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!
I have gone to this restaurant for years, and unfortunately it seems to be going downhill. It wasn't as clean as it used to be. The menu has changed to being very generic, and it seems quality and freshness have gone away. I ordered a crab louie and it was greens and canned crab - that's it. No eggs, no other salad veggies, and the crab looked like it had been ground up... gray and tasteless. I had to order bread on the side. $25.00! The salad dressing however was good. This was a real dissapointment especially since this used to be my sure-fire go to restaurant for occassions or a guarantee of a good meal when i was in the area. Fortunately the service was good.
Pretty sure the waiter said that a decision had been made to close the restaurant permanently. A lot of staff didn’t show up for work and the staff that was present was understandably lethargic. Our server was excellent even though the rest of the experience was well below par. One of the members of our party never received the food that was actually ordered, because they were out of everything. Several others didn’t receive the correct side dishes for similar reasons. Food was cold and steak was on its way to the charcoal briquette factory.
Poor staff at Arden Elephant Bar on Christmas Day. They were slammed and lots of people were impatient and nasty. Staff did their best to take care of energy one. They were the only place in the area open. That being said, the manager could have handled the situation better by keeping his staff’s spirits up. Ben our server and bartender was great. Overall an uneven experience but outside the norm and Ben made it a nice Christmas despite the challenges. Everyone who worked that day should get a bonus.
Food was good but service was slow.
We shared the lettuce wraps and ordered individual dishes for lunch. I liked the shrimp and salmon noodle soup. My daughter’s Japanese noodles were bland. Son’s Thai chicken salad lacked variety.
The seats had duct tape as it was torn. Water leak from the ceiling with a bucket to catch the water. The carpet stuck to my shoes when walking. DIdnt bring outthe correct food order but once received the food was flavorful
Place was not only worn out , tables, carpet etc , it was also disgustingly filthy dirty. No excuse for the condition of this place - service was ok, food ok, won’t be back
Service very slow
Loved the $12 pick-two lunch option. Would have liked a few more choices, but I was able to stay within my calorie and carb goals. I had the garden salad and chicken tortilla soup, my friend had the French onion soup and a sandwich.
Service was slow. Food presentation horrible. Came for my birthday. Yelp check in had a free dessert.
It has been 10 years or so since I have been to this restaurant. Last time I was here it was packed and when I went recently it was on a Sunday but it was very slow. The carpet was sticky and if you stood too long in one spot you would stick to it. Had a glossy shine where the majority of people walked. For it being slow we didn't get our food for a long time. The server was nice but never refilled the glasses on my side of the table. I used to love this place. I know that a lot of other Elephant Bar's closed down. I wish they would put more effort in the ones that remain open,.. for now. The food was OK. I don't know if I would ever come back here again.
very nice experience. I'd definitely recommend to a friend -- and come again myself. thanks!
Toughest steak I never ate- oh, I tried but it was like chewing shoe leather.
My sister ordered med rare on her ribeye and it came out more medium🥴!
My ribs were good, a few were a little tough!
I have been to E Bars in Henderson Fish Taco had Bay Shrimp and minimal taste; Chicken in the Caesar Salad was over cooked no need to go through the remaining dishes=you get the message. Mentioned it was a birthday occasion; no response. Can’t imagine we will return. Shocking because we hosted 20+ at Burlingame a year or so ago and service & Food was noteworthy!
It was ok and the food was ok but there were nets flying around and a lot of little things that made the experience just ok -
With a lot of new restaurants in town now - just seems kind of antiquated. Loved the chicken cracklings
The menu had changed, prices increased and drinks were not even listed on the menu! The server had to tell us what was available. Favorite drinks (from former menu) are no longer prepared... The menu is BiG and confusing. I wanted fish and ordered Aoi and had no idea it is prepared raw. I asked for the cook to grill it and was told he would prepare a new entree and when it arrived, it was raw. Had I known, I would have ordered a different menu item. Overall, we were not impressed.
The calamari appetizer was sparse and not very tasty, however the shrimp and the potato skins were great (we shared a 3 selection appetizer plate). The server was VERY slow in refilling our drinks!
WE had an excellent waiter and service was outstanding. Food was exceptional.
Group of seven. Had a reservation but had to wait for them to set up a table. Food great. Server great!. Especially appreciated the large menu items available at lunch. No one left hungry.
It was fun had a good date waiter was friendly had a great time always do when I go there
Waitress was super nice
Server Steve was very helpful and patient. The appetizers happy hour prices not bad.
Our server was awesome. Only issue we had was our meals came out before our appetizers but they kept them in back until we were ready. Place was very quiet.
Had an early reservation before an event at cal-expo. I believe I must have confused staff with the number in my party and the time of the reservation because I was repeatedly asked how many of us. We took a scenic tour of an empty restaurant to find the correct booth. Service was slow, and the food was average at best. A request for normal lemonade resulted in a lemon drop. I think this is a great place for happy hour, as their drinks were the best part. However there was no consistency with the alcohol or flavor of the drinks ordered. If your looking to spend money on restaurant roulette this is your place!
The restaurant was closed. They ruined my date. Never back again here.
They were closed due to electric problems. Thus it was hard to write a review.
Celebrating my goddaughters birthday
All good ✅
Great service! Very friendly staff.
I love the lamb shanks they serve. It's difficult to find lamb shanks and elephant bar makes the best ever. I highly recommend.
We are from out of town visiting and working
The food and the service was amazing
The mashed potatoes need some work but everything else was awesome
We were seated next to a large party .. it was very loud. Food was not that great...
According to our server, THEY ARE CLOSING THIS RESTAURANT!! Just when we discover a GREAT FAMILY restaurant, close to home, with a varied menu ! EVERY TYPE OF FOOD IS THERE ! Everyone can choose just EXACTLY what they want to eat....From Pasta to Pizza, Steak, Sea Food, light salads, hearty soups ! The desserts are FABULOUS! Please don’t close this place, it’s soo hard to find a restaurant like this...it’s why we don’t eat out a lot ! We will be eating there twice a week, until they close, as it’s too hot to cook...
We had a great time! Our server was excellent! We will definitely return very soon.
If it wasn’t for our waiter we would have left! We ordered their top sirloin and it was all fat and chewy and couldn’t even cut it!!
The lamb shanks, I was told was very good. The chicken citrus salad could have had the dressing on the whole salad and pistachios were hard to find! The chicken was not flavorful at all and had a strange texture. I love this place, but they need to get consistent food quality!
Kitchen was backed so all our meals didn't come out at the same time, but other that was a good experience, server was great!
Food could be more creative. Not really anything special. Got order wrong.
Great dinner. Everything was wonderful. Great food and service. We will be coming back soon.
Great food, great atmosphere and great happy hour bar.
The server was fantastic. The food was so delicious, too. I had chicken parmeson.
I was on a business trip, had never been to this chain, but I would go again.
