Even if you are not staying in the French Quarter, a trip to the Pelican Club is worth while Their crab cakes with pineapple-jalapeno chutney, and remoulade sauce are the best I've ever tasted. The gulf fish, as well as the seared sashimi tuna chinois salad was suberb. The service could not have been any better.

Bourbon Street prices for ok food., but we gave it 5 stars for atmosphere. The wine list is extensive and expensive. Personally, I'd rather be served better food in a less upscale restaurant.

Glad we had packed long trousers so we felt properly dressed for this super restaurant. Excellent meal, very well presented in a slightly more formal way than the rest of NO. Really happy with the experience, it seemed to be where the locals go, and that can't be a bad indicator.

Long time friends and life long NOLA residents took us to dinner here. The place is very comfortable with several dining areas that are not seen when you look in from the street. The menu was nicely varied with several choices I found intriguing. When our meals arrived it was easy to tell that they use all fresh ingredients that... More

We saw the coolinary with the menus online and thought this was a great opportunity to visit an upscale restaurant in New Orleans. We had a wonderful dinner paired with excellent wines. The red wine was a little warm to get out all the flavours. Other then that; great food and a wonderful experience!

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!
