elements at Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Ratings and Reviews
Our experience was phenomenal! the atmosphere was inviting, the seating was great with an amazing view! the food was excellent, the staff was welcoming and very friendly! We will definitely return to Sanctuary for dinner, drinks or possibly stay a few days!
We have been to Elements many times. In our view, the best restaurants in Phoenix/Scottsdale are Elements and Lon's at the Hermosa Inn. (Rancho Pinot Grill is also a reliable choice for an excellent meal, but it does not have the beauty and style of Elements or Lon's.
I was given a $300 gift card as a Christmas gift, si I decided to treat my family and a fiend to brunch to enjoy unique dining experience. We were not disappointed, the was much to choose from on the extensive lunch menu. The server was very knowledgeable of the food and very attentive. Even the manager made an appearance to inquire about the service, and made recommendations for desserts. which we did order.
All in all the best brunch my party has experienced.
Menu was very creative with a subtle Asian flare. We had amazing appetizers and the sea bass special was ridiculously delicious. Be aware that specials come with an undisclosed high price but even if I asked the price before hand I still would have ordered it. So delicious!
Disappointed. I was looking forward to trying Chef Beau MacMillans food but it didn't really measure up. Good fresh oysters with mignonette accompanied our cocktails. The drinks were ok, just not something I'd go back for. Our apple and radish salad was fine if a bit underseasoned. The "special" rib eye steak was very thin so it came over done as to our order but the fiddlehead ferns and mushroom topping was tasty. It took a long time to get a scoop of ice cream and the manager said she'd comp it. No, it was on the bill. The restaurant wasn't busy so the misses were unusual for a noted place like this. I have since heard similar opinions from locals.
Oh, and don't forget the speed trap set up at the end of the street leading to Sanctuary. Such a fond farewelll to visitors.
My wife and I had dinner at Elements for our first wedding anniversary. We were married on the Sanctuary property, and the ambiance remains second to none on the side of Camelback mountain. The dinner was excellent, all the food was delicious and the service attentive and they did do the special extras for the anniversary (desert, etc.). My only complaint is that my wife was offered an off menu special, which she ordered, and then was quite disappointed when our waiter returned to tell us that it was no longer available - but a relatively small inconvenience.
Our experience was fine, but could have been better. The view was hard to appreciate fully since we were seated away from the window. Service was indifferent (with the exception of "KC" the table steward, who was a delight). It felt as if once they determined we weren't celebrating a special occasion - and that we weren't celebrities - little effort was made to make our dining experience special. Our primary server did not really seem to know the menu, especially the cocktail menu. I was directed to a martini-style drink after specifically stating I didn't like martinis. Waitress could/should have inquired with the bartender, but clearly didn't. Finally, the food was good, but the Asian-inspired touches didn't always enhance the offerings. It felt forced. Menu was somewhat limited. I'm not sure we'd return to elements when there are so many great dining options.
Just an amazing all around experience. From the private both seating with a view overlooking the Valley to the mix of attentive and friendly waiters, Elements made us feel special. The drinks were delicious, our various appetizers were fantastic (go for the bacon and lobster mac dishes, trust me), and the filet and salmon main courses were both divine. All this at one of the nicer venues in the Valley culminated to a truly wonderful evening. Thank you Elements.
Every ELEMENT of our experience was 5 star! Starting with service- We were given a private patio for our party of 5 overlooking the valley. The staff even surrounded our table with heaters since it was a cooler night. Talk about attentive staff. Ambience - did I mention we were on a private patio overlooking the valley? And food- We love farm to table restaurants for their fresh ingredients and creative dishes. The cuisine at Element did not disappoint. Try the seared oysters! And even if you do not save room for dessert - order the PB bomb. Sure the bill was a tad pricey, but I did not find it to be extravagant for a fine dining experience. We will definitely return!
