We go here when killing time to take a flight out of SFO. Probably will start looking elsewhere. Always busy when we've been which is fine. We were seated fairly quickly but the service after that was slow and neglectful . The waiter forgot our appetizer order. The soup was lukewarm and had to be sent back. Other dishes were... More

Good service and just next door to Vagabond....don't have to walk far. The only bad comment is that one cannot use a senior or 20% discount card at this Elephant Bar location! :(

We had our last night out here, were seated at the window with a fabulous view of the landing runway, with planes landing and going out. The food was good, nice menu, good wines, good service. A place I would come back to.

You'll find good food and drinks at fair prices, with quick service here. Nothing is outstanding, but it's an easy walk from the airport hotels. If you like airplanes, you'll love the view of SFO.

If you're staying out at the SanFran Airport, this is a great spot for dinner or drinks. Just a short walk down from the Marriott Airport Hotel on Bayshore and near many of the other Airport hotels nearby. The view out to the water and the jets landing is fantastic. There is a good mix of locals and fellow travelers.... More

A great restraunt and bar overlooking the bay and airport. If you're tired of the hotel bar and restraunt, the Elephant Bar is a great place to go if you are staying at a San Fransisco airport hotel in Burlingame. Awesome service and food, with a mix that has something for everyone. I stuck with the Asian food, but the... More

Lots of hotels around and this sits just South of SFO. Right out the back door is the runway of SFO, one can watch takeoff and landings all night long. I liked the menu, very unique. It had burgers, jambalaya, Asian chicken, beef, fish, salads, etc...something for everyone. Prices are very reasonable, it's not a wallet breaker.

Loud, but good. Great spinach dip and homemade Parmesan chips. Need WAY more servers in the bar area. They always seem overwhelmed and rushed, but polite. Great views to bay and planes landing. Good drink choices, a bit pricey overall.

The food is excellent and the prices here are very reasonable. We had an hour and a half wait on Father's Day, but it was worth it...
