    The taramasalata and tzatziki dips with pita bread and grilled whole snapper were good; however, the slow roasted lamb shoulder was slightly underwhelming.

    The food was very good and as you'd expect generous in servings . The service is great but it's not a place for a quiet dinner. Large tables and hard surfaces , part of its charm, echo loud conversations .

    Booked with my wife as part of our anniversary celebration, indicated that on the booking but no reference/acknowledgement made whilst dining there. We were initially seated next to the kitchen and benchtop where the spare plates and serviettes were kept, plus being directly opposite the wood fired oven was a bit warm. Top marks to management who were able to move us to another table before our meals were served. Food and service were great. Only downside was the noisy ambience. This was exacerbated by the loud music which meant people had to speak louder to be heard. I don't understand why the restaurant needs loud music especially the type that was being played on the evening. Just stick to providing good service and delicious meals and who knows a hat or two may be in the offering.

    Such a fabulous restaurant, modern sophisticated Greek food, loved the service, great vibe. If you are after the vegan/vege menu as we were for one of our group, call ahead, the options are what they are, but they did try their best to accommodate given the menu options, but very sweet about trying.

    I have been to Alpha 4 times in the past four months. I can say our last dinner was disappointing. We had a booking for 6pm, the restaurant opened at 6. However did not allow patrons in before that time. There were many many patrons waiting outside including some senior citizens and also a lady on crutches. I found this very very demeaning, the Maitre De greeted people without a booking like they were outsiders and even told my party if our late arrival didn’t arrive soon we would need to be moved to a smaller table. He was not friendly or welcoming and berated staff in front of patrons. As much as we love the food. We won’t be back.

    Alpha is like being in Greece - big plates of delicious food, families and groups of people enjoying themselves. It can be a bit noisy but not so you can’t hear each other. The choice of wine is also extensive and the desserts outstanding. Possibly the best Taramasalata in Sydney. We got the fixed menu (Yiayias) - more than enough food.

    From the attentive service to the wonderful food and wine selection Alpha Restaurant delivered. The lamb melted off the bone, the Saganaki had layers of surprise and the chicken souvlaki delighted our palettes with a traditional but unusual side of watermelon and feta. We wrapped up with meal with traditional coffee and loukoumades. A night to remember 💙🇬🇷

    The saganaki was outstanding which is not to demean the other dishes which were fabulous. Excellent service from wait staff. Dishes appeared in a timely fashion. Chef team did an excellent job- most on view in open kitchen. Look forward to a return visit when next in Sydney.

    Greated by a lovely host at the door and shown to our table. Our waiter for the night was fantastic, very attentive. Everything came out without any delay. Food was lovely. Brought out our dessert with a candle in it for my mum as it was an early birthday night out for her. Its a lovely restaurant. This was my second time at the restaurant and would definately go back and would recommend.

    This was the best dining experience I have had in such a long time. We walked into such an amazing venue which had a brilliant atmosphere, lighting and mood. It felt spacious yet busy and was truly just such a beautiful venue. We also had the nicest waiter who helped us with the menu and catered to every request! The service felt kind, not rushed and was not overbearing. This kind of service is what keeps customers coming back and we will all spread the word of this amazing restaurant purely based on how nice (and rare) this was. Food was impeccable, standouts were the chicken skewers with watermelon, feta, olive and the spanakopita (a surprise!). Highly recommend especially for a special occasion.

    We were directed to an isolated table far away from any other tables and near an exit with a pile of spare chairs for company! We refused and after some hesitancy we were directed to an empty table in the main part of the restaurant.No respectable restaurant owner with pride in there establishment would set up a dining table for anyone to sit at in this manner.More importantly we will not return for fear we would be forced to endure a similar experience. All this is a pity given the food was excellent and ambience otherwise very nice.

    Some waiters were delightful. Some totally uninterested. Food consistently amazing. But the spacing of food could have been better. 3 entrees coming out at once makes you feel like you’re there for a short time, not a good time. Overall I’d go back. But I’d be more insistent on food coming out a pace where you don’t feel like you’re being rushed out.
