We went to the restaurant because it was Arizona's Restaurant Week and enjoyed a 3 course meal. I had mushroom bisque (delicious), shrimp something (nothing really special) and p bombe (chocolate and peanut butter dessert-outstanding). The atmosphere is hard to beat with beautiful views of Camelback and Paradise Valley.

The food was delicious, however, there were only 3 shrimps on my entree- too few - and a dollop of white rice. It should have been at least 5 shrimps, in my opinion.

VIEWS ARE AMAZING - perfect spot for out-of-town guests! We went to the bar for a cocktail before dinner -again, amazing views and a "hip" ambience. Bar was not crowded (it was 5:20pm) and there were 2 bartenders and a cocktail waitress. We ordered 2 Vodka Tonics.....we waited....we waited....we waited it took almost 10 minutes to get our drinks??? Our guests arrived and we went into the dining room. Hostess station was well staffed and they were delightful - quickly seated and gracious. Meal was lovely, our waiter was very helpful when we selected our bottle of wine for dinner and he provided very good service the entire meal. We were celebrating our 22nd Wedding Anniversary and we are so happy we selected Elements for the evening.

We were overall very disappointed in most aspects of our sons birthday lunch. The restaurant is viewed as upscale and a place for special occasions. The staff was not attentive. The food was mediocre at best. The view is fabulous and the decor is very nice.

Took my husband to Elements for his 50th birthday. I’ve been in the past, his first time there. We had a great time and enjoyed our dinner and evening. Menu was a bit limited but everything we had was excellent. It was nice to get away from our “trusted upscale restaurants” we use for special occasions and try something new. The chef is very creative and there’s a little something for everyone. Exploring a new menu and dishes made our evening out more fun, and we weren’t disappointed with anything. We are definitely going back. Tip: look up the sunset time for the day you are going and reserve 30-40 minutes prior to that. Views are really pretty - even on the rainy night we went. Another tip: they have booths that face out towards huge windows with scenery. Probably have to request those special. Food tips: The shrimp cocktail is amazing! So are the steak and short ribs! Add the side of honey vegetables really complemented our entrees nicely. We spit the Farmer’s Market Salad and that was perfect. Very nice place.

Ate at Elements restaurant last night. Service was outstanding. From the complimentary valet to our wait staff, every person we encountered was extremely friendly and helpful. We were celebrating our anniversary and everyone wished us a happy anniversary. The food was super yummy!Portions were large and the presentation was beautiful. Everything was seasoned and cooked to perfection. Great meal and one of the best high end restaurants we have been to in Phoenix. Also, the grounds and view are outstanding - must do at sunset.

Outstanding food experience - everything served was a superb taste experience! Service was generally good, but when we ordered a starter, soup and entree, we specifically asked if each serving would be spaced with appropriate time between serving - and we were assured it would be, but the soup came out while we were still enjoying our starter. This may seem picky, but when considered to be one of the premier restaurant spots, this should never happen. It was disappointing but certainly did not ruin the incredible tastes and seasonings of each serving - truly outstanding!

We were two couples enjoying lunch at Elements. One of our party had a broken ankle was consequently using a knee scooter. The guys at the valet station were super helpful in getting him into the dining room via their golf carts. Excellent service, guys! The food, the service and the ambiance were all excellent. We will be returning.

My husband enjoyed his food. I did not. The shrimp in the shrimp cocktail was some of the toughest I've ever had. Seabass was good but noodles were unimaginative. Service was good. Evening lacked pizzazz we've had other nights at other places.

Gorgeous views, attentive service and outstanding food. I dined with 2 friends, and we were all delighted with our menu choices. One friend had the Cobb Salad and said it was the best she‘d ever had. Other friend had a turkey burger on a pretzel bun, and he loved it. I had the chef’s speciality du jour which consisted of tempura shrimp, thinly sliced steak in a light ginger marinade, served over sticky rice with sauteed shittake mushrooms - all topped with a drizzle of a spicy aioli. It was amazing!

Two us each enjoyed a Brown Derby craft cocktail. Delicious.

This is my 4th time dining at Elements.. Love this place.

I have eaten there a number of times in the best and have always had great service, but this time it was terrible. We told the waitress that we would order wine when dinner came and she never asked us about it again. We had to ask them to put the shades up as the sun went down. We had coffee and they never came back to see if we wanted refills, water refills we had to ask for. The only positive was the food was excellent.
