The risotto for two prepared at table side on a beautiful September evening with a great bottle of Italian wine with a view across a manicured golf course and the ocean...that's what we can an evening well-spent.

They have a special pasta vault where they keep the pasta temp controlled and fresh made daily. You can taste the difference

Andrea at Pelican Hill offers fantastic, freshly prepared dishes and equally fantastic atmosphere. Andrea is a great place for a romantic lunch or dinner with that special someone.

To be fair, we were there on a Saturday night when there were several private events - including ours - going on at once. However, it's the restaurant's responsibility to ensure there is enough staff available to serve its customers, and the events had to be planned well in advance, so they should have been prepared. We received our salads... More

It need some new dishes. The food portion are so small and very expensive. The interior need upgrade. It more than 10 years old. It has a nice view and the place is clean. Plenty of parking. At night ,it get very cold. Bring camera, a lot of pretty scene to take pictures. Dinner for 2 cost us 238.00

I love Andrea! I always make it a point to eat here, whether I am by myself on a business trip, with my wife for a romantic getaway or holding an event with 14 people in the private room in the back of the restaurant. The service and staff are always outstanding, and my goodness, the pastas are among the... More

Except for a somewhat limited lunch menu, there is nothing not to like about Andrea. Food, service, setting are wonderful. Worth every penny. Make that dollar.

I often find Orange County lacking in true high end restaurants. There are a lot that charge high prices and many with good food, but the service often is lacking - particularly when you compare to restaurants in New York. Andrea hit the mark on both food and service. There were five of us and we all agreed that our... More

What to say. yet another mediocre dining experience in which the prices do not reflect the value provided. Consistent with this hotel unfortunately.

The reason I say pretty good and not excellent is the value. The appetizers are great, the main courses good but not great. The dover sole (expensive) needed more lemon and was not worth $55. I also thought the Halibut was overpriced. The pasta was also good but not great. I would probably recommend going with the meat dishes. The... More

The unprecedented attention to detail in Andrea, to recreate storied culinary traditions and classic dishes bursting with the true flavors of Italy, has resulted in remarkable Northern Italian cuisine, with Tuscan influences in particular, that rivals the nation's top Italian restaurants.
