Great food! Service was excellent in the lounge as well. Disappointed that the main restaurant was closed and everyone re routed to lounge for dinner. Wasn’t informed this was happening. Selected Element for this reason and no communication was given regarding the change. Nonetheless, service and food made up for this problem

Great inclusive menu was perfect for our group. Only one decision to make about what to order! Sufficient quantity of each 2-choice course. Some of the hot food was cooler that I would have preferred, but it was all good.

Excellent service and the meal was amazing. We had drinks on the 3rd floor terrace before dinner and the bar staff was friendly and attentive. For dinner, our server Josh was wonderful and very helpful.

Went on date night with my boyfriend & we opted to sit on the patio which was awesome. Plenty of space & not overcrowded. There’s an option on the menu to let the chef/restaurant pick your 5 course dinner & we were feeling adventurous. We got 5 courses that included had so much delicious food. The sticky buns w/pork belly & the brussel sprouts were our favorite. We split a bottle of wine & the dinner was perfect. The waiter was phenomenal & supper attentive. He explained each dish & even advised us that Busch Stadium would have fireworks after the game & we could stay & watch it from the patio.

I would definitely recommend Element to anyone!

We were surprised to be disappointed due to our previous experiences. The entrees; Beef & potato’s & Tomahawk chop we’re just average. We did enjoy the Brussels sprouts and our desert but combined they couldn’t carry the meal.

Great Fried Brussel Sprouts & the Halibut was amazing!

Due to rain on Saturday had to sit inside next to the Chef's.

Would love to come back & enjoy dining with a different seating arrangement.

The food was amazing, we had several of the share plates, all which were awesome. The only thing I would complain about was the service...our waiter never asked if we would like more drinks and several times did not visit our table to check in for 5+ minutes. Would definitely go back but would appreciate more attentive service especially when you’re spending $100+ for 2 people.

Our waitress "Jack" was AMAZING! From greeting us as we walked in, explaining the menu and specials, drinks, etc.., she had it going on! The halibut was excellent as were the drinks. Each dish that went by looked better than the one before! We opted to dine inside, however if it had been a bit cooler out, we'd have been on the large patio. We'll definitely be back.

food not good, server was very good and tried very hard to please, had to wait a very long time for cocktails as he had to go to 3rd floor to get them, we were in the dining room on the second floor. Grilled wedge salad was ridiculous it was so bad, french fries burned and soggy, chicken dry. Did not like the atmosphere, strange smell upon arrival, perhaps chemicals for rock climbing??? Outdoor area did look lovely, but too hot the night we were there.

Visiting St. Louis for business, a colleague and I went for dinner in late May. We sat on the large rooftop patio. The service was stellar and the ambiance terrific, especially as it became dusk. The food was well put together and very flavorful. Proportions are fair. We shared several small plates and had a memorable meal, and leftovers. The crowd was fairly quiet, but we entertained the staff. It's appropriate for a group of friends or a romantic dinner. I will definitely return when in town.

Met up with some friends that o haven't seen in many years, who live 3.5 hours away. We did the tasting menu, which st $50 pp was a bargain. Seemed like at least 8 courses, and they were generous servings presented family style, which was nice. Delicious food, well plated and timed. Highly recommended and a short trip from downtown. They have a lovely bar/lounge upstairs, and both levels have a lovely patio.
