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.

This is an annual visit to this wonderful restaurant. This visit, we were seated on the upstairs porch o a hot summer night. The service was excellent as was the food.

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).

This was one of the worst, most overpriced restaurants I have ever experienced. The hostess was very snooty, they made us wait for 20 minutes for a table despite having a reservation, the food was overrated and two of the four meals had a hair in them. When we brought it to the attention of the waitress, nothing was done... More

Sat outside...very classy cool place. Sirloin tartare and crab salad excellent. Bistro atmosphere. Lobster dish w pasta was perfect. Vegetables(carrots and beans) prepared very well. I liked it a lot. Would definitely recommend esp for couples and small groups.

We found the food to be outstanding!! The portions are very abundant. This is the best meal I've had in a very long time both here and on the mainland. We had the grilled asparagus & Jonah crab salad, the air-chilled brick chicken and the pan seared Atlantic halibut. Each dish was very flavorful and different in a very good... More

We went to Alchemy for a special dinner with our son, daughter-in-law and grandson this week. We had never been to Alchemy and after the meal we were wondering, "Why not?" We had a great table on the second floor. The staff was sensitive to other diners with our table...as we had a one-year old with us...no one right on... More

We ate later in the evening. The drinks were very well made especially their speciality drinks. The food was to die for. Everyone's appetizers and entrees were well made and delicious. If I come back this would be a go to restaurant.

We enjoyed a spur of the moment trip to Edgartown. We have a variety of dietary needs and preferences. I was concerned with such a small menu that all in our party would be satisfied. The meal was outstanding! Our waiter reassured us that our vegetarian guest would enjoy a pasta dish the chef would specially prepare and he did... More

I had an amazing meal here last year, and decided I definitely wanted to return. All three of decided it was the best meal we've had while on the vineyard. First we started with an appetizer special of match-stick zucchini which was flash pan sauteed, with almonds and a super high quality parmigian. We had it last year when we... More
