Because of Covid-19 we requested outdoor seating and were given a nice table on the porch of this charming old inn. The waitress was excellent and our food was delicious. I ordered the salmon and was asked how I would like it cooked--an indicator of a good chef. It was cooked to perfection.

We had dinner here and it was delicious! I had the Chef's pasta, which was fettuccine noodles with vegetables in a light white wine broth. Yum! My wife had their vegan Perfect Burger (house-made) which was also delicious. We shared a green salad to start that had fresh greens and sliced strawberries. The dressing was a vinaigrette that perfectly complemented the greens and gave the strawberries a totally different flavor. The house-made lemonade was a thirst-quencher on a hot day. Will go back!

Alchemy offered a luxurious escape from the trials of our Coronavirus lockdown. The menu was ample and everything was delicious. Of particular note was the wine list--an amazing array of Oregon selections from multiple years. We drank a 1998 vintage from northern Oregon that was outstanding.

Given the Covid we felt very safe and we were eating outside in a beautiful area. Care was taken to make sure the Covid requirements were met. The food and drinks were delicious. The charcuterie was fabulous and we shared a burger. All was great and it was a wonderful evening.

Great food, great service; friendly and knowledgeable. Pasta was a bit too salty, due to olives, and the waiter offered a re-do, but time was limited, so had to decline.
I would go back in a heartbeat.

Out first time trying this restaurant. Amazing!! We enjoy trying different and new things when we dine out. Alchemy did not disappoint. While there were menu selections that we would consider to be on the more "standard" side of things, there were some unique selections as well - and our food was excellent. Not to be missed were the selections from the bar. Unique craft cocktails are available as well as traditional drinks. This is the kind of place you could visit over and over and have a different experience for your palate every time. It was also a bonus to dine inside a converted large, old, multi-story home (Victorian style I think). No worries, they also have an elevator if you are mobility-challenged. We'll definitely be back.

Wonderful meal with great service. The food was interesting, beautifully presented, and delicious. The cocktails are fantastic with a beautiful wine selection. The setting is intimate and casual, but upscale. My only request would be to change the delay in the cocktails. It was at least 15 minutes before our first round was served. Otherwise, I would not change a thing.

Dinner here was outstanding!! It was quiet and relaxing...such a breath of fresh air with so many noisy restaurants around. This I must say is my favorite....favorite restaurant in all of Ashland. I can’t wait to come on a warm summer night to sit on the quaint patio sipping wine and enjoying such excellent food ! Bravo to everyone who works there! I will certainly be a regular!!

We were traveling and had stayed at the Winchester inn before but the restaurant was closed. We had delicious food in the bar so figured the dining room would be exceptional. It was! I had the duck and husband had the pasta. Each of the salads were excellent. We can’t wait to return! The Inn is also wonderful

I hope the problem in the kitchen gets resolved. We waited 1hour 20 minutes to get our entrees. Two of the meals , burgers, came rare after this time, as opposed to medium. We ordered nothing esoteric. As well, the wine we ordered was not available. The server, who kept promising the food was just about ready, finally comped us for 3 dinners, as well he should have. I have been coming here for decades and this experience was terrible . Our guests, first timers, will not be coming back. Sad evening at Alchemy. Something is very wrong.

Located in and adjacent to a boutique hotel (The Winchester) in a historic, Victorian home, the appearance as you approach is very compelling. And the ambiance inside is charming--we had no doubt upon arriving that we made a good choice. Our server was attentive but not overbearing; we had tickets for the theater later and were easily out within 90 minutes, without pressure. But the food was disappointing, perhaps in part reflecting our choices. The radicchio salad was all radicchio--the blue cheese dressing helped but didn't solve the problem. My dining companion had steelhead which she felt was very good, but the serving was large and intimidating. I ordered ono--don't often see this fish on a menu--but it was tasteless and dry; it needed a sauce of some kind. A high point of the evening was our server's pun--"Oh, No!"--when I shared my thoughts about the entree. That said, cocktails and wine were very good. This was an interesting experience but with many good options in Ashland, we are unlikely to return when we are back in the area.
