Beautiful restaurant. I'm baffled that it is not always packed in there. Definitely a must for food lovers and travelers. Staff is cray cray nice and take what they do serious.

Used to be the best restaurant in town but on recent visit had a very substandard meal.. Parts of our meal were not even hot. Very disappointing meal.

We have stayed in Castlegar a number of times but this was the first time we ate at Element. We were impressed. The waitress was super friendly and accommodating. Because it wasn't very busy the night we were in, she spent some time talking to us. We wanted to know a bit about Castlegar. It was a very pleasant evening.

Horrible service. We ordered nachos, which were poorly made with oil dripping from them. When complained, chef was so reluctant for feedback that she said "oh! But I layered them", which made no sense and manager gave us 10% off on nachos that we didn't eat at all. The server was so reluctant to take it back that even when... More

We can see some changes with the new management - all good so far! We enjoy the artwork, and the blue lights are off on the stairs which makes it much easier on the eyes. The feta stuffed chicken wasvery good with a delicious sauce. I asked for salad instead of cooked veggies which was readily accommodated. My husband enjoyed... More

Took in a show (Duelling pianos) and dinner. Dinner was wonderful, tasty, hot, and the entertainment was first rate.

I'm a long-time visitor to the Element in Castlegar and have always been very impressed...but, lately, it seems like it is slipping somewhat. During my most recent visit, on a Saturday evening, I was initially surprised at how few people were in the restaurant....at least there was no problem getting a table and we were promptly seated by a friendly...

We went to Element on our way to visit our kids. We had a great meal and service. Came back 2 nights later with our son, wife and 2 grandchildren under 10( before 9PM). We got incredible service and all of us agreed, the food was great. Don miss this place-we went early before the bar scene happened, so it... More
