Been to the restaurant several times in the past 4 years, never had a meal I did not like. My group ordered different dishes to share, they were so good nobody wanted to share their dishes.

Perhaps the best service I've ever had at a restaurant. So many vegan options to choose from on the menu -- so little time. I would have liked to come back again, but our trip was short. Great ambience, too. The spring rolls and Cambodian salad were delicious.

My university had an alumni night at this restaurant. I enjoyed both my starter and the entree. The Crêpe au Canard et Champignons is very tasty. I also loved the Pavé de Saumon de Norvège. Even the leftover salmon tasted wonderful the next day. And if you are a mashed potato lover theirs is one of the best. Hope this... More

This is one of those unusual restaurants that do two cuisines very well. The French dishes are like a very good Parisian bistro and the Cambodian are just as fine. Good service, nice wine list.

Elepant Walk is always special. Their food is a Cambodian/French and is deliciously different. Special favorites are the Salad Camboigienne, the Rouleaux, Loc Lac, Crevettes (either dish is great) and Poulet a la Citronelle. Excellent food and a really nice restaurant.

OK, I was giving this restaurant another chance, it seemed pricy in the past. I ordered the sliced tenderloin as part of the Restaurant Week menu along with the mussels as an appetizer. I shared the appetizer with my wife, who usually likes items infused with garlic, but they were overpowering, even for her. The tenderloin was tough, and frankly... More

This restaurant has a sentimental value for me. The Elephant Walk is my favorite restaurant, over the years, I leaned to appreciate this restaurant. This last time I had Saumon Rôti aux Saveurs d'Automne. Yes, this is my new favorite dish! I am planning to celebrate my birthday here and enjoy this superb dish! It's a pan-seared Faroe‏ salmon on... More

We loved this restaurant - upscale without being fussy - service was very friendly and food was delicious - they offered to make almost any dish without nuts and made us feel welcome.

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
