We had a great experience. They accommodated us with a table of our choosing. Great view of the mountains. Crispy chicken thighs for brunch is a must! Very nice waiter.

We were in Scottsdale for a babymoon, and elements at Sanctuary Camelback Mountain was a *great* way to wrap up our trip. The view is amazing, no matter where you're seated, but we happened to have a booth facing the mountainscape. I would highly recommend making sure your reservation is early enough in the evening that you can snap a few photos before the sun goes down, especially if you aren't able to return regularly. Our waiter, Cooper, was friendly and very well educated on the menu and cocktail menu (which my husband enjoyed his recommendations thoroughly). He even suggested an off-menu "mocktail" for myself, which was a great surprise/treat. We started with the Fiery Calamari, which had a nice light breading on it, although we would not have called it "fiery" (although being Texans means we have a higher heat tolerance). I ordered the Lobster Carbonara, which was delicious. Honestly, it's the kind of entree that could've been split between the two of us because it was so rich, so keep that in mind. My husband got the Maple Leaf Farm's Duck and he especially enjoyed the leg portion of the entree. We were too stuffed for desert, but Cooper brought by some freshly baked mini-cookies; I believe they were some version of chocolate chip with sea salt on them and it was the perfect sweet bite to end the meal. We will definitely return her on our next trip to Scottsdale.

All of the staff were wonderful! They paid so much attention to detail and were so gracious and friendly that it felt like we were having lunch with friends instead of being in a regular restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious and looked gorgeous. I could tell there was a lot of thought put into each dish because the flavors were so wonderfully balanced. And the view was gorgeous and so enjoyable because it was one of our rare cool Arizona days. I want to say that Casandra, who was our server, was especially friendly and thoughtful.

It was our Anniversary as well as Valentine's Day. Our waiter Dan was very knowledgeable. Everything I had was wonderful. I was just unable to eat it all. I did bring Chilean sea bass home.
For the two of us it was $350.00 with drinks and tip.
My only criticism would be to have smaller portions for those of us who can't eat a whole lot. Half the size and price would be great.

Wouldn’t know there was lobster in the noodle dish. Could have been spam-& for $55. Way too expensive for the quality of food. Very limited menu!

Wow! From the view to the food to the service, this was one of the best dining experiences my wife and I can remember! Our server, Mike, made the experience exceptional by guiding us through the menu. And the manager, Rachel, gave us her undivided attention! The service was fantastic, exceeded only by the food.

We so enjoyed our first visit. Our dinners (one Salmon, one Tuna, with appetizer of Oysters Rockefeller) were incredible. Our seating was special, view spectacular... Service was not over done, which we appreciated SO MUCH.
We'll be back.

Loved the meal and most of the experience. However, the server was condescending to our son letting him know he could order "mock tails" -on a few occasions-as he did not look old enough to drink.

We have dined at Elements on 5 occasions. This was the only time I was extremely disappointed. The ambience great. The service was good. The food was a disappointment this time. I ordered the ribeye steak special. The presentation was not what a restaurant of this caliber should have been. The steak was more medium than medium rare. My husband ordered the swordfish was over cooked My son ordered the salmon. The portion was very small.

This restaurant has always been a place where we like to celebrate special occasions. We are not sure we will return to dine . It is relatively pricey but, we have always enjoyed our dining experience at Elements except this time

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Phoenix/Scottsdale. Unfortunately, our service was way under expectations. We were seated in the main dining room for 20 minutes for the waiter, whom did not apologize for leaving us sit there (even asking other waiters and service providers to please find our waiter). He then took our cocktail order and wanted to get the appetizers going. Ten minutes later, we had appetizers but no drinks. I then went to the hostess stand and ask that the manager visit our table. He can by in another 10 minutes, just after we got our drinks. He graciously took care of our round of drinks and the waiter was then a little more attentive. Given that we felt like he wanted to flip our table quickly, we did not order the main course until after we were finished with drinks and appetizers. The poor service ruined the evening.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Elements @ Sanctuary. The service was outstanding and the view was breathtaking. The food was scrumptious! We would recommend Elements for a lovely evening and special occasion, especially at sunset!

The view from our table was absolutely beautiful. The service started out very attentive, and our first course (the bisque) was outstanding. As an appetizer, we all shared an order of the Lobster Carbonara. It arrived at the table with no sharing plates and no serving utensils, despite our request to share. We had to flag down a food runner to ask for these things. The carbonara was, in our opinion, inedible. It had the texture of paste mixed with pasta. We found the flavor profile to be predominantly salty with a strange sweet aftertaste. We couldn't taste the lobster at all, and none of us could finish even a single forkful. It's hard to believe that's the way the dish was meant to be served, but my guests wanted to stay silent, and nobody ever asked us how we enjoyed the food (or seemed to notice that the dish went almost completely untouched). I had the chicken, which was browned beautifully, but a little dry. My dining companions did not enjoy their meals, citing flavor profiles that were either too salt-forward to too sweet. The dessert courses we ordered were fantastic, so at least the meal ended on a nice note. Overall, Elements did not deliver a consistent level of service or food that we'd expected from a restaurant in its class, but everyone loved the view and the desserts. There are so many wonderful restaurants close to Elements, that I simply cannot recommend it.
