Food was very good burnt ends and Pad Thai is particular. The Menu is very limited. The service could have been a little more attentive. The room is very pretty and the side away from the bar is like eating in an old Victorian place. Table spacing very nice. Parking easy as there is a garage right behind by 1/2 a block.

The food was very good! I was disappointed with the size of the lobster tail in my dish. It looked like a baby lobster.

I don’t think there’s any food items that Johnny’s restaurants offer that we don’t thoroughly enjoy! 😋 🍽 The sticky rib appetizer is an absolute must!! The meat literally falls off the bone and I don’t know what is in the sauce that makes it so incredible but you will be wanting more! I ordered the shrimp and lobster pad Thai and my fiancé had the New York strip. I felt the pad Thai was probably the best value; very filling meal & I even have leftovers! The New York strip, Swiss chard & mashed potatoes are always a great classic! We enjoyed our fun cocktails! The art is just absolutely stunning! We finished the night off with an incredible bottle of Belle Glos & the best blueberry cheesecake ever! If you have been saving this gem for a date night, don’t wait much longer! You won’t be disappointed!

The interior of the restaurant is absolutely gorgeous, filled with delicious art.
Whoever did the interior design deserves an award.
The restaurant was pretty quiet for a Thursday evening - but we arrived at 5 pm and left before 7 pm, so it likely got busy later.
The food was delicious and the service was great.
Highly recommend this place!

Cocktails are very cool. Bacon-wrapped dates were decadent. Both the lamb chops and the shrimp/lobster pasta were excellent. Service was very good. Music was a touch loud.

This was our first time at Alchemi and our server, Miles, was super nice! He definitely made our experience enjoyable! The food was okay, the portion sizes weren’t worth the price (the cheese on the charcuterie was literally the size of cheese cubes). We’ll give it another try though.

I found Alchemi while scrolling through Open Table and decided to give it a shot before going to a show in Detroit. The food was outstanding. Try their salmon or the shrimp and lobster pad thai. They have a seasonal, farm-to-table menu, so there are always new surprises too. And their craft cocktails are super fun and delicious. We'll be back!

Was drawn by farm to table marketing. While this place is not “purist” as the owner explained, they always prefer a local or Michigan choice over others. So Lamb comes from MI, but Piedmont beef is not local. Burnt ends outstanding. Papardelle with lamb outstanding. Two of us enjoyed a meal and a drink for $100 before tip.

Short staffed, so we knew to stay patient. Drinks were incredible. The shrimp on the pad thai could have been cooked more, seared or grilled longer.

The bacon wrapped dates were great. Everything else was so disappointing. There was a great amount of shrimp and Lobster in the Pad Thai but there was something in it that was like sand or gravel that made it uneatable. It was also too salty. The lamb ragu was way too salty and the noodles were overcooked. The menu looks great, but the food was so disappointing.

I went with my 100 year old mother, who is pretty deaf, even with her hearing aids. Happily, the restaurant was not noisy. I have food issues and the chef came and helped me navigate the menu. He would have made something special for me but I ordered the steak meal which was okay as-is. It is the most expensive entree and we both ordered it. I don’t normally order steak when I go out, but this was absolutely delicious. So we’re the sides. I ordered medium rare and my mom ordered rare. They came out the same so the restaurant only charged us for one. Too generous. I left an extra large tip and look forward to going back. Everyone was so nice! The art was good, too.
