Started with the Calamari appetizer... Don't expect to share. The presentation was as pretty as the menu picture, the Calamari was just pretty scarce. The texture was very odd, too. You don't want it rubbery, but I have never had any that was such a soft, almost mushy texture. The flavor wasn't bad but mainly enjoyed the veggies and noodles... More

The staff is friendly, the food is excellent and the creative cocktails were exactly what we needed on our visit. The manager on duty was very helpful!

It was fun to take my friend to the Elephant Bar when we met in St. Louis. I enjoy the one here in L.A. and she ended up telling the wait person she hoped they'd bring one to Louisville. Love the African themed decor as usual and this one was even more accomodating - he had an ahi sandwich especially... More

Second time dining here and went for lunch this time. They have a nice selection of lunch deals with a few for only $5.50 Seems like they always have good service and we love the look/feel of the restaurant. For as nice of a place as it is the prices really are pretty good. Definitely a more unique menu than... More

I go to the Elephant Bar all the time and it's never, ever disappointed me or my friends. I usually get the salmon and shrimp and noodle soup because it's awesome! Whether you sit at the bar or the restaurant you will always have fast and friendly service even on busy nights! It's really not as expensive as people think... More

My wife and I went for lunch and were so impressed with the menu that we tok our daughters with us for my birthday. Everything we ordered was great but the tomato basil bisque was outstanding, Service was excellent but the food might have been delivered too fast. Put it on your bucket list!

The set up is very appealing and interesting. The food is so good. Tried the fried green beans, mangolian beef and Thai high chicken. I preferred the beef the best but they were all tasty. Staff were all friendly. it was my first time and definitely not my last!

Ate lunch with three friends today and it was great to have normal sized portions of delicious food for a change. They weren't small by any stretch of the imagination and we ate more than enough. The service was lively and polite and the food was delivered swiftly. The menu covers everything from burgers to seafood and Asian. I had... More
