Another fine dinner from Elephant Walk. The mussels appetizer was quite flavorful and delicious. The steak grille never disappoints.

Elephant Walk - May 2013
The Elephant Walk in Cambridge is an excellent choice for a romantic dinner or for a moderate sized group to spend a leisurely dinner. The service is always first rate and the food is usually very good. We tried the prix fixe menu for the first time (Chef's Recommendation's-four course) and we were very happy with the results. The wine list is solid, not outstanding, but the choices are all usually good pairings with the various options on the menu. The Amok Royal is a standout among the standard menu

All around great dining experience. The pace of service was superb, and the waiters were very friendly and helpful. It felt like a very organized restaurant and there were no hitches. The food was delicious and very different in the best of ways. Just an awesome place with awesome food.

We live close to Elephant
We live close to Elephant Walk Cambridge and it just gets better and better. The food has improved greatly since we first went there and it is now one of our first choices for dinner when we just don't want to cook. The food is unusual and always very tasty. The service is fine and I like the fact that we are not interrupted with questions from the waiter about whether we are happy or not. Great place.

Not your typical Cambodian
Not your typical Cambodian restaurant. The food is much more upscale with a fascinating mixture of Asian and French tastes.

the menu was pretty impressive
the menu was pretty impressive and the waitress did a good job recommending entrees according to our preference. food was tasty though a bit too salty.

So perfect every time!
I love consistency and that you get at the Elephant Walk. It is consistently good. It is a warm and pleasant atmosphere, with outdoor dining if you prefer. Entrees are prepared with delicate herbs and spices. They offer traditional Cambodian or original French . I particularly like the Poulet a la Citronnelle, one of their traditional Cambodian dishes. The Rouleaux appetizer (crispy spring rolls) is wonderful. Of particular note this visit was the exceptional Cold Avocado Soup and, of course, their special Pomegranate Cocktail! You never feel rushed and the attentiveness of the server is spot on. Enjoy!

Great food and convenient location!
This was a fun place to go with all my family that was in town! We enjoyed the food, service, and my niece loves elephants. Cant go wrong!

Our meal was, as always at Elephant Walk, beautifully presented and very delicious. The atmosphere is welcoming and appealing.
5/31/2013 4:00:00 PM
Delightfully unique and special.
The menu intimidates some at first but it's all good! I am repeatedly surprised by the unique presentations and the deliciousness of the food! It covers 2 or 3 cultures; it's light/healthy and fully flavorful. Never disappointed. Recently enjoyed the tuna appetizer (beautiful!) and the spicy shrimp entree--absolutely fabulous! When we are in Boston it's our go-to restaurant for special occasions or to take the friends" parents.

Crevettes Amrita -- heavenly
Father's Day lunch with family was divine. the Rouleax is excellent and my crevettes amrita -- shrimp with rice and some garnishy vegetables was among the most delicious dishes I've ever eaten, no joke. Our entire family is crazy about Elephant Walk -- but this was our first visit to the Cambridge location. Beacon St location is fab too.

great food rising prices
the elephant walk which serves fantastic high end cambodian and french food is a good restaurant in cambridge with ample free parking and stays open later than other restaurants in the area. however, over the years, the prices have been rising and the other night a friend and I split an appetizer, had two vegetarian entrees, one of us had a glass of wine, and we split a dessert and the bill was almost $70 without the tip. this no longer makes it a place to meet friends for dinner after work. Delicious food but expensive with an ambience that is comfortable but neither private nor quiet...

Our Anniversary Brunch
We really enjoyed celebrating our anniversary at the Elephant Walk Brunch. The prix fixe was wonderful - plenty of food and excellent flavors and tastes. The service was perfect - no one hovering over us, but server showed up when needed. The mango dessert was to die for! We can't wait to go back!
6/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
great team dinner
I took a dozen colleagues from work here for a team dinner. Eveyone had a great meal, and I appreciated the gluten-free menu.
Our waitress was very attentive, and although it was pretty busy the noise level was acceptable - you could hear more than just the people sitting directly next to you.
6/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Definitely worth visiting
Had never had Combodian. My wife, 17month old and I were traveling on Boston and found the restaurant rated very highly on an app from zagat. We took a shot and loved the place. Great food, very comfortable for our child and great service. Would definitely go again.

