great food a little pricey on drinks

The food was very good and reasonably priced -but we had a few glasses ( 6 ) of the local beer and got dinged about $45.00 plus tax and tip for that which kind of soured the experience a bit

Decided to try the buffet breakfast at this highly recommended location but disappointed. I expect we arrived at a bad time (10:45am) as most food stations in buffet empty or nearly empty. We were promised that the food was going to be refreshed shortly but 30+ minutes later only the juice was topped up. Ordered an omelet from cook who... More

The last time I ate at Elements for dinner, the menu was rather interesting--but now it has changed to focus on pub grub: burgers, fish and chips, mac and cheese. I ate here with a colleague on Thursday and we both chose the 5 oz sirloin with fries. It was delicious. Good service from Chris.

This is located in the Westin hotel and where we had breakfast. Waitress strongly suggested the buffet for $18.00. Had a custom made omelet bar with a pleasant young chef.

I always love when a restaurant gets it right. Elements is within the Westin Hotel in downtown Halifax. Sometimes restaurants in hotels can be cursed as they have a captured audience.... their audience should be happy to be captured by Elements. They don't have a huge menu but everything is fresh, well thought out and flavourful. The service was top... More

I will begin by saying the service here was fine but the food was very disappointing considering the price. I sometimes try to rationalize an excuse for a bad meal but this time I simply can't. One entree was spaghetti at $21 and that was all it was. Whole wheat spaghetti with some spinach and tomatoes and other veg. No... More
