Elements Restaurant and Lounge · May 17, 01:24 AM

I have had mostly positive experiences here and I will recommend it to everyone and continue to visit once a month or so, maybe twice.

However, for a dining restaurant… the waitresses often lack the finesse and refinement that you would expect for the prices they charge. i.e. properly presenting, opening and serving a bottle of wine…not a hard thing to do and the management should spend more time training the young ladies at this.

BTW. The wait staff are all young females dressed in petite black uniforms ala short skirts.

Back to the point, this place wants to be classy, and has the potential to be classy, but not the refinment or experience to do so. Regardless, it is a fair fine dining experience, and they make an excellent excellent steak (have them with the sweet potato fries). The sushi last time was quite immature and added to the lack of experience and attention to details, but at least they have sushi.

The setting is very relaxing and makes even the most income restricted feel elite.

Make sure to ask for the most current wine list (i have been told a number of times that the wine i selected is not available). The Rock Salt Ribs are great in the lounge with a draft. The Moosehead on tap has been flat for the last two weeks. There is no paying with yout ATM card, but there is a machine that will charge you 1.50 so you can draw cash and pay your bill with that.

I think the owners went just far enough in their standards to pass, but do not exceed to the top of the class. I’ll give them 3 stars, actually 2.5 because the waitress splashed wine on me last time and the wine glass wasn’t rinsed and tasted of soap.

From the beginning, my expectations walking into this place was high, and I guess that is why I am so critical of it. Regardless, it is a worth dining here, just don’t get your hopes up about the sushi.
