Elemental was the best dining experience I have ever had. I could write pages but some things are best just unsaid and done. If you are thinking about it... go. But RSVP

Tricky to find, use google maps and then search. Every policy is designed to reinforce that this is Phred's idea of what a restaurant should be. In a party of four or more, someone may be put off. That said it is an adventure and...More

Elemental@Gasworks is a restaurant you will either love or hate, with little chance of being in between. If you expect a "normal" restaurant, with a menu to choose from, friendly banter with your server, or even little things like a sign on the door, this...More

As the sign inside said, "There are 2000 normal restaurants in Seattle - this is not one of them." elemental is one of my very favorite places, and you have to accept it on its own terms. If you want traditional "the customer is always...More

Second time there and just as good as the first. They hit on every cylinder... food outstanding, wine selections excellent, great hosting, delightful service. And you'll want to hug chef Laurie to thank for the experience.

I dunno about you. But being dismissed, ignored, eye-rolled, condescended to ruins my evening. Food was all right and the wine pairings were tolerable. But $140 for two, who had to leave mid-meal because one of us got sick? Hardly a good deal.
