    Josh did an awesome job for us tonight. We did wine, apps (oysters and foi gra), black grouper and the KC strip and lemon bread pudding (and a cake bread Cabernet, with some grandfather desert port). Pacing, attention, food quality and the overall vibe was outstanding. Nice work Josh!

    Amazing Easter brunch. I had steak & eggs. Medium rare 6 oz steak was cooked to perfection, as were sunny-side up eggs. My wife had the huevos rancheros with poached eggs. Also excellent. And we enjoyed spicy Bloody Mary’s with our food. Very tasty. Service was attentive and quick. Not inexpensive, but worth the price. Will definitely return.

    Overall poor food experience. My friend ordered the burrata salad with steak tips. There were very little greens and salty steak. The next guest ordered the mushroom entree and was very disappointed. The meal did not fit the description on the menu . I ordered the fish of the day blackened and it was over salted with oily vegetables underneath the fish. For the prices they charge we expected a much nicer quality. The service was excellent and the ambiance is beautiful.

    Started with a Lychee fruit martini and wonderful raw oysters. Burrata salad next was split and very good. Typically don’t order steak when dining but decided to try since Element takes pride in their steak. No disappointment. Perfect steak. Ribeye for me and filet for my wife, served with red wine Demi glaze and truffle butter respectively. Yum! Sides of gourmet mushrooms and a wonderful creamed corn were perfect. Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon to accompany our meal was just right. No room for dessert but a cappuccino and we were able to enjoy a few bites of the delightful lemon cannoli bread pudding with strawberry purée. A pricy evening for certain but a memorable experience. Our waiter Eric and bartender Sean made the evening even more fun.

    Element is an elegant venue for dining, with very helpful wait staff and delicious entrées. However, the prices are not for the faint of heart, and the choices were fairly limited. But if you're going for a special occasion and cost is not a concern, you will have a lovely time and great food.

    We are from Pittsburgh and came down to Sarasota with our son to celebrate his birthday. He chose this restaurant because of his love of steak. It did not disappoint. We sat outside and the service was impeccable. The food was delicious. Would highly recommend and would return to this restaurant.

    Wonderful dinner for 5 of us with important clients. Element made us look good! From Shaun our bartender to our waiter (red beard, sorry forgot his name) service was outstanding. Wine list is great, wine chilled, presented and poured expertly. Mains were excellent (scallops, salmon). Apps were also Excellent (oysters, ahi tuna, steak on crackers, etc). Also side dishes were notable (steak fries, creamed corn, mushrooms, lobster Mac). Finally, we splurged on desert (pumpkin bread pudding cheese cake and crème brûlée) and grandfather tawny port. Yummy. Absolutely excellent meal all around.

    Everything was great. One recommendation that we have is this: the waiter inquired as to whether we had dined there prior. When we responded that we had in the past, he should have asked us if we wanted him to walk us through the entire menue or, did we have any questions. Instead, he went through the entire menue. It was not necessary to do that.

    The food was great, the service exceptional, the ambiences/vibe was very cool. The only issue was the amount of time it took to have the food prepared and served to the table. We did not have desert, the table had two drinks each and we were there for over two hours. But for that, all else was outstanding.
