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

We just wanted a drink or two.. We ended up ordering two cocktails - they were okay and nothing to rave about. The presentation of the cocktails were sloppy. After viewing the menu, we decided on two tapas to go with our cocktails - Eggplant Tapenade and the Chorizo Stuffed Dates. My partner and I didn't really enjoy the eggplant... More

Cozy, corner restaurant in great location. Unfortunately, our food was mediocre - seafood and meats overdone, skin not properly rendered on the duck. It was eatable, but nothing outstanding.

I recently visited Port Townsend with my dad to go antiquing. We stopped in here for lunch as it is one of my dads favorite places. The restaurant itself was decorated lovely for Christmas! It definitely put us in the spirit. We weren't that hungry so we split the angels on horseback appetizer and the duck salad. Both were delicious,... More

My eldest son and I ate at Alchemy Bistro for a late luncheon on our first day in Port Townsend during our vacation week to the Puget Sound area during early November. We had been doing a walking tour around Port Townsend's historical Downtown and worked up an appetite. We were intrigued by the Alchemy Bistro's charming outside appearance, so... More
