    We had a cocktail on the outdoor dining patio enjoying the views of Four Peaks, Fountain Hills and the National Forest. We were not rushed by the wait staff, but were attended to when needed. The appetizer, dinner entrées and dessert were fantastic. This is the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion or for a romantic meal.

    This visit we were celebrating my Mom's 91st birthday! We had intended to enjoy the sunset view, but instead we had the stormy weather, which made for an equally interesting ambiance! The food was exceptional - starting with the cocktails all the way through dessert. The soup was divine, a cream of mushroom and spinach. All three entrees were bursting with flavor. Service was attentive and personalized. My Mom was treated like a queen. Highly recommend for special occasions or for a nice evening with great food, drinks and ambiance.

    Was very disappointed that my request for a window seat wasn't fulfilled despite making request 3 weeks in advance. Was told these seats are on first come basis. I don't consider eating dinner at 5:30 PM on Saturday evening a viable option. Seating requests with a reservation should be considered

    Alchemy is a gem of a restaurant! Great food and service,and the view is one of a kind! It is the "off-season," so the menu is a little limited vs the fall/winter/spring, but there are still excellent choices and all are tasty! Beat restaurant in Fountain Hills by a large margin!

    We dined with another couple and had a fabulous dinner. Everything was delicious and the chef at Alchemy is doing an amazing job! Three of us had the butterfish and it was excellent. The salmon terrine appetizer, and black bean soup were delicious. We have dined at Alchemy several times and this dinner was one of the best!

    This is a unique and special place. The food is incredible. The menu is always new and fit for a king. The view, spectacular. After dinner it is always nice to grab a drink and just walk around the property. This place gives you the feeling of being in an upscale private residence. I will never grow tired of the food, the atmosphere or the stellar staff. Worth the trip!

    Service was lousy. Received water as soon as we were seated, then sat around for 10 minutes before the waitress bothered with us. Turns out she was the same waitress who had walked past us a couple of times without acknowledging our presence. Finally, after chatting with the next table for a couple of minutes, she came by our table to introduce herself. Two other tables that were seated after us received bread and yet still nothing for us. The bread guy walked past our table after dropping off at the two tables after us, looked at our empty table and kept walking. Never brought us any bread. Finally, when he delivered our salads, asked if we needed anything else. We told him some bread would be nice, took another 10 minutes.
