    This was our second time dining at Elements. We celebrated my husband's birthday and the food and service were superb. Their famous walnut prawns were as wonderful as reported, and the pork chops were the tenderest we ever had anywhere. Quite a lot of food, so if you order appetizers, you may want to share an entree. We had the salmon poke and the cauliflower appetizers, so that we had to take home half of the pork chop.

    We dined with friends at Elements last night and had wonderful meals, as always. Our server was very professional and approachable and did a great job. However, the bar service was extremely slow. More than 20 minutes elapsed before we received our glass of wine we had ordered while waiting for our friends; when they arrived, the wait time for their wine was almost the same. I assume the issue could be staffing, though the restaurant seemed to be fully staffed; however, pouring wine should be easily accomplished even in the face of that. We will return because the food is so incredibly good.

    Elements is always a favorite of ours. My husband nearly always has the Walnut Jumbo Prawns--which I also love, but would hate to miss some of the amazing other menu choices. This time I had the crab cakes--fresh blue crab! AMAZING. Everything from the small plate through the entire dinner was great. We dined outside--it was a lovely evening and it's a quiet setting as they have it arranged near the various planters.

    Our meal was excellent but we had to wait quite a long time for it. Apparently, Elements was short-staffed. However, we waited not only for our main courses but also for wine, for some bread and also for our first courses. The staff were very pleasant but obviously overworked!

    Elements has good food but the service has really gone down. Our waitress rarely checked in on us, didn't refill the water glasses, and neglected to tell us that tea refills (tiny glasses with mostly ice) were $3.50 each. She also forgot to tell us that bread is $7 now if you want it with the meal. These are small things but the lack of customer service was a big change from their old days. It's hard to justify their prices when the service is so sub-par.

    ElementsResponded on August 27, 2022Dear ChapelHillGourmet, Thank you so much for your comments. The Iced Tea is a FREE refill and I would be happy to refund you. Bread is not complimentary and listed as the very first item on our menu. Bread was charged even before COVID happened. I completely agree with you on the attention to detail and what we do here is constant training. I can guarantee you that service is not always like that and we will continue to strive for better service. Thank you, Van Chuong, Manager, 919-537-8780

    We had dinner before a show so we arrived at 5:15 and the restaurant was pretty empty. Service was quick and the food was amazing. We started with spring rolls, I had a blue crab risotto and my wife had walnut prawns. Both dinners were fabulous. With 2 cocktails and 2 glasses of wine, the bill was about $140 before tip. Reasonably priced for the quality of the food. we will definitely be returning.

    Not many places offer octopus, but Elements' Baby Octopus Small Plate was excellent. Because one ingredient, chili oil, tends to be spicy hot, we asked if the chef could back off on it. He did, and we loved the plate, served literally sizzling in a small pot. I had the special of the day, panko sea bass, which was wonderful, and everyone else had the Blue Crab and Corn Risotto, which was met with great satisfaction by all. And talk about a wine list! Wow, very impressive. The Prisoner and Orin Swift wines were there, and we loved the Jordan Chardonnay and Ramey Pinot Noir. Highly recommended. We'll be back.

    As always the food was excellent. Our server and the kitchen got their wires crossed and brought all of the small plates at once (despite askng that they come out in a given sequence). The owner quickly made the corections and actually re-cooked one item that came out too early. We appreciated her correction of the error.

    With my husband of 50 years! We enjoyed (bittersweet) our conversations about a schism in the United Methodist Church, of which we are a part and the antics of the former “president” who lives in Florida.. All courses were heavenly. The sea bass special with bokchoy and julienned vegetables was a delicious entree worth every penny. Time and effort in preparation! My husband loved the crab risotto. I would have added bokchoy on the side but he was delighted with the way it was.

    Elements is a favorite restaurant for us and many friends and neighbors. The food is consistently interesting and very tasty. I can't think of a single meal that I would rate less than excellent. Service has also been consistently excellent. Last night three in our group had the crab cake special and that dish was a joy. The fourth in our party had grouper and loved it.
