Elements is tucked away off of Hwy 54 in the back of a newer office complex In Chapel Hill, but word of mouth has drawn the clientele, so a reservation is recommended. It calls itself "contemporary new American" and clearly has an Asian influence on its modern decor and American-Asian-fusion menu. Plan your meal around dessert! Wow! Chocolate cremeaux taste explosion! The entrees are incredible with beautiful presentation and ample portions - the crispy prawns do not disappoint. For a special occasion, reserve the one table in the "glass box" to impress. Outdoor dining on the patio has nice decor but is at the parking lot - inside, the ambiance and comfort prevails. Valet park if the small lot is full.

The food was fantastic! Every dish was well prepared and the flavors worked well together. We had one fish entree that was overcooked but the kitchen fixed it immediately and brought out a fresh dinner. The desserts were so fantastic that there was no sharing and we each ate all of our desserts. I would definitely return and highly recommend it.

Good menu and the food tasted great but the service was really slow and that was on a Wednesday night. Love the locally sourced products and they have a decent wine list.

Delicious fusion cuisine well presented. Our server Annalise was knowledgeable, responsive and friendly. Great sushi, wonderful choice of meat, seafood, and vegetarian options, and terrific desserts. Wish we lived closer. Good quality for the money. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Elements is an upscale restaurant with an interesting menu, excellent service, and knowledgeable serving staff. The food is very well presented, the portions are ample and the ambiance is very thoughtful. This is no one particular dish to recommend because we had a party of six and each of us ordered different entrees that were extremely tasty and well prepared. Since everything is a la carte, a meal can become very pricey, but if you enjoy fine dining, you are in for a treat and new experience.
