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.
Great menu, well executed, fresh ingredients.
Soup was excellent.
It was our 1st time and it was lovely. Food and service were excellent.
High quality, delicious food and wine! Great experience overall! Will go back for sure!
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!
Highly recommend if you are in Ashland.
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 fabtastic drinks. Go there if you can.
We enjoyed our meal and are happy to support local restaurants during this odd time.
Thank you so much for joining us. As you said, these are odd times. We appreciate the support immensely and will continue to try and improve on things as we go forward. All the best.
Great food in a beautiful setting. Service, as always, outstanding.
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.
Thanks for coming in. I'm glad that you enjoyed yourself, and thank you for the feedback about the pasta. We will be sure to discuss this with the chef.
Impeccable service......food was outstanding.
Thank you for joining us! So glad that you enjoyed yourselves!
Greg, the server, was outstanding. His knowledge the wine list was helpfuu. The food was excellent
Thank you so much for joining us. I will be sure to share that with Greg.
Birthday dinner! Wow Alchemy what can I say! The dinner was perfect. Service is always exceptional.
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.
Thank you for taking the time to join us. We greatly appreciate the compliments and we will take a look at what might be causing the drinks to take a little extra time. I hope you can join us again soon.
Pricey food but very good. Exceptional service.
Thank you so much for joining us!
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!! Thank you for all you do in making my night so special!!🍷Cheers!
Thank you so much for joining us! We look forward to having you back especially when the weather is nicer.
Service and ambience were great, however wasn’t impressed with the food. I had the pasta special and it was flavorless. My husband had the ribeye and it wasn’t anything special.
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
Wonderful decor and seating. The menu and awesome choices from staters to dessert. The wine list and cocktails are plentiful and interesting.
Great birthday dinner for my husband! The duck and pork tenderloin were delicious! Super tasty cocktails in the bar before dinner. Can’t wait to go back.
NYE Bree was awesome!
The food was well conceived and excellently prepared. The staff were super helpful and nice. A wonderful New Years Eve dinner.
Fabulous experience! Wonderful menu and Cora was our great server. A gem in Ashland.
Food and service was exceptional! Thank you!

Thank you for the kind words. So glad to hear that it was an enjoyable time.
creative & delicious cuisine
Beautiful, elegant restaurant with excellent food!
Thank you for coming in.
Great dinner and a great waiter, witty and knowledgeable!
We are from out of town and had our small dog with us. We sat on the outdoor patio on a warm October night and enjoyed the ambiance and excellent food. Our waitress was fantastic and paid perfect attention to us!
Absolutely fantastic meal. We came in with a large group and couldn’t have been more pleased. The steak was perfect, and the dessert was amazing. Our servers Peter and Tom were great.
Thanks for coming in! So glad to hear you enjoyed your meal. We'll be sure to let your servers know. Hope you can join us again soon.
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.
Filet was not medium well . Way overdone.
Ice cream was soft and melted. Unusual dining experience here.
Ordered Ono. Very poorly prepared. Very dry, should of said something but our server, Breanna, was doing a great job. Not her fault. Salads had too much dressing.
Chef on vacation, off night??
Not what we expect at Alchemy.
Thank you so much for joining us. I am so sorry to hear you felt the ono was not well prepared. We are always happy to fix anything we can when we are made aware. I know that Breanna would have done everything possible to make sure things were as perfect as possible for you had you let her know. I hope that you join us again and that we can show you the evening you were expecting.
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.
