Ingredients, preparation, and presentation were first rate. Experience was helped by a very knowledgable waiter who was able to effortless describe the dishes at a depth beyond the normal recitation of the list of ingredients.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMVery enjoyable evening. FoodVery enjoyable evening. Food and wine were surprisingly delicious.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThe brunch selection was excellent.The brunch selection was excellent. The smoked fish appetizer was awesome - they smoke their own fish on site.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a find! Only problemWhat a find! Only problem is that if I tell everyone how wonderful it is, I may not be able to find a table. . .!!!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat option for CeliacsI have eaten at Alchemy twice and both times I have had a wonderful experience! I have Celiac Disease, and not only are wait staff and chefs very well versed in gluten free food preparation, they are also very accommodating and willing to modify selections that I might otherwise not be able to eat.
It is very challenging & stressful as a Celiac to eat out, but I feel very comfortable eating at Alchemy. Their food is innovative and delicious and the service is amazing!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMQueen for the nightOur 2nd time at Alchemy.We love the Manhattan feel of this place.The cocktails are crafted with layers of flavor & the wine selection is stellar yet affordable.Our waiter anticipated all our needs without interupting once.The salads were beautiful(I had to take a picture)This place does fish!We had an Ahi tuna, a roasted red snapper,a Hawaiian sword fish and lamb chops.The 4 of us passed the plates and smiled in food Nirvana.There is a very strong presence of ownership.We felt so welcomed by the lovely hostess.A genuine smile never left her face.We were too full for dessert..next trip.Every table we saw had a personal visit from the owner.We cant wait to return and sit upstairs.That dining room is extra cool.I forgot BRUSSEL SPROUTS (OMG)4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent but rushedI love Alchemy--it's one of my very favorite restaurants ever. The chef is consistently creative and I personally have never had anything less than a fabulous dish. The oysters were amazing and my tuna was to die for. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars this night is because my husband ordered his lamb medium and it was rare. He regretted not sending it back. As for service, our waiter was polite and attentive. However, he cleared our plates when one of our diners was clearly still eating. She was leaving town that evening and we wanted to be in no hurry. She was also paying for dinner! I asked him to stop but he didn't understand and finally I had to put my hand down and say stop! Why rush your diners???4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMNice DinnerGreat bartender who described some unique cocktails on the menu. Our drinks were delicious. Great staff. Our server was very friendly and attentive when we needed him to be. The food was pretty good. Maybe I was expecting it to be outstanding which it wasn't and so I only gave it 3 stars. We did enjoy it and would return. The menu looks great, but of course, you can only try so many things at one meal. We had a nice time and would recommend Alchemy.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb food and service.This was our first dinner at Alchemy. The food (snapper and crab cakes and vegetables ) was wonderful. We plan to return with our family to celebrate an upcoming birthday.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe place to go for dinningThe place to go for dinning in Hampden. Finally some place to go now other then that horrible Cafe Hon.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved It!!!!cant wait to returnWe have a new favorite restaurant.Scallops seared atop yellow pepper zucchini risotto.YUM Pork carnitas flat bread with an apple,fig & cherry chutney was a great combo.I had a pan seared swordfish from Hawaii served with chili relleno & sweet potato tempura.My date had the chili rubbed pork tenderloin. It cut like butter.Oven roasted veggies were great but OMG..brussel sprouts w/ bacon & cream.(need I say more)we shared a flourless chocolate cake finished with an avocado choc. mousse. I was a skeptic but wow,it was just plain fantastic.The cocktails were excellent and the wine list is top notch and affordable.We felt welcome from the time the hostess greated us until the owner held the door to say good bye.Our waiter Kyle was perfect.Kudos!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMy date and I both orderedMy date and I both ordered fish. The tuna entree was outstanding. Sushi-grade flown in from Hawaii. The presentation was beautiful. I only wish they served wasabi with it instead of olive tapenade. The swordfish special was also exceptionally good. Fresh swordfish cooked perfectly is hard to find. It was firm and moist and served over creamy polenta. I could eat here every week!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe missed you JMMJMM was not there but it was a wonderful dining experience3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMInteresting cocktails; interestingInteresting cocktails; interesting food.

Crab bisque was the best I've ever eaten,texture of velvet, lumps the size of quarters.We foodies have never seen a salad with brule avocado. True magic.I had lamb chops with a lavander demi glace, perfect.My date had a braised beef short rib with fresh blackberry jus,it just fell off the bone.Shushi tuna & swordfish both flown in from Hawaii that morning.The cocktail list is impossible to choose from (you want them all)We shared a bacon housemade caramel tart.Off the charts.The wine came with a real Sommelier who floats through the dining room visiting every table-found out she's the owner.Our waiter was stellar, knew the menu inside & out.The entire staff was genuine and gracious.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first experience and wasOur first experience and was extremely pleasant.
