This is a great spot for a date! The view is excellent, food and service is even better! Atmosphere is fairly quiet but perfect with live music coming from the bar area. Quality is 10/10 here, no joke. We were here for restaurant week at this time and the duck had a weird paste with cumin that I felt didn’t go well with duck but that might be personal taste. Had a great bottle of wine, excellent soup and fantastic dessert! Wife had the pannacotta, honey lavender twist, the best yet! Wish we could have stayed the night at Sanctuary! Will definitely be back!!! Always a great value, and just 10 mins away for us!

It was our first trip to Elements. The views are nice, the decor is modern. Service is what makes this place; top notch! The food is very good. The wine list is very good. I think you would not go wrong to grab a reservation at this restaurant.

I took a friend for Mothers day this year, because last year we had a great time at the Sanctuary. Laurie the manger remembered us and we were treated wonderfully by all the staff. Thanks for a great day!!! (alittle pricy though).

The Mother’s Prefix meal was very limited for someone who has gluten allergies and pregnant. My wife had one option in each course, and ended up having tomato soup, lobster Cobb salad, and flourless cake. My wife was craving eggs and asked if they could just prepare an omelette, but we were told a la cart was not available. She ended up only taking a bite of tomato soup and didn’t even touch the cake because it was too early for desert and my wife wanted to limit her intake in caffeine. So in the end it was a total waste of $75. Later I learned the restaurant next door was doing a brunch buffet and this wasn’t even suggested to us. So annoyed.

Overall experience at Elements was good. The wine list had decent options without extreme mark-ups. The view was beautiful and the atmosphere was nice. The food was delicious, although I did order a medium rare filet and it came out more medium well. If you are someone who frequently pursues fine dining, this place is not for you. Like I said, it is good, but not great. I didn't leave feeling that anything was super memorable. The staff did not seem to know that much about a fine dining experience or have much to contribute regarding wine options. I wrote that I wouldn't recommend to a friend because I do think there are so many better fine dining experiences in Scottsdale/Phoenix area. I will admit I am becoming somewhat of a snob regarding fine dining. Worth trying for yourself, but don't have your expectations too high.

To avoid the Mother's Day crowd, I elected to celebrate my day on Saturday morning. The breakfast menu boasts a delightful selection of both sweet and savory items. This time I tried the "mcmuffin" breakfast sandwich; a savory cheddar biscuit with Canadian bacon, fried egg, cheese, arugula and tomato jam. Delicious as it was, it was a tad greasy for me, as it was grilled. There are so many delicious choices on this menu, that next time I will need to order something sweet, too, and just take home what I cannot finish.

There is a spectacular view ideal for sunset dining. I’m not sure how you could find a better one. Great service, very reasonable price. I’ve been there twice for dinner and plan a return with my wife.

Great ambience - the view is amazing - the tiered table set-up is fabulous, giving everyone a view of the mountains. So much to choose from on the menu, it's hard to pick. Generous portions for a fine dining restaurant. Staff is friendly and helpful when describing the menu
A definite re-do!

This was the best meal I’ve had all year. We had the potstickers to start which were very flavorful. For dinner I had the Ravioli and my friend had the sea bass. Both entrees were fantastic. The best part about the meal was the Brussels sprouts. I’ve never tasted any vegetable that tasted as good as they did in the yummy sauce they were served in. Will definitely come back next time I’m in the area.

We had a wonderful experience. The food was well cooked - and very tasty. The service was right up there with the best we've had. It fell apart a little when we were waiting for the bill - but perhaps that's to re-enforce "no hurry". But taking the food, the view, the service - it was a great night out!

Beautiful grounds and view. Food was delicious, service was very thorough. My one gripe (and it was probably a complete accident as opposed to inexperience on our waiter’s part) was that he poured a merlot into my glass which had Pinot in it that I had not yet finished. I know, first world problems... luckily I didn’t really care but I could see someone being prickly about that. Overall an exceptional dining, view, and service experience. Would totally go back, and worth the extra coin.

I do not know where to begin, except to say you must try it all. The BBQ duck, Asian Oysters Rockefeller and the Foie Gras we're life changing dishes and on top of all of that was the breathtaking view. I wish I lived closer, but next time we are in town we will be back. My compliments to the chef and the staff for a true outstanding dining experience.

Elements continues to stand out as a true fine dining experience in a spectacular setting. The prices are high but the food and presentation are top of the line. We ate the duck and the salmon -- both top quality and perfectly prepared.

One of our favorite restaurants turned ordinary! No longer worth the price. Pot stickers were salty, pork belly buns tasteless and calamari average. My salmon was very good but everyone else’s entree was problematic. The irony was we bragged about to our in-laws and had this happen at these prices. Waiter was a wonderful young man that did his very best.

Food was above average, original, they have an amazing selection of wines. But the best was the service by Gary and Carlos. Both so knowledgeable about the menu and the ingredients, attentive but discreet, well manured. The ambience is upscale, nicely dressed and happy people who appreciate good food and wine.
