Friendly Service, and good food if

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.

Went there with my family to celebrate my wife's birthday. Normally it is a restaurant we enjoyed going to. This time, the service turned us off, and we are not going back. We have a table of 8, and upon being seated, we were given water and menus. After 15 minutes, no one appeared to take our orders. While the... More

The lettuce wraps were yummy with just the right amount of spice, and the burger cooked to perfection. Love that you can pick out exactly the way you want it.

The service is okay, food is served quickly, the menu varied, but limited in vegetarian options. Overall, nothing special, though if you like alcohol & meat, you will enjoy it more.

Got there before the real crowd showed up which allowed us to visit in quite. The food overall was alright, found mine to be way to cool [cold] for just coming out of the kitchen area; lost all interest in even finishing the meal which I didn't. My wife & aunt's meals were hot for you could see the steam... More