Spring rolls, curried shrimp
Spring rolls, curried shrimp and quinoa risotto were all excellent. Mocha dessert was a disappointment as was the spotty service. Waiter was attentive at first then disappeared for long periods of time. After delivering the dessert menu and again after presenting the check he was nowhere to be found.
I've been to all 3 Elephant Walk restaurants multiple times, Love the spring rolls!

Love it here!
I really love it here. I would recommend it for foodies because they have food there that you really can't find anywhere else. The combination of flavors that they use are very enjoyable. If you are looking for something different and you are tired of the chain restaurants, I highly recommend this place. It's good for a special occasion of just 2 people (any more than that and the seating is just weird). The service was great (they make sure your water glass is always full!). I love that they have their own parking lot! Makes it so easy. My only criticism is the seating. If it's busy, you may be seated VERY close to another party and you start to feel like you are eating with them. I did not see a good set-up for groups.

Wide variety menu , made simple

We went to The Elephant Walk for our anniversary dinner. We had a 6:00 reservation and were seated right away. It was great that this restaurant has parking right behind the building so that you don't need to worry about paying for or finding parking elsewhere. I have Celiac disease, so finding a restaurant with so many gluten free options is always a positive! We had the Nataing appetizer which was delicious. The coconut milk and other flavors were really different and yummy! Both my husband and I had a shrimp entree (I had the curry de crevettes and my husband had a special) and we both cleaned our plates! My husband kept commenting on how flavorful the food was. We also indulged in a chocolate torte which was rich and creamy! YUM!
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Highly recommended on all
Highly recommended on all counts! Prix fixe menu is fabulous.

This restaurant never disappoints. Great food and wine list!

Dependently superior. One
Dependently superior. One of Cambridge's's best and most interesting restaurants.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
The waitress was knowledgeable and careful about my food allergies. Food was interesting and delicious. One dish was spicier than I expected so ask about "hotness". Portions are big - we had an appetizer and dinner and couldn't finish. I'd go back in a minute!
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of my favorite restaurants
Everything is always excellent which is why I enjoy it so much!
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
A lovely setting with reliable food
We love having the Elephant Walk in our neighborhood because we always enjoy ourselves there, thanks to the great decor upstairs, good service and interesting delicious food.

Great food. Service was fast
Great food. Service was fast and efficient. I ordered the 4 course pre-fix which it was a little bit too much food for me. Food was superb! Loved the Roloeaux and the Crevetes Sur der Mer. A must go restaurant. Great for dates!
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazingly Creative - Delicious!
Appetizers and Entrees were delicious. The desserts did not have the same impact. The serving team was understaffed and our waitress had way too many tables but somehow was able to just barely keep it all together. She was frazzled but handled the volume well. The restaurant needs to make sure they staff appropriately as a certain level of service is expected at a restaurant of this caliber.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
A little pricy for what you get, but the food was delicious. We had to wait awhile to get our order taken, which was unnecessary as we were the only ones in the restaurant at the time as we were eating early, but otherwise service was friendly and prompt. Lots of options for non-carnivores and the gluten-intolerant.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
We recently went for dinner at the Cambridge location. The food and drinks were great! I ordered the seared tuna with 2 sauces & crispy ravioli. While very good, the spicy sauces were poured generously onto on the plate and wound up saturating the ravioli to the point that they were soggy. They overpowered the fish because there was no getting away from them as they were like soup in the bottom of the plate. My suggestion would be to have the sauces in little bowls on the plate and have the beautiful fish and crispy ravioli stand alone so that the diner could control the amount of sauces and thereby maintaining the textures/heat level of each item on the dish. It would help the plate visually, too, as it wasn't the most appealing looking.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really enjoyed the combination
Really enjoyed the combination of Cambodian and French food. The Beef Bourgonion was very rich and very tasty. The avocado and citrus soup was fresh and a highlight of my meal. Definitely will be back.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing dining, always delicious!
We returned to the Elephant Walk where we had another fantastic dinner! The flavors are inventive, interesting and delicious. We have never been disappointed with anything we've ordered here. I like the atmosphere of the Elephant Walk in Cambridge, very pleasant, open space, great staff.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
What great and delicous Food!!
This is the 2nd time at The Elephant Walk. First time was lunch, now this was a birthday dinner with the family. Birthday person is a vegetarian, and that was one of the attractions. The Elephant Walk has a great vegetarian menus, and many of their standard menu items can be prepared Vegan.
The only negative on this evening was our waitress. When my daughter ordered one of the main dishes, but vegan, the waitress proceeded to tell her that it came with fish. She clearly did not understand the vegan options and quite frankly made my daughter a bit uncomfortable. When the appetizers and when the main meals were brought out, the waitress had forgotten who had ordered which ones. Very poor attention to detail by the waitress.
8/28/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great and unique restaurant
The food here was amazing and really unique. Each dish had unique flavors that made you want to savor every bite. The cocktails and appetizers are great. Definitely a hit!
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Cambridge much better than Waltham
I much prefer this Elephant Walk in Cambridge to the one in Waltham. Seats are more comfortable, it's quieter, & the food seems better to me. It also seemed as if the choices were greater. Excellent food! I was impressed that they let us use our group on along with the special reduced price multi-course meals since it was Restaurant Week! That's good PR! I'll be sure to return.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Interesting menu options
We enjoyed the variety of the menu options. They've done an excellent job catering to those with special diets (e.g. gluten-free, vegetarian). My one complaint is the portions could've been a bit bigger. Perhaps I arrived too hungry, because my husband said he was full after the meal! But I wish there was a bit more on each plate.
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
not fusion, just a fabulous blend
great food, friendly and attentive service, excellent wines, all in all just a great restaurant.
Not a fusion, just a fabulous blend of French and Cambodian cuisine...

