Happened to be staying at a hotel near SFO and there didn't seem to be many choices. So the hotel desk clerk suggested this one. A bit off the path but good for hotel travelers staying in the area. Although it wasn't very full, the service was a little slow. Not the fault of the server. I think they were... More

My husband and I have been enjoying meals at Elephant Bar for several years, and enjoyed two different meals there this past weekend. Only complaint was the length of time it took to have a hostess greet us on our first visit at 8:45 pm on Weds 2/8. We waited for nearly 15 minutes for someone to approach the hostess... More

Close to the Marriott and good reviews on TripAdvisor. Food was very good and service was friendly and efficient. Jambalaya was a good choice, along with the Parmesan Chicken & Shrimp w/alfredo. Decor and furnishings are a bit worn and booth for six a bit crowded, but the prices are very reasonable. Too full to try the extra large desserts.... More

A great bar and restaurant that's buzzing. Elephant Bar is positioned on the water with a lovely outlook. The bar has a great selection of cocktails and we enjoyed a margarita on the rocks. The lamb shanks are divine. A great dining experience if you are staying near the airport.

Grabbed lunch here before hopping a plane at SFO. Place is a chain but the menu was anything but routine. My bacon-encrusted chicken breast accompanied with tangy chimichurri mashed potatoes and mushrooms was yummy, and my dining companion enjoyed her citrusy chicken salad. The waitress acted as though she'd rather be somewhere else, but the food arrived hot and in... More

Ate here because it was the closest restaurant within walking distance of our airport hotel. Food average, service spotty (we had a waitress in training, but happy hour prices were reasonable and it was a step up from ordering pizza in the room. Nice view of the bay, with planes landing and taking off.

Went for lunch while attending a conference and staying at the Bay Landing Hotel across the parking lot. I had a delicious salad with chicken, nuts and fruit. Excellent. The service was fast and friendly, the view of the bay was nice and the ambiance was pleasing. I would eat here again.

Thank Theresa S
