We happened upon Alchemy by chance and were very pleased we did. Everything we thought by looking through the window turned out to be true and yet even better. These guys are seriously excellent at preparing and serving good food at reasonable prices in a most enjoyable and comfortable environment. I had two appetisers (scallops and duck in a lettuce wrap) both delicious and generous portions. My wife ordered the crab and asparagus salad which she thought delicious. All washed down with Cava and recommended white Pinot Gris and Red blend. Service was delightful - just so professional yet warmly welcoming and relaxing I could have spent hours there upstairs in front of the fire with a brandy or two - but we have cycling tomorrow and a whole island to explore so perhaps just as well we walked home to our inn. I thoroughly recommend this charming and most relaxed restaurant.

Our "go to" restaurant Atria was closed for a private party and they recommend Alchemy. We REALLY enjoyed our dinner at the bar. Crispy pork belly perfectly cooked. Bag of fried oysters were an indulgence we don't often order. Be aware that the portion is HUGE. The bartender is super attentive (even when slammed) and makes exceptional cocktails. The place is very nice and has two levels although we did not venture upstairs.

Dined here the other night and had a very enjoyable dinner. Service was excellent. Had their bag of fried oysters, which were fresh and presented in a fun manner. The oysters were plentiful, and we paired it with a bottle of Sancerre. Very nice evening meal.

Went to Alchemy after the Christmas stroll in Edgartown. What a delight! We were planning on having drinks and appetizers, but the appetizer menu was fairly limited and the bay scallop and pasta special sounded intriguing, so we ordered that. It. Was. Amazing! Perfectly cooked fresh Vineyard bay scallops with spinach, garlic and these tiny cheese ravioli-type pasta - fabulous! Add to that my new favorite drink, French Quarter, and the always gracious, attentive-without-being-intrusive service, and we had a perfect evening. Alchemy never disappoints!
