    Visiting from Chicago and wanted to try a top rated restaurant. The view and the interior were very nice. We sat in the dining room overlooking homes that are built into the mountainside. Excellent, excellent service from our waiter. The food was average and very expensive. I didn't think my smallish Korean short rib with wasabi mashed potatoes was worth $54 dollars. Partner had the $40 lobster pasta dish. Rather dry and again, overpriced. Lobster claw portion was about as big as a thumb and lacked flavor. Drinks were very expensive as well. You're paying for ambiance not necessarily stellar food. Ordered the creme brulee at the end and it was not edible. Overly sweet and way too much fruit with white chocolate pieces on top and a whipped cream, I think. The texture was very liquidy, not a true creme brulee. Our waiter took it off the check for us which was nice. Overall very pricey and I don't think the food lives up to the price point.

    Went there for lunch with a friend. Unfortunately this time food was a bit salty and the waiter was very impatient for us for leave. She did not even ask for whether we like to have dessert. She just brought the bill. Quite disappointing for a venue that is very familiar to me.

    Had a wonderful evening starting with happy hour at the bar until our outdoor reservation. Fabulous drinks and beautiful view! Service was great all around. Ambience was wonderful. Comfy cozy blankets and heaters kept us warm on a chilly night. We requested gluten free bread which was to die for along with the lightly seasoned butter. Apps delicious….highly recommend the squid. Entree (chicken) was a bit dry and lacked flavor. Comparatively to everything else, I believe this was just a one off. We opted not to say anything, but I have no doubt we would’ve been fully taken care of had we mentioned it as the service was impeccable. Brought home the chicken along with leftover Brussels sprouts and turned it into a scrumptious lunch the following day. Wonderful experience. Looking forward to another Elements evening.

    I come here quite often, and the service is impeccable, the food, delicious, and the sommelier is knowledgeable and helpful. The atmosphere is great, the views of the mountain at sunset is spectacular. I love this place that’s why I come here so often. I come for special occasions or just because I have a hankering for their steak.

    Maybe I was not in the correct frame of mind but I had hoped to be impressed with Elements and was not. The food was just ok - I was told by the sever that the small plate of Wagyu beef dumplings was the most popular dish. It was bland and needed some additional seasoning. They may as well have used any ground beef rather wagyu. The entrees were ok but again they seemed to lack something. The service was good and the surroundings were beautiful. I will give Elements another try in the future and hope for better results.

    Absolutely beautiful views and quiet calm ambience to chat and be in a comfortable setting for dinner. We had the Chilean Sea Bass and it was impressive with lions mane mushrooms and bok choy-one of the best preparations we have ever tasted! Also had the cavatelli lobster and it was rich and creamy and generously full of lobster-yum! Great entree to share and get another because the pasta is filling. The pear salad with fennel and grapefruit was delicious and nicely complements as a starter to a hearty entree. Dessert was outstanding with the creamy lemon cheesecake with blueberries-hands down one of the most decadent creations. The raspberry sorbet was so flavorful and definitely outside of the standard sorbet-its a full taste of bursting raspberry! Our server-Scott, was very helpful and informative on the dishes we were contemplating before making that final choice. We are still talking about the wonderful food and experience today-will definitely be back and more frequent.
