    Elements does not take reservations for groups larger than 6 and does not accept cash, but dinner is fabulous.

    Flying Fishbone is one of our most memorable experiences for an anniversary dinner. Good choice, phrogg108.
    I thought Barefoot was perfect for a group.

    Thanks for the heads up. That' one healthy bill for two people- $265.00! We would rather skip the meal and spend another night in Aruba. LOL

    Honestly, so would we. My in-laws were gracious enough to pay for our meal that night because it was our wedding anniversary dinner and they arranged it ahead of time, to our surprise. We got handed a nice card when we got there that said our meal was going to be taken care of by them. Once we found out the total, we agreed we would probably not go back again. In all honesty, our meal at Madam Janette's was also expensive, but not THAT expensive and we decided at MJ's that we would only go there sparingly, if ever again. The Flying Fishbone was good, but it was not $265.00 good. Both our meals were around $50, we each had drinks and dessert. With that and an 18% tip, it added up fast.

    Heck, I would rather go to Local Store 5 times over than go back to Flying Fishbone and spend that kind of money! It was a wonderful evening and a VERY nice gesture by my in-laws, but there are a lot of other places we decided we would rather go than there for that kind of cash.

    We ate there about 2 weeks ago and it was wonderful!! I can't remember what the bill was, but it was expensive. There were 4 of us and each of our meals was delicious. It was worth the drive and the money. The last time we were there was about 15 years ago, but it lived up to my memory.
