Good place to eat

Come to Torrence a couple of times a year and the Elephant Bar is a good place to go out to eat. Good food at reasonable prices.

I don't come here often, because the food was just ok for me. I normally order the Asian fusion type food from the menu. The service is good and parking is normally easy, but could be difficult during lunch time.

My family and friends brought me here for a nice birthday celebration. We were a party of about 18 and had reservations. The staff was very pleasant, easygoing, attentive and accomodating. They were on top of things immediately in terms of making sure to take care of splitting the check during the ordering process so there was no hassle at... More

I've eaten at Elephant Bars in many locations and the food is always tasty and well prepared. The serving staff is always pleasant and responsive. And the drinks are all great. I happened to be there during happy hour and had a mai tai. It was fantastic.

They open at 11am. I arrived first and was seated even though 4 other members of my party hadn't arrived yet. I ordered a Mai Tai (which was delicious). Once the rest of my party arrived we ordered lunch (albeit pretty leisurely)- the waitress kindly kept checking in on us to ascertain when we were ready (tactfully, without rushing us).... More

Food is better than average with terrific Happy Hour menu. Only complaint would be the noise level which can be extremely loud and distracting. Waiters are friendly and efficient. I would not recommend patio area for dining unless you wish to consume auto exhaust (looks directly at street and parking lot). Parking can be extremely difficult (restaurant row area), so... More

this location seems to have trouble with service and the chain overall is not a great food value. It seems that the the push is to get people in and out like most big corporate locations. I felt rushed every visit. Atmosphere is cold and uncomfortable. Food portions small.

The Elephant Bar has a very wide variety of food types. Many of the plates are quite unique in the pairings, and in the spices. They have menu choices that you will not find elsewhere, and they will be excellent.

Nice ambience, but a bit loud. Dinners included a variety of dishes than combined cooking and flavors from around the globe. Best dishes had an oriental flavor.
