By far, one of the very best restaurants in all of Scottsdale. The service and food were impeccable and the view is incomparable! I highly recommend Elements at Sanctuary!

Our first time to experience this fantastic dining experience. Could not have been more enjoyable from the valet, hostess, or waiter (Michael), views of Paradise Valley. We are planning on making this destination at the top of our fine dining list.

My wife and I attended here for a little honeymoon after our wedding ceremony. Dinner was delicious, and the service to attend to her gluten restrictions was wonderful.

Fantastic experience. From moment we arrived, everything perfect. Dropped car at door, twenty feet later greeted us by name and table ready. Beautiful window table with great view of mountains and valley. Server Dan outstanding. Menu awesome. Had the beef ginger dumpling appetizer , Korean beef cheek and Sea Bass entrees, PB Bomb dessert. All well prepared and presented. Topping it all off , Chef Beau McMillan of Iron Chef/Food Network and Elements Exec Chef came to our table—very personable and engaging. We were blown away. Really impressive operation and a great evening in a beautiful setting.

The restaurant is a beautiful space. The foie gras appetizer was wonderful. The steak tartare was just sub par and lacked flavor. The waygu beef cheek was rich, delicious and full of flavor. Overall it was a great dining experience

This was a celebration of my 80th birthday with my wife and 3 adult daughters. All I requested ahead of time like a distanced table and a nice view and general COVID precautions were observed. We felt extremely comfortable for our age as well as for our professional daughters. We appreciate the attention given to our request.
Our meals were excellent for all and each of us had something different for entrees. My wife had the special which was striped bass, daughters had the chicken, salmon and sea bass while I had the scallops. All were very satisfied and pleased with their choices and that’s unusual but Elements prepares the food very well and presentation is tops too. For starters we had either the waygu dumplings or the salad which were enjoyable. Wine by the glass was excellent and fairly priced for a restaurant as were the cocktails which 2 daughters enjoyed. The quality of the drinks and food had everyone energized and I took pleasure in seeing how good it was to have my closest family members enjoy each other’s company and the meals, service and ambiance.
The strawberry shortcake was shared with 5 spoons and I really liked the cake and my wife the ice cream.
I’d highly recommend Elements for any special occasion or for just a nice pleasant dinner.
Thank you to the staff for a great evening.

First time I’ve been for Sunday Brunch. The food was as wonderful as ever, though being a brunch menu, the choices were fairly limited for a non breakfast food person.

This was a great restaurant with amazing views of the mountains. Joey provided exceptional service. Everyone in the restaurant was friendly and helpful. Plus, they offered vegan options.

There are many pieces to a perfect dinner. For us we were celebrating an anniversary and this restaurant was extremely romantic, beautiful views everywhere. The food and drinks were fantastic. Our server CJ was a vital part of our experience. I haven’t received service that good in a very long time. We live in Sonoma county CA and have the highest standards for good food and service. CJ, thank you so much for going above and beyond for us. This restaurant is a special spot and I cannot wait to return.

Sommelier(s) - great views - fantastic ambiance- ok menu, maybe lacks some options.. staff is good, just seem to lack the “team” factor. They are attempt be attentive to table but little details don’t get communicated between the members so little patience required.
Wine list is good!
Side dishes are drowned in flavoring and toppings make them so-so. You order broccoli or green beans and your looking for healthy that is negated in too much attempt at flavoring

I do not believe it was worth the hype or the price. The view was beautiful but the pork chop I had was so heavy tasting, between the actual size of the meat and the glaze. There was nothing light besides the bland broccoli placed on top like an after thought. I would have loved a light sauce or a chopped greens instead of the purple potatoes.

Our waiter Gary was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. We enjoyed our Little Leaf cocktail! It was delicious. Gary was kind enough to introduce us to the head bartender CHRISTIAAN ROLLICH. We sat down with him and he signed his book for us. This is a very special place with excellent customer service. The sunset was spectacular! We even witnessed a couple and their proposal. Super romantic! Can’t wait to come back.
