    80% of resturant's that are similar to Elements miss the mark! Elements hits it out of the park! Great presentation, very friendly staff and the food is delicious! Go there for romantic night out, group lunch or dinner or treat the family. Price is very reasonable for the quality of food and service you will receive here!

    While the major chains are available for the typical stop in, there are precious few really good options to plan a special dinner. Elements has a lot of things right. We were celebrating our 37th wedding anniversary. We chose the 4 course meal for $44 special for two people and were overall impressed with the quality, and especially with the VALUE! The ONLY disappointing aspect of the experience was the lighting, which is much more like a buffet dining room (so bright!) than a romantic venue. The individual lights over the table while beautiful hand blown fixtures, flickered a bit like a strobe light. Investing in a dimmer switch for evening dining, and some new light bulbs for the individual lights would make a HUGE difference.

    Locally owned and managed, Elements is the best in Cache Valley Utah for a finer dining experience. Located on the Logan River, outdoor dining is exceptional. Unfortunately, there is high demand for those tables and space is limited. The only drawback is the Main Street traffic noise, but that seems to be lost in the background after a few minutes. The food is very good, the menu provides many options from a full meal to terrific pizza. The wine list is adequate. The bar area seems to be a hidden secret and always has space for a last minute "drop-in" meal. The service staff are well trained and engaging. Elements is always our pick for a very pleasant evening.

    Dined on 8/9/2014
    I made reservations for 6 PM, as we were attending a performance at 7:30. In Logan, that's usually ample time to get in and out -- even at a "nice" restaurant. We were seated at 6:15, and I'm sure it would have been later if I had not prompted them to seat us. When I told the server we were pressed for time, he suggested we order from the appetizer menu because the kitchen was slow. So while the food & service were good, we did not get the meal we had come from. We ordered soup and salad and called it good. Not only were we disappointed in our meal, but THEY lost out on revenue! My expectation is if I have a reservation for 6 PM, I am seated at 6 PM upon arrival! Also, on a Saturday night you should be well-staffed in the kitchen.

    This restaurant provides a lot of diversity---a nice space, a well rounded menu, and good value. The Four for $44 is a real bargain with a choice of a shared appetizer, salad or soup, entrée, and dessert for two people. The food is nicely prepared and was more than ample for us. We find the service to be a bit on the impersonal side as if the goal is to get people in and out.

    But they won't let you reserve it. Some of their servers are incredibly stupid. Our waiter, who has been working there for years, could not pronounce Mediteranian nor penne. Similar trouble at most Logan places, but this one costs like a place where the staff have brains.

    The whole dining experience was super. We had a group of 10, comments were all the same, great place, food was great. They all want to come back again. The waiter was friendly, able to explain and answer any questions about the meal selections. Drinks were refilled quickly. The food was absolutely great. We had at least five different menu items between the 10 people. Everyone was happy with he quantity and quality of the food. Lots of great comments on the bread, especially the cracker bread. 1st time of having that. The desserts were super, again different types were ordered so we all got to see the different types of desserts. Overall comment: Very satisfying and definitely come back and bring more people.

    Had my folks in town, so we wanted to visit a nice restaurant. Elements came right to mind. Great service, nice presentation, delicious food. Almost TOO eager to get us the desert menu. Now if my Dad only realized that Ahi was seared, and basically raw - he might have done better. Would have loved to walk along the river after, but the air conditioning had everyone subdued, and the outside heat was too much after a day at the beach. My 13 year old daughter has even gone there with her friends, and had a kids meal deal that is reasonable enough allowance can cover it. NOW if she'd just learn chores and clear the table/dishwasher at home!

    I really enjoyed the food and the different and interesting combinations of flavors. It was different and yet very delicious. My biggest complaint was that our server, though very friendly and happy to answer any questions, was not very diligent in keeping our glasses full - particularly our water glasses. Otherwise, I thought it was great, unique, and somewhere I'd definitely go again.

    Dined on 5/10/2014
    I was unaware this was the place for Prom. 2 Proms were going on so this was certainly the wrong place to go for an intimate dinner. Advance reservation ment little as we still had to wait almost an hour. The lobby was crowded as was the approach outside. when we we seated it was right next to the entrance with the Prom crowd, but then there were children manning the front desk. So much for the hoped for pleasant experience. Food was average at best, but I'll allow the kitchen was probably swamped. I may try it again in the future, but I would like to see a little more experienced service staff given the obvious potential of this place, otherwise they will be another might have been.

    I took my wife there for our 10 year anniversary and was a little nervous because I had never been there before. I had called ahead and asked the manager to have a bottle of wine tabelide prior to our arrival. Everything was wonderful. The atmosphere was very nice, the food was amazing (although one or two more scallops would have been nice since it only came with three and was delcious!), and our server (Wendy) was excellent. We look forward to visiting again soon!

    I went there on a date. I love Elements, it's normally a pretty good restaurant and well worth the price. However, this was the first time I went when busy and it was a little different. I'm not sure this is how they normally are when busy or if they were short staffed. But our server seemed flustered and maybe had more tables than he could handle. It took him a while to come to our table. But when there he was pleasant. He rarely did come to our table, mainly to get our order and to drop the food. I had to request for more water. And he never checked on us for the starter dish. The asparagus soup was plain and grainy. I got offered a replacement, but only when my main dish was already in front of me. Still HIGHLY recommended!

    The place was packed. Folks without resets waiting. Everyone in their best Valentine attire. Staff at front desk were very efficient and cordial as they seated customers. Bar service a bit slow due to the press of orders, but good wine at a good price. Our wait person was cheerful and helpful with the menu. Filet was cooked a perfect medium rare, Scallops tasty, Veggies fresh and steamed. On a very busy night the entire experience was relaxing and fun. A very professional operation for sure. Locals warned that the food was expensive, but coming from Atlanta, we thought the prices were very reasonable. Logan is fortunate to have the Elements option.

The dessert on the other hand is just ok. The environment is nice. The staff seems unorganized and at times unprofessional, but are nice overall.

    Traveling with a large horse trailer makes finding a restaurant a bit harder than without. We like to find a restaurant next to a motel that has good open parking. This restaurant is right next to a very comfortable hotel so is perfect. The food is way better than the usual on the road fare. We were very happy. The cocktails are really weak though.
