Visiting Halifax for a week, I tried a number of restaurants. The menu was varied, and the food tasty, but nothing really special. There are so many amazing culinary experiences in Halifax I was hoping the restaurant attached to a major hotel would be one of them. It was fine, just regular - as was the service.

Hubs & I enjoyed V-Day 2014 at Elements and it may have been our best meal there ever. Great food, great wine and great service (Brianna). Though not the best visual, Hubs description of the beef tenderloin was spot on 'a baby with no teeth could eat this' :) Was happy to see a full house too...

Our family went there for brunch. While we found the food great tasting and selection plentiful, the bill was shockingly high. There are other great places to eat at in Halifax, that are much more affordable.

We had breakfast here, while staying at the adjoining Westing Nova Scotian hotel. It was an excellent choice for breakfast: very quick and friendly service (on both days by two separate servers), and the best selection on a cold breakfast buffet that I have seen in a hotel restaurant. We would definitely continue to make this our first stop of... More

This is one of our favorites. We frequently stay at the Westin hotel and totally enjoy dining at Elements. Service is always top notch & friendly and the food is superb! The breakfast buffet has so many great selections and the omelette station with made to order omelettes is a great choice!
