    Elements, breakfast, lunch and dinner

    Since we’re staying at the Bucuti, we’ve done all 3 meals here with different experiences.

    Breakfast is buffet style with a selection of just about every breakfast food. They had an abundance of fruit, some of which I’ve never seen before so tomorrow I may just have to try something new. Quality overall was quite good.

    Lunch service was very attentive but we still felt relaxed. I absolutely loved their sweet potato fries served with 2 different dipping sauces. One was an orange ginger combination that reminded me of a warm marmalade. The other was a mixture of sour cream, brown sugar and I forget what else.

    Dinner tonight was a buffet for Thanksgiving with turkey and all the fixings. We were there early so it wasn’t yet busy but service was really slow. The server was new and didn’t have a routine going so we felt like we were always waiting. Since we weren’t going anywhere after we decided to just suck it up. I think I prefer Elements for lunch over dinner though

    If you try dinner at elements again, request Janice as your server. She is fantastic and will make you change your mind about the service there.

    I think its open to guests only for breakfast and open to the public for lunch and dinner but I have been wrong before.

    I made reservations for our anniversary for Elements. I’m excited to try it next month. It’ll be an easy walk from our condo

    It may even be open to the public for breakfast as I did see people paying with a credit card. Breakfast is included for guests

    If you have a dinner reservation at Elements, you are welcome to have drinks at the bar if you arrive early, evwn if you are not staying there. Thanks Act1966 for that tip.
