I go to Martha's Vineyard to relax, see the sights, and enjoy some small-town charm and history. I never knew I was missing out on an incredible dining experience. My meal at Alchemy was the best I've had in a long while. The food was incredible. The four of us had three appetizers, four entrees, and a dessert, and all... More

Alchemy is about as centrally located as imaginable in Edgartown. This means easy access on foot, a bit more stressful trying to arrive by car and find a parking space. But we had no such problem during our off-season visit. We were seated in a mezzanine-type floor with a view into the larger dining room below. It's a unique layout... More

We happened in here while waiting for a table at another restaurant but decided to stay. The bartender was fabulous and convinced us to stay for dinner. While the menu is a little eclectic, everything we ordered was good and had so much flavor. We had the fresh oysters and squash bisque to start. The oysters were yummy and the... More

My wife and I met my parents for dinner on a Saturday night and while the food was good, I was not blown away and I think I should have been for this price level. I live in Milton and every dish I've had at Steel & Rye has been better. If you expect outstanding, you might wind up disappointed.

It's a fancy restaurant with fancy dishes and excellent presentation located in the heart of edgatrown with plenty of stores and beautiful sightseeing . The quality of the food is good . Staff not very friendly. Excellent bar with many cocktail options . You need to make a reservation

Nice place with welcoming staff. Good cocktails were served. Very strong but very nice. The restaurant was not too busy so we may have missed some of the buzz that we had heard about. Our starters, crab salad and pork belly were very good. The mains, crispy chicken and the lobster not so good.

We heard about this place from our concierge at Winnetu. Appetizers were good. I recommend the octopus. For dinner my husband ordered the hangar steak. The meat was chewy and the cauliflower was like a soup. The gentleman sitting next to us said he ordered it last night and it look nothing like what my husband was serve. Bummer. Our... More

We were a large group and shared many dishes. The food was good but maybe a smaller group would have been better. Quiet ambience and better suited for two or four person groups.

A pleasent, but not outstanding, dining choice on the Vineyard.....there are so many (local) better choices to be had. An interesting, but not exceptional menu. Acoustics make dinner conversation challenging, and if you're sitting down stairs you're apted to be by the kitchen and the extreme bustle that goes with that. The food is fine, but not worth all the... More

In a town where so much can be over the top, Alchemy hits the right balance. Delicious food, great service, fine drinks..all in a relaxed and friendly setting. My halibut was well prepared, creative with yummy touches; and the steak my husband had was equal to that served in my upscale, city steak houses. Definitely a restaurant that is on... More
