Did you know that this place opens at 10 a.m. on Saturday? We had grassy service from Katie and the food was absolutely amazing. Try The 8 a.m. It's coffee with a kick! It was great eating without a big crowd and we had a great time!

This place has a fun feel and I've eaten here five or six times but the menu makes everything sound tastier than it ever turns out to be. We've eaten burgers, tacos, salads, Asian dishes, and American classics but nothing is ever remarkable, just okay. The appetizers are pretty good but the entrees are not competitive with other chains with... More

It's my last night in Albuquerque (first time visit) and don't know where else to dine. A business colleague suggested Elephant Bar. I've never dine in a fusion restaurant and don't know what to expect. Of the menu I tried Blackened Mahi-mahi, a dish I've had in other seafood restaurants. To my surprise, it was an excellent, savory dish ...... More

We stopped for a Sunday afternoon snack after traveling and thoroughly enjoyed our beverages and an excellent order of prime rib sliders. Service was great and atmosphere was fun and upbeat. Placed was packed....must be a Sunday thing!

The food was good, but it took a really long time to get it. We were seated right away, but were not served our food for at least 30 minutes.

Ran us back to sit in the back corner of the restaurant. Seats had grease all over them. The menu I was handed had dried sticky stuff all over it. Disgusting! Prices too high for finger foods.

I went while on a business trip to the area thinking it would be the same as the one in Burlingame, CA. Let's just say, I will stick to the one that I usually go to where the management and staff look like they want to be there. Maybe it was because it was near the end of the evening,... More

Elephant Bar Restaurant is a scratch-kitchen specializing in globally-inspired dishes and traditional, American fare. Our food is all made from scratch using the best, locally-sourced ingredients available. All of our cocktails are made fresh when you order, handcrafted in-house by our mixoloogists. Brunch is offered on weekends 10am-2pm with brunch cocktails, patio dining, and delicious specialty brunch entrees. We've kept the same, great Elephant Bar Restaurant exclusives you've come to love...but made them better, using only made-from- scratch methods and high-quality ingredients. Better menu items, new craft cocktails, new wine list, and new brunch cocktails. We've completely evolved. We can't wait to see you soon!
