Elements is a destination restaurant that provides a unique dining experience by bringing fine dining to the rolling hills of Camden, an easy and scenic 35 mile drive east of Downtown Kansas City. We provide the feeling of eating at an exclusive restaurant in the city, but without the hustle and bustle. You are sure to be pleasantly surprised by this intimate restaurant. Sit, enjoy a glass of wine, a meal full of flavor, and the natural scenery; that is what Elements is all about!

Friday and Saturday evenings our menu features Four Course meal selections, as well as Ala Carte selections for the lighter appetite. Price range from $18 to $45.

Reservations are recommended, as seating is limited. Casual attire is acceptable (no baseball hats), non-smoking facility, cell phones are to be turned to silent mode while dining, we do not have accommodations for small children (no children's menu or high chairs).

Exceptional quality and attention to detail. Service is above average and the food excellent. The only "improvement" that I can recommend is the lack of any form of "Bread" with any meal. ????? Maybe they will add that as an extra at some point.

Definitely worth the beautiful drive out of the city to visit this hidden countryside gem. This open concept restaurant designed by the chef and owner himself overlooks the rolling hills of the country. The food and ambience were fantastic. You can watch the chef prepare your meal while you sip wine and relax. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The chef visited us several times to discuss the food and history of the restaurant which was very nice. My husband and I both enjoyed the four course dinner. Appetizers, salads and dessert were preselected and we were able to choose our main course from a nice variety of selections. The chef explained that many of the ingredients are grown right on the property in their personal garden. We will definitely be back for the delicious food and beautiful scenery.

Anniversary dinner date was a success as Elements Restaurant served up a wonderful meal in a very quiet, peaceful country setting. The owners, Chef Kurt and Diane were very attentive and pleasant during our evening. The four course meal was very good and portions were sufficient.
The only negative was the lukewarm coffee we were served (our second cup) with the chocolate mousse we had for dessert which was excellent. That will not prevent us from returning to experience their hospitality in the future.

Atmosphere was very quiet. You can actually have a conversation. I like the restaurants information about phone usage. It was very refreshing not to have them out. We actually left our phones in the truck. The food was superb. High end dining with casual attire.
Chef was personable and made sure you had no problems.
We will be back.

I love this hidden treasure. Small intimate dining where you get to watch the chef prepare the food. The timing of the meals is perfect as he observes your dining and paces the courses accordingly. The service is wonderful. The staff is all very friendly. This is one of my favorite places. You can have a great four course meal and a good conversation with your table mates. The menu options are limited, but diverse in offerings. Only a few tables here and the noise level is low. I highly recommend.

We have dined here many times and have always found this restaurant to be of impeccable quality. We like coming here for special occasions such as birthdays, Valentines day etc. It is every bit as high a quality as any of the Plaza restaurants and the prefix 4 course dinners are a great value. Oh - did I mention the country charm? Try it you'll love it!

From a beautiful view of the countryside while having a quite date to a catered business meeting, I can't think of a more accommodating place to enjoy a fine meal. It's not "down the block" for a very good reason. We plan to go back when the leaves begin to turn as the rolling hills look to be a perfect place to enjoy the colors of fall.
