This is one of the restaurants in the Pelican Hill resort. Had a nice salmon and friends had chick and tilapia. All reported their meals were very good. The prix fix is a good deal at $35 because you get a starter and dessert along with entry. Ordered separately my meal would have cost $57.

I truly enjoyed my meal at Andrea with my wife. The wine list and cuisine has something for everyone. What made the restaurant so memorable was the staff; they were amazing. I felt appreciated and welcomed. I had the Osso Buco and it was perfectly cooked...the meat fell off the bone. Andrea is a cut above most in-hotel restaurants.

Both inside and outside venues provide a romantic and refined setting. The food is sophisticated Italian with a California spin. The service is impeccable.. We ate dinner inside and lunch on the terrace.

This is one of those places you must never neglect. Service, quality, decor, acknowledgment ... all meet and exceed what is expected of a restaurant. Bravo.

They had a set menu with 4 courses to celebrate their Italian Festival. Everything was delicious. The Wine Pairings were perfect and they had a Sommelier to explain anything you wanted to know. This truly was a wonderful evening. You shouldn't miss it. The Ambience is perfect and the views are the best but get there before sunset if you... More

The unprecedented attention to detail in Andrea, to recreate storied culinary traditions and classic dishes bursting with the true flavors of Italy, has resulted in remarkable Northern Italian cuisine, with Tuscan influences in particular, that rivals the nation's top Italian restaurants.
