Great little restaurant loaded with florida troplcal ambiance. We had a quiet table outside away from the live music, which by the way, was fun and lively. Good food. Good service. Good fun.

The food was good. Our waitress was nice. The hostess/manager/owner was an absolute witch. My boyfriend complained that his salad was very small for a $17 salad. It was. She said it was because of the goat cheese. She didn't offer anything but kept hovering and then later she said she would have if he hadn't been nasty. He wasn't nasty at all. She basically told him to leave and not come back. Needless to say, we won't.

This quaint eclectic venue has indoor & outdoor seating available as well as a separate bar area. They have a decent wine list, creative cocktails and a nice menu with an island flair. Food was reasonably priced and nicely portioned. Our server was knowledgeable and made good suggestions for both food and beverage choices. We love to out of town friends here, it always makes an impression!

We had not been to this restaurant in some time and decided to dine there with some friends who had never been there. Most of the evening was fine. There were a couple of exceptions though. Our friend’s tuna tartare had a displeasing taste to it. We waited and waited for our server to come to the table to at least check to see how our appetizers were but she did not come. So I had to get up and find someone to explain the issue to, who was a different server, who was extremely accommodating. They took back the tuna tartare and replaced it with the salmon entree which was delicious. While everywhere else’s food was very good, the service was a definite issue. No one came to check on such minor things like refilling our water glasses, another glass of wine, or just to make sure everything was ok. I think we would certainly return, but I would sincerely hope that they place an emphasis on improving the service.

So disappointed after reading other reviews of this restaurant raving about the food on other sites. I had the duck as did one other guest at our table. She said hers was dry. Mine tasted just ordinary, nothing special. Another one of our table mates had the steak. He also told me it was just ok. It looked really fatty and mushy. Our last table mate had the fish wrapped in phyllo. He thought it was very good. All in all, I thought this restaurant was over-priced, way over-priced for the dinners we received. I have eaten downtown Naples for less money and had better food. Moreover, the noise level is very loud. We could barely hear our conversation. The one positive thing I can say about our evening was that the server was attentive. I will not be going back.

A quirky upscale restaurant hidden in Naples is a must for your list of places to dine. The Johnnycakes with strawberry butter are amazing, order extra they are that good. I had the Duck and my wife had the fillo dough wrapped Mahi both were delicious. This is a place we will visit again.

This is a hidden gem a bit out of the way from downtown Naples, but the ambiance, service and food make any trip worth it. The menu is limited to what is fresh and available, and the preparation is careful and quick. Great cocktails and a grownup’s wine list.

This is our 3rd time at The Real Macaw this season! Last Friday we took our good friends from Minneapolis. They loved the "Old Florida" atmosphere. They both ordered the seared tuna (at my husband's suggestion) and raved about the quality of the fish and the perfection of the preparation. I had the crispy duck (again!) and loved the sauce. I only wish I could have had the rice with it instead of the mashed potatoes...I should have asked. We shared a slice of the key lime pie. I have it every time because it's not overly sweet and the crust is to die for! the only negative I might mention is that the dining room is pretty noisy. But that's forgivable because the Queen Ann wicker chairs, the colorful dinner ware and the twinkling lights make up for it. The service was a little slow, but understandable considering the crowd. Our servers, however were energetic and charming.

We’ve been meaning to visit this restaurant for sometime now. Chose a Tuesday evening in the hopes of less diners. There were diners surrounding us. The drinks were special, I loved my Le Vogue! Salads and entrees were above average and the dessert, Key Lime Pie, atmosphere, put the place into the “5 Star” category. We’ll return.

This place really delivered. The evening we went there was a torrential rainstorm and we thought we would probably have to wait as the storm obviously would eliminate some of their outdoor seating. They did an incredible job of reconfiguring tables indoors and it turned out great. We all loved our entrees; I had the duck and it was superb with a very light, tangy sauce and my husband had the MahiMahi and thought it outstanding. Our waiter did a great job particularly given the crowded surroundings; we didn’t lack for a thing. We have always liked this restaurant but after this I am an even bigger fan.

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the restaurant, love the atmosphere and decor. The food was very good, our waitress was not very friendly I thought it might have been because she had too many tables, however it was not that busy and there seemed to be a few people assisting her. May she just had a bad day...

Service was not what we are accustomed to at Real Macaw.
Ordered pork tenderloin got pork loin. Charged more for soup than price on menu.
Seated near rest room when all other. Tables were available.
We have recommended Real Macaw to numerous people in the past. I hope when we go back to have a much better experience.
Waiter was inattentive had to flag him down for water, etc
