elements at Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Ratings and Reviews
It was our Anniversary as well as Valentine's Day. Our waiter Dan was very knowledgeable. Everything I had was wonderful. I was just unable to eat it all. I did bring Chilean sea bass home.
For the two of us it was $350.00 with drinks and tip.
My only criticism would be to have smaller portions for those of us who can't eat a whole lot. Half the size and price would be great.
Wow! From the view to the food to the service, this was one of the best dining experiences my wife and I can remember! Our server, Mike, made the experience exceptional by guiding us through the menu. And the manager, Rachel, gave us her undivided attention! The service was fantastic, exceeded only by the food.
We have dined at Elements on 5 occasions. This was the only time I was extremely disappointed. The ambience great. The service was good. The food was a disappointment this time. I ordered the ribeye steak special. The presentation was not what a restaurant of this caliber should have been. The steak was more medium than medium rare. My husband ordered the swordfish was over cooked My son ordered the salmon. The portion was very small.
This restaurant has always been a place where we like to celebrate special occasions. We are not sure we will return to dine . It is relatively pricey but, we have always enjoyed our dining experience at Elements except this time
This is one of our favorite restaurants in Phoenix/Scottsdale. Unfortunately, our service was way under expectations. We were seated in the main dining room for 20 minutes for the waiter, whom did not apologize for leaving us sit there (even asking other waiters and service providers to please find our waiter). He then took our cocktail order and wanted to get the appetizers going. Ten minutes later, we had appetizers but no drinks. I then went to the hostess stand and ask that the manager visit our table. He can by in another 10 minutes, just after we got our drinks. He graciously took care of our round of drinks and the waiter was then a little more attentive. Given that we felt like he wanted to flip our table quickly, we did not order the main course until after we were finished with drinks and appetizers. The poor service ruined the evening.
The view from our table was absolutely beautiful. The service started out very attentive, and our first course (the bisque) was outstanding. As an appetizer, we all shared an order of the Lobster Carbonara. It arrived at the table with no sharing plates and no serving utensils, despite our request to share. We had to flag down a food runner to ask for these things. The carbonara was, in our opinion, inedible. It had the texture of paste mixed with pasta. We found the flavor profile to be predominantly salty with a strange sweet aftertaste. We couldn't taste the lobster at all, and none of us could finish even a single forkful. It's hard to believe that's the way the dish was meant to be served, but my guests wanted to stay silent, and nobody ever asked us how we enjoyed the food (or seemed to notice that the dish went almost completely untouched). I had the chicken, which was browned beautifully, but a little dry. My dining companions did not enjoy their meals, citing flavor profiles that were either too salt-forward to too sweet. The dessert courses we ordered were fantastic, so at least the meal ended on a nice note. Overall, Elements did not deliver a consistent level of service or food that we'd expected from a restaurant in its class, but everyone loved the view and the desserts. There are so many wonderful restaurants close to Elements, that I simply cannot recommend it.
Have dined here for many years (when in Phoenix). It’s always good and, most recently, was better than ever. Staff is very knowledgeable. Food is interesting and delicious. Excellent wine list. Room (and adjacent Jade Bar) is very pretty with excellent views.
I am impressed that I can actually meet friends here, chat, and enjoy our time in peace and quiet. All too many restaurants are so noisy that I have to shout to be heard. This food is good, service is outstanding, and the ambience is the best. Compared to True Kitchen, Chelsea's, and Four Peaks, Elements comes out with top scores for being a place to enjoy and be in the moment.
We had an amazing meal! Our waiter was phenomenal - he had detailed knowledge of the menu and even brought a tasting of a wine he thought would pair well with a starter I ordered (the foie gras with caramel sauce- one of the most perfect bites I have ever had!). The view is just as beautiful as the food. Can't wait to go back there!
The most incredible views! Book just before sunset so you can watch the sun go down with the backdrop of the mountains. Portions were generous - I had 2 appetizers and a dessert and was absolutely stuffed! I don't think I could have done an entree. The staff was very attentive. They told me the shishito peppers tended to be spicier in the winter months and kept bringing up small cups of milk to help relieve the spiciness, which I thought was incredibly thoughtful. I absolutely loved this special experience and look forward to returning the next time I'm in Arizona!
The food was fantastic and the service was very good; however, this is the second time( and last) that is have taken my wife here for a romantic special occasion only to be seated near folks that were very loud and drinking heavily! Disruptive to the entire area but no one suggested the people quiet down. If I wanted to take my wife to a noisy sports bar I wouldn’t pay Over $200 for a dinner for two
I will NOT go back to this restaurant because of these last two experiences- you want your wife to say how lovely the evening was rather than let’s go I have had enough of these loud people
