What a delight this restaurant was. How do you not eat at a place that has its own pasta making room, specifically constructed for that purpose. The main dishes aren't big so I'd recommend an appetizer if you are hungry. I had the octopus. It was divine. In most places you get some chewy deep fried thing with tomato sauce.... More

Main course salad was good , followed by a cheese tortolliini that was good. The problem was the main course was dried out chicken and salmon . i might as... More

We are hear on our first night at Pelican Hill and it matched everything we'd come to expect of the place in such a short space of time. The handmade pasta was unbelievable and the service we received was better than I've ever experienced! We will definitely be going back on out last night!

This is a seriously top end restaurant located in an equally impressive setting/resort. I haven't stayed here, or played their courses, (though I would love to if anyone wants to treat!). Andrea has the atmosphere of an old-school, great restaurant, but is newer in style, and lighter in atmosphere due to high ceilings, large windows, and light, though not bright... More

Wait staff extremely attentive. We were four people ordering fish as Well as beef. Food excellent in a romantic atmosphere. Strangely the chef came out to give us his business card.

There were multiple courses that each were so well thought out, unique and flavorful. The wine that was suggested was perfect and the result of our feedback to them. Each bite I took was a treat. There is nothing mediocre on the menu.

We pulled into the parking lot and saw three Bentleys. All I could think was... glad I am not paying tonight. The building and view are out of this world. When I go back, I have to play the golf course... looks gorgeous. We had a few drinks on the outdoor patio. Stiff cocktails were excellent and service outside was... More

Food, service, location - always on top. No wonder it is always a top rated restaurant in Orange County. My wife (a vegetarian) and I go regularly and never grow tired of it. Never run out of choices.

…now they need to bring the rest of the resort upto the same, consistent standard. We had the Wagyu Chateaubriand and it was prepared exactly as we desired. Jeremy was extremely attentive, knowledgeable and had, in a professional way, a sense of humour (didn't take himself too seriously how some do in these top restaurants).
