We were given a gift Certificate to elements. We enjoyed the experience and food very much and would definitely go again. It is awkward when you walk in initially. We walked in a door that said elements yet it was a bar of a different name. We had to ask a few people until we were directed to the reception desk and then taken upstairs. Overall, we liked it very much More
