We were extremely happy with our dinning experience. We had a new young waiter that had a difficult time uncorking our bottle of wine but that was the worst we can say about the entire night of service from him. He was very attentive, knowledgeable and right on top of most everything.
The food was outstanding and the wine pairing was terrific.
The one and only complaint I have is that due to the fact that there was three large parties dinning in the same room it was extremely noisy! Noisy to the extent that you thought you were some kids bar or sports bar. The restaurant was conveniently located within walking distance from our hotel and there were a number of large conferences being held there at the Marriott and that might explain the large groups dinning there. Other than the noise, we couldn't find a thing that we'd change. The food was just delicious and outstanding. I would definitely return and try it again!

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at The Pelican Club on July 7, 2005. We chose the 5-course meal with wine parring - an excellent choice! The waiter, Lance, allowed us to keep our menu so that we could make notes about each course and the wine tasting. A WONDERFUL dining experience. Our compliments to Chef Richard Hughes and Chef Chin Ling for a truly exquisite meal. I'm continue to search for recipes for the Trio Of Creme Brulee!

In general, this is an excellent restaurant. The food is outstanding... it still has the New Orleans flair, but is just different enough.
The dining room can be a little loud and a little crowded at times.
I've had some of the best experiences in New Orleans at this restaurant. Unfortunately, I've also had some of the worst. When they're bad, they're horrible! Some of the wait-staff are excellent, but management needs to screen their employees a little better. Rude behavior, ignoring customers, and slow service occur all too often.
Overall, if you're visiting New Orleans for the first time, I probably wouldn't risk it. There are far better places. If you're looking for something different, and willing to risk a bad experience, try it out. When they manage to hit the nail on the head, they can be great.

Had a great experience at the Pelican Club. Was there for Mardi Gras and was a little tired of the big crowds. Found the entrance off of a little alley and decided to go in. Every thing we tried on the menu was great along with great service. Best bread pudding I have ever had. Wine list was pricey and corking fee was a little high as well. Overall a great place for dinner. Will make another stop next time I am in New Orleans.

Recommended by our concierge, this was definitely an excellent place for dinner. The food was absolutely delicious, and the atmosphere was equally as nice. While most people have heard of Mr. B's Bistro or Gallatoire's, the Pelican Club is one of the lesser known upper-crust restaurants in the French Quarter ... but it's definitely worth checking out. Get the filet mignon ... even if you don't like it, you will love theirs.

We went to this restaurant because it had the perfect user ratings on this site. It was a disappointment. I'd call the food ""Californian"" and living in Calif. I've had better Californian dishes in Calif. $100 can be better spent somewhere else (like Palace Cafe). The service was good, though.

This is a great restaurant!... Even as a former employee, having eaten there just about 5 times a week for a year, I can still say that it is one of my favorite restaurants in NOLA (and that's saying a lot!)... For apps., I highly recommend the Escargot, and Oysters.... for entree, Steak Louis is fantastic!....Ambiance is truly New Awlins! Be sure to tip your hostess! :o)
