Very nice experience! Hip and fun backed up by outstanding food and service. I highly recommend
We didnt realize this was a vegetarian/ vegan restaurant
First time there, my husband and I loved everything about it. The cheese plate was amazing, every morsel. The cocktails were delightful, the service attentive from multiple staff, the ambience very funky with upbeat music playing. We loved our entrees and can’t wait to go back again. As a pescatarian, I’m used to finding 1-2 options on a menu, so it was really refreshing to have tons of options!
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.
Everything was amazing
This is an exceptional restaurant with amazingly delicious food. We have dined there several times and it is always a wonderful experience.
Great pancakes! My family and I sat outside on a very hot day but outside was shaded so well I didn't even notice how hot it was.
The service was superb! The food was great also we will most definitely come back whenever we come to Charlotte!
Food was fresh & delicious, service was spectacular, and the ambiance was fun & funky! We loved it!!
Loved the entire experience!
very unusual food cooked artistically. Extremely good service/waiters- knowledgeable and attentive.
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😍😍😍
The web site needs work , it was hard to find the large plates , I clicked on take out and found large plates . Missing out on new business. My wife had come on business dinner
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.
Walking in to an art gallery set the bar high for the dining expirnv
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!
Food was sensational. Staff very friendly and service was excellent!
Amazing food!!! Love the ambience, service, and art gallery!
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.
Excellent service every time! The food is always exciting and delicious.
Awesome vibe service and amazing food
Absolutely fabulous! Yummy food and great service! We will definitely go back!
Great ambiance and service. Friend enjoyed their vegan friendly options
It was perfect - the restaurant is beautiful, the food and cocktails were excellent (and beautiful as well). And the service was fantastic. My first visit and and can’t wait to go back.
Love Alchemy! Food is always amazing. Ivy was fantastic provided excellent service and helped to make for a great night.
Fantastic concept. Creative cuisine in an Arts environment. Seriously, a must do in Charlotte. Maybe even better than I described!
Food was amazing. Service was excellent. Atmosphere was perfect!
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.
We got seats for the bar and I would highly recommend it, service was excellent and the bartenders gave excellent suggestions and made for a great evening. Would go back again. Also the fried artichoke sauces were epic!
The best food we’ve had in Charlotte - wonderful place experience
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.
It was excellent. My server recommended the best meal for me and was constantly checking up on me.
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.
So unique and amazing from start to finish. From service to food to ambiance
Food and service were great! We really enjoyed our meal. The art was a bit bizarre but overall, we would absolutely come again and recommend!
Kudos to Chef Ken and his team! Loved the artichoke hearts and shrimp & gnocchi!
