    Shared Kale Caesar which tasted totally non-vegan, soo good. (Not that vegan tastes bad!) My husband, not totally Vegan, Yet! Loved his meatball sub, I had the fried chikn sandwich, so big I took some home. This was great also, and the coleslaw I ordered on the side. You can pick one side and I got the fries, enjoyable as well. We definitely felt we got our money’s worth.

    I reserved a sit inside and they insisted on sitting us outside in the heat of the day and with the noise of a band playing outside. I know the reservation was made for inside since I was bringing my 83 year old mother who can’t be in the heat or the sun. We ended up going someplace else. The hostess did not even try to find an alternative.

    Element GastropubResponded on 6 September 2022I'm really sorry to hear about this Sandra, will discuss this with the FOH Manager and Hostess and figure out why we could not accommodate. Personally if my 83 year old mother or grandmother wants to sit inside, she gets what she wants! Unacceptable and will address this. Thank you.

    This was our first time eating here and we had a great time. My daughter who’s birthday it was choose the restaurant as she is vegan and the rest of us are not.. BUT let me just say it was soo good. My server was attentive and polite and helped us create lasting memories.

    Poor service. Made a reservation and waited at the door for 5-10 minutes without greeting. Someone finally yelled to just sit anywhere. So we did. And waited 20 minutes and were never approached or acknowledged or told someone would be with us shortly. They seemed to all have given up. We’ve eaten here many times before with much better results so it was disappointing. We finally just left and had a great dinner at the Overlook in the Residence Inn with awesome service. Would never have discovered this gem if not for the lack of service at Element.

    I was hoping this food would be OK, but my expectations were exceeded because it is delicious! It does not matter if you are a vegan or not, you need to at least try this place once. I am not a fan of real meat, and I usually dislike vegan meats (to me it's something pretending to be what I don't like in the first place), but, I ordered the spicy noodles dish and thoroughly enjoyed them. My friend and husband ordered the tacos and BBQ sando, respectively, and they loved theirs as well (and they both love meat). They also have a nice cocktail and draft beer selection. We will definitely be going back here in the near future.

    They have great vegan options. I don't necessarily recommend the tofu wings or the coleslaw; however, the impossible burger was very good. The actual inside seating was a little muggy when I went, but the service was good. I would personally go back again.

    The food was incredible! Our party consisted of three omnivores and a pescatarian and we thought everything was completely delicious. The fried chick’n sandwich was enormous and the breading unique and delicious. Cocktails were innovative and tasty. The standout for us was the seasoned fries— never had anything like them! Can’t wait to go back!

    When we choose to go out we make a conscious effort to support local. It’s a double bonus if it’s vegan or has a few alternatives. Element Gastropub checks both of those boxes! As usual the food was great (it can be tough to find good vegan pub food). And as usual the service was lack luster. What should have been a 90 minute, at most, experience was a 145 minute patience test. The restaurant wasn’t overly busy. The server didn’t have too many tables, just a lack of attention. From now on I’ll order take out & be in control of my own timing for a meal.

    The food was subpar, not the best. The menu is limited to only brunch on Sunday's which was a disappointment. Will not be returning.

    Element GastropubResponded on 24 July 2022You're upset because we serve brunch on Sunday? Yet we serve a full menu Tuesday - Saturday? Ok. Makes sense, not.

    Rude service. They tried to make us pay and tip as soon as food was served. They refused to give us the guest wifi password. The server first agreed to give me mayo and then refused. They give unwrapped straws and the restaurant isn't quite clean. I would have left if I didn't have a reservation.

    The host was less than accommodating. We reserved an outdoor table and there were three available when we arrived. One was not yet cleaned and we asked for the only other one available other than the one we were seated at. The host told us all the tables were reserved for 630pm which was the same time our reservation. It didn’t make sense to me. And sadly during our time at the restaurant no one sat at those other outdoor tables. Other than that minor disappointment our server John was informative and shared his preferences from the menu when asked. He was attentive and very thoughtful. Would definitely eat at element again and hopefully request John as our server. Thank you.

    They were sold out of my friend's first 2 choices 30 minutes after they opened??? The sangria was not good. They were also out of the beer I wanted after I sent back the sangria that I paid for. The food was subpar at best. The "brisket" was so spicy, it was inedible, and I like spicy food. It rained the evening we were there and the restaurant leaked with puddles of water on the floor. No bueno!!!

    Outdoor seating was nice, good atmosphere Food was pretty good, but had to make a second choice. As they were out of my first choice. Turned out fine. I can appreciate the mission of the restaurant, to serve only plant based food. Service was a bit spotty but they brought us some cookies to make up for it. They’re trying!
