My review pertains to dinner. We ordered the "beet salad" which was supposed to come with gold and red beets for $11. We got a plate of curly kale, with 4 small pieces of a red beet, that may or may not have added up to one whole beet. I reported this to the waiter who just said, "I guess they ran out of yellow beets," and did not offer to adjust our bill or provide an alternative. $11 is a lot for a plate of curly kale. I also asked for a side order of bread but was told they don't have any bread in the restaurant. I told him I wanted the lamb pink in the middle, not red, and he told me that was medium rare. (I always specify color instead of a term like this since different people have different interpretations of doneness terms.) The lamb I was given was red. To his credit, he did take it back and it came out pink. But again there was not a lot of lamb on that plate for the price, the sweet potatoes were mushy. I can't remember the vegetables.

On the positive side, I have to compliment the waiter we had for breakfast. He was attentive and accommodating, even thanked us by name after we signed out bill. The buffet is a little pricey at $20, and the bread products are of mediocre quality, but the omelettes were good. Fruit selection can be improved, it's mostly melon.

Considering there are no other options for a nice dinner in the hotel, dinner was good. Each member of the party was able to easily select something that fit their dietary preferences.

Waiter was very accommodating and very nice. We needed to eat fast and he was able to rush our food. Bread was great. The beet salad was very good with nice balance of flavors. The flounder was good, but not amazing. The salmon was extremely dry and super salty (and I love salt). My water was empty for 10-15 min before it was refilled. Even if we were staying at the hotel, I'm not sure we would eat here again.

Service was fantastic and good was delicious! I was exhausted after a long day, so opted to eat at the hotel. I was pleasantly surprised with how good everything was!

Great for a business lunch-service was quick and efficient, and the food surprisingly good. I have the tomato soup which had a nice little kick to it, and the grilled fish sandwich which was actually very delicious. Good location, quick in and out parking lot of the hotel.

I was surprised to be the only ones sitting down in the restaurant... Even more so after dining there. The service was excellent, the food was utterly delicious, and the meal - while slightly pricey - was not unjustly priced. We got the shrimp and grit fritters, the lamb shanks, the day boat scallops, and for dessert, 'Fire' which was a small but decadent chocolate lava cake topped with various things that just added to the overall flavor. I would visit this place again

Went for our weekly date night. Very quiet that evening, but to our advantage. The bean soup was great and my filet was cooked perfectly. My wife's meal was equally good. Not close to home, but will return again.

This was a mediocre experience. The staff were very friendly and attentive, but the place clearly is having management issues. My lamb was undercooked, so I sent it back. When it came back, it tasted rancid, and was far too fatty.
The chef did a great job of making the steak I ordered instead, but the point was to get a good meal and go to bed.
Overall, the menu is passable, the wine list basic, the location uninspiring.

Food was satisfying -- except for the lackluster caesar salad -- and a little spendy. The drinks strong Wine list is UNINSPIRED, the usual corporate wine list suspects. No finds, no values, nothing interesting whatsoever. Jaime, our bartender, is easygoing and friendly. No hurries, no worries (on his part). Seating is limited to a dozen seats at the bar and some haphazardly arranged high-stool tables in the lobby/atrium. No booths, no sense of a dining space at all. Your view is the door to the business center.

If you're stuck out here in the exurbs and don't want to commute to your next meal, this will do the trick.

Good food in a quiet setting while we waited for a friend to depart the airport. Exactly what you want in a good hotel restaurant.

My husband and I have been coming to Elements on Level One for many years for Thanksgiving. They have a terrific buffet and wonderful wait staff.

I have used Elements several times for business lunches. It's easy-in, easy-out, fast service, great food, polite and professional staff, and reasonable prices; perfect for mid to high level clients.

Best hotel bar and restaurant in the area. Service was a bit on the slow side, but not so much that it was a problem. Consistently good food, they could definitely use a refresh of beer selection; a few local craft beers on tap would be awesome. Manager bent over backwards to try and help us use an open table gift card, which I found out the next day isn't something this place even accepts.

Good place for a business lunch. Good beer choices. Fun mixed drinks. A menu with something for every mood.
