The Pelican Club is incredible. Took my girlfriend and her brother to dinner for her birthday and everyone was in love with their meals. Coolinary menu provides a great mix of dishes so everyone can eat according to dietary needs and their personal tastes.

The waitress was very helpful by providing honest recommendations. Festive energy in the place! I’ve been disappointed eating out at other places lately, but every dish here from the gumbo to the baked oysters to the lamb to the dessert was delicious!! So glad I came!!

The food was excellent. The staff were attentive. I didn't care for the Sangria I ordered but didn't return it. The seat I sat in sagged a lot so it hurt my back & there was a small tear in it. I liked that the place paid for parking partially.

The Pelican Club consistently is the best restaurant in New Orleans. It is the best restaurant in the city I think. The whole fish is amazing, the BBQ shrimp were perfect, as was my wife's escargot.

Too many restaurants have not come back after the lock downs from Covid, but Pelican is fully back and a very enjoyable evening.

The Pelican Club was just delicious. My only criticisms were the waiter seemed a little frustrated when we tried to pay our bill with cash and credit cards. We worked it out but he was a bit snippy about it! The second criticism is the lighting was a bit bright for an 8:15 pm dinner reservation. The food was outstanding!

Don't get one of the tables outside. We were put at a table with no umbrella that had water on it from the rain. The nice hostess wiped it down with a napkin. We had to get our own setups from the host stand. Our waiter served everyone on the patio but us. After about fifteen minutes we asked to be moved to a table with an umbrella however they immediately sat someone else there. After thirty minutes, we still didn't have our drinks so we left. In fairness, we have heard good things about The Pelican Club. I think they had overbooked their space and were trying to add tables outside to accommodate. Not sure if we would try it again but the lobster sure sounded good!

Nice location, large open rooms. Seated promptly and served fairly quickly. Main room is large and one loud group can really take over, however that may be expected (although we were there before 6 pm). Prices are on the high end and food is good but not great. Our lamb was noticeably undercooked. Paneed fish was tasty. In my opinion, there is better food at these prices in NO.

I hate leaving reviews, but I have to leave one about this establishment. Up front, just don’t come here because the service is awful. The food was mediocre at most. The restaurant looked great and the atmosphere was perfect, but the server was horrible. He brought us our initial drink order of wine, but after that we only saw him once. He didn’t ask if we needed another glass of wine or if the food was good, I know that’s not needed but it’s comforting to know your server actually cares about what he does and his customers. Any job one works they should have pride in what they do. He clearly doesn’t care. We had to ask another server for “to go boxes” and our bill. As a regular to the city of New Orleans, this is a place we will not return to or recommend to anyone asking for a good place to eat.

The server is Wade..avoid this server at all cost. If he is your server just save yourself the problems and just leave or request a different, stronger, caring server.

We had a nice time, but the restaurant was very loud and hot, at only half full. Our waiter was terrific. Honestly though, the food this time was only so so. We’ve eaten at the Pelican Club many times and had really good food…. Maybe a new chef? Anyway, we’ll probably not go back for a while.

Had the lamb chops and sheepshead filet, was perfectly good and made for a nice meal. Coconut cream pie was the best part of the meal.. Excellent greeting at the host stand and attentive service the whole night, almost too attentive as it felt like we were a bit rushed at certain intervals.
