Yeah. Everything here is amazing... Eating here is quite pricey, but for a special occasion or romantic date, this is the place to go. We still come here on occasion for a drink and desert, because as I stated earlier, they're AMAZING!

We had to wait for a while to get the food after we ordered, my food was cold, when I told the waiter he took the plate and brought it back after they reheated it in the microwave. They brought chicken for our little girl instead of shrimp and the food came in a very small portion. The restaurant is... More

Excellent service, menu items are prepared well, however, in my opinion, the minue is limited. A bit pricey , but nice when you want to celebrate. They sometimes offer specials for the day. Purple Parrot has delicious desserts too.
