just the two of us. We were in PT to relax and enjoy the town. Had a very relaxing and romantic lunch. The place is larger than it looks from the outside and they have a great wine selection. We will certainly go back.

We stopped for dinner and were very satisfied. Seafood dishes are very good, cooked with care and first class ingredients. We had the Cioppino and the Seafood and Chorizo Paella and they were excellent.

This restaurant came highly recommended, but we were disappointed in our experience. Our wait staff was terrific, sympathetic, and attentive, but the food and wait time were disastrous. It seems that there is no designated greeter, at least not that we noticed. We, and later another couple, were left standing at the doorway waiting for someone to greet us and... More

My wife and I arrived in P.T. on Monday, the 4th of July and chose Alchemy for dinner. The romantic atmosphere was exactly what we were looking for on my birthday. Our attentive but patient server gave us time to savor our wine choices -- Tamarack chardonnay for her; Huntsman cabernet for me. My wife raved about her Wild Alaskan... More

I had the charcuterie plate for lunch with a nice and crisp Washington Pinot Blanc. The place has a lovely atmosphere.

Alchemy transforms food into an art form. We enjoyed the cioppino, king salmon, and many other salads and small plates. The house wine was perfect. The server was attentive and helpful. The atmosphere was subdued and the music was soft.

Pleasant atmosphere that fits well with Port Townsend. We found service a bit slow -- they had to comp drinks to cover. Wait staff was friendly and helpful. Food was good, but not outstanding. $24 for stuffed salmon. Large portions - most will not leave hungry. Nice selection of wine and a very wide range of choices on the dinner... More

Consistently excellent food and service, warm ambiance, inviting wine bar: those are the reasons my friends and I choose Alchemy 9 times out of 10 when we meet for dinner, lunch or a glass of wine. You can order meals in the wine bar or choose the elegant dining room, and choose from a variety of entrees, appetizers and luscious... More
