REVIEWS OF elements IN Arizona

Francesca Fong

Amazing service, gorgeous views, delicious Asian fusion food. The reception staff accommodated our family as a walk-in with minimal wait time. Gary our server was thorough, intuitive, and knowledgeable about the menu. We didn't tell the staff we were celebrating something special, but he noticed our presents and at the end of our meal, gave us a cupcake in a cute box. Went above and beyond our expectations. Thanks elements for an unforgettable evening!


Elements restaurant is nestled inside the Sanctuary resort on Camelback mountain in Paradise Valley. It is known for its spectacular city views and hosted by Celebrity Chef and Food Network star Beau MacMillan. Upon arriving, we discovered that our reservations were not for that evening, but the next day. Happily the friendly and efficient hosts were able to seat us outside on the lower patio. Next time we’ll make sure to show up on the correct night to enjoy the more panoramic view of the city from inside; however, the view from the patio is also beautiful. Our add-ons to the $44 prix-fixe menu at Elements were the Shishito Peppers and a half dozen of Island Creek Oysters. The shishio’s were nice and hot in temperature. Normally I prefer them with more char, but they were so delicious with the soy caramel, crispy garlic, and sea salt that I barely noticed. The oysters were fresh and delicious with the vinegary mignonette sauce and touch of horseradish. My first selection from the restaurant week menu was the Elemental Corn Chowder with smoked potato, sweet corn, pepper relish, and bacon. The chowder was creamy without being too heavy and the smoked potato and relish added a nice contrast in texture and taste. The only way I could have been happier, was if there had been just a smidge more bacon. For an entree I choose the Grilled Flat Iron Steak with sweet potato rosti, charred napa cabbage, shallot confit, and hijiki peppercorn sauce. I asked for my steak rare with char and it was grilled to perfection. The sweet potato rosti was delicious and the steak paired with the shallot and peppercorn sauce was divine. Finally for dessert I choose the the Passion Fruit Cheesecake. Normally I’m not a huge fan of cheesecake, but I had the feeling this one would be special. Passion fruit cheesecake with toasted macadamia nut crust, vanilla bean meringues, and a black and white sesame lavosh. The tartness of the passion fruit was perfectly balanced by the sweetness of the cheesecake and the combination of textures was phenomenal! All of the staff at Elements were professional and friendly, the views of the city were spectacular, and the food was visually beautiful and excellent. I can’t wait for a return visit to Elements at Sanctuary!

Sarah Corradino

The staff and the atmosphere were beyond perfection! The food was delicious! I highly recommend the Salmon and pb bombe!


Excellent food experience with gorgeous outdoor scenic views -- I suggest inquiring about booths facing the sunset and arriving at the appropriate time. The short rib is to die for! Succulent sauce and flavorful wild rice!

Richard Dawson

The views here at night were beautiful but I hear that they are even better during the day. The food is absolutely worth the price and they feature a terrific wine selection. We will definitely be back!

Ghassan Abuelian

Chic and elegant dining experience. Definite recommendation. Went for AZ restaurant week (AZRW) The AZRW was ok. More of a tasting menu. The actual menu was so much better. Must go check the resort property that the restaurant sits in. There is a nice spa there as well. Unfortunately no coed area for couples.

Jeebers Nihil

Lied about AZ laws regarding a request to bring a celebratory bottle of champagne. Places with a BYOB lisence do allow you to bring a bottle of champagne with a fee, there's no need to lie to customers.

Michael Karegeannes

Everything about our night was perfect. The food was fantastic and the service was equally as good. My wife and I shared a wonderful time there about 20 years ago prior to our first child being born. And we now wanted to bring our three children and our wonderful friend Laura to experience the amazing time we remember and the sanctuary and elements is still an amazing place in 2019!!

Chris Patton

Good food and great view but didn't dig the vibe.

Irvin McDonald

Great atmosphere, excellent view and food. The customer service was outstanding in the bar. Very romantic and upscale. Love this place.

