    The place was closed and it said on the hours it would be open two more hours. Waste of time driving all the way to a place that’s closed.

    Dinner with my entire family after attending the ballet. The location at Uptown with my primary reason for selecting this restaurant. Another benefit was the noise level is acceptable for an entire family to have a conversation where you can hear each other. Also chose it hoping that the Uptown outdoor mall would be decorated with festive Christmas decorations. It wasn’t which was very disappointing. Our table and reservation was ready when we arrived. Whatever I immediately noticed that the restaurant was understaffed. Our waiter took a little longer than usual to take our drink order. Other than the water, our drinks took a long time to arrive, but they were very good. We all placed our orders along with an appetizer. The portions of the appetizer itself seem a little on the skimpy side. Our food arrived after another long wait but what really got my goat is a table of three got served a good ten minutes before we did. The wait staff was understaffed and our server tried his best. It’s just a sign of the times, I guess.

    It took over an hour to get a chicken lettuce wrap. The excuse was the appetizer station was slammed. Limited menu. One entrée arrived cold even after the long wait. Wont be back.

    waited almost an hour for food, waitress took 20 mins to give a check, very little menu options, not vegan friendly

    Elephant Bar Restaurant - AlbuquerqueResponded on October 8, 2022Hello, I'm am truly apologetic that you waited a long time for your food to arrive. It also sounds like your server could have explained our vegan options better. We have many vegan options that include the impossible burger, vegetable stir fry, tofu, & many vegan salad options. I'd love if you'd give us another chance. I'm personally happy to create a dish specifically for your dietary needs. Hope to see you again soon! Emily, General Manager

    We had a reservation for Monday , got to the restaurant and it was closed. We were not the only one, we counted at least 12 people arriving around the same time . Everyone ended up at the Bravo restaurant which were happy to accommodate us. The on line app. Also indicated that the restaurant was open. We had business meeting, it would have been a disaster looking for another restaurant. Glad that Bravo was just a few steps away .

    Tough night at the Elephant Bar! The restaurant was understaffed and lacking the supplies necessary to prepare all offerings on the menu. The manager on duty had been employed for only 2-3 days and was in way over his head. Our waitress did deduct 15% from our check as well as presenting us a 15% discount card for a future visit. Our experience was overall below average!

    I was disappointed that there was only one choice for gluten free. They wouldn’t even cook a steak and baked potato for me and guarantee it would be gluten free. I ended up with the lemon garlic chicken. It was okay. Just a little dry. I could have used some kind of sauce. One other person at our table ordered the mandarin chicken and ended up sending it back. The food was mushy and had a weird flavor. They brought her another dish and that was okay. The Paloma was delicious though!

    We were a big group so food took a while to come out. But it was pretty much worth the wait. I had the Korean street tacos. Lots of flavor and salsa was great on tacos and chips. The Pub Burger was huge and great.

    The Mongolian beef was over cooked an so sweet I could not eat it. The Foch and Chips was fried too hot and was mushy inside as were the fries. The chicken parmigiana was just plain nasty. We won’t be going back.

    When we walked in I was a little apprehensive. I already checked the cost of the menu, and I thought for the prices charged, it would be a little fancier inside. I was pleasantly surprised! Drinks were delicious! Food was delicious! Four of us were in our party, and only one didn't care for his choice. We will definitely go back.

    We had a delightful evening at the Elephant Bar. We had an early reservation (5:30) and almost had the place to ourselves. Once we navigated the online menu, the order was taken and food promptly served. Food done to perfection.

    Service and ambiance were great but the food was substandard. I had the crab salad. Greens were fresh very little crab that tasted more like tuna. Martini was excellent. I suggest going for small bites if you’re planning a get together because you will be able to talk with each other.

    Steak was delicious. Turkey burger was meh. They never brought our appetizers. The waiter made it seem like he was doing us a big favour by not charging for the appetizers that never arrived. He said he’d try to get our dessert comped, because he forgot the appetizers, but made sure we only ordered one dessert for the two of us to share.

    Waited for 25 minutes for cocktails with some ridiculous excuse that they couldn’t find a martini glass (?!?) Food was average at best. Ambiance was nice and the restaurant was warm and not too loud. Overall experience was summed up by the apologies from the manager saying they were sorry that our service had been so poor. I will not be returning to this establishment anytime soon.

    We were out celebrating daughters 21st birthday! Food was very good, we had a bad waiter, no refiles on drinks. we waited about 15 minutes after meal was complete for waiter to go to our table. We were going to order desert but waiter was really slow never offered desert, we just decided to ask for bill and called it an end to dinner.

    I used to really enjoy the Elephant Grill. At this visit I though the food was not very good, and it was overpriced. My friend got a vegetable stir fry, and two thirds of the plate was covered with wonton strips. There was a fairly small strip in the middle of the plate that was the stir fry and rice. That was priced at $13.99. I ordered the salmon tempura roll, which used to be delicious. It was okay, but nearly as fresh and flavorful as it used to be. The atmosphere in the restaurant is pleasant, and the servers were good, but they need to improve food quality and price.

    Have to say the appetizer platter was awful! Service was the same. We didn’t even finish our meal and was given the check. Waiter was reminded 3 times I actually came in for the dessert. He laughed and said I’ll get your desert. After 15 minutes he brought it packaged up and it was frozen solid. Nothing like the picture of the mud pie. We did even say the meal was bad and desert was frozen. After paying they had to credit the desert. Very unfortunate it was a bad experience we’re not from here and tried it and was disappointed.

    Our first year here for our Thanksgiving meal, not our last by far. Both the traditional Thanksgiving meal and the Turkey Sandwich were AH-MAY-ZING. Even reheated a couple of days later, the food tasted very good. Excellent service and excellent meal, we will return.
