    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!

    Alchemy was just what we hoped for. Everything on the menu looked fabulous, and our choices were delicious. Situated high in the mountains overlooking Scottsdale, the view made it well worth the drive. And the prices were reasonable. Do not miss this place.

    We usually go here for special occasions. It is a little expensive, especially the wines. But well worth it for celebrating. We would go more often if the tariff were a little lower.

    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.

    We were pleased that we were seated at the exact time of our reservation and that they were able to seat us outside as requested in our reservation. The waiter gave us plenty of time to enjoy our drinks and checked back infrequently until we were ready to order. All the meals were prepared as requested and everything came out wonderfully prepared. We will return.

    Went here for my Mom's 80th birthday, which was also Easter, so a brunch day. Brunch was excellent, a good variety of choices, well spaced out, not crowded. Everything was cooked perfectly. We sat by the windows, with an incredible view of Fountain Hills. I let them know via Open Table reservation that it was my Moms birthday, everyone wished her happy birthday. Our primary server was attentive, friendly and efficient. My Mom had had surgery on her foot the week prior, so was using a walker. The staff, without being over bearing was there each time she needed a hand, from carrying her brunch plate to helping her with the entry door to the bathroom. The food and view were excellent, but the staff made this experience the best!
