    We had a lovely evening, enjoyed the food. I had never had warm cranberry sauce before, it was delicious. What a lovely way for my husband and I to share our wedding anniversary. We will certainly recommend you to our friends.

    Rhonda is the best!! Food is excellent: lamb and the crab/bacon fettuccine. Corkage fee is too high for Port Townsend, however the wine selection is very good.

    Several items on the website were not on the menu. Two items were sold out when we got our menus and we were advised that another was no longer available when we went to order. I had the GF mushroom pasta dish and it looked like quartered canned mushrooms. Dish lacked flavor as well Waiter was OK but never did return to ask how our meals were. Place wasn’t particularly busy either Won’t go back and can’t recommend it

    The Cesar salad was not worth the price. Nothing special. The service was slow but it was because there was only one server working that night.

    This facility has changed hands and they are still learning how things are done. Overall the food was adequate, although there were problems with the wine ordering. Seems the first 2 wines we requested were not available. Food was not really exceptional or what we had experienced in the past.

    Server wasn’t very friendly, didn’t know the menu well. Food came out cold. Mashed potatoes looked like they were previously frozen or refrigerated as they came out preformed with ridges as if they were in a can. Ambience was nice but overall food was way too costly for what you get & servers looked mad to be there. I wouldn’t go back unless they make vast improvements.

    Great food and very friendly, if a bit slow, service. We ate in the bar which had a nice ambience. Great cocktails! The wine list is somewhat limited and overpriced, but we found one that suited our meal. The rest rooms need to be updated and that appears to be planned for the near future. Overall, we finished our meal feeling very satisfied. We will return.

    They were out of a lot of items and the kitchen would not communicate this to the wait staff til last minute which wasn’t ideal. Our server handled it with grace- props to her. Pricey drink menu but the old fashioned was delicious!

    What a lovely dining find in Port Townsend WA! The service was top notch and the food was delicious! We sat outside which is basically on the sidewalk so not much ambience but it was fine especially for a busy week end in port Townsend! The people watching was fun. I would highly recommend their food , diverse menu met everyone’s tastes.

    I had a thoroughly unsatisfactory experience here. The food was expensive yet mediocre. We ordered the lamb. The leg was pretty good, but the wild mushrooms were 3, the vegetables were carrots and when I asked for extra vegetables instead of polenta, I got potatoes. The service was nonexistent. We saw that the table next to us got bread; we had none. When we asked for some our waiter told us they were just warning some up. 5 minutes later he brought us barely warm rolls. I asked him for coffee. He told me the machine was broken. Then the couple next to us ordered cappuccinos, which they got. He never bothered to offer me any. A horrible experience. I will never be back.

    Thé menu was very limited and the food was mediocre. Three of our friends ordered steaks and none of them were cooked as requested. They also said they were tough. They had one fish option on the menu but were out of it. ( we arrived before 7 pm). Given the few options, I had an acceptable but not very exciting salad and went home a bit hungry. My husband ordered two appetizers and was disappointed. They were well presented but tasteless. We have been to Alchemy many times in the past and always enjoyed it. This experience was an unexpected disappointment.

    We made reservations for our anniversary dinner. When we arrived the restaurant was mostly empty. We were sat in the very back of the restaurant at the smallest table (when several tables were open) that barely fit our plates, next to a walk through staff doorway, against a wall of stacked up boxes of bottled water and under a fake plant that kept getting caught in my hair. The service was mediocre with a fast push to get our order taken then a lot of waiting and no attention after our food arrived. I finished my plate and sat for over 25 minutes waiting for a box. My husband was out of his beer early on. And the food was basic and not very exciting, my husbands meat was way under cooked. The only table next to us was so loud, so loud. Overall - we just felt overlooked and not taken care of. We made a reservation for a special night and everything was just blah. For $150 we could have gone anywhere else - we will not return.

    Service was great. The New York steak was excellent. However, the 3 tiny crab tots for $18 were very disappointing. The pasta was also quite bland. Food wasn’t bad, just expecting more for the price.

    We went out for a special evening. It was a warm and there weren't very many summer choices for entrées. The portions were small for the price as well. The service was great as well as the ambience.

    Our waitress was outstanding. She was like relaxed friend and gave excellent advice. The 8 once filet was outstanding. I am nor normally a steak person but I would give this steak top marks. Also a reasonable size for normal person to eat. I felt that a little more of the excellent carrot would be nice. My preference regarding the potatoes would be for them to be cut a bit larger. Finally the creme brulee, it was nicely done but so small a serving (about 1/2 inch deep) that it disappointed, especially for the price. Overall a fine dinner at a lovely table at the fountain side. We will come again as soon as we can.
