We are at Elements during our stay, and it was amazing! The service was fabulous and the menu was a little daunting (looked very gourmet) BUT the waiter explained the offerings well and our food was impeccable. Highly recommend the steak

The food here was very good but be prepared to pay some decent money for it. We ate here on a Friday night and the wait staff seemed a bit overwhelmed. The service was fairly slow but everyone was nice and we took our time enjoying the view.
