    Tough start as they stumbled on a mocktail that was presented twice as a thick sugary beverage. We ultimately opted for sparkling water with bitters and happily moved on to a beet and a yellowtail crudo salad, fresh and beautifully presented. Then, mussels in a rich, yet light, sauce and perfectly prepared scallops. We ordered a side of carrots because of the preparation, but they were served without the promised and anticipated chimichurri and instead were just swimming in fat.

    We went to elements for our Anniversary and specifically asked for a table viewing the camel and they originally seated us in a room with no view. We asked to be reseated which they did in a room with numerous empty tables with the view we requested. The food was very poor. My wife had the scallops which were undercooked and I had a filet which was cut wrong and made it hard to eat. I originally chose the pork tenderloin but the waiter said that was no longer available and the option was a pork chop which is always tough. My wife and I both commented to each other that we could have cooked the meal much better than their chef. After dinner, we chose the sorbet desert and one of the sorbets was very hard whereas the other was very good. They did not even comp us the desert for our anniversary. The waiter was awesome!! He brought out a second potato dish for my wife as she is lactose intolerant.

    Excellent service and beautiful location. This would be a five star review but my food was not good. My ribeye had some nasty overly lemony butter sauce on it that over powered the nice cut of meat. The whipped potatoes were strange and seemed to consist more of butter than potato. My husband and friend enjoyed their filet and scallops. As it was my birthday I was disappointed. The restaurant gave me a nice birthday dessert which I appreciated.

    We had reservations with a special request, but the hostess assumed we were a different couple and the request was not passed along. She realized this after seating us and it led to an awkward shuffle. The server was congenial and kind, but the service was VERY slow and inaccurate. He delivered the wrong cocktail (no big deal). I pointed out 3 times at 3 different table visits that I think it's the wrong drink--each time he told me he thinks it's the right one--until finally I had to exclaim, "bourbon mixed with red wine does not have a clear yellow color my dude." He finally apologized and admitted the mistake, but then I had to remind him AGAIN at the NEXT table visit to bring out the correct drink. I ordered it as soon as we sat down to eat but it was delivered as a digestif. What added insult to injury is that he still charged us for the incorrect drink. To his credit, he did offer a general discount after blaming the overall slow service on the restaurant being understaffed. Our companion tables were served efficiently, so I think we were just forgotten about as we were this gentleman's only table outside. The food was tremendous and the drinks were great. It's not quite fine dining but an upscale step below. I wish the service matched. We ordered at the first opportunity, paid and left at the first opportunity, and dinner still lasted 1 hour and 45 minutes.

    After pre-paying $300 for Easter Brunch for 2 people that did not include a complimentary mimosa, let alone a cup of coffee, we were ushered to a lifeless back room facing a wall away from the view that we were expecting to enjoy. The service was beyond slow, (the mimosa I ordered before the entree was served did not arrive until we were presented with the bill), the food was marginal (the corn chowder was great, the short rib pretty good, the bananas foster was a bland, heavy blob). The ambience was so disappointing for what we were expecting to be a sublime experience. No music, people in sweats, and flies continually buzzing around our table, and not a hint of Easter. Almost $400 down drain for a truly disappointing, irritating experience.

    Well, it was not my wife’s birthday celebration I had expected it to be. We had gone to the sanctuary 15+ years ago and remembered it being just a phenomenal place. Today not so much. The drinks were bitter, the couple of appetizers that we chose were strange and OK. And both of our main entrées were just average and not really up to the standard for the prices we were paying. The facility is still absolutely beautiful. However, we counted at least seven large flies on the inside of the window in front of the booth we were sitting in. Having flies on the inside of the window was a little concerning. The waiter was very nice and took off the two main salads from our bill. The staff was great. Service was a little slow, but I understand it was the end of their day. I might come back sometime just to see if anything has changed, but I honestly have to say I was very disappointed.

    Phenomenal meal from the appetizer to the dessert! Every bite was absolutely scrumptious. CJ provided stellar service and we couldn’t have asked for more. You won’t be disappointed.

    Everyone at Elements is kind. Always. And I very much appreciate that it is quiet enough to have a deep conversation there. Today we had a nice table and our server was pleasant. The food was disappointingly average though. I got the burger without the bun and the Caesar side salad and we got the truffle fries for the table. Everything was poorly seasoned. The fries were not good and the truffle oil on them tasted off. My burger was very over and very under seasoned. The salad too was lacking flavor and salt and I’m really not a fan of whole leaves of lettuce in a salad that I must cut into manageable pieces. I ate until I was satisfied and left the rest.

    First time for me and my guest had been there before. The waiter and staff went above in their attentiveness to our needs. Truly a very satisfying experience and will come again.

    Menu changed significantly from the past “Asian influenced” feel. Was always expensive but seems like a bit over the top now. $100 crab legs was literally 3 pieces of meat.

    This is a special place to celebrate occasions or to just experience the beauty of Scottsdale. If you get a table outside, you are treated to wonderful views of the Sonoran sunset. Service is topnotch - hostesses are welcoming and helpful and the servers are attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. The food is excellent-scallops and pork tenderloin were perfectly cooked and complemented by tasty sauces that didn't overpower the proteins. Delicious and appropriately hot real mashed potatoes swimming in butter were the perfect side. Overall, this is a terrific dining experience that you won't forget!

    Sat outside. Nice day, but inside is higher, and has better view. Server was very nice. Food wasn’t bad, but nothing outstanding.

    We had not been at ‘elements’ at the Sanctuary Resort for some time. Remembering it for its excellence, we determined to return and did so on the evening of March 26. We arrived before our reservation time, checked in with the hostess who suggested we wait in the bar. Every table in the bar area was taken, and the line around the bar itself was three deep. So we left to wait in the lounge, watching the clientele enter and leave the restaurant. Their on-line site suggested dress to be resort casual, and we dressed appropriately. Most others were not near appropriate, some in shorts and flips. We were shown to our table and had to squeeze past others to reach it. Patrons were seated so close together that the conversation of the table was forced on you. The noise level in the dining room was extremely high. The waiter was a kind young man with what seemed to be no training whatsoever as the evening progressed. Requested items such as ice or bread were forgotten. And the gentleman roaming the room asking us how we were doing was not about to hear what we had to say. We are from an age of ‘couth’. Management should require higher standards, unless these new standards are designed to be just what they desire. The food was beyond wonderful. It is a shame it had to be served in such a totally disturbing, disfunctional atmosphere. The $277 bill for the two of us was worth the meal but not nearly worth the experience. We will not return.

    It is a nice room. The views are dramatic. The service was good. The gnudi was nice, a bit large and not delicate but tasty. The foiegras as nicely presented. The iberico tenderloin was a bit overcooked for me. Maybe it was souvide as there was no color to it? It tasted good. The scallops were good not great especially for the price. The foccacia was fun, a bit dense and difficult to cut due to the crust. Its a pretty spendy dinner. Overall it was good. It would be nice to have more plant based options and mocktails.
