The experience at Elements is always amazing. We come here every year for our anniversary and introduce it to our friends when celebrating their anniversary. Everything we ordered was delicious, the drinks were great, and our service was perfect.

Date Night for the Rents. We had the most amazing, relaxed, beautiful evening. Started off at the Jade Bar moved over to elements then back to Jade to end the evening. Truly an exceptional staff. The views are memorizing.

Elements is one of the best restaurants I’ve ever dined at. Exquisite food, incredible service, and the best place to celebrate a birthday! Truly an amazing culinary experience with the best view of Camelback Mountain in Paradise Valley. Going back ASAP!

Fantastic
Enjoyed every moment.
We came in after hiking Camelback Mtn in our hiking shoes and workout clothes. The valet assured us, we are welcomed and our company enjoyed.

Every staff from the moment we stepped out of our car prided the valet was Tru to his words.

We can't wait to spend our next weekend getaway at the Sanctuary.

One of our favorite restaurants in Phx, though this was not our best visit. New menu and kitchen was very slow, and poor communication from waiter. Was told because it was a new menu, there were no specials, though it listed this on the menu (reprint the paper menu minus the specials). Food, however, was excellent as always. Will always return for more.

Music in bar and on patio for dinner too loud and incongruent with higher end venue for resort as this. Hip hop and rap not pleasant for this kind of resort. Management should let the sunset views and colors speak for themselves without trying to be overly hip. Our excellent server agreed with us and mentioned he had tried to say the same to management to no avail. There are many similar choices in this area. We sadly won’t be back.

I really like this restaurant but I could not eat my pork chop. It was smothered with a sweet sauce which made it inedible. There were not any purple yams which were mentioned on the menu.

The restaurant was beautifully decorated with gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains. The wait staff and management were attentive and polite. The menu had just enough variation to provide options but wasn't overwhelming and the drinks were amazing. We went to Elements for a birthday and the staff did a great job of making the occasion memorable. It was a great experience and I would go back again.

Service was slow, only saw our server a couple times but the guy helping him was great. Ordered the foie gras which was over cooked and the rest of the food was bland. This place used to be great but $68 for some bland fish isn’t worth it.

Server was very friendly and attentive. But in top restaurants, the plates are not removed from table while some guests are still eating. It makes the remaining guest who is not finished feel rushed.
The eggs benedict were over-salted, and the sticky bun was dry and not much cinnamon (flavorless). Would not order again. Other items, chicken thigh and huevos rancheros and potatoes were very good.
Table setting was very plain, pale peach tablecloth was not fresh looking or vcrisp and no flowers or decor. Really expected more atmosphere for the money. View is great, but interior is bland. Upon arrival there was a distinct musty smell in the dining room, which was a little off-putting. Implication is that deep cleaning of the area is overdue.
This was a special occasion brunch. Probably would not return, when there are so many other dining options in Scottsdale. Disappointing overall.

We had our anniversary dinner here! Lovely views from the outdoor terrace. We could hear and watch an outdoor wedding reception taking place adjacent to the restaurant on the Sanctuary property, and while a bit disruptive to the tranquil ambiance, it was highly entertaining (and the DJ was great!). Food was very good, the Oysters Rockefeller were delicious - highly recommend.

Best place for a special occasion. Great views from every seat. The ahi starter was amazing as well as the sea bass. The perfect place to bring an out of town guest.

I have not been to Elements in a few years. I am pretty sure that we had the best seat in the house as far as the beautiful view goes. My date was the most attractive thing in the room and our evening was flawless. Food, service and atmosphere was just perfect.
I can't wait to book another visit. Thanks so much.
