Having just returned from Barcelona, we were prepared to look at Elephant with a more critical eye. Bottom line first...GO...FAST...This has always been my wife's favorite restaurant. Frankly we were a little put off by the change in concept. Get over it! We did. Frankly, they tightened up the tapas menu and added entrees having further built out the kitchen.... More

Been several times to meet a friend. Prefer to go early on a weeknight. Quiet enough for conversation. Every bite of food, a marvel. Nuff said.

Small dining room that can get a little loud, of course we usually go on weekends. Great selection of local charcuterie and produce with some hearty wines to accompany. Like that they change the menu often allowing the diner different experiences.

This is my favorite restaurant in Ulster county.The food is so fresh and beyond amazing. Full of flavor everything I have ever had. I am also very pleased with the assortment of wines. If you have never been here you are truly missing out! The service has always been excellent to.

A nice small food and beer and wine friendly place. Quite unusual and well executed food from a tiny kitchen and a small thoughtful bar selection.. Don't be in a hurry here, sit back and savor the food and atmosphere, such quality food from such a small kiitchen will take time, but its well worth it.

The tacos pastor are amazing. I have been in this place only three times and it has won me over. Everything on the menu is simply amazing. The snail toast is so rich in flavor. The tacos pastor had me craving more before I even finished them. Well done!

This place has a mixed restaurant/bar feel and is cozy. The food was amazing. The pork belly tacos were awesome as was their portobello mushroom dish. As a music person their background music was great. Any place where I can hear b side Beatles and Rolling Stones and then catch Primus and the Velvet Underground is OK with me. Make... More

Very small space with a tight staff provide a hip vibe for the best food in the region. Small plates of well conceived and prepared dishes make Elephant my go-to place in the Hudson valley when I want to relax on my own or impress visitors with reliably delicious food. Great imagination and execution goes into each dish here. Although... More
