Good menu, good food

This place is always crowded. It's located along hotel row right outside of San Francisco airport. It's my go-to when I'm flying out early morning from SFO. Decent and varied menu. I most recently had the Mongolian Beef which was very good (not as great, believe it or not, as P.F. Chang's Mongolian... read more

I stopped in for a quick appetizer and meal. It was wonderful and the Pot Stickers were absolutely great! The food was good and it was handy to the sidewalk along the bay.

Good for big groups but nothing special about the food. I only go there when I have to, for someone's birthday party or business lunch or dinner.

We ate in the bar at this busy restaurant : typical wait time of 40 mins otherwise at peak times. The food selection was good and yummy when it came. The kids menu had good choices. Our server switched 3 times and none of them seemed to feel our table was theirs. Slow and inattentive service let down our visit... More

This is nice place right on San Francisco Bay. Had several appetizers for our dinner during happy hour, so had a very reasonably priced and very good meal.

Dropped in at the Elephant Bar and Restaurant with a couple of friends. We had a little wait on a Monday night. Our server Amber was as cute as could be and gave us very good service. We ordered the Grilled Lamb which was very tender along with fingerling potatoes green beans. My Hubby order the Mahi,Mahi which he enjoyed.... More

Walking distance to our hotel. Stunning view of the airport and bay if you ask for a window or view table. Service was good. This is a chain, so food was as I expected from dining at other Elephant Bars and of good value. New sangria offering was delicious and pleasantly surprising. Strawberry shortcake special dessert was fresh with generous... More

We went here the last time we were staying near the airport and had a good time watching the planes come in over the runway that juts out in the bay, so we did it again. We had soup and salads which were very good. The service was quick and the server very attentive. It is a fun place and... More
