Had another great dinner at Elements. My wife had the tea smoked duck (her favorite on the usual Menu). I had the Ahi Tuna. Both were excellent. Staff was as usual very attentive and friendly. And the value is excellent as well.

This EuroAsian fusion restaurant in a strip mall way south of San Jose was a great discovery. Surprisingly good, fresh ingredients were nicely prepared. Stuffed chicken and herb crusted salmon were excellent and the wine list quite impressive. It's not cheap but service was very...More

I hesitate to write this review as I am concerned my favorite neighborhood gem is going to be overrun. But they do such a great job, I needed to give them a recommendation. We come here regularly and have never had a bad meal. The...More
