Slow service

Great good, and great for a social lunch, but not for a business lunch meeting if you expect to be in and out within 90 minutes.

Nice setting...So so food..Soup was good buy barely painted the dish it was served on....Ambiance reasonable.....Very pushy waitress all dinner long but the worst was when the waiters started clearing the table. This process was painful to watch as the waiters insisted on proving their worth as circus clowns balancing the every increasing plate stack on one hand while using... More

My daughter and I went to eat here after our spa service. Pelican is very nice with beautiful views of the golf course and the ocean. Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed with the service. We did not have reservations, but once we were seated we waited what seemed to be a VERY LONG TIME until our drinks orders were... More

The food and service was excellent. Maybe just a little over priced for the amount but you are at Pelican Hill so you probably aren't pinching pennies.

Andrea was a fantastic treat. Though the interior dining room is lovely, we sat on the (heated) terrace, a little less formal but absolutely lovely. The service was spot-on, enthusiastic and informative but not intrusive. The food was simply spectacular. The wild mushroom risotto prepared tableside for two in a parmigiano reggiano wheel, topped with shaved winter truffles - a... More

We took a friend for his 76th birthday. It was a very pleasant luncheon. It is well worth a visit. A bit pricey - but worth it. The views are spectacular.

Was staying at the resort and enjoyed a great dinner. Was a great way to kick off our week at Pelican Hill. We had a couples dinner at the Andrea. The restaurant is a very elegant Italian restaurant. The resort was pretty crowded with an Italian festival – but the service did not suffer. We had a great server. I... More
