“The best and worth the drive from anywhere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2012

We headed down from a business event in Anaheim to get away and were rewarded for our effort. Andrea is outstanding from the moment you arrive. The setting is amazing and defies description. The restaurant is definitely first class and the food innovative and perfect. While pricey it is what one would hope for in top end dining. If they have the risotto prepared tableside it is a unique presentation and not to be missed.

“Gorgeous views and lovely environment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2012

We had a five day stay at the Pelican Hill and ate at Andrea's quite a few times. We enjoyed the convenience of having such a nice restaurant right at the resort where we were staying. The do close early, so we were only able to have appetizers on one of the evenings, so make sure you check their hours of operation. We were able to have a nice appetizer that filled our 'need to feed' though - so even if you miss out on the formal dinner there is a nice selection of appetizers that you can choose from. We had lunch here with friends and that was probably the best meal that we had there - the views of the golf course and the overall coast line are amazing. This is a great place to come with a spouse, although there were lots of families here too lounging at the pool. It is quite expensive, but for a splurge, I would highly recommend it. They have menu selections for all ages, so you can bring the kids here for dinner too.

“Perfect setting for a business meeting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2012

I had business guests in from Beijing and wanted to show them the best of Orange County, and Andrea was the perfect choice. The staff here is amazing; service is professional and ready to enthusiastically describe the food choices. The food is Northern Italian, perfectly prepared in smaller portions, so it is not unusual to have a starter, a second course (pasta) and an entree. The wine list is deep and expensive. The setting overlooking the golf course and the Pacific Ocean is incredible, and the prices reflect that this is a world-class restaurant on one of the best pieces of real estate on the planet.
