Great food and drinks

Looking for a restaurant to be with my friends on a thursday nite and found the Pelican Cafe in Ocean Drive. The hostess was very professional and sit us in the terrace were the ambience was perfect to be with friends and gaze at the people walking down the sidewalk. Our waiter an italian native was excellent in recomending from the menu including the fabulous drinks we had. The manager was very courteous and came to... view more

Worst Eating Experience Ever!

This is the most over-priced, poor quality food and drink establishment that I have ever been too. I ordered a ""surf and turf"" that was just plain BAD! The lobster tasted fishy, as though it had just been thawed and it was the smallest thing I have ever seen for the money. The steak was at best average for the price. The drinks were watered down and very expensive. The wait service was below average and not ve... view more

Waiter sort of rude ""what do you want attitude"". start with 4 pieces of bland bread in a paper bag - asked for butter and olive oil; got a huh!? in response; did get the butter but no olive oil (they thought we were being too cheeky asking for both); then the meal - crab cake appetizer (a single solitary small crab cake); very meagre serving of pasta with clams (pasta was solid and quite hard); a couple of lime dr... view more

good food, but bad manager!

The hostess asked us to join them! So we decided to give a chance.. We wanted a table inside, but the manager said no because all the tables were reserved. So we seated at the terrace.. When I went to the restroom (witch is inside) I saw the almost 20 tables empty!! So I call him and ask again if we could seat inside, because my daughter was cold and he told us the same thing.. Almost one hour after that we finished... view more

ridiculous management

we were enjoying our weekend, walking on ocean drive 3 or 4 month ago and suddenly decided to get a drink and feel like a tourists, sit down on ocean drive and relax. so we stopped by this place and asked the hostess if we could get a drink on the terrace and maybe get an apps or something.. so manager came up to us and told us that we have to decide now if we gonna eat or not, cause if we don't he cant sit us on abs... view more

HORRENDOUS treatment of workers!

Pelican's restaurant charges a more than 30% tip on the bill! The menu says very clearly at the bottom that you can choose to tip less if you would like. What it does not say is that when you choose to tip less they take the difference out of their workers paychecks! I was horrified by the things that the manager said to me. When I confronted them on this they explained that the workers lived in shacks and accuse... view more

Nice location, terrible food

Had a set menu dinner, and was quite shocked at the food quality. The black linguini seafood pasta had the worst quality of seafood. The fish was very dry, and it was quite obvious that the calamari was not fresh. Key lime pie was average, but the tuna carpaccio was also not exciting. Average time to serve each course was 30 mins.

Relaxed and cool

Was visiting Miami over Easter and had seen this place online, wanted to try out since the I heard the Diesel designers owned this, had lunch - great bruschetta to start and a wonderful turkey salad for meal. Went to breakfast next day and had a tasty french toast and sausage. Antonio was our waiter both times and had excellent service. Great music and a relaxed and cool environment to dine in and watch SoBe go by.

It's Okay...But There's Better

My experience at Pelican was okay. We were seated promptly and service was quick. I had the Shrimp Fettechini (sp?), which was not great at all. The shrimps were dry and had not taste whatsoever, and the Fettechini was bland. Besides the food, it was a pleasant dining experience. Dinner for two came out to $80...I don't think it was worth it at all. I will not go back there again. There are way better restaurants on ... view more

Great food

We were pleasantly surprised by this restaurant, located right on Ocean Drive. The ambience was great, both inside and out on the sidewalk. The food was amazing. Don't pass up the lamb chops, and if you are lucky enough to have the lobster penne special available, go for meal my wife has ever had.
