Consistent over the years.

This chain of restaurants has remained consistent in quality and prices since it first opened its doors. The interior decor always reminds me of Africa, yet the food choices are a mix of national and international. I've visited this restaurant about 6 times within one year and at this location... read more

Since the Elephant Bar has been bought out by another chain the menu has changed. Not to many selections and menu is not the same. Very disappointed

This is a chain of restaurants which offer some 'typical' dishes like burgers and pastas and salads, but many have a delicious or unique twist. One in our party had a cheese burger - with bleu cheese and pear topping - very good. I had Teriyaki chicken which was also very good - and the portions are quite large, very... More

Great restaurant with good food and friendly staff. Bar is in the front of the restaurant and not too loud for dinner guest. Large portions. Safe neighborhood.

We took our neighbor there a couple of months ago. Selection on menu improved from prior visits. Food tasted better too. Disappointed that they no-longer take the Safari Club / Senior discount promotions they used to. Understand new ownership did away with them. Always seems that chain eateries change things, usually not for the better.

The wait was long, and the food wasn't the greatest. I ordered the Warm and Spicy Artichoke Dip and the Stir fired chicken in Hoisen sauce and sweet ribs with the special fried rice (a special on the menu). The fried rice was very cold, and the food was way too sweet. My colleague had the same experience as well... More

We are not from California but have eaten at an amazing Elephant Bar in Sacramento so we were really happy to see one on this trip. We were so disappointed! Not sure if something happened to the quality of food but there were only 10-12 people in the entire restaurant on a Monday evening at 6:00-6:30 p.m. I ordered a... More
