and bring a celebration cake. We were celebrating the first anniversary for my sister and brother-in-law who got married for the second time later in life. As the cake was presented they brought us each a small glass of champagne to celebrate! Wonderful evening! Thank you!
Was a special date night for my 10 year old daughter and I. Waiter made it very special for her and also treated us to a white chocolate bread pudding which was amazing.
One of the best Restaurants we eaten at in a long time. We were just passing through and were pleasantly surprised at this Restaurant. Highly recommended.
Excellent dining experience- April took great care of us !!!
Food was great!!!
We will be back soon
Great place to entertain for business. Great food, great service and a great atmosphere to have a conversation.
I had heard great things about this place. After seeing the 4+star rating on trip advisor and reading the great reviews, we decided to give it a try. Unfortunately we were very disappointed. The atmosphere was inviting, quite but comfortable. The service was accommodating. However the food was sub par. I ordered the grilled fish of the day, which came highly recommended. The fish was definitely not fresh. Very strong fish flavor. I was unable to eat anything that was on the plate as it all had the same strong fishy taste. My son ordered the Wagyu hanger steak and he said it was good. My husband ordered the short ribs, he said it was decent. We had hoped for an awesome experience, but unfortunately we will probably not return.
Ambience is exceptional. Food was delicious. Five stars!
Spend all of our anniversaries there
The filet was cooked to perfection but the brussel sprouts were burnt and undercooked.
Great dinner with great service! Enjoyed taking a business associate from another state for a delicious meal.
We were celebrating my parents 62 years of marriage. We were greeted with a glass of champagne and well wishes! The server, Ethan, was wonderful! The hostess and Manager; Jordan were awesome as well! The food and wine was great!
The absolute best place in town for a quiet meal . The wait staff are very efficient and the food is always delicious . The environment is beautiful and enables you to escape the busy world outside . It is perfect !
Oleg was a polite and attentive waiter without being overbearing- perfect! Food was excellent & fresh, as were our drinks and coffee. Alway love coming to this funky & fun place when we stop in Rehoboth.
Best date night spot !!! My favorite place to eat in Hattiesburg!!!
We arrived the restaurant about 630pm... We were the 3rd or 4th table (out of 25 or so in the restaurant seated. Let's keep in mind this is in Hattiesburg MS, not NYC, CHI or LA. It was rated the best in town. Hattiesburg is dotted with chains like Chilis, Outback, Olive Garden and others. We order the fried green tomatoes for an app. It was ok, but not what i had expected in this southern location. I've had better in other paces like New Orleans and Atlanta. Our main course was rack of lamb and the fish special. The fish was over cooked, and the lamb was -warm- like it sat in the warming window too long. The side fo green beans was good, but no slivered almonds as was written in the menu. Service was good, and wines by the glass were normal offerings, 2 from each varietal.
The dining room nice with low level lighting and candles throughout on white linen.
The service was good with water glasses refilled, and new silver presented with the courses. If business called me back to Hattiesburg, i might go to another place,, perhaps the more casual sister property (with better ratings) next door.
I was visiting my mother from Ft Worth, TX and had a lovely time. Thank you Cole!
GREAT FOOD AND SERVICE...WE ALSO ENJOYED TALKING WITH THE MANAGER
ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE RESTAURANT...
Great food, very nice wine list and a great wait staff! A definite do over when I am back in town!
Very elegant. Ethan was great. Went for a 46th birthday lunch. Great service and great food
This restaurant used to be a favorite....no more...I think Mr St John has lost interest in this restaurant. Food was barely average...
Our service team was outstanding. We had the Thai themed tasting menu and it didn’t disappoint! Will definitely return!
My wife and I were in Hattiesburg and had a great experience at the Purple Parrot. Gumbo was excellent as were the drum and the beef short rib. Excellent service as well.
Always love going to Purple Parrot.
Had dinner with family members from all over the country for a wedding. Loved the summer menu! Especially enjoyed the cedar wrapped fish.
Overall a good experience, the deserts could have been better but the service was outstanding and the ambiance and noise level made for a pleasant evening for our 51st wedding anniversary and our son’s 37th birthday.
Menu was not very exciting. They were out of Jack Daniels and TX Whiskey. I’ve never been to a place that had no Jack Daniels.
The waiter, Cole, tried hard and was very apologetic. Maybe it was just an off night...
Ask the server for drink recommendations. The wines and cocktails were the perfect accompaniment to the always delicious meals at Purple Parrot. Don’t miss the seafood gumbo and fresh fish.
The food was delicious, and the servings were generous. The fried green tomato appetizer was a meal in itself. Great gumbo, too. I will return if I am in Hattiesburg.
Awesome experience for dinner. Who knew that they manage the noise level by managing the number of people dining at any one time? Dont miss this one.
Outstanding service and food! Don’t miss the opportunity to dine here!!
Always a great meal and great environment. My wife is a celiac and they take great care to serve her special needs.
I am always satisfied with the staff and quality of the food at Purple Parrot, no exceptions.
Absolutely incredible experience. I had the opportunity of proposing to my girlfriend here, and the experience was picture-perfect. The staff was incredibly welcoming and accommodating, and the food was worth writing home about. Fantastic experience!
