The first 2 choices of wine we asked for were 'out of stock'. We then waited for over 20 minutes to get our bottle of wine, when the waitress poured the red wine she spilled it every time. My partner was wearing white and had red wine drops on the shirt. We sat for a further 20 minutes with dirty... More

Just all a bit poncy for me. Maybe for a special occasion for people who don't eat out much, as it felt like it it was full of anniversary, first dates etc. Brisbane quiet in evening this time of year but by 9pm everyone packing up to go home! Had halloumi to start with Nduja. Very chewy and flavourless. Waitress... More

This is a great place for a special dinner and fine dining. The soft shell crab is the best I've ever had. The spiced Duck and Wagu are excellent. I'd strongly recommend the steak prepared medium. The service is excellent. The waiters noticed my wife was old so they adjusted the air con vents and gave her a shawl to... More

I've been here maybe half a dozen times over the last ten years for romantic meals, and business meals & functions. This time was an anniversary lunch, and it was great. We had the degustation menu, and shared the matching wine as we both had to drive home. Food was very good - creative, well executed and timed to perfection.... More

We were able to sit outside and enjoy the view of the water whilst we took part in the exquisite tasting menu with wines. It was a sheer delight every mouthful was perfect. The waiting staff could not have been more helpful and really knew their stuff. We finished off with the Chef's Liquid Nitrogen Delights which were great fun!... More

I agree with a few other recent reviewers, in that our experience was disappointing and not as good as previous occasions. On arrival, the front of house was quite cold, not even a hello from the female ?Maitre d. Despite booking a specific table for two, it was clear from her comments to the waiter that we were to be...

While the menu selection was not expansive, the meals were excellent, the view was wonderful and the service was professional.

Hands down one of the best dining experiences I've had in a while. Food and Wine Menu to die for ambience was perfect and the staff exceptional! Entrée, mains and desert and wine perfectly matched, we will be back!

I think Alchemy is resting on its past because don't think the present is anywhere as good as its peers nearby, or as it was. It is also incredibly overpriced. I had a fairly simple main course special veal blackstrap for $50 that wasn't really very special at all. The menu is fairly low key compared to others close. Good... More