Diane Rath

We had a fabulous dinner with exceptional food. After paying the bill I asked for a coffee to go ( driving after wine) and was given a ‘to go cup’ for $6. I told the waiter I was surprised with the charge, he was very rude to us, with his reply, after giving a 20% tip. Just a sad way to end our diner experience at the Element.

Shawn Bell

Amazing views

Tyler Harned

I feel like what you get is very overpriced. I realize it sits ina resort and I should expect some premium, it's too much for the quality of food. With that said, the breakfast quasadilla was really good and a large portion.

Roxanne Schindler

Best food portions were enough for me


Everything you would expect from a high-end resort nestled in Paradise Valley. Relaxing atmosphere and wonderful dining experience with very attentive wait staff.

Alex Telidis

Great views and good drinks.

Lixiao Zhao

So bad. I have reserved at 8:15pm, and when I come to the restaurant at 8:10pm, I still waiting like 40mins to get a table. Bad experience.

Beth Kitts

Wow! What can I say? Can't beat the view and really delicious dishes. Had the bacon wrapped filet with a potato pancake, goat cheese fritter and grilled asparagus. Was delicious! Started with pot stickers and salad and then finished with a peanut butter bomb. Just an awesome meal, will definitively be back.

Stacy Miller

I love this place! It's my favorite restaurant for any special occasion.

Karen Meredith

Wonderful service! Shrimp bento box was a bit salty.

Ana Tapia

Excellent food and service with stunning views. The hotel is located at the Sanctuary Resort and it has views overlooking the Camelback Mountain. Perfect for a special ocassion. The food has an asian vibe, and they have vegetarian and vegan options as well. Their wine list is extensive and the desserts delicious.

Shane Piper

Such a great experience! If the food was bad we still go because the service was so incredible. Luckily the food is incredible and a great place for any special occasion or just a nice dinner. A must go!

Katie Paulsen

Definitely worth the view at sunset. Entrees were amazing.

Heather Kay

Had a great brunch and enjoy the beautiful views of Paradise Valley

Josh Moe

Absolutely amazing, the restaurant itself is perfect t and I made a reservation only about 2 weeks out for my wife's birthday but they were able to accommodate us on the patio! Right at sunset, it was perfect. The waiter, Michael, was extremely friendly and courteous. Prompt with our orders and not pushy. Exactly what you hope for with a nicer establishment. The food was to die for, I had the salmon that was exaclty how I ordered, medium, the wife had the veal and it just fell apart, was absolutely delicious. Couldn't have asked for a better night out and the dinner was perfect. Highly Recommend this place and definitely recommend the patio. If at all possible ask for Michael. Thank you Elements for making my wife's birthday dinner something we will remember for a long time!

John M

Great service. Fantastic food.

Sam Ile

Great spot with spectacular views and amazing service. Cuisine is spectacular! Tuna Tartar is incredible and so is the miso salmon!

Shawn Thompson

Hands down, one of the top 3 fillets I've ever eaten. Would recommend to anyone. Impeccable service and style. Wait staff was incredible.

Jon Neace

Stunning views, great to watch the sunset, food was good too

Thomas Waterfield

We had high expectations for our first visit to Elements. All service; from reservation, valet, greeting, tableside - was superb. The physical setting (inside) slightly less than anticipated. Food all prepared well and timely, some specific ingredients or featured offerings, also less than hoped for. Can still recommend it to friends. Enjoy!

Lisa Cochran

My Korean BBQ was good and the lobster so yummy

Merry Yen

Lovely dinner with a lovely view. Great flavors and textures. Highly recommended.

Greg M

Service was awful. Had to ask another waitress for help as ours never came around. She was too busy talking behind the bar instead of attending to her customers. Very rude.

Jane Wofford

Always excellent

Deb Harvey

I was disappointed, service was ok and food was ok. Supposed to be fine cuisine, iron chef worthy. The price was in line with fine cuisine, the food - not so much. My bread was hard, the tomatoes were mushie, Halibut was ok and potatoes were simply ok.


