Very nice deal for the money – I don't what the first guy was talking about, I have had lunch and dinner their I would guess a hundred times and I can't remember ever having the problems he went to such great lenghts to discribe.
your at casual dinning not the Plaza 111
comically bad service – I haven't been back to Elephant Bar in a year or so. I've been there 3 times and had some of the worst service in my life. The last time I went there, I took my parents and girlfriend just to show them how bad the service was. It 'exceeded' my expectations. We sat there for a good 20 minutes before we were even greeted. And that was a manager that we waved over. Our drinks got to our table about 15 minutes later, brought by our waiter, who made stupid little jokes throughout our service. The food didn't come out as ordered. They forgot our side salads. When they were brought out (after we had our entrees) they had the dressing on them. Not on the side, like we requested. We always had empty glasses throughout the night (and we're not the kind of people who down their beverages like Forrest Gump and his Dr. Peppers. We will usually ask for one refill) The actual food was very bland and the chicken dinner I ordered wasn't even the right chicken dish. I ate it anyways. I wasn't about to bark up that tree. While the last time I went to Elephant Bar was by far the worse experience I've had there, the 2 previous times were still some of the worst restaurant experiences I've ever had and I, honest to God, am usually always pleased when I go out to eat. The Elephant Bar was so terrible, I have to get the word out. If you're not too hungry and looking for a good laugh, then I would highly recommend it!
Best atmosphere and HUGE selection of food – I Absolutely love going to this restaurant. It has amazing choices from appetizers (try the sushi tuna) or salads (every one is amazing even for dinner), and entrees. Plus the floors and chairs are covered in a unique design of leopard and wild elephant design. This is a great restaurant for a business lunch, family dinner, or even a date night. I would recommend this to all of my friends!
Great Variety – My husband and I love the food. To try: the appetizer sampler. If it is nice, sit outside, as the noise inside is annoying and makes conversation difficult. Save room for desert, or even go sometime just for desert--it's worth it!
LOUD room, so-so food – The kitchen is open to the dining room which is open to the bar, and the noise is almost unbearable. Clanking and clattering from the cooks, piped-in psuedo-African muzak, with some harmonica drifting in from the bar, and you can't hear the person across the table. The food all tasted like it was overseasoned from the same big shaker of ginger and whatever else was in there. We were very excited to try this place, and were very disappointed in almost every way possible.
