Lovely food. Had to wait quite a while between starters and main, but we had good company and chat so it wasn't a problem. The element loyalty card helps with the bill and was an influencing factor in choosing the restaurant.

The wine that was brought was not the one we had ordered - the correct wine was brought once we had pointed this out and we were brought 2 rather than the 1 cheese plate. All sorted without any problem but made this diner feel uncomfortable

My favourite place in Edinburgh. The service is fantastic and friendly. The food is always fabulous. The drinks menu is something to be savoured. Would recommend Element to anyone looking for somewhere special.

Service was good but nobody asked if we wanted desserts. We had to ask the staff if we could order desserts. Why is wine so so expensive???

We came for a birthday dinner and have never recieved that standard of service anywhere. It was a really busy Friday night but you couldn't fault the staff, they were all so cheerful and friendly it made the experience so much better. The food was absolutely incredible and we cannot wait to come back for more! Despite the food being so good, the reason we're desperate to come back is because of the staff - they're such a credit to the business and it's rare to find such positivity in this industry. Thank you

Venue rang and cancelled as does not accept children under five. The most bizarre thing ever. Welcome to the city of Edinburgh folks!
