Went here to celebrate our 4 year anniversary and was blown away. Every member of the staff we encountered was amazing, they were all extremely friendly and polite and had a smile. The food was nothing short of spectacular!

It was an amazing evening! We had such a wonderful time for our 50th wedding anniversary celebration in January that I decided this was where I wanted to dine for my birthday. I was not disappointed and was very happy to see Denise who always joins in the fun and warm fuzzies with hugs and laughter. She is simply the best! Beautiful view and extraordinary meal in an elegant setting, what could be better? Kudos to the chef and wait staff!!

We have been going to Elements for years,
But after this dinner we no longer will.
We waited 25 minutes for service and only after we hunted down the hostess to tell her did someone appear.
This started really spoiled the entire meal.
The appetizer - calamari was horrible
Our entrees were fine
Thanks to the great wine we selected we were able to salvage something tasty.

I was here 5 years ago. The food was very good, and I always wanted to go back. I was visiting my son, so we made a reservation. It was as good as I remembered. It was a bit pricey, but very tasty. The chef is amazing, and he is from Massachusetts, and so our we:)

We went to Elements for our anniversary. The service was outstanding! The food was beyond excellent. The chef really knows what he is doing and the servers are well versed because everything they recommended was beyond delicious. We would definitely go back. We think this was the best meal we had ever had in all of Phoenix over all our years. It was excellent!

Outstanding service and a beautiful sunset view. The cauliflower cheddar soup special was spectacular. The main course (roasted chicken and roasted corn ravioli) were good, but a bit disappointing after the wonderful soup.

We have never been disappointed dining at the Elements! Yes, the drinks are more expensive as well as the entrees but considering the ambience, the quality of the food, the service, the view and etc it is all well worth it! It is definitely our choice for Birthdays & for our out of town guests!
A special thank you to Cooper & Travis for their special attention Saturday night to the "Virgo" dining section!

Once again Elements was amazing! The food and service is the best you can find. Our waiter Greg did an excellent job. We even asked about an item that used to be on the menu that was removed and they came through. The views are outstanding, food is rich and unique and the service is perfection. My husband proposed to me here as well 2 yrs ago, so it will always hold a special place in our hearts.

The food was first class. Service was always attentive and many delicious options available. Customizable for dietary restrictions. The chocolate/peanut butter bomb was amazing for dessert.
We also had breakfast here and it was top notch with fresh fruit and cinnamon roll pastries on the weekends.

Sanctuary is an excellent place with and excellent reputation. Unfortunately we had a wait staff that thought more highly of himself than the service he was there to provide. He forgot to put our appetizer order in and then came back with the excuse that he is just extremely busy this evening and then never came back to the table again. Not even to put the $150 dollar bottle of wine we had ordered. We did finally get the appetizers after I sent back the entree and said we wanted the starters first not after our entree. The manager did comp the appetizers which was appreciated but when you go to a restaurant of this caliber paying the prices they charge the bar is set at a much higher standard. The food was excellent but the service and experience was very disappointing.

I took my girlfriend here for her birthday. I was able to make special arrangements prior to our arrival and the staff was very accommodating. They gave us a lower booth with a great view, the concierge was able to arrange for a bouquet of flowers to be placed on the table, they also made a dessert extra special by writing a creative message on the plate with chocolate syrup and we also left with a delicious cupcake made special for her birthday. The entire staff went above and beyond to her wish her happy birthday throughout the evening and not a single detail was overlooked during our dining experience. My hat is off to the Riley & Kasey our waiters, the chef and the entire staff at the restaurant. It was an experience to not be forgotten.

For the middle class budget, this is a special occasion restaurant. Very pricey, but oh so delicious. This place oozes fine dining, ultra attentive servers, and rich food. I had the salmon, and although salmon is commonplace, the salmon you eat here will trump any you've had at any other restaurant. Soft, flaky, slightly charred on the outside...and moist. My wife had the swordfish....like a fish steak, but so soft, she didn't even need a knife to cut it. With all the accouterments on the plate, the visual aspect on both plates is just stunning.
We also had the brusel sprouts without bacon. Slightly charred, no metallic after taste, soft and texturally wonderful.

Some of the earlier reviews I read (and my earlier experience...I had been at the restaurant for lunch or dinner four or five times before) led me to believe it might have been an experience I would value for the view only, not for the food or service. In fact, the food and service were both extraordinary this time, and the view was wonderful as usual. I will be going there many times in the future.

This was our first time visiting Elements and it was a fantastic experience. Service was great and food was amazing. My Wife and I went for our anniversary dinner and we could not have been happier. Cant wait to go back.

A great experience. Exceptional appetizer and starter cuisine. A little disappointed with the portion size of the entrée (very small). Deserts were mind-blowinginly delicious!!! I want the recipes for the hot chocolate as well as the honey marmalade from the mango semifreddo.

I was a guest at the Sanctuary Spa and thoroughly enjoyed ALL of my meals at "elements". However, the Friday night dinner with local friends was spectacular! We agreed that the kurobuta pork chops were cooked to perfection and the Atlantic Salmon was better than any other. The kung pao cauliflower was a hit (even for someone who doesn't like cauliflower) and my personal favorite appetizer was the fiery calamari. However, the shishito peppers were lacking any spiciness and were definitely the weak link in an otherwise perfect meal. Save room for dessert because the pb bombe and toasted marshmallow s’mores are BOTH extraordinary.
The Friday night live music in the bar was a little too loud for pre-dinner drinks, but the restaurant allowed us to be seated at our table earlier so we could enjoy the bartender's fabulous mixology. Noise levels on other evenings were more comfortable.
It was great to introduce a local couple to this great restaurant for their special occasions.
