Visited the restaurant on a busy Saturday night. Easily got a table and had great drinks, food and service. They make exceptional cocktails for a great price. Fun place to get together with friends while enjoying the historical downtown area.

We found the Alchemy very elegant and enjoyed the guitar music. Our food was tasty, and our wait person was accommodating. My vegetarian paella was tasty, and the wine was reasonable and good.

My wife and I tried Alchemy for dinner and we were disappointed. It was a Friday evening and granted that place was busy but we had a reservation. Overall the food was just OK and the long wait between courses really spoiled the evening. I...More
