The dining experience here is always top notch as a rule. One of our entrees was not up to par and we were not charged, so no further concerns there. The soup and dessert were excellent, as was the other entree. The ambiance is awesome as are the views and they seated us at a terrific table.

The food did not meet our expectations, but the view was a great distraction. The staff were all very kind and accommodating. The fiery calamari was great (not “fiery” at all), but the two wash chicken was subpar. A bit over cooked/dry, although a large dish. My husband did have the filet one night for room service and it was wonderful. He hated he didn’t have it for our dining experience. The dessert was beautifully presented. We had the PB bombe and the cheesecake. The goat cheesecake was wonderful, but I wouldn’t order the Pb bombe again. Overall nice experience but not comparable to our other dining experiences in the area.

Food was good but in our recent tour of resort dining it missed the mark. The calamari to start was great and the butternut soup was quite good as well. From there the entrees were a disappointment as the NY Strip has to much of a cheese topping and the desert was a bust. You should call a desert strawberry shortcake if there is no shortcake.

Spectacular. From the views, the service, food and wine, all top notch. One of our favorite dinners in the valley. Steven and the staff were great, the food was delicious and we couldn't believe the value wine prices! An amazing night celebrating a birthday with our adult son!

A lovely lunch with friends up for the day from Tucson. No better setting than the Elements deck with spectacular views ! Between the gentle warm breeze and the pool setting below, we felt like we were transported to Hawaii! The vibe is always right here at the Sanctuary!
Our waitress was both attentive and personable. Our lunches were delicious and well portioned. Our thoughtful waitress recommended a fabulous dessert which featured a peanut butter bomb! Incredible! I would go back just for that dessert! Highly recommend!

Actually a very disappointing dinner on many levels. Despite making a dinner reservation 5 weeks in advance and requesting a cake, champagne toast to be ready and outdoor seating as the guest of honor and husband was 65+, the restaurant and its staff fell short on each occasion. Food had to be sent back, the cake never materialized; we were offered a ‘sampler’ with dark brown writing on a black slab which you couldn’t see, no taste to the ‘sampler’, entree had to be sent back, name spelled wrong, miso salmon was drowning in sticky sauce, salmon overcooked despite asking for rare, skinny end portion of fish...overall the lack of attention to detail and marginal tasting food made it a lackluster experience. Very disappointed.

We were seated in a room that felt like a banquet room (off of the main dining area where we are normally seated). It was not the perfect experience that we have come to expect from Elements but we still consider it our favorite restaurant in the valley. Perhaps we will need to request the main dining area in the future

It was very easy to make the reservation online. The moment we walked in we were greeted by the hostess and escorted to our table. We were given a booth which was very private and had a beautiful view of the mountain and PV. The service was exceptional from beginning to end. They didn’t rush us with the food and gave us time between the appetizers and the main meal. It may be expensive but very well worth it. My wife and I really enjoyed our evening at Elements