my second visit to this restaurant
my second visit to this restaurant - this time with friends instead of colleagues. We had a delicious dinner.

I come to The elephant Walk again and again - and love it every time
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Impressive as always.
Special and delicious food as always! Beautiful, light, bursting with flavor. Artfully prepared.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
It's really hard to serve a group of 14 people, but the servers did a fantastic job of bringing fresh, tasty, hot food, to everyone at the same time, for each course. We ate upstairs, on the ground floor, because I really don't love the subterranean, no-windows, room often used for big groups at this location.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed the very nice atmosphere. Menu was uniqued to tge area - food was excellent.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
A unique menu of great food
Great menu, fusion of Cambodian and French cusine, varied and reasonably priced wine list. Would happily be a regular customer at this restaurant (also has a location on the Boston side of the river). Very friendly, attentive wait staff.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
The dining experience at the Elephant Walk is always a pleasure. The dishes of either their Cambodian or French cuisine are perfectly balanced. I cannot express enough in words how well trained the chef staff must be to execute consistently perfect dishes.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
ele walk! is amazinnnggg!
This is my favorite restaurant! I am a vegan and its always hard to find vegan restaurants and this place has so many vegan options and itsss sooo delicious!!!!! I got this dish with rice noodles and it was fabulous! I get it every time i go there. Also everyone who goes there should get the roulex. Im not sure how to spell it but is a roll and an appetizer. There also amazing! Iv been there a bunch a times and I will continue to goo for a long time!!!!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Have been to both the Fenway
Have been to both the Fenway and Porter Square locations on several occasions and have never been disappointed. Waitstaff seemed a little bit overwhelmed this time (there was a rather boisterous wedding reception downstairs), but we were still served quickly (and accurately). Elephant Walk remains the standard for high-end yet affordable dining in Porter Square.

The real deal.
Truly delicious. The somiah machou soup took me back to Southeast Asia. And the boeuf bourgogne was so flavorful with the wine, mushrooms and onion sauce. We'll be back.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, great atmosphere. Love this restaurant.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
My friend started with the Somlah Machou soup, flavorful and fresh. I had the Rouleaux which is larger serving of spring rolls than you'd get at most places, also delicious. For entree, I had the Boeuf Bourguignon and she had the Crevettes Kep sur Mer, both again delicious and had pretty big portions. Nice place for a great meal with flavorful and well-sized portions. Service was attentive and helpful with the menu.
