Breakfast has always been dominated by a different local spot in Castlegar, but when you hear about something new... you try it. I'm glad I did. The head chef served me himself. The food was amazing and service was top notch. Found my new Sunday breakfast spot. When you have a great breakfast, you want to go there for lunch... More

This used to be a an upper end food service restaurant ...Menu has changed to more Pub Style Food? Now leans more to hamburgers & poutines etc. No steak or prime rib except Fridays.Limited food items (preheated ?) Totally surprised at the changes.

The previous owners did not make the Element a place you wanted to come back to visit again. The new management team here for the past year welcome you with open arms. Thank you Jess for amazing service as always. I am in love with the new chef and his incredible food. I always smile when I see those Berr-garita's.... More

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.
