Very nice place for a quiet business meeting and lunch. Service is fast during mid-day and there is a wide variety of food that should meet the needs of almost anyone. There is a nice bar, as well. Also good for evening happy hour. Food is good, but nothing exceptional. It is a chain restaurant, but it is done very... More

So disappointed and sad to find this restaurant in the main downtown area of Fremont is now closed. The food was always really good and the drinks are great as well. Unfortunately I will need to travel 10 miles north to be able to dine at Elephant Bar. My favorite dishes include lettuce wraps, and the jambalaya.

I have regularly eaten at the Elephant Bar in Denver. Matter of fact it's one of my favorite places to eat. The food, atmosphere, and service in the Fremont location was rather lacking. The salmon I ordered was dried out and the appetizers were average, nothing special. Probably won't return here because the food is not worth the cost.

The ambiance of this place is probably the only great thing about it. Feels like you have entered a jungle but with a tiki bar of course. Usually dinner is pretty busy and also loud so this is not a place to go if your thinking romantic. Food is ok nothing special.

Typical Corp food, nothing special stands out here.. I don't go for the food. Fancy drinks! Need to train their young waiters, nothing I hate worst is some teenager who doesn't know a thing about table settings making sure there's enough napkins or that the salt n pepper is filled. Otherwise not bad to go out to town here with... More

I've been there couple of times at both bar and dinner areas. I liked food and staff. Bar area was usually a bit too noisy on my taste. I'd say it is one of the best places to have dinner in Fremont. Bar area is ok to have a quick meal and few drinks with a friend.

The restaurant has separate areas : bar -- pub style and dining area. Wide choice of cocktails and spirits, beers. Good food and quick service too. Hope to visit again.

Had Met a friend while I was visiting here in California. I had the grilled ham Turkey triple club sandwich and a side salad. The service was friendly and quick, even though we were the first customers of the day. Enjoyed my lunch and will return.

Used to be good, the food and the portions, it was a place to hang, live atmosphere and great bar scene. Recently the food is not as great tasting, the menu is confusing with so many different fusion cuisines, need to narrow it down no concentrate and deliver great taste in every menu item, not just offer page after page...
