View was 11 pout of 10. Service was 6, appetizers (lettuce wraps and calamari) were 9, mains were blah. Had water, glass mostly always empty. View was 11 out of 10. Did I mention the view was fantastic? Will be back, good crash spot when waiting on redeye flights.

The Elephant bar has a good atmosphere. Dining while watching planes take off and land over the bay. I recommend the fish and chips, also the Karl Strauss IPA

We were here last week on a trip to SFO and Napa, We had eaten here before on previous trips. Food is always well prepared, tasty, and maybe too much of it. I had the mahi and it was very good. My wife and daughter had burgers and loved them. Good service and the view is always great. Recommend to... More

Friendly people with good food and nice menu choices. Quite popular. I'll be returning. Much better than airport fare and good wine and beer selection. Locals come here which is a good sign.

This property offers same menu as others in this chain but the one thing they have that makes it a level above is the good view of the bay and the airport landing strip. The server was overwhelmed when busy but another staff stepped in and helped. We enjoyed our meals. Prices are reasonable and it is a short walk... More

Once you have visited one restaurant in this chain, the others are similar and consistent. This is good because when you need a fix for the food,it's there. Nice part, good food and wine list is reasonable priced and I'm a fan of the Chicken. I'll be back

This is the fourth time I have tried this place when in the area for business. Each time the food has been great. The view is amazing and drinks were tasty just not plentiful as staff is on their won pace here. Each time the service has been just poor. After being seated I have waited each time for over...

Elephants always remember. This is not one of those places you want to be an elephant! Nice facility but a sad bar, weary staff, nominal management and not sure what's up in the kitchen. Go across to Burlingame and find something, anything there.

We visited here for lunch and found an interesting menu with choices to meet the taste of most people. We ordered the lunch portions of the Lamb Shank and the Chicken Marsala. Both were very generously sized and appropriately priced. The lamb shank was very tender. Both dishes though seasoned, could have been a little more aggressive in the taste.... More
