Went on a last minute dinner date with my girls and was kind of surprised to be able to book at 7:45 for a table at 8:15. Experted the restaurant to be more busy considering the group of restaurants belongs to.... but anyhow, happy to get seat on such a short notice. The food was great, the Thai Basil Chicken... More

Thanks for stopping by, and we're glad we could seat you on short notice! Our dishes generally go out as they are ready, as they're meant to be shared with the table, and we do try to give some breathing room in between. We'll definitely take your feedback to our kitchen staff, though, and let them know that some of... More

You do need reservations for dinner because it's a popular restaurant, but we have been there a couple of times for lunch and it wasn't all that crowded. I always tell people that it's Asian-fusion because it has foods from more than just one Asian country and you can have a variety of tastes. Everything I have ordered has been... More

We had a birthday celebration at Elephant Grill. We needed reservations because we planned to eat at 8.30 PM. The place was full. The service was the best I have received in Panama. Our server spoke English fluently - and even though we all speak convesational Spanish it made ordering and find out about dishes much easier. Often at restaurants... More

Elephant Grill is another restaurant in the stable of the owners of The Market and La Posta and as such, we went with certain expectations. As usual, some of those expectations were met and some werent. I visited the restaurant for the first time for a ladies' lunch. We had a reservation but it was probably not necessary for lunchtime...

Pretty good mix of different asian foods. Especially the starters are good. The phad thai could have been a little bit more spicy. Nice ambiance and fast service.

I took my wife to the Elephant Grill last Saturday for her birthday. You need a reservation. When we arrived at 7.30pm the place was already quite packed. The menu is nice. Not too big, not too small. Nice choices for everyone. The wine selection is good and the bottle of Bordeaux was reasonably priced at $25. The pan seared... More

My wife & I went to this restaurant last night with friends - another couple. We arrived at about 7 PM and we were able to get a table without having reservations. However, if you want to dine any later - YOU MUST HAVE RESERVATIONS! - Starting at about 8 PM the Elephant Grill was absolutely packed! This restaurant is... More

I went to the elephant Grill, a new Asian joint set up by a successfull group ( MArket, La Posta, La Chesa, all top notch in their own segment) in Panama with the hope of getting a true Pan Asian experience as said in their brochures. After 30 minutes waiting to be attended, my wife and I started to think... More

Get the spicy pork edamame, best I have ever had! This was a great restaurant, the diversity and service was amazing. Some fantastic dishes, and some which were good! Not as great as some of the other HBG chain (La Chesa, La Posta) but better than 99% of all the other restaurants in Panama. Would go here above any which... More
