Still a Favorite

Dined here for the first time since February. The menu has changed - not multi-page illustrated with photos anymore. Still good, innovative choices available. Had special pistachio-encrusted salmon salad with argula, feta and beets. Very good! My dining partner had Cajun chicken and it must have... read more

I came here with my husband and a few of our friends. We have never been here before but heard good things about it. The atmosphere is pretty cool. It's like an African safari throughout the restaurant. The food was great, I thought. There were many choices including many foreign dishes which I liked. We happened to go on a... More

Good prices but the worst seervice ever. Jeremy,the manager is a sorry excuse for an employee. Hopefully,some of the new competition will inspire some customer service.

We are visiting Albuquerque and had never experienced this chain. We immediately loved the decor which consisted of African animals motif. Drinks were excellent and food was top quality. Service was excellent as well. We will definitely visit again.

I haven’t been to the Elephant Bar in a couple of years. I remember I liked it when I went before. I recently went back this past weekend and I was highly disappointed. I will not be going back unless they make some serious changes. The hostess was very nice and accommodating(that’s probably the only good thing I have to... More

After 4 months of a serious illness and recovery my husband and I went here for our first date night in a long time. It was such a let down and we will never go again. It was a Thursday night and plenty of open seats, they were not busy yet we sat and waited ridiculous time frames for everything... More

I always liked the Elephant Bar, however they have changed the menu and everything has msg in the food except a plain salad. We can not contiue to go. My husband a an allergy to msg. However, the service is very good if you can get past the msg.

The food was good and the wait staff was helpful and attentive. Nice decor, I love anything Africa (ish). There were five of us who were seated in a booth, we would have been more comfortable at a table, I think, but were OK where we were. I had the seared Ahi tuna salad, very good. This is a cold...
