Exceptional wine list and amazing food. Great atmosphere and staff. Excellent location as well. Take a stroll around Main St or the gazebo on your way out. Charm is everywhere.

I travel to VA every year and stay in Front Royal . I love this place as it is close to Holiday Inn, and has great food, atmosphere and decent wine list.

Great service, we had an amazing cheese board and good quality wine. The main courses looked amazing but we were just looking for a light snack which we were able to have here

Element is one of our home-town, go-to restaurants. We probably visit about once a month. I almost always have the scallops and have never been disappointed in how perfectly they are cooked...their scallops have become the standard by which I judge seafood restaurants in Massachusetts!...More

The endless creativity of Chef-Owners David and Stacy Gedney has produced an excellent bistro alternative to the commitment of fine dining restaurants and to the ennui of the countless chain restaurants. Element offers a variety of sapid dishes for lunch and dinner in a relaxed and modern atmosphere, augmented by a full bar, beers on draft and an elegant wine list. We adjust the menu regularly to keep our ingredients fresh and our choices interesting.