Our experience was amazing, from the valet to the hostess and server they were great. Friendly impeccable service, loved it. Now for the view, nestled in camel back one of the most beautiful views I've ever seen. Worth the ticket price.

johnny parvani

Breathtaking view. The pork chops are delicious, but be sure to share it. Gigantic portion!!!

Jessi Dutton

We went here to celebrate my husbands birthday and it was an amazing evening, beautiful views, amazing food and the service was top notch the best you could ask for. Will be coming back here again...

David Chasten

Wow. Simply the best service, views, food and ambiance. Sean was our fantastic server for this evening. He made our night. You've got to try visiting here at least once in your life. Of course at different times of the day to check out all the views and different fare of foods throughout the seasons.

Dana Dean

Amazing night... Met at the door and warm welcome from Chef Beau MacMillan followed by great service from Michael with menu and wine selection. The sunset was a great back drop and the food was amazing! Look forward to going back soon alone or with any visitors who come my way.

Taylor Clancey

Fantastic food. Fantastic service.

Alden Anderson

Every time... Always something new, and it's always the best

Carrie Gallagher

Highly recommend the short ribs!

Bitcoin CFO

Fabulous service and food

Michelle Gonzales

Intimate wine dinner. Delicious food and amazing ambiance. Well done

Will Isherwood

Came for lunch. Our waitress was great. The table bread was great. We had the steak fritters and the swordfish special. Both were so absolutely fabulous. But the lemon semifreddo put them to shame.

Matt Treadwell

Absolutely amazing food. Love the atmosphere and friendly staff. Highly recommend the Korean BBQ Short Ribs and Fiery Calamari. Views from the deck at sunset are spectacular.

David Greenberg

Stunning sunset view, amazing food and magnificent service.

Emmalee Fee

They didn't have anything vegan on the menu but the chef and staff put together a delicious entree for me!

Carolyn Pierson

Amazing food and vibe.

Shonte Evonne

I visited this beautiful restaurant for lunch on a Groupon deal my Son purchased for my Birthday. Nestled in the mountains the view was amazing and definitely photo worthy.The staff was extremely friendly and attentive from the Valet to the Server and manager who came by to say hello and welcome us. The food was delicious and we enjoyed a few of their speciality drinks. This place is great for a quiet elegant brunch or upscale dining. I would definitely go back and make a day of it with a spa visit.

Wendy Kelman

Had the veal osso bucco which was fabulous.

Robin Fitch

Beautiful venue and delicious food. The presentation was lovely and our waitress, Jennifer, was excellent.

John Crawford

OMG! THE FOOD, THE VIEW, THE ATMOSPHERE! Highly recommended if you like being treated well. Romantic! Reservations a must. After dinner refreshments in the bar a must do.

D.J. Diebold

When you're in the mood to treat yourself, this is the place to go. We usually go there for breakfast as we are locals and they never, ever disappoint. Excellent service and outstanding food. Yes it's a little pricey but we're all going to die soon, LOL.

Alan Barone

Very elegant establishment. The staff was very attentive and friendly.

jennifer allen

Food tasty and good portions. Lovely view. Attentive team made gathering seamless for table of seven.

Jonell Conn

Gorgeous views, great cocktails and delicious food.

Susan Wilson

Great service indeed however food is different story. There is a big difference between expensive and over-priced. The latter applies here. Went there for birthday and ordered steak frittes. Asked for med to med rare. Came out wellldone. Sent it back for 2nd chance only to have it barely med. For a $27 lunch entree i expected more or at least what i requested. Dont waste your money here...there are numerous other options here in the valley.

tracy granfors

This place is always beyond excellent!!

James Thorpe

Elements was amazing! We went there to celebrate my date's birthday. The ambience was spectacular and we sat outside where the view was breathtaking. I ordered the Beet and Citrus Salad which was delicious. For our entree, we shared the salmon which was cooked to perfection and it was just the right amount. We finished with the PB Bombe dessert which was delicious and the presentation of all of the courses were great. I would recommend anyone to dine there, sit outside under the heaters or with a blanket (which is provided), and enjoy the amazing view. Then, listen to some live music in the lounge area, which was entertaining as well.

