We had gotten to the hotel after a very long day of travel and walked to the Elephant Bar. I wasn't sure what to expect, but found the food to be delicious. I had the chicken marsala and loved it. The restaurant had a good variety of items.

two people, steak/fish + desert -> $60 plus tip. Ask for a bay view. Watching the planes come into SFO is spectacular.

The Parmesan chicken with pasta and alfredo sauce was excellent! The chicken was tender and had a really good crusted parm coating. The garlic bread was very good. I had a potato skin app that was very good. The desserts are good too. I had the cookie with ice cream and hot fudge. Service was outstanding. Atmosphere was good. I... More

I ordered a Poké Tuna Salad, and got a salad of mixed greens with pieces of raw tuna on top ... that is not poké and there was nothing Asian about the dish. The name of it was totally misleading. I didn't eat it. It wasn't what I wanted. I was disappointed.

Asked for to go (chicken sandwich and marsala). What i got is steak (well done) instead of marsala. When i called, they said come back and exchange. But after whole day walking in SFO, i didn't have energy to do so. For the food part, its okay. Nothing fancy.

Overall we like eating at this restaurant for different reasons you can enjoy the view, restaurant is clean food is good, plenty of parking and we also like to have a good walk after our food to breath some fresh air near water and watch the plane coming and going in other words just to relax...

Thank lovelife2883
