    My vegan friend really rated this place. We also thought it was a fantastic place. The Chick’n burger was our fave. We went for a 50th dinner. And the lovely French waitress provided a wonderful birthday experience. Well done Alibi!

    No atmosphere for a Saturday night. Staff not familiar with their own restaurant unable to confidently confirm if the menu was vegan. First waiter saying “oh um I think it’s plant based, or vegetarian. Second bar team member saying it’s fully vegan? Food was great however I would not recommend this to anyone. Save your money, not what you would expect from a fancy restaurant.

    My partner and I have been to Alibis a few times and we usually love it, but this time the whole place was different, the atmosphere wasn’t as cozy and the service wasn’t very good, we had to ask for water twice. Also we ordered burgers because we’ve had burgers from there before and why were delicious but this was a new burger and it was just way too much mayo it was sickening. I don’t think you should add more mayo to a burger that already has a mayo based slaw. I liked the way the restaurant looked before and I like the old menu more.

    I dont think we got the full Alibi experience eating on a Sunday evening. Not only was the menu quite limited, but you cannot eat at the restaurant tables, and staff were also running the bar. The food was quite tasty, especially the flatbread, and the eggplant, but it was often lukewarm, which was disappointing. We will return, but not on a Sunday evening.

    Our group of four tried all four “small” dishes as we are not big eaters. They were all absolutely delicious and just the right size to satisfy. Full marks to the very creative vegan chef(s) and to our very attentive and hospitable Brazilian waitress. The imaginative modern interior set within a giant wool handling facility added to our overall memorable and enjoyable evening.

    Food was nice, but a couple meals did not come out hot. Thought that some of the items were over priced considering what the items were. Music was super low, could've added more of a mood if the music was up more, especially because the restaurant was quiet. Bartenders and staff were lovely- everybody was super friendly. At one point our food came out, though it was taken away because no cutlery was laid down first and then we had to wait extra minutes for our food to come back out which was a little odd. Appreciate the experience, hopefully it does better and it was just an off day.

    Long time patron - this last visit was truely a mess. The new renovation clunky and poorly designed with limited exits and impossible to eat from bar seating. Staff didn't seem to know what they were doing and took 10 min to take our order at the bar, and we could see them googling drink recipes in front of us. I asked for water 3 times and no one bought any over in the 90 min we were there. Even finding a working bathroom took 15 min - first set behind Alibi were locked, second set by the lobby were all out of order, so I had to get someone to unlock them for me. The back on the building also vaguely smelt like sewerage? Overall a poor experience which is such a shame because Alibi has always been fantastic. Do better guys.

    Waiters made so many mistakes. They were incompetent on every level. For such an incredibly expensive bill I would not only expect the food to be amazing but the whole experience, which fell remarkably short. The menu was confusing which after so many questions we still did not understand. There was no way of knowing was size the food was going to be. Half the food/ drinks were delicious and half were absolutely terrible. I was embarrassed I brought my whole team here and spent the weekend apologising.

    Overall experience was deceitful. Nobody really cared about us when we arrived, entrance of the high tea area was hard to find due to adjacent worksite (also pretty noisy and distracting). High tea was good, interesting approach but honestly a bit overpriced. Won’t do it again but may come back for lunch or dinner.

All of the food was incredible and we can’t wait to come back when the menu changes. What made our experience even better was our waiter Josh, he was so attentive, entertaining and explained every element of the dishes to us. Josh is such a valuable employee and really made our experience a 10/10 at Alibi. Thank you so much for having us!

    Food was fantastic and the setting was really nice. Music was quite loud for a venue that didn’t have a lot of people. Main improvement to suggest is to get the timing of the food delivery a bit more consistent. The first few dishes cal very quickly, a bit of a wait then next few dishes fairly well timed, then a long wait for last dishes and an eternity to close the dinner out. The wine ordered came toward the end of the mains which also was disappointing given it was ordered with plenty of time ahead of the mains coming.
