Definitely not the same service that's been expected from Elements. This use to be one of my top restaurants to frequent. Also, I had indicated we were celebrating an anniversary on my reservation which was never acknowledged. My guests & I were thoroughly disappointed. Had to make server reminders multiple times & dessert was sub par. Had a far better experience at a chain restaurant. Only giving 2 stars because of views & meal.

We came during restaurant week and the menu was delicious. I tried a few things that I hadn’t had there before. We sat on the patio and there was an amazing sunset right as we began the meal. It was beautiful and we felt safe even during a pandemic.

Went to Elements during restaurant week. Three course meal for $44, which is a good price for this restaurant. Appetizers were very good and dessert was outstanding. The entree seemed like they were cutting corners. The shrimp entree had baby shrimp, not decent size shrimp and the beef entree had very tough/chewy beef. Otherwise dinner was fine, maybe not as good as I had hoped for. Have been here prior and was always overwhelming impressed.

I love elements, the hostesses were amazing and extremely accommodating to make this date beautiful. The wait staff was courteous and thorough, between the waiter and waitress assistant they covered all their bases I would say they may have checked in a little much but you have to appreciate the consideration. The ambience is always beautiful and the food was great

The bus boys and staff were so nice but our waiter, not so much. Once he found out we were there for restaurant week, his attitude changed then started with little digs. My boyfriend did not notice this until I mentioned it to him. I'm in sales so I picked up on the little comments the waiter would make because I know how many of my co workers would treat customers when they were a different clientele. Just because you go during restaurant week, doesn't mean you don't have money. I gave him a decent tip anyway just in case I misjudged him just like he misjudged us. Everything else was wonderful so that's why I'm recommending you to a friend.

We had a miserable experience starting with an 18 minute wait in the bar to be served a drink...this was at 4:40 and they were not busy.
Once seated at our table, we ordered the octopus appetizer - three 2" pieces of octopus and no pork belly in our serving. A rip off. $23.00 and no pork.
My pork chop was served nearly raw and was more than 1/3 fat. This is unacceptable at your prices. My dish also was to have been served with broccolini but it was missing from the plate.
We brought two first time diners with us who ordered the Restaurant Week menu. They were both disappointed with the shrimp/noodle dish they were served. It was a large dish of noodles and 6-8 rock shrimp. The soup was delicious and the desert was acceptable.
Is this how you want your diners to feel? Ripped off and my call to the manager has not been answered.
The location is superb but the food is far far from acceptable.
Better places to spend our dining dollars.

The atmosphere was incredible. Very beautiful and elegant setting. The style of dress was fit any occasion. It was nice and peaceful. Not a lot of noise or distractions. All the Staff were very kind and friendly. The food was incredible and easy to order. It tasted so amazing and was presented very elegant. This is a great date location or any occasion to revisit.

The food is not worth it. The place is pretty and the views are nice. The people are wonderful and the service was excellent. The ladies room had a terrible mildew smell, and as much as I love dressing up for such an expensive restaurant, the vibe is ruined by people at the resort coming back from massages, working out/sweating and wearing shorts and t-shirts. The food is $$$, so we deserve to have our expectations met. They weren't. The halibut smelled and tasted fishy and the bucatini was drowning in sauce, which overwhelmed the lobster. It just wasn't great at all.

We went to the Elements to celebrate our 4 year anniversary and had a wonderful evening! Our table was in the perfect location facing the mountains. We were able to watch the sun set while having our dessert. Our server was prompt and attentive and the food was to die for! I cannot wait to visit again!

Disappointed in stepping out for brunch, including the fact that the table adjacent to our booth was definitely NOT spaced 6' away from us (more like 4'): overcooked chicken sausage with casing so tough even steak knife made it difficult to cut through; pancakes had salty/bitter flavor of too much baking soda ; overpriced bloody mary ($14) served in small glass which was mostly ice; omelette ranchero with hardly any ranchero sauce; $6 side of bacon had only three smallish pieces which were also overcooked!
Elements is definitely not what I used to enjoy- completely underwhelmed and does not deliver (especially at those prices for breakfast).
