Crowded but Worth the Wait

Main bar area is noisy and crowded but lower area is quieter and fine for families with small children. Overlooks the South Bay with SF Airport runway in background. Food prices were very reasonable and food itself was good.

We chose this place because they were able to accommodate a party of 30 and they did it well! I got my food and drinks promptly and surprisingly faster than i thought i would in a party as large as ours.

We had a nice spot with a great outlook of the planes taking off. Excellent! Food was well priced however, sadly, there was so little to choose from for a vegetarian. Only a veg burger on offer; really? With a kitchen that is turning out such a range of food it's hard to imagine. Drinks were expensive! This amped up... More

My wife and I had dinner here in March 2015. On the two key dimensions - food quality and cost - this place rocks! Very tasty and well prepared meals at an amazingly reasonable price. Our negatives concerned service quality. For example we booked ahead but still had to wait (with one of those irritating buzzer-flashing light things in our... More

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
