“Outstanding!”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

After reading reviews on TA myself and my partner decided to pay this place a visit and we are so glad we did. Service was great, friendly and attentive. Food was amazing; between us we had the mussels and salted cod cake for starters, followed by the lobster and scallops and the belly pork. Each dish oozed with flavour and was cooked to perfection. We left full, satisfied and happy!

“Serious Disappointment.”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

I chose this restaurant based on the prior reviews and am sad to report that my experience was completely negative. The food was very bland. Despite the fact that only five or so tables were occupied, the service was slow and food was served luke warm at best. I regret that I chose this restaurant for my only meal in Halifax.

“Great Food and Excellent Service!”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

After spending a day touring around the Halifax Boardwalk, six of us enjoyed a wonderful meal at "Elements on Hollis". The menu isn't huge, but they do have some different dishes and everything we ordered was extremely tasty. This was the last day of our 1 week vacation in Halifax and it was a great way to finish off the holiday. Our waiter was excellent, the wine was excellent, and all the food was excellent. We were all glad we had picked this restaurant for our one fancier dinner out during our stay in Halifax.

“Nice change.”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

On October 5th, four of us decided to enjoy our Friday night at Restaurant "Elements".
We loved it. They use only local food and wine, fresh and tasty. The cheese tray was very nice and well presented.

Our server was Sofia, very warm and lovely young lady. She explained everything on the menu and why the water tastes so good. The atmosphere was relaxing, great company, good food and wine and excellent service. We had a wonderful evening.
