Nice view..polite wait staff. OK food, but needs updating...new carpets, paint etc. Would not return...it was empty except for 1 other person that came in as we were leaving.

Looking for lunch or dinner with a view? If you're not looking to splash out for something super spendy, and you're not looking for trendy, this is the spot for you! Food is fine, but nothing spectacular. Was surprised that the vegetable soup was homemade and actually vegetarian. Pasta was perfectly presentable. Mom had the mediterranean lamb burger and it...

I took my family here for a celebration because I remembered it fondly. I remembered what a great view it had and delicious food to boot...but how the great have fallen. The place needs a remodel badly. The decor is archaic and seems like a senior citizen dining hall. The food was very disappointing. Several of us ordered the filet... More

One of the most disappointing restaurants in Oakland. Great location overlooking the Bay just wasted by overpriced food and drink that is just average at best. Can't recommend.

Menu is good. Windows look onto the Estuary as boats pass. I return often. Groupon deals can be found also. I like the carbonara but most of choices do satisfy.

We had a wonderful experience at Pasta Pelican. We was greeted and sat as soon as we walked in with a view of the water. To be on the safe side, we made reservations. We ordered the Fettuccine Alfredo with chicken. You can add either chicken or shrimp for an additional cost. Also you can add a cup of soup... More

What a beautiful venue this was for lunch with friends on our visit to SFO. It sits right on the water with great views of yachts, etc. that I wished were mine. Wait staff was friendly. The food was very good, nicely prepared and presented. Prices were more than average, however; lunch was $82 for four and that was with... More

We had sailed past this place one afternoon while trying out a sailboat in Alameda. We had heard it was good, so decided to give it a try. It's right next to the Commodore Cruises & Events pier, so parking can be a challenge. It's a little bit hard to find, but don't give up, because the food is good,... More

Wanted to have seafood by the bay after spending time at the USS Hornet in Alameda. Used our GPS to ask for closest and best Italian restaurant and Pasta Pelican was the closest. We took a chance because we didn't know the area and was hungry. Got lucky and arrived as they just opened. Had the best Bloody Mary cocktail... More
