SUSHI NIGHTS- Thursday, Friday & Saturdays starting at 5 pm.

From the moment you walk in to the last delicious morsel you will taste, we promise to deliver a unique and exquisite dining experience. Our cuisine combines classical as well as modern Asian and European cooking techniques to enhance the flavors of local and sustainable ingredients. Our menu changes often to capitalize on the freshest and most seasonal fare. We believe George Barnard Shaw said it best when he said, "There is no love sincerer than the love of food." We couldn't agree more. From fork to mouth, we wish you good eats.

Wonderful meal. Great food & service BUT be sure to request seating in main dining room which has attractive decor (as you enter) look right. We were seated in fairly unattractive section,

The food was excellent and the presentation was outstanding. They had some great tuna specials that weren't on the menu. The sushi was a bargain as an appetizer. I would highly recommend the scallop entree! The wine menu was large and the waiter made nice pairing recommendations.

Food was extremely good. The yellowfin tuna special was among the best tuna dishes I have ever had. The walnut prawns are always delicious. Service was prompt and courteous.

With the exception of the noise level, everything about this restaurant was excellent. When the tables are fully or mostly occupied, it is difficult to hear a table companion with out raising your voice level, at least in the main dining room.

Elements is a wonderful restaurant for amazing tastes, quality food and tasteful drinks. Everything that comes out of the kitchen is exceptional.

If it is seeking opportunities to improve, It is noisy.... They would do well to install some noise dampers like soft sheeting on the walls. Aside from the elements is terrific.

Elements has been consistent and has not yet disappointed. It is one of our "go to" restaurants, when we feel like going out, and it is close to home. I would describe as Asian Fusion. Their sushi is very good as a starter, or primary. The specials are generally really creative and good. My wife has the Chilian sea bass special on this trip, which was outstanding. The service is competent and not overly intrusive. The food presentation is also noteworthy.

Excellent as always. We all started with the beet salad with feta cheese as our appetizers. Followed by cedar plank salmon, 2xouter banks scallops with succotash and saigon noodles with beef filet. One order of coconut cake for dessert. Everybody loved everything. It was my wife’s and mine third visit in two weeks.

We loved the special Mother's Day brunch at Elements. The fresh food, outstanding service and ambiance could not have been better. They went out of their way to provide outstanding Gluten free options, especially the Soft Shell Crabs. It was a memorable dining experience I would highly recommend Elements to anyone looking for fresh, well prepared, food and outstanding service.

I was unimpressed with the quality of our food. Had a lunch “special” that I didn’t really care for. The monkfish was tough, the vegetables were mostly that small corn and a lot of celery and the black bean cakes were also not great. Service was generous and people nice, just not an impressive menu or presentation (long “bento” box type dish made cutting food difficult).
