The night we ate here, it was an Asian inspired theme. Plates were beautifully presented with interesting, well balanced flavors. Service was impeccable. While I was interested in the wine pairings, I opted not to go that route since I needed to drive my guest home. Server was very accommodating and provided small tastes here and their. Delicate beau soliel oysters with very light ponzu and chrysanthemums. 4 different preparations of Madai. So delicate and yummy. Potato and Cauliflower savory custard with horseradish and creme fresh. Light shrimp/crab dumpling in broth. Both of these dishes were so good and left you wanting more. Home made bread and butter were excellent. There were a couple of more courses and dessert. While the price may seem steep at first, it is well worth it and i got way more for my money than i expected.

After having lived and worked (and eaten) in NYC for many years, Elements comparable to the best tasting menus in NYC. Very creative, beautiful, and delicious. Get the wine pairings too; they are reasonably priced, thoughtful, and eclectic.

Wow! Elements never ceases to amaze us! It’s been a couple years since we’ve been able to dine at Elements because of the pandemic, so it was such a treat to finally get back! If NJ had a Michelin guide, Elements would easily have at least 1 star. If you are looking for a fun and incredibly delicious fine dining experience, this is the place to check out. The entire staff, from chefs, to somms, to servers are so knowledgeable about the food they are serving and the wines they are pouring and you can taste the love and hard work they put into their food.

The 1st Course (Madai Sashimi and Scallop) and the 2nd Course (Steamed Halibut and 48 hour Short Rib) were pretty good, but the 3rd Course (Cheesecake and Chocolate Tart) were very disappointing, especially the Chocolate Tart, not good at all.

Very unique experience.. amazing to say the least! You feel as if you are the only one in the restaurant with 6 waiters taking care of every need. And that’s just the small things talking about the food it was literally the best food I’ve ever had in my life. My wife and myself went on Mother’s Day weekend for a date night and Mother’s Day gift they wrote her a hand written card saying happy mother’s. My wife is also pregnant and I called in advance to let them know of the dietary restrictions and they CREATED HER OWN PERSONAL TASTING MENU!!! Simple amazing in every aspect. Highly recommended!!

Fabulous meal. We had the five-course tasting menu. It came with the option to add some oysters - which we did - and also was accompanied by 2 amuse Bouche - which were substantial in terms of what these usually are. Everything we had was outstanding - 2 fish courses, a linguine dish, a slice of wagyu rib eye, and a generous desert course with a sample of 2 items. The first fish course was especially interesting as it featured a particular fish - with a sample served grilled, another sample made as cerviche, a third sample done as a sashimi, and a fourth that made use of the skins (this was my least favorite). The pacing of the dinner was excellent - the preparations and presentations were interesting and flawless - and the service was friendly and attentive. This is a splurge - as it is pricey - but the quality is there.

This is a foodies paradise with a great view of hustle and bustle of downtown princeton. The food is sublime and the service is attentive. For our visit we did a 5-6 course tasting menu (with two bonus amuse bouche).

The menu consisted of wallfleet oysters and ponzu, madai prepared 4 ways, scallop and fennel, monkfish with leek, wagyu ribeye smoked over hickory, and a honey lemon tart with goat cheese ice cream and cranberry puree.

Everything was so delicious. Our favorite was the Madai which showed just how versatile and delicious the fish could be. A close second would have to be the perfectly cooked wagyu ribeye.

We highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion (special or not)

Excellent food. We did the five course tasting menu but we did the vegetarian version. I think the price should have been lower than the tasting menu including fish and premium beef cuts. Each course we novel and tasty. The dessert was our favorite - vanilla ice cream with a sweet cheese and honeycomb. We felt highly overdressed in a suit and summer dress with heels.

I would return but prefer to do a la carte especially if there are any dietary restrictions.