Randall Suzuka

Food was fantastic! Great ambiance.


3/31 1530-2000 If you are going to spend this amount of money go to Kai. Different Point of View is even slightly better than elements. I think this restaurant tries to mimic a high end restaurant but flounders. The servers although kind were reading off a card and their clothes wrinkled. NORMALLY this is stupid to complain about but for a place that boasts of its ambience and asks you to pay the price you can’t have things like that. From the valet barely able to look you in the eye and the ability to wish you a good evening to serving staff saying thank you I don’t believe this place is good. The food is descent. My bacon wrapped beef was good but for 55 bucks 6 oz of steak is not appropriate even if you toss 3 asparagus and a goat cheese filled hot pocket inside. Overall, if your looking for something similar with better service and price go to Different Point of View and if your willing to spend a little more and be treated to a food presentation with personalized service go to Kai


Food, drinks, view, atmosphere, and the service are all 5 stars. If your pallet has traveled to some of the tastiest countries like mine, then I'm sure you'll agree It's some of the best tasting food you will ever have.

candice g

The location and view is beautiful and the food is even better. The staff is extremely attentive and kind. Will definitely be back!

Ryan Unger

I visited elements for an anniversary dinner. The staff was awesome and the food was great. We had a table facing the window and had a great view of the mountains and surrounding area. The pork chop was done perfectly. I will definitely keep this place in mind for future special events.

Jon Brinton

Incredible food with amazing views!

mike boston

Disliked my waiter.


Some of the best service I have ever received. View is outstanding. Location is outstanding. Menu is diverse. Food is portioned well and is delicious.

Dos Diletantes

Absolutely best scenery in the valley! Asian fusion cuisine.

jerryj K

The chicken and Japanese tofu box were great, liked the fresh cucumber salad. Beautiful views and friendly service.

Sean Harvey

This restaurant's standards and quality have diminished significantly in the last year or so. I no longer recommend this place as one of Phoenix premier eateries.

Allison Weiss

Beautiful views, good service and great lunch! What more can you ask for?

Sean Cawley

Parents had 42 wedding anniversary this evening at Elements on a Monday, June 17, 2019 but learned when they were seated of a half price special on all wines that was promoted by hostess when seated was not honored by the general manager. No one ever stated it was for bottle of wine 200 dollars or less. My parents order a bottle (as it was just the two of them vs the entire family who dines their frequently since it opened) that was 250 dollars.No one ever stated the promotion was for bottle of wine under 200 dollars. not knowing until the bill arrived after they had dinner. Not a good look for fine dining I normally recommend and we frequent in the valley. The general manager blew it when he offered 10 percent off the 250 bottle of wine when my parents mentioned they thought there was an error in the bill at the end of dinner. The general manager stated he would mention it at his next employee meeting to be more clear and bring up the dollar amount eligible (it was not) that they need to share that full bottles under 200 apply...they did not! The general manager further stated it was on their website. My parents were there to enjoy a nice dinner for their anniversary and never look at the website and would not have order the bottle to begin with had not the employees promoted it when seated and during dinner.Would have changed to a glass for each vs a bottle! Bait and switch...not a good look for Elements.

Sabrina Sojourner

Great fish and staff!

KongFei Sin

Great food and great view, best for dating dinner.

Tina Clemmons

We had the best table facing Paradise Valley and the food was absolutely delicious! We had breakfast every morning. Service was great!

Todd Mowen

We had a wonderful dinner here with our friend. Delicious meal! We all really enjoyed the atmosphere and the views! Waitress was very kind. After we walked the beautiful property! We will be back!

Irene Templeman

Excellent service , small but high quality menu not overly priced. Amazing views Really helpful staff. Didn't like the gratuaty being added for small parties. Didn't notice on the first bill and paid it again plus 20% on the original gratuaty - was not happy.

vito chiarito

Great views and really good food. Perfect for a date with the wife...

