Diner Reviews
  • "Having eaten at element several times while in Scottsdale on business, my wife and I chose to stay at the resort for our anniversary. Dinner was extraordinary as usual. The menu is not overlong - and the choices are exciting variations of beef, poultry, fish, etc - in other words, exotic in their preparation and presentation but familiar. It is difficult to choose but always rewarding. Chef is a genius, the sommelier is charasmatic and very helpful. Highly recommended."

  • "I forgot what a great experience it is dining at Elements Restaurant - the menu, the ambiance, and the service are all outstanding. I only wish it was closer to where I live. We were celebrating a Birthday and they surprised us with was a delicious chocolate cake with ice cream. We especially loved sitting outdoors, enjoying the view, and listening to the music after dining."

  • "Impeccable food, fantastic service, incredible views. I just can't say enough about this experience. And it was a complete experience. The waitress was extremely knowledgeable about every item on the menu and made sure that we were going to be very happy with our dining choices. Even after the meal Beau Mac came out and sat with us and had a great chat with us. Amazing experience!! Can't wait to come back"

  • "Restaurant is stunning with views of the Camelback Mountains and Foothills. Go at Dusk and watch the sun fall down the mountains with beautiful orange and yellow colors. Food and service were unbelievablely good and attentive! The wine list is extensive and has a lot of varietals... good for any wine enthusiast. Head over to the Jade lounge afterwards for live music and a fun vibe!"

  • "My husband and I recently moved to the area and are big foodies. The food, the service and the atmosphere were fantastic. I highly recommend it. The foie gras appetizer and kale salad were out of this world. The main dishes did not disappoint either. Will definitely be back."

  • "My husband and I took my mother and grandmother to dinner at Elements. It was so beautiful there, you did not mind it was 110 degrees! We had a reservation at 7 pm, just in time to walk around and take pictures with the beautiful scenery and watch the sunset! The food and service were fabulous!"

  • "Thank you for a great experience! We came from the UK for a holiday and had previously attended a wedding at sanctuary 2 years ago and wanted to come back! We was so jetlagged we missed our reservation but the staff we so kind and changed our table booking to a later time, they were so welcoming. I had also mentioned it was my partners birthday in the reservation email ( which was months before) i was very pleased when the staff brought out a desert with candle for him! It was a total suprise as i had forgotten myself that i had mentioned it! If we ever visit Pheonix again we will definately come back for a meal and cocktails!"

  • "My boyfriend called the restaurant ahead of our reservation to let them know he would be proposing to me that night. The waiter, GM, & hostess all knew what was going to happen except for ME! :) They went above and beyond to make our night special. We were seated in THE BEST seat in the whole restaurant and were treated like royality. The food was exceptional as always. You just can't get a bad meal at Elements. The only negative thing that happened was we had quite a bit of left over food that we asked to be boxed up, but never got it back and when we were leaving and realized it, we couldn't find our waiter anywhere to ask about the missing food. But, with the excitement of the evening and because it was getting late, we just left."

    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "We had a great time. We were greeted with a robust "happy anniversary" at check in and by our wait staff as well. Greg and David Hernandez provided outstanding table side service. Even though they were busy with other patrons, they made us feel as if we were their only table. The food was presented well and full explanations regarding the items exceeded our expectations."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "World class meal preparation in a world they surely own. All our tasty prepared dishes were so creative. Exceptional service provided by Anthony who open the menu to please all of us all evening long. The decor and restaurant architecture made for a wonderful evening for all of us."

  • "I enjoyed every second of this amazing restaurant. Thank you for the lovely experience."

  • "Food was imaginative and delicious. Service lagged on occasion. View is lovely. The noise level was incredibly loud. The acoustics of the restaurant combined with 2 tables (1 of 6 people, 1 of 8) that were extremely loud ruined any hope for a romantic dinner."

