Description: Elements, located in the new Riverwoods Center, is yet another hit for local chef Dustin McKay. One taste and there’s no question – Elements is sleek, and their food is consistently true to its roots. Servers are efficient and friendly, and an extensive, ever evolving wine list ensures that even the most exacting wine drinker may find something unique. Elements delightfully offers beautifully prepared, fresh, flavorful dishes, just waiting for the curious diner to revel in.

We visited Elements with trepidation. Recent reviews were mixed - poor food, poor service. And then there were the very good reviews. Ours falls into the latter category - our dinner was excellent. They were running their 2 for $44 special - 1 appetizer, 2 salads or soup, two main courses and two desserts. It was a limited menu but contained the dishes we were planning on ordering just not that many courses. Left to our own devices, we would have ordered an appetizer to share, each would have an entrée and a dessert to share. But it was too good a deal to pass up. We thought the portions might be smaller - they weren't. We shared the Thai Lettuce Wrap appetizer - I don't know if the other appetizers are as good but this was outstanding. I have had this dish in other restaurants but never prepared like this. It would also make a wonderful lunch. We each had the spinach salad - one would have been large enough to share. It was a very good salad. I ordered the diver sea scallops served on a bed of sweet potatoes (could have had the smashed garlic potatoes). My husband had the mixed grill served with fettuccini. The presentations were beautiful. Knowing dessert was still to come, we only ate half our dishes and boxed the rest to take back to our room for lunch the next day. Both our dishes were excellent. My scallops were beautifully caramelized and while only three, they were huge - true diver sea scallops. We both chose the chocolate soufflé for dessert which was served with chocolate chip ice cream decorated with chocolate and raspberries. The food was a surprise to us for Logan. None of the restaurants we have eaten at this past week in Logan have come close to the quality, taste, presentation and service that we received on a Monday night in Elements. Our server Shannon made sure that everything was served timely and that we were not rushed or waiting. We have a few more vacation days in town and will try to return; this restaurant is a keeper. And by the way the location is beautiful, (set on the Logan River) as is the interior. Try for a window view if you are sitting inside; the entire restaurant presents a sophisticated city atmosphere vs. small town. The only down side was the martini my husband had. It was the smallest martini we have ever seen. Seems Utah laws limit the size of hard liquor drinks. Do wine or beer.

I really like this place. Lunch specials are amazingly good. Soup and salad combo (with many great choices) can't be beat. We locals are lucky to have such a lovely place to eat.

By Logan standards, Elements was a bit pricey, but coming from San Francisco it was a bargain. Food was good, and the atmosphere in the patio was wonderful. Especially enjoyed our co-diners, a family of ducks.

The only dishes that were below expectation were the salads. All featured limp greens drowning in dressing. The proper way to serve a salad is to dress it lightly, and serve an additional cruet of dressing on the side. Of course, it helps when the greens are fresh and crisp.

Service was very good, professional and friendly.

We have given this place several chances. Unfortunately we are consistently let down. Awesome patio but lengthy wait time for food, staff seems clueless about food and liquor. Wish they would turn things around. Food us great once it arrives

Having lived in the Bay area near San Francisco, I have been in all types of nice restaurants and Elements is comparable in atmosphere and decor. But, that's where it ends. I had reservations on May 25th to celebrate with my fiance and was looking forward to the culinary experience. We ended up being seated in a deserted area of the restaurant with no shortage of waiters walking by and not to mention the hostess who seated us walking by several times and not even bothering to ask whether we were helped. After 20 minutes both me and my fiance walked out of the restaurant after not even being served water! We had been seated way before the throng of prom night dates arrived to be seated therefore, there was and is no excuse for the lack of follow up at our table!

So, unfortunately, I can't even make a review of the food because nobody bothered to even wait on us or serve us. Thankfully, across the way we ended up at The Beehive Grill which should have been our choice in the first place. Every time, we've gone there, the food has been awesome and the service always prompt and courteous (even when it's been crowded!).

I am thoroughly disappointed in a restaurant of this caliber and it shouldn't be in business if it can't stand by their service! Will NEVER come here again!