Talia Green

We celebrated our anniversary here and it was a very special occasion. The food was wonderful and the staff were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Our drinks were always full and the service was impeccable. I would definitely recommend this place. Especially for any sort of special occasion or celebration! I also love how their menu is always changing!

Jacob Donaldson

My goodness! The double bone in pork chop was next level and our server shawn did a fabulous job. Twas a night to remember.

Matthew John Whitney

Excellent food, service, and view. Chef Beau is one of the best in town. The fried chicken was a genius Japanese approach to an American summer classic.

Nick Corradino

Perfect evening for my wife's birthday. Quiet, comfortable, and beautiful scenery. Service was prompt polite and everything you'd expect from a high end restaurant/resort. We went for restaurant week but will be back for a normal dinner, it was that good.

Steve A

Outstanding experience! Atmosphere and view in the bar is outstanding! See pano pic of the view, amazing!! We watched a Stanley Cup game on the tv (and tried to contain ourselves when our team scored) and really enjoyed the outstanding happy hour food and drinks and great deals! Seriously, for a place this high-end, the happy hour deals are phenomenal and unexpected! But, the real kicker here was the phenomenal bar service from our awesome bartender! She rocked!! We migrated to the dining room after the game was over and the sun headset and enjoyed a phenomenal meal with food that is clearly made from the highest quality ingredients by expert chefs and served by attentive and friendly wait staff. The atmosphere in the restaurant is extremely comfortable! It is warm and dark and has amazing views! Value: overall, the value in the restaurant is very good, you definitely won't leave hungry, portions are large, quality is premium and service is great. This is truly a 4 1/2 star restaurant in my opinion and I highly recommend it. If we lived closer, it would be a regular spot for happy hour and celebratory dinners. Should you try it? Absolutely!

Rick Finnegan

Beautiful views and atmosphere, food very good but not excellent. Very pricey.

Joan Bowyer

Beautiful views, great service, good food

Cindy D

Excellent service and delicious food. Salmon was prepared as requested, and appetizers were very good.

Rob Wininger

Exceptional in every way. Make your reservation asap! The Chilean Sea Bass was second to none.

Sophie Battershell

Less than average service and inattentive when seating for a special occasion. The food is good but not worth the price point. I went for my birthday dinner and I wished I had gone to one of the several upscale restaurants somewhere else in Scottsdale. Also, the server tried to rush us. The manager never took any action regarding my feedback and didn’t contact me back regarding my concerns. The experience just wasn’t all that and it should’ve been better. They also charge for your birthday dessert LOL. They definitely need to step it up.

Shlomo Tuchband

Amazing food. Great view and ambiance. This place has it all. It's nestled in the hill with stunning surroundings. Pricey but well worth it.

Kevin Preston

Elements makes for the best romantic evening you can have in the city of Scottsdale. The food is only complimented by the atmosphere and beautiful views of the valley. The menu is seasonal so if you have been there once you will always have something new to try. The ingredients are fresh and the wait staff will take care of every need you should request. This restaurant comes highly recommended by critics statewide and you are guaranteed a night of your life.

Ed Carmines

Great place for happy hour. Beautiful sunset view.

Michael Pawloski

Very high class place and the staff treats it like such. So much so that my family, who is not upscale as at all, would ask obviously rude questions about menu changes and the staff would get annoyed because they know we wanted to change something that was intended for the whole dish. I think it's an appropriate reaction for a place like this. Also all the food was very tasty and we'll put together. I recommend the pork chops and salmon. Very good.

Daniel Ciucci

The finesse of these environs and delectable delights is incomparable to every other destination to which I have been in Phoenix. Wait staff is very attentive. Food is wonderfully thought through. The head chef seems to be out of town often but the sous chefs are more than competent at their craft. 8 page wine list. One can ask for a recommendation if one is a novice. Shishito petters are a daring appetizer as one in six are quite spicy. Escargot pot pie is an adventurous comfort food. Gold leaf accompanies a number of desserts.

