Good food; Great price

The Elephant Bar and Restaurant is conveniently located near several airport hotels near SFO with a waterfront location and good parking. Our dinner was well prepared and the price quite reasonable; staff were attentive and personable. We will return.

We had 40 to 50 people in a side room of the bar. The view of the water and airport are breathtaking. Service was good given the size of our party. Food was well prepared. The prices are not outrageous. The crowd (besides us) attest to the reasonableness. It is worth a visit if just for the view.

We ate at this restaurant 3 nights. Food was excellent all 3 nights. Service was good 2 of the 3 nights. I think they were breaking in a new waitress the one night. She was very nice, but sometimes confused. Overall good experience.

Stayed at hotel next door for short overnight layover, wanted a place to meet up with friends for food and drinks that was close to hotel. TripAdvisor had good reviews so we tried it and we were glad we did. Early Happy Hour went from 4 to 6pm includes discounted appetizers and drinks. After ordering those, waiting on friends to...

Stopped at the Elephant Bar recently to grab a quick bite to eat prior to heading to the airport. It was a great experience. The hostess was very nice and even suggested I head to the bar area to take advantage of their happy hour specials. The waitress was very nice and attentive. We never had to look for her... More

I was genuinely about a short overnight @ SFO and the bayfront Marriott as I always pay a visit to the Elephant Bar. When we were seated and received the menu - I knew something was wrong - they normally have a lush menu beautifully illustrated with pictures of yummy sushi dishes, rolls and similar fare. The new menu was... More

I had a pickup from SFO late evening New Year's Day and the family was hungry. There is not a lot around SFO and even less open after 9:00 on New Year's Day. The E-Bar was one of the few places open. The selection of food at an E-Bar is wide ranging except this night they did not have the... More
