The View is Gorgeous!!

The food was good and the wait team was cordial and attentive. But their real claim to fame is the beautiful view of the SF bay. If you get there early (or if you are lucky) you can get a booth that overlooks the bay.

My wife and I ate here twice on a recent business trip to the area. We have eaten here several times over the years and the food and service remains consistently good. I particularly like the views from their many booths located along the bay side of the restaurant. On both occasions the services was prompt and attentive. The food... More

Service has been outstanding, especially by Raoul. My friends and I have gone for lunch quite often, and he always makes us feel very welcome, and takes great care of us.

We were seated by the window, which was nice, but near the bar. They do have glass walls around the kitchen & bar to keep some of the noise away from the diners, but still loud! I had the chicken lettuce wraps becuase I was not too hungry. My hubby had the salmon.

The Elephant bar is two doors down from the Bay Landing hotel. I had the cobb salad and the cheesecake. Both were very good and very large. I have eaten here before and the same is usually. It did take a good bit of time to be ready but I suppose that is the price you pay for fresh made... More

Sits right on the water with a view of the SFO runway. The service was very good, ambiance is very nice and the food was pretty good as well. Nice place to come and eat and look at the planes taking off and landing, and afterward walking along the water.

Wonderful view. The restaurant was very full but we were seated immediately & by a window. It was a sunny day on the bay & sat & watched planes land. Everyone in our party enjoyed their food. I was surprise mine was very tasty. I was concerned since their menu is so diverse. Quick service no complaints. Walked from the... More
