We came to visit relatives who have a house on Martha's Vineyard. As it was a birthday we suggested we take them out to dinner. They picked the spot and boy were we delighted! Alchemy is really a first class dining experience. The building is old and really warm and inviting as are the hostesses and staff. Mike the bartender... More

No reservations and the place we intended was closed for private party. Stumbled upon this on Main Street and we're glad we did. Bistro style with white paper on the tables. Bar was full of diners and we view that as a good sign. Very warmly greeted with a table readily available. A little too chilly for outside. Nice crowd... More

Alchemy is a Vineyard classic. I would recommend everyone go at least once during their stay! Luxury atmosphere, wonderful service, and a great wine list. The bar also has very nice seating, I would suggest grabbing a drink before you are seated for your table! Definitely one of my favorites.

Martha's Vineyard has many restaurants. The one I would return to over and over again, is Alchemy. The food is superb, the wine list ambitious, and the wait staff knowledgable and attentive. I had scallops in a bed of fresh corn and peas with red cabbage. It was spectacular. Don't miss this wonderful restaurant if you go to the Vineyard.... More

Alchemy lounge as become our go to on the Vineyard mostly because it is always easy to find a table in the lounge to drink and/or eat. Our son is a member of the Vineyard Sound a cappella group and they often perform all over Etown. The service is always friendly and pretty fast, the cocktails good. We had dinner... More

My husband and I ate at Alchemy last night. When I called for a reservation around 7:00 p.m., the very polite hostess told me the earliest open table for two would be 9:25, but we could walk in off the street and they might fit us in or we might get seats at the bar. When we arrived, despite the... More

I have been to Alchemy several times over the years and always had an outstanding experience. My visit a few nights ago was the first one during a busy evening during tourist season so I now understand how service can be compromised when the restaurant is so busy. We had made a reservation, and we were greeted promptly with a... More

First the good: we both had the burgers. They had good meat and were cooked to medium rare perfection, generous cheese, and heaps of carmelized onion. They came with a mountain of delicious fries. The bad: we arrived at 6:15, long before the rush. Two thirds of the tables were still empty but they wouldn't seat us in the dining... More

The old saying is true size is not everything .... Well at least not for a restaurant. This place is great and has good food if you find yourself in this area. The cost is reasonable an the staff is courteous. Would definitely recommend you taking the time to stop by if you have the time.

Very nice restaurant but a bit crowded. Make sure you have a reservation and do not want to cancel it. Goopd service and wait staff.
