I had the Ahi Poke salad which was delicious. The Tortilla soup was okay. The other 4 had assorted entrees which looked good. The E Bar is a fun place to go. I used to go to the one In Modesto and enjoyed it. Too...More

Hadn’t been to The Elephant Bar in quite a while so I was excited to meet there for a business lunch. I was oddly disappointed in the menu; did seem to have really any thing ‘new’ or exciting. I had the smoked bbq chicken sandwich...More

There was a heat wave in the city and you will find no relief here. It was too hot to eat there. I ordered something to go. The salmon was over cooked, dry. The salad had no dressing. The artichoke dip was not much better.

The fish & chips are quite good, but other than that...meh. Dinner salad tasteless and not enough dressing. Nachos had microscopic amounts of cheese. Service slow & uneven. It's convenient if you're staying at the Doubletree across the street...where their Twigs cafe is infinitely better...More

The staff are friendly. The food is always fresh and tastes good. Prices are a bit high but not unreasonably so. I have no reservations about going back.

Had dinner at Elephants Restaurant. Found the food ok. We sat outside, it could use some dressing up. The menu was minimal, but did receive good service.

Staying for a conference across the street at the Doubletree some friends had warned us this location was substandard, we made the mistake of going anyway. The paper menus looked ancient and were covered in stains. The upbeat vibe I remember from my local Irvine...More
