Before moving from Port Townsend to Portland a year and a half ago, we had rated Alchemy as tops in Port Townsend. We returned to Port Townsend on a visit, and had occasion to have lunch at Alchemy two days in a row. We had poor experiences on both days. On Friday, as part of a group of 7, I... More

This was our second visit to this establishment and the food and service was exactly as I remembered. I think we even had the same server. We started with oysters and I had the seafood paella and my boyfriend had the beef tenderloin. The paella was fully loaded with salmon, halibut, clams, shrimp and mussels in a really fragrant and...

We were there for lunch once, remember it was a happy place to be. Service was excellent but we haven't returned, probably because it was pricey without compelling menu items.

My friends and I had dinner at Alchemy and it was scrumptious! I had duck and my friend had the manicotti and we shared. I couldn't tell which was my favorite! And the saffron rice from our other dining partner was amazing! Our service was 5 star even though our prices were not. First place I've ever been where my... More

We visited for one meal -- the wine selection is excellent and varied, the server was exceptionally accommodating and knowledgable about the wines, and the food we had was exceptional. The ciders were good. The offering of small plates makes the tasting experience interesting and challenging. Onion soup, country pate, the duck breast and the Ice cream were all perfectly... More

This spot had a great staff and setting. The menu is interesting but the food is average for a restaurant at this price point. The food was also not spiced to our tastes but the quality was fine.

My wife and I love to go here and order a appetizers or small plates and wine. We usually order a favorite and something a bit adventurous. The service has always been very good and the atmosphere is on the romantic side. They also have a good variety of full entrees, so you get to choose your dining experience. OK,... More

The atmosphere was great, the food and the service just excellent. It was a quiet evening, but with sound deadening I think that even at a busy time it would be comfortable. The menu is very different to the usual PT fare The wine list is extensive.. Not too expensive for the service and quality. The wait staff were exceptionally... More

We walked I. And found two seats at the lovely bar and knew we would like it as the bartender, Alexander, immediately noticed us gave us menus and told us it might take a moment to get to us. Then later because our cheese plate (which was delicious) took a while to arrive he gave us a complimentary olive dish... More
