    our Mother’s Day Dinner was excellent. the drinks were to die for and the ambiance was spot on. I had the Lamb Ragu and it was perfect. the burrata was just OK, their take on what should be creamy goodness was a bit off with the spinach stuffing and what seemed like they seared the burrata which made it a little tough. the main entrees were delicious and the creme brûlée was superb.

    Everything - food and drinks - was excellent! The cocktail menu is very creative. We had the dates wrapped in bacon as appetizer. Yum! I had the Michigan lamb ragu for dinner. Unbelievable! I had some left over so brought it home; can’t wait to have it for lunch. If you come here, try the ragu! We had the strawberry cheesecake for dessert. It’s huge, definitely shareable. The crust is cinnamon-sugar dusted like an elephant ear. So good! I highly recommend this restaurant. And the service was great! Rachel was great at checking in with us, and food came out very quickly. Will definitely be back!

    Wow! This place was amazing! The best farm to table place I have ever been to. My daughter and I HAD to try some of their hand crafted drinks. I got the final rose, I was not disappointed. We had the wagyu and the tikka chicken. Both dishes were melt in your mouth delicious. The service was great! Really nothing bad to say about this place except that the noise level was pretty high but that may have just been because they were pretty busy.

    Apps were very good and full of flavor. Had the chicken tikka entree and lamb ragu with pasta entree and both really lacked in flavor. Needed more salt and maybe more seasoning. Also, the booths are really uncomfortable with the bench backs too straight and the table too low. Despite these things, great cocktails and ambience.

    All food items we ordered were excellent, beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. The dining area is very nicely decorated and is inviting. We also liked the fact that the place was not as noisy as many others despite the crowd. A suggestion for the bar - Please consider offering a draught beer selection. All in all, a fabulous dining experience 😀 Will definitely return soon 👍

    Our first visit here was overall pretty nice. We made bar reservations and were promptly seated at the bar. The bartender was nice but very busy with specialty drink orders. The menu had a number of interesting dishes, including a shrimp and lobster pad Thai and a beef wagyu encrusted dish. The menu prices were minimum $30 up to about 50 maximum. Not cheap, but not exorbitant either. That being said, I would give the beef wagyu a rating of six out of 10. I was expecting more of a beef Wellington type of entrée, but it was more of a Filo encrusted pot roast. It was good if a little fatty, but I'm not sure I would order it again. My partner had the pad Thai and she enjoyed it. They gave us a lot of shrimp. I helped her with it a bit as I did not find my dinner to be very filling. Overall, the atmosphere is great, although I would not recommend coming at just before sunset as the light coming in through the window is blinding when seated at the bar. I would visit again, but probably choose alternate dishes. One final note it would be great if the bar had a mocktail menu.

    We went with friends and all very satisfied and would return. Menu is very interesting and great selection of wine and Japanese whiskey. My wheat vodka based cocktail with grapefruit and lemon was perfectly balanced. My friend really enjoyed her salmon with the Thai sauce and we both had the alchemi salad which was delicious. Her husband said that his chicken tikka was perfect in terms of the sauce. Appetizers were shared were all interesting and very good: beluga lentils , stuffed dates, Thai ribs. My husband’s steak was cooked just right as ordered. I loved the crème brûlée with luxardo cherry and would return to get this.alone again!

    I love this place! I took my son and daughter-in-law there last night for dinner and we were all impressed with our service, food and ambiance. I had the salmon and the flavors were excellent! My son had the chicken tikka and he loved it. My daughter-in-law had the wagyu something, and she loved it! It’s expensive, but I recommend it.

    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.

    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.
