We had a great dinner out and really enjoyed our meals. The options were great - lots of different vegetarian choices to pick from - and everything was delicious. Cauliflower and spinach balls were great! The only drawbacks were the dining room was loud, but settled down as the evening went on, and chilly by the windows.

We had a few appetizers and a flatbread, along with some very nice wine that the server recommended, while seated at a high-top table and watching a jazz quartet jamming right in front of us. Need I say more? I think not. Well, actually, yes, the service was very good, too, and I really do plan on visiting this cool... More

Came to the Fifth Element for brunch on a Sunday. The host greeted as very warmly and found us a nice table by the window. Menu is a great mix of breakfast and lunch dishes - true brunch. Our server was attentive but was not overly friendly. Overall, it was a good experience.

Friendly atmosphere with great attentive service. Great pizza. Ask about the pizza of the day. Element salad is also very good. If you are looking for a good restaurant with good food just a bit away from the crowds, then this is the place for you!

It's fun to have dinner at the bar prior to the Monday evening Jazz! During the past visit a customer was enjoying Spinach Balls. They looked so good I decided to begin my meal with a serving of them prior to getting my fish tacos. Great choice!

We were in the area and needed a dinner option. We came with our 9 yr old. They don't have a kids' menu but have offerings if you ask. Our son liked the choices and he is picky. We all liked our food. I think we all felt it was solid not spectacular. We did have a good server. She... More

This is quite an urban chic sort of venue. There's a lot of road work in the area, but that does not detract from the dining experience. You may have to walk a coup,e blocks after you find parking. The food was very delicious, prepared exactly as described. However, it seemed very odd that there was no bread on the... More

We had a wonderful meal at fifth element for our anniversary. The big windows were open and we were seated right in front which was a great spot. We had the mussle ap which was delicious and I had the ahi tuna salad which was great as well. I did try one of the special drinks I can't remember the... More

Don't get the excitement about this place. Food is not so good. Life music is so loud you can get deaf in 10 minutes. They need to step up their game. Lunch time entertainment is good for children, really?
