    We were fortunate enough to have found Elements. The food and service were great. Steaks and seafood were equally good. Good wine list. We were able to watch the parade from our table! Only negative was a smokey drink which was not to our liking. Great experience!

    This was our first visit back to Element since it has new owners, Element used to be one of our favorite restaurants, We were very disappoimted in the quality of the food. Although prepared to the correct temperature, our steaks were not the same quality as in the past. The sides were also disappointing and unimaginative. Overall, I would not recommend spending the money on a meal here. It was okay - just not special.

    I have been here many times over the last 4 years and never had anything but stellar food and service. I picked it tonight for my anniversary and listed it on my reservation. We had a lovely card that said thank you for sharing this occasion with us. Well, the bread was delicious, the wedge salad was delicious, although a bit short on the bacon. Entrees took forever. Both our entrees were a bit problematic. My blackened cobia was seared nicely, yet there was no discernable seasoning to it and the accompanying rice was blah and the mint/avocado was salty and not good. My husband had a pork chop which was cooked nicely but no distinct seasoning. The potato puree was not good, but we had mashed potatoes because the server encouraged us to get them since the dish had no potatoes??? My champagne was a brut, which was too sweet to drink and I asked for a glass of wine. Of course I was charged for both, no complimentary anniversary anything. Overall very underwhelmed for such an occasion.

    The meal was pretty standard steak and potatoes. My NY stripe was cooked correctly and tasted fine. It wasn’t a particularly special cut of steak, for $47, it should be dry aged or something you can’t get at Outback Steaks. My wife had a filet. She got sick shortly after eating it. My 5 year old son had their halibut dish from the adult menu and really liked it. The side portions are huge. You can easily feed 3 people off of 1 order. Given all the good restaurants in Sarasota, you can do better than Elements at these price points.

    Service really let this place down. Long time to even order drinks and then they got it wrong. One item missed from food order so had to wait for that as well I’m sure if all went well it would be a really nice place but not sure if we will go again and risk it. Other places near by have given better overall experience.

    Second time dining at Element, and it was even better than the first. We sat at an outdoor table and watched the world go by as we sipped Rose Prosecco and enjoyed the evening. The filet was the best we've ever had, and we've been ordering it in various restaurants for 30 years-so tender, and the steak butter was divine. The only disappointment was the fig and prosciutto pizette-a bit dry and bland. Service was prompt and friendly. Will return, and highly recommend.

    Service was slow but understandable with current labor shortages. Everything we ordered (sides, appetizers ) were excellent EXCEPT for the Halibut two of us ordered. They were over cooked and too dry to dry eat. This kind of things sometimes happens. The response from the waiter and the maitre d was I’ll tell the chef. There was no further conversation or action !

    We’ve been going to Element since it opened and were always very pleased. Except yesterday. The food was quite underwhelming. The cheese appetizer was nothing but a tasteless show. The raw oysters were tiny. His sweet potato gnocchi did not have the light consistency of a delectable gnocchi. It was almost hard. My beef ravioli was practically cold and was squished in a narrow appetizer plate slipping out from the sides. The apple cobbler was basically full of hard and crunchy pieces and felt so unpleasant to enjoy. At the end it was the impeccable service and the great cocktails that saved the Day. I believe Element can do better than this.
