We have eaten at Elements several times and really enjoy the food and fun wine dispenser. The hostess who greeted us didn't even say hello but just asked if we had a reservation. We said no but that we would sit outside (lots of available seats). She still didn't say a word and just marched us out there. Our waitress... More

Our charming waitress made a great pitch for the West Indian Bouillabaisse, and it was everything she had promised. Never mind that it comes in a "plastic bag" that is opened at the table, it is a wonderful assembly of seafood. I finished the meal with a delicious apple crisp with vanilla bean ice cream--well worth the 15 minute wait... More

A lot of Asian influence, but something for everyone. Not only great tasting, but beautifully presented. Our go-to place for fine dining in Chapel Hill.

This restaurant is a joy to visit. The staff was gracious and personable. The summer rolls were absolutely delicious. My X wife had Sea Bass and was prepared to protection. I sad shushi was beautify prepared and super. They had an excellent wine list and had an outside wine tasting. This is a hidden gem. Get a reservation.

This was my first visit to Elements for dinner, and WOW! This was one of the best meals I have had in Chapel Hill, and I have lived here for 19 years! Great food; great service; great company -- and absolutely the best key lime our I have ever eaten! Where have I been for the last four years? (They... More

Elements is a wonder fusion of Vietnamese of other Asian cuisines. We just love to eat here. The seafood, beef, and duck dishes are our favorites, but there is so much more to it. Prices are reasonable, especially good wine at $30-$40 range.

a bright setting for a business lunch or dinner. The food is well prepared and presented and of good quality. Business prospects will know that they have been treated well. the presentations are elegant. Unfortunately or fortunately there is nothing exciting or unexpected in the taste of the food.

I brought my boyfriend here for his birthday. We had the pork sliders for an appetizer, which had some nice heat to them from the jalapeño. Then we had the spicy tuna roll (which they did for us even on a fattest they weren't offering this roll since they weren't too busy when we asked), it was delicious! My boyfriend... More

Very disappointing experience. The air conditioning was broken, yet we were not offered anything to compensate for the discomfort. The water was served without ice. My drink came to the table without a stirring stick. At the end of the meal my entree was taken away to be packed up but was never returned to us by the time we... More
