Very good. Lots of lamb and duck. Everyone in our party was very pleased with their order. Lots of variety. Nice selection of small plates. Several couples had 4 small plates so they got to try many of the items. I had crab stuffed salmon and it was cooked to perfection. A bit pricey but worth it. This is a take your time place. Don't plan to do anything else besides dinner and wine. Just relax.

My husband and I went for my birthday. Service was so slow despite the resturant not being full. My steak was cooked nicely and was good. My husband ordered the Tandoori which he did not care for...we ordered a Bruschetta that was outstanding....just took forever to get it...

We live in Port Townsend and are privileged to enjoy the unusually good restaurants we have for such a small town. Alchemy is one of just a very few that fills a particular niche - fine dining in quiet elegant surroundings. Our Monday night dinner before a movie at The Rose was accompanied by an excellent classical guitar player. Of course the food was good, but worthy of special mention was the fact that the service was professional and the restaurant was quiet - none of the clatter or dishes or staff exclamations that typifies many of our otherwise good restaurants. As an extra - the 4 - 6pm "happy hour" offers a selection of good $5.00 cocktails and interesting wines.

We had a "dinner" at Alchemy on the bar side a couple of months ago after a performance at Fort Worden. While we walked in before closing, it was obvious they weren't thrilled we were there so close to their going home. Food was only passable that night. After hearing several locals talk about how good the food was, we tried them again. This time we were seated in the dining room and had a very good service person. She made the experience quite enjoyable. Appetizer & entrees were wonderful as was the wine. Husband's dessert was also but mine wasn't quite up to speed (flourless chocolate cake). We discussed how we might have a new favorite non-Asian restaurant in town but I'd say it's still in a close race with Fountain Cafe right down the block.

Very happy to say that this is a wonderful dining experience to add to Port Townsend's stable.

We had the duck breast and lamb shanks. Both were delicious. The lamb was done perfectly with the meat moist, yet falling easily off the bone. Nice selection of wines.
