I haven't been to the Element for a couple years now, and I had heard there was new management, even a new Chef. I thought I would come try it out and I was gladly surprised to see they had the same great tasting fries, but a few new items from the Chef as well. I haven't tried all of... More

We do come here a few times a year. Always a great meal. The only thing missing is they used to have a couple nice couches and the fireplace going that changes the ambiance. The fireplace going again would be nice.

It was pretty quiet when I went for a late lunch. The waitress was excellent.... full of life and good humour. The food was also good. This place does live music on the weekends. I had great fun chatting with the waitress about a great band I know! .....The Ballantynes :-)

We had very late lunch and the place was empty. We had a really yummy burger with blue cheese and mushrooms, excellent fries and side salad. Both of us really liked the meal. Our server was good. Enjoyable meal on the balcony in the sun.

Our servers are always so friendly and inviting, I love that my friends can bring their children until 10. My husband was recommended the tacos when he couldn't decide, and he loved them! It's always a delight to dine here!

If you haven't had the tacos, tried the poutines, or even the regular fries, than you need to come here and see for yourself. Best place for a quick bite to eat, or stay and enjoy the company! Continuing customer-

Horrible ambiance, bad food, deserted place, waitress tried her best, but had nothing to offer. No choice in wines. A place to forget, and never go back.

I took my kids out for a treat lunch. Let me tell you, it certainly was a treat. The waitress was so great with both of my toddlers, from being silly with them to keeping them entertained with fun coloring pages. The food was great portion sized for the kids (off the kid menu) as well as my own meal.... More
