    First time here. We were excited but then truly disappoint and experience was ruined when we ordered the green curry hot pot. There was no green curry in the dish!! We had to ask the waiter about the curry. He instead tried to explain that it was a light curry drizzle and it’s not like any other dish. Instead of taking it back and bringing a new dish that was properly prepared he insisted that he ask the chef. After half the meal was over he he decided to bring the curry that was suppose to be in the dish and we had to add it ourselves. Truly disappointed for an establishment such as this. Nor did credit us/not charge us for a dish that was not made properly as described on the menu. Still charged us on the final bill. Upsetting.

    My 3rd time and the experience was as good as it gets. The food was not good it was absolutely spectacular. Word advise is to show up an hour a head of time and get drinks in the bar makes for a relaxing transition over into the dinning room. Great Date night destination!

    The food was bland in my opinion and that is my only critique. I am from the Midwest and I’m used to more flavorful dishes when fine dining. I spent 240 bucks just to not enjoy the food really at all. I had the 8 oz filet and my wife had the salmon. Other than that the views are gorgeous and the service was excellent

    We reserved table 12 for just two people. The experience was amazing. We had a custom menu with adventurous wine pairings. They accommodated a severe food allergy with confidence and without compromising the meal. It was a challenge for two people to eat enough and drink enough to justify the minimum but the night was unforgettable. We requested engagement with the staff and they more than delivered. Exceptional!

    We sat at the bar prior to being seated. The bartender and my boyfriend struck up a conversation about the great golf courses around the area. The hostess kindly took our picture outside as the sun was setting. Brad, our server, was excellent and very personable. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was one of a kind. We will return to Elements when we return to Scottsdale. Thank you for a great night.

    We had a wonderful meal for my husband's birthday. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu and what was gluten free. We had the pork chop and the chicken. Both were very tasty and large portions. Views are incredible! We started in the Jade Bar and had very flavorful cocktails as well...

    I ordered the Avocado Toast which is my standard order. I usually love it. This time was a disappointment. My toast was soggy and the avocado less than fresh. It was mushy. It made me wonder if it came from a carton? My daughter had the breakfast fried rice. The rice was good; the bacon was tough. We ordered the monkey bread to share. It was dry and had very little caramel sauce. It is a regular order for us and it was not like it has been in the past. Julio was our waiter and he was outstanding!!! The dining room was lovely as ever. The hostess did try to seat us in a long narrow "airless" lower level just below the main dining room. There were 6 tables open in the main dining room, which by the way, never were filled while we were there. I refused the seating and she then seated us in the dining room. There were only two of us, but that was the case for two other tables, so I was most puzzled by her attempt at the poor seating. She seemed surprised that I wanted to be in the main dining room! BTW we were dressed properly as "ladies who lunch" so that could not have been her reason. Another positive note: Ask about any champagne specials. We got a whole bottle for just slightly over the cost of two glasses! Now I am in a conundrum of whether the positives outweigh the bad food! We wondered if the usually outstanding chef was off duty?

    The view plus the service are always amazing. The sea bass, lobster bisque and heirloom tomatoes with baratta were outstanding. The sesame oil on the wagyu dumplings was a bit bitter. The short ribs was so incredibly tender. To top it off the butter cake they gave us for my wife’s birthday was over the top!
