I wish that I could give this review a rating worse than 'Terrible'. This was by far the worst dining experience of my life. I'm 44 and travel a lot. We had a large reservation for 7:00, which I arrived early for, the night of a comedy event. I was the third of eleven to arrive. I had a seat... More

We are new to the area. Went for fish and chips. Very dissatisfied. The fish was all batter. Less than an ounce of actual fish. We paid $12 for frozen french fries. Service was good though.

Have enjoyed many events and family birthdays at the Element. They provide an excellent food menu, great alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks and from time to time special entertainment is offered.

I had a wonderful evening, the service was friendly and fun, I have never been disappointed when I go there. They were a little bit slower then usual this evening as they were serving food upstairs as well as (for the first time ever) downstairs as well. They wanted to accommodate the need for the service as many people made... More

Recently learned that the Element now serves breakfast, so my partner and I decided to try it out. The portions were big, and the service was great. The food itself was good, but not great. A nice little breakfast spot to try out. I do not recommend the "Kootenay Scramble", or as it's spelled on the menu "kootnay scramble", but... More

Breakfast has always been dominated by a different local spot in Castlegar, but when you hear about something new... you try it. I'm glad I did. The head chef served me himself. The food was amazing and service was top notch. Found my new Sunday breakfast spot. When you have a great breakfast, you want to go there for lunch... More

This used to be a an upper end food service restaurant ...Menu has changed to more Pub Style Food? Now leans more to hamburgers & poutines etc. No steak or prime rib except Fridays.Limited food items (preheated ?) Totally surprised at the changes.

The previous owners did not make the Element a place you wanted to come back to visit again. The new management team here for the past year welcome you with open arms. Thank you Jess for amazing service as always. I am in love with the new chef and his incredible food. I always smile when I see those Berr-garita's.... More

Stopped by for dinner while passing through on a road trip. Excellent fish and chips and chicken sandwich. Reasonable price.
