    One of the three best in CH. Elements, Hawthorn & Wood and Lantern a cut above the rest. Elements may be the best. The food is so innovative, fresh and delicious. Had the Udon noodles with octopus and vegetables. Perfect! The Chong family makes you feel like you are part of their family. Very knowledgeable and well trained servers. Great cocktails and wine too. Elements has stood the test of time and consistently produces new and memorable dining experiences.

    Something seems to have changed at this establishment. The food used to be outstanding and now it is very hit and miss. They put sweet chili sauce on everything, even the pork chop and it does not work. So sad.

    It was what you would expect from this level of dining. Food was very good. Prepared well and presented very well also. The service was slow, but they did communicate and apologize multiple times for the short staff which had bar tenders and managers all hustling food out to make up for the short staff. There were also multiple large parties but the noise level was low. They have gone to great lengths to minimize the noise level with sound proofing installed under tables etc. my only complaint was how cold it was in the restaurant. It was in the uncomfortable side. We would have preferred to sit outside but were told no tables are available. Would visit again.

    Elements meets all the requirements for a fine dining experience. The service is welcoming and timely. In a recent event, we requested a change from an indoor to an outdoor table. The staff graciously agreed and reseated our be party. Initial drinks were offered and service of starters was timely as was presentation of the entree. Elements is a five star restaurant.
