Horrible experience! I wish I could give zero stars, because the menu shown on the website is incorrectly displayed. I ordered the mushroom risotto, which had no flavor. The wedge salad was okay, but nothing special. As for the Mary?s Chicken, it was drowning in garlic. On to the sides, the mushroom side was the worst thing on the menu. I wonder how could you possibly make mushrooms bad. The potatoes side was the best thing on the menu, which is sad to say. Overall, horrendous food at a high price.
Great service, great food, great environment. 5 stars.
I just had lunch at Andrea at Pelican Hill with my wife on Saturday. We normally would not have gone here because we thought it would be super expensive and it is also further away from the beach than we normally do for a special occasion (my wife?s Birthday). But we found a coupon online for lunch at a good price. We were very pleasantly surprised in many ways. First, the prices are not as high as we thought it would be. The appetizers are a bit higher than normal, but the main courses are about what you would spend at a midrange/high-end restaurant. Their freshly made pasta dishes were under $20 and the filet mignon was around $39 for a big cut. Soup and salads were in the mid-teens, and alcohol drinks are expensive ($15 for a Kettle One Martini with blue chees olives). The blue cheese olives were stuffed these and some of the best I have had. My wife has a long list of allergies, so long we hand the waiter a card listing them. This makes it hard to go out to eat sometimes, but Chef Chris eliminated this issue. Chef came out to our table to go over the list personally and made recommendations and even offered to change the recipe on other dishes so she would not have any issues. One of the dishes I wanted to try was a Hamachi salad appetizer, but of course this had Soy, one of the items my wife could not have. Chef Chris split the order into two separate dishes and from scratch came up with the most amazing Sashimi platter for my wife using blood oranges, which he had bought that day, and other ingredients that I do not remember. On top of some of the best food I have had, the view and service are also awesome. When it comes to this level of restaurant, I am very picky and almost never give all 5-stars, but I would rate this with 6-stars if it was an option. This is a must try place in my book.
I made sure, that I have spoken to restaurant manager for reservations, a week ago. we were so disappointed to go for my birthday And the place wasn?t full at all, they promised us by their manager to give us the best front view of the Occen, and we went there, they told us the table by windows are only for four people, and we have to sit in back rows, anyway for such expensive restaurant, I was expecting a lot more, and I wish I had my birthday, somewhere else, By the way, the tables for front rows was empty All evening, and they didn?t even care that was my birthday, to make it special, the food was ok, we paid for name only, noting special about their food, I would never go back there anymore. Specially I had insisted that if you don?t have good spots by window, we can go to other places.
Great food, ocean view, live music and amazing service. Recommend to grab a table in patio (unfortunately you cannot reserve patio in advance, it is first come, first serve).
Amazing! The best restaurant in several miles around. Great fish and scallops! Really good wine selection.
Used Travelzoo voucher so the dinner for 4 was a treat. Service and food and views are exceptional. This visit was so much better than last year.
Wonderful dining experience, from beginning to end. The dining staff had impeccable attention to detail. Food preparation and plating we're to expectations of restaurants of comparable ratings. My fillet mignon was seared and seasoned to perfection. The chocolate mousse dissert was outstanding. Highly recommended!!!
