I love their menu with an array for vegetarian, seafood and meat eaters. I come away satisfied and bring home leftovers for another meal. I love their dishes from salads and pasta dishes. My husband likes their fish and sticks.

Food was adequate. Service was marginal. After the long wait to be seated, we had anticipated better ambience and higher quality food. On the other hand...if you like the buzz of crowds of people and not knowing who you will run into, it just might be worth your time

Disappointing. Sent the first set of entrees back - I won't accept lukewarm food. Freshly cooked second set took 35 minutes in a restaurant half full. Not good. Quality just okay, nothing special or even very tasty (chicken marsala)

My long time friends and I meet up once or twice a year and we went to the elephant bar and literally closed the place, we were the last to leave and even after we left we sat outside talking for 2 hours! Food was good, drinks were good and the company was definitely good! One complaint was when I... More

There is an Elephant Bar near us and we thought we should try it. Bad choice, the food was over priced for what you got! We started with appetizers and it was ok. Hubby choose the jambalaya, it was rice with sauce, didn't see hardly any seafood. I choose some Tai food specialty, it was again rice with some veggies.... More

We had a party of three and asked to sit on the outside patio where we were promptly forgotten. I did not set a timer but it was at least 5-10 minutes before we saw a server after someone had peaked their head out the door onto the patio. When the server finally arrived, he said he had not been... More

I really liked this restaurant. The setting inside is dark and somewhat elegant. The food is tasty and the service was good. I would suggest coming here if you are looking for a nice restaurant to meet with friends or family.

Came in for dinner with the kids around 6:45pm. Our waiter was kind enough to recommend shareable items since it was still happy hour and you get $3.00 off. Calamari was good, however the portion was smaller than any other place we had before. We also ordered a French onion soup, that had a not so good after taste and... More

We had lunch at the Elephant Bar before heading to the airport. The spritzers were huge and the "shareables" were satisfying for one person. The coconut shrimp were incredible. The creme brûlée was sublime and enough to be shared with 5 guests. Elephant sized portions that did not disappoint. Our waitress was also very amiable and attentive to the two... More