Web Bromley

Fantastic Breakfast

Jennie Gilbert

Elements never disappoints. The atmosphere is relaxing and elegant, the service is unobtrusive but helpful and the food is a real treat while still being able to make healthy choices. Go there. Make memories. Enjoy the views of beautiful Arizona. Eat well

Shawn Jaspers

Great food. Awesome atmosphere. Friendly staff

sandy mart

Had the best dinner... Best steak I've ever tasted

Michelle Johnson

The food was amazing, great ambiance and view, perfect for special occasions or date night. Unfortunately, I don't recommend their Mule Cocktail, we order Jameson Mules to start our dinner, they were in fact not Jameson but rather Vodka. No problem with it being Vodka, however it still was not a great tasting cocktail. We brought it to the attention of our server. He insisted they were Jameson. No big deal, we ordered wine instead at his recommendation. We loved his recommendation! Our new favorite red wine!! Upon receiving our check, the mule was infact rang in as a Moscow (Vodka) Mule. Otherwise, our evening was perfect and we look forward to another reason to celebrate there!

Diane Gruel

I wouldn't go back. My husband had to return his pork chop, their signature entree because he couldn't even cut it. Same for the lady next to us. Went for bd and the view and it is lovely, but overall a no for us.

Catherine Conti

Great service and food. Views are beautiful!

Shareen Masri

Good food. Fantastic views and the weather was beautiful, even for July !

ernie copeland

Pretty expensive, but one of those places where the food is above and beyond your wildest imagination and the service is outstanding! I had the Swordfish and they accommodated my food allergies. The flavor was spot on. My wife had this giant Filet of beef and even though it was at least two inches thick, it was perfectly seared and cooked exactly to order. My son-in-law had the two bone pork chop with brussel sprouts. It was also perfect. My daughter had the elemental, I believe it is called, (chef's special) and it was sea bass cooked with a beautiful glaze and and served over a beautiful black rice. It was great ambiance and the praying monk on Camelback was the view from our dining room. Amazing night.

Megan DeSola

Delicious food, incredible sunset views and wonderful staff. Highly recommend!

Emily Francona

Not normally a fan of Cobb salad, this one was the very BEST! Chef Beau assembles the freshest, tastiest ingredients, then dresses them lightly with the most divine dressing. For someone who does not care much for Cobb salad, this was a revelation. Not to mention the serene setting and excellent service! A MUST stop anytime we are in the area.

Mike Evers

Chef Beau highlighting an @MeatsByLinz Strip Steak. Chicago, NY and Arizona-> bringing it all together. Awesome Valley Views. Good energy.

Kareem Raad

For conflict of interest purposes I will start this review by noting that a friend of mine works here and that is how we were able to obtain reservations, that being said I can objectively rave about this place after having recently proposed to my now fiance here and having had truly the experience of a lifetime. As has been mentioned previously by other reviews the service was impeccable, and when the time came to present the ring the staff coordinated with me to make that moment perfect. Of course the food--course after course of the most mind-blowing appetizers prior to the main dish and incredible wine masterfully paired--not that I claim to be any sort of expert in the wine arena, but it was perfect. I would highly recommend this venue for your next special night out, the experience we had was nothing less than spectacular.

Jeffrey J. Quatrone E.A.

Definitely a perfect place for a special occasion. Went for my mom's , 80th birthday celebration. I had the Vietnamese shrimp salad, omlet ordered, all did was good

Isabela Huin

Excellent food and service, probably one of the best restaurants in the area.

