“Excellent breakfast experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

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 the day when staying at the Westin!

“New years Day Buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Went to the New Years Day Buffet it was great
Service was top notch (thanks Sarah) and the buffet offering was up to Westin standards
The place was packed but the food items were plentiful and great quality
The ticket in the mail (as it was a pre-pay event) and the follow up call to book next year was first class - good work Westin marketing team
The chef stopped at our table and made sure we had what we needed
Happy New years - see you next year

“Great service & delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

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!

“Exceeded my expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

For a hotel restaurant, Elements on Hollis provided much more than I expected. Menu options, location, ambiance, food quality, and service far exceeded expectations. This restaurant should be on the short list of great places to dine in Halifax.

“Excellent breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

We ate here for breakfast while at a conference in the hotel. The food was excellent with many different choices, and the service was fast and pleasant. The room itself was light and pleasant. Really a great choice for breakfast.
