Local Restaurateurs Chef Michael Matassa and his pastry chef/sommelier wife

With a passion for fusion and a flair for molecular cooking, Debi and Chef Michael are bringing a unique dining experience to Bel Air.

Highly recommend the cauliflower appetizer. Had the Indian chicken dish - creative and fresh ingredients. Always find something new here and the bar staff is top-shelf.

I have been here before and the food was excellent. I guess the kitchen was having an off night.
The food was okay and cold. I will however give it another try. The wine was good and service was excellent.

1st Bad experience here...Specials never told to us, had to ask...Appetizers: grilled romaine salad and shrimp and grits… Shrimp and grits were delicious… Romain salad seemed wilted and not grilled and was actually not enjoyed… Main courses were steak alchemy which was ordered medium… Steak was served exceptionally rare almost purple... I asked server what came with the steak, were there potatoes(garlic smash) or not… Said all sides were Ala-Carte, so I ordered potatoes on the side… Guess what? Potatoes were underneath my raw steak , so I had 2 orders of potato’s...My wife’s Snapper seemed like it came out of the microwave…It tasted very bland.... first time for everything… I’m sure it was a busy night… Hopefully it’s a blip...

The good was mediocre. I had French onion soup and the crab dip. The crab dip was so rich, and the French onion was not good at all. My husband said his steak was good. Other than that was a nicee spot, but I would not go back based on the food.

We went early on Valentine’s Day to avoid the rush. My husband ordered Crab Bisque followed by Seafood Carbonara. I ordered Caramelized Avocado & Baby Greens Salad followed by Pecan Crusted Lamb Chops. Everything was delicious. We took home carrot cake for dessert later. Love this place.

As always the meal and service were superb!
I get the Cauliflower Bites every time I’m at Alchemy Elements. I could overdose on them. 😉I had the vegetable ramen for my entree which was a delicious vegetarian option. They always have an excellent vegetarian entree which varies with each season.
Dessert was the brownie with caramel sauce which was the perfect sweet ending to a memorable culinary delight.
Thank you AE!

We had excellent service and the food was very good. The bar tender was also very friendly. One issue. We were celebrating our elderly mother’s a birthday on a Sunday evening and was told that they would not put a candle in her dessert. The hostess told me the owner does not like to do so ??? Do not go for a birthday.
