We had a most romantic dinner at elements - everything about it was perfect. We had a fabulous table looking out at the remarkable view and it was very private. Our server, Michael, was top notch! The appetizer and main course was a gourmet's delight, but the chocolate dessert was a bit of a let down.
We will definitely go back and enjoy this outstanding restaurant on our next visit to Scottsdale!

This is the best place to eat at in Arizona hands down. I been to many high quality restaurants and this beats them. One the view is beautiful and it is great to bring your significant other too. It’s not crowded. Like mastros you find yourself in a very busy room shoulder to shoulder to people while sitting down. At elements there is nothing on the menu you wouldn’t like! Service is top notch, food and the wine! I love this place.

looking forward to a nice quiet brunch with fantastic views. unfortunately, the order for my wife was not what she ordered. She had ordered the frittata, but was presented an omelet. We alerted the waiter, who admitted the error and offered to get her the correct dish. Her frittata did arrive, but by then I had already finished my entree. The waiter and Manager were very apologetic and offered a courtesy glass of champagne for the error. We enjoyed our entrees and the view, but would not expect this type of error at such a high caliber restaurant, such as Elements.

Fabulous meal! Great wine list and fantastic view. It was a great experience from the valet at the front door until the last bite of desert. It will become a favorite place for special occasions.

There is very little new I can add to any review of Elements. Chef Beau MacMillan, as usual, creates a menu of delights that is a treat to the palate of foodies and normals alike. I thoroughly enjoyed my pecan and maple crusted sea bass. The beet and citrus salad was excellently balanced between sweet/sour/crunchy. The stuffed ravioli was amazing and the butternut squash soup was more bisque than soup. And equally amazing. Service was remarkably attentive, without being annoyingly obsequious. If I had one complaint, it would be I'm not a fan of the stacking of dishes when the servers/helpers clear the table. But, this is strictly an annoyance directed at high end fine dining establishments.

We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary at Elements. Started with 2 martinis, one was old-fashioned-esque and the other was a basil grapefruit something or other. So light and good. Our meal was absolutely delicious (Big Eye Ahi Tartar, Vegan butternut squash soup w/ coconut milk and green curry, fried calamari, and a delicious double bone-in pork chop, and for dessert we had an amazing chocolate peanut butter explosion of deliciousness). Out waiter was very personable and had a great personality. The entire staff was friendly and very attentive.

I went there for our anniversary brunch. When I booked table through opentable, I specifically asked for table with a view (since the place is considered one of 100 best scenic restaurant in US (according to business insider)). I have to admit that I didnt expect them to cater to my request. When we got there we were seated at the view table and greeted by staff that congratulated our anniversary! That is an impressive service! Food were amazing,great portion, great view and extraordinary service!! To top that, at the end of meal, they gave us a gift for our anniversary!!! Highly recommend the place!

The restaurant had a very romantic setting with a private booth filled with a superb ambiance for two that had a window view of the Camelback Mountain foothills illuminated by the illustrious homes resting upon it for the evening.

The food experience was a complete surprise. We wanted to experiment with the menu and everything selected was emblazoned with well balance flavor which was very satisfactory to the palette.

My compliments to Executive Chef Beau MacMillan for creating the perfect meals for the evening.

The server brought a relaxing smile during every visit to our table. He was very knowledgeable of the menu and his recommendations were spot on.

The encounter with staff members were polite and professional from the valet to the Restaurant Manager.

The price was high but, well worth the experience. I truly got what I paid for. I will definitely return for many visits!

Food and view were excellent. We had a booth seat with a great view looking north. Only negatives were the noise level and the booth was close to the door so it was cold as each time the door opened. We will be back.

Just had the X’Mas dinner at the Elements and was disappointed in the menu choices and the food itself. For a restaurant that will charge $100 per person on a fix prie menu the food was a terrible at best. Heard and read a lot about the restaurant but safe to say it was a huge let down.

We enjoyed a wonderful Birthday dinner for my wife on Christmas Eve!
Our 2 adult boys also enjoyed the meal, ambiance and family time!
Hannah at the front desk was wonderful adjusting our reservation. Ron our waiter was gracious and spot on!
Needless to say, we will be back again soon!

Our meals were cooked to perfection....I had the steak special which was incredible! The rest of the family enjoyed the fresh swordfish....we all had a different starter which was fun to see.
The desserts are incredible!

Great job all!
