After getting settled in, we headed out for St. Patrick’s Day drinks. We wanted to avoid the rougher bars, so we came to Alchemy since we love a good cocktail. This place was divine. They offer small plate food, a large selection of beer and of course a wide variety of craft cocktails. I had the Alchemist, Bees Capris and... More

Cool atmosphere and knowledgeable bartender. We had him recommend drinks for us based on our choice of spirits. We weren't disappointed. We would definitely go back and try the small plates.

I love this restaurant! Small plates are my idea of the way to have a great dinner- little bits of delicious things. They've taken the couches and chairs out of the bar area, which is a shame, but we were seated on a very comfortable banquette in the dining room. I had the scallops and the mussels. The mussels were... More

The Alchemy offers a very good choice of imaginative cocktails (invented by the previous bartender). The atmosphere is friendly and good. The food however was disappointing. Paid 130$ for 4 people for 4 cocktails, fries, grilled cheese, a crab cake and a scallop bruschetta. Will definitively go back for the cocktails.

I have eaten with this establishment many times. Today the only plus was our waiter. The Bloody Mary was ordinary where it was always outstanding. One could choose your garnishes and mix--no longer. The food was ok but my dish was barely warm. The hash browns with pimento had almost no cheese? Todays meal was far below the standard that... More

I had a friend come into town for the weekend- I opted to take her to Alchemy where Conor and his staff always treat me like a celebrity, this was no different-food was great, servcie was attentive and cocktails were imaginative. Xanthe was our waitress and she was very helpful. For a great drink on a budget -I recommend the... More

Great for after work mixer, private room dining, with regal loft like feel. Exposed ceiling and bricked walls... gives it a seductive appeal. Located on Main Street with access to the trolley, making it convenient to access. Great food and drinks.

We ordered 4 small plates and 2 big plates as well as drinks. Everything was absolutely delicious! We enjoyed it so much! We are definitely returning with our significant others... More

This is one of my regular places to go. I would have given it 5 stars, but the food can be inconsistent at times. Many nights it's 5 stars, but some nights it seems to be only 3 stars. I'm not sure if I just hit it at times the main chef is out. If you stick with the basics,... More

The deviled eggs were delicious, as were the the fish tacos and Mussels. Actually the Mussels were terrific! Plump, meaty and with an excellent broth. They have a limited dessert menu (3) so we got one of each. The chocolate truffle cookie was very good. The chiffon cake was good. But the star of the round was the lemon creme... More
