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

We stopped in for heavy appetizers and drinks in the bar before an evening ghost tour. The food was incredible and I wish we had time to go back for a full sit down meal. We had the corn and crab bisque and the blue crab and ravioli with mushrooms. I was dying for more. Everyone said the same thing... More

We were visiting from Los Angeles and I took my wife here for her birthday. The waitress was awful. She poured water in a glass of our very expensive Chardonnay and simply took it away, brought over another glass and poured a new glass from the same bottle. No apology. No offer to make up for the lost wine. Stay... More

In August this restaurant participates in Coolinary which is a special menu (choice of appetizer, main and dessert for $35) which is an outstanding value. As I was ordering I looked at the regular prices for the menu items and the price was at least double what we paid! That being said the food was excellent but if I paid... More

Dinner here was wonderful! Crab cakes, lobster, very generous portions. We were here during Coolinary and this made a pricey restaurant doable. The crazies weren't here, mature clientele who probably were not first time visitors. We will be back!

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
