I like long dinners because it gives you an opportunity to talk with every one but this night was a little long. Of course they had a full house & we had a large table so a pass is in order. We did the 4 course menu which allowed everyone to try everything.

We love this place and I have written reviews before. It is always on our list when we go to New Orleans. We had a group of six for dinner on a Saturday night and the only negatives were the noise level and the fact that there were people dining in the main dining room still in their red dresses... More

Came for dinner on a Monday night, not crowded at all. Service was fast and attentive. Wedge salad was excellent. The rest of the food was just OK...nothing spectacular. Filet was cooked to order and very tender, but not quite as tasty as I hoped. Bread pudding was mediocre at best. Probably won't be back.

Enjoyed another great meal at The Pelican Club. The food was delicious and our waiter, Marcus, was attentive and personable. During the month of August, this restaruants participates in The Coolinary Menu with many other restaurants in New Orleans. For $35 they offer a terrific 3 course menu with many choices. I enjoyed a calamari appetizer, a beef filet (cooked... More

the food was great, delicious! also the restaurant is beautiful and well located right on the heart of the french quarter. my only issue would be the service, the waiter was slow and barely checked on us, also she didn't explain the menu or asked us questions. but other than that great place!

This rates at the top of our local food critics list and mine as well. It is where I go for an extra special dinner. The fried flounder is amazing. They do a Price Fix menu that is a great deal and has many choices, including desert - get the bread pudding! If you want a quieter experience, you might... More

So if you are into Oysters, this is where you have to be. Or move in pretty much. At least during the happy hour. 25c an Oyster! Yes, you heard right. Just order any drink with it and you pay 25c for a huge Oyster. The also have great Crawfish if you cannot eat Oysters for a week straight. And... More

Hands down The Pelican Club is in the top 5 restaurants in the city. Varied menu with fresh ingredients tucked into a cool alley. Service is always excellent. The seafood martini is my wife's favorite and one not to miss. In the summer months they usually have a 3 course "coolinary" special which is always an excellent value. If you... More

I had eaten here once before back before Katrina and remembered it as being very good. It was excellent again! Food was wonderfully prepared and delicious and the service was excellent. Great wine list, too. Would definitely recommend!
