We sat in the covered out door seating area tucked away around the corner and it was perfect for a little privacy and less noise. It started to rain but they quickly lowered the clear vinyl curtains and all was fine. I loved the ambiance created by the clear lights and blue accent lights hung from the ceiling. Rafael (I believe that was his name) was extremely professional but warm and personal. He certainly made our experience enjoyable. Our appetizers (smoked salmon and burrata bruschetta) were delicious! We had scallops and veal for entrees and they were divine. Or drinks (Woodford and a cosmo) were top notch. Finished it all off with tiramisu and it was a wonderful evening!

Food and service is very good.
Friendly staff delivered complimentary donuts right after being seated.

Because they keep the doors open for patio service, the restaurant is very warm inside.

Next time I will wear shorts and be prepared. There will define a next time. Great for dinner as well.

This place lacks organization, they seat far move tables than the kitchen can Handel. We waited over 75 minutes for our entrees.
Any decent restaurant knows how to balance the kitchen capacity with seating. We were told “we make everything from scratch it’s hard to serve all the meals at once”. They don’t even get it!

Don't be fooled by the looks or location this was hands down the best meal that we had on our trip.
I had the rack of lamb which was cooked to perfection and my wife had the braised short rib which was also delicious. The owner/ chef stopped by our table and talked and joked with us which was a delight.
I couldn't say enough good things about this restaurant and I don't often write reviews.

Don't miss out on this hidden treasure and the talented staff that make dining there an awesome experience.

The food is authentic Italian. As good as your Nonna could ever do.

The service is outstanding and the atmosphere is cozy and warm.

Chef/owner Mark is the quenticential host. Warm and inviting. He makes sure his guests are comfortable and provides a personal touch to each and every guest in the restaurant.

Pelican Cafe is a must visit while in the Palm Beach area.

We went to Pelican Cafe to celebrate my father’s 75th birthday and from start to finish it was an incredible experience!!! When I made the reservation I asked if they could have birthday balloons on the table and a birthday cake and they were more than happy to accommodate. The service was wonderful...very warm, friendly and professional. The food was outstanding...every dish we had was perfection. When they brought out the birthday cake, all of the waitstaff joined in to sing happy birthday to my father which made it super special for my dad. This was such a wonderful experience and we will absolutely be back!!! Thank you so much to the wonderful staff at Pelican Cafe for making my father’s 75th birthday so special!!!

Amazing food!! But like many excellent restaurants in Palm Beach County the “in season” crowds exceed the kitchen and service capabilities so service was slow. But I would not hesitate to recommend... food is really that good and staff is so nice.

Waiter was fantastic. Entertaining while giving us all the special options for the evening. Each of the four of us had something different and ALL LOVED our choices. Great wine selection . Combo provided great background music. The place was packed and the noise level a bit loud......but between waiter, chef and owner they kept checking to see how we were. Highly recommend!
