Description: 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 mixologists. 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!

“Average everything”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Picked up a friend from SFO last week and three of us went to Elephant Bar & Restaurant for dinner. Had a moderate wait for a table (30-40 mins). Took a lot of effort to even get a drink from the bar as we waited - it was packed with people eating at the bar and others waiting for tables. Our table had a great view of the planes taking off and landing at SFO. We had a direct view of the wreckage of Asiana Flight 214 that was still on the runway. Our server had no personality and overall service was not good - slow, not checking back on us, etc.. Food was average. Not sure I'd bother going back.

“Great Choice Near SFO”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

We chose the Elephant Bar because it was an easy walk along the waterfront from our hotel, also for the menu selection, which had a good variety and interesting offerings.

We wanted a light dinner after a long flight and were not disappointed with our selections. Husband and I shared the Seared Ahi Tuna, Citrus Salad with Grilled Chicken, and Chicken Lettuce Wrap plus a side of brown rice. Our son had the chicken tenders from the kids menu with a side of fresh vegetables. All the dishes were excellent, the price reasonable, and service attentive.

We were lucky to have arrived before 6:00 for dinner because we were seated immediately. By the time we left there was a number of parties waiting to be called. Highly recommend this place if you can get in.

Food was fine, had a nice grilled teriyaki salmon. Usually a long lime for a table. Ate at bar. Nice view of the water.
