A word from Elements
Elements is a destination restaurant that provides a unique dining experience by bringing fine dining to the rolling hills of Camden, 35 miles east of Downtown Kansas City. We provide the feeling of eating at an exclusive restaurant in the city, but without the hustle and bustle. You are sure to be pleasantly surprised by this intimate restaurant. Sit, enjoy a glass of wine, a four course meal full of flavor, and the natural scenery; that is what Elements is all about!

Join us on Friday or Saturday night for dinner with someone special or good friends. Our menu changes on a regular basis keeping the restaurant as fresh as the ingredients. The pricing featured on the menu for any weekend is inclusive of a four course meal, iced tea or coffee. Beer and wine selection is available. Reservations are required, as seating is limited. Proper dress is required, non-smoking facility, cell phones are to be turned to silent mode while dining, no small children.

    How do you explain Elegant along with "simple"? That is what i think of with regards to Elements. They (the team) do an excellent job in welcoming the guests. Make everyone feel at home. Service with a smile. Food that is superb and a view of the rolling hills of Ray county says it all. I and those who have attended with me will recommend this fine eating establishment to anyone and everyone.

    I was raised in Clay/Ray county, Missouri and never have I witnessed a restaurant as fine as this one. In fact I hate to use the term restaurant. It would be better described as a "resort dining experience. The food was excellent, and although the interior of the facility was not lavish or noteworthy it was exceptionally clean and so quiet you could hear my brother in law's bellow grumble when he got a whiff of the tenderloin of beef. I would highly recommend dining at this location. Although, it is not for the Saturday night crowd, it is more in tune with a "special occasion" with a "special person". I took mine and she was very pleased. I could tell, by the sparkle in her eye. Enjoy!!

    We visited Elements for our anniversary. The food was fresh, flavorful and filling! There was a wonderful blend of flavors where one dish complemented the next. The wait staff was attentive and the owners/chef were friendly. Each were prompt to answer our questions but did not hover. The small space with open kitchen made for an intimate and relaxing environment. The countryside drive provided a perfect prelude to an amazing dining experience. We liked it so much we have already made future reservations with friends.

    It is all good! The view is beautiful, the drive is very scenic, the portions are not to large, not to small just right so I'm not miserable when I'm finished. Menu usually has 3 options so there is something for everyone. We went on seafood night and there was a Cran Dip, Salad with citrus vinaigrette and toasted pecans and a trio of Crab Cake, Chilean Sea Bass and Shrimp served with fresh corn and rice and dessert was chocolate cake with ice cream and fresh Raspberries!

    The atmosphere of dining was relaxing with a peaceful relaxing view. Each course was paired nicely with a Baltimore Bend label wine. The food was excellent and the service was amazing. Certainly a place to go for special occasions or a small group of friends and know that you will be treated like royalty.

    This restaurant is in such a remote location, one cannot help but wonder how it will survive. The food here is good and the setting is rural and quiet. Though the outside doesn't look like much, the inside is nice. I think it is a little overpriced, but you did get four courses and your drink (non-alcoholic) so it is nice for special occasions. The scenery around the restaurant is beautiful.

    We had a very fine meal for our Valentines Day event. It was our first time to the restaurant trying someplace new for the evening. We were welcomed and made to feel very comfortable upon arriving and the service never wavered. The four courses we had for our meals were very good and served with a smile. A check of our satisfaction from the Chef as he took time out to check how we liked our food was a ice touch as well. We will return and take some friends with us to share in the experience.
