I proposed to my girlfriend here and the wait staff was magnificent. I went in three days prior to see if it was ok to propose there and let them know I was just going to be doing drinks and dessert. I was worried when I received a call from a different manager Saturday at 4 pm which was 5 hours prior to my reservation that they do not do this for drinks and dessert only so I was worried that they were going to cancel. It worked out at the end and our server made the night very special and a night to remember.

Our server, Cooper, was phenomenal! He knew the menu like the back of hi hand and was able to recommend some amazing dining options for us (I have severe food allergies that can make eating out challenging and he he didn't bat an eye when I explained my complications).
From drinks, to starters, to dinner, to dessert, the whole experience was wonderful!!
Go see Cooper.

Two of us had the chicken and loved all the yummy flavors. One had the short ribs and said they were delicious. One had the filet mignon and didn't think the taste was as good as ours at home with a rub we got from a butcher years ago and have used since.

stunning views of the surrounding mountains, very upscale clientele, some with pvt jets arriving at local airport food is good, not great service is good wine list is well structured and fairly priced word of advice: we went twice once for everyday dining where we chose well and the food and service was great second was new year's eve where the meal was poor and the wine pairings sometimes inappropriate bar drinks wonderful (grapefruit basil was great)
when in the area you should def give it a try ask for a booth

The food was delicious, the view for the sunset was beautiful. I wish I could remember our waitresses name because she was awesome. Without us asking, she took us out on the balcony, pointed out all the different peaks and mountains and their names, then took several pictures for us. It is pricey but for a special Christmas Eve dinner for two, it was a great experience.

Elements remains my favorite restaurant in Phoenix. I hadn't been in over a year and took some out of town guests that are total foodies form the Bay area. We had an amazing meal, the best view of the Praying Monk at sunset. Couldn't have been better. Thanks so much!

Absolutely the best meal I've had in a long time! Swordfish....unbelievable. we had good service, but I expected GREAT service. Overall, perfect place for a quiet, intimate birthday meal. The birthday cupcake they gave my husband was delicious. Such a perfect evening.

Elements is a beautiful restaurant at the Sanctuary Camelback Mountain. From the moment you drive up to the valet you feel like you are in a nicer world. We arrived early and went to their bar (Jade). It was very busy and loud, but everyone was having fun. At the exact time the hostess arrived to tell us that our table was waiting. We had a nice view before and after sunset. The service was good, but our server seemed to be handling the entire room since there was a private party next door. Everything was well prepared and we had a great time. A place to bring friends that need a nice break.

This was my second visit and I thoroughly enjoyed it AGAIN. The service and food were exceptional and the facility, although a little pricey, is well worth the visit. On my first visit I was staying at Sanctuary. This visit however was specifically to return to elements. Tip: try the edamame.

It could have been a lot better the service that is. The food was good not the best being from NYC, but very good for being in Arizona. The problem was the waiter pushing every expensive item on the menu and pushing the most expensive bottle of wine. Lol being from NYC it was laughable to listen to this guy. IF I ask you what you recommend and it just happens to be the 4 most expensive items on the menu for appetizers and the 3 most expensive for entrees , I'd rather not recommend this place, go someplace that they care to have you come back and recommend friend and family to go to, clearly they only wanted your money here. we left with a bitter taste in our mouth with the lack of experience our waiter had and the lack of attendance he had to our table. The Chilean Sea Bass special could not be finished, way too much Salt and the filet mignon entree had mushrooms that you could not chew through and the waiter had no clue what they were. My girlfriend thought it was a fatty piece of stake, I thought after the waiter stared at the mushroom with a flash light for ten minutes he would have the answer, but nope no idea he had to go to the chef and come back later after it was gone to tell us what it was.
Overall great ambiance some great appetizers but service and entrees a Big Bust!! We have had way better meals for $100 bucks. And have also dined together having a single dinner cost $500 in New York City. This was nothing special and not worth the headache when you want to relax

The only down side to our luncheon experience was the surprise on the bill for the champagne. $60.00 per glass regardless of brand is ourageouss.since I was running late and joined my friends I really only glanced at pricing and in the future I will ask to be quoted.

What a wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary. Our sever helped set the stage. She guided us through the menu and joked with our son. The food was fantastic and the views were amazing. We would definitely go back.

Lovely restaurant located in elegant setting. It was dark when we arrived so we didn't get to enjoy what we heard was a spectacular view, but indoors was warm and cozy. The staff that greeted us immediately wished our birthday guy a happy birthday, and with that I was confident they would recognize this event with an appropriate dessert, which they did, candle and all.
The cocktails were fantastic, the two appetizers the 4 of us shared were delicious (calamari and mussels) and quite unusual.
The main courses were good, we had duck, which was very nice, the double cut pork chop which was enormous, tender, a bit sweet for our taste but quite nice, and the short ribs which I did not taste but heard they were wondeful. Portions were larger than we're used to (no complaints!!).
Our servers were prompt, but not particularly warm or friendly, we all agreed the specials were described mechanically, our main waiter seemed humerlous and not terribly helpful, and in a hurry.
Still, it was a great meal, we will return soon to enjoy a brunch or lunch, and we've heard the bar is fantastic so we may need to spend some time there too.
