elements at Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Ratings and Reviews
Our waiter was great, making the evening for us. The food was good, but the sauces were heavy and excessive. Unfortunately, the hostess was less than inviting or helpful. If I did not know any better, I would say they were annoyed by having to greet us and help us with our reservations. We will not return and advise others that there are better options in Scottsdale. The view was nice, but not worth the lack of service you would expect from a "5" star establishment.
Everything was spectacular from the moment we were greeted by Rachel, the hostess. Dan was a wonderful waiter as well as the rest of the staff that made our experience and Anniversary dinner a memorable one. The view was awesome and we had a secluded booth. We would highly recommend Elements and will be coming back in the future.
Beautiful special booth. The miso salmon was amazing, the lobster carbonara wasn't very good! It was too creamy without flavor and the noodles were blah. The waiter assistant although kind, continued to pour FIJI water after we requested simply tap. The view is unparalleled and wine list good & fairly priced.
Sadly, we had a bad experience at Elements our last visit. We have thoroughly enjoyed it in the past, but this time ruined it.
We arrived and our waiter brought us our menu and told us the specials. He then proceeded to seat and serve two other tables for the next 30 minutes. Ignoring us. We finally grabbed the busser to tell him the bottle of wine we would like. The Somalia brought us it, opened it, spilled some on the table pouring it then left us alone again. We drank a glass of wine and no server has returned to take our order.
I finally get his attention and waive him over. He takes our order. No mention of his now 45 minute absence from our table.
We order the most expensive dishes and have an expensive bottle of wine and no service. The food runner brings our food, usually accompanied by the server at all other fine dining establishments that we regular. Not this time. The food runner asks us who ordered what, delivers the food and leaves. Our server magically appears a few minutes in to ask how it is.
We eat and finish our meal and are pouring our wine glasses ourselves (not an issue but most high end restaurants try to keep the bottle flowing and pour for you). Our finished plates sit there for 30 more minutes. Our server has closed out the other tables that were seated after us. Brought them dessert menus and never came to us. We always order dessert but we got so annoyed trying to get his attention that we gave up. We took our credit card to the busser and asked him to close us out.
The server doesn't come to see if anything was wrong, ask us if we want dessert since he never brought us the menu. Closes us out and brings the check to sign.
My partner and I regularly go to Steak 44, City Hall and Monarch Cafe and always tip well and enjoy a bottle of wine. We are no issues, never picky, and just always havin.mg good conversation. It was shocking to literally be ignored at a place we have loved in the past.
The food and presentation were good, however overpriced. There are many outstanding restaurants in the valley that offer more for the price. I had a pasta dish with lobster. Good flavor but very small minimal lobster pieces. I expected larger chunks of lobster for $45.00. Too expensive for a bowl of pasta.
We were under the impression that a salad would be substituted for the white sticky rice with the sea bass but it came on a bed of sautéed vegetables. It was good and we told the server about the misconception. A salad was also brought out to rectify the mishap. The sea bass was excellent being and tender. It was a pleasant surprise for lunch. The burger was ordered with pepper jack cheese but was served with American cheese. This was changed quickly with a fresh burger topped with pepper jack cheese.
My wife and I dine at Elements at the Sanctuary several times every year including for some special occasions. We take family and friends, as we did this time who have never been to Elements. It was a great evening in a truly remarkable setting. However, the food, in general, was not up to the usual 5 star standard we're used too. Several entrees were a little overcooked, two fish one steak dish. Nothing terrible but a miss. Every kitchen is prone to some challenges now and then and we'll certainly look forward to our next time at Elements.
New staff from previous dinners there. Service standards were not polished. Back waiter forgot to replace silverware for me to eat my entree. He also took my bread away before my entree arrived. I guess he thought that I had no more room for bread? Muu shuu duck appetizer was good. Salon entree not very special. The evening was spoiled when a party of six , I assumed, came form the bar and was very loud throughout the night. After mentioning it to the host, she laughed and agreed that they were noisy. No apologies given. I will not return if I can't enjoy a fine meal without constantly hearing loud, annoying laughter.
The food was over the top fantastic with flavor. Every plate's presentation was like a piece of art.
Our server Greg did an outstanding job. Management asked us on several occasions how things were. We are extremely satisfied with the food and service and we look forward to going back to Elements again & again.
