I will not go back. The gumbo was weak for a NOLA restaurant. It was smothering HOT in the restaurant. The tables rocked, the service lacked throughout the entire meal. The coffee was burnt. No Thanks!
Food was very good, but as we finished our dinner my wife saw a live bug in her wine glass swimming around. We showed our waitress who then just brought us our check. Beware of bugs in the main dining area.
Our second visit; specifically planned the visit into our cross country road trip! Love the cioppino!
This was a random pick, but turned out to be one of the best meals we had in New Orleans. Will definitely return.
Beautiful restaurant with great service and delicious food.
The service or undeniably the best ever, and the selection, quantity and quality of food is remarkably outstanding!!!!! This is a wonderful establishment that I will continue to support and share with family and friends.
Delicious dishes. All were enjoyable, especially the crispy flounder, stuffed lobster, baked oysters, and tuna poky. The shrimp salad and orange cheesecake were also very good. With no drinks, lunch came out to be about $75pp, tips and tax included. It was worth it!!
As with most restaurants on Mother's Day, the wait staff was a little distracted and forgetful
Food temperature wasn’t exactly right. Had to send a filet back. Service was good. Ambiance is nice. Definitely worth a visit.
Wonderful food and fantastic service.
Seafood martini is absolutely incredible it is probably the best app anywhere!
Our second visit was as good as the first. Pouring rain so it was a bit less busy than it could have been. But, that helped make the service excellent. The waiter recommended the best fish and the appropriate wine to go with it. Great atmosphere. We'll go there every time we're in New Orleans.
When I come to New Orleans it’s the first restaurant I go to.
Visited for my bday. The host was very warm and greeted me with many happy birthdays. Loved the food!
We had the four course meal which was delicious and fulfilling!
Food, service and ambiance were very good!
Great food. Server was good but confused occasionally. Still a fun evening out.
My fish was tasteless, wife’s lamb was tough and replacement filet was mediocre. Definitely not a place I would return to.
If I could give it six stars I would! The only negative was the soft bench seating along the wall. You kind of sink in and feel like a small child sitting at the table. Everything was fantastic and this was my favorite restaurant.
Pelican Club is always reliable for great food and service. I wasn’t disappointed this time either.
This was our favorite restaurant we are at while in New Orleans, wish it wasn't so noisy
Great service, and food was delicious...would return on our next trip to New Orleans
The Pelican was all class. A NO “must do”. It’s not cheap but that was never to goal.
The food was amazing and the service impeccable. I wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant for anyone visiting New Orleans. Once there, say hello to Richard and tell him I said hello!
Third visit, 1st two were great. This time abysmal.
Front desk staring at computer screen takes two minutes
Then greeted warmly with —- “name ?”
Seated — no service for 10 minutes
One in our party had to get up to ask for a glass of water
Waiter- hope he was wasted because that’s what it felt like
Was totally overwhelmed- leaves us mid sentence several times - to do other things
Orders wrong entree for one of us
Some food oversalted.
The bouillabaisse has two components- 1st plate came
then a wait for the second bowl filled with seafood and sauce
Friends giving me the hairy eyeball
Oh - what have you done to us !
Really sucky experience
Was completely embarrassed I picked the restaurant
No apologies for any of the many shortcomings, this particular waiter who I won’t call out by name couldn’t have cared less
Truly horrible experience in a town where you expect great things
What a let down.
Previous night at Paladar 511 was spectacular. Willa Jeans for breakfast fantastic experience
Pelican Club you are dead to me ... but you don’t really care now do you ?
Just average will return
We are repeat customers at the Pelican club. Food and service are great. It is an authentic upscale creole/cajun menu with a wonderful atmosphere and great art on the walls.
We were looking forward to this meal but were sorely disappointed. I ordered a couple of appetizers for my main meal, and we ordered soup and salad as first course. Soup and salad came, and the Gumbo was delicious. Then it went downhill. My calamari and artichokes came out next, but my husbands entree came 10 minutes later. When I complained to the waitress, that I had to eat cold food because I awaited for my husbands food so we could eat together, she told me, oh yeah, there was a mix up in the kitchen and walked away. No I’m sorry. No would you like a new dish since you didn’t touch it and it is obviously now cold. The food was fair, the service mediocre to poor, and the bill way too pricey for the quality of the food and experience (except the Gunbo). There are many other better restaurants in NOLA for food and service.
Really poor experience. This is a French Quarter tourist trap. Food was mediocre at best. Service was more like a diner, unprofessional, random, and inattentive. The place was NOT packed so no excuse. Manager comp’d some desserts because food was so slow coming out but I didn’t really want dessert. I wanted to pay and leave. Then I got the bill, a mandated and included 20% tip for a party of 6. Really? Heck, they made me give a credit card for the reservation (I never do this but tI did this time - my bad). How do they justify that? I will NEVER step foot near this place again. I will also warn everyone away. Waste of an Easter get together.
Easter brunch was fabulous!
Easter Sunday lunch.
We really enjoyed our dining experience at Pelican Club.
Excellent!!!! New favorite restaurant. Chef is outstanding!!!
Perfect table by the window for our party of 6. Cioppino was outstanding. All entrees were enjoyed.
JASON was a horrible, spiteful waiter. Very obviously, purposely didn’t put an entree in - and didn’t offer anything in apology.
Delicious, great service.
The Pelican Club was an amazing dining experience. The staff were very friendly and the food was incredible. My husband and I ate here for our 25th anniversary and were very pleased with the whole experience. I would highly recommend The Pelican Club to anyone looking for a quiet romantic dining experience.
It's honestly my favorite restaurant in the quarter. We go back every year for our anniversary.
Was very disappointed in the food and service was poor. For their prices expected much better.
There was nothing about my experience that would bring me back. When the reservation was made we let them know it was for a special occasion but nothing was even mentioned upon arrival.
We had one vegatarian with us and they were not flexible with dishes. There was one vegartaian fish, which was the beat dish we had overall. We asked if the chef could subsidize an ingredient on one dish and were told they could not.
We ordered soups, salad and appetizers as our meals (party of 8). One salad was completely forgotten and the other 7 were done with their first round of dishes by the time the salad arrived.
The second round was the opposite. One appetizer came out about 25 minutes before the rest of our remaining dishes arrived.
Our server was sweet but not attentive.
Overall, we were disappointed in ourr experience here.
