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.

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!

This place is a must! The service was great! Michael provided us with such a wonderful experience. The food was the best by far of any of the restaurants we have been to while in Scottsdale on vacation. The view is incredible.

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

We dine here frequently and usually have an outstanding experience, sadly the salmon was incredibly sweet,desert like sweet, this time, the high note was the mushroom gruyere cheese tart and of course the pb bomb! The jade bar is out of control with their pricing for call drinks, my wife’s Chopin martini was 20 bucks and to add insult to injury it was a very weak pour! Even during COVID times I still expect value, after all you want us to come back?

Third time lucky on getting our protein cooked to order. Joey our waiter was courteous and knowledgeable, but food servers and beverage attendant left a lot to be desired in both demeanor and knowledge of servings.

Great setting for a date night. Views are stunning. Chef worked some magic with the Oysters, the best Rockefeller I’ve ever had. The lobster bocacini was a huge portion with great subtle flavors. The chicken was another large portion with rich flavors. I was also impressed with the number of options for sparkling wine by the glass.

They changed the brunch menu. And a lot of my favorite brunch items were not there anymore. I got the Salmon bento box and it was just so-so. The chicken piccata was also average honestly, I expected more. The potato chips were good though. Expected it to be pricey. Maybe expand the menu a little bit
