Good food and atmosphere..family friendly

Within walking distance of the Courtyard and many shops, including ice cream or candy, for after dinner. Great selection of food and prices were reasonable.

we were looking for a bar or grill for a nice steak. you will not find that here. if you like Mongolian, then you will like it here. the price is average. about 120$ for both of us. including a bottle of wine.

Our server David C made our experience a good one. We spent several hours here and had multiple waves of apps instead of a normal dinner. Because most of our time was during happy hour the value was very good.

Elephant Bar is a great place to go for good food. This one is always hopping and busy, at least when I've been there. Their specials are very good, and I enjoy just ordering the appetizers for a meal. The food is unique, well-prepared, and tasty. Service was very slow at this particular Elephant Bar, I think just because they... More

I was just there last month with 12 people from my company, but I don't remember it very well, so I guess it was okay . . . Somebody else paid, so that makes it better. It's starting to come back - we had appetizers, yeah, I remember now - the coconut chicken on a skewer was overcooked. We had... More

Needed dinner with wide range of entrees plus the San Francisco Giants game, the World Series clincher! ! Despite the large number in the bar (with the televisions! ) we got our beverage orders promptly. We debated our meal choices, made our... More

Pretty good food for bar food, lots of options for both food and drinks. Wish they had a few more low calorie options but overall it was a good experience. Manager was nice. I'd recommend this restaurant.

We waited for over 30 minutes for them to take our order and another hour for the food to arrive. After waiting for 1.5 hours, we asked about the food and the lack of bread and butter - we were told the food would be on its way shortly and if we wanted bread and butter we'd have to pay... More

Expansive Menu but had parmesan crusted green beans which were good, salmon filet which was very well cooked and seasoned, and sweet potato fries which were prepared very well. Service was great and the beer we had was perfectly cold. The cookie / ice cream dessert was excellent one of the best I've ever had (we had white chocolate macadamia... More
