Papi's Oyster Bar
We had 5 friends for a Birthday Party. Food was great, happy hour menu. I had the Entree, which was disappointing, as was the Gin based Chocolate Martini. Seating was excellant! We had a great time, but missed Birthday sparkelers!
Owner was great! Food was great!
Great food, location, and service. We had a great dinner and will be back.
Amazing food, seemed understaffed but it was Valentine’s day. Great service regardless!!
Attended for their Dine Out menu. Good value for the dishes and the type of restaurant. Staff were friendly, patient, and attentive. Our favorites were the seafood tart, vegetable mille feuille and the sticky toffee pudding. I would return just for dessert tbh. I look forward to returning to try their spaghetti vongole!
Service and food was amazing. It was a quiet night but still we were impressed by the personal service by both waitress and manager who may have been the owner. Oysters were so yummy as were our mains. Wine beer and sangria all were enjoyed. Will return soon.
Delicious food and wine. Enjoyed the quiet atmosphere. We would dine here again.
We had a great experience at Papi’s on New Years Eve! Everything exceeded our expectations ! Great oysters, amazing lobster bisque,....and good value for money.
Very friendly and attentive service. We’ll be back!
Friendly and efficient service of tasty, good-value food from a well-considered menu. We loved the funghi and burrata salad as well as the arctic char and charcoal battered oysters. Happy to have a really good restaurant in the neighbourhood.
The ambiance was warm and welcoming as was the greeting from the Manager. I would recommend the restaurant for the ambiance, with a caveat ... The food was creative - the tuna ceviche was fresh and delicious, the Calamarata was wonderful, and the mussels were delicious. We also ordered the braised beef, and while that was delectable, the portion was quite small for the most expensive main on the menu.
Thank you team and thank you Alesandro for the fun ambience. Thank you chef Alvarez we follow you wherever you go ; )
Papi's is an excellent addition to the West End. We enjoyed the Lobster Risotto and the Seared Arctic Char and Clams with Veggies. Both dishes were extremely well prepared with fresh seafood and tasty seasoning. Service was attentive, but not intrusive. We were just two, but the restaurant is nicely set up to accommodate groups of 4, 6 or even larger with a nice separation of a large group room from the regular restaurant so the conversation noise does not get overwhelming. We will definitely recommend this restaurant to all of our friends.
Felt for it was overpriced for what we got. Food was so-so in presentation and taste.
I'll be back. Service is friendly and knowledgable, with good recommendations from the oyster menu. The food was excellent. The Branzino, a new dish for me, was delicious.
We had a great experience as a party of 8. The manager was very friendly and gave us complimentary drinks as well as a piece of cake for one of our guests birthdays. The service was excellent, I would go back for that alone. Definitely a great up and coming spot!
The restaurant is well situated just off Denman and beach avenue. The patio is very nice to sit and watch the sunset in the evening. The food was very tasty and well priced! The owner was extremely accommodating to us for our return visit by setting us up at a nice table on the patio when we came with our friends from out of town. Great experience. Would highly recommend.
We were delighted to experience this night of the fireworks! Great table Great food Great service!
Alessandro was a very generous
This was my first time at Papi's and I enjoyed the patio service and view. The vibe is easy and relaxed. My companion and I both had the fish and chips and we both really like our meal as well as our wine that was chosen for us. The salsa with corn tortilla chip starter was one of those pointless and annoying dishes. Why do restaurants skimp on tortilla chips? [or fries?] These are inexpensive food items that make people happy yet usually don't prevent people from ordering more food either. The calamari was delicious but a bit sparse. I feel that one should stick to the mains and maybe pass on the sides. As a neighbourhood restaurant I'm looking forward to visiting again. Thanks
Fabulous location right on Denman near Davie, this should be a wonderful dining experience. Unfortunately, the food and service didn't live up to the ambience. Nothing was terrible, but nothing was very special either. The fish and chips were okay.
The service was somewhat haphazard.
new seafood centered venue with a lovely patio that has been extended, come for a sunset dinner
Alejandro you were wonderful, thank you! Unfortunately our waiter was a nightmare. He had the focus of a squirrel. So we had to leave and never got to try your food.
Food was amazing
