We stopped by on the recommendation of the rental car guy at the SF airport, and we were glad we did! It was not too busy at late lunch hour, and we were able to sit by the windows, overlooking the water with a view of the airport. The waiter was friendly and service was fine. I had peach bbq...

Great happy hour and reverse happy hour pricing on food and drinks. We stayed at the Bay Landing hotel next door, which made it very convenient. Two minute walk.Great views of SFO and the bay.

Full parking lot with cars driving around hoping for a space. Had to walk 3 blocks to a city street. Popular on a weekend. Just like other Elephant Bar Restaurants excejpt for a view over the bay to the takeoff and landings at SFO.

The view is wonderful, the place is great, the food is average and the service is poor. We ordered a bread that never came, the waiter was too busy to come and take our orders and I had to beg for the bill.

Great bar and restaurant. The food is very good and the wait staff are always friendly and helpful with menu suggestions. Ask for a window table so you can enjoy watching the airplanes take-off and land at San Francisco airport.

I was staying near by and came here for dinner. I was traveling alone on business but I don't mind eating out by myself. I didn't have a long wait which was great since it seemed pretty crowded. I ordered a salad and an appetizer, a glass of wine and a glass of water. I requested the salad come first... More

We enjoyed a nice meal here. We were seated immediately with a view of the bay and airport. My date's choice was Chinese chicken salad. I had some delicious shrimp. The wine selection is good. A very pleasant dinner in nice surroundings. It is very popular so come early!
