We were running late on our reservation because of the street car. I was able to call the restaurant and they pushed our reservation back by 15 minutes. That was perfect for us to arrive on time. We were welcomed very graciously when we entered and by the waitstaff. The service was excellent! Our waiter was funny and laid back. The 4-course for $49 option was perfect for my husband’s birthday dinner!

Wonderful experience. Great food & awesome service in a comfortable, quiet atmosphere. We had the Mardi Gras menu which includes four courses. The gumbo was delicious and I highly recommend the pork chop. The cocktails and desserts were very tasty as well. Great place for a small business dinner or a date night.

Everything was awesome!! The food was really special. I had the shrimp bisque, crab and shrimp ravigote, and the whole flounder, then white chocolate bread pudding. The bisque was light and delicious. The ravigote was packed with lump crabmeat and shrimp. The dressing was good, but there was a lot. Next time I'll get it on the side. The flounder was light and flaky. Really it could be split between 2 people. I'm a bread pudding lover and this one didn't disappoint! The white chocolate sauce was lovely over the flavorful bread pudding. Our server Denise was great. Very personable!

Went back to one of our favorite restaurants, The Pelican Club, this past Saturday evening and had another fantastic meal with our friends. We’ve never, ever had a bad meal here. They always knock it out of the park from the appetizers, the entree’s through dessert. Cocktails are large, cold and tasty. I was surprised at how many people were in the quarter. Guess the Mayor is flapping her gums for nothing. Can’t blame them though because she tends to talk out of both sides of her mouth at the same time. Enough on her. Our visit to the Pelican Club this time was for a Mardi Gras special, three courses for $49 bucks, and the staff all had their MG costumes on to match the restaurant decorations. Very nice and so NOLA.
