very well maintained restarutant. The menu is seasonal though and there are limited options so I would recommend reading the menu before going to make sure you'll enjoy what they have to offer since it is on the pricey side. Excellent wine selection though. We had the Caymus which never disappoints. filet mignon was missing key flavor elements of that cut. They have some asian twists on american dishes which some were delicious some were not. I don't care for sweet jam on my steak so that was disappointing.

Elements needs to figure out who and what it is. Is it Asian, is it Asian with American?? Who knows. It needs to go back to what it used to be - nice dining with great food.

My wife and I are foodies who cook from scratch 7 days a week and or hit various restaurants. Both my Fillet and my Wife's Chicken were insane salty... we didn't even eat or meals. The Irony is the cookies that came with the bill. ALSO SALTY. The kitchen staff has an apparent love of sodium. I prefer to be able to salt to my own liking. It will be at least another 13 years before we go back that is for sure.

Food and service were excellent. We most appreciated that there were excellent choices for those of us who are vegan as well as to-die-for choices for those of us who were paleo.
Our special requests were handled without fuss.
All in all a great place to catch up with old friends.

Always a beautiful experience. one request is that the restaurant wold specify when there is chilli in a dish. I have an allergic reaction to chilli and no mention of chilli on the menu re the soup so I couldn't eat it. I appreciate not being charged for it.

Even though we ordered drinks & appetizer when we said we were sharing an entree it was obvious by her facial express that she was not happy. We were celebrating 54 years of marriage so you can guess how old we are and we cannot each eat a full meal. The cupcake we got for dessert was sad & tasted frozen. With the prices and beauty of the restaurant I feel you could afford a better complementary dessert. The people serving the food and giving bread were much much better than our waitress. When we were leaving my husband said we should not have tipped her so much she didn't deserve it. We gave her 18%

I hate to say that I do not think, after a second visit in one month, The elements is on top of its game. Both times that I have been there recently, the service was terrible. Yesterday, it took approximately 15 minutes to get water, another 15 to 20 minutes to get a cup of coffee (only delivered after breakfast was already on the table). I do not expect to pay the amount of money that you pay to dine there and receive such crappy service. Pick it up!

Enjoyed an Excellent Sunday Brunch at Elements. Arrived to be greeted by an attentive valet, who took our car promptly. We walked down a flight of stairs to the restaurant, and were seated quickly for our reservation. The Brunch is waitress served, so you do not have to get up from your seat and fight over a buffet. Our party of four enjoyed Beautiful French Toast, Potstickers, and an off the menu omelet. All of the foot was outstanding, as were the specialty drinks ordered from the bar. The waitress service provided by Sarah was great. Truly a wonderful experience that we would recommend to all.

Amazing menu of deliciousness. We sat on the patio which was great for the sunset but was a little dark once the meal arrived. I helped myself to a lit candle from another table, that helped. The food and service was excellent. They produced an amazing coconut lime martini upon my request; it was incredible-they used coconut sorbet yum

The restaurant is in a resort on the side of Camelback mountain and looks really nice. We came in on restaurant week so the menu was much shorter than the regular menu but the selection was good, 2 choices for appetizer, 2 for entrees and 2 for deserts. Among the 4 of us, we tried them all and they were excellent. The Korean short rib was tasty as well as the tempura shrimp but the desserts was outstanding. In all, our outing to Elements was a nice experience.
