After so many great meals, the very well done dinner at the Alchemy paled in comparison. everything was good, it just wasn't in the same league as other meals we already had. Although this is probably one of the better restaurants in Ashland.

Attended a multi-course Dickens Dinner. The food was well below average quality for the price. The wine list was pretentious and huge, with few reasonably priced offerings. The bill was as huge as the wine list. The service, however, was excellent. Perhaps the food is...More

Small plates of exquisitly prepared tapas (large spicy prawns, miniature beef wellington sliders). Not really a tapas bar but how else to describe the reasonably priced happy hour menu?...More

This is a fine dining restaurant in all respects: price, service, food, surroundings. When we were there the service was outstanding and so was the food.
