Hubby had the duck (delicious) and I had the salmon (very fresh but a little overcooked). Service was very good. Nice ambiance. Enjoyable meal.

We were in PT a few weeks ago for a belated anniversary celebration. We stayed at a B&B on top of the hillclimb and walked down to the middle of the cute little town. After a very enjoyable movie at the historic Rose Theater we walked the few easy steps over to Alchemy Bistro. The ambience is funky VIctorian fun,... More

Went here for my birthday. It is nicely appointed, and a bit more upscale than you typically find in town. There was a musician playing a guitar and it was nice - not so loud that we couldn't have a conversation. They serve cocktails, wine and beer and my cosmo was delicious. My sister had an unusual cocktail which she... More

This restaurant seems to be well thought of in the community but we were disappointed. Ate here on a Monday night in October. The restaurant was not crowded, but they immediately wanted to seat us at the smallest and most uncomfortable table. We declined and asked to be seated in a more comfortable spot which they did. We found the... More

We also dined there on Thanksgiving and had a different experience. Our salad was good, our shrimp appetizer was over cooked. As soon as we finished our appetizers our Entrees appeared. Unfortunately they had been sitting for quite a while as they were slightly warm at best. We had the pumpkin pie which was good and what we were told... More

We went to this restaurant after reading all the reviews in T/A. We had great service. Our food was pretty good as well. The restaurant was a bit cold, I kept my jacket on most of the time we were there but it is very nice inside.

We chose this restaurant for Thanksgiving, based on Trip Advisor comments & it did not disappoint. Two of us had one of the T-Day specials, a fork-tender tenderloin, and the other two had selections off the regular menu - - the lamb shanks and the cassoulet. Everyone was pleased with their choices, although the glazed turnips were a bit crunchy... More

While visiting family for Thanksgiving, my wife and I got away for lunch at Alchemy. We were drawn to the French atmosphere and menu. We each loved the ravioli of the day along with a glass of their plentiful wine choices. Our server Lucie made the time quite pleasant. There are so many menu choices, so we will look forward...

We went to Alchemy Bistro almost by accident on a Sunday morning since not many stores or restaurants were open yet. My friend and I ordered two different dishes and split them, a breakfast sandwich (which was huge) and a brioche French toast with some type of liquor that I can't recall now. Both were delicious and the server was... More

This was our first visit and I am sure we will be back. We were greeted by the lady who turned out to be our server. A semi private table that was in a screened area next to a very talented guitar player all added to a wonderful ambience. As would be expected a wine bar would have an excellent... More
