Good for family

Great atmosphere, friendly staff made family with young children at home. A variety of choice available. The semi-circular corner sofa was a bit awkward to come in and out. Good food and service.

Mika was our server and her service was outstanding. She continued to check back and our meals were delivered as ordered. We had an enjoyable visit and will return again in the future.

My son, wife and I tried this again last December after long interval. We used to dine here frequently in the early 2000's and it had great food and atmosphere. Over the years it declined. We had a coupon and decided to give it another try. Bitter disappointment. Menu got shortened. Food quality got worse. Quantity of food shrunk by... More

My sweetie and I lunch out regularly and we live near the Elephant Bar Restaurant in Fremont. I, also, get emailed coupons from them. I sometimes use the coupons. The food is good and the service is spotty. Sometimes the service is good and sometimes it's not. I suppose it depends on the waitperson. I've eaten many items from the... More

you are lucky. Been there many times, and this time had a great server. She was friendly and took extra care to make sure our meals would meet our expectations. Seems like the wait staff changes frequently. All and all good food.

Mischelle provided suburb service. I had the Trout with Pecan Brown Butter, it was moist, cooked to perfection. My compliments to the chef. The Cheescake with Strawberry was so good, I ate the whole thing! The evening started at the Bar, where the bartender chose to ignore my presence (to order a beer) and chose to flirt with a patron...

I never turn down an opportunity to eat at the Elephant Bar, love the food, Dinner time even the early bird time can find this place very very busy. I would go in between meals if you do not want to be waiting a very long time.

Since there don't seem to be any individually owned restaurants in Fremont except Chinese, which we should've tried, we ended up going to the Elephant Bar. Haven't eaten there in at least 2 years but it used to be way better. I guess they've changed the menu and it was pretty awful. I had a "lightly seared" Ahi salad that... More

This is such a mediocre restaurant. I continue to marvel at its popularity. My most recent meal was an "Asian inspired" stir fry of some sort. Really insipid. This was the fourth or fifth meal here and they have all been uniform in their mediocrity, neither awful nor particularly good. The interior, however, is both clean and well appointed, the... More

Went here to celebrate a special birthday with all the family ages 10 to 70 and everyone was happy and had a great evening. The staff , the food and the atmosphere could not have been nicer.
