This restaurant is opposite Jack London square where there are several restaurants with a view of the estuary. Most of them , if not all, are more expensive than Pasta Pelican.The food and service are about the same. The view makes the difference.

Pasta Pelican came in at very short notice to host my cousin's wedding reception when the original booking bailed. A great location on the water, spacious with full bar and good food. Would recommend highly if you're looking for a quirky event venue.
