Description: An incomparably fun and intriguing place to dine, the Coliseum Pool & Grill overlooks the "scene" at the strikingly iconic Coliseum Pool, back-dropped by the Pacific Ocean.

The Coliseum Pool & Grill not only has a beautiful setting (especially for dining outside), the service was excellent (our server was Patricia), the food was exceptional and when was the last time you were asked by a manager if everything was perfect??? It really was. Perfect Day...Perfect Food .... And Perfect Service. Put this all into a Perfect Setting and and there you have it. Beautiful place to walk around..........

Sit outside and enjoy an amazing view of the sunset over the Pacific with the golf course in the foreground and the perfectly round pool at your feet. Pelican Hill Resort is spectacular and expensive. The Coliseum gives you a taste (literally) of the rest of the resort. You can wear your shorts and T-shirts. Cocktails are expensive but very good. The food however was reasonably priced with a medley of Mediterranean appetizers 4 for 20. We came back a second night and the seafood was especially good. The servers were very friendly and attentive but not intrusive. Everyone was pleasant and another diner actually gave me a flower. Extra perk? Free Valet Parking! Warning-If you are using the new Iphone navigation with Siri it will take you to the wrong location. Once you enter Pelican Hill Resort just follow the signs to the Coliseum Pool and Grill. Don't forget your camera!

With the most gorgeous setting, attentive service, menu with a variety of "healthy" options - this is the ideal location for a long lazy indulgent lunch.. The epitome of OC Ladies Who Lunch. A new reality show?

We were staying at the resort so had lunch here. The view is great (right over the pool and a view of the golf course). The food was decent to good but not great. My reuben arrived w/o sauerkraut and without 1000 Island. Once I realized it was missing, they fixed it and did give us a free desert plate which was the highlight of the lunch -HIGHLY recommend desert and appreciate the restaurant taking care of the problem. Service was very very slow - the lunch was over 2 hours long.

The four of us ate at lunch; the cobb salad and the reuben sandwich are delicious. Complementary valet, and a beautiful view across the pool to the golf course. Service was prompt and efficient. We had a delightful time.
