Delicious and nutritious. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The food was so tasty with the paired drinks . Booking online was a breeze. We were allowed to take our dessert home as we couldn't fit it in. Highly recommend if in Sydney. We heard about Alibi on Plant Proof podcast on Spotify 💛🍄. We're from Hobart, Tas.

We've eaten at Alibi twice now and we had the same experience both times. Really delicious food, and one of the nicer plant based restaurant options, but the experience is let down by the service and setting. Both times there were really long wait times between courses. We recently did the tasting menu with wine pairing and they’d bring the paired wines out but we would have finished them by the time the food came as we had to wait so long. And you’re sandwiched in like sardines so can’t have a private conversation as you can hear everything on the table next to you. Such a shame as the food is really delicious.

Such a wonderful experience at Alibi restaurant. The 8 course menu was a delight! Our favs were the kimchi dumplings, salt baked celeriac, and chocolate raspberry tarte. The servers went above and beyond for us — will definitely be back!

Service was incredible, such charismatic and warm servers! Food was outstanding, perfect for non-vegans also - the taste was so light and unlike anything I’ve had before! Incredible restaurant also, the atmosphere was very trendy and had a great energy.

We did the stay and dinner package. The room was great and the space is really nice but the food courses were rushed out, some meant to be hot were cool, and a few dishes missed the mark. The dumplings were awesome but the charcoal buns were grainy and had very little filling to dough ratio. overally, it’s a cool spot and love that they are 100% vegan but some things need to be improved.

I had a tasting menu, wasn't up to my expectations.. and some other tables who also ordered same tasting menu had similar confused look on the face as we did. May give it another try with bar food? but definitely not recommend tasting menu.. & the wait staffs were not very friendly either.

Overall we had an enjoyable night. The ambiance and music were great, the service was really good, the wine selection was great, but for us, the food was very average. Extremely small portions and nothing to write home about. The margarita pizza was the most appetizing thing!

The food and beverages were outstanding- truly!
I can’t wait to bring others!

Whilst the staff were super attentive we had 3 or 4 different waiters which seemed unnecessary and I had to check in about a forgotten wine order - not a big deal, and they were very busy - however this might have not happened had we been assigned one waiter? 🤷🏻‍♀️

The booth seating was extremely comfortable and the addition of heaters and blankets made it extra cosy ☺️

I booked a table here for my best friends birthday on Saturday night. We got there, took awhile to be served to then be taken to our table which was not what i had requested months ago when i booked it. We were taken to a shared large bench looking table, where we ended up having to sit next to eachother. We asked to be moved and told them we had booked months ago for a nice table and they refused to move us as all the other tables were booked. We did not enjoy this experience at all and the only reason we would go back was because of the setting and the restaurant itself, how beautiful it was but other than that i would not recommend anyone to go here. Extremely dissapointed and especially because it was suppose to be a special dinner for my friend. This experience was no suprise to her as she had previously been here before with her partner and had the exact same problems.

The food was a little disappointing.
Portobello mushroom for the main was not nice at all, sweet potato main was okay.
Pizza crust wasn't right, nothing like Italian pizza should be, too crunchy and not tasty.
Drinks were nice though and service is pretty good, apart from the very beginning when we had to wait ages to be seated.

Divine vegan food! Complex layering of flavours that were so delicious. We enjoyed every single dish. My favourites were the kimchi dumplings and the leeks.

Beautiful food and interesting and intriguing ambiance which matched the unique dining experience.

Great overall service and some great suggestions.

The value was aligned to the modern and exquisite food and service. If you’ve not experienced this yet... I’d highly recommend. You won’t be disappointed, and the price is worth it.

I've eaten out at a lot of places around Sydney, but I'm yet to find a place that beats Alibi. The atmosphere is second to none. It is very relaxed, and yet also classy. Their food is delicious. It is difficult to find a quality vegan restaurant in Sydney. Other restaurants often serve ordinary dishes and use unhealthy ingredients. Alibi serves gourmet vegan meals with quality ingredients at very affordable prices. Also the staff are always so friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Alibi’s worth the visit just for the beautiful, theatrical presentation of the cocktails (which are pretty tasty too). It’s a quirky little space with great service and an inventive plant based menu. Most are on point - cheese board, charcoal steamed buns, coconut cream pie (that crust) although I didn’t love the loaded sweet potato. The menu changes seasonally so you’re sure to find plenty of mouth-watering options.

Amazing Vegan food, So good that anyone who is not Vegan would enjoy it. A wonderful eclectic place, all the staff were so nice and nothing too much trouble. We are only hoping that the lovely lady whose creation it is will get to our state.
