Everything was delicious. Our party of 4 enjoyed most dishes. The flounder and lobster were the best main dishes. The baked oysters, seafood ravigot, and tuna poke were yummy starters. Bread pudding was the best finale! Our waiter was also very nice. Overall great dining experience.

Outdoor dining on a beautiful clear night was perfect. Staff outstanding!
Food was good except I found the paneed fish mushy and a bit tasteless. The crispy garlic potatoes were on point. They help flavor the fish when eaten together along with the green beans with slivered onions.
Appetizer and dessert was creative and delicious! I would go back and try something new.

The Pelican Club is certainly one of the best little places in the French Quarter for dinner. Excellent food and very well trained wait staff. Only 2 blocks off Bourbon Street so very convenient but in fact could be on a different planet considering is such an material escape from Bourbon Street mayhem. A broad menu from cocktails to dessert. Especially recommend for appetizer - the baked oysters or the BBQ shrimp, for entre the paneed fish with crabmeat or the veal oscar, and for dessert the creme brulee.

It was my godmother’s last day in New Orleans before returning to Texas, I wanted to treat her to a nice dinner. I had read and heard the coolinary at Pelican Club was a good deal and a good experience. We had reservations for 8pm, arrived promptly and we were seated next to the door in the bar area. Not an ideal seat but fine, after being seated for 15 minutes we had still yet to be greeted by a waiter we asked the young man that served us water if we could put an order for drinks in, he informed us that he would grab our waiter, a waiter never arrived. The young man who was getting waters for tables eventually took our drink order. A minute later a waiter showed up and asked to take our drink order we informed him that our order was already taken. Another 10 minutes later another waiter arrived and asked if we had time to review the menu, I informed we had several, he did not introduce himself at all or ask if we had questions. I asked him if he was our waiter, he replied, “I am now”. I thought that was a little rude. He began taking our order. I gave him our order while I was giving my order, I asked if he heard the temperature of my steak and he motioned me to proceed or hurry up. The food was subpar, and I wouldn’t recommend to anyone... I was highly disappointed that I took anyone to this restaurant and embarrassed that I described this establishment as a nice restaurant. Signed A sincerely disappointed local ☹️. There are a lot of things I can forgive during COVID but our waiter sincerely seemed like he hated his job and didn’t want to be there. He made it clear we were an inconvenience to him. We still left him a $45 tip despite him not doing a thing to make our experience enjoyable. Stay away go to palace cafe, peche, commanders or anywhere but here.

Such an amazing restaurant! The food was delicious, the portions were large, and it was very reasonably priced. There were so many things to choose from and everything sounded delicious. Our server, Pony, was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and just a genuinely nice person as well. The ambiance inside was very nice, but the outdoor patio looked beautiful as well. If we’re ever back in town, we’ll definitely be going back.

The food was not as good as I was expecting. Oysters were over cooked with way too much on it. I couldn’t really taste and enjoy the oyster. The poke martini was good. Lobsters was cooked perfectly with a creamy butter sauce. The sides I could have done without. The steak was seasoned and cooked well. My first martini was perfect second one tasted like just vodka. A little inconsistent. I would for sure try it again one day.

We had the last reservation so understandably we felt slightly rushed. Otherwise staff was great. They had a Coolidge menu which was three courses for $39. I thought small portions but everything was satisfying and the food was phenomenal. We both had different appetizers; the Korean shrimp (which is a soup) and jambalaya. Both very good. We both had the surf and turf. The crabcakes hands down best I had in New Orleans. And dessert pecan pie and coconut cream pie. Amazing!

The food and service were wonderful. We were here while they had their “Restaurant Week” menu up, which was perfectly fine by us, it was a one price 3 course meal. The selections were varied and all looked good.

Only recommendation I would make, is if you don’t see a favorable reservation time on Open Table, call the restaurant directly. I was looking for 7:30 and took an earlier 6:30 reservation as nothing showed closer. They were not very busy at all as it was during the week and COVID 💁🏻‍♂️. That was my mistake should have called direct and am sure they could have accommodated us at 7:30.
