    We had another great meal at Alchemi. I had the Chi Chee Salmon, and it was wonderful. Other had Chicken Tikka, the Michigan Lamb Ragu, and Butternut Squash Ravioli, and everyone raves about their food.

    We arrived at 7:20 for our 7:30 reservation and was seated. Our waiter took our drink order and delivered the drinks I’m approximately 15 minutes. He then took our appetizer order which took roughly 20 minutes to arrive. We ordered the burnt ends to share and they arrived cold. Waiter came back and took our entree orders. I ordered the chicken tikka masala and my husband ordered the Thai noodles with shrimp and lobster. We also ordered a bottle of wine. The wine came but the food did not. When questioned about our dinner order, the waiter stated that the system messed up. We waited another 20 minutes and no food. I checked my watch and it was 9:05 and entrees had not arrived. The experience and service was terrible. Diner beware!!!

    Ruined my brothers birthday. 1) Took 20 minutes for someone to check on us when we were seated. I ended up calling over the host and he responded rudely that the waitress would get to us when she gets to us… 2) when waitress finally checked on us she had a sour attitude, and made our party of four uncomfortable. We planned to have dinner but due to such poor service we left after one round of drinks. Thankfully I know the owner of Tequila Blue and he was able to get a us a table and save the night.

    We had a date night here. The food was really delicious! Subtracted 1 star because we booked for a high top table and they sat us in the back booth near the register and that lobster tail on the pad tai was so rubbery, we barely got the the meat out. All in all, we had a great time will definitely come back. The drinks are overpriced so I’d recommend ordering wine.

    Service was fantastic and it was such a cool place! We loved our meals - Lamb Ragu and the steak. Plating was beautiful! The steak was elevated past your average steak because of the rub on it. The drinks were tasty but on the pricier side. The food was priced perfectly. We didn't love our buratta appetizer but I'm not holding that against them since we picked it and that's just a preference. Creme Brulee was a wonderful dessert! This place was the highlight of my night and I would love to visit again!

    I went here for a date night with my boyfriend. Neither of us had been here yet and we were very impressed with the food quality and the service. The ambiance was wonderful, they even have a nice space to hold an even on the other side of the restaurant. Below the restaurant is a cool speakeasy style bar that also has a food menu. We had just eaten so we didn’t order food but the drinks we had were really good. I would definitely go back and recommend if you haven’t been. Great new spot in RO!

    The food was great. Unfortunately the business, like many today, is short handed. Our waitress was wonderful, but did not have enough help to make our dining experience special. I felt bad for her- and hope they try to solve this problem because across our crowd, it was obvious.

    Service a bit slow but still very good. Burrata served too chilled, got much better as it came to room temp. Lamb noodles tasty - comfort food. Pad Thai reinterpretation outstanding, shrimp & lobster prepared perfectly. Drinks were the pinnacle of the experience. True artisan triumph, aesthetically pleasing and wonderful taste.

    I would say this is an underrated establishment. It was a quiet night in Royal Oak, maybe a lot of people were down in Ferndale for the street fair, but the place should have been a lot busier for the food, drinks and ambience. We enjoyed our time there, we were never rushed, drinks were good. I would recommend it certainly. Pad Thai was amazing (lobster tail on it wasn't that good, though). The steak was great. The burnt ends were astonishingly good and on par with bbq I have had in Kansas City and Austin. The honey comb with the buratta was a wonderfully sweet touch. Just a well executed meal.

    Service was fantastic. We had the lamb chops and NY steak - both delicious and cooked exactly how we requested. We had the Trillionare and Moscow Mule to drink…both very good. The ice cream flight was the perfect thing to end the meal with. Will definitely go back. Highly recommend.

    So pleased worth the experience! I have been a regular customer at Johnny’s (below Alchemi), and was looking forward to more opportunities to enjoy chef Johnny’s expanded menu/ venue. Started with the Gruyère spread app, which was fantastic. I’d had the Choo Chee salmon before, and enjoyed it , but saw that the lobster and shrimp pad Thai was popular. It did not disappoint! A healthy portion of shrimp and a lobster tail. Yum! Others had a beef cheek ravioli which was reportedly delish and a beef tip thing which was also enjoyed. I’m not a meat-eater, so I can’t provide a first hand account. The place is beautiful and serene. And I saw some drinks from Johnny’s being served, which I know are also great and creative. The service was truly outstanding, by the way!
