A short stay in Boston meant we spent several days walking past this subdued restaurant without realising that is what it was: a restaurant. When you enter, the interior is spacious, simply but tastefully furnished, and offers a wide range of wines with interesting menu choices. A traditional Cambodian entree with turmeric, noodles and coriander along with other Asian ingredients... More

I have been to this restaurant twice and was extremely pleased with the food and the service. They serve Cambodian and French food. They will adjust to your dietary needs. They have a very nice wine list and if you are not sure they will offer a taste if they have a bottle open. The spring rolls are a must... More

I’ve been a repeat visitor to Elephant Walk for many years. The French side of the somewhat unusual menu suits my husband’s tastes and the Cambodian side is perfect for mine. On our most recent visit to the Beacon Street location, I was somewhat disappointed. The rouleaux (spring rolls) to start were as crispy and flavorful as ever. I finished... More

I was here for a business meal with a large group of people. There was a pre-selected menu, and they definitely had something for everyone - from meat to fish to vegan. The portions were large, and the food was well-prepared and tasty.

We were walking along after my son's graduation, seeking a place to eat and were intrigued by the concept of a combination French/Southeast Asian restaurant. It more than met our hopes. Service was very good. I had a cold avocado soup that was as good as I've ever tasted and a boeuf bourguignon that was quite tasty and incredibly tender.... More

We've been going to Elephant Walk for years and our latest visit did not disappoint. We had a diverse group with dietary issues and there were so many options that we were thrilled. Start with the spring roll appetizer, as well as any of the salads. All of the fish dishes are great. Even dessert was a treat!

Elephant Walk is in a great neighborhood location on Beacon St., out past Fenway. It's easy to get to by T if you're in town, one block from the St. Mary stop on the Green Line. This place serves a wonderful combination Far East/Cambodian with French influences. The dishes are pretty unique because of that combination. We went during Boston... More

One of our favorite places to eat when we. Is it Boston twice a month. The duck crepe is awesome and the potato soup just terrific. All of the desserts are fabulous and the ambiance is great. This place was once a bank...how cool is that.. Take advantage of the price fix.

The menu had a French touch with quite a variety. The quality was very good and fair value. There was a prix fixe menu with three or four courses that was quite a good deal for a French style meal.

This is a really high class neighborhood establishment. It's likely not going to be the best meal you've ever had, but they have a reasonably priced, very refined tasting menu and a good variety of both vietnamese and french inspired cuisine. I was impressed with how well those two cuisines went together. If you're looking to relax for a slow,... More
