Alchemy Restaurant and Bar
Very slow in the beginning. About 45 min to get drinks but very quick once they got everything started. Confused some table numbers and just seemed very off that evening. We usually have great service. Was served soup with no spoon and had to wait a while before getting to eat.
Food was excellent and our server was incredibly kind.
Just not worth 400$
We sampled appetizers, main courses, desserts and the hand-made cocktails. All were well prepared, presented, and were flavorful renditions. Great atmosphere and attentive service. Would definitely go back again.
So glad you enjoyed your meal with us. Hope you can join us again soon.
Fantastic fare, great service (despite staffing issues happening right now), perfect setting for a nice meal and/or drinks. We adore this place.
We so appreciate you dining with us and taking the time to write. We will be sure to pass along the praise to the kitchen and wait staff. Hope you can join us again soon.
Excellent service. Always available without hovering. Very good food with excellent seasoning and spice. Well balanced. Very good presentation.
Charming Victorian house setting. The food and presentation were wonderful. The service couldn’t have been better. Maria made our evening extra special!
Thank you so much for joining us. I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed your evening. We'll be sure to let Maria know that she made it that much better.
Always an exceptional experience.
Went for our anniversary and it was lovely. Mario was a wonderful server and the food was delicious! Bone marrow butter, octopus, Osso bucco!! So good!!
Best wine & spirits in the valley. the cuisine is world class !
We always enjoy our dinner and the exceptional service we receive here. I had the Corn Ricotta Caramelle Pasta. It was not what I excepted but was surprised at how delicious it tasted. The Lamb Osso Bucco was also very delicious.
Of course the drinks are always wonderfully delightful as well.
The knowledge the mixologist have is very impressive.
A special shout out to Walker, she is the best ever and I appreciate her remembering what we like.
And the Chef he really did a great job. I’m already hungry for more.
Just lovely! Food, service, ambiance were all exquisite.
Service was excellent, atmosphere warm and social, best speakeasy in Ashland.
The food has been consistently excellent and interesting, well presented
Hidden gem in Ashland Oregon
Nice place. Last service is at 7:00pm. Also has a great looking bar, but that closed early too.
Stewart was an extremely accomplished server; knowledgeable, friendly and went out of his way to assure our dining pleasure.
The food was rather ordinary, the cheese tray was very skimpy and poorly designed. Overall, it has declined since our last visit.
Amazing experience ! The food,the Atmosphere, and one of the best bars I’ve ever been . The chef is brilliant and the bartenders true mixologists.
Our waitress was fantastic, the only place in Ashland that actively kept our water full, a small detail I really appreciated. My partner and I enjoyed our meal and drinks, and the outdoor seating is tucked back from the main road. Overall a fantastic choice
Absolutely wonderful! One of the best restaurant experiences ever!
Great food and the loveliest of waiters. We loved the mushroom flan!
This was a great find for us in Ashland! We’ll definitely put it on our list of regulars when we return! Thanks Hanks!
Thanks so much for joining us! Always happy to have more regulars, and we look forward to you joining us again soon.
I understand Covid has hit businesses, especially restaurants hard. We too have been impacted by Covid. We decided to spend time with friends and money on what was supposed to be a great meal at Alchemy. Sadly, the experience fell short. We waited for 55 minutes to receive our first cocktail, which was not even what we ordered. After that we waited again for wine and again, got the wrong drinks. The appetizers came before the (wrong) wine and two orders were delivered while the other three came later. We had to walk down to the bar to get ice and flag down another waiter for help on several occasions. It was so awful that it was funny. The food was delicious. Best food in Ashland. But I was SHOCKED when the bill came and not only did they charge us for the wrong wine — they even already added a 20% tip! Never have I experienced service like this without a manager or owner coming over to check in, apologize or try to make it right. Sorely disappointed.
I'm so sorry that your evening was marred by unfortunate blunders and wait times. It was your server's first night taking tables, and he was too new and made some big mistakes, but that does not make waits ok. Our manager did talk to several of your party members about the dinner, and apologized as well. I would like to send you a gift certificate, please let us know where to send it. The 20% tip was the system tagging a large 2 table party, and should not have been applied with what happened.
Great ambiance and service. We were very disappointed with the menu selections
Thank you for joining us. I'm sorry to hear that you did like the menu. We make sure our menus are posted on our website, on the reader board outside the restaurant, and at the front door as you walk in. We also change menus seasonally, as products change. We always welcome constructive feedback as there is always room for improvement, and would be happy to hear what we could have done to improve your evening.
Lovely venue very busy — staff was polite but likely due to Covid service was a bit lagging
Thanks so much for dining with us. We have been struggling with being short staffed like much of the industry. I'm glad you enjoyed your meal and we hope to have a smoother service next time for you.
Went here a few weeks ago and didn’t have the best experience. However, the restaurant contacted me and due to their desire to make up for the night, I will be returning.
It meant a lot to me that they were so motivated to give me a good experience.
I am so sorry that you had such a frustrating experience. Through a series of unfortunate events you were seated at the wrong table. I spoke with David. a server, and he mentioned that he had swung by, apologized for the wait, and said he would be there as soon as possible. I know that our restaurant manager has reached out via phone to speak with you and offer a gift certificate, but we haven't been able to reach you on the phone. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you.
