Having been on two separate occasions, first to dinner and then just to the bar, I can attest to a nice, open layout with multiple seating areas, to which we were given our choice, albeit begrudgingly so as we meandered to the empty further dining room still being set up for dinner. The meal was decent, nothing that sticks out... More

Alchemy has it all. A fantastic wine list, varied menu, ambiance, great service. Went there for a birthday dinner and am thinking that celebrating a birthday there on a weekly basis would be a good idea, The salmon was the best ever...and I know my salmon. The best Port Townsend restaurant for that special occasion.

To start: A good wine list. It is not often you can find smaller WA wineries in a restaurant. We had the 2013 JM Bramble Bump. This is a small Woodinville winery and IMO this is their best blend. It had been several years since we visited this wine bar, and even longer since we tasted the JM cellars wine.... More

This review is for the Alchemy Bistro, the restaurant half of this business. Alchemy is a very good restaurant. They source their ingredients carefully and the food they serve is almost always very good. There are some gluten-free options on the menu, but not a lot of them. Being associated with the adjacent wine bar means that there is also... More

We must have ordered one of everything. The tapas size appetizers were divine and the steak, salads, wine, and atmosphere were superb!! Highly recommended for romantic date or fun with friends.

Wonderful dinners and fun food at the small bites drink bar. The wine selection is good! the environment is lovely and it is a short, short walk to both the Rose movie theater and the Uptown movie theater.

We often end up at Alchemy for brunch after church on Sundays. The ambience is the best and it is never noisy even when every table is filled. Food is consistently good and the wait staff is always friendly and attentive.

We had a lovely lunch for a group of 8. Everyone left happy! The food was tasty and fun! The staff was friendly and patient with us too. I would stop again next time we are in town.

They have a great daily happy hour with wine specials and small bites plates are phenomial! I love the pate'! Goes wonderful with a red, and if you are gluten intolerate, the gluten free crackers have a lovely rosemary accent and are quite good. The shrimp plate is yum! as is the figs with blue cheese and the french onion... More

This was a good restaurant I'm sure. The servers were very good, but overworked in a very busy place. We selected unusual mains which we have decided we will not do again! I'm sure if we would have selected something more normal, it would have been good. It was a little on the pricey side. Our rating is probably low... More
