Friendly atmosphere with great attentive service. Great pizza. Ask about the pizza of the day. Element salad is also very good. If you are looking for a good restaurant with good food just a bit away from the crowds, then this is the place for you!

It's fun to have dinner at the bar prior to the Monday evening Jazz! During the past visit a customer was enjoying Spinach Balls. They looked so good I decided to begin my meal with a serving of them prior to getting my fish tacos. Great choice!

We were in the area and needed a dinner option. We came with our 9 yr old. They don't have a kids' menu but have offerings if you ask. Our son liked the choices and he is picky. We all liked our food. I think we all felt it was solid not spectacular. We did have a good server. She... More

This is quite an urban chic sort of venue. There's a lot of road work in the area, but that does not detract from the dining experience. You may have to walk a coup,e blocks after you find parking. The food was very delicious, prepared exactly as described. However, it seemed very odd that there was no bread on the... More

We had a wonderful meal at fifth element for our anniversary. The big windows were open and we were seated right in front which was a great spot. We had the mussle ap which was delicious and I had the ahi tuna salad which was great as well. I did try one of the special drinks I can't remember the... More

Don't get the excitement about this place. Food is not so good. Life music is so loud you can get deaf in 10 minutes. They need to step up their game. Lunch time entertainment is good for children, really?

We had high hopes for this restaurant, as the reviews led us to believe it would be a unique and lovely dining experience. Our food was okay- we ordered a pizza which is hard to mess up- but the service was offensively bad. We were completely ignored by our server, who was no where to be seen. She disappeared for...

Great food with indoor and outdoor seating. Friendly staff - can get very busy, so best to have a reservation. Many options available, even gluten free, with an asian flare. You can sit in a busy part of the restaurant or at a more quiet table - just advise the staff.

Not a typical seaport restaurant with an eclectic menus that works well with the decor. Good selection of cocktails to complement the food. The menu is just big enough to cover all the bases without giving "too many" choices. Service was polished and food well presented

Thank denali13
