We had 8pm reservation and did not get served any food we ordered until 9:30. We had to ask for bread. We weren’t seated until 8:30.
We had high expectations based on recommendations from friends
Charming ambiance, delicious food and attentive service. We went on Valentine's Day for a romantic evening and The Real McCaw delivered. We had a corner table in a little room where it was quiet and pretty. There was a prix fixe menu but we ordered from the regular one which had many choices, all appealing but we chose the onion soup and the roasted duck. It was a great choice.
We were at the Real Macaw for Valentine’s Day. My grouper dinner was wonderful..with yummy curried cauliflower and roasted Brussels sprouts. I’ll go again soon!
ALL of the food was excellent. The service was good. The Caribbean ambiance was comfortable. My only complaint was the price. I would like to dine there more often, but for my middle-class tastes, the price makes it a once-a-year consideration only.
Dined w/a friend. Service was exceptional and the food was A-W-E-S-O-M-E! I had the salmon crusted with nuts, exceptional. Its a must visit if you are in town
I love the eclectic nature of The Real Macaw...you walk in and you know it will be fun.
My only complaint was with the food...we were not finished with our first course and we noticed out entrees "waiting" on a tray nearby. This resulted in less than ideal serving temperatures. I had ordered the porterhouse pork chop and it was overcooked. My table guests thought their food (grouper, mushroom tower) was wonderful. I love the tropical dishes that are at the table when you enter the restaurant and I noticed more than one person checking the bottom of the dish for the brand...Mikasa!
We will be back.
Very good food at a fair price - not out to gouge you and I would have liked to give it 5 stars but the service was poor. We really liked our waiter and he was working hard but they need more help. Waited very long between courses and drink orders...loved the outside ambience and the chowder of the day was delicious!
As always a great meal at a unique Naples treasure. See you soon
Great outdoor seating. The food was good and service excellent especially having 7 people to please.
We've been going to the Real Macaw for 20 years, and have never had a bad meal yet. Love the colorful Key West ambience, and the friendliness of the staff.
Been there several times. Food was a disappointment this time. Large party was over-celebrating and too noisy
Crab cake was outstanding. I had the Island chicken with a flavorful sauce along with Kielbasa and shrimp. The Jonny cakes with strawberry butter were soooo good - a good to soak up the Island chicken sauce. I also had the caramel gelato. It was so smooth and creamy - maybe the best i ever had. Our server, Gidget, was the best. She was ever present when we needed something and the most pleasant. I highly recommend The Real Macaw
Great place off the beaten path!
Loved the service and the ambiance. Very uniquely decorated and loved it. My food was cold, disappointed, but I will go back and try again.
We went two nights in a row! Just a fun night with excellent dinner! And drinks were awesome too
Food is great as always, service very good. When tables are full it can be noisy. Otherwise a good choice.
Great meal. Always a wonderful ambiance.
Great food and service but way too loud.
Another great evening at The Real Macaw, this time with out of town family who are real foodies. They were charmed by the funky Caribbean ambiance and much impressed and enjoyed all their food selections. For starters, the flavorful BBQ ribs plate was a real hit as was my seafood chowder and my spouse's Caesar salad. For the mains, the bouillabaisse was richly filled with treats from the deep; the curry chicken and Down Island chicken both were tender, well-prepared, and delicious; and the sea scallops were expertly prepared and presented. Our server Casey was prompt, helpful, and friendly; restaurant owner Jean made several visits to be assured all was well at our table. The Real Macaw was become one of our "go-to" places for a great evening out as a couple or with special guests.
We love the ambiance- the outdoor seating with the live music ( not loud). Service was very attentive. Scallops entree and calamari salad were both the best I’ve ever had.
Good service and great friendly waitress👍🏽 We will be back very soon !
Food is delicious and beautifully presented. Our waiter was very attentive without being intrusive. The owner was also present and very personable.
Our first visit here in a few years. The food was very good and the service was excellent. An interesting place. This very nice restaurant attached to this really relaxed bar area. Looking forward to our next visit.
There are many similarly priced restaurants with much better food. Very slow service as well.
We had a table of 8. Jean the hostess was a delight and service was good. Food was great and the atmosphere has that old Florida feel. Will return.
Great service. Fun bar area and quiet dining area. Beautiful outdoor seating.
One of our go to places in Naples, exceptional service and food.
It was too loud to allow conversation without yelling
The food was great and the server was attentive.
Always have a great meal! We chose the goat cheese salad, Madagascar tuna and Caribbean steak. Never disappointed here. Love both the outdoor and indoor seating. We were a party of 5 never rushed with attentive wait staff . Have been here a few times but plan on coming back often!
Have dined at The Real Macaw for many years. Always consistently great. We always have a good time there.
Lovely island feel. Good food. Friendly staff. Love the Johnnie Cakes!
Jeannie, your future host, may very well be the last of the old Naples restaurant rock stars. With a solid kitchen and wait staff, The Real Macaw is a standout in Naples. Quality ingredients start to finish. Salmon true to wild, cooked to perfection. Their signature jerk kills it on meat and poultry. Soups, salads, and entree sides all compliment a superb menu. The best duck in town. The best key lime pie in town. In a nutshell, the best restaurant in town.
Fabulous food. Jean the owner is such an amazing hostess always. Great ambiance.
A secret gem in Naples, low key Carribean vibe similar to a key west style. Excellent food, excellent service, wonderful owner. Will be back often
Great food in a relaxed setting!
The Real McCaw is one of our Naples favorites - we always enjoy returning for excellent meals in a funky atmosphere, especially when we eat in the outdoor courtyard. This time we splurged on their New Year's Eve special celebration meal. Everything was delicious - my rack of lamb and my wife's seared duck were both well-prepared and tastefully presented. The only flaw in our multi-course meals was one of our desserts, my wife's creme brulee, had not set and was served very runny - still edible, but not as a good creme brulee should be served! Incidentally, my creme brulee came out just fine. All in all, we enjoyed our meals thoroughly and give The Real McCaw kudos for a fine evening - we'll be back!
