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

We dined twice at the Elephant Bar in Burlingame as it was a short walk from our hotel. Both times, there were waiting lists to get a table but we were able to enjoy a drink at the bar while waiting. Bar space a bit tight, second time there could only get one seat at the bar, but service was... More

Stumbled upon this great restaurant as we stayed at the Bay Landing in Burlingame. Food was awesome. Staff very friendly. Would definitely eat here again.

Friendly staff, great views, but the food is OK at best. Nothing to write home about, little flavor. Nice for family's and kids feel welcome.

Elephant Bar in Burlingame never disappoints, eaten here many times. Great food, service, and drinks. Has a great views of the airport and Bay. Make a reservation, and they have free valet. Just love this place.

Ate here because it was late and we were staying near the airport. Any restaurant with carpeting is immediately suspect of their cleanliness - you can smell the aromas of meals past on that carpet. The food on the menu sounds great but the execution and quality is not good. They can't even cook edamame which was stale and tossed... More

The menu seemed exciting but the food really was not that good. We tried several dishes but we were not impressed, it was not worth the prices being charged. Take a cab to San Francisco for a good restaurant.
