The ambiance was lovely. My husband and I disagreed on the food. He loved the duck, while I thought it was good, but not amazing. The poke was perfect.

We finally made it the Pelican Club for dinner Saturday night. We had passed by the restaurant numerous times and swore we'd eventually eat there. It was worth the wait like I figured it would be. Everything was delicious and the atmosphere was just as I was hoping. We will be back.

The one older gentleman was super rude about putting on the masks when walking around the restaurant. Other than that, great service and food overall.

The Pelican Club is CLASS all the way. Professionalism from the moment you are greeted at the door to the time you leave. The food is excellent as the lobster was cooked to perfection and the pork chop is one of the best you'll get in New Orleans. Our server, Denise, was THE BEST! Very knowledgeable and a fantastic sense of humor. Simply put, if you're in New Orleans you have to try The Pelican Club.

We dined at the Pelican Club on New Year's Eve. Yes, it was a "Pre Fixe" priced dinner at $125 a head, but each of the five courses had three to five choices, and each was prepared when ordered, and of the finest quality. Our server became a friend, and gladly boxed the entree portions we couldn't possibly finish. The Pelican Club is in a great location in the heart of the French Quarter, and is usually open on Sunday nights, when many others are "dark".

Had a wonderful time at the The Pelican club. It was our first time but won’t be our last! I got the filet which you could cut with a butter knife and the paneed fish was really good. Highly recommend.

We had a wonder anniversary dinner at the Pelican Club! Our server was incredible. The Pimm's Cup Martini and French 75 cocktails were delicious. We have the reveillon 4 course special with Turtle Soup, BBQ Shrimp app, Pork Loin and Grilled fish with crabmeat, and the white chocolate bread pudding. Everything was served hot and delicious!! We cant wait to go back.

We waited an hour for the first course. We think our waiter lost our order. His apology came with a free bread basket and bottle of sparkling water -- hardly an adequate effort at compensation.
