We heard about this place from our concierge at Winnetu. Appetizers were good. I recommend the octopus. For dinner my husband ordered the hangar steak. The meat was chewy and the cauliflower was like a soup. The gentleman sitting next to us said he ordered it last night and it look nothing like what my husband was serve. Bummer. Our... More

We were a large group and shared many dishes. The food was good but maybe a smaller group would have been better. Quiet ambience and better suited for two or four person groups.

A pleasent, but not outstanding, dining choice on the Vineyard.....there are so many (local) better choices to be had. An interesting, but not exceptional menu. Acoustics make dinner conversation challenging, and if you're sitting down stairs you're apted to be by the kitchen and the extreme bustle that goes with that. The food is fine, but not worth all the... More

In a town where so much can be over the top, Alchemy hits the right balance. Delicious food, great service, fine drinks..all in a relaxed and friendly setting. My halibut was well prepared, creative with yummy touches; and the steak my husband had was equal to that served in my upscale, city steak houses. Definitely a restaurant that is on... More

Delicious but $22 for an appetizer of fried sting beans? Rumor had it Obama was there the night before we were. Everyone in town considers this the place. We thought it was over-rated.

Hi Chris O, We're sorry to hear you found our menu too expensive. We strive to stay competitive with other restaurants of our caliber in Edgartown. It sounds like you enjoyed our Tempura Haricot Verts, priced at $16 on our menu. If you were somehow accidentally overcharged, please let us know so we can remedy it. Thanks for dining with... More

Alchemy continues to impress us over the years. It can be on the pricey side, but overall it is worth it. My spouse had one of the best salads ever -- Panzanella (she said it was even better than hers).
