Consistently good and sometimes better than that. Vibrant bar, good wine list and excellent food- a little unusual for the area- Asian Fusion?

Atmosphere very upscale. Wine choices were innumerable and even some medium to low prices. Food was beautifully presented and delicious. Wonderful place to meet special friends for lunch or dinner and great place to celebrate an event.

When folks tell us a restaurant is "unusual", that usually means a menu of things we may not want or they contain something that turns us off. Elements is unusual, but superb. My wife never eats things like octopus. I begged her to try my octopus starter. She wound up eating almost all of mine which she described as one... More

The restaurant is not very elaborately decorated so you would not have thought of this as an upper mid-prized restaurant. Each main is almost $30 and the wines are pricey. My table of 3 ordered two appetizers (fried calamari, breads and fresh springrolls) and three mains with a bottle of wine. Worked out to be nearly $190. The fried calamari... More

We have a wide range of tastes in our family and Elements can accommodate all of them! The sushi and sashimi menus are amazing and there are also terrific poultry, meat and seafood options. The chef is incredibly creative and innovation and the service is quite good. Ask to be seated in the main dining room which is much nicer... More

Elements focuses on wine. They have a wine dispensing unit activated by a smart card which is purchased at the front of the establishment. Nice selection. Focused on US wine with some French and Italian as well. The food and service were excellent.

Fabulous dinner. The Walnut Prawns were delicious, as was the expertly prepared cosmopolitan! We all loved our food.

Recently we met good friends for dinner at Elements, and everything I ordered was outstanding. The house salad dressing was especially tasty, the greens and candied almonds crisp. I ordered my favorite main dish, the walnut prawns, in a delicious, crispy covering, and they were better than ever. I wasn’t drinking wine that evening, but even the tonic water tasted... More

Went here for business dinner and very pleased. First, the bread for the table was outstanding, some of the best I've ever had. Calimari app very nice, with an Asian flair. My colleague raved about the walnut shrimp and my dish was excellent, though I cannot recall its name (like a pot of fried rice with shrimp and sausage with... More
