We came here with the full intention to sit down for a lovely meal. We came dressed up, ready to splurge, and left after sitting down. The wait staff was incredibly rude, and acted as though we didn't belong. Again, we were dressed up, knowing that the place was supposed to be lovely. The staff was dismissive and made us... More

We appreciated being kept in the loop. Her assistant was a california casual meets english butler, composed, patient not... More

Andrea at the Resort at Pelican Hill is the best restaurant in Newport Beach. Terrific high end Northern Italian cuisine with very good service. My wife and I and another couple recently dined here and we all had a fabulous meal. Three of us had a pasta special that was absolutely sublime. One of the people having the special pronounced...

The restaurant is very elegant. It offers an intimate dining experience with gorgeous views of the ocean and hotel grounds. The best time for a romantic dining experience would be during sunset. The food was extremely good and well-prepared. My favorite was the unforgettable, delicious dessert with a pretty flower added to its presentation. In final, the dining experience was... More

Explore the multi-course menu, and enjoy the grilled octopus and crudo before moving to the best pasta you'll ever try. The wine menu is very nice, and offers great pairings with the food options.

Fine dining at it best. Staff so nice and help made our anniversary very special. The chief made a special dinner even more special. The food needs to be tried to understand.
