Good atmosphere and food. Portions are entirely too small for price and service was terrible. I understand staff shortages are real but the place was not crowded what so ever and our server was not just not on the ball or even polite when interacting with us, frankly she was rude and had an attitude.

The menu is small but filled with options for both vegan/vegetarian and meat eaters. Perfect for a date night as there is an art gallery before entering the restaurant. Everything was wonderful! Definitely get the spicy tomato ravioli you will NOT be disappointed😍😍😍

Food took a long time even though other tables received the same dish before us. Food came out just a little above room temperature. Very disappointed because I heard such great things about this place.

AMAZING! Creative, flavorful vegan dishes...wonderful service too and we met the chef Ken Aponte who described his passion for the science behind his amazing creations. As an artist myself, I ove that it's an art gallery AND a restaurant. I highly recommend Alchemy and we will certainly be back often!

Honestly I was a little thrown off at first. It looked like a fixed up garage but the service was by far the best we have ever had! Everyone was super nice and helpful. The red sauce was the best I’ve had. I’ll definitely be back.

We always have a pleasant experience here. Excellent food. Friendly staff. The manager always greets us and checks on us several times. A previous time, we had ordered on-line and an error caused our food to be delayed. The manager personally apologized and comped our food -way above and beyond! The food is always fresh and perfectly prepared. Can’t say enough of how great this place is!

Really disappointed in our dining experience and will not be returning anytime soon. This was my second time dining here but my husbands first. I had raved about it for months but Unfortunately it was night and day from when I visited back in April. The server was extremely slow, we didn’t get a few items we ordered and then when we pointed it out they acted ‘surprised’, the reason they didn’t know is because we rarely saw her. We had to ask to refill our water multiple times before we got more (which still took over 20mins) and were never offered to take more drink orders for the wine/cocktail. She was rude to us at the end after one of the small plates came out after our large plates. The manager was apologetic, thankfully, but it didn’t make up for the hour and half of horrible service. We sat outside and while waiting on our check they started picking up all the other table and chairs and staking them since we were the last ones on the patio…. It was only 10pm. Could they not wait until we left? It was really rude and made us feel like our dining experience didn’t matter. Maybe there is a reason why they could ‘pack up’ early, they can’t fill their reservations because the experience and quality of food is struggling. I hope the managers see this and make adjustments. There is a lot of competition of nice restaurants in Charlotte now, unless they get their act together don’t waste your time. They need to train their staff better, new is not excuse for rarely checking in on the diners or being rude/defensive. We actually had a ton of patience and tried to make the most of the night but when we only get a few date nights a month since it takes coordination with babysitters, it make even a bigger impression on us when the experience is bad.

Fries came out cold, drinks taste odd, and simple requests like ketchup is weirdly not available: but overall, great upscale atmosphere.

Three of us had salads with grilled chicken and it was extremely dry and tasteless. My fourth fellow patron is vegan and the restaurant was completely out of vegan cheese which was the only reason we came to the restaurant. The server was extremely nice as was the bartender who brought us drinks but it took a long time to get cocktails. We were there for a birthday celebration and it was a mediocre experience.

Great food, Great atmosphere, VERY slow service. Do not come if you are starving. Our server was great but the kitchen was very slow with bringing our meals and cocktails. When the food came out is was DELICIOUS, hot, and had beautiful presentation. Would come back, but maybe have a snack before you go!

The service was slow and unwelcoming. My cocktail was 98% vodka and 1% juice, and when I asked for soda water… they were completely out. The food was bland, cold, and took 45 minutes to come out. The ambience was lovely. Spend your money elsewhere

We really had high expectations for this place and ended up leaving very disappointed. We had reservations for 7:30 and were seated right away outside. The outside seating area is beautiful and quiet. We were greeted and ordered our drinks and very shortly after ordered the cheese board as an appetizer. After a whole hour, we finally got the cheese board. Within that hour, our server did not come to check on us or explain why a cheese board was taking an hour. We had to ask another server to send ours over because ours was no where to be found. By the time the cheese board came out and we finally got ahold of our server, we were all set with this place and ended up going somewhere else for entrees.

The food was great. My California visitors pronounced it "dank". The service was iffy at best. Super nice waitstaff, young kids, they were trying really hard, but the place wasn't full. Had to ask the hostess to get us water, get our check, etc. The food took 50 minutes to come out (this was Noon on a Sunday, place was half full). Again, all dishes were super tasty. Pricing was reasonable. They seated us in the "event space" I guess because there were 6 of us. Only one table in the main restaurant would seat 6, but we were basically alone in a garage type space. It was weird. I would definitely ask for the main dining room next time. But overall we would go again for sure. Just needs some more management oversight on the floor.
