So delicious that I always find myself ordering the same thing.. The only thing that I dislike about the restaurant is the fact that it's very noisy & if... More

We have been to Elephant Bar several times for lunch and dinners. The food is consistently good, and the service is always very good.

It's a decent place, but it's a bar so what do you expect. Food is so so. Drinks are fine, and if that's what you are going for, you'll be fine.

Went there with a large group. Orders were taken promptly and without notes; as a result some orders were mixed up and medium steaks were very rare and vice versa. Asked 3 times for my drink which finally arrived midway through my meal. Once I got it the refills kept on coming I had a stir fry dish which was... More

Last Sunday went to Elephant Bar, sat at bar area, it was busy, only one bartender, one waitress. Ordered chicken marsala, the chicken was raw, the waitress, although sweet, was too busy to come and check, finally I tracked her down and told her chicken was raw. She brought me another, the chicken was raw again, well duh, it was... More

My husband and I love Elephant Bar, so many great appetizers and entrees, but we especially enjoy the lamb shanks, so tender and juicy on top of the mashed potatoes - it doesn't get better than that. In fact, that particular order is so large with 2 shanks, that we often split it, and are always filled. Whenever we have... More

We were seated next to a large group of children and some parents. The kids had just won some sort of championship and were VERY loud. Since the restaurant was busy, we hated to ask to be reseated but we could not carry on a conversation. Our sever apologized and promptly reseated us. The manager came over and apologized as... More

Although a bit noisy, the food is very tasty and they serve a good variety of mostly Asian style dishes. For those like me with an allergy to mushrooms, be sure to ask what's in the sauce as some of their sauces have mushrooms in the basic stock! Other than that, enjoy!

Went with some office colleagues for a working lunch. The music was too loud in much of the restaurant. We confronted with a Cheesecake Factory sized menu, plus a specials menu. The atmosphere is actually fairly nondescript with allusions to a African safari kind of vibe. The prices and calories are at the very bottom of each menu item's description... More
