I will remember the view at sunset and of this amazing pool while we dined under the so-cal sky on a brisk Spring evening. Wonderful food, great party atmosphere.

We had dinner here last month and had a terrible meal .Since it is such a gorgeous location, we decided to try it again. I am so glad we did. Our dinner was delicious. The menu was new and had much better options for dinner. The service was also great.

Great Food. I had the Margarita Pizza flatbread. It was delicious. The service was good and the rest of the food was good to. I am definitely going back.

The architectural details are sumptuous and the view of the pool and the golf course and the Pacific Ocean are just amazing. And the food and service are great too.

When in Newport, the coliseum is a must for lunch. The setting is absolutely beautiful and lots to choose from on the menu.

It also must be stated that the weather was near record lows. That being said, the two ladies in the party required two blankets each, which were promptly provided by the... More

We had the opportunity to have dinner at the Coliseum Pool and Grill at the Pelican Hill Resort on Newport Coast. It is a fantastic location with a great view over the ocean and up the Orange County coast.

An incomparably fun and intriguing place to dine, the Coliseum Pool & Grill overlooks the "scene" at the strikingly iconic Coliseum Pool, back-dropped by the Pacific Ocean. American favorites on the superbly prepared menu runs the gamut from pizzas, panini and sandwiches to seafood dishes, pastas, specialty salads and even smoothies.
