Lovely meal start to finish. The restaurant is charming and the staff so hospitable. The food was perfectly prepared and presented beautifully. The wine list is impressively extensive and we were grateful for guidance from our server. Don’t skip dessert!

The food here is always awesome. It’s not cheap, but you definitely get what you pay for. They do a beautiful job not just with the meat and fish, but also the vegetables, and the presentation is beautiful. The server is very knowledgeable about the alcoholic drinks and wines. Outstanding dishes are the mushroom mushroom, halibut, and duck. The burger is also great.

Food was excellent! Everything we ordered was delicious. Service was a bit on the slow side; we weren’t served our entrees until over an hour after being seated. Our server was very apologetic about the delay though. The one thing I would suggest improvement on would be to space out the outdoor tables a bit more for social distancing and add a couple more heat lamps. Will definitely be back!

Best restaurant in Southern Oregon, by far. We loved the chefs creations! Our waitress gave us recommendations and helped guide us through the menu. The ribeye was the best I’ve ever had. They top it with bone marrow butter end it melts in your mouth. Duck confit, foie gras, tuna carpaccio, the lamb were also ordered. Every detail in each dish was perfect. Flavors were delightful. Their wine list is extensive, offering great local wines and some good pinots. The dining room area was cozy and intimate, perfect for an anniversary. If you’re looking for the best restaurant in town, Alchemy is the place to go. Great service, excellent food and a perfect atmosphere. We were told they are opening a new place across the way soon as well. Looking forward to trying that out!

This is not a cheap and easy place to dine. It is definitely a "splurge." But, OH! what a splurge. All three of us uttered a worshipful "Oh! Wow!" at least once and the two of us who refused to miss out on the dessert offerings both experienced a fork-dropping "Holy CRAP!" moment. The service was fantastic—not once watching any of us with our mouths full, as well as being cheerful and knowledgeable. Our three hour dinner was worth every penny, minute, and calorie!

This chef has a unique take on what would be considered “typical.” For instance, the Caesar salad came as a molded circle of greens and croutons, which spreads out to look like a typical salad when the diner digs her fork in it. Much fun! Likewise, the halibut was advertised as being accompanied by hasselback potatoes. However, what was presented was the halibut and three or four potato pieces that looked like they had been slices of the whole potato. Much more appealing and easier than a whole sliced potato. Along with the halibut and potato slices, the chef had added red quinoa and riced cauliflower, which rounded out a very tasty entree. We each had the halibut entree, and shared a Caesar salad. What a fun meal!

Very slow in the beginning. About 45 min to get drinks but very quick once they got everything started. Confused some table numbers and just seemed very off that evening. We usually have great service. Was served soup with no spoon and had to wait a while before getting to eat.

Food was excellent and our server was incredibly kind.
Just not worth 400$

We always enjoy our dinner and the exceptional service we receive here. I had the Corn Ricotta Caramelle Pasta. It was not what I excepted but was surprised at how delicious it tasted. The Lamb Osso Bucco was also very delicious.
Of course the drinks are always wonderfully delightful as well.
The knowledge the mixologist have is very impressive.
A special shout out to Walker, she is the best ever and I appreciate her remembering what we like.
And the Chef he really did a great job. I’m already hungry for more.
