Well it was great until I found out that they never put my Lobster in my to go box. They keep it they only put the steak. Not cool when you payed $79.00 for the meal.
Drove to restaurant just fine option to self park was nice. Got seated in right away after checking in. Ambiance was pleasant. It was great to see the kitchen open to the restaurant. It was good. Had the corned beef since it was St Patrick’s Day. The meat was very tender and flavorful. Enjoyed the brussel sprouts.
What a beautiful restaurant! We were greeted by name at the table by our waiter. The table that had an amazing view of the Pacific Ocean. An amazing sunset was the back drop as we dined on a crabcake appetizer and glass of wine. Followed by an awesome dinner, I had the Chilean sea bass and my husband had the salmon. Both delicious ! Followed by a decadent lava cake and coffee with baileys! Yum
Worth the drive and the extra bucks for a romantic dinner with the hubs!
Waited more than 20 minutes for a table with a reservation. Food however, was outstanding. Waitstaff hustled, but bar service was slow.
My waiter was Excellent! The rolls are Amazing & Delicious!
It was very nice, food excellent, service great. The noise level was loud. We moved to The patio where it was much better but cool. We don’t feel comfortable in a loud place. Don’t know if we would return on a week end
Food was excellent.
Service was impeccable
Been there three / four times.
Looking forward to the next visit.
Great dinner, great location!!! Excellent ambiance out on the heated patio!
It was everything I could ever hope for in a restaurant
Very, very enjoyable on all counts. The food flavors were varied and delicious. Service was outstanding
Loved dining here! Excellent service. Anthony was wonderful and so gracious. The food was excellent. The view was a real plus! It was our first time dining there. We sat in the outdoor patio and it was divine.
All of the employees were very nice and very attentive!! Including the valet who welcomed us in an awesome way.
Thanks for making my birthday special!
Thanks again Meko Mcthomas
Service was great. Soup and salads were very good, bread was amazing, sides were very good. The steaks were so-so, a little on the dry side, not very flavorful.
It was great. The serve and food was all phenomenal 👌🏽 Not one bad experience. We were very satisfied with everything. Will definitely be going back
Amazing food and the service is as good as expected. Can't beat the view from Pelican. You won't go wrong with the Sea Bass or crab cakes.
We visited Pelican Grill for dinner on a Thursday to celebrate my Hubby’s Birthday. We made our reservation early at 530 and asked to sit on the patio so we could watch the sunset. The view was breathtaking, the service was impeccable & the food was delicious.
Ted was the best! Thank you for making our evening one to remember!
This restaurant is good for a lunch during day, so can enjoy the ocean view . what is great about this place is how exclusive it is, and quiet. I like that a lot.
The lunch menu is limited, but good. I would not say the food is OH MY GOODNESS, great, but its good. I got the chilean sea bass and it was really good. My dad got the salmon, and it was okay. not amazing.
Service is great, and they acknowledged my dad's bday a few times, so that was a very nice touch.
Beautiful restaurant and what a view from the patio. Food was great and reasonably priced. Not sure if they were short staffed, but service could have been better.
We dine here after shopping at Fashion Island...or we go to the Island hotel....both far better than any restaurants in the center itself...quiet, serene, good food, good service...for a Sunday afternoon. Only other temptation is Bandaras....but parking is a b___where Island and Pelican are complimentary and valet...love the service
Very positive dining experience. The view is spectacular and service is very attentive. The only suggestion would be to drop off the attitude of the hostess. We had reservations and arrived 15 minutes early and she thought we were asking for a key to heaven when we asked to be seated.
More than just a sports bar and restaurant. Very high end food and beverage offerings. Beautiful ambiance.
We had a beautiful birthday celebration at the Pelican Grill. Everything was delicious and David was a perfect server with great attention to every detail in a relaxed and friendly manner. The menu has a great variety of choices and the more refined dishes were excellent. The younger people in our group enjoyed the burger and pizza offerings as well. What was wonderful for us was that they reserved a quiet spot with a view for our party of 10. There was plenty of activity in the dining room and bar but we were able to have conversation along with our meal. I would recommend The Pelican Grill for a special occasion or just an opportunity to treat yourself!
I wish to Thank the hostess in particular for the absolutely stunning view table we received for our special anniversary dinner. We loved the view of the ocean and the dramatic sunset view. On top of that the dinner was spectacular and we were well served by our waiter. What a beautiful night.
Great evening at the Pelican Grill! We were there just befor sunset to see the sun drop behind Catalina Island. Our server was Jose, he made some excellent suggestions for dinner. We were not rushed yet we felt Jose was attentive when we wanted to order. My filet was perfect and my wife loved her ribeye. An excellent night, we will be back!
All was good except food wasn’t quite to the level expected to compete with it’s competition or price point. Great ambiance and service and food was good, but not great. Garlic mashed potatoes were served cold which didn’t help either but sure we will try again sometime.
Valentines Day dinner was a major disappointment. The food just wasn’t very good. Of course the environment was awesome, but the value proposition was poor.
Delicious food served hot and in a timely manner. Our server and hostess were very polite and incredibly professional. Love this place!
Excellent service! Thank you.
Anthony was such a pleasant and delightful person.
We were visiting as a reunion of old college friends and couldn't have been treated better. Our waiter (Kevin) was wonderful with a great sense of humor and the perfect combination of attentive while allowing us to have our privacy. I asked for a special table when making the reservation and we were given a "private" alcove/room. It was the perfect way to end our long weekend at Pelican Hill. THANK YOU for making it such a special night!
We had a very good experience. Service was exceptional and food was very good
I brought my co-worker here for the ambiance due to the oceanfront view. She truly enjoyed the Lobster Mac and cheese as I devoured the Cioppino. Great place to unwind after a long day at work.
This restaurant in beautiful Newport Beach has a patio view of the ocean. The tables are spaced nicely and the service is very classy. Everything was wonderful and the good was amazing.
Celebrating my Mom’s 85th Birthday and Dad going to Heaven.
Great food and service. Was my first time there and I highly recommended.
Truly enjoyed my experience here. Friendly staff and a breathtaking view. The food was delicious as well
Loved everything about this restaurant, from the time I stepped out of my car for valet, to leaving the restaurant. I always eat here with friends and family when they offer a deal. It is a gem to find at Pelican Hill.
Chose this for lunch with long time friends visiting from Northern California. Requested a patio table with a view. Food, view, service was superb. We will be back to enjoy it again! We had the butternut squash soup, arugla/beet salad, wedge salad, hamburger, fries, fish and fries, sorbet and gelato. It was all wonderful.., excellent presentation.
Love this place. The staff is very friendly and professional. You cant beat the ambiance and is a real traet at sunset. View is spectacular.
This place is absolutely beautiful. It would be what I would think Tuscany feels like or the French Riviera. The only complaint I have, and it's a small one, is the serving sizes of the appetizers. When a table of 6 orders 1 appetizer that must be known by the server to feed only 2 to 4 people, the server should definitely say something. But, of course, at the prices charged, there's absolutely no reason why 1 appetizer should only serve 2-4 people.
