    Everyone in the group loved their dinner order. I had the surf and turf 4-course dinner - the lobster and steak were both good but the soup and mashed potato were too salty! I find that to be true with most of the restaurants, especially with the soup! I don't normally orde soup for that reason but it came with the meal. I wish they reduce the salt and let the guests add it if needed.

    We went here for Valentine’s Day for the first time and were blown away. The flavor profiles were complex and different than what you have anywhere else. The calamari salad and pad Thai were outstanding. The chef came out and chatted with us and they gave us his cook ok as we were heading out. Great experience overall. Definitely on our repeat list.

    We had a terrific dinner at Alchemi. The ambiance is warm, cozy with a little moody in it. The service was great and the food was some of the best I have had in a long time. We shared the Gruyère spread and crab and shrimp cakes which were both wonderful, and the spread is incredibly craveable. I loved the fresh salad with all sorts of add ins to it like pomegranate seeds. We both had the salmon in coconut curry sauce and it was so good. The only disappointment was the salmon skin wasn’t as crispy as we expected from the menu. The dish otherwise was amazing. We finished with the crime brûlée and I was some of the best. Crème brûlée can often be disappointing but Alchemi’s was perfect! High marks all around!

    Great service and atmosphere, but the menu doesn't qualify as farm-to-table to us. No vegetables or herbs in any of the entrees we had (pad thai, ragu, salmon). The barratta appetizer promised fruit and I don't remember any. Very small appetizers that were a disappointment.

    Amazing service, great concept! Food was a bit over ambitious- almost too many flavors and too much salt/spice. Good mocktails and very nice ambiance. Crab cakes and salad were delicious!

    We did the four course Surf and Turf, we never received our dessert. Sitting and having drinks with friends we didn’t even notice until after we left. Service was a little slow as it took a long time to get refills and my salad was given to one of the other guests.