Warren LeGarie

A place that you're already making plans to return while you're still's that good: both food and service

Barbara Blackmon

My sweet friend took me to the Elements for lunch on Saturday September 15th! She and I both really enjoyed every single thing about our dining experiences there. Neither of us had ever eaten at the the Elements.The ambience is fabulous with beautiful views. The food was excellent because it was fresh and perfectly seasoned. Our waiter Taylor was very friendly, attentive, and professional. If you are looking for a high class and elegant place to dine for a special occasion or just because then Elements at the Sanctuary Resort on Camelback will be a perfect choice. My only minor and slight suggestion/request would be to add some soft lunch or dinner music. This would further add to the ambience and appeal to diner's sense of hearing as well as to taste, sight, and smell. I must say, however, that even without music I am still looking forward to returning to Elements again in the near future.

steven garcia

One of my favorite spots

Sonja Ristau

Staff was very friendly and polite. Food was sub par, the potato chips were a little over done, the chicken in my chicken sandwich was dry and didn't fill the bread. It was small dry pieces that weren't enough to cover the whole sandwich. The hummus was flavorless, and the pita bread was dry. The service was amazing though, the server was very personable and friendly. Not pushy and was attentive. The hostess was kind of snobby and wasn't at the host stand when I arrived, a bus boy had to go find her and when she came out she looked as though we were interrupting her and seemed annoyed.

michael williams

Incredible meal and chef Beau made a special dish (lobster ravioli) for my woman. Couldn't ask for anything more. We can't wait to go back!

David Brown

Still the Best Restaurant in the Valley. Service is number one. They will treat you like the King and Queen you are. Food is so damn good. You wonder why you go anywhere else. Don't forget the Valet too. Only the best people work here. Also.. What ever your wearing is perfect. No really you look Amazing. So call them right meow. Go today; tonight. No that other place is not as good. Trust me. Go to Elements. They will show you Love. And bring you the best food. What more could one want?? Psst. They make good drinks too.

Elly Q

Unbelievably tasty! Couldn't stop saying "mmm!" while I ate my breakfast. Gergeous views of the AZ desert landscape, plus excellent service.

Nicole Denton

Always an amazing experience at elements! The price point is a little higher than many other spots in the Valley, but this is our go-to special occasion dinner and a place we recommend to pretty much everyone who comes to visit. The service is top notch, the views are incredible, and the food is even better. I've never had something I didn't like.

Christopher Serrone

Fine dining at its best. This restaurant is a little known Jewel snuggled in the North Face of the Camelback Mountain in Paradise Valley Arizona. If you are into fine dining this is a must on the list of Scottsdale fine dining experiences.

Molly Hunt

WOW WOW WOW!!! My kids took me here for Mother’s Day and I gotta day this was the best experience that I’ve EVER had for brunch. The service was incredible, the food melted in the mouth, the patio was amazing. There is truly nothing else to say about this place. This was a great dining experience. I am blessed, Happy Mother’s Day.

Willie & Maria Hamblin

I visited the Element today ( August 15,2019 ) for my birthday and the food was amazing along with the drinks. Julio my server was very patient with me and Ashley the manager was very polite and cheerful. They made my day even more special than it is.

David Hogg

The Concierge and Reservation staff were very extremely helpful in assisting me to arrange a fantastic evening for my son and his new fiance. The evening is one they will always remember as special Thanks to your whole team for working with me to make that happen ( the flowers the Concierge suggested were a huge hit, thanks again )

Michael Pavone

Life changing Pork Chop meal. None like it on this planet. Atmosphere is beautiful and the staff are on point at all stations.

Snoop Dogg

Romantic place. Love the view.Top

Tyler Hill

Great menu, very good service, reasonably priced. My steak was very over done and the table beside us also had issues with their meat preparation. The waiter did not return in time to express my discontent so I ate it. I did tell him that it was about 40 degrees over done when he did return and despite my displeasure I was still charged full price ($78) without any compensatory measures. I would not normally mind, but when spending several hundred of dollars on dinner I would expect better execution.

Dave K

Food and service were excellent. Seating location was awkward, not comfortable and not special for the 25th anniversary that we were celebrating. Avoid the raised triangular tables in the back of the restaurant especially if looking for a romantic location.

Mitchell Barnhart

Food made the experience but our waiter seemed more engaged with another table, which I understand. Our overall experience was very good and i would come back again.

Scott Riffenburg

Amazing staff, food, and view. Got to meet Cheif Beu and chat. I will be going back, took advantage of the Restaurant Week option.

Richard Mahrle

Food I quite good. The setting and the view are to die for, but it is expensive.

