Top notch in all areas. Highest quality food prepared by an extremely talented kitchen staff. Broad menu. Severs who are professional and take pride in their work. Elegant ambiance unsurpassed in Orange County. Roomy plush leather booths, fresh flowers on every table and crisp white table cloths are just a few reasons to dine at the Pelican Grill.

From the friendly people at the front desk to the wait staff, you couldn't feel more welcomed. The rooms are large, the tables are far apart, and you can hear what your companions are saying. The food is very good--do not miss the pretzel rolls. You are never hurried here and can truly enjoy the ambiance and your companions. This... More

Newport Beach, part of the Orange County enclave, is fabulous! The coastal views are spectacular and obviously, this alone is its selling point for the Pelican Resort, as well as the Pelican Grill Restaurant. We had our Sunday Brunch here for a dearest friend's birthday. The staff was truly hospitable, and friendly. Honestly , the food was not memorable at... More

Or server, Jose, was exceptional and made sure we had everything we needed. W started with the caesar salad which was very good. One of the chef's specials was halibut, so three of us had... More

The restaurant has the two most obvious requirements for a great night out-outdoor dining with a view and fantastic, delicious food selections. The third requirement in our book, is great service. Pelican Grill has all. We had a great table under the stars, overlooking the Newport Coast. A blanket was provided when the night air cooled down. Our waiter (I... More

The food and service at this restaurant was outstanding and in line with what you come to expect at an exclusive resort. There is a wonderful view of the ocean. My wife and I wanted a special experience and we had one. Thank you.

Ate dinner and watched the NBA Finals. The food was amazing! I had the steak, with mashed potatoes and broccoli. The steak was spiced perfectly and seared crispy and medium rare on the inside. Amazing!! The burgers were outrageous--yummy fries. Salads were refreshing and made right. Can't go wrong here with anything -- the view overlooks the Coliseum pool with... More
