We walked to this restaurant from the Hampton. Just a few blocks and felt safe as early in the evening. Staff was friendly and our service was excellent. Food was very good too. Glad we decided to go here instead of taking a cab somewhere...More

The service was good, but my food was dry and overcooked. There are presumably nice views from the waterside, but I was tucked in a corner of the bar next to the restrooms. OK for watching sports on TV, but otherwise not a positive experience.

I had reservations early so didn't have to wait. By the time I left, people were waiting to be seated. I had a bayfront window and it was nice watching the planes fly in and out of San Francisco airport. The salmon was delicious! It...More

Interestingly different menu. My first scratch kitchen. Found two good shareables, the Chicken Lettuce Wraps and Parmesan Crusted green beans. The Winston Churchill and the LI Ice Tea are great signature cocktails.

Your hotel may have a shuttle service to Elephant Bar. We took an Uber. I can't suggest walking because I'm not sure of your hotel location. The address to the restaurant is 1600 Bayshore Hwy. Burlingame CA 94010. Hope this... More
