Went to Elements for our Valentine's date last Friday. Food was amazing. A bit overpriced but really very good. Our server forgot one of our dishes and also put in a wrong dish. I was a server for many years- I might recommend writing down orders! We were in a good mood so we never said anything... probably wouldn't go back just because it is very pricy. A fun experience nonetheless.
First time at elements was for my annive ...
First time at elements was for my anniversary and eventual engagement later that night. It was nice and quiet in our little booth and very private. Tonight was for Valentines day celebration as well as the first day of a new job. It is about a 40 minute drive from home but well worth it. The bill can add up quickly and become quite expensive but the quality of the food matches the pricing. Everything tastes amazing; something you never thought you'd order or pair together are given to you and taste absolutely amazing. We will definitely be coming back her for special occasions time and time again.

After a subpar experience on Valentine's Day, we returned last night at the invitation of Justin Wilson, Food and Beverage Director. He, Beau (executive chef), and Greg (Sommelier and host) went above and beyond to create a very special evening. The food, wine, and service were truly amazing!!! Elements will continue to be one of our favorites in the Scottsdale area and we can highly recommend this restaurant for a lovely dining experience.

Our service was outstanding. The food was delicious. The manager did visit our table. I was blown away by some aspects but unimpressed with other aspects. I think the restaurant portion could use an upgrade visually. They could focus a little more on cleanliness. The floor was pretty dirty in the lounge like did scattered in the floor. Although the scenic view is impeccable the restaurant isn't very modern. I love a good atmosphere. The staff is delightful and I did enjoy my experience and will likely return.

It was our first time at Elements and our experience was outstanding from start to finish. The view from the side of the mountain was spectacular. All of the staff were very professional and the service (our server was Riley) was impeccable. Were able to have conversation without shouting (as is the case in too many restaurants). The Hamachi sashimi was the best ever as was the lobster mac and cheese. The pork chop was superb and the Salmon was tender, not dry, and delicious. The desserts, 2 gelatos and some mores were also wonderful. We will definitely be back and soon!

We are frequent diners at Elements. We love the food and service.
Our only complaint was the fact that you were having two private parties at the restaurant while we were dining. The problem is that the nose level coming from the private parties was unacceptably loud, particularly since one of the parties was right next to where we were sitting and was separated from us by only a curtain.
Incidentally, Riley and his team gave us exceptional service.

What was Great: The food was DELICIOUS! We had the salmon and the ribs . I liked that they didn't overcook the salmon, we got the full benefit of a fine fillet. Everything including the drinks and desserts was very well prepared. Our server was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.
The ambiance is calm and relaxing. We never felt rushed, and the view of the valley is stunning.
What was not great: We were kept waiting 20 minutes after our reservation time. We had to get up and ask about our table. She seemed surprised, and seated us right away. We were right in front of her.

We absolutely love this place! The food hands down has to be the best we have had in all of Phoenix. The chef is absolutely amazing and his food choices are just great! Everything was extremely tasty and just so good. This is definitely our favorite place to go to for special occasions. You cannot compare the view, food and the service to anywhere else in Phoenix. We LOVE it!!

Outstanding all across the board.
My husband and I are major foodies and we've tried every five star restaurant within a 50 mile radius of Phoenix. When we rate a restaurant, we base it on all points including food, service, ambiance, the drive up to the establishment and valet, the greeting by the hostess, the willingness of staff to make you comfortable and even the butter and bread.
We ordered calamari and tuna tartare, both were fresh and delectable. We ordered fillet mignon and the short ribs which were completely full of flavor and love. We had green beans and the brussels sprouts which were to LIVE for and my husband doesn't even like Brussels sprouts!
Then I had the most delicious cup of hot cocoa I've ever had in my life and I'm 45 years old! We had the pumpkin cheesecake and a gingersnap tart which we're just as amazing as the entrées. (Typically we find that if the entrées are strong, the desserts are weak but that was not the case here.)
This is a place to take someone if you really want to impress them, or if you are having friends from out of town and want to show them a little slice of the valley or if you just want to reward yourself for all your hard work. Bravo!!

Our first time experiencing Elements, which had been on my personal wish list to try for several year, and all four of us had a fantastic meal. Very creative menu with interesting flavor combinations and infusions of numerous cultures. Service was impeccable, yet uninstrusive. Very pleased. Definitely a special-occasion destination and we'll be back!

Dinner at this restaurant is always an extra special treat; from cocktails while viewing a sunset to dinner in a cozy booth overlooking the city lights, the evening is always perfect. The food is spectacular, and there isn't a thing on the menu not to love. The service is impeccable, there when you need them and invisible when you don't. The gentleman who took care of us was happy to make suggestions and explanations; thank you C.J.!

Elements was gorgeous! The whole experience was wonderful. CJ, our waiter, was very patient and thorough in explaining the menu. Our food tasted great but the ambiance and service was better. Overall, it was a fantastic experience.

We went Sunday Brunch to celebrate our birthdays. The brunch menu was a selection of dishes from the breakfast and lunch menus, not a buffet. So, one of us had what is usually considered a breakfast dish and the other had a lunch menu dish. We were both very happy with our selections. Well prepared and attractively presented we thoroughly enjoyed our meals while having a lovely view from the terraced restaurant.

Gorgeous view. Food was good, and the table and bar service was excellent. Hostess forgot about us at the bar, but we were there early.
Looked like there were a lot of first dates there. Go for the sunset and order from the bar.

We celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary here this past weekend, and we walked out amazed! Amazed by the service, the ambiance and the Food! This is going to be our spot every year now to celebrate our anniversary.
Thank elements for making it a special night for us.

We have eaten here several times, and have never had a bad experience. Last night was the exception. We were celebrating my husband's birthday, and just about everything that could have gone wrong did. Our entrees came on top of our appetizer even though we asked our waiter to hold until we let him know we were ready for the next course. My filet was so tough I sent it back. How does one prepare a "tough" filet unless they are buying poor quality meat? I got the salmon instead, which was good but not outstanding. We ordered a bottle of Veuve to celebrate and it was warm when brought to us. The sommelier apologized for it being warm. This was ridiculous, as Veuve is not a reserve champagne and commonly ordered. A restaurant of this caliber should have cool champagne by the bottle readily available. My husband's dessert was dry (banana miso) and fortunately was complimentary. I could have given this place a bit of a better review, but to top things off, the valet guy brought us the wrong car. He could not find it!!! Who does that? We had to help him go through keys to find ours. Completely unacceptable! Done with elements

I couldn't have asked for a more magical experience to spend my wedding anniversary with my beautiful wife of 22 years. The professionalism and quality of food was better than anything I experienced in my life. Beau MacMillan, KC and Gary made my night and made my wife feel like a million bucks. Thanks team!
