“Not bad!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Thank god my party of 9 made reservations, the place gets quite crowded for dinner. The menu is large, it was hard to decide what to order because it all looked very good. Their menu focuses on Asian cuisine, with other options like steak, shrimp entrees, burgers, etc.. I ended up ordering the shrimp and chicken jambalaya, which was decent but not amazing. The raspberry lemonade is delicious though, and it comes with free refills! For dessert, we got the ice cream cookie sandwich . The ice cream was good but both cookies were literally bricks, you have to wonder if they just took the whole sandwich out of a freezer or actually made it fresh. Overall, the food is not bad, the service is quite good and the restaurant has a cool atmosphere to it.

“Happy Hour 5 to 7”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The drinks and appetizers are priced right as long as you sit in the bar area or outdoor patio. A couple can have a drink and several appetizers and not spend a lot of money. The appetizers are very good and priced right.

“good variety and prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Love it there and their desserts. Can get quite crowded so go early. We usually go the Campbell site and have been at the
Cupertino site twice.

“Very good lunch..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012 via mobile

I had a very good meal at the Cupertino Elephant Bar. I had not been to a EB in a while, and most of the items on the menu are Asian fusion. This was a nice change of pace for me.

I had the Orange Chicken which was great. The sauce was not too sweet and the chicken was nicely stir fried. I also liked the option to have brown rice.

My friend had the chicken lettuce wrap, which they enjoyed also.

I will have to come back to try others entrees that caught my eye.
