Our "go to" restaurant Atria was closed for a private party and they recommend Alchemy. We REALLY enjoyed our dinner at the bar. Crispy pork belly perfectly cooked. Bag of fried oysters were an indulgence we don't often order. Be aware that the portion is HUGE. The bartender is super attentive (even when slammed) and makes exceptional cocktails. The place...

Dined here the other night and had a very enjoyable dinner. Service was excellent. Had their bag of fried oysters, which were fresh and presented in a fun manner. The oysters were plentiful, and we paired it with a bottle of Sancerre. Very nice evening meal.

Went to Alchemy after the Christmas stroll in Edgartown. What a delight! We were planning on having drinks and appetizers, but the appetizer menu was fairly limited and the bay scallop and pasta special sounded intriguing, so we ordered that. It. Was. Amazing! Perfectly cooked fresh Vineyard bay scallops with spinach, garlic and these tiny cheese ravioli-type pasta - fabulous!... More

We met good friends at the Vineyard on a spectacular weekend in October. Staying in our friends house overlooking the Edgartown Harbor wat a treat. And being driven around the (new) island of Chappaquiddick (the spit of land connecting it to the Vineyard has been broken through, but may fill in again) was special. You have to let air out...

We chose Alchemy for dinner because of the positive reviews and it's lovely appearance. Expecting good food and nice atmosphere was a huge mistake. The service was slow, the waitstaff could not get the order straight, the food was blah and you couldn't hear the person seated next to you speaking. So we had bad food ($40.00 for tough, grisly...

We had literally not finished our appetizers when our main course was plunked down on the table. I know they are anxious to turnover tables but this was ridiculous and we said so. They must hear this complaint often because the wait staff barely acknowledged our concern. The food quality while very expensive was fairly good and I might otherwise... More
