Meal of a Lifetime

If you can afford it, you must go. If you can't... start saving up so you can enjoy the deliciousness. My family and boyfriend got there at 6PM so we could sit on the terrace and enjoy the view. Terrace seating is first come, first serve - worth arriving early! We had Melissa as our server, and she... read more

Excellent food. We had the sample menu. A smaller portion of many dishes. Problem was my wife is a vegetarian. Our amazing server was Malissa. She knows the menu to perfection. problem solved. We asked Malissa to choose the dishes for each course for both of us (sort of like a chefs menu) only it is now Malissas menu. She... More

Beautiful view, good food and service. The dining room is somewhat sparse, the ceilings are very high and it almost feels like a large banquet hall. My favorite restaurant at this property is the Coliseum.

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
