Average restaurant. Nothing special about the appetizers. Entrees have improved from prior visit. Service is good.

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

I was in the Elephant Bar several years ago and it was like a party atmosphere. Shoulder to shoulder people....very popular. Somewhat loud. Very nice décor. Sophisticated. They gave us a little wireless device to call us when our table was ready. The location is right on the San Francisco Bay with nice views of the bay and the aircraft... More

This place has great atmosphere, especially for the kids. The food is good but I feel overpriced. The only thing I really like there is the lamb, but it is one of the highest priced entrees on the menu. My grandson loves the place but usually ends of with a corn dog which is ridiculously overpriced. I would say go... More
