We came back again because of Oscar's great service and spicy house sauce. On this trip Oscar recognized us from a month ago and took care of the rest. However, this trip was even better because he remembered that we liked our food spicy and even had the sauce ready when our order arrived. His service and homemade sauce are... More

I asked the waiter for a lunch recommendation and he said: “Tri-Tip is the best.” I asked him how he recommended it be cooked and he asked if I would like it exactly as in the menu photo with some red. I said: “Yes, please.” The tri-tip was served with no red at all. It was overcooked and not as... More

We decided to try this place again and it was pretty good considering. Given the demographics I expected the food to be spicy or at least for them to have a spicier option. Our server made a spicy mix for us at our table and he even brought us a few jalapeños and peppers per our request. This place would... More

We eat their about once a month. Their food is good and varied. Portions generous. Service is good. Restaurant is a bit noisy. Wait can be 15-30 mins. around the dinner hour, except at the bar. Their north facing patio is pleasant on a hot day & they have heaters for cooler weather. They provided excellent hors d'oeuvres and service... More

This was our second visit here. No waiting for hours like the last. Bar area was good however this time we were given a dingy corner. Ambience in this places was 0. If it was a brighter area my opinions may be different. Food was ok. May try going back after a few months.

Enjoyed the atmosphere. Nice bar area with a good selection of beers. Food was very good. Service was virtually non-existant and I didn't care for the service mentality. Place was clean. Prices were high but still decent. Very crowded in the evening and on weekends and we gave up once because there was no parking.

Been going to the Elephant Bar Restaurant for years. There are some healthy choices which I have to admit I haven't tried. My favorite item on the menu is their quesadillas and lettuce wraps. I love the lemon chicken which can be a hit or miss sometimes. Huge portions you can share family style. Fun atmosphere.

This restaurant is located in a huge shopping center alongside Stevens Creek Boulevard near Vallco Shopping Center and a few blocks from Apple computer headquarters. From the outside, the restaurant looks fantastic with a huge neon sign on a circular building with ground level windows all around. Parking can be a problem on weekends with the huge shopping center parking... More

Went there earlier this week to have an after work diner. We got seated immediately, the menu gave an immediate how "rich" a dish would be - still wondering how they near a 1000 calories per "creme brulee" but that's something else. Main dish tasted excellent, but the icecream we took as desert had ice particles in it (meaning it... More

Went to elephant bar as I received a gift card during the holidays. The atmosphere was good. Went in the evening - California salad was great, steak was alright, service was good for a very busy Saturday evening ! There were many families out here for a good dinner.