Alison Dorr

Ricky's service was outstanding. Love the view and the food was delish.

Alex F

Love the ambiance , great views , perfect time is sunset or evem late night as well! Different seating options available including inside or outside Calamari is great as well as the artisan board Drinks are great!

Tom Kusnierek

Wonderful view. Sea bass special is outstanding. So are the soups.

Kathy Rice

Amazing service and menus

Bethany Bice-Wilcox

Great diyd. Wonderful staff

Jacque Doyle

Exquisite & delicious. Gorgeous sunset. A bit too noisy or us by our departure. Glad we arrived early.

Adrian R. Palmer

We ate here for my girlfriend's birthday dinner, while staying at the resort. There hostess greeted us with a smile and friendliness. They also wished her a happy birthday upon greeting us. A wonderful personal touch. Our server was fantastic and friendly. The food was delicious! Her filet mignon was perfect. I had the daily special of fish and it was great. Dessert was the salted caramel lava cake and a pb bombe. Both were yummy. This is an expensive restaurant yes, but the service, view, ambience and food is well worth it. You are paying for the entire experience and it is well worth it. We will come again in the future!

DeGolden L. Williams Jr.

My wife and I visited this restaurant for lunch on July 26th. The experience was 5 Stars from start to finish. The manager, Ray, introduced himself and welcomed us to Elements. Later, he stopped by our table to check up on how we were enjoying ourselves. Our server was Jose. Ask for him when you visit. What a kind gentleman. His helper was Fernando, also great. BTW: the food was excellent and reasonably priced considering the excellent quality and portion size. We live in Pinal County and were in Scottsdale on business. You can bet we'll return the next time we're in town. If you live nearby you're truly blessed. DW/SW

Linda Hernandez

Elements is absolutely fantastic. The views and food are amazing. My wife and I had the Mac and Cheese (side), the Brussels Sprouts (side), and the Korean BBQ short ribs. We split the meal because we had an appetizer at Jade Bar before dinner and we were full! The food was amazing that night and the next day. If you are looking for a great meal with fantastic views...Elements is a great option.

was looking forward to amazing evening celebrating my wife's bday. we waited at our table 20 minutes before our waiter came- ordered drinks and brought the wrong cocktail and charged the higher price. ordered the Opah and Korean short ribs. the shortribs were great but the Opah was dry. Used to go the restaurant a lot and have sent many there but very disappointed this time!

The wife and I went here for lunch today and loved it. My wife had the sesame crusted tofu which she said was amazing, the tofu was large and delightful along with the rice/sauce. I had the chicken sandwich as I can't help myself always trying a new chicken sandwich. That baby was full of flavor and amazing. Sauce, peppers, and cheese gave it wonderful touch. The view was splendid. Defiantly worth coming to again especially when we stay there next time.

Their food is absolutely incredible. It is American Asian fusion and all ingredients are locally sourced (farm to table). On top of the fine dining, the view is breathtaking. I can't wait to go back. 5 stars.

Nice view, food and service

Had an exceptional experience. Basil Lemonade is worth a repeat glass. Chef Beau....scallop and risotto dish was on point! Impeccable service and surroundings. It's truly representative of the region.

Not the best but good food

We went for Christmas dinner. I tend to lower expectations for prix fixe menus, but there was no need in this case. I had the truffle ravioli to start. It was not terribly truffley, but delicious none the less. My swordfish was the star of the show. The crust was sweet, savory, crusty and overall a perfectly balanced dish. If you are able, definitely make your reservation at sunset. The view alone is worth the price.

Amazing views, people and cocktails.

Amazing location/view. Great ambiance. Friendly wait staff. Small portions but amazing flavors! Well-seasoned food. We did this for our 15th anniversary...

Paula Trush

Went for lunch. The crispy chicken thigh entree was superb! Chicken sandwich paled in comparison. Beautiful view of the mountains while dining. Overall service and friendliness was okay.

Thomas M. Manson

Killer food, sauces, and service. Little pricey, but not bad.