From the moment we walked in the service was exceptional. Attentive staff. Took the time to find a wine that complimented both of our dinners. Sat in the bar and enjoyed watching the bartenders mix their creations. Cocktails were beautifully presented. I had the Duck Confit and my husband had the ribeye. Both were excellent but the Duck was absolutely perfect. We will be back!
Thank you so much for the kind words. The staff have been working very hard to make sure that it is a top notch experience. I will be sure to pass along all the compliments to the kitchen as well. Hope you can join us again soon.
My daughter and I make the trip from L.A. to Portland and back again twice a year. We love staying at the Winchester, but the highlight is the restaurant, The Alchemy. The food is out of this world, the wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable and it is not crazy expensive. Breakfast is included if you stay at the hotel and breakfast at the Alchemy is spectacular. We have both traveled widely around the world and agree the pastry we had was the best we had ever had. I tried to purchase more but the waiter told me the chef makes just enough for the breakfast crowd. I was so sad. Go there if you are ever in Ashland!
It was crowded , but service was very good. I had the Osso Buco which was fabulous, and my friend had the halibut which was also very good. It’s a bit pricey but worth it.
Very nice dining experience. Great food and wine. Friendly staff. Reservation process was a little confused, but they were just getting back to full service. I would certainly return.
We were told about Alchemy when we were wine tasting. What a great recommendation. Went with the Dealers Choice at the bar for openers. The bartender made us custom drinks to match our taste and liquor preferences. From there we had the Mushroom/Mushroom which was awesome. The Lamb and Pasta was excellent. Wine list was legit. Definitely going back to Alchemy!
Thanks for joining us! Glad it proved to be the perfect after tasting spot. Hope you can join us again another time.
It's not as good as it used to be. The chef seems to feel that almost every dish has to have a spicy component. That's not good for people that can't handle heat in their food. They are also understaffed.
Thank you so much for joining us. We are indeed understaffed, and have been working diligently to hire more servers, but the industry is suffering a staffing crisis currently and we're doing our best. I'm sorry to hear that you felt things were too spicy. None of the dishes are made with a spicy component, and spiciness is terribly subjective. We are always happy to avoid all spice if that is an issue and can always do our best to accommodate your palate if communicated to us.
Great experience and amazing food!
Thank you so much for joining us! So glad you had a great time.
Post pandemic, it seemed as though hospitality had lost much of its standard. Not here.
Every staff member took pride in their role at Alchemy. Our server and the kitchen were more than accommodating with my dietary restrictions. The mushroom mushroom was luxuriously rich and the lamb was a sensational fusion of slightly unexpected ingredients. You could taste the inspired passion in the food. We cannot wait to return.
Thank you for the kind words! It truly means a lot to us that the efforts are appreciated. We want to make sure everyone feels taken care of. I'm so glad you enjoyed your time with us and I hope you can join us again soon.
The new chef is amazing! Loved our halibut and ribeye dinners. Had the scallops appetizer and the flavor was so delicious.
Thank you for joining us! I'm so glad you enjoyed your meal. I'll be sure to pass the praise along to the Chef and the kitchen.
Greeted very courteously and seated immediately. Water service very efficient. Waiter (Tom) arrived quickly and answered questions effectively. Salad, soup and bread arrived together. Wine was very good. Entrees outstanding and Tom just attentive enough throughout.
We’ll be back!
Cheers! I'll be sure to let Tom know, and I'm so glad you enjoyed your time with us. I hope you can join us again soon.
Celebrated our anniversary and every bite was perfection. Definitely pricey,
But for a special night it was well deserved. Our waiter was amazing and the food was incredible.
Two couples dined outdoors on a Thursday night. The setting was comfortable and the service was excellent. The menu was somewhat limited but adequate. Bread was listed with appetizers and was worth the cost. The food was very good quality. One ribeye was ordered medium and was served significantly undercooked. The replacement steak was comped which was a pleasant surprise. The wine list was accessible only with a device and a QRL scan but was quite extensive and more than adequate for our needs. We would certainly return.
Our entire dinner experience was fabulous. From our wine and cocktail start to the lemon tarts dessert, we totally loved the meal. My wife did three small plates and I had a starter of seared scallops followed by fresh rock fish and frittes. Fresh mozzarella, pressed ricotta, beautiful greens plus a bowl of sautéed mushrooms topped with a lovely sauce elicited many oohs and awwws from my lovely wife. I inadvertently ordered the rock fish, which was just fish & chips in disguise. It was delicious, but a mistake by me. We live near the ocean and get rock fish frequently at home. I will not make that mistake again. No worries though. We will definitely return and I will revise my ordering arrangement. You definitely need to eat at Alchemy. It’s one of the best dining experiences in all of southern Oregon.
That is high praise, and we are flattered. Thank you so much. We are all so glad you enjoyed your dining experience with us. I hope you can explore the menu further next time. All the best.
Delicious Lamb Osso Bucco. Lovely selection of bread and compound butters. Burrata salad creamy and delicious.
Great service. Truly a special dinner.
We had a terrific meal! Highly recommend the tenderloin. We have another reservation in 8 days with another couple and are very much looking forward to dining again.
Excellent surroundings, excellent food, excellent waiter; nothing left to be said.
