Went with a family group, ranging from young teen to 84y old. All could find something they liked on the menu. We ordered a wide variety of items, and all were well prepared and served piping hot! A wide variety of beers, with good recommendations from the wait staff for the various tastes at our table. Normally, we would go... More

This was a family lunch. Service was very good. Waited a long time for food order. I think I saw the cook go on a break! Tomato soup of the day tasted like canned spaghetti sauce...looked like it too! Good size portions. The menu is way to large to serve justice to all items. Specialize on a few and make... More

Our family was waited on promptly, and service throughout the meal was very good. The menu is large, with a wide variety of options. The calamari and rib appetizers were acceptable, but the salt and pepper chicken wings were overcooked and lacked seasoning. The Moroccan lamb shank, served in an impressive tajine, was very sweet, with an abundance of apricots... More

Although our most recent visit to the Element had a few glitches in the menu items, the server was excellent in her handling of our concerns, plus we received a follow up telephone call to apologize for any dissatisfaction we may have experienced. However, I do feel that to advertise couscous with the lamb and then serve rice is quite... More

My advice is to try as many items on the menu as you can - I have no favorite because every thing was wonderful. I like to eat out & have something I can not make at home - wow, this was the Element. We ate there four out of five nights on holidays in July, 2014 (didn't want or... More

LOVE the food here! The Chef is absolutely remarkable and the servers great! What sucks is the male bartender who is arrogant and borderline rude. Everytime he passes your table, he re-arranges it . And if you move the S & P shakers , on his next pass he will put them back where he wants them. On Thursday 4:45... More

OH MY GOD! It has been awhile since the Okanogan pig has been on the menu, but it was back on the June feature menu, and I was lucky enough to hit it on the last day. On the drive down my better half was telling me not to get my hopes up as it would not likely be as... More

If you want an amazing meal that combines delectable flavour and first class ingredients, hit up the Element in Castlegar. I enjoyed lamb steak that melted in my mouth accompanied with crisp vegetables lightly covered in an au jus extra ordinaire! The Hector Creek house merlot was a great addition. Way to go, Castlegar!
