Appetizers and desserts were amazing. Entrees were very good. Love the Cambodian/French combination of menu items. Excellent service and nice ambiance.
This restaurant was just ok. Not a ton of flavor. After reading many reviews we were hoping for better.
Still a very solid, wonderful choice. The staff here has been a team working together for quite some time and you can tell. They are pleasant, efficient and make everything seem seamless. Our food was also delicious. The rouleaux are always a treat. A must have to start! We also love the duck and polenta, if you are a duck and mushroom fan, I recommend this. All of our entrees were delicious. They are flavorful and fresh while also feeling healthy. We loves the Catfish, the pork and shishitos and the lemongrass chicken special. All were excellent. We will be back many times!
Fun cocktails, delicious and interesting food and wonderful service.
The food was meh. Some items were super salty and others were bland. Our waiter was nice, but the rest of the service was terrible. The person who seated us acted like if we are inconveniencing their schedule. Not sure how this place got so many positive reviews.
Superb! I had forgotten how much I love it there!!! Egg rolls, dumplings, hearts of palm salad and 6 entree’s were fabulous. Everything is light and fresh and such nuanced flavors. Also had yummy desserts. Excellent and friendly waiter! We couldn’t stop texting each other about how unique our time was. Can’t say enough!
Dinged for service because bright the wrong entrees, sent them back, brought one correct and one wrong entree back, brought the correct entree after I started reading the incorrect one. Management was very nice about it and gave us the most delicious free desserts.
An outstanding restaurant!
Don't overlook Elephant Walk. Have never had anything less than an amazing meal and experience.
Excellent service and food! Great for small or large groups.
The staff and food are amazing! Great neighborhood spot!
The food was delicious and about half the menu is gluten free!
Still a reliably fine meal, still the same appealing mix of cuisines.
We went with two Indian vegans who both pronounced their meals ''excellent.'' My wife and I always say after eating here--we don't go that often--we really should come again soon.
Our poor waiter, seemingly alone the Tuesday night we were there, did yeoman work.
This was my first time to the Boston restaurant. I had frequently been to Brookline & Cambridge in the past. I was a little disappointed in the food. My friend ordered the catfish and he said it was just alright. It came with the head and was a lot of skin but little fish. This used to be one of my favorite restaurants. I’ll give it one more try and hopefully it will be better next time
Wonderful food from an under-appreciated cuisine. Also, the best service!
Everything at Elephant Walk was absolutely delicious! My partner and I went here for our anniversary so we were definitely looking to splurge. We ordered the Dumplings Croustillants au Porc Epicé to start and Mee Siem and Khar Saiko Kroeung (boneless short ribs) as our entrées. The Khar Saiko Kroeung was definitely the best! We also ordered Le Péché au Chocolat as a dessert with a scoop of Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla, which was a great way to end the meal. Oh, and for drinks, we had the Tropical Heat and Cambodian Mule. My partner says the Tropical Heat was the best margarita he's ever had, which is saying something! Entrée prices were $21-29 which is a little more on the expensive side in my opinion, but the quality and quantity of food were worth it!! Would definitely come back!
I've been going to the Elephant Walk for years. While I am sad to see they have scaled down to one location and no longer offer my favorite brunch, I am happy to say that the food quality, service and overall experience are still excellent! I hope more people will give it a try and the restaurant can make a big comeback in the coming year!
Amazing food, amazing service!
We liked our meal. Everything was fresh and delicious.
We love Elephant Walk South End. Don and Jason are our two favorite servers. The drinks are amazing, especially the Smoke and Fizz. The food is great, and very dietary/allergen friendly! We are vegan, and they are so mindful of all our needs.
The spring rolls are one of the best apps in all of boston. The combination of warm crispy spring roll, and the cool lettuce you wrap it with is amazing! The main courses are always delicious and beautifully plated!
We hope to become regulars!
We had excellent service, amazing food, fantastic drinks. Ambiance was very pleasing. It was our first time there, but will not be our last. We will be returning soon.
Delicious meal-wonderful flavors and combinations served up in a vibrant and casual environment.
Delicious food. Excellent menu. Great service. Cool atmosphere.
This was our first night out after getting vaccinated and it was a fantastic meal
High top was at the bar is not a desirable location
Have been going to The Elephant Walk for the last 10 years for special occasions. After a pandemic year, they are still the best. Loved being there one more time. Food was superb, ambiance and service awesome and manager just wonderful. Can’t wait to go again!
One of our favorite dining places for twenty years. Go for the spring rolls a real treat!
The food was delicious and would qualify for healthy (lots of veg) but for the cream sauces, etc.
Great food and service! We will be back.
Very nice place where the food and stall are great.
We truly enjoyed dinner at Elephant Walk - I hadn’t been since they moved from their Beacon St location, and had forgotten how lovely the French and Asian flavors blend! Will definitely be back soon!
We had a GREAT dinner here. Don made navigating the menu a breeze for us Vegans. The food was exquisite, especially the mushroom spring rolls, WOW. The drinks were awesome and service was impeccable. Cant wait to come back!
Can’t recall the bartender/servers name but he was amazing. He really made our experience. The food was fantastic.
We had not been to The Elephant Walk since it moved.
So happy we found it again.
Food was great and our waiter was fantastic.
We will be back.
Great food and service as usual!
As always, fabulous food and amazing service.
We came here for Dune Out Boston and are officially hooked. The fish, soups, and cocktails were particularly delicious but everything was amazing. Service was attentive and staff observed all safety protocols. We will definitely be returning!
Lovely all around
One of Boston's finest restaurants decade after decade! SE Asian is my favorite cuisine, so elegant esp. when combined with its French influence, subtle and melding such interesting flavors. The service was knowledgeable, courteous and attentive but not intrusive. Every dish and drink is superb. You can only go right here.
My friend and I went for restaurant week, and it was honestly a disappointing experience. The lettuce wraps were delicious, but the chicken salad was dry and tasted like a chicken salad from the supermarket, minus the mayo. The main dishes were great--we got the boeuf and the catfish. And finally, the chocolate cake was good but the coconut custard was truly awful, it tasted like scrambled eggs with sugar. The cocktails were all-right--I recommend their gin cocktail (first one on the menu) and their vodka and rosemary cocktail.
We went for Dineout Boston and it was wonderful, great food, excellent service, however even though it was for Dine Out Boston I found it was fairly little food for a lot of money.
