Beyond disappointing. I ordered the octopus and it was literally one small piece of octopus with some beans and broth for $36! Complained to manager who said he agreed but it was chefs decision. Average food, lacked atmosphere. Go to 1821 or Apollo when you’re craving Greek food

ALPHA is one of my favorites. The food is always perfect. The service always so so. The floor seems a bit disorganised and the waiters often not very experienced. Maybe it's hard get good waiting staff but you can always train them, as top restaurants do. We keep returning despite this.

We visited Alpha for our anniversary dinner, and were looking forward to trying the restaurant after some strong recommendations.

We were seated at our reserved table quickly and attended to with drinks swiftly. Meze came fast, and was pretty good. Mains arrived after a longer than expected wait, only to be the wrong dishes (despite confirming the order at the point it was taken). No apologies given for their mistake, we were just told we'd have to 'wait 5 minutes' for food. When the dishes came, my other half enjoyed hers, but mine had clearly been kept warm under a grill while hers was re-prepared, and was sadly worse for it.

Our dessert seemed to have got forgotten too – another lengthy wait at an empty table – and sadly the Greek doughnuts tasted under cooked, but were otherwise a fantastic blend of flavours.

I think the restaurant probably caters better to groups trying a wide range of dishes being, and our table of 2 was relatively small ticket by comparison, so not worth the effort / tip ratio.

It's a shame; having been to Greece, and being a fan of Greek food, I felt Alpha did not deliver on what it promised and felt a little thin on quality and impersonal in service.

The food was good although quite oily and heavy. The service was also good. However the place is extremely noisy and hard to have a pleasant evening. I have been there 3 times hoping it was a chance but the same experience every time. Will not be back

Good food, waiters ok but there’s a cultural problem here. Restaurant manager very rude. Did not welcome us instead told us to ensure we gave table back at 8pm. We were seated by an ajar door that let in cold air on a winters night but given a lecture on why we couldn’t change tables with such insights as we’d have to give someone else this table who probably wouldn’t like drafts either. Value is fine and food delicious especially the lamb but otherwise I’d give it a miss

Great Greek food-very tasty and lovely flavors. The service was pretty good as well (except the waiter forgot my beer) but the noise levels was awful-I had to contatnly raise my voice so my partner can hear our conversation. The walls and ceiling has no acoustic absorption or natural surpressent so it constantly bounces peoples voices around. Anyhow still a great place to visit!

The food was beyond amazing everything thing we ordered was really fantastic. We booked for 8:45 but arrived at 9 as we were looking for the way due to the road blockages. The staff were not overly friendly and we could feel they were trying to hurry us up. The atmosphere was not nice at all and we didn’t feel comfortable there at all. And weren’t offered a dessert menu. The overall was not great but the food was phenomenal

The only drawback with the Service rating was that the food came out SOOO fast.... we didn't get time to enjoy and savor the experience of dining there, as the food came flying out. I think we arrive just after midday, and then were gone by 1:30... other than the food was great, and we all had a really nice time.
