The Elephant Bar is Emeryville was disappointing, to say the least. Thankfully, our server was very good and attempted to be accommodating despite the quality of the food. The food selection was adequate, but the quality was very mediocre and definitely not worth even the...More

A regional chain with a diverse menu. Always a safe bet if you're not sure where to go. Decent food, prices, and service.

Great, cool location with an excellent menu, conveniently located across the street from the Marriott Courtyard in Emeryville. Had friends and family meet there as everyone gathered for our Labor Day Weekend wedding in San Francisco.

The Elephant Bar has a unique decor and interesting menu. The starter and dessert were fine, reasonable price and size; however, the main courses were all small and expensive for what was served - although the food was nice. I'd still recommend the Bar, but...More

When I'm in Emeryville, every few months, I usually eat at Elephant Bar at least once. It's a great place to grab a quick meal, and there is a decent bar with plenty of televisions. Great for football season! The food is average. It feels...More
