    It's always nice to dine at Elements. The food was delicious, the winter cocktails were superb, and wait staff was attentive without being intrusive. At first, we thought we could sit outside but the breeze made it too cold for us. The staff seated us indoors in a wonderful booth. Very accommodating.

    We enjoyed the brunch /breakfast food and the spectacular views at the restaurant and then listened to the good acoustic guitar player in the other room. It is such a lovely place and the customer care is exceptional. Feeling blessed to have tried it and shared a memorable brunch with our son who relocated to Phoenix from Boston this year.

    While the location is lovely, I have to say I was very disappointed with the service, food and experience at this top ranked restaurant. While I server was nice, no one cleared plates or refilled water until we asked. The truffle fries came out over cooked, some burnt and all end bits like it was the bottom of the bag. Not impressed!

    Had a drink in the bar first and the bartender made amazing cocktails. Unfortunately had a very negative experience with the hostess who had short, dark hair which put a bad taste in our mouths. I haven’t experienced that level of snootiness, sarcasm and overall rude behaviour in a service setting before. Luckily our server, the food and the hilarious man who brought our food out was able to turn around our experience.

    Lovely ambiance and very good food. However wine list is too pricy. Our $166 bottle of Gevry Chambertin was barely a cheap table wine and not acceptable at any price. We will be more careful in the future in selecting a wine.

    The food was amazing as was the atmosphere and service just a tiny bit less (only that we waited for our courses a little more than I expected). However, our server’s recommendation was spot on. I had the filet of beef and my wife had the pork chop. Both incredibly done and delicious. We both wound up taking home some of the delicious entrees. Always a place for a celebration or just a special meal!

    Had not realized that an early a.m. brunch would not be served where we had a view. One of our more fussy members felt jis bacon was not to his liking and the eggs quite small. My abocado toast was wonderful. The other two patrons seemed to enjoy their choices.

    Resort guests- ate four meals at Sanctuary Elements; two breakfasts and two dinners. Service in the BAR was excellent (thank you Aspen!), but bar area was too loud to hear each other, and the resort plays THROBBING Bass-y repetitive music in the bar AND restaurant at an annoying volume. We ended up not eating the pork chop, as it was really tough. The waitress took it off our bill. (Thank you Aspen!) Breakfast of morning one: good food, service was COMPLETELY missing in action. We were forced to get our own condiments etc. Server was seen TWICE during meal: taking order and bringing bill. Dinner 2 was at Elements. Waited for 20 mins to be seated with a reservation, for which we checked in by name two minutes early. I checked in 10 minutes later, hostess, scattered and disorganized, asks "WHO are you?" Finally seated (20 minutes after reservation time) AFTER my husband told the hostess "you were simply clearing a table for us?" She acted surprised, checked the table and immediately seated us. Food was better than good, but not great. Service was, again, MIA. We spoke with manager, who was apologetic. It was a frustrating experience, especially as this was an anniversary trip/dinner. Breakfast 2: excellent service from Carli, and excellent brunch! Food served hot, very fresh, Carli checked in often. Overall, experience was ..... uneven. This seems like training and management issues to me, having worked in the hospitality sector during undergrad and grad school. Beautiful property, spotty service.

    A vacation trip for 2 couples from NY. We enjoyed the excellent food and wine. Our waiter Rick was passive aggressive, full of himself and proceeded to turn us off even more by the end of our meal by making our simple question into a political debate. Shame on Rick as he ruined our evening as well as the ability to get a very generous tip!
