Wonderful dinner, even though limited menu. We started off with a shrimp appetizer . For dinner, I had chicken with potatoes and my fiancé had steak. Both were amazing. The butterscotch desert was different, however the strawberry desert was pretty good. Beautiful venue to have dinner at and watch the sunset

This was out first visit, food and views all outstanding. I would be giving sweeping 5 stars if it were not for us being seated in a booth style table with no tablecloth. The table felt sticky and by the time we finished appetizers and bread, we had splattered bread crumbs and calamari coating all over the sticky table. No one bothered to clear the crumbs, and our main courses and dessert plates were placed on top of the crumbs. I waited to see if the staff had even seen the highly visible crumbs or thought they were an issue. I would anticipate this in an expensive and highly rated restaurant. Didn't happen. I wanted this to be a nice dinner out with my husband so didn't want to spoil it by being too fussy. And the waiter and his team were attentive except for the crumb issue. We will likely go back again and this time will insist on being seated in a table with tablecloth and a proviso to have as much crumb-free table while dining.

We have had several excellent dinners here but this time the seafood entree was so extremely salty, it was very disappointing.

Nice view, but it was obstructed by the shades until the sun set and the shades were raised. At that time the mountains took on a totally different perspective which was a shame. Food was very good, service was good and the cost was not bad when you combined the view and dining experience.

Beautiful restaurant and the views are incredible. I asked for the LTPO Burger and it was a little disappointing ( cheap cheese slices used ) .Definitely wasn’t worth the price . But I will come back and try something else next time.

Elements is a favorite go-to for a delicious dinner out with a gorgeous view of the sunset! The Hawaiian Ono was amazing and my husbands halibut cheeks special was great too. The Calamari appetizer was fine! I think I’d enjoy it more with a lighter sauce but still very good! The service was excellent too!

Overall was great only comment would be….
We had a toddler with us and he behaved great but the restaurant was almost empty and we were seated next to the only other full table. I bet those people were concerned about being next to a baby.

Love this place, been coming here for some time now. The food is typically some of the best I’ve had in the valley but the Hawaiian fish was disgusting. Would still highly recommend as the environment is incredible and it’s a great place to be.

Fantastic place for lunch with great views. We ate lunch in the main dinning area and had a wonderful view. Our waiter Julio was helpful with drink and menu options. After lunch we walked over to the bar area. More great views but we could not stay for drinks.
