We walked to this restaurant from a nearby hotel. We sat at the bar while waiting for our table and enjoyed the Friday Happy Hour atmosphere. Once at our table we ordered individual salads and one shared entree. The entree arrived already divided and plated from the kitchen. Very much appreciated and great service.

Simply because the drinks and food are pretty good. The service is just ok, but better if you sit at the bar. Their apps are delicios and the view of the AF Bay is nice. The seared tuna is amazing. I typically get it every time!

Nice variety of food choices with many options you don't find at other restaurants. Several craft beers on tap really help make this a great choice.

We came to this restaurant since it was one of the only options that seemed decent within walking distance of the Marriott. It may seem like an Asian restaurant, but the variety is far greater. The food I had ordered was pretty delicious, not the greatest in the world, but more than satisfactory. I really liked this place because of... More

We found the Elephant Bar & Restaurant while walking the sea front path in front of the Westin hotel. Walking in on a Thursday night without reservations, we waited at the big circular bar. The restaurant has a nice vibe - not too loud, but people seemed to be having a great time. We saw several solo people eating their... More

Make sure if you go there, we sign up on the internet and the next time you will get a free appetizer. We were staying at the Marriott and walked down here several times during the week we stayed there. The food is excellent, atmosphere absolutely wonderful and the food is responsibly priced.

We were tired and hungry after a day of travel. The staff were eager to please, but the meal was very bad. He had the Chinese Orange stir fry and I had the Crab and Shrimp Louis. Both were very bad. I rarely speak unkindly about restaurants, but this one does not get my vote!

We come here often and they let you make reservation which is a big plus. Otherwise you will wait a long time during dinner hours. The food is very good and a wide variety in their menu selection. We love to watch the view of the bay and the planes coming in for landing. The only drawback is the noise... More
