“birthday @ the Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

I choose the Elephant Bar for my birthday lunch/dinner; it's always delicious and the service is friendly and prompt. Hubby had half sandwich with soup and salad. Presentation was beautiful and tasted great, I was told. Yummy, tomato bisque! The Mongolian beef was tasty but not overly spicy. The woody, warm peppers add to the heat but you need not eat them to enjoy this dish. Oh, for my birthday I got a sundae "on the house."

“Good variety -- younger crowd”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Some items were good, some average. Somewhat inconsistent. More of a younger crowd. Have been a couple of times, may not return with other better resturants nearby.

“Trying too hard...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

I've been here twice and felt the same each time. It seems like they are just trying too hard to be cool. Their food isn't as good as the decor in my opinion and even the decor seems overdone. There were many things on the menu but not many I would choose. I wasn't at all happy with the service we got as we had to ask for silverware three times and for drinks twice. I'm not sure if they are understaffed or just don't care but I've tried twice and won't go back.
