Traveled here from Chicago for a weekend event at Princeton and so glad we found Elements for a wonderful tasting experience! The food was beautifully prepared and packed with amazing flavors. Claudia, the Sommelier, paired each course wonderfully with wines from all around Europe. If this was in NYC or Chicago it would have a Michelin star! Great space with open kitchen to see the magic happen.

Best dining experience of my life - the female Sommelier paired our wines beautifully and it could not have been more perfect this is better than most Michelin star restaurant I’ve eaten at. Weather was the fish the truffled linguine or the most delicious piece of smoke confused meet I’ve never had a meal quite like this. Bravo !

This was literally the finest meal I've ever had (and I've been to restaurants around the world; even "Atmosphere" at Burj Khalifa in Dubai). I have literally never written a review of a restaurant in my life, this is the first, but they impressed me enough that I wanted to give my total endorsement. I went for my anniversary and every single course was amazing. Every single one. I am a hobbyist cook and frequently feel like the food and experience wasn't worth the money at most places I go. Not here. I could never have recreated any of the dishes. Really top notch and utterly delicious. Spendy but worth every penny.

PERFECTION in every sense!

A very unique experience, the whole staff makes sure that you enjoy your evening even before you get there.
In my case I needed an accommodation due to a dietary restriction and they happily accommodated it without an issue.

Every single dish was splendid and I truly mean every single dish. The sommelier presented each wine by providing a bit of the story behind the wine which I personally enjoyed. I would definitely recommend to add the wine pairing option.

The open kitchen is part of the experience as you can see the chef making sure every dish arrives at the perfect time to each table. Watching them is just amazing!

Delightful dinner with my family at Elements. First off, Heather was super accommodating when we had a reservation outdoor and helping to move tables so we’d have an indoor table.

Second, the dinner itself was really great. We had a great view into the kitchen and the action. Our server was attentive and described every course for us. Favorites were the Madai done four ways and the Wagyu.

I really enjoyed the experience overall, and can’t wait to come back!

Elements offers a tasting menu that blends Asian (notably Japanese) influences and Western standards. We enjoyed the little dishes at the beginning and then the five courses, which were tastefully presented on handmade pottery and interesting dishes. The food was delicious with very fresh, distinctive flavors. The outdoor seating area was comfortable (nicer than I expected), although the smoke from the cigar shop nearby and some guests taking a smoking break detracted from the food flavors.

A lovely evening awaited us at Elements. We were expecting a five-course tasting menu, but actually had a seven course meal. Two interesting dishes, not just a bite, were presented to us prior to the menu items. The staff were very accommodating when I asked for two vegetarian dishes to be substituted for two fish items that I chose not to eat, but my husband enjoyed. In addition to the Asian-style dishes, which were presented in beautiful bowls like a Kaiseki meal, there was the most wonderful bread and butter you could hope for. It seemed unnecessary, but we devoured it none-the-less. The meal was topped off by a wonderful sundae of, fresh, biscuit, huckleberries and ice cream. We are still talking about the evening and the wonderful meal we enjoyed at Elements. Wish we lived closer!

The food was delicious but I would recommend not ordering the 15 course tasting menu. It was just too much food even though we enjoyed most of the dishes. We should have gone for the $125 tasting menu. Eddie, our server, was terrific.

Have been there several times over last 3 years without any disappointment. On this visit we were a bit disappointed overall with the food, mainly taste. Had this been the first visit we probably wouldn’t have been this critical but the bar was set high by previous times. Will not deter us from visiting again though.

Everything was perfect down to the way I could observe the kitchen doing their cleaning at the end of the night. I loved every bite and wanted to thank the chefs in person. Amazing wine pairings that were so well selected. Nothing overpowered the food and they were delicious and they were explained very well. I will absolutely go back and I highly recommend it!
