Very High Quality - Superior Setting - Excellent Food

If you have the inclination to treat yourself to a fantastic setting atop Pelican Hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the Pelican Hill Resort is the place to go. If you cannot spring for the very pricey rooms/villas, at least treat yourself to the restaurant for lunch or dinner (which is more... read more

The quality of the food was superb however my wife and I shared a scallop appetizer before our main course and it only provided one scallop each. Given the price this was very disappointing.

Typical upscale, quiet, golf-resort ambience. Food is delicious and wait staff is professional. Great views from the bar and patio. If you're looking for a quiet, romantic place to watch the sunset I can't imagine there is anything better. I had reserved a patio table and they would not seat us until our whole party was present. The others were... More

Recently dined at Andrea while on 31st anniversary trip. Server,Jeremy, was outstanding. This gentleman should give training lessons to other servers. He made us feel welcome in such a kind and professional delivery as performing the server role and interaction with dining patrons. The food was outstanding. Order the risotto! Thank you Jeremy, Thank you Andrea for a wonderful evening... More

We get here a couple times a year and always leave feeling like we've experienced something special. The dining room is beautiful, and if you're able to get a seat on the patio the view is spectacular! The service is top notch and the food beautifully presented, with creative twists on standard Italian dishes - simply delicious!

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

While staying at The Resort at Pelican Hill, we ate at Andrea for our anniversary dinner. When the waiter discovered our special day, the chef came out to chat with us. He returned later with a custom made after dinner treat - it was personalized with our names and "Happy Anniversary." Wow! Oh, by the way, the meal was amazing... More

Six of us dined at a corner round table on the covered patio. Melissa, clearly a superior server, did her very best, composed, knowledgeable about the menu and kept us aprised when there was a glitch in the new computer system. We appreciated being kept in the loop. Her assistant was a california casual meets english butler, composed, patient not... More
