The trout was spectacular, the Southwest blend was perfection for the one with a shrimp allergy, and as advertised, the pork chop was heaven, and almost impossible to eat it all. The deserts were as enjoyable for the eye as the... More

I recently had dinner at Elements and I have to say it was a great experience. As soon as you walk into the restaurant the staff is very welcoming and professional. I was seated at a booth with spectacular views of the setting sun. I ordered Roasted oysters Rockefeller, like a traditional version but with a huge Asian influence. Very... More

We like to go at sunset have a drink out side if its not too hot then eat after sunset. This place has also... More

We are at Elements during our stay, and it was amazing! The service was fabulous and the menu was a little daunting (looked very gourmet) BUT the waiter explained the offerings well and our food was impeccable. Highly recommend the steak

The food here was very good but be prepared to pay some decent money for it. We ate here on a Friday night and the wait staff seemed a bit overwhelmed. The service was fairly slow but everyone was nice and we took our time enjoying the view.
