The name on the door was Adventure Bar and Grill, but nevertheless, Elephant Bar appeared on the receipt. Having about an hour to kill at ABQ Uptown, a meal seemed like a good idea and this was a place we'd never tried. The menu included seafood and a large number of other choices at reasonable prices. Unfortunately, ahi tuna was... More

We arrived at a busy time and were going to have a wait so decided to sit in the bar. It was extremely noisy in there (but yes, it was busy, and it was the bar so exactly as we should have expected). Very prompt service and a good selection of beers. I had the New Zealand Lamb Shank and... More

The food was great. The staff is even better! These folks work very hard to take care of each and every customer. They handle problems before they become problems. A real set of classy individuals from managers to drink runners. The bartenders are fabulous! Jan and Jennifer were right there to keep a drink fresh with a smile and wow... More

While friends were showing wife and I around the city, we stopped here for lunch. Did not know what to expect, due to establishment's name, but I am glad we tried it. Food was excellent and service was fast and friendly. Prices were very reasonable, especially based on the size of the portions. Wife and I could have split just... More

I like Elephant Bar and Grille for variety of food selection, especially Asian food. It's a fusion style. Price is a little high. The service is fast and efficient. The atmostphere of the restuarant is nice too.

We met friends for dinner here and had a very nice dinner together. The restaurant has a very spacious and quiet atmosphere and extensive menu. So many dishes to choose from so everyone got something different. We started out with a calamari appetizer as well as coconut fried green beans which were enjoyed by all. The Mongolian beef dish was... More

The dining experience that my husband and I had at the Elephant Ear was enjoyable. The food was flavorful and just a bit exotic, and the service was good (although it took longer than it should have for a member of the wait staff to realize we hadn’t been served). The optional chopsticks at the table are a nice touch.

The restaurant is close to Homewood Suites so it was an easy walk. This Elephant Bar is located in a large shopping complex. The food was very good and the service was great. Prices average for the type of restaurant. Liked it.

My husband and I went to this place for our last night in Albuquerque. It's big, with a circular bar at one end (with TVs), tables and booths at the other and a view of the kitchen. It was only a Tuesday night but the place was bustling. The noise level was dreadful, shouty pop music at such high levels... More
