    This was our 3rd visit to Alia bar, and it was utterly appalling. Our booking was 7:30 our entrees and mains were dumped on the table at 9:30 all together and served cold! I don’t understand how we can be served cold food when by that time the restaurant was almost empty. They had ran out of focaccia (we weren’t a late booking so I don’t understand how) we had to ask for water to be served, and had to ask for our plates to be cleared so we could serve the birthday cake. Completely and utterly disappointing all round; service and cold food.

    This was such a nice venue! The food was delicious and the space was great. Our favour dish was the phyllo wrapped baked feta with honey and pistachio! A special mention to the staff, they let me drop off a cake for my partners birthday and brought it out without him knowing. They also served us complimentary champagne for his birthday. Overall a great experience, we will be back Definitely recommend!

    Elegant setting, friendly wait staff, delicious and plentiful food. The 3 course set menu excellent value for money and is well paced in its delivery. Even then, servings are generous and we had leftovers to take home to continue enjoying Alia's cooking.

    The food was really tasty and very good value. We did the set menu for 4 people and it was honestly probably enough to comfortably feed 6. The wines we had were also very nice. Highly recommend dining here.

    Hi Anon, What a shame you didn't raise your disappointment at the time of dining with our service team, hence, it is difficult to give credibility to reviews such as this. Director / Alia Bar

    While the food was generally good, the service was patchy and took too long and the noise level made it hard for 6 of us sitting at a round table to converse. None of us will return to Alia Bar.
    Alia BarResponded on 9 May 2024
    Hi Belinda, Thank you for your feedback. What a shame you didn't raise your concerns about the noise level and service with our service team member when you were dining. We are a very gracious team and pride ourselves as customer centric, we would have happily accommodated your request. I do hope you visit again. Director/Alia Bar

    Alia was great! Food was delicious, absolutely authentic Greek experience. Staff were friendly and attentive and the bar staff made amazing cocktails. Best Whisky Old Fashioned I’ve had for a long time. Favourite dish was the saganaki, with the lamb chops and lemon potatoes a close second. Wait staff seat you and provide menus but didn’t explain to order via the QR code on the table. Also, if you want dishes to come out in a particular order you’ll need to order through the staff as the app just puts everything through at the same time. Overall a great experience! Lovely ambiance. Pricey, ($20 for an Old Fashioned) but would recommend for special occasions. Not really suitable for kids, it’s more up-market.
    Alia BarResponded on 9 May 2024
    Hi ChrisS, What a lovely review and your feedback is greatly appreciated by our Alia team. We are thrilled that you all had a marvelous time and enjoyed our cocktails, cuisine and service. We have worked on the QR system and to date this is seamless, so thank you for bringing this to our attention. Thank you for taking the time and your feedback is invaluable. We look forward to warmly welcoming you all back for another fabulous experience at Alia Bar. Director/Alia Bar

    Great to see a new Greek restaurant in Canberra! The food was delicious - perfectly cooked Greek food, beautifully presented. We had the Lamb Gyros and the Chicken Souvlaki and both were wonderful.
