I enjoy dining at Elements other times, but Elements was stretched too thin on V-Day. With a reservation we still waited 10 mins to be seated. We were awkwardly seated in the way way back on cheap lifetime tables at a dirty, stained and crumb covered table. By 8:30 things were no longer available. Limited menu. It was unprofessional looking. Our waiter was stretched thin. My steak was ordered medium well and it was mostly rare. I was looking forward to this night out and had expectations based on previous visits. We rarely go out and this fell flat. I don’t think I will be coming back. I’d rather spend $75 on food elsewhere.

I would recommend the kitchen to send food out on the table once previous meals are finished or when diners are ready for the next course. Otherwise it feels like we were there to just full tummies. I reminded staff to coordinate with us for how we progressing with food. And overall the staff understood and we enjoyed the food and ambiance!

Everything was fantastic for the Valentines Buffett. The food itself was great, especially the beef tenderloin. The only issue we had was with the fact that they ran out of creme brûlée at 7:30pm even though the dinner service ran until 9:00pm. We will definitely be back next. The best part of the evening was that there was no pressure to leave. We were able to relax and enjoy our meal.

Elements is awful during valentines. We had very little choices and waited 2 hours for a main dish and a dessert. It wasn’t even busy. We have gone once before and didn’t like the restaurant but we got a gift card and tried it again. It wasn’t worth it.

Menu much more limited than it used to be. Seems that instead of fine cuisine-now has more casual foods. Disappointed with limited menu. Also seems louder than it used to be-always thought of it as a quiet date type restaurant -now more for families. Don’t think it will be a first choice for us anymore-Coppermill seems to have better ambiance these days.

The website menu lists crab cakes, which used to be a menu favorite before new management bought the restaurant. Unfortunately, crab cakes are really not available at the restaurant. The food is acceptable but way overpriced.

I feel like elements has gone down hill quite a bit since they got new management and new chef. The staff is very nice, but the waiters seem frantic quite often. Food takes longer to get. I’ve been a regular there since they opened years ago, and this may be my last time. The biggest change has been the food. I’ve had almost everything on the menu so I know what the taste used to be like. Now anything that wasn’t removed was redone for the worst. The flavors just aren’t appealing. It’s like when your Dad goes off script with random spices instead of following the recipe for your favorite meal. At least change the Caesar dressing back please! Besides the flavor, the food is often undercooked or over cooked. This time I had a pasta dish and the chicken tenders. Two of my favorites. The pasta was cold and many noodles weren’t cooked all the way. The chicken tenders were way too salty and slightly burned. On top of that, the portion sizes are smaller. I thought they were perfect before, but now even special ingredients are scarce. For example, the pasta I ordered was the Sea Pesto Pasta. Normally they would add big chunks of Salmon equaling about half a filet, and about 10 shrimp. Last night there were just flecks of Salmon and 4 shrimp. Anyway, just sad to see this happen since there aren’t many good/unique places to eat in Logan.

Out experience was absolutely terrible. Our waiter was slow and not “all there”. Our food came out cold and it was not edible. It didn’t even serm to be cooked. The flavor was odd. We just didn’t enjoy our experience at all. For that reason we defiantly won’t be back.

The only criticism would be how cold it was. Every time the door opened, you could feel the cold from outside. Our table was directly in front of the door, although there was a curtain attempting to protect from direct air.

Our server was Amazing. She was extremely attentive.
But, as a Vegan, I WISH that there had been more choices for me. They had salad, beans, and carrots. I also have a gluten allergy, so I was limited there too...I realize that it is hard to please the masses, but I feel that it would be a great idea to have more options available for people like myself who have such strict dietary restrictions.

Over all the staff, and restaurant provided a very nice experience.

When reservation was made I did not know that we would be unable to order from the menu. Only option was buffet. Very expensive for one of our party with dietary needs.
Desserts were still frozen. Not impressed for a meal costing over $100

I’ve gone many times to Elements. This last time the food, some of our favorites, tasted weird. It wasn’t as good as usual. Flavors were different. I found out they have a new chef. When we left we really thought we might never go back. We had 6 unique items off the menu and they all had new sauces that were very different from before in a negative way.

Other than the food changing, it’s a nice place to eat. Usually great service and good ambiance.

I can never understand why this is called fine dining when it couldn't be further from the truth. There is no chef's menu, it is the same awful menu every day. Nothing interesting or appealing, which is unfortunate in a town where there aren't many options. This place could really monopolize. Service is awful. We have a reservation but arrive and spend five minutes at the host desk while they try to figure out life. All three of us were in the middle of eating (think silverware in hand, plates over half full, actively chewing) when the server came over and asked if we were ready for the check. It was actually quite embarrassing considering that we were hosting a special guest visiting from out of town. I realize that customer service is lacking all around in Utah, but again, that does not mean that you can't have higher standards.

Ask for a booth, walked by three open ones to ge seated at a table in the middle of noise. Favorites gone off the "new improved" menu. Favorite chopped salad now includes frozen eggs that were watery and grainy egg white texture.
I will say the waiter was a great guy. He delivered food quickly and was polite.

Our experience was profoundly disappointing
After being seated, we waited 45 minutes before we were served with a drink. It was at least an hour after being seated before any food arrived.
The salad was OK.
I ordered scallops for my entree. They were cold and I suspect had been sitting under a heat lamp for a while. They were also tough. The accompanying vegetables were also cold, rubbery and tasted of cooking oil.
Overall a very poor experience
The following day we ate a couple of blocks away at the Beehive Grill - much less expensive and MUCH better food

We waited 55 minutes after ordering to be served. The foid had been sitting out not under a heat lamp and were stone cold. My sauce had a scummy film on the top. We didn't see our server in all that time. The French onion soup was nasty and flavorless. The fresh fries, usually excellent were soggy, cold and tastless. We were celebrating my daughter's graduation and we were at the restaurant for two hours and 20 minutes because the service was so slow. This used to be our go to restaurant for special occasions and we are going to find a new place.

Elements tries fairly hard. It was a busy graduation dinner for our daughter and probably the 6th time that we have dined here. We waited 20 minutes to be seated at 6:35 pm for our 6:15 pm reservation made two months ago. Watched all other parties be seated including a walk in without reservation.. But we were seated. We got Josh as our server. I don't think that his training for the position was complete. Probably pressed into service due to the busy time. But he gave it his all and did a pretty good job given his apparent lack of experience. The manager was non-existent which was surprising given all that was going on in Elements. Dinner turned out fairly well and we were served well.

Our waitress was very attentive. The food was excellent. I had the grilled salmon and the vegetables were amazing with an incredible flavor. One of my friends had the lettuce wraps. I will definitely try those on my next visit. My party of 5 felt very comfortable being able to visit together and not feel like we were being rushed. We have taken our out of town friends to the Elements and all have raved over the menu and food. We will most certainly return.
