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

Great breakfast venue with great views. Buffet is great but a bit pricey at $35.00. Wait staff a bit slow, but seemed to be the norm at all the restaurants at Pelican Hill

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).

This was the best restaurant by far at Pelican Hill. The food was delicious. I am still upset they cleared my last bite of risotto before I was actually finished because I was talking- my bad not theirs but it was sooo good. Atmosphere is elegant although indoors, outdoors would have been a nice choice. Service was excellent too. Not... More

We had stayed at Pelican Hill once before our visit on 23 July 2014. It was a delightful experience. I decided to take my wife there for her birthday, and elected to have her birthday meal at Andrea since it was highly rated. The restaurant is located in a very romantic setting, and it is well appointed. Our table located... More

Loved the view, ambience, and wonderful wait staff (Melissa) who accommodated us with enthusiasm. The risotto experience was worth the visit. Not much to dislike. Food was incredible. It's what i would expect for the high end pricing.

We were very disappointed at the service we experienced here. When you pay $300 for a lunch (without wine), you expect the food and service to be more than mediocre. I'm not talking about the complete desire to accommodate customers, I'm talking about straight forward rude attitude. I think they really don't care about how they treat their customers since...
