It usually is a good restaurant but last time I went the service was very slow and forgetful. The bar was full and apparently affected the service in the restaurant area. It is a pity that it ad to be like that. Otherwise, all good.

First off let me say that even though I have lived in this area most of my adult life, this was the first time that I have been to this restaurant. When I started planning something special for our 20th anniversary it just kinda popped into my head. So one week before I made a reservation and let the Hostess... More

A couple of concerns first- in the table waiting area the ceiling tile is water stained, not what you would expect from an upscale dining venue. Also felt seating took long, we waited 5 minutes and the place was empty. Now to the food- we had grouper, Mahi mahi, tuna and black drum-- all were excellent! The house salad with... More

Excellent dinner. My wife and I both had Mahi Mahi. The house salad was delicious. Best gumbo I've ever had, bar none. The Mahi was lightly breaded, which gave it a unique taste and texture. Next trip I will order 2 bowls of gumbo and skip the desert.

I love this restaurant. The ambiance is intimate and upper class. The menu is amazing and a bit pricey but well worth it. My husband brought me here for my birthday dinner and I ordered a prime filet that was the best I've ever eaten. We let the waiter pick our desserts and they were decadent and sumptuous. Best meal...

A taste of New Orleans right in the Hub City! Purple Parrot is consistently a quality dining experience! Flavorful offerings such as the crab cakes and fish dishes in a wonderful atmosphere. An elegant dining experience, good portions, great service!

We are new to town and coming here I thought it was a casual cafe. Upon entering my husband and I quickly realized this was a fine dining experience. We were a little underdressed but the waiter greeted us warmly and made several suggestions on the best dishes. I had the red fish. My husband had the Greek chicken. Both... More

From the time we stepped into restaurant we knew it was our kind of place. Quiet..romantic..gourmet food and interesting mixed drinks. The bar,which, is where we sat, stocked many high quality liquors. Food was exceptionally presented and delicious..had the scallops and veal with sweetbreads and two different specialty drinks. Would go again to this restaurant but we are just passing... More

This is a quiet, white tablecloth restaurant with surprisingly inexpensive lunch menu. The prices will not scare you away. Dinner menu is fabulous too. This is one of the best restaurants in the state. Be sure to check out the wines also.
