    We made a reservation on open table and got the email that said our reservation was accepted with the green check. When we arrived at the restaurant that evening, we found a note on the door saying that they would be closed for one week (no date given to know when the week started) and they were sorry. Do you even have contact with the restaurants you serve? Why were we allowed to think we had a reservation? This was our first and last time to use open table and we will be telling everyone we know about the problem.

    Would give more stars if the restaurant wasn’t closed and Open table notified of the restaurants closure!! This restaurant is closed for remodeling and Open table still took the reservation! Showed up w my date, expecting to eat and was met by locked doors at the Elephant Bar Restaurant. Not cool! Zero stars if i could for both the establishment and Opentable!

    We went at 11:00 when they opened. Menu is very limited now and food is not good. Seems like they ate just warming prepared food. Didn't have any soup to offer although its on the menu and why we went there for my Mom. Don't think this restaurant will be open much longer

    When we arrived for Valentine’s Day dinner there were about 50 people in the waiting area. We had a reservation. The hostess was very rude and ignored us for over 20 minutes. I finally went over to her and asked her to at least take our name so we wouldn’t have to keep standing there. A manager kept walking around saying they were “slammed” but would get everyone seated. After waiting another 30 minutes he informed us that they were running out of food and probably couldn’t feed us. At that point we left. Avoid this restaurant.

    Waited 30min for a table despite having a reservation, then waited almost an hour for the food only to be told they were out of that dish, so we left after being at the restaurant for over an hour and a half without eating and without so much as an apology. Probably the worse experience we’ve had at a restaurant.

    Completely ruined Valentine’s dinner. An hour and a half after being seated, almost two hours after our reservation, we still had not been served…not even an appetizer. Nothing. Was told “the cook called in”…sorry, but it’s not my job to run your restaurant. We got up and left, late for activities already planned for after dinner. I’ll never return, and tell others to avoid this place.

    Host would not sit us away from the door as we requested. The waitress helped and moved us to a table away from the door, the order took over an hour to prepare before we received our meal. The chicken was dry and tough, mashed potatoes were instant potatoes, vegetables were over cooked just a terrible meal. Manager never came over to check on us. Other customers were walking out due to the long times on receiving service or their meal. Manger did not offer any compensation. If not for the waitress who worked hard to help us we would have walked out. Worst meal I have ever had at any restaurant.

    The restaurant is closed on Monday. Our reservation was useless... Why take a reservation for a restaurant that is closed? Probably can recommend Elephant Bar Restaurant - since I haven't eaten there... But I can certainly not recommend OpenTable!!!

    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.

    Elephant Bar Restaurant - AlbuquerqueResponded on October 8, 2022
    Hello, 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.
