What a great find!!! From the warm greeting, the ambience, the service received and the food, everything was just perfect!!! Our seating was at the bar where we enjoyed perfectly prepared mimosas with our brunch meal. Alchemy was just what the doctor ordered after flying and having an overnight stay in Charlotte.

While we love exploring and checking out new places, they will definitely see us again in the very near future.

We really enjoyed ourselves! This super allergy and dietary restriction friendly spot had great service (thank you Tariq!), interesting ambiance, and good food. The fried artichokes were particularly awesome!

We love the music and the art. The servers were very friendly. The vegan charcuterie plate was very delicious. Both of our entrees were fantastic too. I like how Alchemy makes sure to understand dietary restrictions of diners.

We had the best experience here for brunch. It’s vegan forward, and we’re more of “regular menu” people. We ordered Japanese pancakes, which were gorgeous with flowers and had great texture and flavor. The mushroom hash has an option for short rib, and it is absolutely fantastic. So savory and perfectly prepared. All were big sized portions. It was peaceful, and our server was great. Highly recommend. They have a mimosa with st. Germaine elder flower liquor - order that! Side note: you enter via a gallery, which is interesting. Their back patio is very cute too.

I really appreciated how the host asked about food allergies when we arrived, as I have them. The servers were attentive without being intrusive, and the food was amazing. My husband and I are not vegetarian but we eat a ton of veggies. I like that we could find enough of both here. Our party of three tried 5 dishes ( the fried artichokes, mushrooms, focaccia, spinach salad, and scallops), and they knocked each one out of the park.

Extremely well crafted dishes, most like nothing you will find anywhere else. It is our go-to place for friends visiting the area and for special occasions - it's a 1 hour 20 minute drive from Lancaster SC otherwise we would come more often - but SO worth the trip. The staff is wonderful - Josh will craft the MOST amazing cocktails, and Ken & the kitchen staff are magicians!! Highly Highly recommend!!!

It was a good overall experience…my only concern is they take reservations till 9:30 and close at 10 and we felt rushed out, try to go a little earlier to avoid this. Good and drinks were good and the Bartender Josh did a GREAT job explaining the drinks and food.

Late reservation handled efficiently and greetings very positive. Service attendant helpful attentive but not obtrusive. Helpful with menu options since this was our initial visit. Asked about and effectively handled dietary restrictions. Appetizer unique but familiar with nice level of flavor and spicy hotness. Portions nicely sized. Not overly large but filling. Vegan focused but comfortably accommodating to non-vegan.

All of the personnel at Alchemy are charming and really make you feel that they wish your time at this restaurant to be special. Delicious--and original--food in a contemporary ambiance. My only suggestion is that the music be turned down a bit.

This place was beautiful, the food was great, and our server was very attentive. I appreciated that there was a vegetarian emphasis to the menu BUT they still had delicious options with meat- that meant everyone in our group was happy. I could see this place becoming very popular, but it's still emerging, so grab a reservation while it's still quaint!!

This is our favorite brunch spot. Excellent unique vegan options with good size portions (and their french fries are delicious if you want something a little less healthy), tastefully spaced tables, rotating art exhibits, friendly staff. My only complaint is that I wish they had better more varied tea options since I don't drink alcohol or coffee.

I ordered the short rib risotto and it was served cold.
I advised the manager and all they did was bring a new one, no one apologized for the inconvenience.
I advised it was my daughters birthday and all they did was tell her happy birthday. Very disappointed

After 10 minutes had to ask if we would get acknowledged by a server for anything. Then our server was the bartender so you can imagine how hurried she was. not at all what you expect when paying in the 25-40$ a plate place.

Once seated we were immediately greeted by a male server and offered water. He then came back for our drink order but we were not ready. Next a lady server came back to get our drink order. Then she answered a few food questions. But the the guy came back and we ordered our food with him. It was very confusing. We each had a small plate (Caesar salad with chicken and the shrimp gnocchi). Both were great! However, after our check was dropped off by our male wAiter, he never came back for payment. Food was great but the service definitely needs some continuity.

Great restaurant! Food was good, cocktails were great. Service was great. The ambiance of the restaurant was very appealing and I love the art gallery. At times it seemed the music was a little loud, but it was ok.
The temperature got a little hot and humid towards the end of the meal.
Though the staff made sure our water cups were never empty, the trend of Luke warm water with no ice is not my preference. An iced water wound be nice in such a warm day.
Overall, had a great time and will be back.

Our service was not equipped with the skills to serve and focus on his tasks. At times he would disappear after a request was made. The HVAC was broken so it was warm inside the restaurant. The food selections were great - service not so great.

Great experience! Everyone was super attentive with excellent service provided all the way around. Our server Ivy was super fun and did a wonderful job. The manager Erin was also present and engaged which was refreshing. The food was unique and delicious. The cocktails were also extra yummy. Have not had anything bad here.
