Coliseum is the rare choice that is perfect for a date or the family. Amazing views....professional staff and excellent food. The menu options could be better so it is advised to review the menu online prior to dining. Prices were reasonable. I agree that this is a top choice in OC...

We had lunch with friends by the pool. Very casual and relaxed, with the usual light lunch options. Setting and views were lovely, it is a great place for breakfast and brunch!

Their food is well above average in preparation and presentation, even if the portions are generally too large. So, order appropriately.

Beauty unparalleled. Great service. Excellent food. If you are a French fries fan...cannot find better than these! Water was heaven and the beer was cold. What more could one ask for?

We have always enjoyed the view but the service is usually under-par and the choice of food items limited. I can't imagine having to beg for coffee refills at a place like this. The brunch offering is not as expected. This place seems to have trouble keeping its staff and because of the inconsistency of the service, we usually try... More

A wonderful breakfast buffet while overlooking the infinity pool and the Ocean off at a distance. A bit pricey though. The buffet was $40.00

The brunch had items like omelets, bacon, sausages and smoked salmon. The service was quick and our waitress was very courteous and gracious. The setting was SPETACULAR, with views of the resort and the beautiful pool and the ocean in the background. The price is somewhat high for the items on the menu but the resort setting made up for...

The Pelican Coliseum Pool & Grill was a fabulous early dinner looking over the pool. It was raining ( I am sure much appreciated by locals). We where still able to eat outside on the terrace. Heated ceilings and floor. Had a great dinner from the brick oven needed comfort food on the chilly night. Great lasagna for me and... More