  • "We sucked up the pricey car fare from the south side of Phoenix to get to sanctuary. It was well worth the drive!!! One dish was more flavorful than the other, the views and sunset was beautiful, and the servce was attentive. I've already told several people elements was a "must try" when out in the Scottsdale area"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "We won. First, the view is outstanding. Camelback mountain at sunset is wonderful. It alone is worth the price of admission. Then there was the service, from the minute we walked in we were treated exceptionally well. Our waiter was outstanding (Ron, I believe). He had a personality and even got my Underhill joke. He was helpful on the selection of dinner and the specials. And the food was perfect. The calamari made my day and the main courses were incredible. Make a reservation, get a sunset spot and enjoy."

  • "Loved to see the sun set and the people were really friendly. My group my very much satisfied with the food and service."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Food GREAT. Atmosphere so dark could not see food or those across table. Waiter told it was my son's birthday (29). EVERY time he came to table wished him a "Happy Birthday"....literally over 30 times! Became uncomfortable."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "The food is bold and innovative - the ingredients are fresh and creatively prepared - - the setting is part way up Camelback Mountain and the views are a wonderful compliment to the food. The dishes are prepared very carefully and are delivered to your table far too pretty to eat (bring your camera!) - but, eat them anyway, they are delicious. Try the Thai Chicken Salad - the flavors are bold and amazing - truly one of the best chicken salads I've had. If you dine there for lunch on a Sunday you have your choice of breakfast or lunch items - the omelets are wonderful and perfectly prepared. On Sunday each table received a complimentary order of their cinnamon buns - I was ready to move in for a long-term stay! Bring a good appetite!"

  • "We had a wonderful mean. The service was great and so was the view. I just feel that it is slightly overpriced."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Good food, very pretty scenery and service was excellent. Compared to the food, though, drinks were outrageously expensive."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "What a welcome relief when a reataurant is as good as it's high reviews, but when it exceeds them, that is very special. The element is a very special find and it will not disappoint. It's breathtaking veiws coupled with one of their many signature cocktails is the perfect start to a guaranteed delectable evening. Everythimg, from their fusion of flavors, exceptional presentations, and knowledgable wine pairings makes for a dining experience that will be hard to rival. Request the private booths for special intimate dining with unmatched desert beauty views!"

  • "we called three weeks prior to date to request window table. called the day before and the day of for the window table. when we got there they did not have a window table reserved for us so we had to wait until they could accommodate us. my family called to make arrangements for a birthday cake which was supposed to be a surprise. they called my phone to verify the cake. so much for the surprise. it was not a relaxing meal as the wait staff was tense since they probably had us branded for expecting them to honor our requests. I guess I was expecting more from a high end restaurant. we probably wont go back."

  • "I am never disappointed dining at elements. I loved that our fantastic waiter gave thoughtful recommendations that were delicious and was patient as we had numerous courses for our anniversary dinner."

  • "I took my girlfriend here to propose. Told the restaurant ahead of time so they could have a red rose waiting at the table when we arrived. They seated us in a very private booth with a great view. The service was excellent along with the food. The whole staff was very attentive and congratulated us when dinner was over and brought us a nice dessert. Went next door to the bar and had an after dinner drink out on the patio alone with my fiancé. The whole night was very romantic and special. We are both from out of town and they made the whole night very special."

  • "This was our first time here. View is amazing. Saw the sunset and then great night views. Food was everything we had hoped for. Our waiter, Anthony, was great. Very knowledgeable, personable, and just the right amount of attention. Would go back again."

  • "My wife and I had a great time at elements at Sanctuary. The food is creative, perfectly executed and exciting. We spent 4 nights in Scottsdale and ate at four excellent restaurants, but elements was easily the star of the week. The 50% sale on bottles of wine was much appreciated."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "It had been a couple years since I had last eaten at Elements and after one bite I could have slapped myself for waiting so long to return. Chef MacMillan still presents top notch food at reasonable prices. The setting can't be beat. Ask for a table that faces Camelback mountain. Servers are attentive but not hovering. Menu has something for everyone. The Fiery Calamari appetizer is flash fried so you taste the calamari not the coating. They add a twist to the Iceberg wedge by adding pickled onion and peanuts and replacing bacon with pancetta. Scallops were nice and light. Flavors in the pork chop were sweet and spicy. I could have done with a few less bitter orange rind. Portions are generous so you can enjoy leftovers. Don't skip dessert"
