The service was nice (we had a large group and they were very patient) and the setting is quite handsome. The food at times was just average, at others quite inspired. Escargot with mini puff pastries was great. The filet with Bearnaise looked to be the pick of the litter as far as entrees. Although the duck three ways was... More

It is difficult to name "the best" New Orleans restaurant, because there are a number of excellent choices. The Pelican Club was recommended by friends, and it did not disappoint - but I am not sure it will make my "top 10" of NO's best. The restaurant seats quite a few customers, in a couple of large rooms. The tables... More

While our first experience was less than desirable I commend the management team at The Pelican Club for reviewing our feedback and taking corrective actions with their staff. That was my primary objective in writing the original review. Often times customers just go away mad and you never see them again. If they don't share their perception how can the... More

This restaurant came highly recommended, we were not disappointed. The restaurant was quiet and service attentive. The presentation was beautiful. My party had the crab/shrimp cakes. They were outstanding. I had the filet. It was cooked to my specifications and was tender. The mushroom sauce was not as flavorful as I would have liked. I finished with the pecan pie... More

This is a beautiful restaurant with wonderful food. We had half expected to find small portions, but we experienced just the opposite! I had a fish special and my husband had the rack of lamb and we raved about it. Both dishes were cooked to perfection and I for one, couldn't even finish my food! Server was very nice. We... More

We held our son's wedding rehearsal dinner and after-dinner reception here, knowing that it's a great restaurant, lively crowd, upscale menu. The Pelican Club did NOT disappoint. They accommodated our group, great servers, delicious food, excellent top-shelf liquor, and comfortable ambiance. Thanks to LInda for her help in setting our wedding parties up.

One of the best dining experiences I've had in a long time. The restaurant is beautiful and off the main tourist streets. The food was great, particularly the baked oysters and the duck entree. The cocktails and wine selection were also top notch. We had a very attentive waiter. The service lagged a couple of times, I suspect because of... More

Started out with drinks at the bar, which were great. The atmosphere is very classy but welcoming. The food was amazing, definitely will go back again to try their other offerings!!

We really enjoyed the Pelican Club. We made reservations, they seated us immediately upon arriving. The menu had many wonderful choices -- my husband and I both had an appetizer, entrée and dessert and we were very happy with everything. The atmosphere is lovely. Service was very good. Would highly recommend.

We found this place while walking around the French Quarter. We went on a city tour earlier & our guide recommended that we attend a higher end restaurant before leaving. We tried 3-4 others that he suggested and couldn't get in so we walked around the French Quarter and came across this restaurant. It was during Restaurant Week and got... More
