Mediocre

I have been several times. Everyone thinks this place is super spectacular and over the top... I do not see it. I do not find it worth the wait; for a table and then at the table for 30 minutes. Most of the time my food is like warm when I get it. And I find the food is overpriced... read more

This place used to be very popular with long waits. Lately, they've changed their whole advertising campaigns as well as their menu, and we had no problem getting a table for 8 on a Saturday night. They used to have coupons all the time, but now there is none. The food was never the best, but it has gotten worse... More

Good food and many options. The bar is well stocked. A little expensive side for the drinks but food is ok here

I really enjoyed this place. The décor is really cool - you'll like it. The vast majority of the entrees here are under 20 bucks. The service is great. I had the lettuce wraps and that was enough for me. This is a chain, but it was new to me as I am from CT. I will return!!

Atmosphere is just OK. I thought it was going to be an Indian restaurant and it isn't and I was disappointed. But more disappointing was the bad service we received. First we waited over ten minutes for anyone to stop by our table. Then we waited at least 20 minutes for our drinks and starters. Then one of us still... More

Was one of our regular consistent restaurant until owner change and then menu change then staff change. Used to be packed. Now we easily find room. Food ok at best and service poor

I don't blast places to often because I understand that my words could impact their business. However, when you provide undercooked food/meat I think everyone should know. The server was AMAZING and one of the two apps we had was good but that's where it all ends. Shrimp was overcooked while my chicken was raw. Not a little pink but... More

I travel here for work about once a year and the Elephant Bar has always been on my list to visit because it had a large and varied menu along with some great salads. This has apparently changed. The menu has changed dramatically from what I remember. Fewer items of less imaginative food. Not finding what I was looking for,... More
